Description

You can park in our shaded driveway. It is wide enough for two vehicles so you will not block it. We have electric available and water to fill your tank, not to continually hook your hose. I would rather you hook into our electric than run your generator.

House Rules

None; just quietly spend a night or more, if you desire.

Access Road Conditions

It's just a quiet residential street. If the driver doesn't have good backing techniques long rigs may have a problem backing into a double wide driveway via a 90 degree turn from the street.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

We can put you on blacktop either by the garage or anyplace on the double wide driveway.

Wonderful host

Din is a super host, providing electric and water. The driveway is an easy backin and shady especially from the western sun. Directions were clear and easy too. I've stayed before at this site and enjoyed our chats very much. Thank you Din and all the BW hosts!

Wonderful Host

Very accommodating host. Nice level driveway, but make sure to bring leveling jack pads to protect the driveway (we did). Nice quiet area, the wildlife (bugs) lulled us to sleep. Electrical power was also very generous.

Secret cabin retreat

You'd never know you were staying in a residential drive, tucked away at Din's "cabin" in the woods. A quiet, shaded spot; electric easily accessible. Contacted Din very last minute as we made changes to our travel plans and were looking for an overnight spot near the Columbus area. Super friendly and welcoming host. Great spot for a quick stop.

Good location to visit the lake,

Even though they were not home, they accepted our request and let us use their driveway and electric. It was a relaxing location and fit our needs perfectly. Would definitely stay again if we take our kayaks back up that way. Didn’t get to meet them but might another time.

Nice stay and host.

Din was very accommodating and helpful. Site was very shady and like camping in a forest. I would recommend Din and would not hesitate to stay here again if the need would arise.

Thanks much Din.

Warm Welcoming Sweet People

We had a quiet night in Din’s driveway. She welcomed us and helped us plug in to 15 amp. We had a nice “safe” conversation and would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic Host

Din's Cabin is in a lovely residential neighborhood, the driveway is wide and we had absolutely no problem getting our 36' TT plus tow vehicle parked. Please know this will be a matter of the driver's comfort/ experience level 😁
My only regret was not having more time to hear about Din's adventures! But even in our rushed schedule, our host made us feel safe, welcomed and relaxed. Thank you, Din, for going the extra mile and helping us when our power cord burned out. We value the advise you offered and appreciate the compassion & generosity you gave us and our pets!
I highly recommend Din's for a peaceful rest from the road.

Great experience

This was our first time using boondockers. So glad we were able to meet Din. We were made to feel welcome, comfortable, and safe. Close enough to spend the day in the city or just enjoy the trails and parks in the area. Sorry we missed meeting her husband. Will definitely try to visit again when back in area.

Nice location.

Thank you Din for being a host and respecting our need for social distancing at this time. It was easy to get to with your directions and the driveway easily accommodated our 32 foot fifth wheel and truck. We really appreciated having access to electric also. With all the leaves I saw on the ground, I imagine it is gorgeous in the fall.

If our future travels takes us this way again, we would definitely check into availability.

Wasn’t able to make it but ...

Din was very accommodating, and super sweet and understanding when I let her know that we weren’t going to make it due to the fact that we are still getting acclimated to how much slower RV travel is then traveling in a regular vehicle. Looking forward to catching them sometime in the future!

Second time to the cabin in the woods and enjoyed the opportunity. Gave us the chance to get my wife in touch with sewing group and time to rest before our return home.

Great host.

A Great Stop at Din’s Cabin

We utilized Din’s driveway for our base camp when visiting family in the area. We had a great stay and enjoyed coffee on the deck (from 6 ft away) with Din before we left on our last day. We stayed in a 40ft 5th wheel, which is about as long as you would want to go here with backing in on the blind side. Make sure to have boards under the jacks and stay at least a foot and a half away from the edge to keep that driveway of hers looking great!
Thanks Din!

Respite in the woods

Such a wonderful host could not ask for better. We felt welcomed from beginning to end. Lovely shaded site on wooded lot. Walked the street with coffee in the morning and found it to be very homey with surrounding properties well maintained. Location met our needs with easy access and lots of amenities such as Kroger's, Restaurants, Gas Stations and more.
My wife and I are very grateful for the opportunity and would enjoy a revisit in the future.

Din is a perfect hostess! Made us feel incredibly welcome. Helped us with our power issue. Enjoyed quiet evenings chatting with incredibly interesting stories about life.

Thanks Din!

Din is gracious host!

We'd like to thank Din for being so welcoming and hospitable.
Our family enjoyed chatting about traveling and life with Din. We will certainly remember her and hope that we can visit her again sometime.

The location is great if you want to visit Columbus while staying in a more rural/suburban area outside of the hectic city. The house is on a quiet residential street and we didn't have any problems backing our 40ft. fifth wheel into the wide driveway. When facing the home, we parked on the right side of the driveway so that Din could pull out her car, which was on the left side of the garage. The driveway is pretty level, but we did need to use a few leveling blocks.

What a nice stay we had and Din is an exceptional host!

Great Location and Superb Host

Din's "cabin" in the woods is a perfect spot to "camp". In a secluded, mature neighborhood but pretty close to amenities. Super friendly, generous, and accommodating host. I only wish we could have spent more time visiting.

SO NICE TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS

We found that we had quite a bit in common with Din in addition to our RVing interests. She was very gracious and we enjoyed a fairly lengthy conversation. Hopefully our paths will cross again someday.

Nice place to stay! Host wasn’t available for personal emergency but had someone take over to help and make sure all was fine for my stay. Very much appreciated.

Wonderful shade and even better Host

Din was such a warm and inviting lady! Next time passing thru area will consider staying here again! Wish I could had more time to visit with her as she was such an incredible lady, that was so encouraging, and compassionate!

Short but Sweet

This was a perfect place to stay as we travel south. Din was a great host assuring that we had just the right place to park so that we would be comfortable for the night. It was great to be able to plug in and not have to run our generator as our small fans and open windows allowed us to get a good night's sleep. Would recommend this location. Thanks Din, we are very grateful to you!

Sorry we didn’t stay

My apology for leaving, but I was having issues backing in (me, not your spot) and I was afraid I was going to put ruts in the neighbor’s yard. My truck is too long and won’t turn this long camper short enough.
Thank you for hoisting.

Quiet time in the woods

Din was so accommodating to us while we stayed at her home. She showed us her Class B that she has taken all over the place. We are so grateful for good people like her, that we meet through Boondockers Welcome.

Relaxing Hideaway

Very welcoming host and was extremelymely helpful. We were in the area visiting our daughters family and was unable to park our RV at their house. Din graciously accepted our request to boondock interior driveway. Our RV and toad are 60 feet long and we were able to park in their drive. You just need to take your time getting in and out. Our highest recommendation for this location.

Wonderful host!

Din was a wonderful host. Both she and her granddaughter were very friendly and pleasant. In addition to providing us with a parking space, Din provided us with power (15 amp) and WiFi. We chose to use our coach’s air leveling system as opposed to the hydraulic jack to ensure we didn’t damage the driveway. Our RV is 45’ long, and as such it was hard for us to level it given the slightly sloping driveway. Din lives in a residential neighborhood and the use of the generator would be too noisy. Fortunately we were only running our desiel burner and the 15 amp power was sufficient.

Many thanks to Din!

Superb host

Our stay with Din was nothing but peaceful and exactly what we were looking for. Din is generous, flexible, accommodating, and appreciative of everything we were able to help out with to say the least. When we come through the area again, we will absolutely request to stay with Din again!

Thank you so much, Din!

Very nice hosts

We enjoyed our time and conversation with our hosts. Din was very hospitable and we talked a lot about many different topics. Really enjoyed our time there and sorry for the delayed recommendation (we took a small break into our hometown, and now back on the road). Thanks again Din.

What more could you ask? I heart Sunbury & Din!

Lovely quiet area, very long spacious driveway that's not far from the highway and easy to back a 64' truck-trailer combo into.

Din is a lovely, kind, patient hostess. Thank you Din!

We arrived very late (Sorry Din!) and Din was still happy to see us and share tips about things to see along our proposed route.

It's really cxonvenient that at Din's exit, there is a Pilot and a Flying J for food/fuel.

Thanks again Din! You're the best!
