These folks are welcome back anytime.

The ideal guests to have hosted. They provided an ETA, arrived and got themselves setup without issues. Both quiet and respectful of the property, we forgot they where even there for the night. A delightful couple, we'd look forward to hosting them again at anytime. Stay healthy and safe travels my friends!

Seasoned hosts becoming guests

Brook side boondockers are the guests everyone wants. Very generous folks now trying out the guest side of boondockers welcome.
They are welcome here anytime.

Just their Motorhome stayed

This was another good way to use Boondockers. This couple had friends to stay with in San Antonio but just wanted a place to park their motorhome for several days. And we are in China till next spring so I only met Brook side via text messages and viewing on my security cameras. They also had this plan since last year and then when the time drew near booked the stay.

Nice folks & beautiful location

It was great to stay at Brook side. Unfortunately we weren’t able to visit much with the host. They are super nice folks. The location was great with shade in a country setting.
We hope to stay here again.

A Very Pleasant Stay

What a wonderful couple and location! Communication before arrival was excellent and once we arrive we were greeted so warmly that it felt like home.
We were directed to our spot for the next two nights; it was level with lots of shade. There was some road noise during the day but very quiet during the night.
Surrounded by their beautifully serene gardens, and with a near full moon rising it made for a perfect night to share stories about our travels around their lovely fire ring.
There is so much to do within an hours distance and we only scratched the surface, we'll surely be back if they accept us!
Thank you so much Brook side, for your kindness and generosity, for sharing your time and your wonderful home.

Wonderful stay!

We had a great stay at Brookside! The hosts were very welcoming. They brought us homemade zucchini bread, and they had many recommendations of things to do in the area. We will definitely stay again if we're in the area.

Wonderful

Coming from the heat in the south, it was wonderful having a shady, lovely setting for the evening and overnight. The host provided an electrical chord which was like cotton candy for our 23 foot rv! The parking spot was very flat gravel and private. The red barn, brook, apple tree with red apples provided a scenic back drop. Our first Boondockers experience was terrific! Thank you Brookside!

Smooth 1st time using Boondockers Welcome

This was our 1st time using Boondockers Welcome and it couldn’t have gone any smoother. Our host were wonderful caring people. We were met at the driveway entrance and directed where to park. We were given an electric cord to hook up and invited to join them and family around the fire later that evening. We had a wonderful evening.
These are a truly wonderful caring couple. Thank you again

Thank you for your wonderful set-up.

So nice and what fun sitting out back with lights and internet connection. Beautiful yard. Appreciate your time and energy for the evening. We had a quiet night and got our early start, just as planned. Thank you.

Very grateful for the wonderful stay!

Brook Side is such a wonderful BW host! They are so hospitable and have such a beautiful, rustic property. We were invited over for refreshments and chat, learned of some of the places they have visited on their RV travels, and now we want to visit some of the same destinations. They have a military background and so do we, so that was another point of common interest. We requested our stay at Brook Side because we were having difficulty finding accommodations that worked well with our itinerary; so happy that we did! What a gem! If we are ever in the area and need a place to stay for a couple of nights, we would be so pleased to stay here again!

Excellent hosts

Beautiful wooded hillside home with a level "spare" driveway to park an rv in. Friendly and personable hosts - we couldn't have been happier.

Wonderful hosts!

We couldn’t have been happier with this beautiful brook-side location - easy to find and really peaceful. Our hosts were so gracious, and though schedules didn’t permit, we would’ve loved to spend some time getting to know them. We hope to visit again!

Nice quiet location with great hosts!

This was a short one-night stay, but the hosts couldn't have been nicer! Even though they had a lot going on the day we stayed, the husband took the time to provide power and chat with us about lots of interesting topics. We would have really enjoyed chatting around the firepit - if only the weather would have cooperated. Oh well... maybe next time!

Nice location, pleasant people!

We enjoyed our night at Brookside. Found a level spot on the trail below their house and joined them at their fire pit for conversations about travel and places. Thanks!

The perfect spot to stop!

This delightfully friendly couple immediately made us feel at home. The place to park is level beside a small brook under the trees, private and very quiet. We enjoyed a wonderful conversation about the pleasures of travel and meeting new people across the country as we all sat around their fire ring in the evening. With an invitation to come again, we definitely will.

Kind and gracious hosts.

I spent two nights parked at their home which is a beautiful property. Saw wild turkeys running around the backyard. It’s next to a stream and the late colors were beautiful. We had a couple of dinners together and great conversation. Like many RVers, they are well-traveled and gave me new ideas for locations to consider. They also helped me do a partial winterization of my trailer since temps were dropping. Really enjoyed the stay.

This is great place. Nice hosts,quiet location, flat and dry. They have a beautiful home and land, near I84 but rural feeling. Highly recommend!
