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.

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!

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.

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.
