Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Patty & I (John) both grew up on small farms in the same area so haven’t moved very far. At present, we have no pets but really miss having them. We have been married 50 years and have raised 2 daughters who each have 3 children ranging in age from 15 to 21. One family lives nearby and the other in the State of Washington. John has finally retired and loves to tend to the yard during the summer and keep the snow cleared in the winter. We cut a huge amount of wood which supplements our heating in the winter. John is a Boilermaker welder & Steel Fabricator by trade and a fixer up kind of guy and loves to tackle many projects around the acreage. Patty volunteers at our local Food Bank as well as the local County Museum. We really enjoy travelling in our RV and have seen a good part of the USA, but mostly the northwest area. We rent half a duplex for 6 weeks in Palm Springs during February/March and have been going there for the past 14 years. We’re both non-smokers, healthy, active and really enjoy meeting people as we travel. Also enjoy sipping a glass of wine in the great outdoors as well.

Skills & Expertise to Share

John is a Welder/Steel Fabricator by trade and is quite handy and repairing most anything. Patty is a wonderful cook who does a lot of experimenting in the kitchen with a very good success rate!

Great guests

What a great experience having these two stay with us! We enjoyed them from the very start. Pre-stay communication was excellent. It seemed like we were friends from the moment they arrived. If you get a chance to host this couple, I would highly recommend them. They were so very friendly and gracious. We really do hope that they pass this way again and choose to stay with us.
We wish them safe travels and hope to see them again.

The host are wonderful people and excellent interlocutor. We enjoyed in the evening the comfort with a glass of wine and the discussions. We learned a lot about the lives in Canada. Thanks to your help and the conscientiousness, we are well-prepared for the trip to Alaska. We felt us on this beautiful and extremely well-kept estate very well and welcome. You to know is for us a special privilege.

Overwhelmingly helpful

Our 1st experience with Boondockers Welcome hosts was so amazing that we figured no other hosts would come close. We were wrong. Our second hosts were outstanding as well. They were welcoming, friendly, warm and helpful. We had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend a stay here.

Very enjoyable stay

I would like to thank Misletoe very much for hosting us. Our stay there was the very best. Definitely, we highly recommend others to stay at your place. If ever you travel to our area, be sure to look us up. It will be our pleasure to host you both. We very much enjoyed meeting you and your family, and walking around your property. You made us feel welcomed. Thanks for your help in setting up and for all the amenities you provided,
Our stay at your place was very enjoyable. If ever we are back in your area we will certainly ask to stay again at Misletoe.

Excellent communication

This Boondocker was incredible! Offered us a place to stay even when they were away. They communicated everything needed to stay clearly and swiftly and were so hospitable! We had a quiet stay in a level site in a beautiful location, secluded from city noise. Couldn't ask for more! Thanks again!

like a new home

we sent misletoe a message to see if they could host us at a certain date, and the quick answer was yes. a few days later it turned out, that they wouldn't be home then, but they let us stay anyway and their brother, who takes care of the house, will introduce us. we could have a shower, use the workshop for some repairs, and stay on their beautiful property.
it felt like being at home to us, and we really appreciate the hospitality of J. & P.
if you ever think of visiting edmonton, visit misletoe.
i certainly can recommend to host them if requested, as everything is clean and tidy at their place.

thanks and hope to meet you sometime.

Great people on a wonderful place

We had a wonderful day of recreation in their "park" as we called it. Loved to chat, got every support we needed and had been on our own also. Would come again if we could!

Another wonderful visit!

We had the opportunity to visit our new friends again on our return trip back across Canada. What a wonderful couple and a beautiful location. So welcoming - you will feel at home and won't want to leave! Thanks again for everything...looking forward to seeing you in the future!

Awesome welcome

Misletoe were busy the day and evening we arrived but made very sure, via numerous informative and encouraging texts, that we knew how to find their beautiful spot in the country.
We had a short but lovely visit and felt entirely welcome that evening and the next morning when we had to move on.
This was our very first boon docking experience through BoonDockers Welcome and it was very special. Both the setting and the hosts were wonderful. Thank you so much, and happy trails to you...

Best place to stay!

What a great time I had at this Boondockers address. Misletoe are great and so nice! It was very cozy and they let me feel at home. They help you with everything and you become very spoiled. The place is also nearby Elk Island Provincial Park and Edmonton so ideal. It was so fine that I've stayed 5 days!! I really recommend this Boondocking address.

Fantastic couple

We recently spent two nights with this wonderful couple. They welcomed us like family and went above and beyond to ensure we were ready for the next leg of our epic adventure. Not only that but they also have such a beautiful property - much nicer than any campground! We highly recommend our hosts, and feel like we have not only met a great couple, but also made new friends.
