Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Both retired "corporate" types. Husband retired engineer. Wife retired manager. Early 60's. Have no kids but one dog, a golden retriever named Sophie. (Note: Our beloved Sophie passed away October 12,2018 at the age of 14. She is sorely missed.). Our new golden puppy is Mollie.
Theresa has Lyme disease and that has temporarily curtailed traveling. She warns everybody to be especially careful about ticks and hiking in the woods. Use proper protection. Lyme disease is transmitted by tick bites and is hard to cure if left untreated.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Husband good with computers and anything engineering related. Wife very knowledgeable about Lyme disease and how to protect yourself.

PhilandTheresaL's Pets

Sophie, our beloved 14yr old golden retriever just passed away October 12, 2018. We loved her so and she enjoyed camping and hiking with us. We welcomed a new golden retriever puppy, Mollie, into our home in August, 2019. She went on her first camping trip at 4 months and she loves it.

Lovely property and hosts

Generous, funny and very accommodating! Wonderful hosts with a very cute puppy. My dog and I had a great and very welcoming stay.

Quickly in and out of this pristine stop

Sincerely hope they are able to reset and continue their RV excursions. Thanks for your hospitality.

Great Hosts

There are so many good things to share about my stay. First of all, it was an easy pull in and hookups were readily accessible. Second, I was invited within their home and had a great evening talking about many things including places that I should visit. Third I decided to follow their recommendations and I had an incredible 2 days while I was there visiting many awesome places. And lastly it was super quiet, safe and dark every evening and that was really enjoyable. Thanks for memorable stay guys!

Short but memorable stay

We had such a wonderful stay at their RV-friendly property! Quiet, lots of space, easy access from the I-5 - the perfect spot in Salem! Had no problem backing in with a 27' TT. They were so welcoming, they even prepared some little halloween gifts for our daughters. We definitely recommend them!

Wonderful stopover!

We stopped at Oregon Woods for one night. Easy access off I-5 and P & T could not have been nicer! We enjoyed their peaceful, rural setting and great RV and dog friendly property. We highly recommend these Boondocker Welcome hosts!

Relaxing and fun time

The hosts were so wonderful and nice. Had fun picking some fresh veggies from their garden and a sweet visit with Sophie their golden retriever. Very restful night in the country.

Great hosts, quiet spot

We stayed in our 23ft Class B motorhome. Gravel drive, water and 30amp electric were a great bonus. Nice folks, very quiet farm area. Easy access to Interstate 5. Highly recommended.

Beautiful setting

Phil and Theresa are awesome. We arrived later than we wanted, and once we got all settled they invited us in to chat on our adventures and gave us some great tips on places to camp that we never even knew about! The property they have is stunning, definitely recommend backing in from the street if you can. We had a 26ft travel trailer. Thank you guys again. Wil visit again soon!

Great Hosts

People that "GIVE" also "GET".
Rver's that invite "strangers" to enter their life routine are very special people and so are Phil and Theresa.
It was our pleasure to meet and share some time with this great couple.
Thank you very much.

First experience and great hosts!

This was my families first boondocking experience and PhilandTheresa did not disappoint. What wonderful kind people. They were kind enough to invite us in for a chat and we shared some hilarious RV and travel stories and learnt from their experiences. We had a electric hook up and the place was lovely and quiet. They were so kind with my 10 year old daughter and we would not hesitate to recommend these lovely lovely people.

Wonderful Hospitality

Phil and Theresa are very gracious hosts. We enjoyed our very short stay and wished we would have had more time to visit with them and their beautiful Golden. We hope they will stop to see us when they head north at some point. Beautiful rural setting, level parking, highly recommended by Gary, Janet and Riley!

Wonderful people!

Our stay with Phil & Theresa was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and we couldn't have asked for more. Both are wonderful people who made us feel very welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit with them in the evening. As full-timers coming out of 2 months in the BC bush country, it was great to just chat with someone different.

The site is level, easy access to the 101 highway and Phil offered both water and 30A hookup if we should need it. Best of all, he gave us a great tip on controlling condensation with the Eva-Dry dehumidifiers; I just ordered 2!

Thank you for your hospitality and hopefully we will meet up somewhere in the future.

Great stay!

Phil and Teresa were very friendly and shared some great ideas with us. It was a very easy, comfortable and welcoming stay. The immediate vicinity offers many things to see and do. Phil and Teresa were great hosts and would be great guests as well. We hope to see them again. Ahintz64.

High desert

Phil and Theresa could not have been more welcoming and very knowledgeable about the local area. Close to town the property has expansive mountain views.


July 2015

Flexible and welcoming

Theresa and Phile were very accomdating when I provided the wrong date of our arrival - thank you! Even tho they were going to be out at the time of our arrival they provided great directions and greeted us when they got home. We didn't have a chance to visit too much since we left early. We felt at home and comfortable at their place - and it's quite beautiful with a view of the mountains.
