Lovely couple, was a pleasure getting to know them!

I very much enjoyed hosting this beautifully spirited couple at my "Dragonfly Haven".

"When you have love in your heart everyone has joy in your presence," This holds true for Dan and Mary!

I wish them safe travels and welcome them back anytime!

Peaceful

Redtail Retreat was perfect setting to sit and enjoy (birds, pups running, Mayer walk to river) or go explore amazing beaches and food15 minutes away. Was warmly welcomed by hosts and great to share stories of travels given our rigs are similar. Definitely would stay again when in the area and keep in touch if paths cross on the road. Happy travels!

Excellent getaway

We really enjoyed our short stay here and would definitely consider it next time we’re near. Very central. Great conversation with host. Sad we didn’t get to explore more of the farm.

Beautiful Setting

We enjoyed our stay at Redtail Retreat. The country setting and privacy of the site were particularly nice. We were glad for the electrical hookup so we could run our heater because one morning it was 29 degrees when we woke up. We only saw our host briefly because he was working, but he was very nice. With beautiful sunsets and a very clear night sky it was a relaxing place as a base to explore nearby Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, and Ogunquit.

Quiet Spot with Great Hosts

This was our second stay with these great hosts. It's a nice quiet spot in a great location close to the coast and lots of things to do. We're already looking forward to next year/stay when we can, hopefully, enjoy our hosts' company a bit more after all the craziness of this year has blown over.

Great stay!

Loved our stay here! Very private and quiet. Beautiful views from our location! So glad that we had an electric hookup, because it got down to 32° and it was chilly!

This host's location should be kept a secret. Beautiful grounds, peaceful, and quiet. Thank you for sharing such a serene location. Hope to return again in the future.

Peaceful Wooded Site

We had a great sign to greet us with instructions on where to park since the hosts had messaged us that they would arrive later than us. Peaceful wooded setting with great sunsets. Wish we could have had some time for conversations & to share travel stories between us. Our stay here was our dog Jake’s last days & he was happy too! A special thanks to Cheryl for the great white rice she made for Jake as his last meals - you are super!

Such great hosts!

Our hosts were so helpful while we stayed in the area and we were well rested and ready to resume our journey with invigorated spirits when we departed. We Really feel like we’ve been on a retreat and now it’s time to ramble on. We won’t forget your hospitality or the beautiful surroundings, especially sunset. We hope to return some day.

Great People

It was a true gift to spend the night. The sunset, the morning riverside trail walk, the wonderful conversation and very friendly neighbors/dog were all delightful. We’d love to return and spend more than just 14 hrs.
Thanks again!

Awesome stay again.

We were so glad to return and stay when we had more time to relax and enjoy the area. Our hosts were so nice, and explained the local hikes adjacent to their home down to the river. So beautiful here we loved our time at Redtail Retreat!

Peaceful night, thank you!

Our wonderful hosts left us a sign with instructions on where to park and hooking up was as simple as plugging in, totally level. What a wonderful time we had, thanks for the inspiring conversation, hope to return soon and have more time here.

Outa Sight

Our first Boondockers experience after 30 years as Motor home travelers was a real eye opener from the warm greeting from the host to the sunset over the hay field. This is a must visit for anyone tired of being jammed up in the RV parks. The trail winds a little over a mile to the Kennebuck river where you will find a restful seat under 300 feet tall evergreen trees and magnificent oak and maple trees several hundred years old over hanging a small but beautiful river rushing over moss covered rocks. The walk back can take you along the river walking on soft pine needles and leaves. There is also a mosquito proof dinner tent just perfect for a picnic with the only sound being the babbling water. We will be back next year.

It was Too Hard to Leave!

Our original 2 night stay turned into another 2 nights request.
Retreat is a good description for their little paradise, everything
is green, lush and expansive.
Starting at the beginning, the hosts greeted us upon our arrival showing us parking, hook ups, parking was in a level and mostly shaded spot, and they even offered us a swim in their pool.
Amazing hosts! Not only do they have many life experiences to share, they are pretty handy you might learn a thing or two from them.
Danlang, thank you both for opening your home to BW guests! We hope we can make this an annual event and that you will come visit with us someday! Stay well! Safe travels!

The Way Life Should Be!!

We looked for a host for two nights where we might see the Perseid meteor showers and star gaze, and Danlang was the perfect spot with pasture lands, sunsets, and even a river walk on conservation lands.
We really connected on so many levels even before we drove down their driveway. Caring and all around good people, we missed a lot of meteors as we sat together in conversation under the stars. Friendly and helpful, highly recommend and great hosts!

We enjoyed a peaceful stay at Redtail Retreat! The hosts greeted us upon our arrival showing us parking, hook ups, and even offered a swim in their pool.
A fabulous sunset with a lovely perennial garden was a definite bonus.
We look forward to returning, as it’s just a short drive to several beautiful beaches.
Thank you both!

Gracious and Accommodating Hostst!

Danlang was incredibly hospitable to us - came to check-in with us when we pulled in, gave us parking directions, offered us a 30 amp hook up and water. Parking was in a level and mostly shaded spot. Danlang is incredibly friendly and provides good local site recommendations! Easy drive to Portland!

Best first night with Boondocks Welcome.

Our first night with BW. Perfect location for a quite evening after a day on the Maine coast beach. Will have to return to chat and view the property on another visit since we left early for a second beautiful beach day.

Super Friendly Host

Danlang was a super friendly host who was kind enough to take us on a tour of his fabulous yard. We really enjoyed meeting him and appreciated the very private and quite camping spot. Definitely a great place to stay the next time we're back in the area!

Beautiful place to stay

Amazing hosts! Their property is beautiful. Walking the trails to the river is a great way to start the day and grilling while overlooking the field for sunset is a great way to finish it.

Had a lovely time

I had a great time talking with the hosts. They were very kind and have a great location. We had to stop for a couple days to focus on work and we were able to work from their land and easily get to cafes in the area. They also have beautiful lands and a trail that leads down to nice river. Thanks again, we had a great time!

First boondocking/ peaceful night

The location was perfect stopping point for us on Thursday night as we were headed to Acadia on Friday. The host also accommodated our late arrival. Although we didn’t have an opportunity to meet them because we arrived late and left early, they were extremely communicative via the Boondockers site with details and directions. We hope to get back up and use this site again in the future to explore the area.

A beautiful place and beautiful people.

It was my first experience with boondockers welcome and I am very happy that it was with Dan and Mary. Their little paradise is perfect and I had all the space I needed. It was a pleasure to chat with them and I hope to have the chance to see them again someday. Thank you Dan and Mary ... you are welcome at my place in Rimouski anytime you want.

Quiet in the country!

Dan and Mary were so gracious to let us stay at their retreat.Retreat is a good description for the place as it is green and lush and expansive, out in the country. It was fun to see chickens out strolling on the lawn for their evening walk when we arrived. We didn't get to meet Dan but did Mary, who we felt we could have known for a long time, an instant bond.

We hope on one of their trips to California that they look us up!
Thank you for the great stay.

Serene Stay in the Maine Countryside

I had originally requested to stay with my hosts for a single night and was approved shortly thereafter. I contacted them a few hours later as my arrangements to moochdock had fallen through. Dan could not be more understanding or accommodating. My original single night stay turned in to 3 nights and was very relaxing. The property is rural and the boondocking site is next to the garage, about 50 yards from the house. Dan and Mary greeted me and encouraged me to walk around the property at me leisure. Very serene and peaceful location. Very positive experience and highly recommend!

Fantastic stay

We didn't get to spend to much time with Dan and Mary since we are traveling thru and stayed for one night but we enjoyed our stay. Our Google maps had their address in a different location but that's due to Google maps not the host so make sure you read all of the driving instructions. Other than that they are both very friendly and their older dog loved playing with Jag. It is also close to Kennebunkport and Portland so if you are in the area we highly recommend staying with them.

Country Peace

Maggie and I had a lovely, but short visit with our hosts! Maggie loved playing with their furry family and running in the fields. Enjoyed visiting but wished I’d had more time! Turns out we have a dancer friend in common!! Hopefully they’ll come visit me in Louisiana. I promised to teach them how to dance zydeco. 😁

Redtail Retreat

We feel so lucky to have stumbled upon Redtail Retreat. D&M were so nice and accommodating. We were a little longer than their limit and they said they had room for us. We got there much later than expected and they treated us like old friends. If you get the chance to stay here, don’t pass it up. Some of the most genuinely nice people you’ll meet. Plus you might learn a thing or two, They are pretty handy.

Dan and Mary are such wonderful people. They gave me a tour of their impressive farm and gave me fresh veggies. They offered electric and a space that would pretty much accommodate any sized rig. I was so happy to have met such incredible people. This is why this site is so amazing.

Dan and Mary are very awesome hosts. They welcomed us on their beautiful property and told us to check it out. Told us we were welcome to use the screened area and take a dip in their pool. Their calm personalities made us feel at home. Thank you for suggesting we check out Acadia National Park, it was as wonderful as you described. We would definitely stay at Redtail Retreat again.
Thanks for sharing your paradise with us.

A great place to boondock

Our Garmin was off on the address, but when we spotted the red tail sign we knew that we were at the right place. Our host greeted us and showed us where to park and invited us to enjoy the yard with a pool, garden and gazebo. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the gazebo. We appreciated being able to plug in to the 30 amp electric outlet. Our overnight stay was very peaceful and quiet in a lovely rural area. We would love to stay here again in the future.

Wonderful spot to stay

Dan and Mary were wonderful hosts for our first Boondocker visit. Easy spot to park and elec hook up. Dan was quick to respond and welcomed us when we arrived. Their place was close to the coast and easy to explore places. Thankfully they had a pool we could use as the temperature was in the high 90s. 😎
