Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a Science Teacher and my partner (now Husband) is in Pediatrics. We bought the 17 acres 5 years ago and we decided to clear and create 10 campsites for boondockers. We have a 5th wheel RV ourselves and enjoy camping. We also enjoy meeting new people when they come to visit and stay with us.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Jack of all trades, Master of none. Built our house except for the black water plumbing, Sheetrock (will never do that again), and high voltage electrical, roofing and siding.

MikeinElease's Pets

Yes, a spoiled and very submissive English Setter rescue dog.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Only went boondocking once in Iowa. Felt like boondocking when we went to the National Parks out west and Acadia. None had hookups.

MikeinElease's Hometown

We really dont have a hometown. We live in a hamlet called Elease, NC. It's not even on most maps. We have a couple of neighbors that live 1/4 mile away. We are surrounded by state forest. We are originally from the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. We moved here for work many years ago.

MikeinElease's Rig

Rig Type: Fifth Wheel

42 feet long

We have a 2012 Infinity 5th Wheel with 5 slides. We bought her because at the time, she was the first to have the front living room. She is a monster that we lived in for 2 years while building our house. We now use her for weekend and summer break camping.

Quiet land, kind hosts

This was an absoutly wonderful stop on our way to Florida. The hook-up was great and the land provided needed space for our kids to roam. Mike was so helpful and fun to chat with:)

The Best!

We had a perfectly fantastic time here! Our host was wonderful. We were greeted upon our arrival and
instantly felt so welcomed. The property is nestled back from the road, private and peaceful to say the least!
We were given many suggestions as to what to do in the area, including a great
vineyard visit! Our host was indeed a genuinely nice person. We will definitely stay here again, hopefully without
so much rain!

Awesome Spot

What an amazing place. Sweet camping in the pines. Secluded and quiet and very dark at night.
Awesome hosts!

Another Great Stay

Unfortunately I did not get to see the hosts this time. Their communication is always great though and I know they are just a phone call away if anything comes up. I hope one day to stay a little longer when time allows.
Again, highly recommended!!

Beautiful and peaceful place to stay

This was our first time as campers with Boondockers Welcome and we were quite spoiled, this location and hosts were so much more than we every expected. The setup is very camper friendly and our stay was very relaxing. Our host was very friendly and accommodating. We look forward to passing through this way again and staying in this beautiful place. Thank you to our hosts, we will highly recommend you!

A true gem of a site

This was my second stay at Quiet and Secluded in Elease and I truly marvel at how naturally beautiful and RV-friendly this place is to visit. There were several other Boondockers but with so much space and a very interesting design, I could drive my motorhome towing my car in easily. The natural landscape, the peace and quiet are so welcome between very long driving days. I really need to plan a longer trip to explore the area and have a chance to once again thank the hosts for providing this wonderful site to us Boondockers.

Beautiful and relaxing

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful treed location. Huge thanks to M. He was very helpful and sociable, and suggested a bunch of different things for us to do in the area. If you are in the area, check them out! We will be back.

Wonderful !

Very nice people that have gone out of their way to create an environment that is ideal for campers. I highly recommend and I hope to get an opportunity to stay there again.
Thank you both !!

Nice and quiet

This is more of a boondockers welcome campsite rather than your typical driveway. They have a lot of sites to choose from with one being electric. I chose a nice pull through and ran on my own power overnight. I met the host briefly as it was dark and raining when he got home. A very kind person and a very gracious person for setting up his property as well as he did. At night it was dead quiet except for hearing the wildlife move about in the distance. Completely pitch dark as well.

I would definitely recommend this location if you are passing through the area.

Boondocking perfection!

This was our 2nd time Boondocking and I think we were spoilt! The secluded location was beautiful, easy to find and to have full hookups was great. MikeinElease is a very friendly / knowledgeable host and gave us some helpful advice on our RV since we are newbies. We highly recommend staying here!

Awesome

What a beautiful, peaceful place MikeinElease is. It was so needed after sleeping - or not sleeping - through Hurricane Michael’s last revenge before heading out to sea. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring, sewer and water. Pine trees throughout the property. I hope to be in the area again so I can stay another time.

Absolutely Perfect!

This was my 2nd time boondocking with my camper. The site had all the amenities and I was able to take my time and learn how to use the waste, hot water heater and the awnings. The site was perfect. You couldn't ask for better! They even had blueberries to pick between the sites! Beautiful landscape, flowers, and fruit. I felt safe and secure here by myself with my dog. Don't let the rattlesnake warning keep you away! Thank you, MikeinElease for a relaxing and perfect time!

This is Boondocking of the highest order

After living MikeinElease I realized how high the bar has been set for great boondocking. From my initial arrival when I was going to park at a distant site, the host, Mike, flagged me down to guide me to a more favorable site. HIs hospitality was wonderful, and the location he has created in his park is as close to being a top RV park as you can come. I highly recommend this site, and hope my travels may lead me to MikeinElease again someday.

Wonderful Host, Beautiful Property

Mike was a wonderful and warm host, very communicative, and went out of his way for us on multiple occasions. The property is lovely. It is easily one of the most beautiful host locations we've been to, and we had a super-relaxing stay, which was just what we needed.

We highly recommend this host location, thank you MikeinElease!

Mike is a great host!

This was our 2nd stay at this location. Great property with numerous sites to choose from. Host friendly and very accommodating. Convenient enough to I-95 but far enough away to not have the road noise. Highly recommend!

Beautiful property, friendly hosts

Perfect location for our overnight stay. Wooded and quiet, with several level parking spots. Many thanks to our generous host for sharing their bit of nature!
