Quiet, older, suburban neighbourhood that is less than a half hour drive by car to downtown Halifax. In 2022 the city moved their bus stop and it is now 32 minute walk away. Uber and Bob’s Taxi (902-463-2222) are available. Minutes drive to local eateries, entertainment, etc. World class walking and biking trails are 5 minute walk away at Shubenacadie Canal Park and walking and biking trails on private land are a 5 minute walk away in the other direction. Shopping at MicMac Mall, downtown Halifax, etc. Museums, the Discovery Centre, and other attractions are a car or bus ride away. Peggy’s Cove, which you can get to by car, is a highlight for anyone travelling to Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy (Burntcoat Head Park) is about a 45 minute drive, and is world reknown for having the highest tides in the world. We just had our boondocking spot paved in the spring 2022. If your rig or vehicle are leaking please do not request a stay with us. We now have a large stain on our new pavement that won’t go away no matter how much dish soap we put on it.

Retired, we have done a lot of dry camping around our province and Newfoundland and now that restrictions are lifted we look forward to finally using our membership and seeking out new places and meeting new people on the Boondockers network. We have met many interesting people over the past three years as a Boondockers Host. Details: Active retirees. Home Town: Waverley, Nova Scotia, Canada is where we live. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We hope to have more experiences boondocking. We stayed with two lovely Boondockers Welcome Hosts during our briefer than expected 2019 US trip. We hope to continue our US trip before too long. Skills or Expertise to Share: We bought our first RV (class A Coachman Mirada) in 2018 not knowing anything about operating them. The former owner gave us a great orientation and our long time neighbours, also RVers, have given us lots of advice. We used the RV on a couple weekend trips and then spent 10 days exploring Newfoundland. What a trip! Since 2019 we have owned a class b+ and spent another two weeks in Newfoundland as well as short trips around Nova Scotia and music festivals with friends. We briefly owned a travel trailer when the class b+ got too small (adopted a 40 lb pup), but we enjoy the all in one experience best so we are currently driving a class c Bigfoot. We no longer feel like new rvers, but still new to using the boondocking network for our own trips. Although no longer new to rving, we feel there is always more to learn and we look forward to exchanging stories and knowledge with other boondockers. On the home front we are always working on a new project — renovating, gardening, or landscaping.

While there is a road right next to the property, the location close to Halifax can not be beat and the continuous hum of traffic did not bother us. The host was absolutely lovely and the dog the sweetest. We had a very comfortable stay on level brand new tarmac, so recommended!

Incredible hosts. they deserve 10 stars. We had a wonderful hour and a half visit in their backyard. Incredible location to see Dartmouth and Halifax. The highlight of our visit was Kastle the dog they rescued. He was very fun and playful and just the right size with spectacular coloring. We wanted to take him home with us. Very well trained dog. If you get any where near here do you best to stay here. The 30 amp plug in and wifi were very appreciated. Fastest wifi we have had in a long time. We hope they come visit us in San Francisco bay area some day.

Scotia Gold is Maritime Gold. Great friendly couple with a really sweet dog. We had a great visit, and the hosts were a fabulous resource for what to do and see in the area. Very close to Costco and major shopping.
