Great Hosts - Traveling along the Northshore

Yes, all the other reviews are right. The Hosts are great people and the location is pure north woods.

We hope the Hosts will look us up when they travel to the SouthWest. We will have some fun for sure.

And that picture of the baby bear. That is not a cardboard cut out.

From the Host's location you can visit the Wolf Center and Black Bear centers in Ely. And you can make it to Grand Portage and back with time to explore along the way.

We had a great time exploring and a great time meeting these fun people.

Comfortable Seclusion

Rich and Sandy were very hospitable. They are on 30 wooded acres which is very peaceful. I would recommend staying here if you are in the area.

Rich & Sandy are a wonderful addition to your list of hosts.
They are a great couple that goes out of their way to make you feel welcome.
Their host location IMHO is perfect for any size &/or type of RV.
It's location is perfect for exploring the NW area of Minnesota alongthe
Great Lake, Superior coast & less than 100 miles to the border of Canada.
And also very convenient to many MN State & National Forests w lakes & campgrounds.
I very much enjoyed being their 1st guest & I feel that we have created a new friendship.
I do hope to return again.
Thank you Rich & Sandy.

Amazing experience

My husband and I have been boondocking for years but this is our first encounter on Our hosts set the bar impossibly high for us to ever have a better encounter with our next host.

They are truly genuine people and gave us a marvelous experience. Anything we needed they were right there to help out. Within a couple of hours, we felt like old friends, enjoying a campfire with plenty of laughs and stories.

The acreage was out in the middle of the woods and came fully furnished with a bear, rabbits, birds, deer, and other wildlife. Our rig is 36 ft with 2 slides, and there was plenty of room. A fellow Boondocker was also a guest, and we very much enjoyed visiting with him.

The location was just what we were looking for. Close enough to the attractions we wanted to visit such as Gooseberry Waterfalls, Two Harbors, Split Rock Lighthouse, The Black Beach (which was amazing), several other waterfalls and beaches in the area, and of course Lake Superior. Yet it was just far enough away from civilization to give us the fresh air and brilliant stars the Minnesota Forest provides.

Our hosts
were kind enough to spend the day taking us sight seeing to Grand Marais and to a hidden gem Naniboujou Lodge. We would not have found this on our own. Then they took us up to Grand Portage to see an amazing waterfall and gulch on the Minnesota Canada border.

The next morning we were given a memorable ATV ride with awe inspiring views.

So, our first far exceeded our expectations. We have made life-long friends and look forward to our next encounter.
