Level, quiet and laughter

We arrived around 6:30pm and were greeted by our host who helped guide us in to the purpose built spot so was very level and let us hook up to his electric.
Beautiful setting in the grounds of their house and surrounded by woodland so very peaceful and quiet.

The hosts were soo welcoming, friendly and had some great stories to tell. We had some drinks with them and were laughing and joking all night.

Great couple, great setting and great nights sleep.
Highly recommend and would stay again.

Nice country stop over

If you are looking for a beautiful very quiet place in the country, this is your place. Our host warmly greeted us as we pulled in and he helped us quickly get situated and set up.

Directions provided by the host were spot on, and we had no trouble finding it. You have to back into the driveway from the road, but don’t let that scare you. The host’s site is near the end of a dead end road and as such, there is no traffic to worry about while you are positioning your rig in the road to get into the drive. Once you are in the driveway it is a straight shot back to a level concrete pad. Heaven!

Be sure to visit Quabbin Park and Reservoir if you are looking for something to do in the area. Also visit Phoenix Fruit Farm during the months of August through October for some great apple picking.

Peaceful and Super Friendly Location

Chris and his family were so welcoming and friendly! He gave us some great places to visit while in the area and was always a text away. We really appreciated the hospitality and will remember his location if we pass through the area again.

Amhurst!

We had a wonderful visit with ricechr! We arrived and there was a nice level pad for us to back on to. They were so kind, and it was a safe place to have our RV for a big rainstorm that came through on the last night. We took a short trip to Boston, and explored nearby Amherst. Our hosts shared lots of information with us over cheese and wine, and we hope someday we will see them again. It was great to make new friends!

Great stay with a welcoming host!

This was a great stay with a very welcoming host. He was available when I arrived and helped this newbie set-up which I greatly appreciated and didn’t expect! The site was awesome, a nice level concrete pad. Water and electric were great to have and easy to access. My thanks for letting me park!

Peaceful and Quiet Stay

More than gracious. We had a wonderful time staying at ricechr. Both were sincere and we had a lot in common. Site was set up beautifully. Lots to do in the area like hiking swimming and site seeing.

Perfect stop along the way.

Chris was pleasant and helpful. Nice location. Highly recommend. Our 5th wheel is 34.5 ft and we were able to fit.

Perfect to visit Amherst

In the hills above Amherst, the location is a bit cooler than the town and located in magical forest land. It was a quick drive down into town to restaurants and museums. The parking location away from the house allows you to come and go without disturbing the hosts. My Verizon service wavered between low 4G and slow 3G with and without my booster at this location. Thank you so much for providing this beautiful space!

Great place in the woods

We enjoyed visiting the nearby towns. The Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory near Deerfield is awesome. It is the best we have seen in our travels. We had a nice visit with ricechr. They are friendly and accommodating hosts.

A Quiet place in the woods

We had a pleasant stay at ricechr’s host location.
The location was easy to get to, a level cement pad and offered 15 amp electric and water. Nights were quiet.
We were able to explore the surrounding area including the Norman Rockwell museum, Amherst and a few more quaint villages.
We will request this location when back in the area and highly recommend it to others.

Beautiful stay

The spot here is just beautiful - and so close to the things I’d come to the area to do...

A quiet spot in the woods which also leant itself to introspection, study and to catch up on some crafting...

WEBs yarn store is only thirty minutes away and has beautiful selection of yarn - for the fiberholics out there, and Amherst is even closer for contra or English country dance...

My small dogs enjoyed walking in the woods a few times each day and marking every bush/tree possible...

Rhododendrons - one of my favorites - are starting to bloom and are gorgeous!...

I met the hosts briefly the day of arrival, and talked more extensively to the mr. of the couple on the anticipated day of departure...he was very interesting and enjoyable to visit with...as I’ve exierienced with other boondockers hosts, we have a lot in common...

I definitely recommend a stay with ricechr!...

Beautiful New England location

Excellent sheltered site to enjoy the first Nor'easter of the season.
Wonderful hosts - hope we can visit in better weather to enjoy the beautiful wooded location.
Thank you.

Five stars for this host and site

Very, very friendly!

A wonderful Boondocker site. Unfortunately we didn‘t met Chris and Lyn, but everything was uncomplicated. The location is in the middle of the woods. But Amherst is nerby. Don‘t miss a Football Game of the UMASS :-) Thanks to Chris and Lyn for the nice hospitality

Wonderfulness in the woods

We had a great time! Our hosts were friendly, helpful and a lot of fun. They had a flat concrete pad for setting up our RV and provided electricity (15 amp) and water. Beautiful surroundings with lots of wildlife. But we didn't see any moose.
