Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband and I own acreage outside Seattle about 20 miles. We are both originally from Montana. On our land you can see deer, coyotes, bobcats or bear. I retired a few years ago after a 35 year career as a CPA mostly in the nonprofit sector. My husband is a Seattle firefighter and hopes to retire in 2021. We bought a Class C RV in 2017 and hope to travel throughout the United States and Canada.

Serene and private spot

This was an absolutely lovely spot - so private and quiet. Our hostess met us when we arrived and gave us a warm welcome. Yesterday morning we looked out the window as two deer strolled by. It's got great freeway access and close to major metropolitan areas for conveniences This was our first boondock experience. We can only hope our future ones will this nice! Many thanks to our hostess for her generosity.

Gorgeous place in the woods!

We had an amazing time here at Preston Woods! It’s a beautiful spot in nature that’s super quiet and really peaceful. Our host greeted my friend and I and showed us around a bit. There’s a picnic table and space to walk around. Nice and big flat area that’s perfect for RVs and vans. We had a wonderful nights rest and there was no pressure to leave early which was perfect for us late risers. Thank you!

Amazing Hosts

We loved this place! It was actually our first time using this website and we had such a positive experience. The host was very communicative and informative. They gave us great suggestions for biking in the area. The space we parked at was beautiful and perfect. It's like you're in your own little forest oasis! It's the perfect distance right off the highway and plenty of things to do in the area. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful tuck away home near Seattle

Super family host and delicious well water. Very quiet and peaceful place. Rattlesnake Lake Recreation Area is a great place for swimming with prestine water. We saw beautiful Snoqualmie Falls. Thank you so much for the host generosity.

Great stay!!

We really enjoyed our stay at mlingelkdunont’s property. Really private, flat space that we had no problem getting to in our 29’ Class C motorhome. Enjoyed chatting with them as well :)

Preston Sanctuary

Always, quiet and private. This is our favorite place to stay when we visit Seattle.

Peaceful Nature

Another beautiful and peaceful stay at this location. It is my favorite for when I visit Seattle.

Quite and Peaceful

This was a nice quiet place to stay and very peaceful. The site is surrounded by beautiful trees and is a very nice place to stay. The host was very friendly and came out to greet us and make sure we were doing fine. I hope to stay here in the future.

Peaceful property.

Such a beautiful and peaceful place. The host were so kind. They suggested places for us to go in our travels and we have put them on our schedule. The place they have for you to camp is very level and not too hard to get in and out of. The road in is skinny and steep but we had no problems in out 30ft RV with a 17ft trailer for our car and motorcycle. Definitely worth a do over if we ever make it back to washington

So very peaceful and helpful! Great directions provided and they still met me at the bottom of the hill to make sure I made it up ok as it is a bit narrow! I was welcomed with great conversation and offers to help set up! After some conversation of area trails and wineries she went up to the house, unbeknownst to me and printed off several area trails! So nice! The picnic table was really nice to have dinner at as well! Location is ideal to so much and at the same time you sit surrounded by quite and nature. Lovely spot and would definitely recommend!! Thanks so much!!

Hidden Gem

Beautiful secluded spot off I90. Very comfortable and convenient and incredibly secluded for being so close to the interstate


July 2019

Great, close to Seattle Location

This was my first boondocks welcome host experience. The host provided excellent directions and greeted me with a friendly smile upon arrival. I immediately felt welcomed and sensed a pride of ownership that you cannot find in a public campground or private RV park. The property had a woodsy feel to it, which is well maintained. I was instructed to park my RV in a private area located away from their home. I loved that there's a picnic table beside my parking space because I love eating my breakfast outside in nature. I enjoyed staying at this perfectly level ground with quiet surroundings, friendly host location.

Peaceful and perfect location

Mlingle is a great host and most helpful! Great quiet place surrounded by trees near Snoqualmie falls .. I would recommend it !☺️


June 2019

Beautiful spot

Beautiful spot in a very quiet place. Lots of wild flowers and wild life. We saw a coyote! Easy to get here, follow the directions and not google maps. Had no problem turning around with a 25' rv with a small trailer.


June 2019

Wonderful quiet stay

Our hosts were very welcoming. We loved the quiet spot with just the sound of chirping birds.
The drive up is indeed steep as the hosts indicated with some blind turns but we had no problems getting up with our 31ft 5th wheel and the spot was nicely leveled and even had a picnic table.
We would love to visit again.

So beautiful! So kind!

This was our very first Boondockers Welcome experience and our hosts made it a pleasure. Preston Woods was our base camp for 2 nights, while we attended college graduation activities for our son. It was even more beautiful than the pictures and description! Both nights were very peaceful and it was wonderful to wake up surrounded by trees, lush greenery and wildflowers. The directions to get there were precise and easy to follow and pulling in and setting up was a breeze. Because our schedule was packed, we were only able to meet one of our hosts briefly, but she was very kind, understanding and welcoming. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend it!

Beautiful property with gracious hosts

We greatly enjoyed our quiet stay on Marcia and Kevin’s property. They have 11 acres in the forest on the top of the hill at the end of the road, and they were extremely gracious hosts. Would love to camp in their beautiful forest reserve again if we ever get the chance.

Amazing hosts

A couple of the most welcome people I’ve ever met! Amazing property with great proximity to Seattle. If you stay here, follow the instructions coming in, they are detailed and very helpful.

Wonderful experience

Beautiful place and such hospitality from our hosts! Very sweet couple that loves their home. The place to park our rig was level and surrounded by forest and friendly deer 🦌. We hope to stay again in the future. Thank you!

Access road was a little steep to start but no biggie. We did not encounter another vehicle on the way in but it would be a little tight in spots if we did. The site was a little rocky but surprisingly level. Our hosts were very welcoming, friendly and knowledgable about the area. Preston is fairly small but Issaquah is nearby and has everything you could possibly need to resupply or enjoy a night out. Plenty of good hiking trails in the area. We would definitely stay here again.


September 2018

Peaceful locale

Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Site was very level and quiet. Great hikes nearby including Issaquah which is a cool town. We would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful Preston Woods

After greeting Marcia, we quickly found a nice, level spot for our motorhome. The nights were quiet, the sleep was very good. In the morning, we enjoyed the beautiful forest scenery and the privacy. Marcia and Kevin were both very friendly and helpful. We're very glad that we stayed at Preston Woods!


July 2018

Elegantly secluded solitude.

I delighted in sharing your property with you... especially the forest green and overall natural ambiance. I hope we get to meet again as families. May you enjoy your continuing adventures.

Forest oasis near Seattle

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kevin and Marcia's. They were friendly and accommodating. Their acreage is in a beautiful forest and very quiet. Our site was large, flat and private. We appreciate their hospitality. We hope to see them again the future.

Perfect location

Preston was ideal for visiting Seattle and Snoqualmie hikes. Hosts were very helpful and interesting to talk with. Our young kids loved the acerage.

Great Location, Fantastic Host

We had a fantastic stay at Preston Woods. They welcomed us with short notice and even met us at the end of the road to block traffic so we could easily get through the narrow road. Our space was private and served as a great base camp for our adventures to Seattle and Redmond. Lots of things to do within 20-30 miles. We enjoyed some nice conversation with our hosts and highly recommend them. Thank you for your hospitality!
