Very nice guesr boondocker

Highly recommend Twinholm and his sidekick Barney, who was a very well behaved canine. Twinholm is very friendly and we enjoyed sitting and chatting around a campfire. We welcome him back in the future.

Always glad to have Ross and Barney. If they ask, you will be glad you let them drop in. No muss no fuss. Just a nice guy with a really nice dog. Safe travels. Come back anytime.

Happy new year

Wonderful country in the city

We loved staying at this hosts location. It was a peaceful spot overlooking a field. We enjoyed all the time we got to spend chatting with our hosts around the campfire, and getting to see their rig and set up. We enjoyed fresh eggs and honey too! Fascinating history of the property, and we hope to visit again next time we are in the area.


September 2018

Great first Boondockerswelcome stay!

My stay was short, but could not have been nicer. It's a great location - a quiet and peaceful oasis close to Toronto - and Ross, Sylvia and Barney made me feel right at home. I hope to be able to get back for a longer stay soon!

Great guy

Super nice guy. Hooked me up with fresh eggs and tomatoes when I left. Sat up late one night and solved the worlds problems (well, some of them anyways.) Quiet and easy to get in and out. Hi to Sylvia!


August 2018


For our first experience as boondockers, it couldn't have been better. From the first moments, we felt as if we were at an old friend farm or in the family.
Lots of space and quiet, electricity and good wi-fi.
Thanks so much to our hosts for their kindness.
And more thanks for the lifts to the train station.
We hope we could see you again somewhere... for having dinner and many other stories to share.


August 2018

great stay

will be back


August 2018

Great host

first time boondocking and could not have gotten better reception. Great man to talk to and knowlogable about travelling. Gave us events to visit and do while in the area.
Hoping to be back next year.

Peaceful Night at the Farm - Excellent First Boondocking Experience!

My family of six stayed with Ross and Barney after a very stressful day of driving. The peaceful farm was a welcoming change from the hustle and bustle of being on the road. I can not begin to describe the welcomed feeling that we received during our short stay. My husband and I joined Ross on his beautiful wrap around porch for an evening of chatting before turning in for the night. My daughter was overjoyed at the opportunity to meet Dawn - the horse, share some loving with Barney - Ross' dog, and watch chickens play in the yard.

Our parking spot was perfect, as it was nice and flat with great electrical hookup that powered not only a CPAP machine but also air conditioning, which was beyond appreciated. We never even had to unhook, as the area is nice and roomy - even for our 34' camper and Suburban.

We hope to return on our next trip through the area - only with a little extra time to enjoy. We all left wishing that we had just a bit more time to chat and enjoy the quaint farm life and cozy porch!

Thanks again Ross!


July 2018

Wonderful Place and Host

We really enjoyed our stay at Ross's farm and enjoyed visiting and socializing around the campfire. Very welcoming, great location so close to the city, yet so quiet and relaxing on the farm.

Twinholm Ontario

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful farm! Great location close to the train into Toronto. Lots to explore in the area. Ross could not have been a more hospitable host. We were lucky to share a lovely evening around the campfire with Ross and another Boondocking couple.


June 2018

Great Location / Great Host!

Sitting on this beautiful, well manicured acreage, it's hard to believe you're so close to downtown Toronto.
We had a very nice evening visiting on the deck. Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay!


June 2018

Nice place

Thank you so much. We enjoyed the class of vine and chatting with you. I will also like tu thank you for the cute birthday present you gave me the next morning.


May 2018

Hospitality is Twinholm's middle name!

Really appreciated the opportunity to go for a hike on the farm, had a nice visit on the porch. Looking forward to visiting again another day.


October 2017

Excellent Host

Thank you so much for hosting us last weekend. We enjoyed meeting you both and we're grateful for a beautiful, quiet place to stay. Hopefully we an welcome you for a visit.


October 2017

Extremely nice people

Contacted Twinholm at last minute because we wanted to reach and visit the Niagara region. Quick reply and very good communication.

Easy to find location in a beautiful environment.

We had plenty of interesting chats with them while sitting in their backyard enjoying a glass (or few) of wine in front of a campfire.

Although we had planned to stay 2-3 nights and then move to the Niagara region itself, we finally stayed 7-8 days and traveled back and forth to Niagara. We then moved on to the Windsor region, but stopped for one more night on our way back home.

I believe we have made new friends and would be happy to visit them once more or host them if requested.

We highly recommend to stay at Twinholm.

Thank you so much once more ! ! !

Great Hosts

We stayed in at Twinholm Sept 2017. Great host with lots of recommendations for traveling to Toronto and Niagara Falls. Stayed 3 nights while visiting attractions. Large area, no problem turning around our 60ft truck and trailer.
Friendly host providing relaxing atmosphere and evening campfires.
Thanks for your hospitality.


September 2017

Great place to stay

Had a wonderful time staying 3 nights (Sept.9-11) at this location. Host was friendly and most generous supplying us with helpful information on the area. Enjoyed the campfire and conversations! We highly recommend staying at this safe and very peaceful place.


September 2017

Fabulous place to stay

We said at Twinholm for 2 nights, Sept 9-11 with 2 of our friends in their own rigs. Our host was great, he gave us so much information and made us feel completely welcome. After a long day trip to Niagara Falls it was so nice to feel like you were coming home. We were invited to campfires and enjoyed some good conversation over a glass of wine. Thank you so much, this was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and you made us feel safe and comfortable.


August 2017

A perfect gentleman

Had a wonderful time staying here!

Ross was even kind enough to share a beer while we chatted on the porch once the kids were in bed.


August 2017

Simply Wonderful!

We had a great stay with them... twice! Our two daughters were (and we were also) so amazed with their paradisiac setting that we came back a week later, on our return!

Thank you so much for your hospitality and sharing your little corner of paradise!


July 2017

What a beauty

Enjoyed meeting Twinholm on the very comfortable side porch. Our dogs were in heaven with so much room and Barney. Fun looking over the creative wich-a-ma-doodles that you all created. Will return for sure. Thanks to all of you. Gladys and Mary Ann


June 2017

Very, very, very great

We stay there 2 nights, the farm is near Toronto, calm and not noisy, at 10 minutes of a station. It's a perfect place to go if you want to visit Toronto. Twinholm is a very great person, and his wife too.
Thank you so much!
We recommande this nice boondocking!


March 2017

The perfect country haven

A lovely stay with the most accommodating people, we were welcomed in to hear of adventures past and met the handsome Barney the Brittany Spaniel who was very generous with cuddles.
The location is very well situated for those that want to venture into Toronto for the day with the Go train station a 10 min drive away.
Thank you for having us, and if we pass through your way again we will definitely stop by :) Nat and Alex.

Country Living Close to the City

When my travel plans quickly changed just before the Labor Day weekend, when most campgrounds are full, Twinholm came to the rescue with a spot I could set up camp. We hit is off and I enjoyed the farm environment. I would consider returning the next time I am in the area.


August 2016

Wish we had more time

We appreciated the welcome at Twinholm Farm, and the extra effort to make us feel welcome. While we did not stay overnight, our Rig enjoyed 4 nights at the Farm, while we spent time with friends in Toronto. The offer of drives to and from the GoTrain made this very convenient. We only wish we had more time to spend a night to really enjoy the fantastic wrap-around patio and wonderful welcome with our host. Highly recommended, and we hope to welcome you on the West Coast some time soon!


June 2016

Twinholm is "The bees knees" !

This was my first ever boondockers welcome experience. It was fantastic! I told our hosts that I should just stop using this site because anything after would likely be a disappointment.
I have a larger sized trailer, but was welcomed to park next to one of the large barn/outbuildings. There was a 30amp hookup which was just what i needed.
I very much enjoyed my time spent swapping stories and enjoying wine on the farmers porch with a view of the fireflies and a show of candle lights. My dog Briggs made friends with Barney the sentinel Spaniel.
Lovely people, and I only hope they enjoyed my company as much as i did theirs.

P.S. If you are coming from the States... bring Jimmy Dean sausage for Ross!!!

This idyllic 'Century Farm' is not more than 4 miles from our previous home in Oakville. For years we drove by this property and always admired its charm and appeal and the beautiful white horses grazing in the pastures. For our very 1st Boondockers Welcome experience we couldn't have chosen a more perfect spot! We came for 2 nights and returned 1 week later for another 2 nights!

The host, is gracious, generous and welcoming. We were invited to relax on the beautiful wrap around porch, share the fire pit(s), gaze at the full moon and generally, just make ourselves at home. The property is spacious and there was ample room for our 'big rig' to maneuver the drive and park.

The big bonus is 'location, location, location'. Just minutes from the highways (and public transit) to Niagara Falls to the west and Toronto to the east. Plenty of shopping and restaurants are also close by.

Thank-you Twinholm for a great experience. It was "BEEYOND" our expectations.


May 2016

Beautiful farm and welcoming hosts!

Twinholm was very welcoming and accommodating. He offered Woodstove Pizza the evening I came along with a glass of wine and hours of great conversation. We even had a campfire. His farm hosts horses and very beautiful and quiet. I was able to plug in. Highly recommend!


November 2014

wonderful people in a wonderful place!

we come from Italy and we enjoyed so much our time with Ross and Sylvia!
For us it was like living in a movie, huge place, lot of nature, a good chat around a bonfire and the best hospitality!
we wish we could see you again!

Loved the Corn

Ross & Sylvia were rally nice to us. They even gave us some fresh corn from their garden which we thoroughly enjoyed. WE appreciate the stay at their place for two nights. They advised us to take the GO Train to Toronto and that really was a wise decision because of the traffic and the road construction.
Thanks again and we hope to see you in Alabama at our place next spring.

What a great guy!

The missus and I stayed with Twinholm on his marvellously tranquil farm with very short notice and he was more than obliging, kind and patient with us newbies. Tons of space, firm footing under tires. He even waited up for us to return from dinner out and invited us to join him at his campfire where we talked about neat places we'd all been, what we thought of boondocking etc. over wine and beer.

There wasn't a sound all night and we slept like the dead. Thanks Twinholm. If this first experience is any indication of what the rest of the Boondocking community is like then we're thrilled to be new members!
