Living it large in the country of Northeast Pennsylvania

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I own a "ranchette" in Northeast Pennsylvania. I used to give riding lessons and work with special needs riders, but I'm pretty much retired now. I have only 5 horses left on this 8 acre property. I'm interested in RVing in the future, but until I do, I'd welcome people to stay here. I'm not far from Rickets Glenn State Park and Pinchot State Park. There's a supermarket within walking distance and several restaurants nearby. The big caveat is that the Rooster starts to crow early in the morning and there is absolutely no smoking because of the hay and the old barn that would go up like tinder. I have to say, it's beautiful here.

This is a ranch (kind of) so yes. I have chickens (which includes Roosters), quite a few cats, one dog and 5 horses.

alphamare's Hometown

It's called Sweet Valley, near Wilkes-barre, Pennsylvania.

I so enjoyed my night here. It was fun to see the horses and enjoy the farm setting. It was the perfect stopover making a long road trip a pleasant adventure! :)

Peaceful place to park!

We had the most amazing stay at this location. We absolutely love country towns and little farms so this spot was perfect. Chickens, horses, and fresh eggs as well as a nice quiet place to park. We did not hear the roosters or cars on the road at night. There’s a grocery store very close as well as many beautiful places to enjoy the nature. The host was beyond helpful. She gave us wonderful directions in, and even gave us a dozen of fresh eggs from her chickens. We appreciate all she did for us in making our stay so comfortable. We only planned to stay one night but enjoyed it so much we stayed two (and probably would’ve stayed longer if we didn’t have to be somewhere else). Thanks again for a wonderful stay!!!

Wonderful hostess in unique location.

We arrived a little later than anticipated and were greeted warmly and really looked after .Her site is dead level, easy to access , quiet and comfortable with horses and chickens. We took advantage of the offered electricity as the day was hot and very sticky. We had a very engaging and informative exchange of ideas whilst sharing a wine in our RV.
Our hostess kindly offered us some "Green" coloured fresh, free range eggs - gratefully received .
Thank you Alphamare for your time and generosity. You gave us a great time and we hope to reciprocate if you come to our part of the world.
We wish you well for your pending RV purchase.

Gracious Host! Beautiful setting!!

Alphamare is wonderful!
Going above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. What a strong person! Shekinah is the perfect place for a restful break from the road. We welcome her to Boondockers Welcome, and would gladly reccomend Alphamare!
