We had our choice of where we wanted to park our little trailer, so chose a spot in the field where we had a clear view of the gorgeous full moon. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. It’s a lovely farm in the middle of a lovely area.

Gorgeous full moon! A nice, quiet place.

The hosts are very knowledgable and conscious care-takers of the land. We learned a lot about farming and sustainable living, and were also pleased to discover the different kinds of spiritual retreats they host. Amanda thoughtfully involved our ten-year-old in feeding the pigs and holding baby chicks! We also saw lots of wildlife in just a couple days — blue jays, garter snakes, and frogs.

It takes a bit of wandering around the property to really get your bearings, but once you do, you’ll find the hand-painted signs and hidden trails quite charming. The communal fire pit is nice and big, with plenty of seating and fire wood available, all in a lovely secluded clearing.

The numbered campsites in the woods were pretty small (just big enough for a tent, no picnic tables) and not very well cleared. However, there was plenty of flat open field space where we could comfortably set up our car and a couple tents in the shade.

Amanda was very helpful and responsive via text. The kind, conscious vibes of her place are a nourishing, restful change from city life. We would definitely stay with her again!

Response from Amanda , the Host, on August 24th, 2021

Celine and group were super great guests on our land! We always enjoy seeing campers explore and see everything the land has to offer, and Celine did just that in a respectful and contentious way. Celine was very responsive and an excellent communicator. She gave great feedback on how we can continue to improve our camp sites. We really enjoyed having her on the land, and would welcome hosting her again!

Amanda is friendly, helpful with suggestions, and responsive, and camping on her farm was an awesome alternative to camping at sold-out provincial campgrounds. There were tons of native plants and butterflies around, a forest, sheltered areas for tents (though we had the option to camp outside the designated sites, too), great cell service (I'm with Fido), farm animals, a swimming area nearby, and **running water for showering or washing up**!!! We didn't have to use a Tupperware container for cleaning dishes and I'm so thankful for that. Awesome. I would come here again! Thank you, Amanda!

Lots of space and privacy. Sites are on the small side. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Amenities area can be damp so bring proper footwear. Trails through the forest are wonderful. Mother Oak is spectacular. Spotty cell service. An ideal place for peace and to find clarity.
