Description

County property, just on the edge of Portland Indiana. Property boasts a beautiful 1950's brick home with wrap around porch, and 2 restored historic red barns on about 4 acres. No immediate neighbors - property is surrounded by farm fields on 3 sides. Easy access off of State Highway 67, with a circle drive on the property to make it easy to get in & out of. Highway location makes for corresponding road noise, but otherwise the the location is peaceful.
Electric is available (15 amp for sure, but possibly also 30/50 amp - there are outlets in the barns for higher than 15 amp service, but I haven't had a need to utilize them since buying the property in 2019. If I am home and you'd like to be the first to try them out, let me know!). A donation you feel is appropriate based on your usage level of water and power is requested. If you want to park without anything from me, always no charge. When I'm home I can fill your water tanks with softened water from the house (but not stay connected), or you provide you with a hook up to a water connection from one of the barns, but that water is unfiltered well water.
Room to park 2 RVs plus cars, if needed. Might be a tight for for two class A's depending on how each parks, but if you work together there's space.
I have a 1/4 acre fenced yard for my dogs that you can run your dog(s) in too when my dogs aren't out.
There is WiFi in the house, it may not be strong where you'll be parked, but you can sit on the porch to check email or catch up on work.
Walmart is less than a mile away to stock up.

House Rules

Prefer no smoking on property. If you do, don't leave a trace.
No trash disposal on property.
Re-lock the gate fence if dogs are run in fenced area.
Pets should always be leashed/tethered outside of fenced area.
Welcome to relax on the porch of the house.
Please stay out of the out-buildings.
You're welcome to take a walk and wonder around the back two mowed grassy acres.

Access Road Conditions

Access is off of a state highway. Driveway is flat, gravel & concrete and leads up to the house and a large gravel circle drive in front of 2 large out buildings. Years ago the property used to be a farm, so there is space to navigate larger vehicles. The former property owners owned a 40' class A motorhome that was kept at the property.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

I have a large circle driveway and spaces in front of 2 large out buildings to park in front of. All gravel, off-road.

Unavailable date.
Use the stay request form above to make a request with this host for a given date.

I work a full-time job, plus run a small winery weekends and evenings. Sometimes I am not home many hours, so be prepared to make yourself comfortable w/o much interference from me in many cases.
With advance notice, I can make power and/or well water connections out & available before you arrive if I won't be home at the time. Last minute bookings are okay and will be accepted, but understand that you may need to be self sufficient, without hookups in these cases. Please note in your request if you are uninterested in staying if hook-ups will be unavailable due to my schedule.
