Description

WE CAN ONLY ACCOMMODATE VANS/VAN-LIFERS.....This is because in Lake county, FL, a person cannot sleep in an RV overnight legally, so even though we are on 2 acres deemed agricultural, we can't even sleep in our own RV in our own yard overnight....the ordinance guy stopped by to tell us this when we had an RV with guests in the yard....But a van would be somewhat different....You could park in the driveway and vans are not as obvious that you are sleeping in it/more stealthy.... I know, ridiculous rules. Ugh...Makes us want to move just because of that one rule!!!! Anyways, So if you have a nice van and won't catch the ordinance guys eye, then you are Golden to stay here. We Love meeting you all and are so sad we have to limit the stays this way, but no choice....If you do plug in(we have 30 Amp or 15 Amp), a $5 donation is appreciated per night.
The WiFi is not available in the yard, but the screened porch area has it.
We do not have any spectacular water views, but you can walk down the road to see the water.
Fenced area for pets; we do have a shih tzu who does not get along with other dogs, but is the sweetest, most gentle with humans.
If it works out time and weather wise, we have a pontoon boat we can take you out on to show you the beautiful Dora Canal(A $10 gas donation would be cool)

House Rules

Have a good relaxing time!
Common courtesy.
If you want to be left alone or the opposite, just say the word; it's all good with us. We respect privacy and communication.
We don’t want to bother neighbors, so unfortunately no generators.

Access Road Conditions

You will just pull into our driveway. Easy peasy. We are at the corner of a somewhat busy country road and a very quiet side road, so there is road/traffic noise from vehicles stepping on it at stop sign. Annoying.
I know I mentioned 1 night stay, but we could do more depending on the situation.... : ))

Amazing hosts!

Our visit was short notice and ours hosts graciously welcomed us. They have helped us to plan some great stops for the next leg of our wanderings and we plan to return for another visit very soon!

Phenomenal Boondocking Experience

This was our first boondocking experience and we feel very spoilt! Our hosts are the loveliest of people and went above and beyond to make us feel at home! From providing us with an extensive list of things to do to lending us their vacuum cleaner before we departed! We cannot speak highly enough about our stay here and look forward to seeing our new friends again soon!

Loving NomadLove

These hosts can’t do more to make you feel at home!

While they provide one of the easiest “Big Rig (HDT too) Friendly level sites you can find (not a pull through) the real welcome is in their personalities. Simply put, their not just hosts, their fun, enjoyable ambassadors of RV Life!

Warning to RV’ers on the move...you won’t want to leave!!

Super accommodating

We had a great time staying here and it was so nice of the host to open up their Fenced yard so that our dogs could play in a safe place. It was like meeting new friends! We are humbled by their generosity and hope to be back again.

Awesome hosts

They were the nicest people we’ve met since we left Michigan. Made sure we knew how to get there, and that we had everything we needed to hook up to water and electricity. Checked with us throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Very good hosts. Highly recommend them!!!
