Description

This location is within the city limits of a very small town. Neighbors are close by but fairly unobtrusive. Rigs can park in several fairly level spots in the yard. Two spots on grass may be tricky if it's wet, but these are the best for long rigs. These spots and the gravel parking pad in front of house can access step-down power if desired. (Soon-to-be-upgraded) dirt pad with 30 amp hookup behind house.
We have recently removed trees and branches, but probably want to be 12' or lower to use back of house. There are 3 Public campground dump stations within 5 miles. You are welcome to tie out a pet while you are in the rig or yard, but they can't be loose in town. Feel free to sit out in the yard and use the swing or firepit.

House Rules

Leashed pets are welcome. Be courteous with generator noise if not using shore power. Fairly quiet neighborhood though the houses are close together.

Access Road Conditions

On a paved street just off state and US highway.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Street parking or yard parking near rig.

Super nice hosts

Quiet place. Very friendly family. Provided us with Wi-Fi which we needed to plan our next day’s drive. Enjoyed a short chat with them. Highly recommended.

Casa del Options

Great little space for our short little stays. Our hosts were gracious, friendly and had alternatives for our site location due to a rash of severe storms that hit the region and softened the grounds. The hooked us up with 15 amps and let us top off our fresh water. Y'all enjoy your stay.

MN friendliness 😊

What a nice and welcoming family! And that includes their dogs.
Very quiet neighborhood. Minutes away from Lac Qui Parle state park. Lots of nature to explore in each direction. Thank you for having me!

perfect host!

Quiet spot on the backside of their house. Easy back in off the side street. Needed a little wood to level one corner in the grass. Fast wifi. 30 amp power. H20. Hardly knew when anyone was home. Couldn't have been any better.

Very convenient

The location is convenient, a few blocks off the highway, but quiet. The homeowners greeted us and helps us figure out which spot is best for us. They also let us use the WiFi, it was very helpful because ATT was one bar.

A gas station was just a minute away.

Thank you for hosting us! :)

Quiet and Peaceful

We've been pushing our travel schedule rather hard and for the last several days we've been just behind the nasty weather (that was a huge blessing). We needed a quiet, peaceful afternoon/ evening. We so enjoyed Casa del Goose because they provided just what we needed. We would love to stop here the next time we come through. (We just hope it will not have rained heavily before we stop again; we feel so bad about the deep ruts we left behind due to the soft, rain-soaked ground.)

A quiet place with nice hosts

Having totally messed up dates on my calendar we were able to let our hosts know we were indeed arriving...but a day later than we'd requested. Gracious and welcoming we were shown our site at the edge of their yard and spent 3 nice quiet days and nights. Since the 30amp outlet was inaccessible we were able to plug in to their 15 amp outlet which was lucky as our solar panels weren't getting any sun. The weather did not cooperate for our planned kayaking but we were able to get over to Lac qui Parle SP and a visit to Montevideo where we toured the Milwaukee Road train park. A nice visit on the last night with the couple.

Very nice, helpful people.

Its a great little town. The neighbors are close, but privacy wasn't an issue. It was a pleasant and relaxing stay. Everything went well :)

Friendly folks, charming town

We spent two very pleasant days at our hosts in the charming little town of Watson, MN. Upon their recommendation, we attended the Chippewa County Fair in the nearby town of Motivideo. Some fun! Thanks for a peaceful, relaxing stay, gettejones!
