Awesome Place!

I had the good fortune to stay at Larry's place for two nights, and a nicer man you will not find! He was quick to offer anything I could need or want to make my visit comfortable, including parking right next to the lake since my van could fit!

Larry is as generous and warmhearted as they come and has fantastic stories about a life lived in beautiful North Carolina.

My only two regrets are that I didn't get to meet his wife and I didn't get a chance to say goodbye and thank you in person because I left early on a Sunday morning and didn't want to disturb the household. Oh and, I would have loved more time to hear about all things North Carolina so I guess it is three regrets! That just means I'll have to go back for another visit again someday.

Thank you LarryJ, you are the best my friend.

P.S. if you stay there, check out Goldsboro nearby, its a great town.

Well, you've got to see Larry's RV trailers. His home-built teardrop is unbelievable. You will get many ideas for your rig - whatever it is. And where the trailers have been is a whole 'nother story ! Our stay was cut short with a development back home, but this will be our go to place near Goldsboro. Thank you so much.

LarryJ is now a friend

Such a great, private spot and a super nice man. We stayed going AND returning from florida. Will be there again the next time we are near.

A quite peace of paradise

Larry was all you could hope for in a host. Friendly, accommodating and helpful. Many thanks for a much needed rest!


February 2021

Lakeside Paradise!

These guys have a phenomenal location, and Larry invited us to sit with them on the deck overlooking the lake!!! Like family! Beautiful people!!! And the kind of location you want to buy a lot and settle down at. Thank you, thank you.


January 2021

Great location

We were greeted by the great host and given instructions on parking on his large lot with easy access to electric hookup. Beautiful location up on a hill overlooking the lake which water level was low for the season. Awesome host who was very friendly! Left the following morning during a thunderstorm and heavy rain with no problems pulling out!

Nice neighborhood-really nice host!

We only had a short time with this host but really wished for more time with him.

He’s renovated his Casita (same type and size as ours) for maximum solar capacity and customized the inside so beautifully. Loved the stain glass windows!

He was so welcoming and open to sharing his Casita and front yard. Hope to come back sometime.

Beautiful lakeside stay with a gracious host.

Larry was extremely welcoming and provided an excellent, safe boondocking location.


April 2019

Quiet, safe place to stay

Our hosts place is at the end of a dead end road. It was mostly level, dark and quiet. Our hosts were very friendly and gracious in parking us in a pretty level sit just off their driveway. Would stay there again for sure!
Thanks for the stay!


February 2019

Great stay

Larry was very kind and helpful. I appreciated the overnight stay and the generous, accommodating attitude of the host. Do be aware that the most level place to park is next to the road and while most people abide by the 20 mph speed limit many do not. The neighborhood is private and quiet so there are only a few cars going by but something to be aware of.


February 2019

Quiet and nice!

We stayed here for a couple days- Larry was great, we hardly saw each other with busy work schedule but we enjoyed the place. Quiet snd peaceful! Thanks Larry!


October 2018

Very nice host and location

We had a great stay at LarryJ’s place. It’s located on a small, but beautiful, lake that we had full access to canoe on, or just sit next to. LarryJ and his wife were there when we got there and were very welcoming and accommodating. He even provided me with some minor materials I needed for a repair I had to make on our camper and gave us a ride to the local Nuese River so we could canoe it. We highly recommend this host site and will keep it on our list of good places to stop if ever through this area again. Thank you very much LarryJ.
