Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I worked at a camping resort for 13 years and have finally joined the ranks of RVing. I enjoy traveling in the US and abroad, and meeting new people wherever I go. When I’m not working (bookkeeper/administrative assistant), I volunteer at our local symphony and theater as an usher and ticket scanner. I would like to volunteer and/or foster for a local dog rescue group when I retire in a couple of years. I enjoy most music genres except rap.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I don’t claim to be an expert, but I enjoy trying different wines and craft beers, especially if it’s where they’re made. I enjoy cooking and grilling.

elphaba58's Pets

I have 2 rescue dogs and a rescue cat. I hope to be able to travel with my dogs, while my cat would prefer to stay at home. I very much believe in adopt don’t shop.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I’m a newbie, but I hope to find many great locales!

elphaba58's Hometown

I’m originally from Garden City, Long Island. I have been living in Queensbury, NY for 25 years. It’s a great location between Lake George and Saratoga with museums, theater, pro hockey and many family friendly events.

Awesome Host!

Jan was very nice and welcoming! She even had brochures for us to check out all the local activities! If we are in the area we would stay with her again!

A very peaceful place

Doc and I had a wonderful and peaceful time on the host property. She was very helpful and gave us some suggestions on things to do. We had a few conversations and got to know each a little. I really appreciate her letting us stay on her property. Thank you again

Great host!

What a great host! We were welcomed and treated so well! Our puppies played in the yard with her dogs and without her dogs and had a ball! She was great to talk to and very down to earth. She was really thoughtful about texting us things we might like to do and events going on around town while we were out and about! We felt like part of the family!

Fantastic Host and Pups!

We had a wonderful time chatting and getting some doggy love from her two pups. The site was perfect for exploring the area. She provided power and water, information regarding the area and we shared stories over a glass or two of wine. Hope to host her in CT someday and possibly return to this area this coming autumn. We highly recommend this host!

extended stay

It was raining for the for part of my stay so the host was kind and let me extend my stay so I could experience many of the nature trails in the area. I would have stayed longer but was on a schedule. Grateful experience. Would stay again, no doubt.

Awesome

When we arrived Jan offered us electricity, water and handed us information and maps on the area. We spent 3 nights here. We got to chat each day and she made some suggestions in the area and answered questions we had. She was great! Lots to see and do in the area. If we’re in the area again, we will definitely stay here. Thanks again Jan.

Satisfying on all counts

I had a great time staying at Jan's lovely property. Aside from being generous with her time and information including printed out maps on the area and the electrical hookup, she is a great conversationalist. We enjoyed social time in her Park-like backyard. Also her two darling dogs were a joyful addition for a weary traveler. I ended up staying an extra night.All in all I couldn't Have asked for a better place to stay and I am Grateful for the opportunity to have met her. Thanks Jan, it was fun!

Great stay

We had a great stay. Our host was so welcoming and made sure we had all the tourist info to ensure we had a great time in town. Her location was super close to everything and there was plenty of room for the trailer. Highly recommend staying here if you are passing through.

Great stay!

J was a great host and our dogs all enjoyed meeting one another too! The location is easy to find, the driveway is wide and level, and the neighborhood is extremely quiet. Jan was very welcoming and helped us get acclimated right away. Perfect overnight for us! Thank you!

Wonderful stay - outstanding host!

Elphaba58 gave me clear directions for where to park my rig upon arrival since they were still working. Elphaba58 provided me with a map of the area and locations of some of the attractions to be found. This host worked in the hospitality industry for a while and it shows. The neighborhood is quiet for the most part and Tucker and I slept well every night. I highly recommend this host and location.

Very accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable!

Elphaba58 was a very easygoing BW host! Accommodating to a late arrival time, greeted us with a stack of local brochures and information to help us plan our days in town, and graciously offered us power and water. Great location to get to the Hudson River for boating and into Lake George! Thank you again Elphaba58 for a great stay!

Adirondack suburbia supreme!

Elohaba58 is a very accommodating host! We didn’t need nearly all the help she was willing to offer - she even had maps printed with popular attractions marked! Easy parking, quiet neighborhood. We would have loved to stay longer.

Perfect host

Elphaba58 was the perfect spot for us. We wanted to see the balloon festival in Glens Falls and she had the perfect location. Not only that, she provided a lot of information for us about how we could enjoy the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope we get to meet again when she is able to travel more in her rv. She is welcome at our home anytime!

Great host

It was our first time going to someone place and were shy a bit. But Elphaba58 our host made us feel realy welcome. She even had a little package of local activities and informations for us. She also offered the use of back yard and even provided a ladder to check something on my roof. I would recommend this host to anyone. Thanks again. It was nice meeting you.
