Wonderful Host

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to enjoy the trails behind the house. But we loved visiting with the critters.

Wonderful host!!

This is a wonderful location very convenient to access. Plenty of space for our 30 foot travel trailer and Tow vehicle. Such a nice post that we enjoyed chatting with and her beautiful views on her property.

I hope so so incredibly helpful and we would definitely want to visit again.

First boondocker experience

So since this was our first experience, we were nervous. We are so pleased that it was a positive one. Our host was so sweet and hospitable and she had cute little chickens running around. Parking was easy and accommodating. I wish these people nothing but the best.

The town itself is quaint and people are friendly. My boyfriend got us food at the cafe down the street and it was great. My only advice is to make sure you have a meal planned out as things close early but I actually enjoy towns like that.

What a tremendously wonderful host!

Wyandotterescue met us on arrival and we enjoyed conversation and it is clear that this host is not only good-hearted and friendly, but also very capable and self sufficient. We are so thankful that Wyandotterescue texted us google maps directions to get there via a route that they appreciate and thought we would also... and we may not been able to find our way there otherwise, ha ha! Not that difficult a route but we aren't know for our senses of direction. What a beautiful location, wonderful property with a dog (and a visiting dog too) that is protective of the chickens, and plans for turkeys, goats, and who knows what else. Reminded both of us of our childhoods! We didn't have any T-Mobile signal but Wyandotterescue allowed us wifi use so we could make plans for our next stop; so much appreciated! You can bet that if we get into this area again we will stay here, hopefully for a little longer!

Nice country setting

Really enjoyed our short visit with Wyandotterescue and her lovely dog Bailey. Really appreciate her welcoming us on short notice. She is working hard on establishing a great property for her love of butterflies. Easy access just off county hwy with plenty of space to park. Even thou we only stayed for a short overnight-er she was very accommodating..

Peace and Tranquility @ Goldfinch Ranch

Peace and tranquility is what you will find at Goldfinch Ranch. What a wonderful hostess. We instantly fell in love with Goldfinch Ranch. Her dog Baily is a real charmer and entertainer. We enjoyed the conversations we had together. Was very enjoyable to sit out in the evenings and watch Mom and Pop bluebird feeding their young. Then after sunset watch the fireflies come out. Caught a few and showed them to grandchildren thru video chat.

This is the place to come and relax. Would and will come back and stay again. Thanks for the great time, give Baily a hug from us.

Marie was vary nice and had a good visit with her on our arrival. She was very accommodating. Thank you so much


March 2019

Nice and quiet

Marie is great. She welcomed us then left us to our own. The place is nice with tons of bird life. I was there mid March and had frist every morning. The air was so crisp and clear the sun seemed to turbo charge my solar panels.

Great Stay in Beautiful Eastern Tennessee

We enjoyed our stay at Goldfinch Ranch. Our host was gracious and friendly and offered to give us whatever we needed to be comfortable.

The location is quiet and there's lots of room for larger rigs. There are many small towns nearby and great hiking and scenery at Savage Gulf.

Thank you for hosting us!

Cute property, nice host!

This location was great- nicely wooded property with wildlife, no neighbors around, and near some great hiking spots. The host is very nice and helpful, and offers water and electric (small fee, but so worth it!) She also has a map of the area and pointed out local hikes and points of interest! Would definitely recommend if you're passing through the area.
