Amazing hosts and Wonderful Respite space

Hosts were ultra responsive and genuinely accommodating. Great parking options on level ground set under some beautiful trees and adjacent to their wonderful backyard with expansive views.

They were just such amazingly pleasant and welcoming people with great stories (and great fresh muffins :-)).

Thank you again for the great conversation and the experience!

Great stay

This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay, and I can only hope future ones will be as nice. Jams and Fran were most gracious and great conversalionists.

Friends for life!

Such a beautiful experience with incredible people and beautiful property! We felt like we had arrived at an old friends house as they made us feel welcome and as if we’ve known each other forever. We look forward to seeing these folks again and highly recommend them!

Great Stay!

Jim and Fran were amazing, welcoming hosts! We enjoyed chatting with them on their deck, and walking in their woods. Our boys had a fun time playing in the woods and watching Jim and Fran unload their kiln. On our second night they made solution for giant bubbles and showed us how to make them. Before we left Jim made sure we had the recipe and a couple of his bubble-making sticks--so very generous! Our boys can't wait to try it again! As a thank you our boys were inspired to make origami gifts to leave, along with a thank you note. We hope we get to see them again on another trip!!

Could not be nicer!

This was my first time using this service. Hosts responded promptly at booking and at my questions prior to arrival.

This is a beautiful property. Hosts were friendly and welcoming and eager to make me feel at home. I had a ton of remote work I needed to complete and I had 4 bars of AT&T!!!! It was serene and quiet and pretty. Super close to several state parks and beaches.

Would highly recommend to anyone needing a comfortable place to stay!

Wonderful people and felt very welcomed.

Couldn't ask for more!

These hosts are simply the best, both in terms of the site, and their personalities. Follow host's driving directions, which are correct. Don't trust mapping software, which will lead you to the same address, but in a different town. These hosts are fascinating to talk with and most gracious. They embody the open-hearted, generous people who make BW so great.

Excellent stay at Ocosta By The Sea

Our hosts were so thoughtful and accommodating during our short one night stay. Would highly recommend this boondocking site. We had a lovely visit with our hosts on their deck in the afternoon. This was our first time staying with hosts and they made our stay truly rewarding.

Best stay ever!!

After days of travel in heat and smoky skies I landed with these wonderful folks. I can’t put into words how wonderful these two are!! They shared their fresh raspberries from their garden and other delights, let my friend and I play in the studio with clay, welcomed us inside for a real shower!! And the best part was spending a day at the beach and enjoying a meal with them…I felt so free and happy! And will treasure my quarter always!
A definite spot to return to, thank you!!

Amazing people

This was our very first experience using the boondockers app and it couldn’t have been a better one. Jim and Fran are the nicest people I have ever met and they really made sure we enjoyed our time there.

Sweet couple, cool forested property close to Westport and Aberdeen

Super sweet retired couple who kindly host Boondocker rv'ers and bicyclists (although I never saw the bikers even though they were there).

40 acre wooded lot just off the road, the dirt drive seems unlikely but opens up to the glen the house and shop are located.

Jim notified me the mapping programs are way off on locating their home. He will give you directions to follow landmarks to get there.

Humbled by their hospitality.

Jim and Fran are my first Boondockers Welcome experience and I could not imagine a more perfect introduction. Gracious and welcoming would be a gross understatement. Not only did we dine together and have outings, I left with my rig in with a fixed water heater, no easy task! They are both the quintessential hosts and finer people, you could not ask for. If you are lucky enough to discover them, you will be hard pressed to find better people on your travels!!

Awesome hosts!

Jim and Fran are the nicest people you will ever meet! Very knowledgeable of the area and directed me to the best points of interest and seafood! Yum

Wonderful hosts

They made me feel so welcome. The story of how they built their home from salvage materials was amazing. And they do pottery, got to see their studio and recent art. Very fun!
