We thoroughly enjoyed having these guys for the night. We had a nice long visit out on our deck and hated to see them leave the next day. We hope they come this way again soon!

Enjoyed their stay.

We certainly enjoyed hosting Bernie and Emily here at Berryton. They were a pleasure to have around and visit with and we invite them back anytime. Their dog Gus even made friends with our cat.

Delightful people

I am sorry that I didn't personally meet second wind. My children met them and said they were delightful. We would never have known they were there. Thanks for staying and hope to see you again.

Great guests

Had a great evening sitting around the fire! Gus is a real sweetie too. Hope they make it back this way!

Wonderful friendly couple

They only came in for a night but they are such nice people we hit it off right away! We sat outside and chatted for a long while before they left and promised to keep in touch.
They are a pleasure to host and they would be welcome to come back any time.

Very Nice Couple and wonderful Dog

Had a nice visit, interesting couple. My dog even got along with Gus, their chocolate Lab.


March 2018

Great pair

Arrived when they said they would and called us ahead to let us know when they were close. Great pair with a wonderful elder chocolate lab who is friends with everybody. They are welcome back! When they came back the second time, they even picked up the stray sock they left in our dryer from their first, wetter visit!

Lovely Folks

Lovely folks, welcome back anytime.


February 2018

Nice folks, good dog!

This is Second Wind's second visit. This time they had not taken on water from any storms and they picked up the sock that they left in our dryer from the previous visit. They arrived on time and gave us an hour's warning as requested, stayed for a quiet night and were on their way in the morning! They can come again!

Great guest

SecondWind stayed with us a few nights and were wonderful guest to have. Very appreciative, respectful and Gus was a pleasure to have. They will be welcomed to return for another visit.

Great folks (and great dog!)

We found Second Wind to be great guests. They kept us informed about their progress, arrived when they said would and left our place as it was when they arrived. They have a sweet older chocolate lab who hit it off with our little terrier. We recommend them as guests.

Lovely Guests

Gracious folks staying in a tiny trailer, they are welcome back anytime.

Rainy day quiet

My hosts were so nice. Parked in driveway with 15amp elec. They invited me to dinner last night and it was delicious. They offered to have me stay an extra night because of thunderstorms and i took them up on it.
They showed me really cool trails in their backwoods that my dog and I walked on every day, multiple times a day. And their chocolate lab, Gus is awesome and friendly.
Quiet dead end street in beautiful neighborhood. Would stay again and recommend.

Oasis in city

Great stay. My host were more than accommodating and friendly. I got to be the first to boondock at their lovely home.
Quiet street, big back yard and easy acess to town if needed.
I visited Browns Co Park for some bike trail adventure and had fun. Hidden gem.
My 2-night seemed too short.
Thank you for the hospitality.
