Great place to stay!

This was a nice place to stay. Our hosts were very friendly and we had a nice visit with them when we arrived. They helped us with a few “housekeeping tasks” we had to take care of and gave us suggestions of something to do in the area. We highly recommend Our Side Yard.

Terrific stay!

We can’t say enough positive things about our stay here. The hosts were very warm and welcoming. We had great conversations with them, they gave good information and recommendations about the area, and they shared veggies from their garden. The site is level, easy to get into, and surrounded by beautiful woods. We highly recommend this site!!

Virginia is for lovers!!

This couple was absolutely gracious !! Their boondocking site was practically a vacation in itself!! We enjoyed them so much … an easy way about them along with experience and advice about adventuring.

Pleasant, helpful, and convenient

The location was very easy for us to access as we were on our way to Rockland, ME. An extension cord with 15amp service was even provided upon our request. It was fairly quiet and not far off the main road. While I did not meet the hosts in person, we talked on the phone beforehand and they were very pleasant and friendly. I would stay again next time I need a plot, and am in the area. Thumbs up!

A Really Nice Place

Our hosts were very warm and inviting. We liked our parking spot. Lots of room! Beautiful home. Cell service is particularly weak even with our cell booster. Close access to 7 Trees Pond for some great kayak paddling. Would love to stay here again. Thank you!

BW stay in Union, ME

A super stop for us westerners!!! Spent the evening with our hosts. These fine folks exemplify those characteristics of what makes our country so great - people who care more about the greater good than personal gain. It was our priviledge to stay overnight with them.
