Quiet Night

Easy to find level driveway that’s shaded in a lakefront town. This site offered 30 amp electric and water.
Our hosts were gracious and made us welcome. We had great conversations about many subjects. They made many tips and suggestions about the community and Michigan.

We will request this site again when traveling through the area and highly recommend to others.

Wonderful couple - great location!

We enjoyed a quick overnight stay in their driveway. They graciously provided power and water and coffeecake (yummy)! We shared many stories of our families, our travels and our careers. A wonderful couple - hope they come to visit us when they are in CT. Thanks for the copy of your book, it's a great story. God bless you and your family.

Very nice hosts!!

Our stay was the perfect 1st time experience. The spot we parked in was level with easy in and out and water and electric were right there next to our trailer. The hosts were awesome. They visited with us when we arrived, making us feel right at home and made sure we were well cared for and comfortable. We shared common interests so it was fun visiting. We seemed to both have a good sense of spending just enough but not too much time together. They recommended places to eat and shop. We even went to church with them on Sunday, followed by going out to eat together. It was great!!
