Overnight @ Pigeon Hill Nest

Wonderful hosts! Had ice cream and conversation on the back porch. Great friendly couple. I'll stop again someday. Level parking on asphalt. 2 bars of Verizon. Plenty of room to get turned around. Thanks again for your hospitality!

Friendly feels like home

Excellent hosts! Ran out to greet us felt like we were long lost family. Directed us to our spot and we enjoyed sitting outside listening to the night sounds. Accommodated us very last minute which we greatly appreciated. Especially loved being able to sleep in after a hectic week. Coffee, tea and lots of stories getting to know each other in the morning. Thank you so much! * Note to hosts: keep the recipe for the zucchini pizza. Excellent! TY

WOW another great host thru BW. Very quiet country stay. Great set up and host were so nice. Love the evening chit chat on the porch enjoying ice cream. Couldn't get any better. Definitely will stay again if in this area. Thank you very much. "HPYTRLS" and hope to see you down the road. 🚙 🏕

A true blessing!

Our stay at Pigeon Hill Nest was way more than we could’ve ever expected. The hosts met us upon arrival to show us to our spot, a nice secluded area. Our family toured the UTZ potato chip factory and Gettysburg during our stay. We enjoyed ice cream on the back porch one night and great conversation. Our girls enjoyed the yard and wanted to stay longer. We will surely return when in the area again. Their hospitality was top notch. We are thankful for our new friends.

The Pilgrims are exceptional hosts. They made us feel right at home from the start. We really enjoyed our conversation on the back porch the first night. The ice cream offered was a delicious surprise. We will be back. This might be a repeat reference, but we want to be sure word is getting out.

Beautiful Country and Beautiful Couple

Our stay at Pigeon Hill Nest was wonderful. We enjoyed the opportunity to see the area, visit Gettysburg and we had the time to visit with the wonderful couple that hosted us.

Peaceful stop

Hosts are very hospitable and helpful. We visited Lancaster and Amish country. There are some steep hills and tight curves going in but we had no trouble pulling and parking our 30’ trailer. We would definitely stay again if we’re ever in the area.

A Real Blessing

A beautiful, quiet location nestled in the hills of Pennsylvania. The hosts go above and beyond their call of duty. They love sharing what they have been blessed with. We had wonderful RV conversations plus more enjoying laughter together.

Wonderful hosts

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Spring Grove. There is beauty everywhere. And a great diner just around each curve. We hope to come back to stay again, just could not get enough of the warm welcome and hospitality. I feel as thought we have new friends in Amish country. Thank you

Great Hosts!

Pigeon Hill Nest is a wonderful place to hang your hat for a few days, rest or take in some sights. Nestled in the rolling hills, it is a bit of paradise.

Everything is exactly as described. We were warmly greeted by our host upon arriving and they helped us quickly get set up. If you have a big rig, rest assured there is plenty of room to maneuver your rig around. If you have solar panels you will love this site. The site is perfect for catching rays.

Our hosts enjoy traveling, and we enjoyed swapping stories with them the night we arrived.

You will be warmly received by your host, the Pilgrims, and you will certainly enjoy your camping site.

We highly recommend Pigeon Hill Nest. Our hope is that our paths will cross again in the near future. Gettysburg National Park and President Eisenhower home is about 20 miles from here. Highly recommend these attractions, but plan to spend the whole day.

Absolutely amazing hosts!!

This was our first Boondockers Welcome experience, and wow, what an amazing pair of hosts.

They made us feel incredibly welcome and treated us like family!

They were able to tell me the best way to get there to avoid a killer hill.

Very roomy place to park, and helped me get the truck all situated when we arrived.

Enjoyed several pleasant conversations and they were so kind to invite my family to enjoy some ice cream with them one of the nights, and shared with us some vegetables from their garden (dont think I tasted a better tomato)

I'm looking forward to coming around this way next year to hopefully stay with this awesome couple for a few days.

A wonderful location and gracious hosts.

We immediately connected with G&M, they are welcoming and friendly.
We enjoyed sharing stories on the porch over a glass of fresh Meadow Mint Tea. They shared corn, tomato and cucumber, fresh picked from their vegetable garden. There are many colorful birds at the feeders and beautiful flowers all around. A very peaceful location.
Pigeon Hill Nest is a great location for visiting historic Gettysburg.
When we were leaving they gave us good directions for our trip south to avoid the city areas.
We hope to catch up with them in our travels and in Florida.

Beautiful people

It was a pleasure to stay with the Pilgrims and it was great fun to explore their “Three Hills”. A gorgeous location! Their hospitality was second to none and we had such a fine time visiting that it was hard to leave. Thanks so much, M and G for everything. We will sure give you a call if we come this way again , M&J

Another great boondocking experience

As gracious and pleasant a couple as one can imagine. We enjoyed our many visits with Glenn and Mim and especially the opportunity to view the beautiful 1958 Chrysler Imperial. Anyone in the area would be advised to look them up and I certainly hope they can visit us in Kansas one day.

Easy and Friendly

For our first stay overnight with a Boondockers host, our experience could not have been better. Glenn and Miriam welcomed us, provided an electrical hookup, drinking water, and restful conversation. The space provided was level, paved, with plenty of room for our 25-foot trailer and pickup truck. We found it comfortable to stay hitched for the night. They shared their back porch and yard with us, as well as a beautiful, cool, and quiet Pennsylvania afternoon. The surrounding area is serene, peaceful, and semi-rural, with woods and cleared cropland, rolling hills, small streams, and magnificent vistas opening around every turn in the road. We hope that on our next trip to Pennsylvania we will be able to stay with Glenn and Miriam again.

Wonderful first experience with boondockers.com

This was our first experience with Boondockers Welcome and we could not have had a better experience! Our hosts were amazing! So kind and welcoming, and their site for us just lovely!

We enjoyed a peaceful few nights complete with fireflies and beautiful birds. We also had the opportunity to go into Spring Grove and Hanover for some exploring including the Utz chip factory tour!

We enjoyed so much meeting our hosts, who invited us for dessert the last night of our stay.

We are very grateful!

Wonderful visit

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Pilgrims. Fabulous, friendly, welcoming and generous people. We felt very special when we were invited to share Thanksgiving with them and 20 family members. A wonderful and memorable experience. Thanksgiving is not celebrated in Australia.. John taught family to throw a boomerang which was fun. G recommended a wonderful mechanic, and gave us lots of local info. We shared family, life and travel experiences over coffee. Cannot believe we have known Pilgrims for only 4 days - it feels like years. Hope sometime, somewhere we will meet again. A great place to stay if you pass through the area..

Great People, Great Place

It was a pleasure staying with Pilgrims at Pigeon Hill Rest. I had a wonderful time talking with them and sharing stories about their travels and mine. I also really enjoyed walking around the area near their place, a beautiful example of Pennsylvania farm country. All in all a perfect stay.

Very Hospitable

We had the privilege of staying with G&M for a couple of nights. They are friendly and helpful people. We enjoyed staying with them very much. If you have the opportunity to stay here, take it. You too can enjoy the peaceful area and hospitable hosts. We are looking forward to meeting up with them again.

Lovely hosts!

These folks are as good as it gets, super friendly and welcoming. And the boondock site was as good as it gets. We were even lucky enough to have been invited over for dessert which made for a really nice evening. Wish we could have stayed longer, hope to pass through again soon to visit our new friends.

Nice stay

I had a very brief stay. They are very friendly people a d found a level place for me to set up even though they had other Boondockers staying. They offered electric and water. I was very pleased with the quiet surrounding. Thanks Glenn for accommodating me!

Friendliest hosts on the planet!

We were greeted by a lovely couple at the driveway. They helped us set up and plug in. Their property was beautiful and neat as a pin. We were invited up to the house to visit and partake of a homemade sweet.
We had bicycled Gettysburg all day and this spot was a welcome reprieve.
Thank you, Pilgrims!
