Being the change I want to see in the world.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am an introvert who enjoys his privacy, but also feels that restoring common unity among humanity is a pursuit that more people need to focus on. Providing a spot for travelers to rest, without treating them as a commodity, is one small way I can do that. All are welcome. If you're the type that only requires a minimal amount of interaction, that is fine. There's no expectation of bonding here. However, I'm happy to help those who may require additional hospitality.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Should you have any basic vehicle/RV repair and/or fabrication projects, it's likely I have what you need to accomplish it.
Pretty handy with computers and printers. Can probably help you with most PC or printer problems. Know enough about networking them too.
Certified locksmith.
Good cook. Make my own recipe of beer bread I'm well know for among family and friends.
Competent at using sewing machine.
Feel free to ask for help with anything. Or bread, if you'd like to try it.

Quiet country setting.

The host was as nice as can be. Very accommodating. He asked if he could help in any way. Gave a huge list of all the amenities in the area. I would stay there again.

Great stay!

We arrived and we were met by the host who was very welcoming and friendly! He gave us some good information about the area. We visited the area and saw Lake Michigan and we went to the USS Silversides (American WWII submarine) museum. Worth a visit! Thanks for the stay and we had a great time!

GREAT experience!

This was our 1st Boonedocking experience & a last minute trip. Our host was quick to correspond and was very friendly, helpful & shared some amazing homemade beer bread and fresh, home grown watermelon.. We especially loved the sweet Momma kitty, her kitten & visiting with the host. He presented us with a helpful print out with info that might be needed while we stay. This arrangement couldn't have been any better.

Very thorough and kind

As you can see, host provides plenty of helpful details, and even an info pack of area sites that may be useful. Was kind and very generous, far above expectations for a Boondock.

Would definitely stay again if passing through.

Pleasant Quiet Stay

Had a one night stay here when another spot fell through. The host was willing to take me on at the last minute, saved me staying somewhere on the highway. Very quiet here, host shared veggies and some fine watermelon for desert.

Quiet country

Our host was very helpful and accommodating. We requested a same day stay and he was very generous to let us come by right away. He provided us a typed listing of services in the area and gave suggestions on things to see and do in the area. His garden is enormous and we left with a bag of veggies! We enjoyed our stay! Thanks so much!


July 2020

Short but positive stay

We were only there for an overnight, but Boondock Ravenna was a pleasant guy and was very nice in offering us veggies from his garden. There was plenty of room to throw the ball for the dog.

A Slice of Rural Michigan

What a lovely stay! The area was private, the evenings quiet after our days of regional exploration. Most memorable of all was our BDW host! Unassuming and deferring, M was great! We enjoyed his peaceful and hospitable company- and the DELICIOUS, homemade beer bread he generously shared with us. M was kind and attentive to our 2 big dogs as well.
In a nutshell, if you appreciate serenity and simplicity don't pass up an opportunity with this BDW host!
We'll most definitely return to "Boondock Ravenna" if we pass his way again!

Great host!

Very nice, quiet stay. This was our first trip with Boondockers welcome. Host was very accommodating to our needs. Enjoyed getting to know one of his little kitties, and he brought us a cucumber from his garden. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet, and chatting with host. Would definitely recommend BoondockRavenna.

Great host!

We stayed 2 nights at BoondockRavenna. The host is very nice and welcoming! Even had printed info about what’s around for us.
We set up by the pond. Heard lots of frogs at night and our daughter was happy to see rabbits around.
Thank you for the great stay, tasty bread and friendly visit!

Perfect Host

Splendid. BoondockRavenna was a great experience for our family. The host was enjoyable to be around and easy going—he even took me fishing and had dinner with us.
If you’re traveling to the upper peninsula of Michigan, or down from Canada, he’s a great representative-a kind soul like many of us RVers. Truly glad he was part of our journey. Stay here if you can!

Gracious Host!

BoondockRavenna was such a gracious host! We really enjoyed getting to know one another. Wayden Farm is lovely with a natural pond in the front. We parked right in the front because the rain had been so extensive, but the property is beautiful and our host gave us great ideas about the area for site seeing. This was a wonderful experience. Thanks BoondockRavenna!! We will definitely call on you again when we're in the area!!
