We live on 10 acres about 3 minutes from town. The parking site is in the driveway behind our house. Water and electric are located within a few feet of the space. The driveway is gravel. There are no trees along the driveway, but you are welcome to set lawn chairs up in the grass under a small tree. We are surrounded by woods on 2 sides. There may be some traffic noise from the highway, but otherwise it is very quiet with no close neighbors.
If you have a pet, contact us first. We have 2 dogs and they are not always gracious pet hosts to other animals.
Do not park in the grass.
Quiet hours between 10pm - 7am.
About an 1/8 of a mile of gravel off Highway 63. We have a 40' 5th wheel with a tow truck and we can turn out of the driveway with no problem. We have had a 42' motorhome here as well and had no problems turning onto the road. A large rig with a tow vehicle may have difficulty making the turn out of the driveway onto the road. We have a circle drive to use as a turn around or to pull into to back up to the parking spot. The parking spot is on gravel.
There is parking available in the driveway.
City park and golf course
We had a great stay at Bella’s Backyard. They are a great couple and great hosts. We will definitely stay again when in the area.
These hosts are super great! I called a couple times updating my arrival time and they were so gracious each time. When we pulled in, out the came to show us where to go and to help us back in. Very friendly and kind people! When in this area again, we will definitely hope to stay here!!
Darren was very welcoming & helpful getting us situated for the night. This was a very convenient stop for us being right near hwy 63.
Thank you for your hospitality 😊.
Second stay here and once again a great experience.
Thanks again for the hospitality.
Really nice folks with an awesome location. Helped me get situated and had a nice visit as well. Locally knowledgeable for food and best gas prices too!
I travel from Chicago to Oklahoma every year and will certainly be visiting again.
Host was a great communicator prior to the stay, and was very helpful in getting me parked and making sure I had every thiing I needed. What more could you ask for? A+
Great location, beautiful scenery, gracious host who was patient with me backing up my camper to hook up to electricity! I will be back. 😊
Our first Boondockers Welcome overnight stay! Our Hosts were very welcoming and provided for our overnite.
We enjoyed our conversations with both of them and got to meet their "puppies" as we are dog lovers also. Took a walk on their country road as the sun set on their country location.
I had a lovely drive through central Missouri to get to the location. It was a beautiful spot with a choice of places to park with electric. Friendly dogs to greet you. The host was very nice too.
I was grateful for a place to stay on the weekend of the 4th. Very restful and quiet.
I hope to pass this way again.
We only stayed one night but it was great. Our host and hostess were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Highly recommend.
We stayed for night as we passing through a road trip t. Our stay was outstanding
We had a refresh day and was ready to be on the road.
We had an awesome time meeting the hosts and their 2 wonderful dogs. A safe place to stay and a restful nights sleep. Perfect!
Highly recommend these hosts.
We parked and we went to sleep early. The location is secure and flat.
Woke up refreshed and kept the adventure going.
Very nice property right off the hwy.
Thank you Bellas Backyard for your kindness
The host were very helpful and friendly. I had a very restful evening. There location is easily located. I highly recommend them as host's.
We enjoyed our short stay at Bella’s Backyard. The hosts were very prompt with communications about our stay, and met us when we drove down the driveway. We easily backed our 34’ fifth wheel in front of the garage on one of the most level spots we’ve had on this trip. We relaxed in the afternoon overlooking a huge, beautiful yard surrounded by trees with their friendly pup at our feet. When we left this morning, we had another chance to chat with the host. We would highly recommend this site if you are in the area.
Lesa warmly greeted me and we had a brief but nice chat. She provided me with water to refill my tank which was great!
Unfortunately it was a bit chilly and rainy so I never had a chance to talk with the hosts a second time which made me feel awkward. I would have liked to tell them in person how thankful I am for their wonderful hospitality. I would also have loved to meet the 94 year old youngster who keeps the eight acres of lawn looking so incredible!
Great spot and even better hosts, all thumbs up from me!
Easy access off the Highway, beautiful, peaceful place to overnight. Very nice, friendly Hosts. Good amenities close by. Thank you!!
We had a great visit with the host. Got to play with the dogs and stretch our legs. We had a wonderful time.
Weather was cold and snowy. Right of the main road ,easy in and out. Nice spot to park.
Snow started coming down just as we arrived at Bella's Backyard. The hosts helped us get parked for the night
It was still snowing in the morning so Darren and Lesa insisted that we stay to see what the weather was going to do .
Darren and Lesa were nice enough to let us stay an extra night.
The following morning the snow was over and we were back on the road .
Thanks Darren and Lesa for a great place to stay and helping us through the snow storm. If you are ever in Southeast Nebraska feel free to stay at "Living in the Country" with us.
Great people. Friendly and accommodating. Conveniently located off the freeway. Beautiful piece of property. Thank you for your hospitality.
Very friendly and helpful. Will stop again if in the area
Outstanding Hosts! Very friendly and hospitable. Nice parking spot, electrical and water. Beautiful property.
