5* Host Family - Full of Life & Joy

We loved our stay at Pfisterville. Nita was an amazing host, welcoming us to explore the grounds and making us feel like life long friends. The conversation flowed and we felt so relaxed. Nita and Gregs pups are the sweetest, even the goats wanted to greet us! We enjoyed every moment of our stay! They had great advice for us and helped us correct a minor issue we were having with our trailer - t drives much better! Thank you! We would love to stay again and meet up if your ever camping near by! All the best!

Sweet hosts on a beautiful property

We enjoyed a peaceful night in Pfisterville with a kind, easy-going couple.

They even moved the goats out of the big pasture so we could exercise our dogs off lead!

We’d stay with them again in a heartbeat. I’d actually like to chat with them a bit more - they seem like really fun people.

Wonderful Hosts & Serene Sweeping Views

We had a great stay, if only the rain and thunderstorms would have ended sooner than our last day! Gracious hosts made us feel comfortable from the start. Enjoyed meeting their daughter & super cute granddaughters. Of course, the 4 awesome dogs were a bonus & our dog Jake requests a return visit to get to know them better. We hope to return too when we can relax & share stories of our travels & all else. We highly recommend Pfisterville.

A Little Slice of Paradise!

This was our first Boondockers Welcome experience, and Pfisterville was the perfect place to begin. Our hosts were incredibly helpful and kind, and took the extra time to answer all our questions and provide helpful tips. We left feeling like we made a life-long friendship!

Well above and beyond any reasonable expectations!

Amazingly kind, gracious, and helpful hosts. I can't say enough to fully represent all of my appreciation for Pfisterville during my stay. =) In addition to personal appreciations, my dog also wants to extend his appreciation. He loved making new human friends and making friends with their four awesome dogs, who all let him join along in their playtime in the yard and the big fenced in pasture. He felt like just another member of their pack during our stay. =) I definitely hope I can return for another stay (and my dog requests it as well, HA).

Can't wait to go back!

We had a great visit to Pfisterville - first trip in our new (to us) travel trailer and first stay with Boondockers. Great hosts and the accommodations were perfect for our stay to visit family. Really appreciated the electric and water hookups, and their knowledge of the area was much appreciated. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful land!

I was able to stay at Pfisterville in the middle of a tropical storm. They live on top of a hill so no worries about flooding. It was unfortunate that they were also on vacation at the time so we didn’t get the chance to meet. Their communication was wonderful and I talked with Nita on the phone. What a friendly person!! She made sure that electric was available and I even text with their daughter to find a local restaurant for dinner! I highly recommend Pfisterville! You won’t be disappointed. I will definitely stay here again if my travels take me close!

Very Thankful

Ty and I stayed at Pfisterville a couple of weekends ago, and I can't stop thinking about it. The hosts were very welcoming, even though they were out on the road traveling! It was our first experience boondocking, and a very good one overall.

My favorite thing about the weekend was the open land. We had a lot of space to let the dogs run around, and felt very safe. There are goats there, and the dogs weren't really sure what they were. There's a little pond full of goldfish, and our dogs went swimming.

It was easy to set up the RV. There are hook ups for water and electric. We had access to a pavilion and fire pit, but the heat of the summer kept us from really enjoying it.

We'd love to visit again in the fall when it's cooler and the leaves begin to change color, and when the hosts are there. We did meet some of their family, and that was lovely.

Sha-ZAM That Was Awesome!

Thanks so much for a wonderfully peaceful short weekend on the way to our next stop. That could not have been any better. Exactly as described even with water and thankfully electric to cool down the 90 degree weekend. Fed the goats and ran our dog in the field til he dropped. We even got to go visit some downtown Frederick breweries. Wonderful stay and fantastic hosts. Thanks SO much!

Serene and sweeping views

Very accommodating hosts. 30A and water hookups offered which was very appreciated for A/C on a 90 degree day. Beautiful property that we were able to stroll around in the evening. Enjoyed meeting other members of the family, their dogs, and their friendly goats. We were also able to let our dogs run off leash in their large fenced pasture. We capped off the night on the swing in their nicely lit gazebo. Thanks Pfisterville for a great visit.

Goats & Frogs

What an unexpected great experience - we were offered more of a camping spot down by the pond! It was private and allowed us to have our own fire and for our girls to catch, fish, tadpoles and frogs 🐸 ! We got to hang with the goats 🐐 for some added fun! Our hosts were wonderful- offered lots of suggestions for places to see and where to eat. They were gracious enough to provide fire wood, a can opener and nets and a buckets for fishing! We can’t wait to visit again in the fall! The only downside was the heat - which Mother Nature is to blame!

Top quality host all the way around

To say that we enjoyed our stay with pfisterville would be an under statement. Their hospitality is top quality in every way I hope to see them again. They were quite welcoming upon our arrival and fit our rig comfortably. Happily I can day the train sound didn’t bother us even once We also picked blueberries together again another pleasant experience. We left as closer friends than some of our own family

Relaxing and Enjoyable

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Pfisterville. Wonderful location, fantastic hosts what more can you ask for. As a bonus the hosts shared their dogs and goats with us so much fun to be greeted with so much enthusiasm every time we returned. Locally we visited 2 breweries and took a couple of long rides in the country. We arrived as strangers and left as friends, we hope to see you again soon. Thanks so much for your hospitality.

Beautiful location - wish we had more time

Amazing - everything about this location was great. The hosts have a beautiful location and were very accommodating to us and our dog. We were welcomed and even sat around the campfire chatting. Now we just need to figure out another time to make it down for a longer visit.

Comforting Stop During Covid

I was on my way home from Virginia to New York during the Covid-19 lock down when I reached out to Pfisterville for a place to sleep. They were very understanding and accommodating. Beautiful property, quiet location. Even with social distancing, they were very hospitable and welcoming. Would stay here again.

Pfisterville gave us an incredibly warm welcome for our inaugural Boondockers experience! Their site is lovely, peaceful and easy to get to. The area is full of historical sites and pastoral drives through the countryside. We highly recommend Pfisterville

An Enjoyable Stay!

Our hosts made us feel so incredibly welcome. They have a beautiful property which is quiet and peaceful. You can visit the goats, play with their friendly dogs and walk down to the frog pond. We shared a wonderful fire and talked while watching the moon rise. It was a great time and we would love to come back again.

Welcoming hosts on 2 legs and 4

Great spot in beautiful countryside of farms and rolling hills. Hosts are gracious and kind. Parking spot is level. 4 legged friends double the welcome.

We stayed during the Covid Pandemic and a rainy day. Did not get to spend much time with our hosts. They went out of their way to make us welcome.

Beautiful spot

This was a beautiful place to stay, lovely views and cute goats in the back to visit. Hosts were very friendly and came right out to greet me and get me hooked up to electric. Parking was on concrete but a bit unlevel. They offered me boards to place under my tires but I used my leveling blocks. It was very quiet and peaceful. I very much enjoyed my visit and really appreciated being able to stay as I was traveling to family in NY during the lockdown.

Wonderful experience

This was our most wonderful stay at any Boondockers Welcome host. Greg and Nita are wonderful hosts. Their property is beautiful with goats that you can pet. They have 4 dogs that are extremely friendly. They came every morning to our motorhome to call on our dog to come out and play. Definitely a must if you are in the area.

Friendly Hosts

We arrived just before dark and our hosts met us, while maintaining social distancing, and helped us settle in for the night. What a beautiful location. We wish we had more time to spend there and get to know our hosts. We are very grateful that they accepted our stay request in this difficult time. We could tell they wished they could be more social, but we all respected the social distancing suggestions. We highly recommend this location and great hosts.

Super Hosts

Scenic location and wonderful hosts. We were on our way home from Florida with the covid 19 situation and were so grateful to have a safe spot to stay for the night. Our hosts would have liked to be social and give us a hug, but couldn't , under the circumstances, but we felt very welcome. We highly recommend this beautiful site.

Good to See Them Again

We had met this couple at another boondockers location in Defuniak Springs.it was great to stay here at this fabulous location. There is great hiking in the area and are close to Harper's Ferry. They made us feel very comfortable and we recommend staying here if you are in the area. We look forward to coming back another time.

My second stay

The water and electricity and board to level were all there waiting for me. I was greeted and checked on without it being intrusive ... and when I mentioned problems finding places to stay that were open this time of year, I was offered ideas I hadn't thought of. I appreciated their experience ... and their wonderful piece of property with a great view of the moon.

Wonderful Host and Location

Our whole family from adults to kids to our dogs thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pfistervile.
An easy access location in the beautiful Maryland countryside with plenty of things to do nearby. Their paved sheltered RV spot next to the barn was a perfect resting spot for 2 nights.
Our hosts were very helpful and it was great getting to know them. We had fun meeting their goats and their sweet granddaughters and our dogs had a blast playing with their dogs and romping in the large fenced in area. (Thank you to the goats and sheep for giving up their larger pasture for two days). 😊
Hopefully we will get to return when we are in the area again and maybe we can meet up in our travels in warmer climates over the winter. Thank you

First, I would like to apologise for the delayed review. We had family stuff going on and hadn't been online.

Second, we would like to express our gratitude for being an amazing BW host. We also enjoyed exploring the area. Thank you for everything!

Helpful! Peaceful!

Still a newbie and got expert help backing up and leveling the bus (something I've never done before). The water and electricity were just what I needed. They were available if I needed them. I benefitted from their experience.

Excellent location and Amazing hosts!

Our very first experience with Boondocking and it was a Fabulous one ! This place is awesome, peaceful quiet and hosts are beyond amazing! We arrived it was dark due to the time of year, they helped us set up to ensure we are all ok, we had water, electricity as needed. Their dogs and our dog bonded right away. We could text them if we had any issues during the night. Got to visit their goats in the morning, and chat! We definitely recommend this place ,would come back again for sure as this was to short of a stay, only overnight! They provided us with good directions to continue our trip. We made new friends and hope we can have them for a visit one day! Thank you so much from the bottom of our heart!

This was a great place to stay. It was easy to park our 5th wheel. They had water and 30 amp electric available. The property was beautiful. But what meant such a great deal to us was how friendly the hosts were! They made us feel very welcome and now we feel we have new friends! This was a real blessing to us. Thank you, Pfisterville!

By the way - not just the host, also the place is perfect for boondocking. We went for a hike to the near mountain park, also Gettysburg is not far.
Safe travels - see you in Texas!

Absolutely Perfect Stay!

I wish we could have stayed longer! Our hosts were extremely accommodating and very social. We spent lots of time chatting with them and enjoying the company of their 4 super friendly dogs and goats. The spot next to the barn is wonderful because it's shaded from the sun all afternoon, so we didn't even need the AC. Located less than 30 minutes from Gettysburg. This was such a peaceful place, just what we needed on our travels. I highly recommend stopping here if you like good company and a relaxing location. Thank you so much!

Great Couple, Beautiful Location

Staying with the Pfisters was an absolute pleasure. N is a good communicator and we texted back and forth as we made our way, on back roads, to their house. We visited and shared experiences the next morning (Saturday) and got some great tips about visiting Gettysburg. I just wish we had the energy to follow all their advice, which included the best places for Ice Cream and dinner.
G&N, when you get on the road... come and visit us in California!

Over the top Hosts and place to stay

The hosts have spent a lot of time in creating a super place for RVs to stay and they are wonderful people to visit with. We enjoyed the mornings from The pavilion which is an excellent view of all around. We got to visit with the goats, enjoyed the birds singing and the frogs croaking down by the pond. We spent two pack full days in Washington DC and the commute down there was a breeze.

Wonderful couple and beautiful site!

I stayed in Pfisterville for a long weekend and it was a peaceful, blessed time. They have a paved area in front of the barn to accommodate the trailer that was perfect. Their nice dogs came around and my standard poodle had a blast with them. They were gracious with me and my puppy and it was truly a quiet time well spent away from home.

The perfect stay

We've only ever met nice people through our boondockers stays, but the Pfisters take the cake. They went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of at their site, but also made sure we knew of the best things to do in the area and shared meals with us. As for the site itself, beautiful rural setting, lots to do in the area including Gettysburg. Easy to get to and 4 adorable dogs to play with 😍 and goats!

We can't say enough about how great our stay was. Happy to know we have a wonderful place to return to when we get back to Maryland!

Great spot near Gettysburg

While I wasn’t able to meet the actual hosts of the property, their daughter was very helpful.

The property was beautiful, with plenty of space for my dogs to run around. Electric, water and WiFi. Can’t ask for more!

Would highly recommend a stop here if you’re looking to explore Gettysburg.

Thanks again!

Beautiful spot

We had a very quick overnight stay on this beautiful land. They had the best communication, making sure we were aware of traffic and weather. They helped us ease into our spot and we LOVED their fenced in area to let our dogs run, explore and play with their dogs. We hope we can come back and spend more time getting to know these generous, kind people!

Good communication and quick responses to our texts. Directions for arrival excellent and we were met by the host who assisted with our getting settled. We had some friendly chats and toured their RV. Nice unit. Our stay was quick as we left before daylight, yet it was very pleasurable. Nice family, friendly dogs and all are invited "Down to the beach". We really look forward to hosting them on their trips thru. Leslie & Scott.

Great spot with very nice hosts!

This was our first boondockers welcome stay, and it was a great introduction to what it is all about! They were so helpful and responsive even though we contacted them last minute after not being able to find a spot in the campgrounds nearby.

They provided us with a great spot to spend the night, and good conversation about travel, Alaska, vintage RVs, and more :)

Great hosts. Nice location.

Very nice couple. We had a great time with them. Chatted on their beautiful patio for hours. Played with the goats and loved being in such an expansive, lush area with so much room. They helped us solve some leak issues and offered us every tool to do the job. Can’t say enough nice things about this lovely ciuple and their sweet daughter. The perfect Boondockers Welcome experience!!

Very lovely family

The host couple and their children and grandchildren are just wonderful. They were most welcoming and guided us into our spot near their barn.
They have 2 dogs and a grand dog (that they’re watching while their son is on his honeymoon) and lovely goats and a baby doll sheep.
They invited us up to the patio to chat and we stayed up past all of our bedtimes!!!
There is a really nice gazebo that you can sit in a hanging swing and watch the goats.
We will definitely return in the future, when we’re in the area.
