Our property is smallish by many standards (just 3.5 acres) and it is flat and has just a few clusters of trees so our house will pretty much be in view no matter where you park. We do have a septic system so you'll have to avoid traveling over certain areas as to not damage it.
We have a pool that guests can use, and it has an outdoor kitchen (with a grill, refrigerator, and ice machine) There is also a pool house with electricity and a fan, lawn chess, and bocce court.
There are also several outdoor seating areas you can make use of - plenty around the pool including a covered porch with a hammock as well as a pool house electricity. There is also a covered sitting area off to the side of the main house as well as an extensive porch which has great views in the mornings and evenings.
Be respectful, and keep the noise reasonable for ourselves and our neighbors. The property is fenced, but depending on the size of the dog they may be able to crawl underneath the lowest board, so you may have to leash it if it tends to roam. We prefer couples rather than families with children, but we aren't 100% ruling out families. No generator use, please. Morning hours (anytime before noon) should be quiet times as I write then and too much noise can be distracting.
We are directly off a paved state-maintained road, but we do have a gate and I'm not 100% sure what size camper will be able to maneuver through it. Once we have some visitors we'll keep track of what can and what cannot make it.
We have extra parking space on our driveway or people can park on the grass
We will be doing our own traveling, but not sure when. When requesting a visit leave a message and we'll call you back.
Shenandoah National Park
Shenandoah River (tubing, kayaking, and canoeing)
Upon our arrival, we were greeted by our hosts and they helped us get set up. Our hosts were very kind, thoughtful, generous....the list is endless. Their property is absolutely breathtaking and quiet. We wish we had more time to spend with our hosts (they are very interesting folks) since we went hiking both days. They suggested trails for us to explore which was quite helpful. We're looking forward to going back there again.
Thanks Soo much for the wonderful hospitality and helping us on our first adventure! We had a great time!
We spent two nights parked by M and R's home. They live in a truly beautiful location, with great access to Shenandoah National Park. They were generous in allowing us to use their lovely back patio.
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in such a beautiful place. Although it rained for the entire trip the views the mountains the leaves and the access to Shenandoah national Park was perfect. Wonderful hospitality, everything we needed and would love the opportunity to stay again in the future. Hardly felt like we were boondocking :-)
This is a lovely location for touring shenandoah national park. Easy to find. Very accommodating hosts. Beautiful vistas and tons of nighttime stars!
We arrived and got the tour...our jaws kept dropping lower and lower as we saw the beautiful pool and patio area they made available to their guests. This is resort living for goodness sakes!
We chatted for nearly an hour as we kept finding things that we had in common.
Wonderful people, wonderful facilities. This is one we’ll make an effort to get back to when we aren’t so booked up with appointments just to spend more time in property.
We’re also eager to follow up on some reading recommendations they gave us! ;-)
Wow - Avrlyn was so much more than we were expecting. Beautiful setting, home, and outdoor area. Our hosts spent their entire evening with us outside by their pool. Much lively conversation on many topics, drinks and a bite to eat. It was comfortable and like being with old friends, not folks we just met! Thanks so much. We would definitely stop by here again if in the area.
This was our second Boondockers Welcome stay. We were welcomed beyond expectations.
The hosts are friendly, courteous, welcoming, and gracious. The experience was like visiting with long-term friends.
A level site with easy access to water and electric is a comfortable fit for our 18’ Minnie Winnie
A word of advice:
Garmin GPS coordinates are almost a mile off, and on the wrong side of the road, Google Maps is accurate.
Beautiful place! Enjoy our stay very much. And the pool! Nice to meet these hosts, thank you so much!!
I was only here for one night on my way home to get my daughter from college after the school closed due to the pandemic. They were the sweetest most gracious hosts you could imagine. It is also a beautiful area, wish I could have had time to explore it more! Thanks so much for hosting me.
We had a great stay. The hosts were super nice and inviting. The location is awsome for the skyline drive, and the property is large and beautiful.
