Note: Please provide ample time to reply to requests (3 days minimum). If able, we would enjoy having guests.
The $5 per night charge was the lowest option we were allowed to choose, but we only need to recover what is used, which would likely be $3/night or less, and only if using electric heat or air conditioning. No charge for water or incidental electric.
We have a large yard (a few acres) in a semi-rural area. We offer a patio & upper deck, patio table and chairs. Could accomodate up to 35ft MH or 30 ft trailer with a tow vehicle.. Convenient (1-5 miles) to Propane, grocery, county park, library, small beach, hospital and churches. Walmart - 5 miles.
We are not fond of hyper, in-your-face, yapping, noisy, snippy, or licking pets, but have no problems with a couple of quiet, well behaved pets that are picked up after.
We have one 15 amp exterior plug as well as spigots available with good well water. 1-2 nights. If longer needed, lets talk.
Just common sense curtesy. Inform us by text of arrival time (with sufficient warning). Do not arrive when we are not here to welcome you. We also prefer to be here when you leave, unless we make plans otherwise because of a conflict of schedules.
Inform us of any difficulties that we may be able to help with. You can text or knock on rear sliding glass door (if we're home).
Short distance (1 - 2 miles) from multi-lane highways. All paved roads, clear, easy access until getting in the gate. Small & medium sized rigs are easy in & out. Our driveway/gate/mailbox/ditch configuration makes anything larger than a 35ft motorhome or a 30ft travel trailer difficult or imposible to get in our yard. (Our son's 30ft TT pulled by a E350 van barely fits). I would think a 35ft 5th wheel would be okay except possibly some large limbs may be an issue for very tall rigs.
Driving over fairly level grassy area circling our house generally requires no backing. Easy in & out.
Towed vehicle or tow vehicle can stay attached or parked separately (in yard only, no street parking). There are level areas available.
Easy drive over grassy area makes complete circle around house, so backing is usually not necessary. Other than tightness at front gate that requires caution when pulling in, it is very easy in & out.
Medical issues are currently causing some irregular unavailability, but give us a shout. We'll gladly welcome you if we can!
Also, check with us if your plans require arriving or leaving between 6am - noon on a Wednesday as we have early morning commitments on many (but not all) Weds and want to always be here when guests arrive or depart.
Veteran's Memorial County Park, 1/2 mile west.

Excellent location. Lots of trees and close to amenities. Hosts very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this location to others travelling in the area.
My brother and I arrived on Sunday morning February 15th around 5 p.m. Both hosts greeted us with big smiles and waved us in. Guided us to a nice shaded area amongst the trees in their backyard. Great little spot...hydro, water, wi-fi and lots of room for our Border Collie pup to run on her long tie-out. Both hosts very helpful as they supplied an adapter for our power cord and offered lots of information on the local tourist attractions.
We would highly recommend "rosegramma" to anyone else travelling in the Hudson area. Thank you again! You made our first Boondocking experience a memorable success!
These folks are caring and nice. Enjoyed talking to them and hope to see them on the road or at our house. Hope they get the van of their dreams.
It’s been very peaceful Lois and her husband are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I have really enjoyed their company more than I can say.
One word...FANTASTIc!!!!!!!!!!tanks you Very Very much!!!!!
This was my second time staying in Millers Backyard. These are two folks who are the epitome of what the Bookdockers Welcome experience is all about. Friendly, accommodating and have an excellent property and location for the nomadic boondocker. While they were hosting me, they also hosted a delightful young couple from Quebec. Lois & John are consummate Boondockers Welcome hosts. I look forward to staying with them again in the future. Thanks, guys - you do it right!
Beautiful home and property that easily accommodated our rig and car without having to unhook. Lois and John are so friendly and easy to talk to. They made sure we were comfortable and hooked up to electric and water. Quiet area for a good night's rest.
We had a short stay and wish we had more time to spend with our hosts. We chatted in the evening and again in the morning before we had to rush off. The milk for our cereal had gone sour and our kind host brought some out to us from her kitchen! How helpful is that?!?
We enjoyed our stay very much with Lois and John, aka rosegramma. The site was perfect and the welcome we received was inviting. Although we stayed only one night, Lois and John felt like old friends when we left.
We were warmly welcomed and had a nice visit. They knew the area well and helped us with a couple of beach suggestions for us and our small dogs. We were a long way from home and they made part of our trip feel very home like. The coffee in the early morning at our outdoor table was a special touch. Would love to go back sometime just to relax with them in their lovely yard.
We feel very welcome,and they we're very-carefully when we contacted this host.This feeling became true when we arrived.
Our plan was to go to the Dali museum, so we were a little in a hurry the next morning and we missed the coffee and the breakfast,she offered,and that was a pity.
Thank you very much.

Wow! You couldn't ask for nicer and more helpful hosts. John and Lois are awesome. I spent two days and everything was perfect. They provided shore power, water and great info on the local area and things to do, places to see. I have two more wonderful friends from the RVing and Vandwelling lifestyle. Thanks for a wonderful stay, John and Lois.
Wonderful people I'm so glad I got to know them. They hooked me up with electricity water I even had Wi-Fi available.
They parked me out besides her gazebo where we had a good time visiting. Hope to get to stay there again with them or have them visit me up in New Hampshire
I don't know if it was our beginner's luck or all the hosts around here are so nice, but Lois and John were wonderful. We're new to the RV world and they were wery helpful and took grate care of us. Thanks!
Lois and John are awesome, great visit. Ask about the rules...
We really enjoyed our visit with Lois and her family. They made us feel so welcome. When we left there we were headed to the keys and Lois went out of her way to help us with reservations is that area. A special thanks to her for that help. Couldn't have done so well without it. They are highly recomended.
