Gotta love a guest who's a good sport and fits right in! We had planned to attend the monthly dance at our local Legion so we invited Bob to come along. There's always a shortage of single men there so, as you can imagine, he was a hit with the ladies. And a hit with us too - we had such fun. Come back any time Bob. Who knows what we'll try to talk you into next time!
Short trip to Nashville and needed to get in the night before. Did a quick overnight with no hookups, and it was great and very convenient--easy to find. Thanks, Bob!
Thanks to Bob's generosity, he opened his Boondocking place for us even though he wasn't home during our travel dates! We were thrilled with the large gravel parking area, complete with water and electric. Also, Watertown was a lovely place to stay...very cute and welcoming! We would highly recommend staying here if you have the opportunity. Bob is so accommodating and responds back in a timely manner. We wish we would have been able to meet him be in person!
We stayed one night in December 2017 at Bob's place, on the way to Nashville, TN. Bob replied promptly. Although the cold night, went out to show us the spot and how to connect to utility and water. The next morning was a surprise, since Bob came to invite us for a Community Breakfast, at his home, where we had the opportunity to meet also his nice friends. Bob is a warm welcoming host. Highly recommended.
.Stayed here in May 2017. I am remiss for not having commented sooner. . I think I was Bob's first guest. He let me stay at his location for 2 nights even though he was going on a trip. To insure my safe arrival and find the location he had arranged for a friend to look out for me. When I arrived I missed the turn into the site but as I circled the block Bpb's friend flagged me down and directed me to site. A nice town. Friendly folks who greeted you on the street. Pleasant librarian who provided info about the town, vendors were very welcoming,
Thanks Bob for hosting our group. Our GPS was a little off we ended up in the bank parking lot next store. Bob rescued us and directed us to his commercial lot across from his house. Bob was very informative about the area and Nashville which helped greatly with our visit. Thanks Bob
We really enjoyed our stay, Bob was friendly and informative. The town was very interesting, and we enjoyed meeting some of the shop owners. Located less than a block away from Bob's, was a very nice laundromat, which was a big bonus.
We planned to stay at Bob's location for 3 nights however, due to truck problems we had to stay an extra day. It was so nice to have a safe and convenient location while getting our truck repaired and touring Nashville. Bob was a friendly and helpful host and well thought of in the town which made the residents friendly to us. Thanks ever so much!!!!
Very nice and helpful host. The place is located in a very nice little town and we had a wonderful Halloween evening! Hopefully Bob told us about as we are french travelerd and discovering the country.... It was nice to meet Bob and speak with. Thanks again!
This Boondocker lives outside of Nashville within driving distance of the Grand Ole Opry. He recently purchased a RoadTrek, which is what we have, so hope to see him at a RoadTrek Rally which will be at our place in January of 2018. He was a very gracious host and did everything he could to make us feel welcome. We called him at the last minute, and even though he was very involved with a festival in his home town he allowed us to camp at his place. The accommodations are first class with provisions for water, electric, and sewer. Lives only a block from downtown in an historic home in a quaint little town so much to do and see if you have the time. We would highly recommend this Boondocker to anyone.
Wonderfully accommodating and the town is beautiful. The people are so friendly and helpful. Thank you Bob for allowing me to boondock and experience this awesome small Tennessee town.
