Such a Wonderful Couple and Beutiful Property

Ralph+Donna are so kind and caring. Their site is large and level and their property is stunning... right on a beautiful lake! They went out of their way to help me with a trailer repair as well. Cannot recommend them enough. Everything about this stay was lovely.

Great stay

Sorry this is late. We thought we had left a reference already, but it must not have gone through.
We really want to thank our hosts for a very comfortable and relaxing stay at thier beautiful property.
We were greeted warmly and shown where to park and given help with hooking up to electric for the night, then invited to walk down to the lake and enjoy the sunset.
Made to feel very welcome, nice level quiet site, and even some tutelage on my generator that was very much needed.
Thank you for the great stay, and we hope to see you again.

Lake camp

This was the best boondocking site we have stayed at and better than most state parks. Level site with lots of privacy, walk a short distance to a clear lake complete with screened in room and chairs. Perfect hosts who made available kayaks. Hosts were very friendly, can't go wrong staying here

Beautiful view, warm and helpful hosts

Ralph and Donna were terrific hosts and very friendly. They met us as we arrived and introduced us to their property. They have a beautiful place on the lake. We enjoyed talking to them about their traveling experiences and RV stuff. Gary has quite a few talents and one of his hidden talents came in handy when we were leaving. I'll leave it at that so he can share the story with future guests! : )

Great stay and highly recommended!

Perfect hosts

Hosts were two of the nicest, most pleasant folks we have met. We got to compare truck campers and they were willing to share some tips about better ways to do things. Property was beautiful and set up was easy. Fun to talk to. Thanks for the cozies and the suggested running route! It was awesome!

Wow!

Great Hosts, beautiful spot, very quiet.... peaceful. If you are driving by their area, do not hesitate to contact them, you will not regret it. We arrived earlier than expected so we got to sit by the lakeside. My wife knitted and I read a good book. Thanks again To both of you.

Wish they were neighbors!

It was a real pleasure staying with our hosts! They were welcoming, friendly, funny, and sincere; exactly the kind of folks we would be thrilled to have as neighbors. By the end of the evening we felt as if we'd known them for much longer. We would be honored to stay on their beautiful property again, and hope we do.

Wonderful stay

What a wonderful stay we had at Ralph and Donna’s home. Beautiful location situated overlooking a lake. Level gravel drive made for easy parking. Most of all we really enjoyed our time spent talking to Ralph and Donna, looking at their Alaska scrapbook and sharing our RV travel stories. Hoping we see them again one day. Thanks again!!

Great !

The site is exactly as represented. In a 30ft class C the inward dirt rd of only about 0.3mile posed no problems including no errant trees. Our very acomodating hosts were generous and forthcoming and we enjoyed good times, good informative conversation, shared coffee and treats - nautical and otherwise. All good !
Thanks and kind regards,

The Best of Newport

A fabulous Boondocking experience! We had a lovely level and shaded spot and a
120 volt/15 amp connection. We had a swim in the lake, which helped us cool down from the intense heat. I would highly recommend a stay with this host couple.

Welcoming

Lovely and well maintained property on a lake. Parking was on a gravel side drive, pull through and level. Our hosts were welcoming, and showed us around the property and down to the lake, inviting us to make use of the water access and screen shelter and other amenities as we would like. They respected our privacy but were also available to visit. We enjoyed talking "travel" with them. We would definitely request a stay here if we are passing through in the future.

Great Stop

Ralph and Donna have a beautiful property on a lake just off I95 in Maine. What more could you ask for in an overnight stop? Their property offered a peaceful night sleep, clean, clear air and cool nighttime temperatures. The huge yard is lovingly cared for and manicured. Sitting at the lake is a great way to recharge after days on the road.
But the best part of our stay was meeting Ralph and Donna. We felt like friends immediately, they are very gracious hosts. They shared information about places they have traveled and things they have seen. Donna has a scrapbook of their Alaska trip that we got to look at.
I definitely recommend this location if you need a stop in the area. We travel in a 42’ motorhome and tow a car and had no trouble by following Ralph’s directions instead of the GPS.
Thank you, Ralph and Donna!

A great boondockers experience

We had the privilege to be the first guest staying at Ralph+ Donna but I'm sure we will not be the last. In fact the second came only a few hours later. What a great experience. The location was quiet and serene and the hosts great rvers. We accepted the offer to stay a second night and visit local attractions suggested by Ralph. Enjoyed exchanging RV experiences of which they have many. I certainly hope Ralph +Donna will be able to visit us in Kansas the next time through. Highly recommend them as Boondocker hosts.
