My wife and I are sort of retired. I used to work in the IT field and still like to tinker with technology. My wife is an experienced classical musician and although she is retired she still finds time to accompany choirs and play the organ as well as other instruments.

Very welcoming peeps

We stayed two nights at Chryselwoods place and loved to come "home". Very welcoming dogs and people, open to share dinner and have great chats about everything. Nice sunset and views of cruise ships if you are lucky. Thanks for your outstanding hospitality and come by every time.

Chryselwood was a very convenient location while in Annapolis Royal. Within walking distance to everything in town. We enjoyed meeting our hosts and their dogs. Another great Boondockers Welcome stay!

musician friends

We had a lovely stay with our hosts who are also musicians. We jammed to our hearts content! We fell in love with the town, attended the market the next morning and said goodbye. We hope to hook up again in Ft Meyers

Very Welcoming

We had a great stay with these generous folks in their lovely town. Canada Day was spent in the 'cradle of the nation'. Everything within walking distance. Could not have asked for a better location or more welcoming and intersting hosts. Thank you.

Charming engaging hosts

Wonderful stay. We stayed one night and were met by this very kind and friendly couple. They were able to suggest two great restaurants and encouraged us to visit the market Saturday morning which we did and it was lovely. They are located right in the heart of the town, within walking distance to most things. Knowledgeable about the area and RVing. Would have enjoyed a longer visit and more chats about their travels and experiences but we had to move on.

Super welcome

Despite asking on the same morning, Chris squeezed me in. There were already 2 other RVs there! Great hosts and joined me later in town, where I got invited to play my squeeze box with a local celtic music session.
Lovely people!

Delightful Hosts and Setting

Hosts were very friendly and helpful, made us feel at home. Lots of nearby attractions for history and nature buffs. We hope to return.

Yeah Chriselwood!

What fantastic hosts! They moved their RV so as to make space for two Boondockers. Couldn't ask for more welcoming hosts. Annapolis Royal is a great community too. We particularly enjoyed the Candlelight Graveyard History Tour that our hosts recommended. Thanks to our great hosts for helping make our visit so special!
