My husband and I recently retired and are rving. We winter in Florida and Summer in Maine. When in Florida we camp out where it's warm! In the summer we have a fleamarket style junque shop ( and I mean junk) in Cornish,Maine. We are not fancy. We are average Maniacs! We have room for about 6-8 rv’s depending on size of rv. We do have a well where you can get good Maine water to drink. We are about 30 miles from Maine beaches and 25 miles from Portland,Maine and Malls. We are 30 miles from the white mountains and North Conway,New Hampshire. We are about 2 hours from Boston. We have a river that runs behind the shop and you can kyack most of the time. we offer a couple of tent sites. No utilities. We do offer a free cup of coffee when you arrive!

Skills & Expertise to Share

My husband is a carpenter . I should say was as he just had congestive heart failure in the past year and has a pacemaker/defibulator and is limited in this area. He is a licensed Real Estate Referral Specialist in Port St Lucie,Fl I was a family alcohol and drug counselor in the 80's and 90's and then went into retail sales running Christmas and Halloween stores in the Malls in Maine,New Hampshire, And washington D.C. I also have run my shop in Maine for 28 years in the summer. I met my husband 5 years ago and we have been married for 3 years in August.

packratphyl's Pets

we have 2 small rescue dogs. We just rescued them 2 months ago and they are still adjusting! I should say we are! Dusty and Duke. We are everyday people who love life. We live one day at a time and try to help people whenever we can. My husband is Italian and unfortunately I am a New England girl, so if anyone is a great cook, you will have won his heart. So we love going to bbq’s where they have pot luck as it’s awesome all varieties of food there is!

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Cornish,Maine and the Equestrian site at Dupois Park in Fl. Several others in Florida.

packratphyl's Hometown

I was brought up in Cornish,Maine. A beautiful little town with lots to offer visitors. Antique shops and small shops galore. A hotel and a motel and several good eating places that are a must to visit! My favorite is Bay Haven, where they have the fish brought in daily from the boats. Portions are large. Sophies has great food and a drive thru and order ahead or take your chances there is a seat available! Sunrise Pizza and grilled chicken salad. Great sandwitches and Italian food. House of Pizza is where the Locals gather mornings and My husband and I are usually there with a group of friends for coffee or breakfast. A great breakfast Buffet on Sunday Mornings! Fat Boys is great. Fairgrounds Pizza has a bar and Varity of good food. The community is awesome.

Good Location

We were greated by our host and chatted a bit. Good tips on area eats and enjoyed one she mentioned. We were out sightseeing the days there and loved the Mailboat Run ferry that she told us about. Able to talk with her husband also before we left. Such a nice couple and safe area to use as a base .

Awesome hosts

I had a really sweet 3 night stay here in Maine and the hosts were awesome. Nice field to park in and a beautiful river about a hundred yards through the woods behind the field. I hope I get a chance to come again...

Comfy parking

Great spot. Quiet and peaceful. Our hosts welcomed us and got us parked. We used our stop to see. Portland, the white mountains, the coast to York and lake winnipesaukee. We were centrally located between them all! A Big thank you to our hosts for allowing us to spend an extra day. They offered us to stay longer if we had liked! THANKS

Wonderful hosts

Friendly hosts with 2 small adorable dogs. Out here you will find a large field and serenity. The road is close by but it is heaven. On their recommendation we did the mailboat tour out of Portland. So worth it.

Nice stay!

We had a nice, comfortable stay with packratphyl. Parking is in a field with trees forming a barrier between it and the highway reducing the road noise. Spots are level and easy to maneuver around. We were able to leave our tow car hooked to the motorhome as the turnaround area was large enough to manage. Due to rain we didn't have the chance to socialize with packratphyl as much as we would have liked to but did enjoy the brief conversation we had with them.

Special park and neat couple

We enjoyed our brief stay with a neat couple full of life with challenging future plans for their property at a age when most are ready step back and take it easy. It was great to share lunch and to talk about their future travels with their LazyDaze motorhome. We would definitely stay with P and T if we are in the area again.
