Must say so on application or will not be accepted. Suggested Local Attractions:Nelson is a unique small Canadian city with an atmosphere and many restaurants. hot springs nearby and much hiking or mountain biking or ebiking.

We were allowed to stay two nights at Diana and John's property and felt very comfortable. The nights were quiet. Diana and John were excellent and gracious hosts. We had nice conversations and were also able to walk around the beautiful property. Diana takes care of the green house and the many flowers on and around the wounderful house. As a former pilot, John has his model airplanes and a model railway as a hobby. Very interesting. Thank you very much. Martina & Wolfgang

We spent a wonderful night on John's lower driveway. John was very attentive and walked down from his house to check in with us and make sure we had everything we needed. He is a very interesting man and regaled us with stories of his time as a doctor, a pilot and an author!We accepted his generous offer of electricity. We slept peacefully in his quiet neighbourhood. In the morning John offered to take us on a tour of his 2 acre property. We wandered through his vegetable garden, pine forest and had a tour of his extensive outdoor model train track. It was a highly enjoyable stay and I would highly recommend boondocking there.

Enjoyable stay with a nice couple. Road getting to house, which is beautiful, is somewhat steep so timid drivers may want to skip. Great location

Absolutely beautiful property to wander once we got set up. Our hosts were so welcoming and we had a lovely visit before settling for the night! Their gardens were stellar and everything was in full bloom - it was just amazing!
