Hi !
We live on a 3 acre property with the last acre being wooded with a walking trail. We have a miniature Aussiedoodle puppy and he loves other dogs but because some Boondockers who have said their dogs are friendly but aren’t really or are very protective we have suspended allowing dogs.

We have neighbors next door. Therefore please only run generators during daylight hours. Complementary electricity will be given to those that host other Boondockers. We get many requests for stays three seasons a year. We can let you plug in but we request you don’t take advantage of our generosity or make a small donation if you are running your a/c and or heater.

I love to walk/hike and would be willing to show you parks including the Cuyahoga Valley National Park (yes, Ohio has a national park). There’s a small walking trail on the back of the property. You would be setting up in our driveway next to the pole barn. It has some privacy. We have a campground two minutes away from us and you can get propane and probably pay to do a full dump and/or get water. We frequently have more than one boondockers so please note that you might not be the only one.

Our motto is we try to try others as we would like to be treated. If you have not boondocked before please review the groups rules. We don't mind helping but you're supposed to be self sufficient. We're always excited to meet and talk to other RVers. Please give us an estimate time of arrival so we can try to be there to get you settled.

House Rules

Sorry but we can no longer allow dogs. We love dogs but some people have misrepresented their friendly dogs. If you choose to smoke please pick up your butts. Children are welcome as there’s open space to run around.

Please message us 24 hrs prior to your arrival to let us know about what time you will be arriving. We like to be there to help you get settled. If you’re running late please be courteous and message us.

Access Road Conditions

Our house right is off of S.R. 82. If you are unsure of your routing please ask us to look it over before you get on the road. The road to our house is paved. Our driveway is compacted gravel. We have a driveway that goes back to our pole barn. We have a long gravel parking area along our pole barn. Depending on how long you are is where we can put you. If you're a tiny thing we can put you in the grass overlooking our property by the fire pit.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Room for tow vehicle and camper. We have a large gravel parking area so there is room to turn around depending on your length. If you are towing a car you might want to unhitch before you get here. Once we give you our address google map the property so you’ll be familiar most of the time if you’re a larger rig you’ll be parking on the right (south) side of the pole barn.

Unavailable date.

One of us works at home and will do our best to accommodate you. We're pretty flexible. Please be courteous of our time and give us an expected arrival time with updates if you are delayed. We like to be here to get you settled but we also have a very busy schedule running our businesses. Please note that we get many requests to stay. We have 2 to 3 Boondockers a week and often more than one. Please review the Boondockers Welcome rules.

Great Location

Eric was super accommodating, set us up with an electric hook up, let us use his washing machine, showed me some of his memorabilia, gave us a tour of the area in his restored Westfalia, and brought us to a great ice cream shop. He really set the bar high for future hosts!

Close to Cuyahoga Valley National Park

This is a convenient spot, near to Cuyahoga Valley National Park, where we wanted to do some hiking. I didn’t meet the wife of the couple, but she was quick to respond to BW messages I sent. Her husband was very friendly and made sure we were set with the electrical hookup and offered to fill up a water container for us with filtered water, as we were running low. He also let us add some things to their recycle bin. They have a nice trail behind their house.

Great Spot near to Cuyahoga Valley National Park

The hosts provide a great gravel spot to park. Can accommodate rigs of almost any size.
Entry to the location is easy. Large grass area with a large shade tree and fire ring. Cuyahoga Valley National Park is nearby. Cleveland a short drive. Some good bicycle trails.

The hosts were more than gracious for us extending the warmest hospitality and helpful local information.

If we pass this way again we will be sure to stay again.

Excellent host and location!

Luvinature were excellent hosts. Very convenient location & great setup. We enjoyed chatting with our host in the beautiful yard. He was very accommodating and gracious. Felt like family by the time we left. Our stay could not have been better - & we hope to return.

On my way to 45th HS Reunion

Traveling from Camarillo California to Poland Ohio. My first time Boondocking...a wonderful experience. All set up with a power cord when I arrived. Warm summer night but was able to run my air conditioning for a bit to cool down my pickup camper for which I am extremely grateful for! Quiet, Level gravel pad. Perfect for a quick overnight stay after visiting the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. If you’re in this area, highly recommend stopping. Inspired me to become a host!

My friend and I boondocked at Luvinature's place at the end of a one-month long wonderful road trip in the Midwest and Great Lakes area. It was a real pleasure to meet with the owners of very nice setting in the country, and hear about their passion for vintage RVs. We are thankful for our hosts' generosity, the warmth welcome and the great tips we were given on the surroundings and scenic roads to take.

So nice we've come twice!

This was our second time passing through and staying at the ranch. Our hosts were wonderful! Great flat spot. Close to the national forest. Nice yard to romp in. We look forward to visiting them again!

Great spot and hosts!

Our spot was level, and our pup quite enjoyed the beautiful yard and trail down to the creek! Our hosts were wonderful! They even had a campfire the first night we were there with great conversations as well. We will be back!


May 2018

Felt like Family

We had fabulous conversations, they made us feel very welcome and we could have stayed for days. Thank you so much for helping us out with our truck and sharing your world and views with us. See you in Australia!

Beautiful property, awesome couple

We LOVED staying with Luvinature. Their property is beautiful, great for walking pets and easy to get in and out of. They are so welcoming, full of stories and very helpful. He even showed us a few things on our RV. When we visited, they had several awesome rigs that they restore. It was really fun to check them out. I would highly recommend staying here if you're in the area. Thank you guys for having us!


June 2017

Awesome and fun Host

We stayed with this couple for 2 nights. We have a 38 foot 5th wheel and access was easy in and easy out. This was our first experience as guest and we were inspired by the hospitality and warm friendship of our host.

Incredible Hosts

These two are incredible. Gracious hosts and a lovely location. We spent two days with Amy and Eric and we're sad to leave. I only hope that we can return the favor someday and spend a little more time with this wonderful couple.

Wonderful Stay!

My first time at a fellow Boondockers place and it was great. Great Hosts and a terrific place to stay the night.They even
had a campfire and invited the neighbors for a chat. I won't even go into the tour of their vintage trailers. I highly recommend this welcoming couple.

Friendly Host

We stayed here for 1 night traveling back home to Utah. They were very helpful and friendly. Nice spot to park on gravel the was easy to back into. If we're ever in the area again, we wouldn't hesitate to stay again! Thank You!

Nice spot with super helpful hosts

These hosts are sweet, welcoming and helpful. They have a lovely and huge back yard and we were allowed to park wherever we liked. A big fire ring was supplied with wood and and they even got it started for us! They offered to help in every way possible. I also enjoyed chatting with them and seeing their RV projects. Can't wait to see that airstream. It was such a nice and relaxing evening. Thanks.

Awesome Host

My wife and I contacted Luvinature with a request to stop overnight. They responded very quickly and on very short notice welcomed us to their home. After we got set up and had a few minutes to decompress they came out and we talked and enjoyed their company for a few hours. What wonderful hosts these two are. Even after a mishap that I had they were completely unfazed and friendly. ( I did pay for the mishap as it was totally my fault.)

We HIGHLY recommend this host. We plan on visiting them again and hope we will be welcomed back.

Thank you again and Happy Trails.


June 2016

Wonderful Hosts

We stayed for two nights. Our hosts were so nice and made us feel so welcome. It was very peaceful and relaxing at their place. It is definitely a place we would go back to if we were ever in the area again.


June 2016

Great hosts

We spent 3 days with Luvinature in a lovely semi-rural setting. They had us parked in a great spot, were both easy going and very accommodating. Altho they have no hookup, they do have a dump site. This is a great couple who hope some day to be fulltimers. She loves helping people stay safe, and also likes to find out more about fulltime RVing. He even invited my husband to some shooting practice on their property.


April 2016

perfect hosts

It was our first experience with boondockers they made it a very pleasant experience making us feel at home on their property they were very friendly and welcoming, helpful and informative about the area and local attractions, we had the opportunity to spend some time chatting and getting to know a little about them, we enjoyed the conversations and are grateful for their wonderful hospitality.


September 2015

Perfect Hosts!

Amy and Eric were the perfect hosts! Accommodated us on short notice, came out to greet us when we pulled in and gave us coffee and wifi in the morning! We had plenty of room to park and it was dark and quiet. We are very appreciative of their hospitality and kindness to us.


July 2015

Felt like home

We are on a TransContinentalTrek (Oregon to the Atlantic Maritimes and back) and stayed with Amy and Eric. It was as if we'd stepped into time warp and traveled home. They are hospitable, welcoming, and interesting. Very comfortable digs for us, our fifth wheel and pooch. We hope to cross paths with them again and wish they were closer so we could be with each other more often.
