Commercial property...surrounded by woods
3 Miles from I84
Close to train station
1 1/2 hour train to NYC
We were in a bit of a bind on our travels from the east coast back home to California and had to detour at the last minute. Our host responded to our request immediately and allowed us to park for a few days while we took care of our business. He came and checked on us and made sure we were all settled in. The space is level and private. We felt very safe. It is close to food, fuel stations, a laundromat, and the train station. We went into New York for an overnight and it was a pretty quick hour and twenty minutes to get there. Thanks for hosting us for the weekend on such short notice!
His response time and directions were excellent. Have been coming to Danbury in October many years. Have struggled with finding local campgrounds. We were delighted to find that there was a Boondocker in town. Location is behind a business building, not visible from the street. We felt very safe. Occasional train noise, but not a problem. Host greeted us and we felt welcome. FYI. We found a free dump station at Welcome Center at Exit 2 on I84.
Our host gave us perfect directions to park on his property, and we were able to easily park without his being present. We went out to dinner after parking, and sadly missed meeting him, but it was great that he took the time to come and check on us on a Saturday night. This is a safe, clean, quiet, level location, with many choices for eating out, and even a laundromat half a block away, which we utilized to kill some time after dinner. We had a quiet night, and would gladly overnight here again!
Mr. Moody gave perfect directions and everything was just as he said. Parked in the shade and pulled cord to the electric. Was able to use CPAP without running the generator. Train came through at 1:30am and not another until 7:30am. Good nights rest.
Had a wonderful respite from driving home from Canada at Jay's shop. (sorry for not writing until now but myriad family emergencies kept popping up.) For June it was incredibly hot (upper 90's). Found his place with little trouble, and hooked up to the electric provided. Thank heavens it's an industrial complex and being a Sunday afternoon I could run our generator for some much needed AC without bothering a soul. I never did meet my host, but being kindred spirits in boat building I'm sure we would have hit it off! Thanks Jay for a nice night....
The owner was out of town and allowed us to park at his shop. It's actually a commercial property so there was some forklift noise as an alarm clock :-) The place was safe, paved access, well lighted, easy to find! Thank you so much for the stay... your the only person in this part of CT and it allowed us to visit with friends here on our way through. The only bad thing is that JayMoody was out of town and he builds wooden kayaks and more, it would have been very interesting to see his work!! Again, thank you!
they allowed us to stay on their property came to see that we found the hook up very helpful and pleasant. had other boondockers there at the same time they made sure we could both fit comfortably.
Nice, well-lit location with plenty of room, though you'll have to disconnect your toad to turn around. In a clean industrial location, but quiet at night once the trains stop running. Jay is a great host, we had a nice chat.
Jay and our stay on his property was great! Jay made the whole experience very easy and he was kind and generous. We fit perfectly with our 30' class A. The parking area is well lit and we felt safe at night, coming and going. The location is close to many amenities. One of our best BW stays - thanks Jay!
Nice quiet and safe location. Lots of space. Easier to find in daylight. Thanks to jaytmoody. Moshie
