Wonderful tranquility

Not only was this location wonderful but so were our hosts! We parked on a level pad with a perfect view of their large pond and grove of trees. So quiet, we did not hear any road noise during the night. The pond was a perfect spot for our morning walk as well as visiting their horses out back. Whynotam were a delight to talk to you, they filled us in on what was around and all the things their area has to offer. We even received delicious zebra striped tomatoes and cucumbers from their garden. Since the weather made us change our plans we were able to spend time at almost every location they suggested! Yes, you absolutely have to have the fried chicken at Yoders, and stop at the local stores around town. Each was well worth the visit. Since we are rescheduling our original plans for this fall, we will definitely be back to stay another time. Thank you!!!!!

Beautiful property and the hosts were very sweet. Left early in the morning due to allergies acting up for me so we missed chatting with them over coffee. Next time!!

Very cordial

We totally enjoyed our short stay with the

Wonderful Experience!

Whynotam are great hosts! They have a wonderful place for boondockers- Paradise, indeed! In our case, we were able to park on the concrete apron in front of their garage and, best of all, they provided us with a 50 amp hookup- no generator for our A/C! Whynotam are very congenial people and go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome. Check out A's hobbies- he's a busy guy!

Pay attention to his recommended directions to their home. If your brain-dead GPS system recommends any other exit off of I-57 other than Exit 203, ignore it! Take State Route 133- it's only 4 miles to their home off I-57.

Hope we have another opportunity to meet up with Whynotam in the future.

Great place to stay

We enjoyed meeting and visiting with this friendly couple. They had a great place to park our RV with a scenic pond and view of the sunset. We had a good visit on the front porch and they brought us a plate of cookies to enjoy during our evening there. A good place to stay.

Paradise Is No Exaggeration!

This was a wonderful stay. It provided a quiet, relaxing respite from driving and allowed me to plan my next month of travel in a peaceful, private setting, which truly is paradise, located in a beautiful part of the country. I am so appreciative of the warmth, and gracious generosity of my hosts. They were very accommodating and trusting as they shared a very precious property, their home. Of course the freshly cooked and personally delivered cinnamon rolls will never be forgotten.

The evening was enjoyable, with a pleasant breeze as the sun set. It was a moonlit and silent night in a serene setting, creating an excellent environment for a good nights sleep.

Morning was a precious time, getting up as soon as the sun began to turn the sky a brilliant red over the surrounding corn fields. I enjoyed morning coffee and those cinnamon rolls, from a five star location next to the pond, while listening to birds singing, fish feeding, frogs leaping from the shore, and an occasional glimpse of a turtle looking back at me from the pond.

This would be a delightful stop by anyones expectations. I hope my travels bring me back to this area again.
