The consummate hosts!

This is our second stay with Mike and Marie. I can't say enough good things about this couple! Friendly, generous, caring, helpful and fun are just a few!!!!!! They make you feel like family but also give you space and privacy too. Love these guys!

Great hosts, great location. We had some breakdown issues and they went above and beyond to assist and comfort us! Wonderful.

Can’t thank you enough Morningside Spirit!

Like coming home

M & M will always be our friends. We were so glad to be able to pass through again, and to sit down and have some good chats and good times with them. We couldn’t believe that 12 days had come and gone so quickly, and here we are leaving again. We couldn’t have asked for better hosts when crossing the boarder. They are so knowledgeable, friendly and giving. We look forward to coming back during the maple harvest in the future. If you’re headed this way, make sure you don’t miss out on getting to know this couple and their kitties.

Lovely Couple on Beautiful Property

This was a great stay! Our hosts were super great at prompt communication and directions and the spot was easy to back into and level with easy access to hookups. They live on a beautiful piece of property with an abundance of wildflowers and herbs as well as wild blackberries, blueberries and even apples! Their little forest provided a wonderful hike and we even got a lesson in maple tapping. The Ganong Chocolate museum (with tastings) is work the drive into town. Thanks so much for an awesome visit!

Another Great Stay

What can we say about M & M to do this justice. Some of the nicest, most genuine people you'll meet on the road. Pretty much what you would expect from anyone you stay with in Canada. They welcomed us into their home and their lives, and gave us tips and advice that we were really grateful for. If you're looking to stop just before or after the border, this is the place to do it. Plus there are full hook-ups, which doesn't come along everyday. We can't wait to come back, and pick some more fresh wild blueberries.

Awesome stay with friendly and interesting couple

We had a wonderful wonderful stay with Mike and Marie. Location is great with Full Hookups! We had wonderful conversations and the kids enjoyed the yard and learning about different plants and Mike showed them how he makes maple from the trees. Very close to St Andrews and easy to get there and out. Was our first boondockers welcome experience and it was surly great. We hope we could see Mike and Marie again one day.

A great place to boondock

This was a great place to boondock with all the amenities one could ask for. Our hosts greeted us warmly when we arrived and invited us in for a cup of tea. We really enjoyed our visit and would love to stay here again in the future.

Had fun at little house on the ridge..

We really enjoyed boondocking at Little House on the Ridge. M & M are a fun couple. And we were in awe of the many interesting projects they have going on. They generously provide all RV amenities and are close to St. Stephen and the US border. We also enjoyed a round at the St. Stephen's golf club. If you"re looking to golf in NB, ask about the 2 for 1 card.

Hospitality Plus

Mike and Marie were very helpful, we were provided with wifi, electricity etc., we were there for a short time, but learned a lot about herbs from Marie, we are now both on nettle tea. The time spent with you guys was too short, hope you do come and visit soon. Its only a day drive!

Great Host

We enjoyed our stay here, and they were very gracious hosts! Had a tour of their herb garden and they gave us some mint for tea which we thoroughly enjoyed. As an added bonus, they have full hook-ups, and if you want peace and quiet this is the place to go!

We know Mike & Marie and they introduced us to Boondockers and other travelling options. They are an energetic friendly couple and we hope to enjoy their hosting for a night or two before we do the Cross Canada trip in 2019! We are excited to join the group and host others based on their recommendations! Thanks Mike & Marie! Happy trails! Trip 'n Daisy
