No smoking on the property.
Parking areas may be moved if access to the barn is required by the owners.

Stay at Valley Retreat

Nicely located. Near Watkins Glen and Elmira. A short drive to the Finger Lakes and the Wineries. Beautiful area. The host was away while I was there so didn't get to meet her but she responded quickly to any questions I might have.

Quiet safe place!

We overnighted on the first night of our trip from Vermont to Oregon in the parking area and felt quite safe. Road noise was minimal. We woke up to a beautiful sunrise with some loach views. Host provided clear directions and responded quickly to messages. We did not get to meet, but during Covid, that might be good for all of us.

Little slice of paradise

She was the perfect host! Super communicative and generous with the space. Her little barn area was a great place for quiet rest and beautiful mornings. Thanks for making our first BDW stay so lovely.

Boondocking stay in Horseheads, NY

Gracious hosts and friendly people. Helped us get settled and park in the correct spot for the night. Another example of a great stay during our USA trip. Thanks again to our hosts!

Great host. Very helpful

Great location for day trips to local waterfalls. Little tight for 30ft toy hauler. But made it work.

Our host is an awesome host, bar none.

This lady was so nice to us. Host even gave us a box of strawberries they had just purchased! We can not say enough about this host. And the spot we were given was perfect for our 29 foot class c, we do not tow another vehicle. And that worked out great.if you like peace and quiet? This is it. I would like to thank our best again.
We give them 5 stars or even more.

Valley Retreat

Host was very accommodating. We meet all her dogs which quickly became best friends with our dogs. Even had time to sit around a fire pit. We were just there for an over night but her location is great for a visit to Watkins Glen.

Note:. Entrance to the area was tricky. Maybe add a flag or sign. Bottom line was we did find it!!
