My home is on a large lot in a nice area of town. I can accommodate a large rig with toad at my front curb where a dump is available. A rig parked with the wheels within 18" of the curb is within the approved parking for any vehicle in front of a house. Also, my driveway is fairly wide, but a bit 'steep' for longer rigs, and could accommodate up to a 34' rig if the toad is unhooked, or a 5th wheel if you are skilled in 'backing up'! Parking in the driveway offers shade and more privacy. Parking either in the driveway OR at the curb will provide one electric outlet, water supply, and a dump for your tanks when you arrive or depart. You will need LONGER electric cords, water hose, and TV cable unless you are able to park your rig in my driveway, depending on the height of your rig off of the ground. Rigs riding close to the ground may have difficulty getting into my driveway. The driveway area is partly shaded, but the curb is full-sun, and if you don't have a long electric cord, you could probably run a 'quiet' generator successfully. I have a large shaded front porch, and a secure, fenced back yard for your pet to exercise under your supervision. My neighbors have been wonderful, and never mention my visitors, so I want to be careful and protect the privilege of providing my traveling friends a nice safe place to sleep in a good area of town, without any worries! See my 'personal profile' about 'me' and you will find lots of great information about what Mt. Pleasant, Texas has to offer a traveler!!
Good paved roads, stop lights, a few 'dips' require a tiny bit of slower driving for a couple of blocks. PULL-THROUGH vehicles will need to park in front of my house, within 18" of the curb, slide-out opposite of street side, over my property. Curb-side parking is permitted for 1-2 days, 'as guests', and very long electric cords, water hose, and 'cable' will be necessary to access Direct-TV dish, water, and electricity. Electricity may require adaptor from large to 'small' house plug on front porch. Grilling, and lawn chairs would need to be up by the house in the shade, not on the front lawn. Grill is available in back yard.
My wide driveway will accommodate a rig with unhooked tow vehicle, because the initial entry has a slightly steep assent, but levels out afterward. My 33" Southwind can safely access my driveway with ease, but it has larger tires and rides 'high', not scraping curbs. That decision can be made upon your arrival.
I can accommodate a boondocker in front of my home almost anytime, unless I am traveling. Anytime I am home, I will be happy to accommodate a traveler either in my driveway or in front of my house at the curb, depending on the size of your vehicle. Please check ahead if possible to see if we have a space available. I am home most of the time when I'm not traveling myself, and will welcome an overnight boondocker, even if I have previous plans most of the time. If I have my grandchildren visiting, or other out-of-town family guests, which rarely happens, I will most likely turn down an overnight guest so that my attention can be focused on my loved ones, and so they will have adequate parking. If you or I have a last minute 'emergency' situation, there is a Walmart within a mile of my house which welcomes overnight parking for RVing friends.
We did not get to stay due to hosts illness but she was so helpful with suggestions for a Walmart near her. Not everyone is helpful from their hospital bed! Thank you and see you in the flip side.
We were passing through from and just needed a place to pull off the highway for the night. TXBX's was just great. Covid rates were high so we never met face-to-face but the phone conversations were pleasant and the driveway was cozy. Thanks!
We stayed back in May for 1 night. Since we weren't there long, I opted to park in the street in front of her house, and ran my extension cable for 20amp power to run the basics. Thanks for the place to stay on our way through!
Even though we didn’t complete our stay because we had tire issues (left over from our last trip) and couldn’t make it before very late. She provided incredibly thorough information about the stay, the weather, and the area in general. The most information I have ever received from a host pre-arrival and it was very impressive! When I contacted her to tell her we would not be able to make it she was so kind. Based on that alone I would highly recommend :-)
Staying with Betty was an absolute blessing! We could not have had a better experience! Our plan was to stay for two days, but after talking a bit upon our arrival we realized we were both in places where we could use the other's help, kindness and support. We ended up spending two weeks with her and making a friend for life! She shared stories and advice about her experiences on the road, was happy to show us around town and made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We still keep in touch and are looking forward to returning to visit her again!
Betty is a kind and generous host! Her lovely home is in a nice quiet neighborhood. I only wish we could have visited together more, but timing and weather got in the way. Thank you Betty, and I hope we see you again!
She makes it better than visiting your mom. Such a wonderful lady with a big heart not only for travelors but as well as animals. She dedicates much of her time to helping others. Her place is easy to find and nice and shady
She was super friendly and had such great stories to share! We know our new home when coming thru mtpleasant she makes you feel so welcomed and so great to hear what she's doing to help the cats/kitties in her community. Wonderful level spot with electric and water
Nice location, thanks for helping us out in the rain. Your spot was sweet and comfy. Hope to visit again. Nice making new friends. Wscottman
Delightful stay and we would like to stay again. This stop was a perfect break for us on our way to Texas. Our host helped us get set up and was very accomodating. Great stay.
Our host was helpful and kind - lots of good stories.
Parked most comfortably in the driveway - quiet.
Another good thing is there is a place to wash your motorhome at the end of the street after the roadsalt trip south!
A really great host for us. We slept 2 nights at her place and she was really nice, offered us a lot of snack for our daughters. We had a little issue with our motorhome's clutch and she called for us to find some help. She invited us for lunch twice. She provided us wifi, water and dumping station. Really nice person and friend now. We hope that we could see her again.
We stayed here for an over night and highly recommend this host. She had water, dump, electric (30 amp), wi-fi, and cable to hook up to and was very friendly.
