Welcome Guests

Farthings stayed with us for three nights to take in the Calgary Stampede. They were excellent guests; Quiet, unobtrusive, and polite. We had some interesting conversations too! They are welcome to return here any time.

Overall Incredible Visit

I can not say enough kind things about my visit with these wonderful hosts at their home in Apple Valley CA. What a wonderful couple, the true epitome of love. They made me feel so welcome in their home and I had the chance to meet some of their family as well. The neighborhood is quiet, near a lot of shops and restaurants, and the perfect place to rest for an evening on the way to or from LA.

Great talk.

Pretty sure I previously left a thank you and reference.

Just a short overnight stay for me this time on my way to LA. Such generous people, thank you!

Even better!

My second stay at the Farthings house and this time I came in late evening, parked my van in the drive way and went to sleep. The next day Mr. Farthings and I sat down for a very and long and entertaining chat in his garden and eventually had to stop, after realizing it went almost for 2 hours and I had to get going on my way back to Las Vegas. Such nice people and thank you so much again for having me as your guest. Until next time!

Peaceful stay

Nice, quiet neighborhood, very conveniently located. I appreciated the friendly greeting and offer of an electric hookup when I arrived and regret that my work schedule kept me from being able to socialize later. Perhaps on a future visit, as I would love to stay again if I'm ever traveling out this way. Thank you!

Thank you!

This was my first time using BW and couldn't have had a better start. Mrs. Farthings greeted me nicely at the door when I arrived at the house and I immediately felt very welcomed. My van was well leveled in front of their garage in their spacious drive way and I had a great sleep and felt very secure. I was offered hookups again and any other help in case I need it, which is such a generous thing to do on top of the space. Next morning I was welcomed by Mr. Farthings and had a nice little talk and a quick tour of our rigs, before I had to go my way. Very nice area and perfect for anybody who wants to have a stop in between on your travels to LA.

I would love to come back again in the future.

Excellent Boondocker site.

Farthings were such nice host, we really enjoyed our discussions with them, hope to see them in the future to return the favour. Thanks again.
