My 2.5-acre property is shielded from neighbors by trees and topography. You can park in a private, fairly flat open well-drained grassed and mowed area that circles and is shaded by a large old apple tree. Landscaping screens the site from my house, which is about 150 feet away. There's an all-weather 20 amp outlet on the side of the garage, accessible with a 100-foot extension cord (which I can furnish). Water is available from a faucet near the house via a very long garden hose (again, I can furnish the hose).
I do have wifi, but it does not extend far from the house, so you're welcome to get your device(s) online from my front porch or the back patio.
I live on a recently repaved two-lane county road; my short gravel driveway runs 90 degrees, from the road to the garage, and then runs on right next to the garage and on to a graded mowed-grass drive that leads to the campsite. It's extremely easy to pull my 10-foot Aliner popup to and from the site without any backing up, so I'm sure it will suit somewhat bigger rigs as well.
April through October--- I am on the road all winter.
I am in a quiet rural town among the Taconic Hills of New York state, 25 miles east of Albany, 20 miles west of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and three miles from the Massachusetts border. "The Berkshires" and "the Hudson Valley" say it all.
We had a lovely stay with Jenny who was a wealth of information on all things local. We parked in a grassy back area of her house that had plenty of privacy and a beautiful view of her gardens. Though we had mostly cloudy and rainy weather we found plenty of stimulating indoor activities in the surrounding areas. I greatly enjoyed my morning walks with Jenny in the property surrounding her house. Thank you so much for having us and I hope our paths cross again in the future!
Jenny A was my first BW stay. What a gracious host! She greeted us in the driveway and showed us where to park - in an apple orchard just past her garage. Jenny offered the use of an electric hookup and even a firepit with starters and wood!
We chatted about some of her travels and she gave me some tips, since I'm a novice. I travel with 2 dogs, so she told me where I could walk them - in a large hay field with a pond across the road. She even came to check on us the following morning.
Jenny has a beautiful, quiet setting and is a wonderful host. The bar has been set high for future travels!
After helping us park in her back yard anong her flower gardens, Jenny invited us for iced tea on her front porch. There we had a lovely chat, while forming a new friendship.
This will definately be on my future visit list.
Jenny was a wonderful host ! She was most helpful, going above and beyond to help us out with our few problems. She is also a wealth of useful informations for other boondockers. Her spot is great, right next to the forest and to her nice garden.
Thanks a lot, Jenny !
Jenny has a beautiful yard, with a portion of it supervised by an old apple tree. Putting your RV up in that portion of her yard is incredibly peaceful, quiet and beautiful. It's not a place for a really big RV (difficult to get into that portion of the yard because you have to pass by the garage), but it was perfect for my 24 footer. Jenny supervised my passage past the garage (even getting up early-early in the am), which was a tremendous asset!
With a bottle of cold tea from Jenny, we sat at an outside table and got to know one another. After dinner, Jenny made her fire pit and fuel available. There, it's possible to listen to flocks of Canada geese flying overhead, the chirping of crickets, and watch the day fade away next to the crackling fire.
I had to make a quick and early getaway the next morning, but it would have been lovely to stay a while. Jenny offered help in picking the most picturesque route that fit my plans, and told me where to get the best deals on fuel. Wow!
Jenny travels with her own RV, so she's not always there. Be sure to plan early. Jenny's location and hospitality are wonderful!
We spent one night at JennyA's back in July - our first-ever Boondockers Welcome stay - and were made to feel instantly welcome. The spot was quiet, peaceful, and convenient to the Berkshires. Recommended.
