    Let me start with this: Robbie & Nancy are the most generous hosts you could imagine. Actually, they gave up their RV a few years ago and have only used BW as hosts, never as guests, an that tells you everything you need to know about these welcoming people. That plus the fact that we are still enjoying the leftover baked beans from our dinner together. They have lived in the Mayo area, other than a few years out west, for their entire lives and know everyone and everything. Their house is on Big Lake and if you get a chance, be sure to go for a swim in its warm, clear water. Very refreshing and a great way to rinse off the bug spray after hiking in the nearby Ecological Reserve with Robbie. An experience not to be missed! As the description mentions, their place is down a somewhat steep gravel driveway but our AWD Sorento handled the trip back up without a whimper. Thanks, R & N, and despite your expressions of horror at the thought of visiting Toronto, we look forward to seeing you here!

    R&N gave us a very warm welcome. N even had a goodie bag prepared for us with some helpful things for the RV and toys for our little daughter. That was sooo nice!! In the evening they took us on a boat ride all across the lake. Interesting locations and conversations. Thank you for hosting us!

    To say that this view is picturesque does not do it justice. Fall asleep gazing at the stars while listening to the waves lap against the shore and wake up to the sounds of the birds. You will feel instantly relaxed. Robbie and Nancy are very generous hosts and have a lot of interesting stories. You will never forget your stay in Mayo.

    Merci N & R pour votre chaleureuse hospitalité! Cet endroit est extraordinaire, au bord d’un magnifique lac. Nos hôtes ont été des plus accueillants, nous offrant une belle balade sur leur ponton à notre arrivée. À notre réveil, nous avons eu l’opportunité de mettre nos kayaks à l’eau pour un rando sur le lac, suivie d’une belle rivière. Nous recommandons chaudement Big Lake boondocking!! Un grand merci!

    MC & I had a very memorable fun stay for so many reasons. N & R are very attentive, helpful, accommodating, respectful and generous. Their thoughtfulness is a gift we will always treasure. We are forever grateful that we had the pleasure to meet you and your family. We can not wait to meetup with you in Jekyll Island! We hope to see you soon. All the best.
