Our location is perfect for those looking for outdoor adventures. Nestled on the south shore of Lake Nipissing, the area is best known for its stunning sunset views and sand bottom beaches. Our 2 acres, country living home has plenty of space to accommodate boondocking travelers. Our yard is private and secluded, surrounded by the woods. We are located across the road from the lake, but a short 10 minute walk to enjoy the nearest public beach. Enjoy an evening campfire, or swim at the beach. Homeowner is a collector of antique snowmobiles and is always willing to share the history of the winter sport. If you want to play tourist, Nipissing Village is 12km south, with a little museum and old fashioned candy store. Visit Callander, 15 km east, home to the Callander Bay Heritage Museum which is the perfect spot to learn about Canada's historically famous, Dionne Quintuplets. Or visit the Callander waterfront, with a beach, splash pad and playground. North Bay is 30 km, with plenty to see and do. In North Bay, visit the waterfront with a beach, playscape, miniature train and two hand painted carousels. Take a boat tour of Lake Nipissing on the Chief Commanda. Three local microbreweries, museums, fishing, beaches, hiking & bike trails throughout the area. Please note: our home is also shared part-time by our friendly, grand-dogs, who run loose on the property. **When staying, we also welcome setting up a tent next to your rig, if you need extra space for your family. ** Please do not bring firewood from outside the region.

We are a newly retired couple from Northern Ontario who enjoy traveling in our 5th wheel. Purchased our 5th wheel 6 years ago, but prior to that, we traveled the country, tenting with our children. My husband has a passion for vintage snowmachines and classic cars. I enjoy native drumming, kayaking, and stand up paddleboarding. Living in the north has given us the perfect environment for enjoying year round outdoor activities. We can’t wait to meet other Boondockers through our travels and look forward to hosting.

    We can't say enough wonderful things about Jewel's Place. Allen and Lynne are wonderful hosts. They greeted us as soon as we arrived . Almost immediately Allen was repairing our loose wheel. There is a fire pit, outdoor furniture, firewood, electric, and water. Lynne gave us a 1/2 dozen fresh eggs from her henhouse. The conversation was wonderful. They took us to a sunset at their neighbor's beach on Lake Nipissing. Of course there were adequate directions, adequate space. The site was level and quiet. We really enjoy meeting authentic and local people hosting in the Boondockers Welcome program. Thank you, Allen and Lynne, for your hospitality.

    Lyne and Allan were so gracious and accommodating. We only spent one night but it was so worth it. Thank you both for your hospitality.

    What a great spot! Very easy to get to and so quiet and peaceful. Lots of room to turn our 5th wheel around in their large graveled area. While we were disappointed not to meet the hosts as they were away, we did meet one of their neighbours who was extremely friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend this spot!

    A firepit, adirondack chairs to relax in, an outdoor patio set to eat at, firewood, 30amp, water, wifi, friendly and accommodating hosts. These guys thought of everything. My only regret is we didn't stay longer. Lyne and Allan, thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

    This is a must stay place!! Although our hosts, Lyne and Allan were away (on their on adventure), we were welcome to stay. I had a wonderful chat with both Lyne and Allan before our stay - awesome couple. Their ‘little piece of heaven’ is just that! Easy access, yard is huge - parking was so easy! Was amazed that we had 30amp hookup and water available. We met their awesome neighbour ‘Bob’. He invited us to his ‘piece of heaven’ across the road, to watch an amazing sunset on Lake Nippising. Sure hope our travels will bring us up this way again, and we get to meet these lovely hosts. You won’t regret a stay at Jewels Place!
