Original reference didn’t go through.

Just realized original reference never posted. These nice RVers had to cancel for mechanical reasons but were very good communicators. Hope they can stop by in the future.

stop over

Did not see the guests as I was away. Yet, as stated following a stay somewhere.....leave only foot prints. Only tire tracks in this case. I did not have to pick up anything, etc. etc. Would like to have them stay again and visit with them.

Wow!

Very nice people; generous, friendly, gracious, open, delightful, interesting, engaging, encouraging!

We received more than we provided, we accept their blessing us with their presence!

We will look forward to sharing a campfire again sometime, whether here at our place or at theirs!

We appreciate the input they provided to help us be better hosts and all comments were so positive!

They really “heard” our hearts desire and supported our goal! 💕💕💕

The coffee from Washington may be considered the “best” but Washington’s people are really the best representatives of what BEST really means!

Just like long time friends!

We can’t say enough about these guests we had the pleasure of hosting! Anyone who has them as guests is in for a real treat! They arrived when they said they would arrive, they were easy to greet and friendly to talk with about our place and their place and everything in between! we had a lovely campfire and they experienced firsthand the every five minute weather changes in our state! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit with these wonderful guests!

Very nice couple. Spoke for a while with them but was not able to visit much due to other pending responsibilities. They are welcome anytime.

Excellent Stay, Peaceful location, Friendly Host

Tim was super friendly and had lots of great suggestions. Directions for arrival and parking were perfectly detailed and the site is wonderful. It's easy to get into and get settled and very close to town. A perfect stay!

Perfect place

We found it perfectly. Seen or spoken nobody but that was may be because of the rain yesterday and last night. This morning the sun was back and we observed the birds and the cat.

Peace in the Valley

We stopped at Ranch Acosta Plenty en route to eastern Washington. The ranch is a beautiful retreat with a full chorus of crickets. Tim was a wonderful welcoming host and we swopped travelling stories. Our world is a better place. Thank you Tim!!

Quiet, convenient location

This is a great spot for exploring the Leavenworth area. Within biking distance to mountain bike trails and only 3 miles from town.

A beautiful forested valley!

A very convivial host, Tim met us upon our arrival and helped get us settled into our site. He gave us some local sights to see and directions there. His horse ranch is in a very beautiful, forested valley just outside of Leavenworth and set in the foothills of the Cascades. We had a wonderful stay and will be back!

Fabulous Hosts!

We can't say enough about these hosts. So kind. Gave us lots of great help with restaurants, scenic drives, things to do. This stay is very pretty and peaceful. We can definitely recommend a stay here.

A perfect stay

The directions given by the host were precise and easy to follow. Quiet area with a passing car every now and again. Great location for solar. A few miles from the incredible town of Leavenworth. Our host gave us a ton of info on the best spots to go for tubing, hiking, restaurants, etc. He wasn’t intrusive and very polite!! The area for parking our rig was fairly level and easy to maneuver. If you ask us, this is a perfect location and host!

Very quite location

This was an excellent location for our visit to Leavenworth. It was a quite location and still only about 5 minutes from town. The host was very friendly and I would highly recommend staying here in the future.

Quiet Mountain Retreat

We stayed two nights at this location and enjoyed the quiet away from all the tourists in Leavenworth. Birds were chirping, the stream was bubbling, etc. Our host gave some great recommendations for things to do and see in the area. Thanks very much!

A quiet Haven

This was a very tranquil place to stay and really nice to have a flat site. 3 miles to town which is great. We didn’t meet Tdowns but were very happy to dry camp In his safe and secure yard.
There is indeed lovely birdlife here.

Perfect setting in Leavenworth, WA

Tim was very kind, pleasant, good communication. Everything was easy and it’s a short trip to fun, cool downtown Leavenworth.
Quiet, peaceful setting in the trees. Thanks Tim for a great place to stay by a neat town!

Great place away from the crowds

A wonderful stay! We were their first boondocker guests and are happy they joined up. We arrived in the middle of a very busy long weekend, and our host offered to drive us to town and pick up us later, since finding a parking spot was practically impossible. (We declined, but what a nice offer). We had a lovely visit upon meeting, and I discovered that our hostess and I both have a passion for vintage stoves (not something that everyone shares). And ... such a quiet spot to park our RV.

Nice people

Fellow RVers scheduled stop at our place but had mechanical issues and didn’t make it. Timely communication to alert us to the issue, much appreciated. Very nice and friendly communications, I hope we can meet up someday.
