Be happy to host them any time.

Nice folks, great guests!

Great communication! Hardly knew they were there. Wish we'd had more time to visit. Hope they had a great time.

Great Guests, Welcome any time

They were only here for an overnight on their way through, but they seem like a very nice family on an awesome adventure, and they are welcome back anytime !


August 2020

Expectations Exceeded!

We were delighted to have hosted Andy+Charlotte and their daughter. We shared a meal with them AND our neighbors and visited while learning more about each other. We wish them safe travels and hope to meet again.

Great 2nd Visit!

Second time they have boondocked at our location. We have established a wonderful friendship and will continue to be in touch and possibly meet elsewhere in the country.

Wonderful Guests

Our guests arrived while we were gone but they set up perfectly on the property, probably even better than if we had been here to help. They were incredibly polite and were conscious of the house rules. They joined us for outdoor church service Sunday morning and then cooked us an authentic dinner from her home country. We had great conversation while we ate the delicious food and swapped stories from the road. I would recommend them to any host and they are welcome back any time.


June 2020

Sorry we missed you.

Hope your stay was pleasant and my family took care of you!

They are welcome back anytime.

Great start to 2020

Friendly family. Had a peaceful stay. Did not get to share much but glad they felt comfortable to come and go as needed and saw the things they hoped for in this area. Travel safe and welcome back any time

Very Nice Family

Our guests were very quiet and considerate, and great to talk with.
They said they had a great time visiting the beaches in St Augustine, and their nine year old daughter enjoyed collecting sea shells.

Wonderful Family

Nice to have Andy + Charlotte visit. We enjoyed having them and glad to have hosted them. They left everything clean and departed early. Safe travels!


November 2019

Very Nice Family!

They arrived when they said they would. They were very self-efficient, and respectful to us and our property. They came out to greet us when we arrived home. Saturday was a busy day for both families. But on Sunday, we ate breakfast together and spent most of the morning together. It was a real pleasure to have them stay. They are welcomed back anytime!!


October 2019

Wonderful Family

We enjoyed their stay with us. Their daughter is a adorable and the cat warmed up to us right away. We loved the stories shared! I admire their goals to travel the country.


September 2019

Wonderful folks

Their visit was pleasant and they are wonderful folks. They are welcome back any time.


September 2019

Would welcome back anytime!

Andy and Charlotte were the perfect guests! They have a beautiful rig and left the space in pristine condition. They visited our place during my work week so I wasn’t able to get to know them. They were self sufficient, which was very much appreciated!


August 2019

Wonderful Family

We really enjoyed the visit by Andy, Charlotte and their daughter. What a wonderful family on their first RV adventure! We wish them well and hope they come back to visit. We feel like they are part of our family now.

It doesn't get better....

This couple is amazing.
From a video showing where to park in advance, to a welcome with open arms upon arrival, wow.
Early communications figured out for both parties that we would share a meal. We supplied ribs and wings, they supplied a full Chinese feast, form soup to dumplings and fried rice among other things.
After our wonderful repast, we were lead around the property to see the things they grow to make their meals so good including how to make Chinese Kim-chee (sp?).
Once again we arrive as strangers and leave as friends, BDW is the best!

Great hosts

Andy and Charlotte were great hosts. Unfortunately we had a small altercation on the road so we were not able to completely enjoy their hospitality we were a little distracted. Charlotte made us a plate of the most delicious dumplings with her home made dragon sauce. We had just spent the last 5 days in Maine looking for moose and bear we had no luck. So we were very excited to hear there is a resident bear that occasionally pays them a visit. No luck with bears here either. Anyways this was an awesome stay with some really nice people. Thank you Andy and Charlotte you have a lovely spot

Great Host

Great host, very accommodating and very quite and private at the host's property.

Couldn’t have been nicer!

What a gorgeous location in a lovely town - green, tucked away, peaceful.. and our hosts couldn’t have been nicer or more hospitable. Hope to visit again!


July 2021

Great stay

We had great time staying by Andy and Charlotte, great couple, highly recommended thank you.


July 2021

Relaxing and peaceful evening

We arrived after a long day of traveling to a wonderful welcome by Andy+Charlotte. They were such gracious hosts and very accommodating! It was so nice to share a meal with them and have a great conversation. They really went all out to make us feel welcomed and told us that we were welcome back anytime we are in the area. Highly recommend staying with them!

Salt of the Earth💜

This family by far, renews our faith in the goodness and mercy of humanity. They made us feel like family. The beautiful lady cooked authentic Chinese, we did fireworks with them, visited their chickens and bees, and did not want to leave. The great dad was engaging and entertaining about his time in the Navy and in corporate America. I cried when we had to leave. We will visit them again again day. Or them, us💜

What a great stay!

So this was the first trip I’ve done with Boondockers welcome and I had no idea what to expect. Andy came out as I drove up and guided me to the parking area. As it was 100 degrees, he thought it would be better if I parked near the barn so I had power and would not melt. They made dumplings as I mentioned I’d heard about them and then set off some fireworks. This morning I got a text about a black bear that just walked in front of my rv so I waited a bit to get out and walk my dog. When I finally thought it would be safe,I leash walked my dog and ended up coming about 100 ft from a young black bear. Instant wake up. Really nice visit that I will do again.

Wonderful Stay and with a Wonderful Host!

As this was our first time out with our Retro camper.....which my wife has named The Golden Ticket....we could not have asked for a better reception and stay here. What a wonderful host family....they all made us feel welcome. They helped and shared their space, as well as stories and a delicious dinner meal. We would raccomandata this host and their site if in area. And plan is to go back on the way to our future travels. Thank you to this family for making a unknown place a memorable stop that made us feel welcome.


June 2021

Lovely place and people

They were waiting for us at the end of the driveway which was very helpful. We enjoyed getting to know the family and hearing their stories.  Lots of room to turn around and options to park. Their place is very beautiful and would recommend!


June 2021

Fantastic experience - Great hosts!

Andy and Charlotte are such warm and welcoming hosts! Andy met us at the road and guided me to the perfect location for my 20’ trailer in the very big and beautiful, quiet area behind their home. Andy is really friendly and helpful, and they both love helping boondockers enjoy life! Charlotte made the most delicious Chinese dumplings and traditional Red Dragon Boat rice for us! They were absolutely delicious and sooo appreciated! I have had 3 other boondockers stays, and they have all been really good, but Andy and Charlotte are the best hosts ever!!! Thanks so much!!!

Beautiful spot, beautiful people

One of our best stays! Andy was attentive to every part of our trip with good communication throughout. Charlotte surprised us with a very special treat. Our pup Ambyr was enthralled with the attention by their daughter. All in all, it was a most pleasant evening and a very quiet night.

Fantastic !

This was our very first host on Boondockers welcome and they certainly have set the bar high! From the very rustic beautiful yard that was quiet and peaceful, to the homemade dumplings that were beyond delicious, to their friendly and helpful hospitality that made the stay fantastic. We would highly recommend and look forward to revisiting them someday !
