Great spot!

My dog loved the field, and for a location in a city I’m surprised how quiet it was! A great stop.

Perfect for quick night or two

Thanks very much for the access to this parking lot. Camping locations in Maine are VERY expensive and must be planned for way in advance. This space allowed my spouse and I to do a quick few days in Maine which was wonderful!

Easy, comfortable and safe stay

After a day enjoying Portland, Old Orchard Beach and Kennebunkport, this was a wonderful spot to take a rest before traveling to New Hampshire. Never did get to meet Pastor but appreciated good communication, nice accommodations and positive, welcoming vibe. I’d recommend it. Nice stay!

A safe sanctuary during our journey.

Worked out perfectly. Quiet neighborhood and large, level parking area to safely and comfortably stop ove to break up a long drive. Thank you for opening up your place for road warriors like ourselves. Bless you!

Easy pull in and park.

Perfect spot after a long day of traveling. Parking lot is paved and large. Located close to downtown. Great lawn for our 2 pups as well. Good communication with Award795 too. We appreciated being able to stay here and it gave us an opportunity to check out the area as well.
*It is along a somewhat busy road, we parked back from road and found after dark it was quiet and we had a wonderful night’s sleep.
Also, we put name of business in our maps and it took us to some dead end road about 1 mile away. Make sure you type in actual address of location to help guide you.
Thanks again!

Great spot for a few days

Stayed for one night and unfortunately we wanted to stay longer and explore the area, but we ran into a family emergency! Will definitely be back!

Safe Haven

I was somewhat hesitant to stay overnight in a parking lot in a large city. Grace Point Church was truly a Safe Haven. Perfect location near coastal Maine activities and located in a quiet residential area. I would highly recommend Grace Point Church and appreciate their hospitality to travellers.

Excellent

We really appreciate Award795's responsiveness and we recommend theIr spot to all. There is a little market across the quiet street. If you're up for it, you can walk to town on the sidewalk.
Nearby is the Eastern Point bike path, which is flat and surrounded by beautiful trees.

Quiet Spot in Church Parking Lot

I had a great visit in Biddeford at GracePoint Church. I tucked my RV in the back, by the grass, and felt safe. I explored Portland, Old Orchard Beach, and Biddeford while in the area.

Great stay!

We were able to get some much needed rest here for a few days. It’s a perfect spot, close to a super market and a few places to eat. Pulling in was easy based on directions given and it was a huge parking lot. Only regret we weren’t in town long enough to attend a service and thank Award795 in person. Communication was easy quick and he seems like a very nice host.

Great Stay

Wonderful spot to spend the night. Large well lit parking area set back from the road. Park across the street and plenty of area to walk the dogs. Not far from restaurants and stores.
As a bonus we enjoyed an outdoor church service from our RV and were warmly welcomed by the pastor and some church members.

Big Lot to park on, centrally located. There is tall trees on one side, so we had shade in the afternoon. Thank you.

Quiet & Perfect

Just what we were looking for. A quiet place near the interstate to tuck in for the night. Large parking lot of this church - no one else parked. It was quiet and safe.

Thank you Award795!!

Quiet spot

A nice spot just a short drive for shopping. Met Pastor Andrew in the morning had a short chat. What a good use for a parking lot this empty most of the week.

Happy Campers

Thank you Pastor Andrew for having us. We are sorry we didn’t get to attend services. Would have loved to have heard you teach. Location was close to interstate but not right beside it. Directions were easy to follow with no problems. We felt safe in the large parking area and neighborhood. Glad we were able to meet Andrew and be the first Boondockers. Highly recommended!
