Great Time

Marcel and Francine are very friendly people and a pleasure to host.

Marcel spent some time with us as his laptop was giving him grief so we got that fixed up for him so he could log in again and use it.

Short stay and they were up and on the road by 7 am.

Absolutely recommend these folks!

Very Nice Couple

Marcel and Francine stopped in for a night Oct. 7 or 8 2014. I wasn't home but my wife, Terry, was there to greet them. She says they are great people and really enjoyed talking with them. They were on the move so they only stayed one night. Wish I'd been there!

Wonderful first experience

We had a very warm, welcoming introduction to boondocking at Marcel's. Their beautiful well kept property was easy to locate and access. Marcel shared his valuable knowledge of RV Traveling and as new rv owners, we appreciate his insight. We highly recommend this location and this wonderful couple as hosts.

A pleasant quiet stay

We had a pleasant quiet night with marcel1696 in their serene rural setting.
Lots of good stories and advice about Newfoundland boondocking.
We would be glad to return.

Wonderful and peaceful

We had a wonderful stay with Marcel and his wife. They were very generous and hooked us up to water and electricity. Beautiful area and nice and quiet. We enjoyed our conversations and got lots of tips for our adventure to Newfoundland. Big thank you!

Friendly couple

We stayed one night with Marcel and Francine and very much enjoyed our chatting on their back porch. The site was level and we really appreciated being able to have hydro. Very beautiful property! Loved their dog Dakoka.
We also appreciated the recommendation of seeing the burned Church 2 kms from their home as well as the information about Hwy 30 which by-passed Montreal. (We were on our way to Shediac, NB).
We'd recommend this boondocking site to others.
Richard, Maddy (and our dog, Teddy).

very helpful

Marcel and his wife were not home when we arrived, as they had to make an emergency trip to the hospital in Ottawa. They left a note on the door indicating when they would return and where to park. We spent a little time talking to them in the evening and then quite an extensive conversation the next morning before leaving. They have a lovely friendly dog, Dakota, so we got our "doggie fix" also. Great hosts.

Nice folks

We connected by email and exchanged several letters. The property is beautiful and Marcel and Francine (and Dacota) were very friendly.
I would recommend marcel any time.
