Warm welcome and helpful host. Met all expectations and then some!

Awesome Spot

Lonely pines is an awesome spot. The hosts were so kind and we enjoyed talking with them. The dogs were big fans of the spot and of the hosts. Good location and had good cell service for both Verizon and AT&T.

Relaxing stay

What a relaxing and beautiful place to stay! The hosts are very kind and welcoming. We appreciated the quiet place to base out of to do many activities in the surrounding area. Thank you so much; we would love to stay again the next time we’re in the area!

Great hosts

This was a great place to stay. Dale was a great host and was extremely helpful with the issues we were having with our RV. Would recommend to stay here!


August 2021

Nice spot

Lonely Pines was a great location. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Town was charming, we will be back!!


August 2021

Quiet and lovely

Great host helped us in and got us settled. 30 amp electric, water, dump and a bunch of deer to entertain us.
If you are looking for the above then this is the perfect spot for you!


August 2021

Great night stay

Only stopped here for one night and we highly recommend if you are in the area. The host was nice enough to keep us posted prior to us arriving and was waiting for us at the drive way when we arrived. He helped guide us in and get settled. Area was clean and 30amp provided with no issues getting in or out.


August 2021

Sweet and kind

Such a sweet couple. Met us on the road and showed us where to park. A shaded place to stay with electric, water and sewer. We would definitely stay again if we are in the area!


August 2021

Lovely Area

We stayed at Lonely Pines for 3 nights while we explored the area of Chelsea and Ann Arbor Michigan. The property was quiet and shaded in a grassy spot behind the house. We did not get to spend much time with the host or his wife, but he greeted us at the entrance to the property and got us set up in a great spot. We greatly appreciated our stay !

Quiet and Beautiful

Wonder host with a lovely spot. Host meets you at the road to guide you in. Loved having 30amp service and water and sewer were also available. If your rig is tall( ours is 13’) be aware that the 4 miles prior to the site has many low branches. There is a rather tight spot when you first turn in as well. Site is open with good hard packed ground. Chelsea is a quaint town with a great Main Street full of shops and eateries. We stayed 1 night on our way to visit family. This is a hidden gem and with a 4 night option it could well be a destination spot to see Chelsea and surrounding areas. We stayed in a 40’ motorcoach.


July 2021

Perfect place!

Thank you so much Dale and Lola for a beautiful place to stay a few days! Was a perfect place to be able to visit friends and the Henry Ford museum! God bless you!


June 2021

Tranquil Stay

What a nice setting Dale and his wife have to share with others! Peaceful, shaded setting at the back of their property. It made it possible for me to spend the days visiting my daughter’s family in Ann Arbor (who live right in the city so no parking). That didn’t leave a lot of time to chat with this nice couple, but it sure was a perfect BW opportunity.
PS I was able to fill my water when I arrived, had 30 amp service, and dump was available that I didn’t need to take advantage of.

"Lonely Pines" is the kind of people who gladly helps others along the way. As a single woman traveling alone I can attest that I was comfortable and safe there. Lonely Pines is a peaceful homestead. Lots of lakes around! Lonely Pines is near a historical village; very pleasant to stroll through. I'm very glad I was able to stay there and very grateful for being allowed to stay there. Thank You Lonely Pines!

Autumn colors with rolling hills, lawn, woods

Again I really enjoyed my stay with Dale and Lola. They could not be more friendly or helpful, fun to talk to. Thanks!!! Absolute quiet and peace here with privacy, near state parks with trails, one with dump station year round.

Friendly and gracious

The host was welcoming and made us feel a home. Enjoyed our conversations. Very peaceful place. Close to the quaint city of Chelsea and some awesome bike trails both off road and paved.


September 2020


So relaxing. Easy in and out. Love the option to dump there.


July 2020

Kind, Generous Host and Beautiful Property

This was our first experience with Boondockers and it was fantastic. Our host graciously met us on arrival and showed us where to park and offered the use of his 30amp power. We had a chance to chat a bit and I loved hearing about their journeys to Alaska and Mexico. That evening we got a call advising us to peak outside to see a the deer meandering through the property. In the morning I took a walk around the property which is perfectly manicured and I saw a bunch of beautiful birds (humming bird included). Thanks again and I hope we have a chance to meet again!


July 2020

Very nice couple

Our host was helpful and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you for your kindness


July 2020


We had a very nice stay. The property is well cared for. The host was there to greet us and show us the way to our site. Very welcoming. We loved being able to stay so close to family. We even saw some fawns each evening while we sat outside.


June 2020

Such a nice quiet place here and our dogs love it too.

October 2019


We had a lovely peaceful stay while we enjoyed a trip to Ann Arbor. The host is so kind and met us at the street to guide us in and make sure we got all set up. The location is great in a very pretty peaceful area a quick drive to Ann Arbor. They have a beautiful yard where our kids and pups enjoyed running around and playing. We are so thankful to the generous hosts and would absolutely stay again.

Nice spot with a nice hosts

Great spot away from the road and houses with shade available. Quiet location and the host was friendly and very accommodating.
We highly recommend this one.


September 2019

Beautiful Spot

It was like staying in a small cabin in a small meadow in the woods only with 30 amp power and a sewer hook up. Water was available across the field. Lovely, quiet spot. Close proximity to Detroit and Dearborn. Beautiful neighborhood. Friendly hosts.


September 2019

Very nice stay as always

They are our place of choice for my UofM follow up visits. Pretty, quiet, full hookup. What more could you want?


August 2019

Genuine Hospitality

Host was wonderful and the setting was great! Thank you for an awesome first time!


April 2019

Very nice place.

All the things listed. Very nice people, but we didn’t get a chance to chat much cold, rain, wind, tends to keep people inside. We will be back again, host willing.


October 2018

A great peaceful location

Just a lovely private & quiet spot. Dale and his wife were very accommodating. Electricity, water, & a dump station were available. Our dog enjoyed meeting their dogs. Thanks so much for sharing your space!!!

lovely property to reset

We stayed at Maxwell for 3 days. Dale met us to help navigate his "hidden" drive way to his lush backfield. We had full hook ups (thank you so much!!) and plenty of room to enjoy the trees and birds and let the dogs play. The area around them has lots of lakes and the towns are really quaint. Both Dale and Lola were just the sweetest. Dale showed us his shop (which is amazing) and they gave us a tour of the house that Dale built all on his own. Really the kindest couple. Wish we had more time to get to know them. (Maybe we will have to return for that dinner we didn't get a chance to have.) If you are in the area and need a peaceful and relaxing place to stay this is it. You won't be disappointed!

Amazing Paradise Close to Hell (Michigan that is... :))

Dale is AMAZING! He was such a courteous host. He responded quickly and met us out by the road to show us to the campsite. He was so hospitable - offering 30 Amp and water hookups. He even welcomed us to stay long...and we are! The backyard is very private and our dog, Chocolate Chip, loves the freedom to be off leash. Truly generous hosts!


July 2018


Dale and Lola were phenomenal hosts! Dale met us at the end of the driveway, guided us back the path to the site and helped us connect to the hookups. The site was easy to get to (via a grassy path), private, level, and had full hook ups. They were very friendly and helped with recommending some services we needed. We highly recommend this host!!!


May 2018

Excellent hosts, warm and friendly

The Maxwell's were wonderful hosts. They were unable to be there when we first arrived, but provided excellent directions (and put up flags to mark the entry) into their meadow like RV parking area. We took advantage of the 30 amp electric hookup they offered us. They also had water and a dump station available, which we did not use. We had an enjoyable chat on their patio and were treated to a view of the beautiful birds at their feeders. We highly recommend a stay at their place. They are good people!

Maxwell, Chelsea Mi

Excellent host. Nice quiet area with hydro that was so nice.

Great Place to Stay - Wonderful Hosts

We stayed with Maxwell for two nights in our 35' motorhome. The site was located behind their home. Our host met us at the street to guide us in. Nice open site lined with trees. Everything you could hope for, electricity & water. The location is very close to Chelsea and also great trails and lakes in the area. The hosts are a lovely couple and very generous and gracious.
