Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I go by Dick, am an active pilot, SCORE volunteer, serve on local non profit boards. Skier, music lover, hiker, still help our son and daughter in law with their running of Timberlock, a summer family vacation resort on Indian Lake in the Adirondacks. My wife has Alzheimers but is still doing quite well and we are able to travel and boat. This summer we will be heading west with a friend in our truck camper. Also do a fair amount of woodworking in my barn shop. As a former resort owner, there is not much in the way of people and families that we have not experienced. We like people. Have also done a fair amount of boating in our pocket trawler on Lake Champlain and as far as the Bahamas.

Thanks so much

Amazingly Beautiful Place!

We *loved* our visit to Sundown Farm. It was one of the most beautiful places we stayed in our travels through Vermont. The owners are really friendly and accommodating and really seem to just want visitors to be comfortable and enjoy their beautiful farm.

Staying at Sundown had us dreaming of owning our own farm in Vermont :)

Awesome in the country

Great postcard setting, from the tree lined driveway to the awesome mountain views. Very accommodating making sure we were setup with water and electricity.
A second boondocking arrived and we hardly knew they were there.
Dick was a great host that we will definitely request again.

Nice, quiet place

The host was not feeling well while I was there so we did not have any interaction. The farm was a great place to stay with a nice 'sundown' view looking off into the mountains of New York.

Beautiful scenery

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at this location. Hosts were kind enough to let us use electric and water. We enjoyed chatting for a bit, and the breathtaking views of the countryside were awesome!

Captivating Location

Sundown Farm was one of the most beautiful places we have stayed, and the family was very kind. There was plenty of room for my big rig and the sunsets were wonderful. Stay here if you get a chance. Great location!

Wonderful place

On our journey through New England we were allowed to spend 3 nights on the sundown farm. Together with Dick and Bab we also met her daughter and son with a partner. All are very lovely people. The farm is beautifully situated with great views and has plenty of space. We would go back there anytime. Thank you very much. Fredi and Vreni from Switzerland.

Spectacular !

Words cannot portray the beauty at Sundown Farm. Absolutely the best Boondocker property we have stayed at thus far. Wonderful hosts. Highly recommended.

Great people, peaceful farm with magical mists

We were heading north for the leaves and spent a memorable evening at Sundown Farm. Wonderful down to earth hosts and beautiful unending views across the fields. It was rainy when we arrived but morning mists in the distance the next day were absolutely magical. The sunsets must be amazing! Dick and Barb are fascinating people with a zest for life and a true appreciation for all that life offers. Well-traveled and still planning more! Thanks so much for hosting us and we hope to see you again soon, even if on the trail somewhere...XO Colleen and Werner

One of the best views!

We loved staying on this property and would definitely go back. The views are absolutely stunning- one of the best we have had on boondockers welcome. Our hosts and doggy were very friendly and welcoming. The rain put a bit of a damper on our trip but we loved watching the storms roll in over the mountains and rows of corn. The parking was on gravel and it was easy to get in and out. We were sad to leave.

Beautiful, quiet country stay

We had such a lovely stay at The Sundown Farm. We were treated to the most gorgeous sunset of our entire year traveling and so much beauty, peace and quiet. Our hosts were incredibly kind and made sure we were set up and comfortable. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

Sundown Farms is absolutely beautiful! We were parked overlooking the Adirondack mountains and corn fields in a very quiet, peaceful area, and still had a strong phone signal. 🙂. Dick and Barb were a pleasure to meet and visit with and were as hospitable as could be. This place is highly recommended if you are in the area.

Tranquil location.

We never know how some "farm" locations will be to boondock at. This one is BEAUTIFUL, PRISTINE,and PEACEFUL with great long distance views of the mountains. Quick response from a generous host. We would definitely recommend staying here.if you are in the area.

Lovely Farm

This quiet farm is so charming and has a magical sunset view of the Adirondacks. From what I’ve read on other reviews, I sadly missed out on meeting the host, but I’d love to stay here again, so maybe next time!!

Wonderful place and host

We only spent two nights, but the weather and the location was splendid. Not only did our host meet us upon our arrival, but he suggested some places we could visit. I would recommend this place while visiting Vermont.
