We are busy with work and life, but really enjoy meeting new people. We love to travel and recently purchased an Itasca Navion. We have 3 children and 3 grandchildren.
I've been in the IT industry for 30 years. We are handy in many things and if we can't figure something out, we probably know someone who can. We can probably help with any electronics/computer support.
We have four friendly dogs (Tanner, Max, Myles, and Jasper). We also have 5 goats and 1 baby doll sheep.
We've used Harvest Host a few times and have really enjoyed that.
We live in beautiful north Frederick County Maryland. It is a rural area, but only 15 minutes away for restaurants and stores, etc. We have grown up in this area. We are about an hour from Baltimore or Washington DC. If you like history, we are 25 minutes from Gettysburg, 45 from Antietam. Frederick and Westminster are the two closest 'big' towns with plenty of small shops, restaurants, breweries, and bars.

It's always rewarding when we have the opportunity to give back to BDW hosts.
We enjoyed their night here and the great conversation around the fire.
This is what BDW is supposed to be. Please come back again.
Very glad that these wonderful people chose to share part of the evening with us. They were our first visitors and we were very happy to have them and their dogs share out little patch of land for a bit.
We arrived just before dark and our hosts met us, while maintaining social distancing, and helped us settle in for the night. What a beautiful location. We wish we had more time to spend there and get to know our hosts. We are very grateful that they accepted our stay request in this difficult time. We could tell they wished they could be more social, but we all respected the social distancing suggestions. We highly recommend this location and great hosts.
Scenic location and wonderful hosts. We were on our way home from Florida with the covid 19 situation and were so grateful to have a safe spot to stay for the night. Our hosts would have liked to be social and give us a hug, but couldn't , under the circumstances, but we felt very welcome. We highly recommend this beautiful site.
We had met this couple at another boondockers location in Defuniak Springs.it was great to stay here at this fabulous location. There is great hiking in the area and are close to Harper's Ferry. They made us feel very comfortable and we recommend staying here if you are in the area. We look forward to coming back another time.
The water and electricity and board to level were all there waiting for me. I was greeted and checked on without it being intrusive ... and when I mentioned problems finding places to stay that were open this time of year, I was offered ideas I hadn't thought of. I appreciated their experience ... and their wonderful piece of property with a great view of the moon.
Made me comfortable and most hospitable for my short stay.
Our whole family from adults to kids to our dogs thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pfistervile.
An easy access location in the beautiful Maryland countryside with plenty of things to do nearby. Their paved sheltered RV spot next to the barn was a perfect resting spot for 2 nights.
Our hosts were very helpful and it was great getting to know them. We had fun meeting their goats and their sweet granddaughters and our dogs had a blast playing with their dogs and romping in the large fenced in area. (Thank you to the goats and sheep for giving up their larger pasture for two days). 😊
Hopefully we will get to return when we are in the area again and maybe we can meet up in our travels in warmer climates over the winter. Thank you
First, I would like to apologise for the delayed review. We had family stuff going on and hadn't been online.
Second, we would like to express our gratitude for being an amazing BW host. We also enjoyed exploring the area. Thank you for everything!
Still a newbie and got expert help backing up and leveling the bus (something I've never done before). The water and electricity were just what I needed. They were available if I needed them. I benefitted from their experience.
Our very first experience with Boondocking and it was a Fabulous one ! This place is awesome, peaceful quiet and hosts are beyond amazing! We arrived it was dark due to the time of year, they helped us set up to ensure we are all ok, we had water, electricity as needed. Their dogs and our dog bonded right away. We could text them if we had any issues during the night. Got to visit their goats in the morning, and chat! We definitely recommend this place ,would come back again for sure as this was to short of a stay, only overnight! They provided us with good directions to continue our trip. We made new friends and hope we can have them for a visit one day! Thank you so much from the bottom of our heart!
What a beautiful location! Our hosts were very welcoming and gracious! We connected instantly and swapped boondocking experiences like we had known each other for years. The visit was too short but hopefully we will reconnect soon.
Navion Friends Forever
This was a great place to stay. It was easy to park our 5th wheel. They had water and 30 amp electric available. The property was beautiful. But what meant such a great deal to us was how friendly the hosts were! They made us feel very welcome and now we feel we have new friends! This was a real blessing to us. Thank you, Pfisterville!
Can't say enough good things about this stay. Felt like really good friends when we left. If you are fortunate enough to stay here you will remember it fondly.
For us this boondocking experience was a highlight in our travellife. What a pleasure staying at your home and let us being part of your family! We really enjoyed our stay and we hope we will meet you again. Thank you for your great hospitality!
By the way - not just the host, also the place is perfect for boondocking. We went for a hike to the near mountain park, also Gettysburg is not far.
Safe travels - see you in Texas!
What more could we say, we came as guest and we left feeling like family. This was our first time to use Boondockers Welcome and the bar has been set so high by Our host that I wish I had a space for 10 Stars.
Perfect hosts. They let us stay a extra nite. They both made sure that there was everything that we neeed. We had a great time visiting around the fire roasting marshmallows with thier lovely granddaughters. Very entertaining. If you ever get in thier area. Do not pass this stay up. .it is great.
Easy to find, easy to park! Our host was gracious and we enjoyed visiting. Loved getting a little dog fix since we left ours at home. Quiet and peaceful. Also really liked a visit from their goat! Thank you!
A wonderful stay. Had electric and water if needed. Could not have asked for a more beautiful setting and the nicest host. Loved hearing and seeing pictures of your Africa trip. Conversation was great. Loved your furry friends. Thanks again and looking forward to our next visit.
Excellent hosts with a beautiful property. I highly recommend. Thanks again for hosting.
I wish we could have stayed longer! Our hosts were extremely accommodating and very social. We spent lots of time chatting with them and enjoying the company of their 4 super friendly dogs and goats. The spot next to the barn is wonderful because it's shaded from the sun all afternoon, so we didn't even need the AC. Located less than 30 minutes from Gettysburg. This was such a peaceful place, just what we needed on our travels. I highly recommend stopping here if you like good company and a relaxing location. Thank you so much!
Staying with the Pfisters was an absolute pleasure. N is a good communicator and we texted back and forth as we made our way, on back roads, to their house. We visited and shared experiences the next morning (Saturday) and got some great tips about visiting Gettysburg. I just wish we had the energy to follow all their advice, which included the best places for Ice Cream and dinner.
G&N, when you get on the road... come and visit us in California!

What a great stay at a beautiful location! We spent 2 days touring the area including Frederick and Gettysburg. The hosts went out of their way to make sure we had a nice stay. Plenty of room, our dog got to hang out with the goats. We are definitely planning a repeat visit. Thanks for the Pfabulous time!
The hosts have spent a lot of time in creating a super place for RVs to stay and they are wonderful people to visit with. We enjoyed the mornings from The pavilion which is an excellent view of all around. We got to visit with the goats, enjoyed the birds singing and the frogs croaking down by the pond. We spent two pack full days in Washington DC and the commute down there was a breeze.
Our hosts have such a beautiful home. They were so nice and we had such a wonderful time. We would love to go back.
Well we planned on staying for 1 night and ended up staying for 3. The information that we received from them was invaluable. We highly recommend starting with them and look forward to seeing them again.
These hosts went above and beyond when we stayed on their beautiful property. Full of info on things to see, places to eat, road/travel info. So enjoyed exchanging travel experiences with them. Just a joy to stay there.
I stayed in Pfisterville for a long weekend and it was a peaceful, blessed time. They have a paved area in front of the barn to accommodate the trailer that was perfect. Their nice dogs came around and my standard poodle had a blast with them. They were gracious with me and my puppy and it was truly a quiet time well spent away from home.
I had only one night but what a great place to spend it! Easy ti find, get into and settle! A warm, friendly welcome (by Nita), a paved, level pad, 30 amp and water and a beautiful view of the MD countryside. Couldn't ask for more. Thanks to Nita and Greg for their hospitality.
These hosts were really nice and accommodating . My dog was in heaven which is pretty much puts me in heaven . Beautiful yard and scenery.
Beautiful views from their hill top home. Wonderful conversation on many subjects. Plenty of local attractions to visit. Would like to return another day.
Thank you so much for opening your home to us on May 11. The property is serene and beautiful and we enjoyed meeting you both and the pups. Until we meet again. Cheers!
We had a great stay on “the farm.” Hosts were great and the kids loved the dogs!!
We've only ever met nice people through our boondockers stays, but the Pfisters take the cake. They went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of at their site, but also made sure we knew of the best things to do in the area and shared meals with us. As for the site itself, beautiful rural setting, lots to do in the area including Gettysburg. Easy to get to and 4 adorable dogs to play with 😍 and goats!
We can't say enough about how great our stay was. Happy to know we have a wonderful place to return to when we get back to Maryland!
While I wasn’t able to meet the actual hosts of the property, their daughter was very helpful.
The property was beautiful, with plenty of space for my dogs to run around. Electric, water and WiFi. Can’t ask for more!
Would highly recommend a stop here if you’re looking to explore Gettysburg.
We had a very quick overnight stay on this beautiful land. They had the best communication, making sure we were aware of traffic and weather. They helped us ease into our spot and we LOVED their fenced in area to let our dogs run, explore and play with their dogs. We hope we can come back and spend more time getting to know these generous, kind people!
Good communication and quick responses to our texts. Directions for arrival excellent and we were met by the host who assisted with our getting settled. We had some friendly chats and toured their RV. Nice unit. Our stay was quick as we left before daylight, yet it was very pleasurable. Nice family, friendly dogs and all are invited "Down to the beach". We really look forward to hosting them on their trips thru. Leslie & Scott.
We had a great stay at Pfisterville, the host's were so very accommodating, allowing us to stay on a short notice. Such lovely people! It was a terrific bonus to meet the goats and sheep and sweet pets! Overall our visit was excellent!
Parked at the top of a hill with great view. Large area with goats and dogs. Very friendly family.
Very nice and friendly, great spot to stay. Beautiful area, enjoyed a evening of crabs with them and got to meet the new puppy.
Great hosts, thanks for the short notice acceptance of our late request ( turnaround time only 2hrs)a real blessing. Goats, star gazing, and lots of helpful suggestions for our cookstove problems and local sites Thanks again.
This was our first boondockers welcome stay, and it was a great introduction to what it is all about! They were so helpful and responsive even though we contacted them last minute after not being able to find a spot in the campgrounds nearby.
They provided us with a great spot to spend the night, and good conversation about travel, Alaska, vintage RVs, and more :)
Very nice couple. We had a great time with them. Chatted on their beautiful patio for hours. Played with the goats and loved being in such an expansive, lush area with so much room. They helped us solve some leak issues and offered us every tool to do the job. Can’t say enough nice things about this lovely ciuple and their sweet daughter. The perfect Boondockers Welcome experience!!
Host greeted us enthusiastically, introduced us to the goats and dogs and helped us troubleshoot some RV leaks! Just the best kind of hosts possible ! Plenty of room on a paved driveway and with a stunning view of their hilly, lush, country setting. They were very accommodating and endlessly generous.
We stayed here for 2 nights - the site is beautiful and the area is quiet. Close to many attractions in the DC area. The family was very welcoming and made our stay awesome.
The host couple and their children and grandchildren are just wonderful. They were most welcoming and guided us into our spot near their barn.
They have 2 dogs and a grand dog (that they’re watching while their son is on his honeymoon) and lovely goats and a baby doll sheep.
They invited us up to the patio to chat and we stayed up past all of our bedtimes!!!
There is a really nice gazebo that you can sit in a hanging swing and watch the goats.
We will definitely return in the future, when we’re in the area.
