We are on the shore of the Bay of Fundy (walking distance) and the Sandpiper mud flats. Forty two km from Moncton. Twenty eight km from the Nova Scotia border. Magnificent stone cliffs by the water to hike. (Watch the tides) you can get caught. The Sandpiper interpretation centre is three km away where you can watch the flocks of sandpipers carve artwork in the air. Sackville and it’s Mount Allison university is only thirteen km away. Suggested Local Attractions:The city of Moncton has much to see. Museums, shopping and dining. If you can not buy it in Moncton then it is not available anywhere. The village of Dorchester is interesting with old stone buildings and two museums. There is a takeout that serves pretty good grub.

Rules...... what rules! If you smoke we request that all butts be picked up and disposed of. Dog or cat residue must be cleaned up immediately. Treat our property as you would your own. Pick up after yourself and your children. We are somewhat early to bed as we are old...! Sometimes cranky! But use common sense and you are free to do what you want. If the garden is in season you will be allowed to help yourself to most of it. We will let you know what not to pick as we preserve lots for ourselves. There may be plants in the garden not intended for children. There are blueberries available right now on our property that are organic but you must pick them. If you have children we will expect you to look after them and keep them out of trouble.I have some farm equipment and stored stuff so although it is not dangerous in itself ...... kids will be kids. So look after your children. We don’t mind children and enjoy showing them the country way of doing things. But we put in our time and will smile and wave when you leave with yours. Just kidding,(sort of).
Access Road Conditions: Lots of room to turn around on the property and all of the ground is solid. There are no trees to tear off rooftop units or rain gutters. Our driveway is wide enough to make an easy turn. I have brought tractor trailer rigs into the yard with plenty of room to turn. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Lots of room for tow vehicles. Pretty much just pick a spot next to your rig.
Hosted By Frederick
Retired crane operator (country boy). Wife is retired health care. Details: We are retired country folk with a passion for gardening. Our hobbies include woodworking, travel and fishing. We are and will remain un vaxed. The decision is yours. Home Town: We live outside of the village of Dorchester, New Brunswick on Route 935. About five km from the village proper and within view of the inner Bay of Fundy. Our little village is famous for its Sandpiper festival to celebrate the influx of sandpipers every fall on the migration south. There are a couple of small eateries and one small store with a gas bar. The village also boasts a couple of museum buildings that are interesting. The village is located forty two kilometres from the tri city area of Moncton/Riverview/Dieppe where the shopping is great and there are many many eateries. In the opposite direction is the town of Sackville, about thirteen kilometres away on route 106. Another sixteen kilometres will put you into the border town of Amherst Nova Scotia. When coming from the west, take exit 482 off the TCH onto route 106. Follow it to the village of Dorchester and at the four corners half way up the hill take a right onto route 935. Keep right and we are about five kilometres from the four corners. Look for the naked board fence. There is a Boondockers sign on the fence. When coming from the east get off the TCH at Sackville and follow the signage to Dorchester. Route 106. Your gps will try to take you onto Route 935 just outside of town. Don’t take it unless you want to travel on a dirt road. A little rough but a nice drive and dusty. Follow route 106 to Dorchester and turn left onto route 935 at the village square. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Our all time favourite location to boon dock is the Natchez Trace in the US, and have done the trace six times. Skills or Expertise to Share: I have some carpentry skills and as a home builder have the skills to fix or repair most anything. I do some metal work and have a couple of welders and equipment. As country folk we are adept at most anything. Marjorie is retired health care and is an avid quilter. To put it mildly. We are both good cooks and we can/preserve almost everything we eat. Our garden is a source of food and pleasure and we spend lots of time in it. We are also 420 friendly so don’t be afraid to relax here.

Fred and Marg are outstanding hosts. Set us up with power and water. Directed us to the Nature Center where we saw the Sandpipers at low tide. Then drove through the blueberry fields to the cliff overlooking the Bay of Fundy. Awesome place. Their location was on our way to Cape Breton with easy access. Would definitely return.

Our stop here is probably our most favorite boondockers welcome we’ve stayed at. The people are super friendly. We enjoyed chatting with them. Their house and farm is very charming. Their chickens are hilarious to watch and so cute. The site was an easy pull through and pull out. We took a very lovely stroll down the road and through blueberry fields. We really loved it here for our one night!
