Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a long time married couple. We live on a 10 acre property and have had horses, goats and chickens over the years, but currently only have dogs sharing our space with us.
Our home is in a rural neighborhood, but is only five minutes off of Interstate 495 and 8 minutes from a grocery store.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Gerry converted a 2017 transit van into a class B motor home, which he did completely himself. (Gerry ran a custom woodworking business here for 30 years).
Katie speaks several languages, loves to cook and bake, and can also teach you how to play Mah Jongg if you are interested.

GoatberryFarm's Pets

Yes, two dogs. A German Shepherd and a rat terrier.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We did one 11 week trip and a 6 month cross country trip.
On the 6 month trip we visited 38 states and 20 National Parks. Many favorite spots and people along the way! BW was a wonderful resource and we have kept in touch with many of our BW hosts.

GoatberryFarm's Hometown

We live in Wrentham, MA (home of the Wrentham Premium Outlets), but in a rural neighborhood five minutes from there and from Interstate 495. Wrentham is almost equal distance (in mileage) from Providence, RI and Boston, MA. We are also an hour away from the Cape Cod Canal.

Short but sweet visit!

Our first BW guests! They were awesome and even gave me a tour of their van, which was amazing. Quiet and respectful and very well behaved dogs. I hope you enjoyed the area and had a wonderful time at Echo in Burlington!

Extremely quiet visitors, like ghosts not seen and only heard by a few.

Their arrival time was as they planned, I totally made the mistake as I figured an hour later--even though they text me the time. I just completely blew that time of which I'm sorry, for it may have put our visit off on the wrong foot. Made sure that they were set up and had everything they needed and let them alone.
I was looking forward to seeing their van conversion and renew my game play of Mah Jongg.
They are extremely quiet. Left nothing behind. Used their solar so did not use any offered amenities. Kept their distance as we both have larger dogs.

I'd welcome them back again as I'd like to give the friendship another chance.

We were very happy to have hosted GoatberryFarm on their way to Florida. The RV they have crafted is quite impressive. It was hard to discontinue a very interesting session sharing travel experiences. Both pups were very well behaved. They are more than welcome here any time in the future.

GoatBerryFarm merely stopped for an overnight stay. Only chatted with them briefly, but they were courteous, seemed nice, and their dogs were friendly. They were very good about keeping me updated on their arrival time.

We had a great visit! They are very nice people and very friendly. We enjoyed their dogs also. Their camper van is amazing and they were quite gracious to show it to my son who would like to build one himself. They are welcome to stay anytime they are in the area!

Dang we missed them.

We are sorry we were not home when the GoatberryFarm stayed, we were traveling our selves. I wanted to see their van build in person, but they did share a youtube tour which just made me want to see it more. We could hardly tell they had been here. We hope to meet them another time.

Great Folks to spend time with

It was wonderful to see these guys again. We really enjoyed spending time discussing the complexities of the RV lifestyle. They have a great attitude and are easy to be around. Their pets are well mannered and fun.
We very highly recommend them as both guests and hosts and hope to see them again soon.

Wonderful people, well trained dogs

Met them when they arrived to help them park their rig. They gave us a wonderful tour of their completely custom built interior conversion. He is a master craftsman and she obviously loves the RV life. We entirely enjoyed our brief encounter and they are welcome to stop here again any time. Their dogs are very well behaved. This was our first experience as hosts and we couldn't have been more pleased.

Loved staying at Goatberry Farm

What a pleasure staying at Goatberry Farm. We had plenty of room plus electric hook-up and our dog had a great area to run. The hosts are lovely people and we enjoyed getting to know them. As fellow RVers they know what travelers need and are great hosts. We hope to be able to stay with them again sometime!

Outstanding Host

We had a wonderful stay in their beautiful property. I wish we could have stayed longer, these host were very interesting and I wish we could have heard about their travels Best night sleep in a very wooded area with no street lights. I would highly recommend this Boondocking site! Very close to the largest outlet mall I have ever been to.

Excellent Stay

Had a great time with the hosts, very friendly and open. Shared dinner and some travel stories.
The site was very level and required no leveling of my unit. Located in a very nice area, safe and quiet.
Hope to see them this winter in Florida.

Last minute stop

After finding out a family member was in hospital we changed our route to visit them and these amazing people helped immensely by letting us stay!! Caring, kind, understanding, and so sweet!! We stayed just the one night but it was relaxing, quiet, and just what we needed!
Thank you sooo much for being the calm during our storm!

5 ⭐️ Hosts!

Our hosts allowed us to boondock 2 nights on their beautiful property. They also provided our Class B Roadtrek with electric & water. We had scintillating conversations about RV traveling, our families and many other topics over evening wine and morning coffee with homemade bakery. They helped us with some troubling issues on our RV. We also enjoyed viewing their own RV conversion. In sum, they were perfect hosts. We hope our paths will cross again.

Nice stay

Some low hanging tree branches had me concerned about driving my 11.5’ tall rig to the back of the property, but since we were leaving early, we just stayed in the driveway near the road. It was dark and quiet, so we had a good nights sleep.

Feels like home

I could not have asked for better hosts who were such a blessing on a rainy weekend. They took me in, taught me mahjong and helped fix a few things on my van- accompanied but great conversation and delicious cooking! I felt like family and I sincerely appreciate them opening their home to a girl and her pup! Thank you again! I hope to return soon 😊

Nice couple

Even though I was only there for 1 night, I felt very welcome by this wonderful couple. While the site was nice and quiet with everything I needed, I would stay again just so we could talk more about our adventures. After seeing their fabulous van conversion, I was a little embarrassed that I showed them my amateur conversion 😊

Very first BW overnight! Amazing Memories!

Thank you to our gracious Goatberry Farm Hosts! We had a fabulous stay at Goatberry Farm! This will always be a wonderful memory as we start out on our journey with our RV. Goatberry Farm has set the bar high! We so enjoyed learning about their RV build and their travels, we got so many tips! What great hosts and a beautiful setting for the evening! Looking forward to returning again and sharing more stories of adventure.

Awesome BW Location!

Great stay at Goatberry Farm! Our hosts were fantastic. We visited for 5 nights and shared stories and wine while we practiced social distancing in the yard. Awesome location for our needs. Very comfortable and quiet at night. Extremely convenient to 495 and 95. Loved their dogs Joleen and Jackson! Also got to see their unbelievable van conversion that they've renovated themselves. We'd love to stay again sometime!

Gracious, friendly and hospitable

Terrific couple! We were so sad that our trip was cut short due to a family emergency. ......His work building their class B RV was fascinating! Very talented craftsman! He has inspired me to pursue solar power to our RV. Would love to return in the future....Thank you folks, it was a pleasure meeting you! Blessings to you both!

An Enjoyable Stay

This location is easy to get to using the hosts directions and we found ample level parking, 15 amp electric and available water.
The hosts were more than gracious and were genuinely concerned that we had everything we needed. They were very intelligent, funny and encyclopedic on things to see and do in the Boston and Cape Cod area. A commuter train is nearby making trips easy, inexpensive and stress free.
They have two dogs who were well mannered after getting used to us.
We look forward to meeting the folks at Goatberry farm again soon and highly recommend them.
