Perfect spot!

This is a perfect spot on a beautiful country property. Outside of the busy part of town, so very nice and quiet overnight with shade trees. We had OTA TV signal and 4G Verizon.
Super friendly hosts with great experiences to share.

Very nice stay

We enjoyed our stay and very gracious hosts. Nice private spot with 30 amp power if you need it. We enjoyed meeting our hosts and invited them to make a stop in our driveway on their way south.

2 WONDERFUL NIGHTS

The host was very attentive and assured I had everything I needed. The site was level, private and a 30 amp outlet was provided. There are many things to do in the area: beaches, shops and restaurants. Don't miss the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge. I am grateful that I was welcomed at Redtail Retreat and look forward to staying here again.

A couple so nice, we visited twice

A more humble, down to earth, and genuine couple you will be hard pressed to find! This was our second stay and this time we got to meet the grandkids. They invited my daughter to hang out with them at the pool!
30A service and a cozy spot. A+++

A great stay with great people

This spot was peaceful and welcoming! We were provided with 30A electric and a wonderfully shaded and private spot. My hubby and our dog enjoyed walking around their land. The hosts had cut out a path to make it easier. D and M were as humble and gracious as they come!

Beautifully relaxing

Fantastic spot near Kennebunkport and a short drive to Portland. Scenic area to park the RV with 30amp away from the main house with a fire pit thoughtfully provided. We did not use the fire pit because it was near 100 degrees with the real feel but we sure used the AC! Did not have an opportunity to meet the owners but met Cheryl and her pup, who live in the house, and both were delightful. Looking forward to staying again and meeting the owners next time.

Such a lovely lush property with great parking site! Flat with good hookup and spacious view of green lawn. Gracious hosts!!! Relaxed and willing to visit. We enjoy talking with them. This is our second visit and we would certainly love to come again.

Had to Return

Retail Retreat was our first Boondockers experience last year and certainly merited a return visit this year with an added day to explore Kennebunkport and eat our first lobster rolls of the year.

It was good to see a return of normal with bustling crowds and no masks. Thankfully nearly all the businesses are open.

The hosts are gracious and have added a small fire pit to the parking area.

5 stars for our stay!

Comfortable rural location

We didn’t get the chance to interact with host, we went in knowing that he had previous plans. Yet he did host us and we appreciated it very much. The location is off the beaten path and the hosting spot tough to get into yet we found it quiet and relaxing. The dog also enjoyed being out for the evening weather.

Breathtaking & Super Peaceful

Everything was perfect! The property is exquisite in precisely the charming, rustic way one would expect of Maine. Plenty of space. Super quiet. Excellent and timely communication from host. He was out of town but that was not a problem at all. Parking and electric hookup was easy for me in my 17’ Casita TT. The hike down to the river was spectacular. Yet another wonderful BW experience.

Good Location and Great People

I had a great experience. I did not spend much time at the trailer, as I was running around trying to do as much as possible, but it was a great setting, plenty of space, and I enjoyed the conversations with the host. They were also understanding of me taking apart the wheel well of my truck to install a fuel filter, since all the service places were booked solid. They told about some local events that I was able to take advantage of. Highly recommend for those in the area.

Pleasant Stay!

Stayed for two very hot nights. Host provided 30 amp which was ready for us. Easy to park. Just pull in the drive way and then back up next to the garage. Just an FYI our GPS had the address slightly further up the road so we ended up having to back up a smidge to be able to turn in from the right. Host was very nice and pretty much let us be. Had a nice chat or last night though!

Quiet and peaceful

We had a great stop over here. Our host greeted us and helped us get plugged in and then left us to rest. It has gorgeous views over his acreage - just be sure to do a thorough tick check if you venture into the tall grass 🤣lol
Great spot and very quiet and peaceful.

Great stopping point for nearby day trips.

Our host wasn't at the site for our stay, but gave clear and concise directions. We felt secluded in our own little corner of the property and were able to take day trips to Portland and Kennebunkport. Overall a great experience and the property is beautiful.

Peaceful

Redtail Retreat was perfect setting to sit and enjoy (birds, pups running, Mayer walk to river) or go explore amazing beaches and food15 minutes away. Was warmly welcomed by hosts and great to share stories of travels given our rigs are similar. Definitely would stay again when in the area and keep in touch if paths cross on the road. Happy travels!

Beautiful Setting

We enjoyed our stay at Redtail Retreat. The country setting and privacy of the site were particularly nice. We were glad for the electrical hookup so we could run our heater because one morning it was 29 degrees when we woke up. We only saw our host briefly because he was working, but he was very nice. With beautiful sunsets and a very clear night sky it was a relaxing place as a base to explore nearby Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, and Ogunquit.

Quiet Spot with Great Hosts

This was our second stay with these great hosts. It's a nice quiet spot in a great location close to the coast and lots of things to do. We're already looking forward to next year/stay when we can, hopefully, enjoy our hosts' company a bit more after all the craziness of this year has blown over.

Peaceful Wooded Site

We had a great sign to greet us with instructions on where to park since the hosts had messaged us that they would arrive later than us. Peaceful wooded setting with great sunsets. Wish we could have had some time for conversations & to share travel stories between us. Our stay here was our dog Jake’s last days & he was happy too! A special thanks to Cheryl for the great white rice she made for Jake as his last meals - you are super!

Such great hosts!

Our hosts were so helpful while we stayed in the area and we were well rested and ready to resume our journey with invigorated spirits when we departed. We Really feel like we’ve been on a retreat and now it’s time to ramble on. We won’t forget your hospitality or the beautiful surroundings, especially sunset. We hope to return some day.

It was a true gift to spend the night. The sunset, the morning riverside trail walk, the wonderful conversation and very friendly neighbors/dog were all delightful. We’d love to return and spend more than just 14 hrs.
Thanks again!

We were so glad to return and stay when we had more time to relax and enjoy the area. Our hosts were so nice, and explained the local hikes adjacent to their home down to the river. So beautiful here we loved our time at Redtail Retreat!

Outa Sight

Our first Boondockers experience after 30 years as Motor home travelers was a real eye opener from the warm greeting from the host to the sunset over the hay field. This is a must visit for anyone tired of being jammed up in the RV parks. The trail winds a little over a mile to the Kennebuck river where you will find a restful seat under 300 feet tall evergreen trees and magnificent oak and maple trees several hundred years old over hanging a small but beautiful river rushing over moss covered rocks. The walk back can take you along the river walking on soft pine needles and leaves. There is also a mosquito proof dinner tent just perfect for a picnic with the only sound being the babbling water. We will be back next year.

It was Too Hard to Leave!

Our original 2 night stay turned into another 2 nights request.
Retreat is a good description for their little paradise, everything
is green, lush and expansive.
Starting at the beginning, the hosts greeted us upon our arrival showing us parking, hook ups, parking was in a level and mostly shaded spot, and they even offered us a swim in their pool.
Amazing hosts! Not only do they have many life experiences to share, they are pretty handy you might learn a thing or two from them.
Danlang, thank you both for opening your home to BW guests! We hope we can make this an annual event and that you will come visit with us someday! Stay well! Safe travels!

The Way Life Should Be!!

We looked for a host for two nights where we might see the Perseid meteor showers and star gaze, and Danlang was the perfect spot with pasture lands, sunsets, and even a river walk on conservation lands.
We really connected on so many levels even before we drove down their driveway. Caring and all around good people, we missed a lot of meteors as we sat together in conversation under the stars. Friendly and helpful, highly recommend and great hosts!

We enjoyed a peaceful stay at Redtail Retreat! The hosts greeted us upon our arrival showing us parking, hook ups, and even offered a swim in their pool.
A fabulous sunset with a lovely perennial garden was a definite bonus.
We look forward to returning, as it’s just a short drive to several beautiful beaches.

Danlang was incredibly hospitable to us - came to check-in with us when we pulled in, gave us parking directions, offered us a 30 amp hook up and water. Parking was in a level and mostly shaded spot. Danlang is incredibly friendly and provides good local site recommendations! Easy drive to Portland!

Our first night with BW. Perfect location for a quite evening after a day on the Maine coast beach. Will have to return to chat and view the property on another visit since we left early for a second beautiful beach day.

Super Friendly Host

Danlang was a super friendly host who was kind enough to take us on a tour of his fabulous yard. We really enjoyed meeting him and appreciated the very private and quite camping spot. Definitely a great place to stay the next time we're back in the area!

First boondocking/ peaceful night

The location was perfect stopping point for us on Thursday night as we were headed to Acadia on Friday. The host also accommodated our late arrival. Although we didn’t have an opportunity to meet them because we arrived late and left early, they were extremely communicative via the Boondockers site with details and directions. We hope to get back up and use this site again in the future to explore the area.

It was my first experience with boondockers welcome and I am very happy that it was with Dan and Mary. Their little paradise is perfect and I had all the space I needed.

Quiet in the country!

Dan and Mary were so gracious to let us stay at their retreat.Retreat is a good description for the place as it is green and lush and expansive, out in the country. It was fun to see chickens out strolling on the lawn for their evening walk when we arrived. We didn't get to meet Dan but did Mary, who we felt we could have known for a long time, an instant bond.

We hope on one of their trips to California that they look us up!
Thank you for the great stay.

Serene Stay in the Maine Countryside

I had originally requested to stay with my hosts for a single night and was approved shortly thereafter. I contacted them a few hours later as my arrangements to moochdock had fallen through. Dan could not be more understanding or accommodating. My original single night stay turned in to 3 nights and was very relaxing. The property is rural and the boondocking site is next to the garage, about 50 yards from the house. Dan and Mary greeted me and encouraged me to walk around the property at me leisure. Very serene and peaceful location. Very positive experience and highly recommend!

Fantastic stay

We didn't get to spend to much time with Dan and Mary since we are traveling thru and stayed for one night but we enjoyed our stay. Our Google maps had their address in a different location but that's due to Google maps not the host so make sure you read all of the driving instructions. Other than that they are both very friendly and their older dog loved playing with Jag. It is also close to Kennebunkport and Portland so if you are in the area we highly recommend staying with them.

Redtail Retreat

We feel so lucky to have stumbled upon Redtail Retreat. D&M were so nice and accommodating. We were a little longer than their limit and they said they had room for us. We got there much later than expected and they treated us like old friends. If you get the chance to stay here, don’t pass it up. Some of the most genuinely nice people you’ll meet. Plus you might learn a thing or two, They are pretty handy.

A great place to boondock

Our Garmin was off on the address, but when we spotted the red tail sign we knew that we were at the right place. Our host greeted us and showed us where to park and invited us to enjoy the yard with a pool, garden and gazebo. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the gazebo. We appreciated being able to plug in to the 30 amp electric outlet. Our overnight stay was very peaceful and quiet in a lovely rural area. We would love to stay here again in the future.

Wonderful spot to stay

Dan and Mary were wonderful hosts for our first Boondocker visit. Easy spot to park and elec hook up. Dan was quick to respond and welcomed us when we arrived. Their place was close to the coast and easy to explore places. Thankfully they had a pool we could use as the temperature was in the high 90s. 😎
