I was called away so didn't get to meet shurlsmith. But we had a friendly email exchange, she came and found the spot and hook-ups, and left no trace. Hopefully she'll stop back again some day so I can meet her and her puppies.

Amazing host and quite area.

Thank you for being a wonderful host. Shurlsmith and her 2 lovely dogs were amazing hosts. The area is very quiet and big field to park our fifth wheel.

Wonderful experience!

We stayed one night on this lovely property bordered with gorgeous daffodils. The host was very informative and approved our very late request. The field was very nice. We did need a few blocks and as it had been wet, we were a little worried about getting out without tearing up the field. We needn’t have worried. It was fine despite our blocks having sunk. We’d definitely recommend this host.

Friendly and informative

Except for the fact that the country field has no level spots, our stay was peaceful and interesting. The host, her two dogs and us had a nice, and informative chat about this part of the Catskills in the morning, before we drove off.

I had a great overnight stay. The host greeted me and showed me where to park.

Lovely Hostess

Shurlsmith was very friendly and fun to talk to. Her field was quiet and well drained. We were worried about getting stuck because it was raining but we got out with no problems.

Field of flowers

what a beautiful stay... enough meadow mown to park easily, and enough meadow kept for a lovely view. All accompanied by an amiable and accommodating host.

amazing space

shurlsmith's place was so awesome! Several acres in a beautiful country setting, fire ring and all! host could not have been nicer and more gracious and what a great little village, only 20 minutes from the original Woodstock. Would highly recommend staying here if you get the chance. Thanks for hosting us!

Great host, great place!

The leaves are starting to change and if your looking for fall foliage this is your place! Our host and her pups were so much fun. We chatted and she gave us ideas on restaurants, and things to see. She was very accommodating and helpful. We recommend this stop for your fall vacation!
