Fantastic Couple

Ken n Sue were a very friendly easy going couple. We had very good conversations and the comment of "it a small world" this was a prime example as Sue came from the same small town where I was born. AMAZING!. I would / and will welcome them back in a heart beat with open arms. Okay and a hug.

Wonderful stay

Contacted McLarty farm at the last minute while traveling between the Niagara and Windsor regions. Quick response and great welcome.

Very nice farm (extremely easy to find) and perfect accomodations for our 38 foot RV, on grass, with 30 amps electricity, WOW !!!

Now about the people: Although we stopped by late september and that it was harvest time, our hosts took the time to enjoy some wine with us and give us full information about farming (very very interesting, and a lot of work) and recommendation for restaurants. .

We stayed there a few days and enjoyed everyone of them.

We highly recommend to stay or host if requested.

Lush Green Paradise

Wow! My dog and I pulled into the farm and couldn't believe the huge sea of green grass, trees, crops, and beautifully-maintained farm buildings.

She was right there to greet us and direct us to our parking area by the barn. We hooked up [what a treat!!], and with the chirping of barn swallows in the background, got to know her a little. She is one interesting and busy woman, but she carved out some time for us before she had to leave. We learned the history of the family farm and also learned about barn quilts...who knew??!! Ask her about the beautiful one she created.

A bit later he joined us...boy, there is a lot to know about farming...and a heck of a lot of work!! He also explained the gigantic solar set-up on their property. Then off he went to look after some chores.

We had such a peaceful sleep...watched over by a mama raccoon and her baby peering out at us from the barn. We can't wait to stay with them again...terrific, easy-going hosts!!

Second Visit

We had a lovely second visit at Mclarty farms. It is just off the 401 highway through Ontario not far from the border with Michigan. The nights are quiet and the parking easy to get into. Thank you so much for having us again.

Very enjoyable hosts.

Ken and Sue made us feel most welcome. They gave us a booklet of attractions and a map of the area for us to visit. We look forward to staying with them again.

Thank you so much.

We had a one night stop at this location. Ken and Sue are wonderful hosts and their farm is a perfect place to stop in South Western Ontario while passing through on the 401. Thank you so much.

great visit

Very pleasant people. We enjoyed the museums, nature centers and walking trails in the area while we parked at their farm.

Thanks Again

We stayed at Mclarty farm again this winter on our way home. It was nice to see Ken & Sue again - they make us feel so welcome. Their location is very convenient to the highway and from there to our home is an easy drive.
Thanks for putting out the welcome mat and arranging for a snowstorm to remind us it was still winter in Ontario!


June 2013

Plan to stay a couple of nights relaxing at the McLarty farm.

Thanks, Sue & Ken for the warm hospitality. Thanks, also, for going out of your way to get brochures of local attractions. If we're ever up this way again we'll be sure and plan on some conversation and coffee in that wonderful gazebo.

Another Positive Boondocking Experience

We had a delightful stay with Ken & Sue. The facilities were perfect for us. The property is large so there was no difficulty getting turned around with our M.H. and tow car. They are located close to Hwy. 401 so it was very convenient. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and even arranged for their daughter to come and greet us as they would not be home when we were arriving. We hope they will allow us to stay with them in the future.
