host Profile

Hosted By AcadianMaine

Age:

65+

Retired, sort of, living in Northern Maine Details: We moved to Northern Maine in 2005, buying an old log-timber built house. We currently maintain the 200 yr old homestead. Our daughter and her family live in North Carolina, her older brother has a summer home in Frenchville, lives in CT. The Martin Acadian Homestead is on the National Registry of Historic Places. Built in 1823-1860, we continue to work to repair and restore it. The Martin Family history extends back to 1636 and the early Acadians from France. We enjoy the four seasons. We gather frequently with family and regularly attend the St.John/St.Paul church in nearby Edmundston, NB. We have been campers for many years, belonging to both FMCA and Good Sam. We are also RVillage, Escapees, and Harvest Host members. Married in Florida, Lois has traveled to all 50 states, Paul still working on the West. We love to have visitors to come see the beauty of the area. We would like a day or two notice. PLEASE be sure to know we are in the United States, not New Brunswick Canada. Hometown: We live in the St. John Valley, in the Northeastern most corner of the contiguous United States, in Madawaska. Home to many historical sites, celebrating the Acadian history, lumber, Maple syrup, paper mill, fishing, hunting, hiking, ATV trails, winter sports, architectural sites, genealogy research centers and much more. Always something to see and do. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Our favorite this summer was Misty Acres Alpaca farm in Sidney, ME. Too many to mention, all have been great. Skills or Expertise to Share: Paul spends many hours on restoration of our historic home. In the summer, he enjoys his mini-farm garden. Lois is active in some local historic preservation interests. We are Advocates for Autistic people, having family on the spectrum. Lois also sews, crochets, learning to quilt and attempts other interesting crafts in her spare time. Trying to establish a leaning center to teach hand-on crafts in fiber arts and other activites, year-round. Hope to meet some of you on our travels. Watch RVillage for updates.

    We stayed with Lois and Paul for 3 nights. Enjoyed some pleasant conversation around the campfire, where they shared some history of the area. The driveway has a bit of a slope, so longer RV's might scrape bottom on the way to the top. Paul was very helpful in getting us set up. Water, sewer and 50 amp service is available. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this location. Thanks for having us .

    We had a marvelous 3 days with this host. We stumbled upon a town-wide festival going on and it was great having having hosts who know the town to give us suggestions and directions about when and where to go.We even attended the fireworks show with them. They are also local historians so that was right up our alley. There was another couple staying there and we got to know them as well. Hopefully our travels will bring us back together with both of these couples somewhere down the road. This is what Boondockers Welcome is all about for us: meeting people and experiencing things we would miss without a good host to guide us.

    My wife, daughter and I were welcomed with open arms. Upon arrival they had an information packet ready for us and invited us to share a meal with them. Throughout our stay they shared their company and suggested places of interest to visit. This was our first experience with a Boondockers host and they couldn't have made a more positive impression.

    This host very generously allowed us to stay at their home when they weren't there. The site is level. They have full hookups including a dump site! Their location is within walking distance to restaurants, shops, and dessert! Madawaska is a very nice town. We are very appreciative of being allowed to stay here even though they weren't going to be home. I'm just sorry that we were not able to meet our hosts.

    What a great location, walking distance to Restraunts and American Legion in Madawaska. Quiet spot with wonderful hosts, they love to have a camp fire and cheat with there quests.
