Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We have been truck camping for the past two years and we cannot see ourselves in a hotel room.
Any chance available, we take our truck camper to get away and explore new areas and return to our old time favorites.
Truck camping has allowed us to take our small dog with us who also enjoys the adventure!
We both work full time and cherish the time we are able to hop in our truck camper and go.
We have been fortunate to meet new people and have great conversations along the way.
Life is too short. When we complete one adventure, we immediately begin to plan the next.

WestWithWillow's Pets

Our pup happily travels with us. Willow is a 30 pound terrior/boxer mix. She is a kind, loving pup who loves to give kisses and only barks if something is wrong, otherwise Willow is quiet and you do not know she is around.

WestWithWillow's Hometown

Our home is located in a town that has the highest mean altitude in Massachusetts with a mean elevation above 2,000 feet. Our climate is very different from our neighbors who are 2 miles down the hill from us. We are fortunate that our humble abode is in a remote and private area, but not far from the hustle and bustle of towns that surround us.

Enjoyed having them

I'm so glad to host L, M, and W (and your adult daughter and guest). I hope you enjoyed hiking around Shenandoah. And I hope you made use of the pool house for a little extra "leg room." Come back any time!

Quiet and respectful

Due to the pandemic, we didn't get the opportunity to chat. Very respectful of the property.

Just the Nicest

I was having unfortunate mechanical problems with my motorhome. Even having never met us before, they offered several times to help out. The absolute nicest people.

Wonderful hosts!!!

The rv site at pondview is situated a nice spot not far from the pond and house. It was quiet and perfect for my needs...a good nights rest. What sets this place apart is how friendly and welcoming the hosts are. I felt I was treated like visiting family and can’t express how much that meant to me during this time. Thanks so much M and L for your hospitality!!!

Wonderful couple and location

West with Willow responded to our request almost immediately with clear directions. Our hosts warmly welcomed us, with M going out of his way to make sure we had what we needed for a comfortable boondocking stay, while respecting our mutual privacy. Walking the grounds was a treat, and it was great chatting with them both at their wonderfully picturesque and quiet property.
Thank you L&M for our wonderful first Boondockers Welcome experience.

Great stay, small world

Was surprised that State Parks and campgrounds weren’t open yet for the season and needed just one more night before arriving home after a month of traveling. Mark and Lori were able to host us with only a few hours notice. While chatting we discovered they’re close friends with a coworker! We hope to cross their path again.

Perfect Pandemic Getaway

We we’re looking for a safe way to get out of town and explore a new area. West with Willow responded quickly to our same day request. He said they were digging out from a foot of snow but there would be more than enough room for us! The property is lovely and a space under a big pine tree was nicely plowed out for us. Our host filled us in about a local cross country ski area and said he was available to answer any questions. Www offered us electric hook up, we passed but it was nice to know it was available should we need it. Hope to get back to Pondview post pandemic and get a chance to visit with our hosts! Great experience

Beautiful site, cordial hosts

We stayed at WestWithWillow in our 20 ft converted van. The home site is beautiful. We had a great time talking about travel with the hosts. We want to stay here again.

Lovely, quiet spot in the Berkshires

After accurate and helpful directions from our hosts (to guide a big rig on good roads), we arrived at a beautiful setting near a pond and back in the woods. Our hosts were very welcoming and kind. They allowed us to hook up to electricity and invited us to walk the grounds as we pleased. Site was quiet, private, and peaceful. We had a great view of the pond! Great hosts and place!!!

Great place to unwind

L&M are the nicest, sweetest people. Their property is tranquil and quite just what we needed as we continued our journey. Our son had a blast looking around their pond and my hubby enjoyed a relaxing afternoon just sitting there. We even had a picnic table to eat outside. I can’t thank you enough for letting us stay. The doughnuts are wonderful. I have been wanting to try some and they didn’t disappoint. Thank you again

If you like nature you'll love these hosts site.

The hosts greeted me as I pulled in their driveway. My host was concerned that I would need ac for the night and guided me into a site right beside their 30amp service. As it turned out, the ac was not necessary due to the elevation 2,500+ft. After arriving from the south with temps in the 80's & 90's at night it was a pure pleasure to get a great night's sleep with the windows open to the mountain air. Beautiful site with pond. While this site is a bit off the beaten path, it's well worth the trip. Especially if you were staying more than 1 day. One word of caution: because this site is well up on a mountain in the Berkshires, good brakes on trailer and tow vehicle are a must. Low gear and good brakes are needed on the way down.

Last minute turns into New Friends

Thank you for taking us in at the last minute. We thoroughly enjoy visiting with you both and hope that you will head for Maryland one day and stay with us, we would love to sit around and shoot the breeze until late at night again. Lots of fun, laughs and wonderful new friends.
