Terrific spot

Easy to back into very level driveway with 30 amps and water hookup. Shawn had info about activities in the area and was a delight to visit with.

Beautiful. Restful!

Shawn’s spot is a delightful respite from travel through Indiana. He greeted us warmly and our rig fit great in his parking space overlooking a lovely yard - with a view of water. Great blue herons, water birds. So nice and restful. Very quiet for sleeping. Many thanks for a great stay.

Nice stay

Very nice host, met us upon arrival and provided us with local brochures and knowledge. Depending on the crop schedule, a plane might fly over. But once dark, it's very quiet.
Thanks, hope to come back sometime.

Had a very nice spot in the driveway at the front of the garage. Level and at the end of the street. Should have been peaceful too, but a small yellow plane chose last night to do so many fly overs I thought we were being given a private air show! Not a problem- it was entertaining to watch and he stopped before bedtime! Thanks for the local info brochure - we did a couple of the Amish shops when we left this morning and bought a lot of local stuff to take with us!!!

Great site and great host!

We really enjoyed the site and location was good to all the things we wanted to see. Our host was great, very helpful and friendly. Hope to visit here again.

Great location

Couldn't have asked for a better spot to visit all that Shipshewana has to offer! Didn't get a chance to meet host but he was super easy to communicate with if we had any questions. We'd definitely love to return again!

Great place!

Shawn is a very friendly, helpful guy whose home is right on Shipshewana Lake. His yard is lovely & quiet & we enjoyed our stay here very much!

A great location with a very gracious host

I really appreciate Shipshewana_Shawn's hospitality. The site is straightforward enough - a driveway at the end of a cul-de-sac, right off the lake. Shawn provides 30A + water as needed, and backing into his driveway was really straightforward. All night we were serenaded by frogs and nocturnal birds, it was private and we felt very safe. Thanks again!

Awesome host & located right next to the lake!

Shipshewana is a great area and this host is located just a couple miles from town in a lovely rural area right next to the lake. He is new to Boondockers Welcome and we were his first guests. The host was friendly and helpful while we were setting up and we enjoyed chatting with him during our stay there. His property is beautiful and it was so relaxing and peaceful looking at the lake with the lilypads, reeds and sounds of the birds. We had a mechanical issue and he went above and beyond to help us get through it. We are looking forward to a return visit next time we are in the area!
