God is very important. I live where I live because I enjoy the great outdoors. I like to hear the birds sing and at my house they are very noisy. I enjoy life.

Next time on THEIR turf!

Very much enjoyed meeting and having tdowns stay with us. Lots of common denominators with them both! looking forward to continuing conversations at their place sometime! (And I think he's going to to take us to Hawaii for pie???)


August 2020

Quick stay with a sweet couple

We had a tdowns for a one-night stay. They are a sweet couple who kept to themselves, and were in and out with barely a sound. Would be happy to have them stay again.


December 2019


Good visit


November 2019

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.


October 2019

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.


October 2019


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!


October 2019

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.

Beautiful Forest/ Beautiful Town

We had a great stay. Our Host provided us with a nice map featuring the entire layout of Leavenworth. Spot is level with plenty of room situation in the forest.
Our Host was very nice and provided great directions to his property.


September 2021

Great location, very quiet and peaceful!

Our host was very communicative and we loved our stay! The spot is nice and level, no leveling blocks were needed, and in a beautiful and serene setting. Close to biking trails and town, and although Verizon and T-Mobile service was spotty, we had a little better luck with AT&T. We stayed three nights and would love to come back and enjoy it again someday. Highly recommend!


September 2021

Great place to stay

Stayed 3 nights and had a nice relaxing time. There was space for both our dogs to exercise and the host was very pet friendly and even came to meet our two dogs. Quiet beautiful location that everyone should experience boondocking!!


September 2021

A beautiful location and a wonderful host

We greatly enjoyed our stay, with easy access to Leavenworth, helpful info from our host, and a peaceful location we'd highly recommend.


September 2021

Great stay

Host came and welcomed us and the stay was perfect


August 2021

Our stay was FANTASTIC!

This was our first time using Boondockers. Our Hosts are amazing; we had a great experience. They gave us great advice ranging from where to bike ride, sights to see, as well general information about the area and their beautiful and warm community.

A wonderful setting. Very quiet and serene.

We can’t wait to go back, as well I hope they come visit us someday! Reciprocity is a great thing.

5 stars! (can I write that?:))


August 2021

Great stay!

Very friendly and nice. Close to Leavenworth (: thanks again!


August 2021

Great Location

Perfect location for our weekend adventure to Leavenworth. Minutes away from downtown. Easy to get into with a 37ft travel trailer as long as you swing wide, as instructed in homeowners description. Didn’t require any leveling blocks. Limited cell phone service with Verizon. Would stay there again if we have the opportunity.


August 2021

A very pleasant stay

Didn't get a chance to meet the host in person, but did communicate via text. Their daughter did come to check on us. They were all very nice people and would like to stay there again if we are ever in the area. The spot where we parked was nice, quiet and level and surrounded by the mountains that the Leavenworth area is famous for.


August 2021

Peaceful location close to activities

Wonderful location to spend a peaceful evening and quiet night. After spending the day touristing in Leavenworth, it was a short drive to this small farm and easy to find our private spot next to an idyllic barn and yard. We enjoyed a relaxing evening watching beautiful cloud formations as the sun went down. The hosts, a wonderful friendly couple, stopped by to welcome us and gave us tips on the area and advice for our upcoming hike. After a very quiet night of solid sleep, we headed out early morning to our hike, which was a short drive from the property. Would recommend to anyone looking for a private, peaceful, quiet overnight stay near to activities in or around Leavenworth, the Enchantments, and alpine lakes. We will be back!


August 2021

Great hosts!

First time staying as a guest and our hosts set a high bar for feeling welcomed! Very peaceful place to spend a night while visiting Leavenworth. Thank you!


August 2021

Always a pleasure

This is our second stay with these Host and truly enjoy these people!!! The environment is beautiful and so are the host! Thank you again for the great socializing on your porch and the use of your beautiful land to park for the night! We’ll see you guys again!!


July 2021

Great, peaceful stop over

Beautiful and quaint ranch property nestled in a canyon off the “main road”. Tim stopped by to make sure everything was okay and gave us some tips while visiting Leavenworth. Had a great night sleep!


July 2021


Very quit with plenty of room to park. Meet Tim and he provided some tips on hiking and biking trails. Plenty of things to do in Leavenworth and Wenatchee.


July 2021


We had a great time. Close to Leavenworth. We did some hiking, biking and touring.


July 2021

Comfortable and fun stay

We had a splendid time during our stay. This is located in a convenient area, close to downtown Leavenworth, but far enough away that you have the secluded vibe. It is very quiet in the evenings and there are trails on the property that you can enjoy. Mr. Downs provided great recommendations for our stay here. Highly recommend.


July 2021

Awesome host and location

We spent a day at this site and was absolutely grateful. The host came by to visit and to see if we needed anything. He gave us several pointers on places to visit and things to do locally. We couldn’t have asked for a better spot to spend the night.


July 2021

Great Experience

Really enjoyed this stay. Screw an RV park when you can have this experience of a lifetime. Wake up in a farm without any of the farm work, thanks for the great company.


July 2021

So great! Perfect location

Peaceful location on the mountain top and a friendly host who shared all the good things to do nearby. We went a short ride over to Wenatchee Lake for a great swim in a gorgeous setting. You may need to drive the three miles into Leavenworth for Internet or cell signal on Verizon to do any necessary searches for your travel, and the peace of the place is worth that. Wonderful hosts!


July 2021

Great stay

We had a great stay and wonderful short visit with Host. Great hospitality and a short drive to downtown Leavenworth.i is


July 2021

Great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors, amazing view from the top of the property!

Great place, property is very big and quiet and right outside of the busy downtown Levanworth. We were welcomed by the tenants that showed us where to park and hooked us up with water from the barn. They even took the time to give us a list of amazing places to visit from a local perspective! We were able to meet the owner later that was very reserved but also very welcoming. Even let us stay for an extra night. Unfortunately our kids got very ill at the end of our stay and we couldn't enjoy the outdoors as we would like to.


June 2021

Valley Retreat

Nicely nestled in a small valley. Good host and great forest views. AT&T service is poor.


June 2021


Very peaceful and quiet, with easy access to Leavenworth. Had a crazy lightening storm in the middle of the night which made for some fun adventure. Enjoyed seeing the quail. Recommend.


May 2021

Short but sweet

Had a lovely stay at Tdowns, Ranch Acosta. Loved waking to the birds and the creek close by.

Had a lovely conversation with Tim about next adventure to Montana.

Close to Levenworth to grab the essentials or have
a good meal.

Thank you Tim for your hospitality!


May 2021

Fantastic first time with Boondockers!

Tim was awesome and his place is fantastic! Close to town yet far enough out to get away from everything. I highly recommend his place!


May 2021

Great spot!

This was a nice peaceful spot to stay right outside of Leavenworth. Tdowns was very friendly and would definitely stay there again!!


April 2021

A peaceful springtime visit

The stay was perfect. Everything was so wonderful - wild turkey, quail and the sound of the creek all added up to a stay that was peaceful.

Thank you so much


September 2020

Country style

WE had a very relaxing stay, the environment was perfect. Coming from the desert to tree covered mountains with all the beautiful scenery and homes was just the change we needed. The Host was very cordial and gave us information for touring the area. Leavenworth was close and we wish we would have had more time. Thank you for the experience!


August 2020

Wonderful Stay!

This was our first time using Boondocker‘s welcome and we could not have asked for anything more. Tim was so personable and friendly and greeted us upon arrival. He wanted to make sure we were oriented, if there was anything we needed and even allowed us to hook up to 15 amp power which was an added bonus. The ranch itself was perfect for our family of 4 and for our two labs, they were able to roam in the pasture and play fetch.
They were definitely in doggy heaven! His place made a great base for exploring Leavenworth and all the outdoor activities nearby. We give this place five stars and would definitely return again.


July 2020

Great night at the ranch

Very much enjoyed a second night at the ranch. We had everything we needed in an excellent and quiet location Near town. Plenty of room for our 28’ airstream and F150 tow vehicle. Would love to return in the future.


July 2020

Very good experience

Great communication with our host. Level parking with plenty of room to turn the rig around and get The trailer situated. Convenient location Slightly outside main part of Leavenworth so very quiet spot and easy to find. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would like to come back again next time we are in the area. Thanks for the great stay.


July 2020

Scenic and peaceful

We enjoyed our stay. Mr. T. stopped by a couple times sharing ideas for places and special things to see. We did take a ride up to Sugar Loaf lookout. We mostly sat and read while listening to the wind in the trees and of course watching several Quail pairs with their young chicks scratching for seeds and bugs.


July 2020

Peaceful & Beautiful

We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely request another stay on our next trip through this area. Our Hosts were not home, but communicated timely with any questions. We did get to meet their beautiful daughter and enjoyed our conversations with another like-minded individual. We also enjoyed watching the covey of quail morning and evenings out with their babies. Our fur babies enjoyed the off leash area behind the barn as well. thanks again


July 2020

Enroute stop over

This was an enroute stopover. Just stayed one night. The hosts were very gracious and accommodating. We have a 31 ft trailer. Maneuvering was a challenge.


July 2020

Quiet place, beautiful scenery!

The host was very welcoming and made sure to come over and say hello when we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed! A nice quiet spot surrounded by stunning scenery. We would absolutely stay here again.


July 2020

Great location!

We had a wonderful time at this location. There was a nice little trail that we walked multiple times a day. It was only 5 minutes to downtown Leavenworth. The host was wonderful and accommodating.


June 2020

Easy spot & 8 min to Leavenworh

We enjoyed parking at Ranch Acosta Plenty as we were trekking eastward along Hwy 2. The place was easy to find and directions great. It is along a daytime busy road that went shush (very quiet) after dark.

The following morning we spent 2ish hours walking through the Bavarian village area in Leavenworth and along the River park trails before leaving.


June 2020

A great night at the Ranch!

We had a great night at Ranch Acosta Plenty! The weather was perfect for camping and the location was fantastic. The hosts were away but we had a great visit with their daughter who came over to say hello and to welcome us. Our stay was quiet and peaceful with plenty of room. We launched the drone and got some great shots of the mountains and the valley. We gratefully appreciated the 110 volt extension cord which allowed us to turn off the generators and still keep our fridge cold. I would recommend the ranch to anyone who enjoys being out of town, away from crowded RV parks, and close to nature. Many thanks to our hosts for sharing such a beautiful place with others, may God continued to bless you as you bless others! - Tim


May 2020

Nicest Hosts

The property is already great, with the babbling brook, beautiful surroundings, power hookup, quiet peaceful night, and only a few minute's drive from downtown Leavenworth... but the hosts are the best part. They stopped in to say hi and bring us a local map... and they were so friendly and welcoming in every way. We really enjoyed meeting and talking with them so much.... they made us feel like family. Thanks so much for sharing your space and your hospitality with us!


September 2019

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!


September 2019

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.


September 2019

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!!


September 2019

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.


August 2019

Awesome folks and BW location!

Thank you so much Tdowns for being such AWESOME host!!. We arrived, parked, and spent at least an hour visiting on their front porch... All the while"oooh, and aahhing as 6 deer and many hummingbirds joined us!!. The deer came out of the woods to get a snack from Apple trees in the yard, it was a great sight!. The location that we parked our RV in was a very beautiful, peaceful haven. Thank you so much for the hospitality!. We were blessed to have meet you and stayed in your spectacular property!!


August 2019

Tim was so welcoming!

We were greeted with a map, directions to the best beach area for kids, and a beautiful spot! We really enjoyed our stop here.


August 2019

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!


August 2019

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.


July 2019

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!


July 2019

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.


July 2019

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!


June 2019

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.


June 2019

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!


May 2019

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.
