Treasure in the deep woods of Maine

So relaxing! J&M are such an easy going and welcoming couple. They are fountains of experience and helpful information. We hope to wind our way through their neck of the woods again some day. So generous with their time, good water, electricity and dog treats. Their Great Danes are a joy and made our Goldens look small!

Above & Beyond

Site was excellent!! Guest went out of his way with assisting us when our tow vehicle had a dead battery. Luckily he had a charger and was able to jump our car. Had a great visit with Him and his wife, and also met several of their kids as they were having a family get together for his wife and they invited us to join them. Fantastic visit!!

Nature + Nuture

Loved waking to the melodious sounds of birds and the sites of truly free-ranging chickens all around my RV. Hosts had their own excursion but were easily available via text for my several inquiries, being a struggling newbie RVer.
Thank goodness for Boondockers!

Friendly hosts!

J&M are friendly and hospitable. Expect willingness to chat and help solve minor repairs on your rv. They had a fire most of the nights were there. Would stay again, their dogs are gentle as anything.

What a wonderful pair!

Jim and Mona were both so kind, generous and welcoming and their home in the woods is peaceful and quiet and lovely. This was our first BW stay, and they greeted us when we came and when we hugged and left. In between, we spent hours in conversation, and sharing stories around their fire pit. We could have talked for hours more, and hopefully sometime we will. Mona is an avid gardener and crafter and she gifted us with her (useful!) crafts. We had a great beginning here. Thank you so much.

This location is very private and peaceful. We have an issue with our old RV and Jcos drove me to a local place to get help. Very sweet! I would love to have stayed longer.

Great Stay in Maine!

We really enjoyed our two nights at J & M Woods. No issues at all getting in with a 40' 5er as they have tons of room to pull forward and then very easily back into a couple of different places. Just follow their directions in and go to the end of their dead-end road and no problem. We loved talking with J & M about travels, places to see, life on the road, and life in general! (The dogs are both the biggest and best behaved pets I've ever met.) We did a day trip into Portland and had a good visit to Fort Williams Park and Portland Head Lighthouse.
Thanks for having us! We'll see you down the road!

Beautiful spot, fantastic hosts

I'll definitely be coming back! Jim met me as I drove in and helped me park, then showed me the best spots to take my dog off-leash. He and Mona are fantastic hosts and the location was the tops - rural, but just a hop to Portland. I'll definitely be back!

Great Stay at J&M’s Woods

Enjoyed our weekend at a great boondocker spot! J met us on arrival and showed us where to go and offered electric and water. Peaceful area surrounded by woods. Our hosts were gracious, friendly, and helpful: recommended a great seafood restaurant near the ocean. We traded fun and interesting camping adventures with our hosts and a fellow boondocker.
Hope to get back another time :-)

Wonderful location and a great stay!

J&M Woods is a beautiful, secluded property surrounded by woods. They have two huge, friendly, well behaved great danes and a bunch of chickens. Hosts are very friendly and we chatted for quite some time. They recommended a number of nearby places to visit. Our time here is short but we did go see the lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth, ME (Portland Head Light). What a great quick trip. What a great host!

Great experience

J&M were extraordinarily welcoming, kind, and helpful. Their rural property is beautiful with plenty of room for a large rig plus water and electric hookup! The best part was getting to know this lovely couple and sharing stories. Thank you!

Friendly visit

Jcos are a super welcoming and friendly couple. They met us as we came in and helped us get settled. They provided us with water and electricity and gave us advice about where to go. We ended up arriving a day late due to weather and was so sad not be able to spend more time with them. Our son LOVED their dogs and chicken. Hope to meet up with them again

Fall at it’s Best - Like Coming Home

This was our second trip back here to J & M ‘s, they were off on their own great adventure during our first few days. But we felt like we were home & we made sure things we OK and done on schedule. We were so happy to greet them when they arrived & to get a big welcome from our 2 best boys- their dogs have become our dogs & we love them so!
This is the Best of Boondockers - the Best Hosts & a place where you feel like you are home!
Thanks so much J & M! Highly Recommend.

Wooded Oasis- True Maine Hospitality

We had the Best time at this small farm at the end of the road. A quiet and peaceful setting to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Beautiful Fall Foliage colors, hosts had a Camp Fire for us & other Boondockers, and the fun Free Range chickens. They are the Best Hosts & their 2 amazing dogs made us fall in love with them instantly. We arrived as strangers & leave as friends. Thanks so very much J & M! We highly recommend & we hope to see you again in our travels, maybe out West somewhere!

Super Awesome Hosts!

We super loved staying at J&M Woods! Our hosts were so great! They were there to welcome us and told us a bunch of places to visit in the area. They gifted us eggs from their chickens and home-baked treats for my kids. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Maine!

Salt of the earth!!!!

I have no adequate words to describe Jim and Mona, but I can say ill remember them, their hospitality and their beautiful property for the rest of my life.
We were welcomed and we felt like we were adopted by Jim and Mona from day one. Besides offering us their perfect spot to stay, we were thought how to prepare perfectly cooked Maine lobster, invited over to the bonfire, helped with hookups, and probably few more things im missing right now...
We are relatively new to the camping lifestyle and the tips we got from both are priceless... as I said I dont know how to put in words our experiences here. We will be forever grateful!!!
This was a true all American experience for me and I will forever cherish it. Thank you Jim and Mona!!!

Wonderful Hosts!

This was our first Boondockers experience as guests. We have hosted but never been guests. JCOS were the perfect hosts! The spot was perfect: level, with water and electric hook-up. There was one other camper there and JCOS hosted a campfire for all of us. We had a wonderful time exchanging travel stories and getting tips from each other of places to stay and things to do when traveling. The site is just close enough to the Maine coast that a day trip isn't hard at all (about 17 miles) but far enough away that you aren't in the middle of tourists. We had a great time exploring the Maine coast with lots of good tips from JCOS on what to do and see. They also told us about a blueberry farm about 3 miles away that had lots of good blueberries. If you visit them in August or September be sure to go get blueberries. Thank you JCOS! You will probably see us again next year.

I love Maine!

I had such a wonderful time at this beautiful small farm at the end of the road, which is the perfect place to get away. Both J&M welcomed me when I arrived and helped me get set up. There are many hiking and logging trails nearby to explore. On Friday evening, they hosted a wonderful campfire fire for me and the other guests who were visiting from Vermont. My visit couldn't have been better. They are super friendly hosts with an amazing location in southern Maine.

Best Experience Ever

We have new friends in Maine!! J and M were the best hosts we could have had for our 1st experience. They shared a campfire with us and allowed our well behaved dogs to enjoy the property. Thank you for the fantastic experience and PLEASE take care of yourselves so we can see you on the road in the future!! Blessings, Mike and Amy

Beautiful experience

There aren't words to express the kindness that was given to me and my pup! J&M are two of the sweetest people I've known. I'm a newbie to fulltime RV'ing and they took me under their wings and shared some of their experiences... including extensive practice with backing up my trailer! Their time is precious and they shared so much of it with me.

Most friendly couple in the most beautiful setting

I felt so welcome and really enjoyed hanging out with my new hosts friends. They had so many great stories and playing with the dogs and getting to tour the garden was extra nice. Gave me great advice for neat local towns to explore and Portland is really close as well. I especially enjoyed watching the chipmunks out my window while working on my computer in the morning and spending time hanging out with the hosts and other guests at the campfires. Thank you so much my new friends!!!

Come ready to make new friends!

As others have said, you come as strangers and leave as friends. Absolutely wonderful hosts and fur babies. We hope to have them come visit is too!
This location is wonderful and private with so many options to park and there are atv/snowmobile/mountain bikes trails surrounding the property. There are plenty of water spots for fishing, swimming, and boating and a quick drive to all the popular Maine spots!
We hope to visit again. Thank you so very much J&M Woods!

What an amazing stay!

We had such a good time with J+M! These are the type of people you want to have as life long friends. Our parking spot was great. We had a fun time at the fire and seeing some local sights. Their two dogs we love. Looking forward to seeing these wonderful people again!

Most Hospitable

Truly enjoyed our time here. J&M Woods were the most hospitable host we have had. Invited us for a fire pit each night with wonderful conversation. They're Great Danes were loving dogs who are fantastic with people. They provide lots of space to park, the road in is a dirt road but easy enough to maneuver. And the location is close enough to enjoy a day trip to any of the southern Maine coastal areas. Thank you both for such a wonderful stay!!

Came as Guest... left as friends

If you are looking for a very quiet place in the country, this is your place. Our host warmly greeted us as we pulled into the driveway and helped us quickly get situated and set up. Soon we were all sitting around a campfire sharing stories.

There is more than enough room to maneuver around in the driveway. Directions provided by the host were spot on, and we had no trouble finding it. There is plenty of clearance to get any large rig in here. Everything is exactly as described.

We highly recommend J&M Woods if you are ever in this area.

Outstanding

They are both hardworking people and we’re there when we got there, even though we were running late from a flat tire, to show us where we can park!! This was our 35th wedding anniversary. After working at our craft fair on Saturday, we drove around for the day visiting old memories in the area. Wonderful thing about boondockers is that some of the locations may seem out of the way for some people but that’s how you get to meet families like this. Couldn’t have been happier
