Great guests

Such a neat couple, already with so many experiences to share! We were very glad to have been to host them while they were visiting family. Listening to some of their adventures have really gotten us excited to start making memories of our own! They were very courteous, and we barely knew they were there. They are definitely welcome back any time they'd like!

Great Hosts

We would recommend this place to anyone. This was are first boon docking experience and loved it !! We where greeted with open arms. The property was well maintained and away from traffic noise and we felt safe. We look forward to returning if we are in the neighborhood again. Thank you.

Welcoming and friendly

They both came out to show the way to the parking spot buy the porch. Also gave us a nice gift bag. They had us over for nice conversation and fresh watermelon! Thank you for your hospitality!

Perfect hosts.

Welcomed with open arms and given nice clean, level and quiet place to park. Good discussions with a great Christian couple with common interests and life experiences. We enjoyed morning coffee and breakfast baking. Definitely an excellent place to overnight!


September 2020

Hosts full of hospitality

The property was a quaint little peice of land with a large garage and pretty porch at the end of a quiet street. Nice and peaceful place to stop and rest overnight. The hosts were absolutely wonderful and greeted us warmly with a sweet little gift bag and card. They offered up use of the porch, although, unfortunately the weather was a bit frigid to properly enjoy.

Relaxing Resting Porch

12travel+ were wonderful & gracious hosts. After settling on they came and sat and we visited for a couple of hours. A very fun couple with lots of great stories. The second day Mrs 12travel+ took me into their small town as I needed a few items and don’t tow a vehicle. We got along great and I hope to visit with them again either here or where they winter out west! The horses and one donkey located behind my rig in the morning was a bonus to see. My little dog also loved having a big yard to romp and roll around on! Thank you for having another GREAT host! I can’t say enough good things about the folks I’ve met who have hosted me along my travels this summer! 💕🐶😁

Resting Porch was very restful place.

Was greeted by my hosts who were most accommodating. Had a restful stay after a long hot day of road construction and detours. Even presented me with a gift that will remind me of the “Resting Porch “


August 2020

A Great Place to relax after a long day.

We were on a three week journey and this was one of the nicest places we stayed. Surrounded by corn on several side provided a soothing sound when the wind blew through the corn. While the corn was close, it was still far enough away to avoid being covered with pollen. This couple puts a lot of work into maintaining a great site.

Kind couple and lovely plot

This was my first experience using BDW and it couldn’t be been better. 12travel+ were very welcoming and accommodating! Would recommend saying hello and spending the night to anyone who finds themselves needing a place to stay. Thank you both for your kindness!

Welcoming and accommodating

50 amp hookup and topped off our fresh water tank for our 2 night stay. So grateful for hosting my family and I while we travel the country. Sheldon is a cute little town with a pool, skate park and hometown feel. I’d use this host again for future dates.

I really enjoyed my stay at 12 Travels. They are very thoughtful and kind. I was given direction to the bike trails. It was the most amazing trails I have been on. My host were very helpful and kind. We shared many stories together. They are a loving caring couple. The porch was a favorite place for me and my fur baby to rejuvenate and plan our next adventure. I hope to see them again this year.


July 2020


Exceptional host. Pleasant peaceful location. We had a neighbor camper and she was pleasant as well. Gave us a wonderful gift set to take with us. Would recommend to everyone and would stay there again.

Great Place to Stay!

Great place to stay with kids! They have a big patch of grass and picnic table that makes you feel like you have your own front yard. They gave great directions on getting there and he helped my husband back in. We were there for the 4th and people all around us put on a beautiful show. So thankful for this place to rest!

Unfortunately my hosts were out of town. However they had an employee stop by to make sure all was well. I was treated to a neighborhood fireworks show followed by a peaceful night’s sleep. Oh yea...the swing bench on the porch was great and I did find the paved trail that seems to weave throughout the town and bordering fields. Excellent accommodations! Thank you!

Sweet spot

Sweet spot for an overnight or two. Hosts are very welcoming. I would stay here again.

Friendly and helpful

Very nice hosts! Helped us park in a nice even spot and then, despite a persistent rain helped to solve an electrical problem. Good conversation. Happy to recommend this location!

Congenial & accommodating hosts!

12Travel+ are super hosts! Although they had an anniversary dinner engagement they met us on their street to guide us to the correct location. Came back later to visit, we had a great talk. Hopefully they will stop over at our Montana Boondocking location so that we can reciprocate!

My only Issue, and maybe it is just me issue, but there are loud trains in the area. However, they didn’t run on a schedule that had an impact on our sleeping on a Tuesday night.


September 2019


Nice, quiet location with friendly and helpful hosts. We enjoyed the paved bike path in and around town. We stayed an extra day to enjoy the beautiful weather.


September 2019

Quiet and relaxed space

This space was perfect for our quick overnight and would be amazing for a few nights too! 12travel+ was very accommodating and had a nice level spot for us ready when we arrived. Thanks again for everything :)


June 2019

Pleasant Surprise

Nice spot is level, a nice porch to sit on just when you want chill out. If you like to bike there is a nice
bike trail very close. Although we did not meet our Hosts they were very polite and gave us good directions on how to get to their Boondock. If we are ever in that area again we would love the privilege to be able to stay again.
