Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My wife Susie and I (Matthew) travel in our RV in the winter months and throughout the summer. We have both left our professional careers at 50 and enjoy a simplistic way of living. It allows us to travel, enjoy wonderful new experiences and gain the friendships of great people along the way.

I am pretty handy at building things, and Susie has a keen eye for style and design so together, we bring a great balance to our efforts.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Matthew is handy at fixing most things from carpentry to mechanical
Susie has a great eye for design style, and loves to cook.
We both have excellent computer skills and have been told that we are excellent at research when it comes to travel whether in the RV or otherwise (we find things)

Southwind _WineSprinters's Pets

Beautiful Lab beagle mix named Sage who is an amazing travel companion

Favorite Boondocking Locations

New to us, we are excited to explore, learn from and share our experiences with others . The maiden voyage in our RV was 5000 miles from Phoenix, AZ to Windsor, N.S. It was too fast, but enough for us to know that there are a lot of places we want to experience.

Enjoyed hosting this wonderful couple and their pup! Shared dinner, wine and travel stories for the second time. Looking forward to visiting them this summer. They are welcome back anytime.


April 2018

Our First Guests !

This was our first experience using Boondockers Welcome. Matthew, Susie and Sage were delayed and could not stay over (sadly, their rig needed some repairs) but they came over for dinner and a few hours of getting to know each other. What a lovely couple and Sage was a delight. We were even able to celebrate mutual birthdays together. They are welcome back anytime!

Great Fun

It was a joy to have Susan and Mathew here. Their dog is quite mellow and managed to make friends with our barn cat. Good folks to host, they are welcome back anytime.


March 2018

Fun couple and great guest

We really enjoyed Susie and Matt visiting us. They are so friendly fit in well with the other boondockers and our friends. We had a meal, camp fire and some great guitar playing and singing. They had their own boat and enjoyed the river. Their dog Sage was a wonderful guest also. We are really hoping we can get together again with them either here or in their home in Nova Scotia. Safe travels Susie and Matt until we meet again.

Even better the second time!

Thanks for extending our stay a night.


September 2021

Wonderful people & property

Hosts were excellent with communication and giving us detailed directions. They were there to meet us and help back down the driveway. This could be a difficult task without a back up camera, but I hardly had to use mine with the great signaling from our host.

We had a blast hanging out on the deck and visiting and enjoyed the company of their sweet dog. Beautiful view of St. Mary's Bay. We can't wait to come back next summer!


August 2021

Delightful Hosts

M & S were helpful and kind. Their place is a bit hard to find, but S. gave us detailed instructions, and we did just fine. As new Boondockers in this area, they gave us a lot of helpful information. Turned out we had a lot In common. Super nice folks!


September 2019

Great stay!

We really enjoyed our time here! Beautiful place. Peaceful. Enjoyed spending time with Hosts. Thank you so much for sharing your paradise with us. Hope we meet again.


August 2019

Great tucked away place !

The hosts were very welcoming and generous !! Felt like we were old friends from the beginning.
The place was tucked away close to a bay overlook.
It was so great we were able to stay another night.


August 2019

Dans la forêt

Bel endroit pour petit véhicule, très tranquille.Merci.


July 2019


The WineSprinters are an interesting couple that have managed to live totall of the grid w a beautiful view. I truly admire them, but I am happy that I will never hike up their driveway again. Lol! Thank you both!


July 2019

Great Loccation

Nice couple. We didnt get to spend a lot of time with them but the time we did was wonderful. They are close to Digby and the ferry to the other islands. It was very quiet and peaceful. We hope to meet up with them again one day.


June 2019

Great people Great stopover

The directions to this location were fantastic...Big hill, colored house, turn. The road in was rock and gravel so we were happy to have unhooked the tow, which sits a little too low to clear some of the rocks as a pull-behind. Easy to avoid from the drivers seat.
The hosts were wonderful with a great sense of humor, knowledge about local (and not so local) points of interest and a beautiful piece of property. It was quiet and dark and easy to relax. We will request this location again.


June 2019

Beautiful people beautiful home

Fin time for us. Beautiful view from the deck of their home. An interesting and engaging couple. We played music and sang for several hours. Couldn’t find more hospitable or gracious hosts. Hope they come visit us sometime on their travel south.


May 2019

Great people

Great time, super private very enjoyable. Wish we could have stayed longer.


May 2019

Amazing place and lovely hosts

If you hesitate to come, don't ! : ask to stay at land and sea !
It was one of our first boondocking experience and we had such a wonderful time. Our hosts were very helpful and so welcoming. We spent lovely moments sharing stories, wine and lobster.

Susie and Matthew are this kind of encounter we will never forget for life. They are what Boondockers is made for !

The lovely host will make you almost forget about how amazing the place is... ! Lovely wild experience and what a view...


May 2019

Soooooo pretty

Beautiful setting. Quiet peaceful central location and gracious hosts. If you have the opportunity to visit take the chance and go!

Awesome people - Awesome site!

How can one rate something when superlatives are insufficient?

Wonderfully peaceful and beautiful location with the best hosts one could possibly imagine!


September 2018

Wonderful Hosts

They invited us to join their friends and we all had spirited discussions. Matthew broke out his guitar and we had a singalong. Thanks for everything!


August 2018

Paradise on the hilside.

About as far as you can get off the beaten path on Digby Neck it this wonderful off grid home on the hilside overlooking the sound. We enjoyed wine and cheese on their deck along with wonderful conversation lasting into the evening. Our hosts were gracious and after a few minutes we felt right at home.

You will need to enjoy a twisting gravel road with a steep decent to their home (or a less steep path to their secluded upper parking spot). Smaller rigs will feel more comfortable but they have their own 30+ footer parked on the lower level so you can do I with that sized rig.

The view from the deck is spectacular and the hosts became our fast friends.

Thank you for the fantastic visit, we hope to meet up again.


August 2018

Lovely place, Lovely People

The Winesprinters were great hosts that shared their beautiful place with us and generously shared lots of information about their fascinating set up there. We completely enjoyed ourselves and the meal we were able to share with them, not to mention fish fresh caught from the beach. Thanks so much!


August 2018


This was our first Boondockerswelcome experience and we could not have asked for a better one. Susie and Matt were wonderful hosts and, along with their great dog Sage, made us very welcome. Sitting on their deck looking at the magnificent view and sharing stories back and forth made for a delightful time. In the morning, led by Sage, we all strolled down the path to the beach and following that we sat around drinking coffee and learning more about their enviable off-the-grid lifestyle. We would recommend them to any Boondockerwelcome member who finds themselves in the Digby, Nova Scotia area. We look forward to the day when we can meet up with them again and share more stories.


August 2018

Terrific Hosts

We really enjoyed our stay here. A very nice evening spent together. Could have talked all night I think.
Like most BoonDocker hosts we've meet, they really enjoy being hosts. Thank you again so much, maybe next time we'll get to see your amazing view!


August 2018


Matt and Susie were excellent hosts. Became friends instantly!
They introduced us to their friends and family.
Very remote location! Absolutely beautiful,
Had a great time!
We’re treated royally!

July 2018

A piece of paradise

We had a terrific stay with Matt and Susie. The view from their home was beautiful. We had a nice quiet spot to park. We enjoyed visiting with them and enjoying their beach. They were a wealth of information. We consider them our newest of friends and would stay there again in a heartbeat. And of course, we can't leave out Sage - a super sweet dog!


January 2018

Very nice people and a great spot

They hosted us in September and they were top notch. Incredibly friendly people, they were great with our girls and showing us around. We had a couple of opportunities to swap stories and strategies on camping and even for their tiny house. The location was really cool too. Can't say enough good things about these two.


August 2017

Secluded quiet location

Beautiful place to boondock with very informative and kind hosts. We were assisted for parking our rig upon arrival and invited to their home on a couple of occasions. Very lovely couple. We highly recommend this spot.


August 2017

If you get a chance, make sure you meet Susie and Matthew!

Meeting this couple will stand out for us as a highlight of our time in Nova Scotia. We managed to put our 35 foot coach in the space provided and proceeded to enjoy the "neck" of Nova Scotia and scoot down to Yarmouth in our tow car. Sometimes it's so nice to not have to move the big coach. Their off the grid life is intriguing and you can't beat their view of the bay. Can't thank them enough for being our hosts.


August 2017

thank you

Thank you for taking us in at a short notice. Gabi and I enjoyed our time with you and we hope to see you again. We are at Peggi's Cove and enjoying the area very much. Take care
Gabi and Joe


August 2017

Safe and Secluded

We felt most welcome with Southwind_WineSprinter's friendly hospitality. The private off-grid site in a coastal Nova Scotian treed area is still cleared enough to let the sun and breeze in. Thanks for the relaxing stay.


July 2017

Awesome host!

My wife and I very much enjoyed our brief stay with them on our way to Newfoundland. They have an awesome site and are enjoying life off the grid. We wished that we could have stayed longer. We enjoyed their location and the walk down to the beach. We hope to see them again in the near future!


May 2017

Wonderful stay

Had a great 2 night stay while we explored the area; couldn't have asked for better hosts! Hope to return the favour in the future, thanks again!!


May 2017

perfect place to forget the rest of the world

when you search for peaceful and lovely people htis will be your place to be <3 from where you stay you have a beautiful view on the atlantic. you walk a few meters down to their "own" beach. we had so interesting themes we spoke about. their dog is soooo friendly and cute. all in all this were 3 perfect days for us. our highlight was a small party at their neighbours were had had a few drinks with other incredible friendly peoples and guitar sounds from matthew.


October 2016

Thanks WineSprinters!

Our hosts in Windsor were so fun. Gave us a great recommendation for pizza and haircuts! I got a massage and took a Yoga class a few blocks away at the Windsor Mall, and took a nice walk on the waterfront too. Thanks!

Lovely stay in Windsor

Our hosts provided a wonderful site to stay and explore the Winsor area. Can't say enough about their hospitality, including the delicious homemade wine they shared. Their dog, Sage, can sure steal your heart! Hope to see them again sometime.


September 2016

Great location, Great hospitality

They responded within the hour to my request for a place to park. The location is great--just a block off the main street and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. They are a lovely couple and their dog Sage did steal my heart. I would love to visit them again sometime, I feel we became friends in a very short time.


August 2016

Real Down-East Hospitality

With only a few hours notice and although they were away themselves, our hosts offered to let us stay. Their home is conveniently near the main street. We enjoyed a pleasant walk exploring the lovely town and a quiet sleep. Our only regret is that we didn't get to meet our hosts.


August 2016

Very kind hosts

What à nice stop we had at WineSprinter's place! Very kind people, receptive, interesting and warmful. We felt very welcome at their place as if we were old friends. We strongly recommand a stop at WineSprinter's if you go to that beautiful région of Nova Scotia. Thank you WineSprinter!
