J&K are the sweetest hosts. Always helpful and accommodating. K shared her cucumbers and rosemary from her garden. J helped us back in our 5th wheel. They gave us potatoes from a local farm also some apples and pears. You couldn't ask for better hosts. We felt so welcomed. Thank you J & K!
K was a delight. Didn’t get to spend much time with J but they’re just great people. We enjoyed some fresh produce. Shared a few sunsets. Shared a few laughs, especially about the mint! Gorgeous mountain view’s and the cove is beautiful. Overall just a great spot with great hosts. We should have stayed longer!
This was our first “Boondocks ers Welcome” stay, and we could not be happier! Our hostess was delightful, and we hit it off immediately. She sparkles with sincerity, vivacity and good humor, and you can tell that opening their ranch compound to traveling strangers brings her joy. We did not get to meet her husband, who was off fishing.
Parking area was wonderfully level packed gravel, and from where we parked, we had a wide open view of neighboring fields and the hills beyond. Lovely sunset.
The ranch dog stayed nearby and kept a watchful eye on us.
The host was generous with her time and attention. Her garden veggies, and we were able to fill our freshwater tank from their drinking water (delicious).
J & K’s Vista Ranch has set a very high standard of hospitality that will be hard to beat!
We had a wonderful time staying here. Very nice people and accommodations.
Very welcoming friendly host! Peaceful night’s rest. Special thanks for the fresh corn 🌽!
John and Karen are so welcoming. It was a great place to stay. Flat and scenic. John even provided electric hookup and our dog got along well with theirs.
Such a privilege to stay w such extraordinary people on there well kept farm land.
Perfect spot just far enough from the hustle and bustle. (Bend)
Thanks again 🙏🌻👍🚜
What a great place to stay! The dogs loved it they had lots of room to run. We loved it for the views and the privacy and the quiet. Hosts J and K were beyond great! Very hospitable, ffriendly and welcoming. Will definitely have them on our list to stay at again when we come back this way. Thank you for a great first experience at Boondocking.
J&K we’re tremendous hosts. I even booked last minute. They were very accommodating to us & the short notice. We loved everything about their place. My kids had a great time & we enjoyed the conversations with J&K also. Thanks again for everything.
Jammerdoc is a great place to stay during your travels! We wished we had more time to visit and enjoy the area, but the views were great and the hosts were lovely. Enjoyed talking to them a bit and appreciated their hospitality! We will definitely stop here again the next time we come through the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with J&K. They were above and beyond the nicest hosts and we hope we can stay with them again in the future. Wish we could have spent more time talking with them. Next time we won’t go in circles and miss your property!! :)
John and Karen were very gracious hosts..... It was such a wonderful experience to be on their breath-taking property. It is rare to be tied to the land and share it with those who have never experienced such a sight in their lifetime.
We are grateful for the experience.
We had such a great time here at the hosts location. They have a beautiful property surrounded by mountains. We were able to let our dog off leash and run and play.
The hosts are so friendly, and very accommodating. They were amazing!
We highly recommend staying here if you are passing through!
We had a pleasant stay at J & K’s for a night. Easy to get to and lots of room to maneuver. J gave us options for spots and we picked the great view of the mountains! Great spot for a morning walk and nice conversations with the hosts. Thanks for having us, we’ll see you down the road!
J and K are the Best Host!!!!
We love visiting with them....
We will be back for another stay!!!
Our first BW stay. Hosts were super friendly and generous. Beautiful area and we learned a little bit about farming. Loved hearing all the frogs at bedtime. Would definitely stay again!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful spot with Scout (dog) and myself. It was a perfect of the Sisters from my rig, and I loved our morning walk around your property. Until next time ...
we would definitely stay here again. very helpful hosts.
We technically didnt stay - we got in so late, we didnt want to disturb, but we did see the setup, and it was as wonderful as described
We had such a wonderful stay! Large flat area to park with incredible views of the mountains. Quiet area, convenient location to explore a couple beautiful state parks. The hosts are wonderful and the exact type of people you hope to meet through boondockers welcome. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to park, will definitely be back next time we are on the west coast!
Really nice people, really beautiful place and a buddy for your pup to play with, who could ask for anything more? Really enjoyed my time, morning walks with the hosts were a great way to start the day and the views were amazing. 10/10 would definitely recommend
I initially ask to stay for one night, but my plans got changed on my next stop due to illness. I was graciously welcomed to stay another night. They were helpful in every way. Even offered my a dozen farm fresh eggs to take along, but i already had some. Very nice couple
Staying at J&K's Vista Acres was truly wonderful. Above and beyond. It was my first time using Boondockers, and I had contacted them last minute because I found out the part I needed to fix my furnace was going to be a few days. As inches and inches of snow mounted up, these two kind angels let me plug in at their place and stay warm. I could write on and on, but I will keep it short and sweet: J&K made me want to treat someone the way they treated me and I hope I can pass it forward someday.
If you ever get the pleasure to be out here, you'll never forget the beautiful mountains all around and the peace that this vista/slice of heaven can bring to a boondocker.
Thank you J&K!
J and K are amazing host. Gracious and welcoming to their place.
Amazing views great walking areas. Close to Madras. Not far from Redmond, Bend or Sisters.
Love it here!!!
