Awesome couple. Cool Location.

Locations was perfect for visiting my sisters friends who live near their location. Very interesting couple with 3 very sweet dogs I had the chance to meet. If you get the chance to go on the tour of the place take it :) Very cool. Hope to see you guys this winter.

A night off the road...

Not far off the highway, but fine country style setting.
Made to feel welcome after a long day in holiday weekend traffic on the road.
Nice paved site under trees and by the garden, we settled in early for a good nights sleep.
Had a pleasant visit with our gracious hosts and their sweet dog in the morning,
then were off for another day on the road

Hidden Gem! You may pass it by but you'll be glad you came back

What a lovely quiet place! A nice shade tree to park under with a nice level spot. Not to mention how inviting the host are. We happened to come at a great opportunity time, as he was in middle of I've those projects he can do by his stuff but a second set of hands is preferred. So it was great to have some time bonding in the garage. They are such a fascinating couple with so many great stories hidden. You will feel right at home. They have so many great stories to share and boy what wealth of knowledge. He helped diagnose a problem that was way easier than I originally thought it would be . Looking forward to meeting them on the road sometime soon!

Great Stay!

Pleasant and comfortable stay, close to Olympia/Tacoma. Pretty property and very gracious host. Flexible when our schedule changed because of RV repairs.

Fascinating Hosts

I found Bogie to be quite fascinating in his life's accomplishments as well as openly friendly and accomodating. Meeting these hosts has been a real treat.

Great host!

Really enjoyed seeing the BMW motor bikes that Kevin rebuilds! Very interesting! We had a problem with our RV that needed a repair and he recommended us to a place not far from his home. Went there the next morning and the owners went out of their way to do the repair and get us back on the road.
We never would have know about this shop had we not been staying at Bogie! Thanks so very much! Super hosts!

Super nice guy

we parked or 35 ft class A here while visiting my sister in DuPont. easy to pull in and turn around. as a bonus, I got to see his passion for motorbikes.
this motivated me to do the same and soon I will be hosting in Bakersfield .CA.
God Bless You Bogie

Beemer people!

Good rv conversations with Kevin, especially liked his rig. My opinion, it was ahead of it's time.
Lots of BMW bike history here as well.
Thanks for hospitality.

Great spot and welcoming hosts!

As our host, Bogie, on his site states, his place is off a busy street and somewhat hidden by trees, and has a driveway with low hanging branches at the foot and not very visible from the street.
We were glad to have his personal directions as the GPS wasn't the proper way to approach this address.
Once up the driveway there is so much space it is easy to manoeuvre and we had no problems driving out the next morning. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful, and easy to chat with. Bogie generously showed us his hobby machines- you need to go just to see what is there! Very interesting and great to learn about. Thank you for the hospitality and we recommend your site to others who may be in the area.

Perfect little hideaway

Fantastic host that was very laid back and kind. Their space worked out perfect for us for 2 nights and was in a great location. We visited for a while and they told us about harbor days down in Olympia. We took the kids and had a great time. I wish I were neighbors!

Great couple in the heart of town

Hosts were very kind. Not intrusive but very welcoming. They let the kids pick blackberries off their bushes. Plenty of space to park.

Hidden Gem

Bogie is new to BW just like us. We are so glad that they were willing to host us. They are full of surprises. They are both so talented, and generous. I'm not sure that you'll see a cooler rig out there, than the one they have. I'm not even going to spoil it for you. If you want to stay with one of the most eclectic hosts out there, and see some of the coolest machines around, pay Bogie a visit. Not to mention they know so much about Olympia and the surrounding hidden gems to go see. We definitely hope to run into these guys again, whether on the road, or on our stop through Olympia.
