Kpridham accepted our stay quickly and responded to our messages in the same manner. She met us on arrival and directed us to a pull through loop in her backyard, with a perfectly level spot looking right out on the water. We didn't get to spend much time visiting, but we really enjoyed what conversation we were able to fit in. Very kind and gracious host, we would love to come back.
K's place was a short but welcome stop on our way to PEI. Her lovely location right on the water provided a nice respite from the road. The mosquitos are no joke, but put on some bug spray and enjoy the amazing calm of the water right at your doorstep. K's information binder was a joy to page through, with its drawings and greetings from folks all over the world! Thank you, K, for your sweet presence and hospitality.
Fabulous Host. Great location. Warm water; great view.
Even though we did not meet, host was unbelievably helpful and welcoming. Location was easy to find and access to the spot was easy.
Spent hours watching the birds on the water. Warm swimming water. Highly recommend and a big Thank You to our host.
Kpridham is a wonderfully welcoming host, with a beautiful property right on the ocean. We are so thankful that she has allowed us to share her little slice of paradise!
We were welcomed heartly and were offered a couple of amenities. It was a great place to stay with a beautiful view over to Northumberlandstrait. Thank you so much for welcoming us!
Wallace was awesome. Great views from the hostess' site. Nova Scotia is lovely this time of year. Very accommodating hostess and great to get to know her. Would definitely recommend this place and if we get back here, we will stop. Local restaurants have great food. Tatamagouche brewery had tasty beer and drive to Halifax was beautiful.
Perfectly level, water front, large mature trees, and the best large slab stairway to a small beach, during low tide. Thank you for sharing 😊
Expect a warm greeting and open arms when you arrive at Semple Close. We spent a delightful evening with our host. With a delicious bottle of wine we began sharing road adventure stories and sailing adventures. Our site overlooked the Northumberland Strait. The cool breeze off the strait was intoxicating and made for a good nights rest. Perfect spot to watch the sun set over the water.
Kpridham, our host, went out of her way to make sure that we had everything we needed. We hope that we will be able to repeat this stay in the future. In the meantime maybe we can talk her into coming to Georgia so that we can return the favor.
Oh, thank you for reconnecting me to my inner child. I haven't drawn or colored in many years.
Our host was willing to share everything she had. Such a caring giving and interesting person. It was fun staying with her. I hope she gets that sailboat someday.
Le terrain de Kerry est situé à l’entrée de la Nouvelle-Écosse. C’est un endroit idéal pour se détendre, pour prendre le temps d’admirer le paysage et pour prendre un petit verre tranquillement. kerry est très sympathique et saura rendre votre séjour agréable. Thanks for everything Kerry!
Kerry is one of the friendliness BW Hosts that I have met & at her beautiful location,
she strives to make your stay fun & enjoyable.
The amenities that she offers is amazing & beyond what most Guests would expect.
My stay was to short but I enjoyed her communications w me about her local area &
the Tides that affect the Wallace Harbor.
I missed seeing a beautiful sunset, but her location is good, clouds permitting.
Thank you Kerry for being so kind to me!
Great host and great accommodations. Swapped traveling stories over a glass of wine. We hope our paths cross again. Highly recommend a stop over here.
Semple Close is a great location right on the waterfront, and waking up to the "view" was a treat unto itself. Kerry is a thoughtful, knowledgeable host and a downright sweet, laid back person. We spent an evening together sipping wine and sharing stories. We think this is what we enjoy most about our experiences with BW. Kerry exemplifies this.
Kerry told us that our 43' DP was the largest rig she's hosted thus far. We snuggled into her driveway and parked in front of her RV. Because we were there for just one night, we only opened our 2 starboard slides (kitchen and BR) and left our long port slide unopened (we were close to the tree line on the port side and didn't need to take any unnecessary risk). Also, the gentle slope to the waterfront kept us from completely leveling our 43 footer. But we got it pretty close using our override manual controls.
Can't forget to mention Katie the Cat. She's the boss and will eventually come around to see if she approves. We'd love to return on our next journey in the area.

It was a treat to spend the night at this lovely location. I hope to get back one day soon! ♡
Our visit here exemplifies what Boondockers Welcome is all about. We talked and shared stories for a couple hours over a glass of wine.
Kerry asked for our help by driving her son to work, it was our pleasure. This is what we have come to love about BDW. The sharing of stories and supporting one another. And not to mention the beautiful sunsets. Stay here for a wonderful stay.
Overnight spot enjoyed the view. Easy parking for my class b. Thanks
It’s pity we didn’t have a long chat, but we felt very welcome, and we had a good night.
We also were very pleased with the amenities.

Beautiful waterfront location. Sandie and I had a very enjoyable visit with Kerry on her patio. Kpridham is a very generous and thoughtful host. Great place to stay.

We had a fantastic stay at Semple Close. We were met upon arrival and felt instantly at home, our host happily provided advice and ammenities. The location is to die for, and we would love to return again in the future.
What a view from our back window over looking the bay. Our hostess was there to welcome us with maps and information about the area. The parking area requires some backing ability for bigger rigs, but very doable. Little kitty likes to check everyone out. Thank you again for sharing your home and beatiful view with us.
This is a great place to boondock, right on the water. It's a beautiful setting with an awesome view. Our host greeted us warmly when we arrived and provided us with information about the area. We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to return when in the area.
Betty & I had no difficulty finding our host's beautiful location -right at the water's edge. We had a very pleasant overnight stay, and look forward to meeting our host in future travels.
My husband and I realy enjoyed staying at Semple Close by the water. Kerry is a very kind and caring person. This place was much better than many camping we went.
We definitely recommend this place.
Thanks again to our host and to the pleasure of meeting you again one day.
Just couldn't do enough for us. Was such a great hostess.
Even offered use of her washer and dryer and a shower if we needed it!
We had such an enjoyable evening having a fire and watching the fire works.
A much needed break!
The water front view is very nice and the water surprisingly warm.
Just down from her place we were able to buy lobster right off the dock.
We were fortunate to be there on the last day of the season. Only problem, no butter.
No worries, she supplied us with the butter.
Couldn't get any better.
We have left with such fond memories of our stay.
Thank you so much.
Kerry was a wonderful host. She is personable and knowledgeable about the area. This location is right in the middle of a bunch of things to do and see. I hope we are back this way at some point so we can stay again!
we thank you for your welcome, your kindness and your wish to share your beautiful space.
