Paulbrenda we’re wonderful hosts. They welcomed us with they’re beautiful yard cozy porch and wonderful friendship. They also guided us along a 30 mile rails to trails area in the Willamette Valley.

Perfect End to Our VaCa

These Hosts were so amazing!

We were on our way home from Vacation and needed a place to rest for the night.

PaulBrenda could not be more perfect as host’s. We visited for hours, what a wonderful night.

The gift of vegetables were so wonderful.

Hope we can stop again!

Thank You both for your warm welcome.

Perfect place under fir trees

Our first stay with BW couldn't have been more pleasant! PaulBrenda were so welcoming and we had a wonderful chat when we arrived. It's the kind of people you feel an instant connection with. The host unexpectedly treated us with a bag of veggies from her garden, which we'll enjoy so much tonight. The place was perfect, too, surrounded by beautiful fir trees.


July 2021

Great Place!

I stayed here two nights and it was a great experience overall. It was a nice level spot for the trailer and easy to get into as well. It's a big property in a quiet neighborhood and the host was incredibly kind and friendly. I'd love to come back some time.


July 2021

A very nice time for us

This was our first experience with boondockers welcome. We did not know what to expect. The hosts made contact with us and made sure we knew where to go. Paul greeted us on arrival and we ask if evening visiting with the hosts was ok and got the ok for that. The hosts were a very lovely couple. We definitely enjoy meeting people and learning about them and the area. Thank you Boondockers welcome for making it possible to meet new people and have nice places to park our RV.


June 2021

Quiet oasis

Paul Brenda were such amazing hosts. We had a lovely stay at their home. They have a beautiful property with lots of fir trees and a level area for the trailer. We really enjoyed our conversation with them and wish we could have talked more. They were such wonderful hosts I would highly recommend staying with them. They enjoy hosting and couldn’t have been any nicer!!


June 2021

Friendly People

Set near Eugene and close to the I-5, my stay was short but very accomadating. Situated in a level gravel pathway. I enjoyed talking to the hosts about the local land and current events, as well as playing catch with their tireless dog, Cin.


May 2021


I had a wonderful stay. The site is off the highway and it was quiet at night. The hosts invited me over for an after dinner chat on the patio, which I really enjoyed.


May 2021

Beautiful and quiet

Lovely stay with kind and generous hosts. It was wonderful to chat and play with the beautiful dog. I am looking forward to returning.

Paul and Branda were very nice and made me feel welcomed. I had some nice talks with Paul about electrical systems. He's very knowledgeable, The site is very quiet and nicely shaded under some large trees, feels cozy. Thank you for an enjoyable visit!!

Wonderful Hosts

2nd time stayng with P & B. Gracious hosts and a beautiful park-like setting. The 4 of us sat around their campfire patio on a gorgeous night sharing a bottle of wine and telling stories. It's what Boondocking is all about!


November 2020

Easy and comfortable

Paul and Brenda are very nice. The neighborhood is beautiful and super quiet! It was very peaceful.


October 2020

Wonderful stay

Accommodated us on short notice parking in front of his garage with 15 amp power. Quiet, well-kept property. A perfect spot when traveling I-5 for a peaceful night's stay.


September 2020

Great location and great host

We really liked this host and location. It was so close to I-5. We had a great time talking with our hosts. If you are in the area consider staying here. We highly recommend this host.


September 2020

Absolute Pleasure

Staying with Paul and Brenda could not have been better. Loved Linda’s laughter and Paul’s humor. Always there if I needed something, gifted me with fresh vegetables, welcomed my dog, visited with me and Paul entertained me by playing a few games of cribbage. Stay with these wonderful people. You will not regret it. Good location, quiet location with good neighborhood to walk your dog.


August 2020

So Much to Love

We had a hard time driving away from this one. Such a warm welcome, effortless conversation, friendly pets and comfortable space - just not enough time spent here. P+B will see us again...maybe as neighbors?! Thank you for everything!


July 2020

Beautiful home

Enjoyed visiting sitting outside around the fire pit with the hosts, beautiful area beautiful home. Beautiful dog and cat.


June 2020

Wonderful people, wonderful stay!

Our 2 night stay with PaulBrenda was quite a treat. These hosts are genuine and truly the kindest people! PaulBrenda met us on arrival and helped us back into their driveway. No problem with a 37 ft fifth wheel. PaulBrenda gave us a great suggestion on where to take our paddle boards out. Eugene was a quick 15 minute drive and you have many options of where you can enjoy water activities. When we come back down the west coast, we would most certainly visit with this BW host again! Five stars, all around.


November 2019

The best!

This was our first experience & it was awesome! Short lived really! We would have loved to stay longer! PaulBrenda are amazing humans with some great stories to tell! We would love to come back!


November 2019

Wonderful hosts!

Paul and Brenda have a beautiful home in the countryside. Paul expertly guided me into his driveway, for which I am very thankful because I’m a real klutz at backing up my travel trailer. (I would have spent at least one hour doing so on my own.)
I enjoyed meeting and petting two nice dogs there: Sydney belongs to Paul and Brenda, and Cubby belongs to one of their relatives. Both dogs barked only once when I arrived, so they are well behaved and very friendly.
In the evening Paul invited me over to his cozy home for a chat. I met his friendly wife Brenda, and together the three of us talked a lot about their pets and our travels. A most enjoyable evening, and one of the very best features of Boondockers Welcome: telling travel stories.
I hope to stay here again because Paul and Brenda are super hosts, and it’s sooooo relaxing there!

A warm welcome for this Australian couple

We enjoyed our stay with PaulBrenda. The location was peaceful amongst the Douglas firs. Sitting out until after night fall with our hosts we discussed our different cultures and travel experiences
Thanks for the fruit

Great location with great people.

We enjoyed our conversation and our overnight visit. We would like to come back and play cribbage. Your place is beautiful, shady and quiet.


August 2019

Excellent hosts!

Paul and Brenda are wonderful hosts with a lovely, tranquil site conveniently located to I 5, yet in a rural, tree shaded location. A perfect spot to spend a day or two relaxing with new friends!


July 2019

Lovely spot

We stayed one night. Level spot with easy access. Very hospitable hosts with a friendly dog, we enjoyed our stay in scenic quiet surroundings.

Great restful stay.

Great easy place to go. Lovely hosts. Spent two peaceful nights and enjoyed the area. Try out the Creswell Bakery if you have the time.


June 2019

Great stay with friendly hosts

The stay was great and a perfect stopover as we traveled south from Portland. Lovely conversation on the porch with the hosts before having a nice quiet night catching up on work and a great nights sleep.


June 2019

Amazing Location & Awesome Hosts

We have hosted hundreds of boondockers, but this was our first time being guests and boondocking at someone's property and we are just overwhelmed with gratitude. Paul and Brenda are lovely and we had the best time chatting with them! Their property is gorgeous and so quiet; we had a wonderful night's sleep for the first time in a long while. I hope we catch up with them down the road again someday! They are super close to the freeway and their spot is level and gorgeous!


June 2019

A great jumping off spot for Eugene!

Our stay at Our Home When not Away From Home was great. The location that we parked was flat and spacious with big trees. It was quiet. We hooked up to electricity and grilled out. The hosts could not have been nicer and we really enjoyed their company. We sat in their back yard and chatted in the evening. We would definitely go there again.


May 2019
