Description

Wooded area on my 2 acre lot behind my home with lots of deer and turkeys. I love sitting out back in my tree stand. It is very peaceful.

House Rules

This is a residential neighborhood... I have neighbors close by that can see you through the trees if they go looking.
Pets must be well behaved and controlled - absolutely no dogs prone to barking.
No smoking.
No open fires.
No drugs of ANY kind to even be brought on my property.
No partying or loudness including no loud music, quiet background music is fine during the day.
Light drinking is fine but drunkenness will not be tolerated.
No fireworks or firearms to be discharged.
Quiet time 9pm to 7am.

Access Road Conditions

Dirt road on my 2 acre wooded lot, sharp turn, trees you must be very careful of but easily done by a good driver that knows their rig. Nice location in the woods behind my house (lots of deer and turkeys). This is my work parking area where I have a small shop and keep my work trailers, and small amounts of supplies and metal and wood recycling for my masonry business. No pull through spot but a good driver can turn a 40' around, make no mistake though it's tight to turn a big RV around (only for the very experienced driver to do so) and you really won't want to back out because of the trees and sharp turn. Small RV's (sub 30') have plenty of room to spin around easily. Tuesdays and Wednesdays can be tough because my deliveries for work and my dumpster pickup are on those days (both things are done by very large 40+' trucks going out back where you would be). It's doable but very early morning moving will be required on those days and the area for parking especially large RVs will need to be tightly managed all day long until those things are performed (no set time for either). Small (sub 30') RVs can be parked in such a way that they wouldn't interfere at all with my work stuff. My workers and myself will occasionally (not every day) be out back with pickup trucks during work hours (as early as 7am and as late as 9pm but that late is rare it's more like 6pm) but that doesn't cause any parking issues, plenty of space for us to drive around you. Not the most levelest of places, but not awful. You’ll pretty much be in the woods so, it can be a bit buggy out there around dusk and dawn, make sure to keep your screens shut and bring bug spray if you plan to hang outside at those hours.

Use the stay request form above to make a request with this host for a given date.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays are work supply and dumpster pick up days. You would need to be out very early on those days as large 40+' trucks are coming out back to where you would be and they need to be able to turn around. You will be in their way and they have no toleration of "waiting for you to move" in fact if you are even there when they come its going to be a problem except for the smallest of RVs. They come when they come, there is not set time for them.

Accommodating

Our request to stay at Deer Land was made one day prior to our intended overnight. Our host responded promptly. We arrived after dark and we were unsure about the exact location of the site. We were able to call the host and he guided us to his site. The site is wooded and we experienced a quiet night. The site was suitable for our overnight stay while visiting the area, We would like to thank our host for making the site available and would stay there again.

Lovely hidden place, expect sweet deers

jwcompanies welcomed us even though he wasn't around for the rest of the evening. He provided us with power and a lovely spot in his big backyard. We woke up accompanied by a bunch of deers strolling around the area, really close by our van. Perfect morning. And a perfect stay, thank you so much for having us!!

Friendly host. Nice quiet location.

Jeff is very nice and professional. He called me earlier on in the day to touch base and suggest where I should park. The location is a nice quiet shaded area behind his house. In the morning we went out for coffee and had a nice talk exchanging stories and information.
