Retired fulltime rvers offering down-home hospitality

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Wife is a retired teacher and husband is retired from National Defence. Bought 5 acres of maple grove, natural evergreen forest and open sloping field with a small stream 10 minutes from Kouchibouguac National Park gates. Became full-time rv dwellers this year. Got rid of the stick & brick, donated anything that wouldn't fit in the rv and are loving the freedom. Looking forward to welcoming fellow RVers.

We boondock on our own land, so you must be self-contained (water, power, sewer). Sorry. There are free facilities nearby for water and sewer dump.

We can offer parking for any size rv with plenty of shade or out in the open, whichever you prefer.

Plenty of room for kids and pets to run and play. Please maintain control over your pets as we have 2 older cats and 2 friendly dogs who live there freely and off leash. If yours is/are friendly, trained and well-behaved, you are welcome to do the same.

We plan to be there from April to October and travel about for the winter months (no fixed address).

Area offers miles of beaches, fishing, swimming, cycling, hiking, canoeing/kayaking (river and sea), shopping, touring, etc. 30 minutes south of Miramichi City and 20 minutes north of town of Richibucto.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Some bush craft, well-versed in local sites and people, including honest tradespeople, great restaurants, and various activities.
Bilingual (English & French)

Very helpful for our first BD experience.

Wow

Nice and quiet like my first stay here a few months ago. Still haven’t met the host but good talk on the phone. Likely will find myself back here again.
Had to leave early to get on my way to Toronto to visit my 96yo mom.

Very Helpful

Our hosts were gracious enough to allow us to stay at their property even though they were not there. Offered helpful advice about the area. Property was easy to find.

Great experience!

Though the hosts weren't there for our visit, they opened their site for our use and even had a neighbor provide a warm welcome. The site was so relaxing - just what we needed.
Thank you for a great experience!

Quiet, peaceful.

I stayed here with hosts phone permission but he could not be there. I stayed 4 of the 5 scheduled days, needed to get some maintenance done.
The neighbours across the way were very nice, came to visit and offered water.
Very quiet full of the moon. Calming experience.

Peaceful, quiet stay

Even though our hosts needed to be away much of the time we were there, we enjoyed a peaceful, quiet stay, and appreciated the opportunity to hear about their favourite boondocker spots when we finally met. It was a nice visit.

A little piece of natural beauty

Hosts were quite responsive and helpful- even pointing us in the direction of a local mechanic for our AC!
Property is Park Like with beautiful trees, grassy areas and benches for resting. Close to the national park.

Fantastic stay

Thanks for having us!
We had a wonderful stay in the maple trees on the property, spent the days at the Kouchibouguac NP down the road and the nights having great chats.
The recommendations for drives and attractions were super helpful.

Great introduction to boondocking

This was our first boondocking experience and we felt like we hit the jackpot. They were about as nice as can be, helping us get set up, pointing us in the right direction and letting us know where we could pick wild blueberries. We had a great first experience boondocking and we wrote more about it and added some pictures of the area on our site:

Perfect spot

We found this property to be the perfect spot for a well needed rest on our journey. We were warmly welcomed by these wonderful hosts and even shown where the wild blueberries grow.

What a great stay!

Lovely place in the country but close to amazing park and lovely sea towns. Quiet and peaceful. Amazing hosts who shared lots of info on travelling as well as info on attractions in the area. Recommended as hosts or visitors.

Great first--time boondocking

'Johnna123' set the bar pretty high for our 1st boondocking experience. They were extremely accommodating and flexible with our schedule, and their friendly neighbours even brought us some home baking! Couldn't have been better.
