Great place

Our hosts were very accommodating and we had a great time. Met their extended family and really enjoyed our time there. Very quiet and peaceful setting. Having electricity was a plus. Highly recommend.

Paradise in the woods

Beautiful place to stay. The hosts were very accommodating and provided electric which was very much appreciated. We met part of the extended family and really had great conversations. Location is very close to trains to NYC so easy commutes anywhere you might want to go. Would love to revisit when we have more time. Thank you so much.

Boondocking stay in Hamden, CT

Another great stop for us retirees. Gracious hosts and very interesting family; professionally and personally. We especially appreciated that they hosted us despite having a full house of family guests.

Leafy green long driveway

Beautiful frogs serenaded us to sleep! We stopped here to visit Naugatuck nearby on our way up the coast, and wish we could have stayed longer to chat! They seem like very interesting people, and Kristen was very nice and accommodating. They even offered us electric, which was very welcome! They do have dogs on property so just be aware if you're not a dog person - they were fun though.
Note: Google mapped us to the wrong street - so double-check the address its mapping you to. Waze did give the correct address, so thankfully we did find it without hassle (street numbers on that street didnt match their address either).
Theirs was one street up from where we were mapped to by Google, and easy enough to get to once we got it correct.
Lovely stay and a great first Boondockers Welcome!

Paradise Indeed

This place is amazing! Rick and Kristen were awesome, they greeted us and helped us find the best way to get into the spot. It took us some finagling just because we’re a 30 ft 5th wheel pulled by a really long truck but we got it sorted. The space is super level and the surroundings are gorgeous. Very quiet, and they have 3 adorable dogs. We will definitely stay again on our next visit!

Connecticut Paradise

We really enjoyed our time here in Connecticut and the beautiful property we got stay on while we were here. Our hosts were so generous, and we enjoyed getting to know them a little better. Glad we could be their first Boondockers, and we definitely shouldn’t be their last. Great spot. Thanks again!
