First the age group was hard to choose because it does not reflect us. I am in my early '50's and my husband is in his late '70's. We live in rural New Brunswick, Canada on the border of NB and Maine.
A couple of years ago we picked up a 1973 21 foot Golden Falcon for $600 and spent two weeks travelling Nova Scotia, Cape Breton and Newfoundland. We are hooked!
We came home and my husband spent the month painting up our “Hippie Hangout .” The plan was to travel across Canada in 2018. Health complications slowed us down so we have not yet left on our BIG trip across Canada. We did two weeks in Newfoundland and the Maritimes in 2017 and no travel due to illness in 2018 then a few short trips and a two week trip once again through the Maritimes in 2019 and this time we LOVED using this site - gone for two weeks and only used a campground 3 nights! Once due to needing to dump our black water and the second time due to staying put during a storm.
We loved the hospitality and help of the hosts and although we had hosted before, this was our first time using the service - it definitely changed our perspective and now I think we will be even better hosts!
We are in lake country but not on the lake. Access is a short walk or 3 minute drive. Lots of wildlife and we have 50 acres so if you like peace, quiet, access to walking, hikes, several lakes, etc.
Recently, fall of 2019 - they fixed our road - it is now chip sealed and the driveway is a bit narrower - most rigs can likely pull in and back up, but some will need to back in - so please talk to us so we can tell you if this is the best place for you to stay or not. We understand this much better now, having traveled more and stayed at more sites.
Trip ‘n Daisy ✌️🌼
My husband is an artist and author.I used to be a baker/somewhat of a self taught chef for local events and markets, but now I also craft and create and have given up cooking much. We both create crafts and artisanal projects that we sell on Etsy, etc. We have a little gift shop in our home to display some of our work.
Yes - we have a small indoor Shih Tzu male puppy - he will never be out on his own and you may very well never meet him - we do not mind pets but recommend you keep your pet leashed as this is a big area, rural and lots of wildlife and some big trucks do go by on the road. So safety first!
We were able to do some boondocking in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in the fall of 2019
We are in the country 5 minutes from Maine border, 1 hour to Woodstock and 1.5 hours to Fredericton PLEASE NOTE: We are not near ANYTHING so be sure to fuel up food, supplies, etc before you arrive as the closest town is Danforth, Maine about 25 minutes away - restaurant, gas station and store OR Canterbury, NB about 30 minutes away, store/gas station OR Woodstock, NB about 1 hour away - full service town OR Fredericton, NB about 1.5 hours away - city with all amenities.
We are traveling as a couple in a 2011 Dodge Ram Crew Cab pulling a 1973 Vintage Golden Falcon - it is painted up in a fun bohemian hippie fashion - there are no offensive or tasteless paintings on it - it is not everyone's style but we love it. We do not require electrical but it is appreciated - we can go off grid but due to my husbands health issues if the weather is cold we like to be able to plug in our space heater. We are completely self contained and quiet. I, Daisy, am the only driver, I have towed us across NB, NS, PEI and NFLD - I am working on my backing up skills - I am pretty good after a week or two of practice, but the first few weeks can be a challenge. Pull throughs or easy back in is awesome, tight spaces are more difficult but I hope to improve my skill as we travel! Please be very straight forward with me on the location we will be parked in so I can determine if we can get in or not. So far so good, but we did have to decline one location - after getting there - due to a narrow driveway on a hill and unable to unhook the truck, which had been our primary reason to stay there - so we could explore. I would rather know it will not work out than to have to find some place else after driving there - hopefully that makes sense! Thanks. Trip 'n Daisy NOTE: as of November 2019 we have adopted a pure bred Shih Tzu who was 8 weeks old when we got him. We do NOT let him loose, ever! We DO keep him on a leash and for the most part he is in our rig, truck or on our laps and we do have a portable dog fence for when stationary. We do not see any issues with your pets, as we will keep him separate unless you say it is ok for them to socialize and we feel he is up to it. What is his name... well.. what would any hold hippie name there puppy - except Bobby McGee and he goes by McGee...
We invited TripnDaisy to stay an extra night. We were having such a good visit. Hope to see them back whenever they get on the road again. 🤗
Trip n Daisy are a very friendly couple.... they were self sufficient but needed power as they needed heat for the cold night. Their throw-back 1973 Vintage Golden Falcon with bohemian hippie paint may not suit a lot of boondockers taste but it was fine here. I'm sure a lot of work went into the painting of the trailer.
Have fun and be safe in your future travels. All the best.
Trip n Daisy are a very peaceful & helpful hosts, willing to accommodate
their guests in any way that they can. Daisy even gave me a road tour of the area.
Their location is very rural even though they are on a paved road.
Longer rigs, especially pickups w any type Long Trailer may find it difficult to turn around.
My Cl. A is only 25' long & it seemed to be the right size.
Their Unicorn camper is amazing & I am certain it gets a lot of compliments.
I very much enjoyed staying at "Golden Unicorn Farm" & I would enjoy returning.
Thank you Trip n Daisy.
We had a wonderful sleep at this beautiful location, although we woke up by the sound of a snowplough. The weather was cold but the welcome was warm. Thanks for letting us stay at your place
TripnDaisy is a super host. She gave use an excellent tour of the beautiful area. Afterward we got together for a glass of wine. A great time was had by all.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Golden Unicorn Farm. Unfortunately no unicorns were to be found. Lol. The farm is well off the beaten path but well worth the journey to get there. Folllowing Daisy’s excellent directions we had no problem finding the site. The wilderness location is very impressive. Although we did not see bears, moose or other wildlife I suspect they may have seen us. It was quite and a wonderful place to stay. We hope to return soon to meet TripnDaisy.
Although these hosts are located on a paved road, there is so little traffic, it’s like being secluded. There is a public swimming beach about 1/2 mile away on a peaceful, clear lake that wasn’t too cold.
Go for a hike down the hill behind the house and stop at the Apple tree. The hosts have seen moose and bear around but we didn’t see any in August.
Sarah makes good pepper jam and sells it at the family store. Try it, we are having it with breakfast.
We stayed 2 quiet nights and recommend it to others.
I stayed here with my daughter while on a road trip. Great folks, wonderful hospitality. Recommended!
One word of caution... our GPS told us we were there but we were about a quarter mile short. There is little of any cell service, so you can't look anything up. Fortunately some kind folks saw us go down that road and asked us if they could help (as I tried to turn around). They advised us to continue down the road and then we were there.
