What a treat. Superb hosts. Nice location, very gracious, lots of interesting stories. We connected immediately and want to keep in touch in future travels. Highly recommend this stay when in the NC coastal area.

Excellent host & location

Tipper & Patti were great hosts, very accommodating and their location is really convenient for the town of Beaufort, just a few blocks walk to the waterfront. Sadly the weather cut short our stay but wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

We simply love these folks.

Really Great People

It was a quick and short stay of one night. Met with Tipper and Patti... great people to talk to and very accommodating. My only regret... is that we didn't have time to share stories... There will be a next time I am sure and looking forward of actually sitting around and talking. They have a dog that is so friendly and a couple of kittens running around. Close to the downtown which we love and because of them we got to spend a couple of hours there before bedding down and splitting in the morning. Thanks so much to these two...

Dean and Percilla.

Thank you so much !

Good to see you again, albeit a little cooler than usual ! (First time i've ever seen Tipper don a coat !) You know we love to walk and bike Beaufort, and stop by Clyde Phillips for seafood. We did it all, thanks to you and your'e wonderful boondock ! All the best, hope to see you soon.

Excellent host and location!

I enjoyed every minute of my stay with Tipper, his location is absolutely wonderful. He has a beautiful piece of property with a large gravel pad in the back. They are also just two blocks from the waterfront and the town of Beaufort is so fun to walk around!
Tipper himself is a very fascinating person and so easy to talk to! I really enjoyed getting to know him, he is very kind. Thank you Tipper for the hospitality, it was great meeting you! Hope to meet up again.

Excellent Host with Great Recommendations

We stayed with Tipper and his wife for only one night, but received a very warm welcome and great recommendations as we travel south. He even contacted a personal friend of his outside of Boondockers and set us up with him for a few nights in one of our future destinations. Extremely helpful and truly above and beyond. (And the cutest pup in all of Beaufort.)
Can't thank you guys enough!

Go there!!

At your own risk.... You might leave with more travel ideas and inspiration than ever. The welcome was warm and the couple was fantastic. TipperD is without a doubt a very interesting person. We loved our stay here.
Beaufort is a charming city on the shore surrounded by great activities.

Cricky Mate! ... such an interesting couple

We stayed with TipperD and his wife a few days ago and have been trying to find the right words to describe them. They were wonderful and very interesting hosts, even after working all day she was happy spending time with us exchanging travel stories. Tipper's achievements in maintaining and restoring historic buildings is amazing. Sadly, we are slowly loosing tradesmen with the knowledge Tipper has accumulated over his lifetime.
Also, thank you for sharing your lovely friends with us. Highly recommended.

Wonderful People, Beautiful Town

We consider ourselves so lucky to have spent time with TipperD and can't wait to see them again. They are incredible hosts, had the perfect parking for our truck camper, and made us feel like locals in beautiful, historical Beaufort, NC. Highly recommended.

We can not say enough about TipperD. They were wonderful hosts and the town is just lovely. So much to do We even saw wild horses on Rachel Carson wildlife preserve The maritime museum and historic buildings as well as the well maintained historic homes throughout the town were great . This town and our hosts were North Carolina gems.
