Description

We live on five wooded acres on a neighborhood grass airstrip. We have easy access to all that the Nashville area has to offer, while enjoying the quietness of a rural setting.

House Rules

No smoking on property at all.
Pets can be off leash under your supervision as our property is not fenced and dogs cannot be unsupervised on the runway.

Access Road Conditions

The short shared driveway that accesses our property is very narrow. Our driveway is also narrow in places and turnaround can be challenging. Check with us if you aren’t sure your rig would work here.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Trailer, 20 ft, class A or B 30 ft. Turn around and maneuverability can be an issue for longer trailers.
A tow vehicle would need to be unhitched for the same reason.
For longer towing rigs it might be necessary to reverse down our 300’ driveway (not a straight shot)

We come and go quite often, often without a plan, but give us a try. We are aiming to be somewhere warmer every January and February, and somewhere cooler every July-September, but there are always a lot of variables. It is also possible that you could boondock whether or not we are home.

Wonderful stay with the Fraybirds

We enjoyed meeting Jerry and Margot and we had a wonderful stay at their place. Everything was ready and perfect for us and we had a peaceful, quiet night on their lovely property. Thanks Fraybirds!

Beautiful, welcoming retreat

Hosts accepted our last minute request on a holiday weekend even though they had family visiting from across the state and country. We were welcomed to join the family for a wonderful evening on their scenic outdoor deck. Enjoyed every minute getting to know this kind and gracious family, including Ruby and Coda.

Wonderful location

Arrived as host was going to dinner with their daughters. They had a surprise visit from one living out west. Quiet evening with dinner by firepit. Next morning we had a short visit and realized we'd traveled some of the same places and of course talked rigs.

Excellent

This is our first BW visit and we are super happy with our choice to stop here.
Jerry and Margot are very accommodating and made us feel at home right away.
We are loving our visit and have much in common.
Hoping we will have a chance to show them the PNW and San Juan Islands area and planning on returning next year when we travel through here again if at all possible.
Thank you for your hospitality.

You will not be disappointed and will enjoy your stay for sure.

Epitome of Southern Hospitality

This was our very first BW stay and I'm so glad it was with the Fraybirds! They met us with their dog upon arrival and I was immediately set at ease by how genuinely nice they were. They made sure we were able to get set up and told us to make ourselves at home (and I believe they truly meant that). My only regret was that we didn't get to spend more time talking with them! We would return in a skinny minute if the opportunity arose again!

These hosts are the best of the best!

I had so much fun staying at this stop. They are great people and so hospitable. Their dogs are great too and my dog enjoyed making new friends too. They had everything you could possibly need overnight as far as hookups but I didn’t use because it wasn’t hot enough to need power for AC. I would stay again. Hands down some of the best hosts I’ve ever met!

Wonderful hosts!!

The Fraybirds are wonderful, warm and friendly hosts. They were very helpful, and wise about their boondocking spot, having us park and walk to the site before pulling our RV down the last section of their drive. It all worked out fine, as we were able to turn our rig around (23 ft TT with truck), but anything larger, or with a toad would not work. Also, with all the rain Tennessee has had, the trees are very full, and width is also a consideration transiting their shared driveway.

If you fit, this is a great spot to boondock. The Roost is beautiful, and you can even stroll along the adjacent airstrip! Highly recommended!!!

Wonderful stay!

The Fraybirds were so kind and welcoming. This was our first night in the camper and first Boondockers Welcome stay. The Fraybirds shared great ideas and inspiration for our camping days to come. Such a quiet, peaceful night in an easy to find location! Thank you!!

What a delightful place!

Even with social distancing we had a great visit! I even got fresh garden fare. Right on a grass runway that was a great place for my dogs to run. My hosts were very gracious and interesting to visit with. 5 stars!!

Amazing Hosts!

The Frays could not have been more hospitable! They gave us tips on the local area, fed us from their garden and even gave a tour of their hanger. This place is beautiful with walking trails on site and a state park close by. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend. a visit.

Thank you!

Had to come back again!

This was our second time staying with this lovely couple! They were more than welcoming and very accommodating! We loved our evening walks and conversing every once in a while. Sorry we didn' get to chat more. Thank you for the extra perks you gave us! We hope to come back again someday!

Extended stay with the Fraybirds

These kind folks were gracious enough to extend our stay one additional night during the Coronavirus outbreak March 2020. People like the Fraybrids that make the world a better place to live. Thanks again to these wonderful folks for their generosity and hospitality.

Great hosts with a terrific spot to park

The Fraybirds are fantastic hosts; friendly and welcoming. Great secluded spot to park most rigs with electric and water if needed. Highly recommended.

These folks were kind enough to put us up during the Coronavirus crisis March 2020.

Cant say enough how wonderful these folks are.

A welcome respite in these challenging times

The hosts made me feel so welcome. What a relief this is, especially during the virus scare. They showed concern for my well being which made all the difference to me while I planned the next step toward isolation on a long term scale. Their friendly dog was also a good host to my dog, making her feel welcome. Thank you for a wonderful visit on your beautiful property.

Great location with wonderful hosts

5 of 5 stars!!!!! The Fraybirds are marvelous hosts. They made us feel like long time friends. Ideal spot to park our Truck Camper rig; level gravel spot with electric. Reasonable drive to Nashville. Murfreesboro nearby. A couple of campgrounds just up the highway with dump stations available at reasonable cost. Big rigs might have some challenges getting off the highway to the host location and turning their rig around in the available space.

Cant say enough about how welcoming the hosts were and how much we enjoyed our stay.

A delightfully quiet hideaway

The Fraybirds were very generous in letting us stay at they gorgeous hideaway on their acreage. The 30 amp electric was much appreciated, as well as the tips to park in Nashville. The property is a good launching pad to day trips in and out of Nashville.
Thanks so much Fraybirds.....we will stop back if and when we are back in your neighborhood.

Great couple and great location!

They were so kind and friendly! They met us when we arrived, helped us get settled for the night with a plug in, and even offered us coffee in the morning! Truly some of the most friendly people we've met on the road.

A perfect evening

Jerry greeted me and asked if I like beer.
I’m from Wisconsin so obviously a big yes.
I was then treated to a great home made ipa and homemade soup that Margot made.

I have been traveling 6 days and by far the best meal and company of my trip.

I only hope they will travel to Wisconsin one day do I can feed them brats and a few local beers.

Thank you to these great hosts.

Quiet Landing spot for the night

We had the pleasure staying with Fraybirds one night extra then requested. It was so peacefull that after spending the day in Nashville the second night was a welcoming one. Although we did not spend a lot of time to sit down with them we felt at home. We would definitely recommend Fraybird as a host location and their wonderful dog Coda was a plus.
Thanks again!

Lovely hideout in the woods

This place is a great base to explore Nashville from!
It’s hidden from the road but host’s instructions helped us find it easily.
Beautiful spot in the woods with tons of place to park. Hosts were a lovely couple that brought out toys for our kids to play with and welcomed us to get ready to go on the road again.
Thank you for the lovely stay!
