It was great to pull off the interstate and have a level site waiting for us with water and electric. Very kind gentleman welcomed us.

Great first stay

Recently joined as host and guest and this was our first stay. Host was very helpful and friendly. Area was beautiful. Parking area was level pavement with power conveniently located.

Jack was great and allowed us the use of his salt water pool to cool off and relax after a day of traveling.

If your in the area needing a place to stay you won’t be disappointed.

Enjoyed our talk with Jack on a very rainy evening. Beautiful well-maintained yard, and enjoyed watching the ducks.

Kindness and Fireflies

Jack and Pat met us in the driveway of their beautiful home with picturesque greenery surrounding their property. We saw several bright fireflies (or lightening bugs) glowing in the evening sky. It was so beautiful after a long day of driving. They got us all dialed in with their level blacktop pad with electrical and water. They are both such kind people and hosts! We would love to come back when traveling through the area. Thank you Jack and Pat!

Lovely people and wonderful stay!

This was our first time using Boondockers and if all of the places are as amazing as Pat_Jack’s we will be using it as much as possible! It was just a short distance from the highway and plenty of space to navigate for backing the trailer onto the concrete pad. The hosts made us feel so welcome, and we enjoyed hanging out and talking with them in their beautiful backyard! They even let our dogs run around inside the fenced-in area - for which we were all grateful! Thanks so much for the wonderful experience!

Enjoyed our stay at Off The Beaten Path

Enjoyed our stay after a few weeks of intense travel and found new friends for life!
Easy to find! Appreciated the paved pad during inclement weather.

Cows, ducks, birds and a friendly, visiting dog were a bonus!
Beautiful area with many attractions!

Thank you, Off The Beaten Trail for a wonderful respite from our intense traveling schedule! Enjoyed meeting you, and consider you friends for life! Quiet setting but the ducks, birds and cows were a bonus!

Easy to find, the paved pad was great, since it rained during our stay. Lots to see in this beautiful area of TN! Highly recommended!

Quiet and peaceful

This was our first stay as a Boondockers guest and it was a great choice. Jack met us at the front of his property and guided us in. After a short conversation we settled in. We walked our dogs up the quiet road and our dogs loved the cows next door. What a beautiful country setting. Our evening was very peaceful. Jack was a wonderful and gracious host and we hope to be back sometime in the future!

Warm and friendly

My stay was short but very, very nice. Pat_Jack meet me outside his house when I arrived and explained where to set up and offered me any hookups I might want. We had a very pleasant chat that I think would have gone on longer if it hadn’t been so cold! All in all this was exactly what Boondockers Welcome is all about: a friendly host offering a piece of their home to a fellow traveler. Pat _Jack is a wonderful place to stay.

Quiet and pleasant stay

Booked last minute due to a sudden change of plans and took our request a day out. We were just passing through for one night and it was a perfect stop for us. We especially appreciated the stop to rest due to the extremely cold weather of 20 for the night. Very quiet area which we did enjoy as well. Jack was waiting for us as we arrived and got us all set up in our spot. Very friendly and we enjoy our short stay. If passing through again will definitely reach out again!

Thanks!

Cozy spot.

This host has a perfectly cozy spot just off the beaten path, just as their name suggests. They were extremely gracious, and I highly recommend this spot for anyone passing through this area.

Classy and convenient

San absolute treat to be able to stay here. Very welcoming and friendly.
Make sure you follow the instructions. It's very important to do this. It'll save you some headache. The GPS doesn't know the important changes that you will need to follow. Other than that, this is a perfect location. Right where you can get to some amazing sights. Plus the neighborhood is very friendly. And I second everything said about Pat_Jack. They are wonderful.

Sweet, wonderful hosts

We really enjoyed getting to know the host (at a good distance), they were both extremely kind and accommodating.

It is really important that you follow the rules on how to arrive to their home, don't pay attention to the GPS. We missed the turn he suggested and followed the GPS and there is a very steep drop that scrapes the RV.

He was very welcoming and we really enjoyed meeting him and his wife (socially distanced)

It was nice to have access to electricity and water for the night. We will definitely have to go back some time

Winding Road to a Warm TN Welcome

Great location, back-in site on their beautiful corner property. We were respectful of social distancing, yet sat around on their screened in porch & shared stories until dark. Met their dogs which went a long way to fill our empty heart after losing our own boy, Jake. It was a very lovely evening. We had a one night stay here.
Beautiful countryside, star lit night, horses grazing in the distant pasture & Great Hosts— what else could you ask for!!
Thanks so much, we hope to come back again & we Highly Recommend!

Generous and friendly

We had a great stay with Jack and Pat. Jack met us at the driveway when I came showed us where we could park and hook us up to electric. We spent some time on their patio talking until dinner time and left out early. We are very grateful for such generous people who offer a place for us to stay on the road.

Fabulous Hosts

Pat_Jack were outstanding hosts and even invited us for a socially distanced visit. The site is very level and they even had water and a 30 amp hook up. My wife and I enjoyed their company for our quick overnight visit. We departed at 0800. We would definitely come back and hope we get to.

A Blessing

Thanks for letting us stay, it was a God sent. It worked out very well in planning for our granddaughter's wedding. All went well and you folks were a part in making it a success. Sorry we did not get a chance to meet you. Your place was very accommodating and a beautiful place, nestled near the historic town of Jonesboro. We had a chance to visit it. Thanks for letting us stay an extra night (Sun.). Blessings to you folks. By the way, you have a nice looking RV. My little R-pod looked like a mouse next to it, but we love our home away from home. God bless and have a safe trip home.

super peaceful and quiet

I enjoyed a wonderful stay w my hosts. They are very generous and accommodating. The site is level and some shade. Horses nearby. Nice quiet country roads. I highly recommend a visit to Bristol VA TN to the Birthplace of Country Music Museum. Bristol Caverns look like fun too.
PS Follow their directions and not your GPS. Easier route.

Hidden gem right off of highway

We stayed here for one night halfway through our 12hr trip back home. Jack gave us a detailed instructions how best to get to the site. He was waiting for us to arrive by the site to help us hookup.
The site is big and mostly level. Electricity and water hookup easily accessible.
Pat and Jack invited us to their back patio to spend some lovely time to chat and relax after a long trip.
Very friendly hosts! Thanks again for your great hospitality, Pat and Jack!!

Amazing Hosts

We were grateful for our stay at Off the Beaten Path. We had a blowout on our way to our host’s sight which caused us to be three hours later than we expected so that we arrived after dark. Our host told us to come on anyway and met us in the dark and helped us to get set up. He even had an enclosed area where he allowed our puppy to get some exercise. We enjoyed our conversation with this wonderful couple. We couldn’t ask for a better host!

Our first BW stay!

Jack & Pat are incredible host! This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay and they made it easy. They were very accommodating and very helpful. Their property is very beautiful and had all of the necessities (electric & water) for our night's stay.

They communicated well & responded quickly to all of our questions.

They were kind of enough to give our little pup, Bella, a run of their place. She enjoyed meeting their dogs!

Even though we were all covid aware - we were able to sit around their patio and enjoy a glass of wine and had a wonderful conversation.

To summarize, they spoiled us with our first BW stay. We definitely would stay here again and we would recommend their place "Off the beaten path"!!

Excellent hosts!

What a wonderful first stay! Pat and Jack are absolutely lovely. Inviting, helpful, interesting, accommodating ...are just a few glowing words I can use to describe them! They have a beautiful home in an easy to drive to location. Jack met me outside and helped me get my little travel trailer Into its spot in the “driveway made for campers”. I even had the luxury of plugging into electric and option of water hookup as well! A large beautiful Fully fenced-in back yard where my dog was in heaven. We were respectful of the social distancing and sat around an outdoor patio enjoying a bottle of wine sharing life stories until it got dark and we all decided it was time to turn in!
It was dark and quiet....conducive to one of the best nights of sleep, even my dog slept in an extra hour til 8am
We woke to the fragrance of the honeysuckle outside my beds’ open window then went out for a short walk down the road along the horse farm fence.
I’d call it a slice of perfection found in a small country “neighborhood“
Jack and Pat and “Off the Beaten Path” are a true gem!

Wonderful Stay!

Mr Jack and Ms Pat were THE BEST! And everything was perfect! The spot was level, we so appreciated the 30 amp service, the location is beautiful!
They welcomed us with open arms. Since we’re all Marylanders, we reminisced about that area. East Tennessee is just beautiful, with its meandering roads. Perfect spot near Kingsport, TN
We are so thankful for this opportunity in so many ways!

Beautiful countryside!

Thanks to Jack and Pat for allowing us to sit a spell on their property in beautiful East Tennessee! We were all very sensitive to social distancing during the virus crisis, so conversations were held at a distance and we were unable to chat over coffee or wine, but we still felt the warmth of their hospitality! Notes to other Boondockers who wish to stay here: please be sure to follow Jack’s directions to the house; our GPS still wanted to route us down Lovelace instead of Bank (Jack’s directions), even after I shaped the route to take us down Bank. The corner of Loveland and route 93 has a VERY steep drop right on the turn, and I was concerned that even my compact car might bottom out (but it didn’t). Bank is narrow with some blind hills, but if you take it slow you’ll be fine. Jack’s driveway is slightly sloped, but we were able to level our 32’ Class A and push out the slide. Your reward will be lovely green countryside with horses grazing in the field next door! Thanks again, Jack and Pat!!

Warm, welcoming stay in TN

This was a perfect place to get off Hwy 40 for a good nights stay on a cross country road trip. Jack and Pat are warm and welcoming hosts and told us much about the local area. We enjoyed our stay and plan to stop again on our next trip through the area!

Warm Welcome at the End of a Long Road

Travelling from Harrisburg, Pa to Fall Branch, Tennessee was a long day...

Our hosts were waiting for our arrival and were ready to help us with our rig. 30amps power and water were a treat!

Around a glass of wine, they helped us clarify our destination since we had to decide to go to Texas or Florida the next morning. Their advice was most welcomed and we decided to go towards Tampa. Thank you so much for your kindness.

Warm welcome!

What a nice place to spend the last night of 2019. We’ve been here before and were happy to return. Perfect place to stop on our way south, not far from I-81. Pat_Jack are welcoming and gracious hosts - so nice to see them again.

Warm Welcome Great Stay

Wow what an experience, we booked early as we stayed Thanksgiving night. We were welcomed with open arms. As an example of the warmth shown we were invited to Thanksgiving dinner. We enjoyed great conversation, meeting of the hosts extended family, including all the dogs I think there were five in all, all vying for attention. The location is very convenient to the 81 and a great pivot point to for travels in any direction, power and water are available overall an enjoyable pleasant stay.

Thanks to you both and to the family for making us feel so welcome 5 stars plus.

Great Hosts! Five star rating!!!😊

What an incredible story this generous couple has to tell. Their site is in a convenient location for anyone traveling on I-81, is easy to find, easy to back in to, and is in a quiet semi-rural area. They are very warm and welcoming. It was wonderful to get a chance to visit with them and hear their stories. We had time to socialize but also had time to rest up after a long hard travel day. If you’re in the area, we highly recommend a stay with Pat_Jack. And if you’re there on a Saturday night and love music, check out Carter Family Fold Music Show which is about 35 minutes away. We didn’t, but wish we had. Guess we’ll have to come back!
