Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Always looking for an outdoor adventure. Wheather it's on foot, bike, or canoe, it most always involves my camera. You can usually find Lori by my side minus the camera. Although she does enjoy using her cell phone camera. Always searching for the ultimate sunrise in new found places to photograph.

Very nice couple

We enjoyed their stay with us. They were quiet, tidy and respectful of our property. Johnniecanoe was kind enough to help with some heavy lifting we needed to get done. THANK YOU!! We had a great conversation with them; they are welcome back anytime.

Wecome back any time!

We didn't have much opportunity to chat with johnniecanoe, since we had previous plans -- they were very quiet and appreciative. Welcome back any time!

Great Experience!

Really enjoyed your company. Visited when invited but rest of the time didn't even know they were there. Enjoyed our chats. Welcome back anytime!

Too short a stay

They were with us a day and a night. We had a couple of nice visits, certainly would have enjoyed more! Their rig was right at home in our driveway, and I think the quietness of the village provided the atmosphere for a good night's rest. We'd be happy to see them again.

Wonderful visit

John and Lori spent their very first night in their new Pleasure Way van with us. We enjoyed their company and exchanging our travel stories. They are a lovely couple just beginning their Motorhome camping life. Their enthusiasm, humor, and outgoing personalities made us feel like old friends after just a few hours of visiting.

Fantastic hosts

We really enjoyed our stay and the friendly and accommodating hosts. They even lent us scooters to scoot down to Iggy’s for a NE seafood dinner. Very quiet and great setup for our stay. Can’t wait to come back.

John & Lori's Garden Escape

Johnniecanoe were warm and hospitable hosts. We so appreciated being able to park our camper in their driveway while we explored Newport all day. They have a stunning garden that they have taken great care of, so this is a serene environment for those looking to get some peaceful rest. It was great getting recommendations for what to do in the area as well. Highly recommend these hosts! :)

A great stay

What wonderful hosts! We only stayed one night but had a great time riding Amish bikes to the seaside and enjoying the yard.

Cool place in RI

John was super hospitable and showed me around the neighborhood and was super cool to talk to. The neighborhood is nice and quiet to get a good nights sleep. Thanks again!!

Nice stay AND a bike tour!

Had a great time with my hosts as they welcomed me to their spot and shared many stories with me! This is what traveling is all about and I am extremely grateful for them hosting me.

In addition, we went on a 25 mile bike tour around the area and I learned so much about the area. AND, I was able to tune up my bike as well! What a great spot and I look forward to following them and their own travel adventures via social media.

Thank you so much!

A perfect oasis!

Paved off street parking in a quiet neighborhood. Super friendly folks who like to get out and adventure. This home is truly an Oasis. I really look forward to the next trip through just to be able to visit again.

Fantastic host!!

We stayed at John and Lori’‘s place on the way to Cape Cod. They were a super friendly couple and very accommodating. Not only do they have a beautiful property but they even let us swim in their pool! It was much welcome to after a very hot day. Their property is gorgeous and where we parked was pretty level. I will definitely stay here again if I’m in the area!

Kindred Spirit

So comfortable. John and Lori seemed like us in many ways! They live in a lovely neighborhood and were very welcoming and helpful. They shared their beautiful garden behind the house. This was our first boondockers experience and while were a little tentative at first, it couldn’t have been more positive.

Wonderful stay!

John & Lori’s Place is a wonderful place to stay- incredibly welcoming hosts (I was greeted with flowers for my van!) and their garden is beautiful! close to the ocean and good food spots - great recommendations from the hosts! Thank you again !

Quiet stay near the water in a cozy neighborhood

Our stay at johnnoecanoe's was just right. It was an ideal start for our vacation. Our host wasn't around, but they generously let us park in their spot anyway. The backyard and gardens are tastefully deaigned. We'll have to come back and visit when they're around!

A Friend in Warwick

Met with John at his residence and he could not be more gracious. He offered us the use of his meticulous backyard as well as household current. He suggested local places to eat which we enjoyed with our Yellow Lab in a patio area. Highly recommended.
