Jan and I like to spend time outdoors exploring wherever we are. We are constantly on the go around home and travels here and there. I have a workshop and Jan loves to cook. Value friends and family. Respect nature and always cleaning up the roadside garbage wherever we are. Photography, hiking, canoeing, field naturalist trips are our activities. We do like RVing a lot.

Great Hosts

We stayed on their property Sept. 2017. Excellent hosts providing many recommendations for sight-seeing in Ottawa. Parking is in two driveways, backing in from the road is a bit of a challenge for our 60 ft truck and trailer, but do able. Thanks to John and Jan

Good place to stay

We had a good time staying 2 nights (Sept.12-13) at this location. Hosts were friendly and most generous supplying us with helpful information on the area and use of their gazebo! We highly recommend staying at this safe place.

Quiet place to stay

We enjoyed a 2 night stay at John and Jan's with 2 friends in their own rigs. Space was tight for the 3 of us but John was very helpful getting us in. We were very happy with the hospitality and enjoyed an evening of getting to know them. The use of the screened in gazebo was a nice meeting place for our group. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Big thanks

We were very impressed with the Boondocking at John and Jan's place. It was quiet and enjoyable for the time we spent there. We had car problems and are very thankful for John's help driving with Joe to town to have the problem resolved. This is one great place to stay. Thanking you very much for a great time at your place and we wish you all the best for the new place you are developing. Gabi and Joe
