Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Prior to 2016, I was a Real Estate Broker who specialized in International Clients and Rental Property Management while simultaneously running a Construction and Handyman Business and manufacturing speciality parts for motorcycles. After suffering a heartbreaking loss, I sold everything I had and on July 1, 2016, I took off on a kayak from the Canadian Border headed toward Key West. I've been traveling full time ever since.

Today, I explore the country via Pet and House Sitting gigs as well as doing Handyman Work and Van Conversions.

You can see some of my travels on my blog:

Very responsive

I have booked this place a day before and the owner is very responsive. Unfortunately I couldnt spent the night as my young son was not feel so had to push back home after spending 3-4 hrs.

Internet works perfect and parked my RV very close to outlet. Very quiet and peaceful.

Thank for letting me to use your driveway as lake was not bad at all. Wish I could stayed longer to walk around the lake.

Awesome Host, Amazing Place

Waterdawg was a delight to meet. He gave us the prime parking spot overlooking the lake, and was a very gracious host in seeing that we had everything we need. And it was great to meet a fellow Ford camper vanner!

We made a same day contact with late arrival. This host was very accommodating to our needs. Beautiful spot on the lake!

Serene and rejuvenating

A northern piece of paradise!

Thank you for letting us stay here. What a peaceful, relaxing place, especially sitting by the lake, reading and listening to the loons. Nice, friendly neighbors. Just an FYI for anyone heading north out of here, through Rutland, the Waste Water Treatment Plant there on West Street and Greens Hill Lane has a free RV dump site.

Picturesque Lake View

Very nice property, very accommodating host. Peaceful and quiet, the perfect location if you want to relax. Parking location is level, water and electric are close by, Wi-Fi is also available.

Thanks Waterdawg!

Beautiful lake property

We enjoyed a beautiful stay at Flutterby Beach. It was quiet and peaceful. We did stock up on groceries before as there is not much nearby. We loved visiting their town and enjoyed their small farmer's market on Thursday's. The lake is beautiful and easy for even children to splash around in. Host was very accommodating and even helped getting us connected to the WIFI. We would absolutely visit again and recommend this BW spot.

Nice quiet stay on lake

Staying at Waterdawg's place was a nice respite from the mosquitoes, black flies and no-seeums in the Adirondacks. It was in a quiet little neighborhood. Just what we needed. Thanks for the stay!


June 2019

Nice Spot

Host was not home but everything is exactly as described. Easy place to back into and lots of room etc. Nice location there on the lake. When we were there very quiet as almost no activity at neighbors. AT&T cell coverage very intermittent first day, but somehow better second evening.
