Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We like to describe ourselves as adventure seekers, (when it comes to traveling, not skydiving) taking off with no definite plans exploring new places and meeting folks who are also love to travel. We enjoy listening to veteran RVers who are willing to share and recommend their RV experiences.
Even though we have outgrown the winters in New England, we love the spring, summer and fall. We are approximately 3 miles, ( as a crow flies) from the Atlantic Ocean, one hour from Boston, and 35 minutes from Providence, Rhode Island.
We look forward to meeting new folks!

Glad to have them with us

Almost forgot to comment that we had the fortune of having this couple with us.
It was a in a way, pay back to their hospitality.
I hope we can see each other again in the near future.

We were very grateful to our host for being so accommodating. If you get a chance to visit the brewery that he recommends in his intro please do! We had an unbelievable experience that we both agreed was our most moving out of the 33 nights we were on the road. Spirit Traveler(s) has a beautiful, peaceful property and he greeted us at the entrance to make sure we knew were to park. Thank you for everything!

Wonderful location near RI and plenty of shoreside locations in Massachusetts

Our lovely hosts were very helpful in finding us things to do with kids nearby. Rhode Island is less than an hour away, there is a beach not too far from this location, and the Cape is a few hours away. There is a lot of activities to do nearby, and our hosts are very informative. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming, and fun to share stories with about our adventures.

Peaceful retreat

This is a lovely location in the trees to spend a few nights. I love being parked "in the trees" even though the first couple acorns that fell on the roof made me jump. They have done such a beautiful job with the property, and the recommendations they provided on places to go and things to see were perfect for our family. We stocked up on fresh and local items at Aldenbrook Farm and my kids even were given apples to feed the horse and donkeys and told they could keep the peacock feather they found. Then, we spent a day in Rhode Island (Newport Beach), which is close. We had visited New Bedford earlier in the week, but that is a fascinating spot in close proximity as well. Next time we'll make it to Gooseberry Island! The hosts were very kind and called to direct us on where to park while still at work and then checking in on us before we left after they had their own busy weekend of celebrations. The town itself is very charming too. Highly recommend stopping here.

Country Nights

The location makes for very quiet and dark nights as being hundreds of feet off a country road making for a good night sleep. The location is within 30 minutes max from many sightseeing locations.

Quiet night

Friendly host with good information.

Great folks!

We so enjoyed our time with these folks. Always wonderful to meet new friends. Loved the property and the area.

Sweet Retreat

Enjoyed meeting our hosts and the berries they gave us. Shared some great insights on places to visit and we went to several during our time there.

Great stay!

We had a great stay at The Homestead. The site was easily accessible, level and had ample room for our motorhome and tow car. We enjoyed meeting and conversing with John & Robin. We especially appreciated their suggestions of places to visit in both their immediate area and also along our future route.

7/18/19 stay

This was our 1st time using BW and we will use it again!! These people have gone overboard with things to do and places to eat. We tried some. The stay was perfect and although we did not use the electrical, it was available. The place is so peaceful and the area was really nice. I did see some things on our way out of town that I would like to check out next time I am in the area. Will definitely come back here!


July 2019


What a Great and such lovely couple they gave us plenty to do and see. We will surely be back at the Homestead very soon. Thank you guys


July 2019

Great location with kind and helpful hosts

Our hosts had great knowledge of sights to see in the surrounding area, and were extremely helpful in sharing their wisdom with us. We followed their advice on places to visit during our stay and had an excellent time. Thank you very much Spirit Travelers!


July 2019

On the Homestead

We had a great stay. We enjoyed a conversation around the fire one night. As well as the time shortly after we arrived. The spot was easy to get into. Quiet and peaceful. Had a good nights sleep both nights we were there. Need up leaving while they were gone so we didn't get to say "see ya later". Hope we cross paths again.

What a place

All is true. Much more to do than we had time for. Such a awsome host. They were so kind to my active 7 yo and I am thankfull for that. I highly recommend the cliff walk and bike the way back to your start. Good times.


June 2019

Nice quiet stay

The home is in a lovely wooded location down a long driveway. The hosts were very welcoming and kind. It was the perfect place for a quiet overnight.


June 2019

Great people, great experience!

The Spirit Travelers are exactly the kind of people you hope and expect to find at a BW host place to stay. We were very comfortable and safe. They have plenty of space, graciously offered to help with anything we needed, and even provided us with a list of great things to see and do in the area. One note though, they don't have the electric setup yet as of our visit, so electric is a requirement for you, then you may ask ahead of time if they do have that available.

We visited the Wild Honey cafe and loved it as well as the Alderbrook farms they suggested. Both cool experiences. And of course they suggested visiting the mansions in Newport and that was a jaw-dropping experience as well.

They were even quick to help us with a scavenger hunt we were on by letting us take some pics with some items we found right there on the property and he even pulled out his Harley to let us take a pic on it for one of the items. This couple is super!

Thank you both! :)

Short and Sweet

We had a lovely experience here. We got to chat briefly coming and going. The location is beautiful and so is the area. We would absolutely come back through!


June 2019

Uncomplicated, friendly, recommendable

We just stayed there for the night, but it is a silent and nice place and we were welcomed very friendly by the son of the host who also let us use their WiFi to plan our trip for the next day. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to explore the area of Rhode Island but we re very sure that it’s worth going there :) highly recommendable!

Pleasant Country Stay

We had a fantastic stay. Communication was a breeze. Our host was kind, flexible, and helpful with lots of ideas for things to do and see in the area. We parked on a level spot behind the cabin with wonderful views of the forest. It was peaceful and quiet. Many thanks!

Nice location

Great people and an unbelievable location. I wish we had more time to visit.
A little tight for a big rig but manageable.

Quiet Night

We had a very quiet night here. Although we didnt meet our host he had his son in law meet us and we chatted with him for a bit. We arrived later so went a few miles down to Horse Neck Beach and took the causeway to the little island. We walked on the beach and relaxed for awhile. He also sent us a whole list of things to do in the area.
We would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area.

Outstanding Hosts. We were treated like family.

I had to do a few repairs while traveling through, our host was very understanding and accommodating. You guys are always welcomed at our place as well!

An incredible first experience

Robin and John were awesome hosts! They gave us so much insight into the area and our family had a blast spending time on the ocean. We couldn’t fit in all the activities they suggested into 2 days so they were gracious enough to let us stay a third night. On top of all of that, we had some great conversations with them and their family during our stay. For a first experience with Boondockers Welcome it was simply delightful.

Happy homestead stay

This was yet another wonderful boondocking experience and I’m thankful I was able to stay with these fine hosts. It is a beautiful area and I hope to come back again when I can spend more time exploring. I was concerned I would have trouble finding it based off of their description but my google maps brought me right to it and the host called me around my arrival time and ensured I could find it and left their lights on. They were very kind and made me feel comfortable. I had a great stay and I highly recommend this place to others. Thank you!

Wonderful people

So thankful for their help when April's van quit and she was stuck with no transportation. Cannot thank them enough!!


October 2018

Relax, they gotcha:)

Really like these two and their quiet place in the woods. We didn't get to stay long, but it sure is nice to be greeted by such kind hosts. Thanks for giving us a welcome feeling in Massachusetts:)

Very Helpful Hosts

These folks were very friendly and accommodating, even allowed us to drop our trailer and take off when we arrived early and they weren’t home yet. Had a nice evening visit with them on their front porch. Definitely recommend staying here if a quiet stay in the country appeals.

Very Helpful Hosts

These folks were very helpful and accommodating, even allowed us to drop our trailer and take off for awhile when we arrived early and they weren’t home yet. We definitely recommend The Homestead if you’re in the area and would enjoy a country stay.


October 2018

Nice stay

We had a nice stay and the couple is very friendly and accommodating. They gave us some local knowledge of where to go and what to do that the locals do. It really helped in getting to the horseneck beach area, that is for the public, to watch the sunset.


October 2018

Very friendly

Very much enjoyed staying here. Nice spot in the woods,. Nice gravel driveway. Very friendly and gave me lots of great tips for the area. Would definitely stay here again.


September 2018

Lots of room

This was a very good stay in large area below their house. The place was easy to find and quiet.

Spacious Forest Relaxation Near the Beach

Wonderfully hospitable couple with a tranquil and spacious forested location a short drive from the beach. Our hosts were very flexible about our arrival time as we had to deal with some Boston traffic. Once we arrived, we were pleased to find ourselves in a pleasant forest location off of a quiet scenic road.

Our hosts were extremely helpful with suggestions for places to go and things to see while we were in the area and we enjoyed sharing a bonfire and hors d'oeurves with them.

Definitely recommend spending a night here if you are in the area!


August 2018


This is a quiet tranquil stop in the woods. The hosts are warm and helpful. They gave us wonderful directions to close sites you don’t want to miss. It was a wonderful and peaceful stop in our travels.

Ein perfekter Aufenthalt, bei großartigen Menschen.

Sweetest couple!!!

Oh my. I think I could write a book about how awesome these folks are. First the spot is to die for. Off the beaten path and so quiet but close and within a few miles of the ocean and tons of touristy things to do. Their yard is amazing and they have wine berries growing everywhere! I lucked out landing there when they were perfectly ripe. Great conversation while I was there and we even went out to dinner together one evening. I feel like I've made friends for life! This was my first boondockers experience and I can't imagine it having gone any better aside from the sweltering heat that was out of our control. I hope our paths cross again for sure!


July 2018

Awesome couple and amazing place.

We are a big unit and he was confident getting us to fit in the spot. They are great hosts with such a beautiful home and yard that is nice and secluded. They were super helpful with things to go see and do and also with tools to fix our trailer. The kids loved the yard and grandkids toys. Sure hope we come back again!!


June 2018

Great stay at the Homestead

We could not have felt more welcome. From the minute we arrived to our departure we were treated as members of the family. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed touring the area and paddle boarding on the Slocomb River.


May 2018

Amazing couple with a beautiful house and and great location.

Hospitality at its best!
From day one when they accepted our stay, so willing to help with advice and recommendations of what to do and where to go.
Very convenient location, close to Beautiful beaches.
Lovely couple that made our stay special..
