Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a couple who love travelling. We enjoy peace and quiet, in fact we thrive on it. If we are guests, you won't even know we are there. One of us Is retired and the other one will be working a few more years then retiring. We will take shorter trips for now and longer trips once we are both retired. We love the outdoors, wilderness hiking, canoeing, exploring. Have been sailors and owned a cruising sailboat for many years (but not now). Love being grandparents of three and hope to take one or more of them on RV'ing trips.

Skills & Expertise to Share

As a couple, we have a variety of skills (mechanics, computers, sewing, technical writing)

waynew.donnan's Pets

Our elderly dog, Daisy, passed away in 2018. We miss her. Although we have had cats over the years, after our last one died due to cancer we have not brought another cat into our lives just yet. So at the present time, we are without pets.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Anywhere interesting and quiet.

Only one thing would have made this better - meeting the hosts!

This was a beautiful, beautiful spot for us to spend the night. Our Roadtrek 200 Popular fit perfectly by the tree in their front parking area, and we grilled our hamburgers and enjoyed our dinner as the sun went down. They were kind enough to let us put more freshwater in our tank, and they offered us a connection to 20 amp service, but we declined.
Sadly, our friendly hosts couldn’t be at home as they were really busy that afternoon and evening, doing repairs on their cottage, but we did have great phone chats! Happily, their daughter L. paid us a visit at the house, and we had a great time chatting about France as the light waned.
We got the sense that we and the hosts had much in common, and we hope that some day we’ll be able to visit with them in person! Thanks so much.

Welcoming and quiet stay

Very friendly and helpful hosts! Great secluded spot conveniently close to the road but not close enough to be loud! Thanks so much!


August 2021

Everything We Needed

Wayne & Donna provided us with everything we needed. A quiet place to rest & do a bit of work. All the water and power we needed; a safe place to leave our rig, while we visited Ottawa.
Thank-you very much, Wayne and Donna for your generosity!

Nice, quiet rural location

Thanks for your hospitality. I enjoyed your quiet location and being close to the Diefbunker was a bonus!


July 2021

Enjoyable Stay

W and D and daughter & dog Sunny were welcoming hosts. Their home is located on bike friendly roads and nearby bike & running trails. Very quiet neighborhood and fantastic stay close to downtown Ottawa.


June 2021

Peaceful stay in the Capital

We enjoyed our 5 night stay here and found it to be quiet and peaceful.
It was away from downtown Ottawa and had a country setting.
The hosts were wonderful, and even invited us to use their pool.
I enjoyed walking my husky around the walking trails that they had around the property and we would love to return again in the future.


May 2021

Such Great folks!!

This was our second visit here, intentionally!! We stayed on our way East and now again going West. Waynew.donnan are quite simply the best. You just can't go wrong here. Very highly recommended.

Amazing stay

Visited here the second time with my family. As always, Donna accepted my request quickly, and Wayne was very welcoming. This will be my go-to destination whenever I travel to Ottawa.

Above and beyond!

We enjoyed staying here. Perfect place, and the hosts were very welcoming. We stayed for another night too. Donnan assisted us with sanidumps and helped us with the basics on route to her place. Wayne was particularly helpful even when we arrived late at night. We will definitely stay here again!

Great location, quiet night. Thanks to Waynew.donnan for agreeing to host us in their absence. Sorry we couldn’t meet, but thanks for the stay.


July 2020

Great Stay!

Boondocker hosts tend to be so very generous, and waynew.donnan is certainly no exception. We enjoyed several nights here; visited the city and at the hosts suggestion, went to the Farmer's Market in Carp and biked some wonderful trails. Great Stay!

We enjoyed a peaceful night at Wayne and Donna’s. Appreciated their hospitality and being able to visit awhile. We would recommend this location!


August 2019

Wonderful stop just outside Canada's capital.

What great hosts! Not only did we have a comfortable place to put the rig, but hosts waynew.donnan had suggestions for attractions in the city (the light show by Parliament was fantastic!) And helpful tips and answers to our questions as new owners. Gracious hosts and a great stay! Please visit us in MN some day! :-)


August 2019

Terrific host

Donna and Wayne were very gracious and delightful to spend time with. Getting from their home to the heart of Ottawa was very easy. We enjoyed their company so much that we hope that they will visit us in Wilmington, NC. The host site was terrific - off the road, quiet and shady. About 4 km from Carp which is delightful little village where you can get a great meal at Annie's Village Cafe.

Country Home in the Capital

Already sent favorable reference.


June 2019

wonderful hosts

Thank you waynew.donnan, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you. It was a nice spot to camp while a just a short trip to visit our national capital. We also very much appreciated your warm hospitality and help in our time of need.


May 2019

Great place to be next to Kanata

Donnan were super communicative and accommodating. They weren't there but made it easy to hook up and host our young family. It was such a large property!

Smiling in the rain

Such a kind reception at short notice and despite the downpour - much appreciated. Hope we meet again.

Great Jumping Off Point to Visit the national Capital Region

Wayne and Donna are two enterprising business people who are willing to make space and time available for a Boondocker. They camp in a small tear drop trailer when they are not working on their cottage or maintaining their spacious rural setting property. I do not know where they get the energy, but they are certainly generous with their time. Throughout our stay they would occasionally check in and make sure we had everything we needed. We felt exceptionally safe and well taken care of. Power and water were always available. The boondocking site is 35 min. from downtown Ottawa, making it very easy to commute to wherever you are going as a tourist in the National Capital Region.

Great place and hosts while visiting Ottawa

Great Hosts and a great place to stay. We are so thankful for the hospitality. We stayed for three nights the first two nights while the hosts were away. Glad that we met them on the last afternoon and enjoyed socializing in our trailer in the evening. Very convenient for visiting Ottawa, nice location.


July 2018

Great absentee hosts!

Ok, don’t take that wrong, I mean it was great of them to offer to host us while they were away. Add to that that they already had guests coming! The place was great, easy to find and bonus: no mosquitos! Thanks so much for really extending your hospitality.

Our stay at donnstravelling

Our stay at donnatravelling was excellent. We enjoyed a quiet night of sleep before leaving in the morning. Everything was as described in their message. Thank you very much

Supper handy location

They were very accommodating even though we gave them short notice. Very peaceful and quiet even though their driveway is right off the main road.


October 2017

New "old" friends.

Lovely location in the country with an easy drive into Ottawa. The road in front is busy but the noise was hardly noticeable. It is always fun to meet a fellow boondocker who has the type of camper you have admired from afar. Chatting with our hosts was like talking to a long time neighbor over the fence at home. We hardly touched on the things to do in Ottawa so we will be back to this nice location.


September 2017

Peaceful Stay

Thanks for hosting the one night, it was greatly appreciated. Hope I can reciprocate on your visit here.


July 2017

Thank you

Thank you for letting us stay at your house for 2 nights. We would like to have seen you may be next time.
Hope you had time at the Park.
