Plenty to do. We are not very far from the coast, Maine’s largest city (66,000 pop.) and smaller towns with great seafood restaurants along the coast.
It was such a pleasure to stay at H+A's place. They're on a dead end road in a comfortable location. i had the chance to speak with both of them and felt very invited. thanks for your presence!
We had a very nice stay on our last day in Maine! We even got some advice from a firefighter on safety with our little wood stove. We didn't get to talk to them too much, but they were very welcoming and kind. Thanks for having us!
I really loved my time here and the conversations I got to share with the hosts. They were both kind and hospitable. I also had easy access to electric and water. Thanks again H&A for a wonderful stay.
We had a wonderful stay and had the opportunity to visit the coast. Our hosts were absolutely wonderful and helpful. Thank you!!
H and A were wonderful hosts! When I arrived, it was starting to rain. The host came out to help me hook up my electric for the night. Maine is Beautiful offered a perfect spot next to their garage in a wonderfully quiet neighborhood.
The morning after my second night, I was able to sit on the back porch, sipping coffee and talking about life and adventures with A. I felt like I had just reconnected with a longtime friend! I certainly hope I see these two again! I’d love to continue our great conversation!
Sadly didn't get to meet our hosts but so appreciated the setting in their heautiful private yard. It was very warm so the 50 amp electric service was welcome. Highly recommend for a quiet private restful stay while in the greater Portland area. For us a perfect location for visiting relatives in the area.
Very thoughtful and pleasant hosts. Easy access to quiet, level site. After a very long day we were were looking forward to a restful night and we found it at Maine is Beautiful.
H and his wife are amazing! The location is great and they are so friendly! I really enjoyed my stay!
Nice level parking spot with shade. Upon arrival H came right out to show us where to park and get set up. Our second night there, we enjoyed visiting with A on their back deck. Would definitely stay again if traveling through the area. Thank you for hosting us!
Maine is certainly beautiful, from the great outdoors to the kindness of our hosts.
The forest is so different from what we have in CA and was a peaceful place to stay.
We are grateful and would recommend Beautiful Maine wholeheartedly.
What a beautiful and peaceful stay we had at Maine is Beautiful hosted by the Stoddards. The electric plug-in was much appreciated and used because of the heat wave the northeast was having. Harold and his lovely wife were so welcoming and we enjoyed talking with them. Spent a comfortable and quiet night.
Hosts were very friendly and welcoming, sadly, our schedules didn't match up and didn't have a chance to spend time with them. Location is only a 20 min drive to downtown Portland which was very convenient for dinner!
These hosts are great and we so appreciated being able to stay with them! From the minute we pulled up to time we left their driveway we felt at home. The spot where we parked in was level and shaded. We were grateful for the power and the very quiet and peaceful setting. Anyone wondering, Verizon works well here. We got to enjoy sitting on their back deck surrounded by beautiful gardens getting to know them. They have a lot of good information to share. This location has so many things to do. Portland is not very far and we love to bike and hike, we got to enjoy 3 different bike paths while we were there. Locally there are great dog friendly hikes/parks as well, oh and we do have to say we love Pria their playful golden doodle too! We hope to come back someday and we truly hope these host stay with us one day, we would love to chat more about future adventures.
H&A are wonderful hosts, staying with them is always a great pleasure! Thank you!!
The hosts had a very busy week scheduled but were gracious enough to allow us to stay with them. Nice, quiet neighborhood and we had no trouble reaching our sightseeing destinations in Portland and Freeport. Our only regret is that we didn't get to meet the doodle!
Great time at the Maine is Beautiful BW. Nice space to park next to their garage. Hosts were very welcoming and made sure we were all taken care of. They have a fun golden doodle who became best friends with our dood right off the bat. Thanks for letting the pups run around the yard. Quiet night sleep, thanks for the stay!
Yet again I'm blown away at the kindness and generosity of a BW host.
H+A are such wonderful people and I loved my stay with them.
H and I hung out on the deck and talked fir a while and his stories of a good life lived in beautiful Maine are worth hearing about fir sure.
I couldn't recommend this host enough. One thousand thumbs up!
A perfect location to explore Portland and the area. A very nice level place to park. Host was very accommodating and good communication. The weather turned a little bad and high winds delayed my departure and the host was gracious enough to let me stay another night. Another great Welcome Boondockers experience.
This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and we weren't sure what to expect. We found the site easily and backed into our spot in the driveway. The hosts came home a little later and H hooked us up with some power. We had a nice talk with A and settled in for the night. Our stay was only one night, but it was a perfect stay.
H &A were fabulous hosts. They were helpful from start to finish, setting up, ideas for things to do, ability to plug in and use water. This is close proximity to Portland and sightseeing. Thanks so much!
A great spot about 15 min outside of Portland. Our hosts were very helpful from start to finish. H offered help setting up, offered info on the area and ideas on places to visit. We appreciated being able to plug in as the nights got a bit chilly.
Great place to stay the night. Overnight temps got into the 30's but the host offered power which was greatly appreciated. Also enjoyed visiting over a nice bowl of soup and a beer.
We were greeted and guided to a great level spot in the driveway. We had a great peaceful 2 night stay in a wooded neighborhood setting. Close to town, beaches, and many areas of Maine to visit yet staying with no traffic noise. We would love to return and spend more time with H & A, as they were not home much on our days this time. We hope our paths cross in our travels.
We had a very nice two night stay with H & A. We enjoyed meeting you and chatting on the deck in your beautiful yard. Playing with your pup was also fun! Thanks again.
We stayed with H+AStoddard for a couple of nights and really loved their little space. It was nice and level, very quiet, and they were kind enough to offer us electricity and wifi. The neighborhood was very pretty, and was nice to walk our dogs. Plus, we enjoyed talking with them and meeting their super adorable dog! We hope they will come see us when we get set up with our own space.
Thank you for accepting my request and allowing electricity for a late night movie. I learned a lot with one stay. Appreciated your hospitality. Maine is beautiful, hope to explore more of it soon. Maybe next time I'll bring my Motorcycle if it is allowed on those trails your making?
The hosts made me and my pup feel very welcome, really enjoyed my time with them. Hopefully we’ll keep in touch
H&A proove that Maine is truly beautiful, not just the scenery but the people, especially the people. Thank you for another wonderful stay, we deeply appreciate your loving hospitality. May the kindness you've shown us come back to you in the future.
Harold was there to meet us on our arrival and was very helpful and inviting. Showed us where to park. Nice spot just off to the side of his garage. Very quiet and safe. Harold was a great host. Thanks Harold..
There is a saying, "the 3rd time is the charm". In this case, the 1st time was the charm. This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay. We didn't know quite what to expect. We were blown away by H. and A's hospitality. Upon arrival, H. dropped what he was doing to help us park and get hooked up, even providing pads to use. Not wanting to be too intrusive, we didn't pull out our mat or extra step. After recommendations from them, we husselled out to sightsee before dark. Upon arrival back at their place, we noticed that they had literally put out a huge "welcome mat" and extra step for us. They blew us away with their kindness and generosity. We enjoyed 2 evenings of laughs and beverages out on their patio. We now have 2 new friends. Many thanks, H. and A., for a wonderful stay!
H&AStoddard provided a bucolic spot in an ideal location in Maine. We rented a car and with their recommendations, traveled north and south to enjoy the ocean, lobster and special areas. They generously offered water and electric hookups, and the soul of their welcoming dog! Unfortunately our old girls were into sleeping most of the time. Our sincere thanks to these hosts!
A wonderful, friendly, welcoming couple. Their space was level and easy for our 25ft motorhome to turn around and fit into. A quiet, rural neighborhood with lots of trees and no traffic yet close to Portland and Freeport. We enjoyed visiting many spots and sights in Maine and would be pleased to stay here again and spend more time with our hosts. I hope to cross paths when we're both in AZ.
H+A's place is a great place and they are very accommodating. Space was perfect for our rig and although we only stayed a night when we had planned three it was the perfect stop along our journey.
H+A are two of the most incredibly wonderful folks. Our stay could not have been any better. We loved our parking spot, talking with our hosts and seeing some sights. We honestly were made to feel like family and we are grateful for their kindness and generosity. We miss them and their dog already.
We had a wonderful stay at the Stoddard's. We just can't say enough about the warm and helpful reception they offered. Thank you so much for all you shared with us!! May all you shared with us help bring you wonderful RVing experiences in the future. Thank you again!
Great stop for us westerners! Enjoyed meeting our hosts and learning more about Maine and the local area. A priviledge to stay and visit such fine folks!!!
H+A were so welcoming. We pulled in as we were passing through and had a wonderful nights rest. They were a blessing. Pria was a doll :)
The Host was very welcoming. The spot was level and nice. Very quiet area. Had a great time sitting on the back porch talking about anything and everything. Very nice down to earth people! Would absolutely stay again.
Short one night stay and A&H were very hospitable. After the trying day of driving with a flat on our trailor their home was a welcome site. A, thanks for the glass of wine... just what I needed. . H, thanks for your patience parking me. Would highly recommend this quiet oasis and the great hosts. We hope to stay again.
We had a great stay, the host was kind enough to help us turn and back into the spot and then allowed us to hook up to their electric. This was a perfect spot in a cute little town just outside of Portland. We enjoyed our day trips into the Portland area. Great hosts!
We had a great stay at this location. The host was very welcoming when we arrived and was great to talk with. We ventured into Portland for a day and it was very nice to be so close to the city but far enough out in a neighborhood where it was quiet. Thanks again for being part of BW.
Convenient location in quiet neighborhood. Easy back in. Great Host. Small world, turns out we crossed paths in Tucson 2 yrs ago! Enjoyed sharing dinner on deck and picking blueberries for Muffins.
Very gracious host! We really enjoyed talking with H+AStoddard about all things Maine, hunting, moose, downtown Portland and so on!! Our Labradoodles enjoyed playing with each and we really enjoyed our stay. Our mail delivery was pushed back and we were invited to stay longer if needed. Thank you So Much!!!!
Outstanding hosts. H and A are wonderful down to earth Mainers. Wealth if info about the area. Thanks
This is a great location to Portland. Very nice Host. Beautiful property. A great place to stay.
We had a such a wonderful stay out in Maine with the Stoddards. They made our first day & visit to Maine unforgettable. They had a wonderful property with wild berries & great hookups. We had some great conversations out on their deck overlooking their yard. I had a lot of work to catch up with, & Harold was gracious enough to let me connect to their Wi-Fi. So grateful for everything, & we would love to see them again in the future!
Lovely! Great hosts, very welcoming. We shared wine on their porch and had some great conversations. This was a special boondockers stay for me! Thank you, thank you to the hosts!!
An awesome location of out of the city, but not a far drive to explore the area. Beautiful farmer's markets and outdoor fun close by! The hosts are amazing. We even had a BBQ with them the last evening and enjoyed their company and conversation. Thank you both for making our BW experience golden!
H & A are wonderful hosts. Both warmly welcomed us and helped us get set up. We quickly discovered how much we have in common and enjoyed our conversations. The location is beautiful, we enjoyed the closeness to Portland, one of our favorite locations in Maine. Wish we could have stayed longer, we will keep in touch and catch up on the road.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The Stoddards were very friendly and helpful and offered many suggestions for activities in Maine. Our two dogs loved playing in the yard with their dog, Pria, who came to our door a few times to say hi! At nighttime, the lightning bugs in the field adjacent to the property were a joy to watch. Yarmouth is a nice, quiet town perfect for relaxing yet not too far from Portland if you want to visit the city as well. We would absolutely stay with the Stoddards again! :)
These two were so nice to us, words can't say enough. Very friendly and fun. I felt like they were family when we left their site. You couldn't ask for better hosts. I will miss them.
This couple were the best people you'd ever meet. They went out of the way to be great hosts. And instantly became good friends. I wish I'd of posted this earlier but I was new to this. They are great people and perfect hosts.
Highly recommend, great location, quiet and great hosts!
H&A were wonderful. Once we arrived, They offered electric along with water hook ups. After my husband and I got back from dinner we sat with them on their back deck and talked until after midnight. Thank you for the experience, this was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and very thankful.
These are the very best people you will ever meet. They are very knowledgeable about Maine and rv's. We felt like we were leaving family when we left. I truly didn't want to go. But off we went.
