Rural setting in gateway to Finger Lakes

Ultra Host

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am a regular RV'er and owner of a Winnebago View. Our setting is not the most scenic but we are only about 5 miles off I 86 and 20 minutes south of Watkins Glen. We are in a valley away from most traffic with plenty of deer, fox and other critters to entertain. Our hobbies include boating, kayaking, car restoration and dog rescue.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I have acquired and eclectic set of hobbies over the years and would be happy to talk about anything really. I'm an engineer working in manufacturing. My husband restores and races cars. I have done lots of running and triathlons. At home I have done scrapbooking, quilting, music and flower gardening. I have been heavily involved with dog rescue.

Litwilerak's Pets

We have 5 shelties and may have foster dogs. Our large fenced yard is not far from the parking spot and can we used like a dog park to exercise dogs during a visit. If we know ahead, we can keep the home dogs in a separate area. When I travel, they are often with me, but not always...or sometimes i pick one or two for a particular trip.

Great Guest

Litwilerak kept us informed about their arrival. We met them in our driveway and they easily parked by the trees and flowers. They were off early the next morning. Great guests to have!

Nice family and we now have new friends. Safe travels...


July 2020

Welcome anytime

I'm sorry I didn't get to this reference sooner because my memory fails me. 😔 I don't recall being able to visit with these folks but I imagine with this gentleman and my husband being "car guys" they must have had good conversation. Please stay again if you are in The Dells area!

Quick Stay

We were sorry we couldn’t put her back farther from the road for a quieter evening, but her and her pups were great guests. Arrived as planned. Communicated clearly along the way. Cleaned up as needed. Left early to get to an appointment. Welcome back any time.

Convenient one night stop

Found the location easily using the GPS coordinates provided by host. Met our host briefly upon arrival, showed us where we could park and gave us a lot of suggestions on places to visit nearby.

Dorning visit

Location was convient, quite gravel area, easy to get in and out. Saw a doe & her twins in the early evening. It was a nice overnite stay on our travels.

Great stay

This was a great place to stay...such beauty in the farmlands! The host was so nice and friendly and she was a wealth of knowledge for things to do in the area! I highly recommend this place!

Quick Visit

This worked out well for an overnight stay after being at the Corning Glass works all day. Had an added bonus of a visit by a doe & her twins.

We got a little confused finding the parking area haha! But it worked really well for our needs that night. Fast response! Thank you!

A valley retreat it is!

Excellent communication throughout and the instructions guided us right to the spot. Our host greeted us upon arrival and we had a nice conversation about the surrounding area. My 30ft C was level with minimal effort. If we pass through again I would return.

Stay at Valley Retreat

Nicely located. Near Watkins Glen and Elmira. A short drive to the Finger Lakes and the Wineries. Beautiful area. The host was away while I was there so didn't get to meet her but she responded quickly to any questions I might have.

Just what we needed

Quiet level spot. It worked perfectly for us. Thanks


October 2020

Quiet safe place!

We overnighted on the first night of our trip from Vermont to Oregon in the parking area and felt quite safe. Road noise was minimal. We woke up to a beautiful sunrise with some loach views. Host provided clear directions and responded quickly to messages. We did not get to meet, but during Covid, that might be good for all of us.

Boondocking stay in Horseheads, NY

Gracious hosts and friendly people. Helped us get settled and park in the correct spot for the night. Another example of a great stay during our USA trip. Thanks again to our hosts!

Great host. Very helpful

Great location for day trips to local waterfalls. Little tight for 30ft toy hauler. But made it work.

Our host is an awesome host, bar none.

This lady was so nice to us. Host even gave us a box of strawberries they had just purchased! We can not say enough about this host. And the spot we were given was perfect for our 29 foot class c, we do not tow another vehicle. And that worked out great.if you like peace and quiet? This is it. I would like to thank our best again.
We give them 5 stars or even more.

Valley Retreat

Host was very accommodating. We meet all her dogs which quickly became best friends with our dogs. Even had time to sit around a fire pit. We were just there for an over night but her location is great for a visit to Watkins Glen.

Note:. Entrance to the area was tricky. Maybe add a flag or sign. Bottom line was we did find it!!
