Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband and I are retired, starting to travel in our small travel van. We believe in energy conservation. We keep honeybees and we built our own passive solar timber frame home in Connecticut. Our 20 acre property includes a stream, fields, woods and a vegetable garden plot leased by a CSA farmer family.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I had a career helping schools and municipalities save energy. Since retirement, I enjoy crafts and lap swimming. My husband had a 33 year career as a practising licensed arborist, and knows a lot about trees, pruning, removal and tree diseases. In 2017, Allan lost his right hand in a traumatic wood processor machine accident. Now he is making furniture and keeps almost 20 hives of bees.

Paul and Judy

This was our first experience with Boondockers. It was a perfect stay. Beautiful area and exceedingly kind hosts. We are most appreciative.

Kind and Accommodating!

We arrived as scheduled and Nanci was there to guide us to our site. Very nice large property with a stream running through it. Very kind folks. Thank you and we hope to return.

Tranquil Overnight

We were given an excellent reference point for finding the correct driveway; a gorgeous red hibiscus in full bloom. This was the start of a perfect Boondockers Welcome stay. The location was easy to get to and just off of the main highway to our next stop. It was also convenient to good food and grocery stores and lovely hikes and points of interest. We were able to speak with both of our hosts and found them to be incredibly lovely human beings. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - thank you so much for having us!

Another great stay!

This was my second time staying with my host and once again it was a very nice stay! My hosts were so nice to me and for once I was able to help them a little bit. I am grateful for their hospitality and their generosity!


August 2021

Nice, peaceful stay!

My hosts were very pleasant and gracious from their first "hellos" to the time I left. The spot was nice and flat, and the hosts blessed me by allowing me to plug in! It was a pleasure meeting my hosts and hearing about their land as well as some of their entrepreneurial endeavors.

Thank you very much for your hospitality! Without nice folks like you bothI would not be able to do this tour of the East Coast!

Super nice Host

It was great to stay at The Honey Poole. Mrs.Nancy and Mr. Allen are super nice. They welcome us like a family. We was able to see their bee’s hive and Allen told us about bee life . It was interesting to see the Queen bee. They allow us to walk around their beautiful garden. They keep checking to make sure everything is ok. We feel like home here. Love The Honey Poole and Connecticut. Would 100% recommend for everybody.

Lovely spot, gracious host!

This lovely spot was very easy to get to with a spacious, level parking area. Our host and her sweet dog greeted us - so friendly and welcoming, we loved our stay!


September 2020


Although the spot is close to the street it was private, spacious and flat. Gracious hosts. It was my second time there and will go back again.


May 2020

Wonderful experience

Hosts were accommodating with electricity. Lots of room. Had a few conversations from afar, and got some attention from their wonderful dog. Across the street is a very old cemetery that was equally quiet and peaceful. On a main road, but few cars, perhaps because of the lockdown.

Quite evening beside a country road

Our host provided a nice flat spot located a few yards off a country road. We slept well, it was quiet, and an electrical hook up was provided for us too.
We were on our way through Providence, Rhode Island and it was a nice stop on the way.
