Good Guests

Although we didn't get to meet in person, we had good communication with our guests and it was a pleasure to host them. They are welcome to stay at 20 acre wood anytime.

Very Very Peaceful Garden

D & K were such wonderful hosts! We sat and talked and laughed like we had been friends forever. The beautiful gardens really are so peaceful. Thanks so much for hosting us and being Boondockers Welcome hosts. Hopefully we’ll get to stop and see you again on our next trip through.

Beautiful garden!

The super-friendly hosts gave us a tour of their beautiful gardens & we loved visiting with them! They were very knowledgeable about the area & recommended several nearby sites that we really enjoyed. A quiet neighborhood provided a restful night. Highly recommend this lovely place.

Truly a Peaceful Garden

We truly enjoyed our stay at peaceful gardens! Amazing host, so knowledgeable about the area and accommodating during our stay. Wish we could’ve stayed an extra day or two! Hope to see them again sometime. Thank you for hosting us!

Enjoyable conversation and gardens!

I received a warm welcome and friendly chat with good nibbles in these lovely gardens. The quiet spot and the good advice on interesting local attractions were just what I wanted. History, hiking not far away, and a local outdoor sculpture area were all fun to explore. The Lake Huron shoreline at Rogers City and northward were a delight for walking. Thanks!!!

Great Stay, Beautiful Gardens, Small Town

Hosts were on their way home from a trip and we needed to leave early so we didn’t get to meet them. Judging by the care they put in their gardens they would have been wonderful hosts to get to know. We did get to meet their mother who was a very kind, pleasant and helpful woman. If we pass this way again we will certainly look them up.

Hosts were very friendly, and we enjoyed our visit getting to know them a bit and their AirBnB guests too. Very accommodating and kind.

Above and beyond

The hosts at Peaceful Gardens went above and beyond. They welcomed me as their guest and we are now lifelong friends! It was a joy to listen to their stories and get to know them. I'll be back!

Outstanding Hosts

DebbieJean was amazing. The site was clean, level and easy to get into.
They offered fresh water and electricity.
We visited with them two of the three nights we were there, and had a great time.
Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Peaceful Garden Sanctuary

This is one that we put on our list to come back to, and spend the full time at. These two hosts could not have been more welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them!

A restful stay

What a wonderful nights rest following an late afternoon visit with our hosts in their peaceful gardens. Prompt with communication and attentive hosts and a level parking area. Hope our paths cross again.

New friends and convenient location

This couple were such gracious hosts!! We had electric hookup and water access. We sat on their porch overlooking the beautiful garden and had a wonderful conversation. We chose this location for it’s proximity to Mackinaw City/Mackinac Island. We enjoyed our time and would definitely stay again. Thankful to have met two new friends:)

Genuine hospitality

What a wonderful place! The welcoming atmosphere was felt all around us. Wished we could have stayed longer! Thank you for allowing our granddaughters the use of the pool. They had so much fun!

The Backyard oasis was amazing! Evening campfires and morning coffee were such peaceful moments. Conversations were fun!

These two are awesome people. We are happy to call them friends. We will see you again!

Beautiful flower garden and very friendly host

We enjoyed talking with the host and viewing the exceptional view of the garden from the back yard area. The area was quiet and very convenient for walking to through town.

Don't miss this location if in the area!

Serenity gardens

Thank you so much to my hosts! Had a wonderful experience Boondocking at this peaceful and tranquil location. The hosts were very inviting and offered the use of their beautiful pool and garden as well. I was able to see things in Onaway that I would not have seen otherwise had the host not recommended several attractions! This is why I enjoy boondockers welcome as hosts always know the best sites to visit.


July 2019

Beautiful place and wonderful hosts

What a gracious couple. We were welcomed as long treasured friends. Lovely garden. Superb conversation. Best of all worlds.

Wonderful experience

Can’t say enough about these folks. Special place and special people in a special little town. Can’t wait to see you guys again soon! Thanks for teaching us about the Danish concept of hygge!

Perfect locale for NE Michigan!

Delightful, charming couple! They are exactly why we joined Boondockers Welcome. Our spot was perfect. Next to a residential street in the quaint, small town of Onaway. Pull through, no backing up required! Sitting on their patio overlooking the beautiful garden, replete fountains and their own sculptures of flora and fauna, was the perfect end to a busy day of being a tourist in NE Michigan. Thank you so very much for your par excellence hospitality.

Great couple

I made a very late stay request with them due to my own negligence. They responded very quickly even though they were already hosting another party and offered me an alternate location. I had already found a spot (of questionable legality) and was too tired to move so I declined their kind invitation. However I wanted to mention their thoughtfulness and consideration for a wayward laggard on a holiday weekend. Thank you so much!
