Wonderful Guests whom I would welcome back!

These guests were an absolute pleasure to have stayed with me. My only regret would be I wasn't available to spend more time visiting with them during their stay. They were very courteous and I hardly knew they were here. They would be welcome back anytime.

Effortless friendly guests!

I really enjoyed Charles and his wife's short but sweet effortless stay. Smallish car and trailer. Would love to see them again and will hopefully head to Maine this summer to do just that! Best. Fudge. Ever! Thanks so much!! Happy travels ahead....

Wonderful people.

Wonderfully fascinating people. Charles is an incredible history buff. Talked for hours. They even paid for dinner at a local restaurant. What a nice evening.


April 2019

Quiet and kind

Charles and Anne were very kind and friendly. They called in advance to let us know when they were arriving. Due to a personal tight schedule, I was in bed when they arrived and they were very quiet.
I left very early in the morning but got to say goodbye to them as they were packing up.
I wish we could have chatted longer! Maybe I will see you in Maine!!


January 2019

Interesting People

Interesting discussion with Charles and Ann. Especially, enjoyed Civil War discussions and learning of their participation in re-enacting. They are welcome back anytime.


January 2019

Wonderful guests

Wonderful guests. Quietly came and went. I wish we had been able to spend more time getting to know each other. They are always welcome to return any time!


June 2018

Good folks

Happy to host anytime


March 2018

Would like to have had yall stay.

I share a gravel driveway with my neighbor. If you pass my place and go to the back to his heavy equipment area, he has a sign posted which reads "If you can read this, you are within range". This can easily be a bit discouraging to some which is quite understandable. The sign is there to mainly scare potential thieves.


February 2018

Lovely couple and quiet guests!

Only got to meet them for a few minutes when they first got here due to my work schedule. Very nice couple. They are welcome back anytime.

Very Wonderful Stay

This was one of my fav BW spot locations, as it was super close to a downtown area with lots of restaurant options and a beautiful rail trail to walk on. The hosts were very welcoming and lovely to talk to as well, I would love to come back and visit them again one day.


August 2021


We stayed at Ann’s Cottage. It rained from the time we arrived until we left, so we really did not have much time together. However, our hosts were very gracious and welcoming, offering us water, electric and WiFi. Thanks.


June 2021

Nice friends

We really enjoyed Charles and Anne very much. he took us on long walk through town and was so knowledgeable about its history. highly recommended if you are in Augusta ,thank you very much for your hospitality.


May 2021

Fabulous hosts!

We quite enjoyed our time in Augusta thanks for C + A. They were beyond generous with their home and even took us on a short walk through town. The river has a nice rail trail that's perfect for bikes or just walking. The space itself is good for smaller rigs. We parked on the street right in front of the house and was nice and quiet at night. These two are a wealth of knowledge and fellow travelers. If you're in the area I highly recommend a visit. Thanks again


August 2020

Quiet spot with electric

This was a very nice spot we stayed at for 3 nights with 110V electric near downtown Augusta. It was quiet and Charles and Ann are a great host couple with a wealth of information on various topics.


August 2020

A cozy fit

Had a very nice stay and was able to fit my classic B-Class into the driveway but would caution against trying anything bigger. My host was very helpful as I situated the van and I took advantage of the electricity offered.
Chatting with my host we soon discovered we each had ancestors who hailed from the same part of County Kilkenny, Ireland, which proved either that the world is a very small place or the Irish are pretty much everywhere.
The only note I would pass along would be the available level space is a snug fit between two residences so neighborly consideration should be uppermost in mind while visiting. I almost wish I could have stayed longer to take fuller advantage of my host’s generous hospitality.


August 2020

So great!

These delightful hosts were able and willing to accommodate us on very short notice when our truck broke down a few miles from them. Absolutely saved us!
They love their city and are so knowledgable about it's history. Gave us a great walking tour one evening. Nice quiet neighborhood and we loved our stay! Feeling grateful!


October 2019

Very Nice !

Super Nice host. Enjoyed 2 overnighting here. I recomnand this host.


August 2019


Just like seeing old friends. Great stories and conversations. Good food and sight seeing suggestions. Small spot in driveway was just right for us.


July 2019


Charles & Ann are wonderful hosts & their location was within blocks of the Maine Capital Statehouse.
My following comment is NOT meant to be negative toward them or their location.
But unfortunately my 20 yr old motorhome does not have levelers & the street has to much slope for boards & my comfort. So I apologized to Charles & Ann & moved on before my scheduled departure date.
Thank you Charles & Ann for inviting me.


May 2019

Great Area

Charles and Ann were very nice. They gave us alot of info for places to see. Very close to downtown and a rail trail that we rode to 2 cute towns. They met us in the evening for music and wine. Lots to do. The only downfall was leveling our RV. Took a long time with blocks and even then not quite level. Charles and Ann were lovely so if you are in the area I would recommend staying there but be prepared for leveling.


October 2018

A welcoming stay

Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly. They stood out in the rain to make sure we were settled. Would stay there again.


October 2018

Great spot with some great people

Nice quiet place to park, and good folks to sit and have a cup of coffee with and chat with


August 2018

First time to Maine

Maine is just beautiful, and C&A made our time here very enjoyable. They treated us like family from the minute we got here, and we got a glimpse I to their lives and world. You will meet some really nice, hospitable people if you decide to drop in. Thanks for all your help and suggestions.


July 2018

Great spot, friendly hosts

This was a really nice spot to stay for a few nights while seeing Maine - thank you for the hospitality! The hosts were very friendly and made sure we were comfortable, even offering us their shower. Our dog loved playing in the yard. Highly recommend if you're in the area!
