Enjoying the slow life on the island with kayaking, fishing, golfing and trying new things..
Health is something of concern as I do have a brain tumor which opens my eyes to enjoy life to the fullest..
my wife mindy does a fair amount of sewing on the island from alterations on wedding dresses to sewing for her program called PEI angel dresses as well as making curtains for our bus...my passion is our bus conversion.

When you see their big yellow bus ( it’s not a school bus) arrive, you cannot help but smile. This fun couple enjoy life, and everything about it, and are experts at sharing their bountiful joy.
We hosted these guests at Candy Cane Corral and thoroughly enjoyed their visit.. They were very respectful and helpful. We were preparing for an after Christmas neighborhood party and they pitched right in and helped with whatever was needed. Our neighbors enjoyed meeting them also and getting acquainted. Their two little Yorkies are darling and very well behaved. We look forward to their return visit next year. We wish them Godspeed and safe travels as they continue their exploring.

What a great couple. They stopped in on a very cold November night with their beautiful MCI bus conversion. We had a space indoors for them, and almost had to force them to not stay out in the cold. A loving couple with a spectacular outlook on life. If you get a stay request from them do yourself a favor and accept it, you will be happy you did.
These two hosts are so friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable next to their home. They greeted us upon arrival and helped us maneuver our 28 foot travel trailer. They gave us power plugin while we were there on their beautiful property. They were so great with our kids and we enjoyed the chatting too. The sunset over the water is spectacular. Many thanks to them and they sure are welcome on Vancouver island if they ever venture out our way!
We drove down the road and saw Mindy waving in welcome. She and Doug expertly got us settled and squared away for the night. We got to share Hurricane Dorian together ... 😳. The cat 2 storm rocked PEI, but Doug & Mindy kept us safe. Even without power for most of the island, we had a blast. Neighbors banded together and put Dorian to shame. These people are amazing. I’m in awe of the things Doug & Mindy can do; they are both wise and talented. We might even follow y’all to Quartzsite in January. Lord knows that we need experts to guide us. Thank you for your open arms to welcome and embrace us.
D and M are super boondockers and reciprocate great hosting as they know it makes for great travelling. A really nice country setting in one of the prettiest parts of the nation. They arranged for an in-season lobster feast that they cooked. Lucky us who get that welcome to their home.
Thanks to you both. Hope we are able to provide some west coast hospitality in the near future.
The setting near the ocean was idyllic, but was outdone by our hosts' generous hospitality. They were easy to visit with, and helpful in different ways, direction for things to see, advice for our car trouble, had is in to share a lovely meal. It was hard to part company when it came time to go.
From the moment we arrived we felt we were a part of the neighborhood. Really good people who gave us a generous taste of PEI hospitality.
Steered us towards some good food and shared their campfire and musical talent.
Hope to meet up with them again!
Doug and Mindy are great hosts and made me feel very welcome. They have a great level spot across the private road from their house, bordered by a hayfield. Great views, easy access and welcoming hosts...a great combination. Thanks to them both for allowing me to stay and making me feel at home.
This was our first time boondocking, had many guest at our place in the 1000 Islands over past 25 year, however never tried it ourselves. Doug and Mindy erased al fears from the system fo!! Mindy went over things to see and do in area, we did the first half of point to point will finish next week at her suggestion. Campfire last evening topped off visit with extra concern for us next day in preparation for leaving, all good.
Betty and i although had friends and passer through stay at ou home over past 25 years had never used the boondockers ourselves , what a pleasant experiance, we are sold, Doug and Mindy will only build your business, cant say enough good, hope we can show them around the 1000 Islands someday.
As first time ‘guests’/users of Boondockers Welcome we were welcomed with open arms by Mindy and Doug. They made us not only feel like family but they did everything within their power to make our stay awesome, from evening bonfires to taking us to buy lobsters from a buy boat and then having a lobster dinner at their house. Their bus conversion is just about the coolest thing ever. The ‘stick with what you know’ discussion was funny and NO, there will be no fire department ladder truck conversion for us! 🤣 We WILL be seeing Mindy and Doug again; they are great hosts and wonderful people.😘
We had a wonderful stay with Mindy and Doug. Doug helped us get set up with a great view of the fields and water. They were so warm and friendly. Mindy introduced us to the tea house in town as well as taking us to Lennox Island. We got fresh lobsters right off the boat and she taught us how to eat whole lobsters which was brand new to us and tasted amazing..Sitting by the fire and sharing stories as well as being invited in made us feel very welcome. If you are in Tyne Valley we recommend you staying with them.I 🙂
We had the most memorable experience with Doug and Mindy! They are so friendly and down to earth, and took a lot of time to show us how to have the best experience on this part of the island. The views and sunsets are lovely... please don’t hesitate to spend time with them!
We enjoyed our walk along the shore in front of Doug and Mindy’s beautiful water front property. They were very friendly and accommodating. We were given a interesting tour of their bus conversion project. They’ve gone all out getting this bus ready for it’s maiden tour.
Great place to stay highly recommended.

They were as nice as could be- so welcoming and kind. And generous! Great location and the sunset on the river was spectacular. We had a wonderful overnight stay.
