Lovely stay

Our host was so generous to allow us power and a beautiful area to rest and work for a one night stay. We recommend for others to stay here as we feel you will enjoy the beauty that is all around and the kindness of the host.


August 2019

Great place

I thought I did this last year oops
Really great place to stop lots of room chance to see the owner designed house brilliant
Truly helpful people would recommend a stop


August 2019

Great overnight stop

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. We arrived just after a severe storm passed through (they called and warned us to take our time) and easily found Pegasus. We were the third trailer to arrive. It was very quiet and we both got a very sound sleep. I would absolutely stay here again when passing through.


July 2019

Beautiful views private, very generous hosts.

The hosts were very nice and patient with our family of 6. They were very accommodating and showed us around the property. There is a lot of beautiful scenery and privacy. We truly enjoyed our stay and would love to return in the future.


July 2019


What a great place and what wonderful hosts. Host met us upon arrival and showed us the spots he has for RVs. We picked ours and got set up. The story of how 100 Aker Wood came to be is fascinating. We enjoyed several great conversations with them and a tour of the "Castle". You won't go wrong requesting a stay here, just fantastic people living in a Wonderland of their dreams.

Thanks for the unforgettable stay.


July 2019

What a fantastic first experience!

Beautiful location, very welcoming host. No problems getting our 43' 5th in, parked, and out. We shared stories with the host, saw some of his passions, and wish we could have stayed longer. Loved it!


July 2019

Great location and hosts

This was a great experience! The site access was awesome and the site was level. More importantly the hosts were exceptional. Great conversation and shared experiences. We had two things in common, RVing and firefighting. The host's experience as a pilot were very interesting. These hosts have done more in the past 5 years than most people do in a lifetime. The host even took us on a smoke investigation!


June 2019

Awesome !

Beautiful property and amazing host-we hope we get the chance to go there again!


June 2019

Some of the absoulete nicest people you'll ever meet

If you get the oppurtunity to stay here please jump all over it. Absolutely incredible


June 2019

Great Boondocking location

100Akers makes a great Boondocking stop. There is concrete parking, power & water. Our hosts are fascinating people with varied interests and much experience to share. Very quiet location... we enjoyed our stay.


January 2019

Special People Sharing A Special Place

We had an amazing stay with our hosts at 100Akers. The site is as idealic as the story that inspired its name. From peaceful walks down Pegasus drive to watching the horses out in the pastures this is a very special spot that's just plain good for the soul.

The hosts are even more amazing than the site; kindhearted and fun with lots of amazing stories to tell. We absolutely love their fairy tale and hope that our paths will cross again.


January 2019

Great Host

We spent four nights here on our way to Florida. The host was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be returning when driving through the area again.


December 2018

I would love to be able to stay a while next time!

These 2 people are so wonderful and interesting and helpful and knowledgeable about nearly everything! I love them!
You can’t go wrong staying here! I’ve stayed 2 times now and ended up having dinner with either the host or his fellow boondocking guests. I hope I see them all again!


December 2018

Wonderful hosts! fabulous parking setup too!

100Akers was super helpful and friendly and just all around great as BW hosts. I can't thank them enough for everything. I also got to meet up with fellow boondockers there and we enjoyed dinner together and lots of sharing of information was done. Wonderful time overall. The hookup for electric was awesome, and it was quiet and peaceful all night, even with a Pollywog around! LOL
Highly recommend them.


December 2018

Awesome hosts

What a unique and interesting location. It has its own airfield, castle and roaming hills littered with magnificent horses. A beautiful quiet spot to rest during your journey. Wished we could stay longer, maybe next time it will be warmer. We still have lots of stories and pictures to share. Hosts were so accommodating, easy to talk to and friendly. Thank you for everything. Until next time. Enjoy your journey.

How many thumbs up can I give this host

Location - beautiful peaceful
Host - outstanding citizen
Thank you

This is a special place!

Phil was wonderful. What a charming man and a charming, special place. He and his wife have owned the farm since 1995 and have made the place their own. Both are pilots, have their own air field. You can feel the devotion these two unique people have to their "castle" LITERALLY! And the site itself, level and easy to get to. Just about 18 miles from i40 on real highway, no twisty back roads. Getting to the site from the road is easier than it appears, too. Well rested from this shangri la i feel i can sally forth west. Thank you!

Tennessee Foothills

Wonderful hosts and great facilities in the beautiful foothills of Tennessee. I truly enjoyed the quiet beauty of the area, and meeting the hosts.


October 2018

Great stay, great hosts!

The location is easy to find and offers several site options, with hook ups! The property is really cool- horses and a barn, workshop with all kinds of cool "toys," and an interesting house ("The Castle") that the hosts designed! The hosts were super interesting people- lots of stories from their travels! Don't miss this awesome spot!


October 2018

Quiet peaceful evening on the runway.

Lovely place with lots of room. Able to pet the horses. Lots of photo shots. Great sunset


October 2018

Great level spot!

Phil and Margie were super welcoming and excited to have us. They had a nice level spot that was quite and private.


October 2018

Perfect host

A second time Phil accepted my late stay request so graciously and was so accommodating.
We arrived around 6:00 PM and even though Phil was headed out for his evening plans he was there to greet and welcome us. We had a really nice evening walk down the runway/landing strip and watched the horses up on the hill side. 100Akers is such a beautiful and peaceful resting spot. We had a lot of miles to travel and left early the next morning so again we didn't get to meet Margie or spend time with them. Hopefully in the future we can spend some time together.
Thanks again,
Butch & Judy


October 2018

Great Stay

This was a great place to stay as I was traveling through Tennessee. It was a pleasant surprise to stay in a place with a 30 amp service. It was easy to park my small camper in the space provided, then go to a nearby Walmart for needed supplies.


September 2018


We had a very peaceful night at 100 Akers. Phil accepted our request on a last minute notice. It had been pouring rain all day and Phil directed us right under his shop roof what a relief to get off the highways.
Thank you so much 100 Akers stop in to see us if you come to Florida. We will play that game of Sequence, we were just to tired last night after such a hectic day.
Safe travels
Butch & judy


September 2018

Great stay in Tennessee

We had a great 3day stay at 100akers even with all of the rain we experienced. We explored the area and visited the “Secret City” in Oak Ridge. Our host was gracious and had so many interesting stories, giving us a tour of his castle and allowing us to slide down the fire pole! Thanks for the hospitality!


September 2018

Very nice location. Quiet

Very nice stay. Chatted for a short while with the host.

Quiet and sheltered location.

3 Day Fairy Tale!

I had the best time at 100Aker Woods! I saw horses, deer, and even a Little turtle. The Host & Hostess gave me a full tour if their unique home, thier property, and I met a few 4 legged friends as well. My 5lb 4 legged Danni was welcomed by all.
I was offered 39 Amp hook up, water hook up from thier well for my RV, and sewer was also available. My RV was parked along side the plane hanger and I enjoyed a great view of the grass runway and a heard of horses that came down from the hill. One evening while eating my salad outside I found 3 Deer watching me from the hillside. Very peaceful and quiet area. I was the only boondocker on the property as they has space for more. I can’t say enough about my Hosts, wonderful people! I hope I can return, I think I have made new friends? I hope they didnt mind how much I talked? I wont reveal the magical stuff I felt while here, Dont want to spoil it for anyone!


July 2018

Loved my stay

My host met me and pointed out where to park my rig. He is a very personable gentleman who loves his toys. He has two antique firetrucks along with several other toys in his garage. I love old trucks so looking at these amazing machines up close with worth the visit alone.

If you stay at 100 Aker Wood trust the directions provided by the host not your GPS.

Our favorite place on our 8 month journey!

We have stayed at 100 Aker 3 times in the last month traveling around Tennessee, NC, and Georgia. This property is absolutely magical. The full hookups are just a bonus. Phil and Margie are now our forever family and we look forward to seeing them out on the road, or maybe another stop back at their place to fill our hearts. If you are in the area and have the opportunity to spend some time here you will be rewarded with so much peace and beauty. Not to mention all the sweet animals. Love you guys!!!

Little Piece of Heaven

We had a great stay at 100Akers! Phil welcomed us and we had a great visit with him in the morning. This was our first BOONDOCKERS Welcome visit and he certainly set the bar high. He had everything we needed for our quick stop. We would definitely recommend staying here if you are ever passing through Knoxville area!


July 2018

Amazing Visit at 100Aker Wood!

We really enjoyed our stay at the 100Aker Wood for one night! Our host was awesome and we shared many stories with him. The property is one-of-a-kind and he is very generous with full hook-ups. We loved seeing the beautiful horses, property and even the fireflies at night! We would definitely stay again. Thank you!!


July 2018

Best people in TN

These folks can't be described in simple words. Phil helped unclog my shower drain, drove my daughter and I to a concert and brought us into his home like family. We are forever grateful for this website.


July 2018

Simply THE BEST!

Such a beautiful property and AMAZING hosts. We were very late arriving due to some travel woes along the way and they bent over backwards to be super helpful and were extra patient with our delays.
We only wish we had more time to get to know them and really look over their lovely land.
If you get a chance to stay here you will not be disappointed!
Thanks again!

Peaceful oasis with amazing hosts

We cannot say enough about our stay at 100akers. We had full hookups!!! and our own private space. So peaceful and so quiet. We ended up staying with Phil and Margie for 8 days. We were invited into their home like family. Sharing dinners and playing games. Margie took all of us for a day playing with the horses. Phil shared his love of planes and home building with us. So many great conversations and sharing of their lives with us.They have an amazing piece of heaven in the woods of Tennessee. Absolutely magical at night sitting on their grass run way watching the fireflys dance. If you are in the area and have the opportunity to meet them and stay. Go for it!!!
See you both out there on the open road. xo


June 2018

Almost there.

We we're unable to meet at this members property due to storm coming in. We contacted member explaining our need continue traveling. They understood. I suggest our stay be credited to them as only thing missing was us.

100 Acres of Interest!

I stayed a little longer than originally planned because there is much to do in the area. My host was exceptionally nice and helpful during the setting up process. I was parked between two airplane hangers and had full hookups. There is a very long runway of grass in which to walk my dogs and otherwise I was parked on concrete. I saw fireflies, horses and even a deer who eluded my camera! This is a solid site off the highway about halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga with lots of beautiful scenery in either direction.
I recommend this site and the hosts.


May 2018

Unbelievably nice place and people

I was looking for a place to write a review of our stay with the 100 Akers. I guess this is it, don’t see anywhere else. Unfortunately we didn’t get to me Phil’s wife, but if she is anything like him, she must be amazing. Phil is one of the nicest, down to earth and most inventive guys I ever met. He tools us into his house (I should say castle) and have us the full tour. I don’t want to spill the beans and ruin a visit by others. Just be aware that this is not a normal house. It’s custom built and will take your breath away. The centerpiece though is Phil himself. We talked for hours about a variety of topics. I can’t imagine a more gracious host. If you go near his home and don’t attemp to book in for at least a night you’re making a big mistake


May 2018

A fantastic time.

We had a fantastic time with Margie and Phil at the 100 Akre Horse Farm. The beautiful farm, the horses, the fun hike with Nash, their grandson, the amazing castle that Phil designed and built. We feel that they are wonderful host and hostesses. We are so excited to be able to enjoy Boondockers Welcome. We are making many new friends and having wonderful experiences.


May 2018

Perfect hosts

Our stay with Phil and Margie couldn't have been better! We were traveling with our 2yr old and our golden retriever, and they were both welcomed without hesitation! Margie brought some of her grandchildrens toys down for our daughter to play with, which she loved! Our dog Harley made friends with one of the dogs on property and had a ball running all over the place! Margie and Phil are super friendly and welcoming, we can't wait to stop by again and hope to see them on the road!

Gorgeous place!

We absolutely loved 100 Akers! The whole farm was beautiful. Our hosts were more than welcoming and accommodating. They even invited us right into thier home and shared some of the best imported cheese I have ever tasted! Thier horses were sweet and friendly too. This is a place you definitely want to check out if you are in the area!
