I enjoyed hosting this couple and hearing stories of their travels. I hope they'll return for another stay.

Nice weather

We were happy to host. Didn't have a lot of time to visit but nice to see people enjoying a beautiful fall bike ride.

Quiet, Friendly, Respectful Guests!

These were our first Boondockers, and if all are as warm, friendly, and generous with sharing their wonderful dinner...then, bring them on!! Christa was hiking the Bruce Trail, and Mark was her "support crew". We would like to thank them for their kindness of leaving us a lovely appreciation gift - we plan to use it in OUR camper!

We would recommend these travelers to other Boondocker hosts, for sure.

Happy Trails!
Linda and Gord

Quiet and friendly

They cycled from London area to Hamilton on a very humid day and were still smiling even after a flat tire. They were lovely people to meet and chat with.

The safe haven of Haysville

This couple made our stay so enjoyable. They greeted us upon arrival and helped us get set up. We felt very comfortable here and would certainly recommend anyone to stay at this place. The barn cats were adorable.

Awesome weekend stay

We stayed at this fantastic BD location unfortunately, we didn’t meet Mark or his wife but met their son John and his family. Great location, great hosts, great weather (although a little on the cool side). Will arrange to stay next year again when possible
Thanks for the hospitality guys and continue your safe travels. All the best

Great R & R Place

Our host welcomed us.....helped us decide the best location.
You can have shade or sun...we elected shade between a grove of high topped trees and the cornfields.
A quiet country spot...lots of room to maneuver our 37 feet....close to small town with many amenities.
Thanks for the 3 nights....
