Pure Boondocking

What a great spot! The road to Mountainside of Maryland was a bit tight for our Fleetwood Bounder but with Bill’s help We didn’t have any issues. We had a wide open field to set up and our dogs loved the chance to run free. Although we only spent one night and we didn’t have the opportunity to talk at length we did have several short conversations about our trips and some general conversation. The hosts we great to interact with. When you get there take the Time to view the exterior of the home. The back ground on the home is very interesting. To top it off the star gazing was amazing.

Quiet, peaceful, wonderful setting.

We just needed some downtime with a quick overnight stay after a full day of traveling. Our host was so kind and helpful setting us up in the perfect spot for some peaceful rejuvenation and a comfortable nights sleep. Thank you!!!

Absolutely wonderful host!

Our stay at Woodside Retreat was excellent. The hosts went above and beyond to make our stay accommodating and enjoyable. Both host were extremely friendly and we really enjoyed our time visiting with them and sharing travel experiences and ideas. We loved how quiet and peaceful it was on the entire made for a very peaceful nights sleep. It’s a beautiful area to explore if you so desire. If not, Woodside Retreat is also just a great place to relax. We would stop here again for sure, if in the area, and plan on keeping in touch with the host as they, and their son, were such friendly, and gracious people.

Should have stayed longer

Words can’t express the architecture of the host home. What a delight to be given a tour shortly after a warm greeting at the gate to a meadow for parking on a nearly level grassy site in the shade of a large evergreen tree. The walk along a shaded lane by a covered bridge and up a hill to the host house was enhanced by a running commentary of local history. The evening was capped off on the deck with exchange of ideas on many topics interspersed with cheese and crackers and sips of Chardonnay. The hostess is a pro at watercolors which are a delight. Next year will try 2 days to explore this area.

A wonderful place to enjoy a peaceful & quiet night. The hosts were warm and hospitable. We took a walk to the reservoir in the early morning hearing the birds sing an the sound of the bubbling Mill Stream.

A great first stay with Boondocks Welcome

This was my first stay using my Boondockers Welcome membership. And I was the first guest for this host too. It was a great introduction to this organization. MountainsideOfMaryland were Great hosts and treated me like an old friend. They met me down at their mailbox, even though their directions made it easy to find. Showed me a couple of places to park my RV and invited me up to their home for a beverage and a very pleasant conversation about travel and RVing and their home which is eclectic and lovely. I parked down by the garden and had a few very quiet evenings. Saw them both mornings and we talked about their garden and the beautiful area they live in. This is definitely a place I would like to return to again especially in the fall, this place would be gorgeous.

Practical matters. Very strong signal from Verizon which surprised me do to the remoteness of the area. The roads to the location would be more fun in a Miata than a motorhome but I had no problem in my 25ft class C, just take it slow there are a number of working farms on the way. There is a COE campground (no hook ups) not far down the road from their place that has a dump station and potable water.
