We absolutely enjoyed our stay. Willy was MORE than accommodating then expected. A tiny little town with tons of charm. The convenience store has just about everything you need. We visited jungle cat world. Lions, Tigers and other cats and animals. Friendly neighbours. Hiking and falls near by, along with an authentic monk temple still being built after 8 or so years. Lots of interesting things minutes drive away. We would definitely recommend. Really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks again to Willy for all of his kindness. Much much appreciated.

We enjoyed a great stay at Free Willy's Place. The host was on site to meet us as we arrived and provided us with great directions on how to access his site. He made sure we were well looked after. It is a quiet area; the first night there was a party next door but it had all quieted down by 10:00 p.m. There is an art studio located very close to Free Willy's Place - don't miss it - we enjoyed a fantastic tour of 'The Secret Garden'. All in all, a great visit!

What a sound experience to be hosted by Willy. Willy truly sets the standard for HH and goes above by exceeding in professionalism, accommodation, support service and communication. A beautiful set-up he has which is well maintained, level, private, open and felt with love. The effort given to pre plug in the tree lights on site for night was magical and didn't go unnoticed. As a person, I felt - Willy has a fun and light spirit and prides attention to detail as a fellow traveller. He was easy to talk to and respected my space. Lovely person. Conveniently located in a quite yet central spot, all necessary needs are available. Mini grocery/LCBO/lotto store and local country store across the road, a municipal library, restaurant 2x, town auto shop, parks and trails, and I'm sure more (this is all I did). A blessing to be accepted to stay with Willy and his family. The neighbours and small nit community are respectful, friendly and private. Thank you Willy.

We were greeted as soon as we pulled onto Willy's street. This was our first time boondocking and were treated like we were family from the first moment. Willy communicated with us and helped us set up. We met some great neighbors and had a great evening around the fire with some new friends and great laughs. We really enjoyed the locals. Everyone is really friendly & welcoming and if you enjoy art/landscaping you have to check out the secret garden. We can't wait to visit Willy and his neighbors (New Friends) in the quaint town of Bethany again... 5 Stars 🌟 Free Willy's
