Very friendly and easy going people.This was our first stay with Boondockers Welcome. Excellent experience in a gorgeous setting.
We had an absolutely fantastic time visiting C&H. We had a natural affinity for each other since we both have Roadtreks. They were very informative about the Coeur d'Alene area.
Their "spread" is in a beautiful wooded area above the city with plenty of room. The outdoor shower is amazing and a great experience... including hot water. C designed and built it himself.
We would love to go back again, and, C&H we sure wish you would take a road trip down into California and visit us!! Cheers! J&M
This was simply just a great stay overnight with wonderful folks! Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Highly recommended to other travelers interested in the area and the local people.
Warm friendly hosts! Perfect for me as this was my very first BW adventure. They have a totally fenced yard and my dog, Sam, loved running all over. I’ll definitely stay with them again!
With pleasure we like spend a few words on this stay. Actualy one day extra as we’d been invited to their barbecue and see more of the surroundings of Coeur d’Alene. Staying with these hosts is really enjoyable with their understanding how to make us feeling welcome guests. Thanks Collin an Holly for all the good things. And if your trip next year gives you the opportunity to turn to Bergerac, you’re most welcome. Also without RV.
We have super days had at this family. We are very pleased that we have met them and get to know. They live in a beautiful environment, with a very much place for the RV. We hope H & C in Netherlands the same to be able to give what they have given us. Robert and Nelleke
Collin and his wife, Holly, are truly in a class of their own. At their home, we showered under the stars in their outdoor shower, picked cherries and raspberries, my daughters drove a 4 wheeler, and we shared dinner with them in a divine oasis that they've created on their land. My daughters also played with their sweet dogs, and Collin showed us his woodworking shop. Our family had a wonderful visit, and we hope to see them again in our travels or theirs.
Collin and Holly were overly generous and helpful while we were exploring their beautiful little town! Their spot is about 15 minutes from the lake, private and quiet, and perfect for boondocking! You can uber from their place, bike if you are feeling up to it, and the drive isn’t bad for RV’s at all. They have a fire pit, picnic table, and plenty of space! They showed us their favorite bike ride and were open and kind! Thanks for the exceptional stay! We’ll see you again :)
Wow! We cannot recommend this host too highly. If we had only known how hospitable they were going to be, they would have had trouble getting rid of us. 😉 They welcomed us with open arms, sharing a beer and a chat on the patio....we felt right at home. There are numerous flat camp spots to pick from, all situated in beautiful leafy surroundings....the ranch grounds are a picture. There is even an garden shower out the back. Town is only five minutes away.
If your lucky, you might even get to share some of Holly’s baking.
Isn’t it a real bonus to arrive as strangers but leave as friends. Let’s hope we stay in contact and perhaps meet up again....Australia isn’t that far away Colin.
Thanks for everything.
We had a very enjoyable 2-night stay with our exceptionally kind hosts! There were several grassy spots offered for us to park our r-pod, so lots of room to put out our chairs. The property is completely fenced so our small dog was free to run around and play with our hosts' dogs. Collinc and his wife were friendly and sociable, so we spent part of the day with them going for breakfast and touring the farmer's market. Very nice trip; would definitely like to stay again!
