Hosts were very friendly, and we enjoyed our visit getting to know them a bit and their AirBnB guests too. Very accommodating and kind.

Above and beyond

The hosts at Peaceful Gardens went above and beyond. They welcomed me as their guest and we are now lifelong friends! It was a joy to listen to their stories and get to know them. I'll be back!

Outstanding Hosts

DebbieJean was amazing. The site was clean, level and easy to get into.
They offered fresh water and electricity.
We visited with them two of the three nights we were there, and had a great time.
Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Peaceful Garden Sanctuary

This is one that we put on our list to come back to, and spend the full time at. These two hosts could not have been more welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them!

New friends and convenient location

This couple were such gracious hosts!! We had electric hookup and water access. We sat on their porch overlooking the beautiful garden and had a wonderful conversation. We chose this location for it’s proximity to Mackinaw City/Mackinac Island. We enjoyed our time and would definitely stay again. Thankful to have met two new friends:)

Genuine hospitality

What a wonderful place! The welcoming atmosphere was felt all around us. Wished we could have stayed longer! Thank you for allowing our granddaughters the use of the pool. They had so much fun!

The Backyard oasis was amazing! Evening campfires and morning coffee were such peaceful moments. Conversations were fun!

These two are awesome people. We are happy to call them friends. We will see you again!

Beautiful flower garden and very friendly host

We enjoyed talking with the host and viewing the exceptional view of the garden from the back yard area. The area was quiet and very convenient for walking to through town.

Don't miss this location if in the area!

Serenity gardens

Thank you so much to my hosts! Had a wonderful experience Boondocking at this peaceful and tranquil location. The hosts were very inviting and offered the use of their beautiful pool and garden as well. I was able to see things in Onaway that I would not have seen otherwise had the host not recommended several attractions! This is why I enjoy boondockers welcome as hosts always know the best sites to visit.

Wonderful experience

Can’t say enough about these folks. Special place and special people in a special little town. Can’t wait to see you guys again soon! Thanks for teaching us about the Danish concept of hygge!

Perfect locale for NE Michigan!

Delightful, charming couple! They are exactly why we joined Boondockers Welcome. Our spot was perfect. Next to a residential street in the quaint, small town of Onaway. Pull through, no backing up required! Sitting on their patio overlooking the beautiful garden, replete fountains and their own sculptures of flora and fauna, was the perfect end to a busy day of being a tourist in NE Michigan. Thank you so very much for your par excellence hospitality.
