I am a semi retired widow who finds great joy in traveling on a shoestring. Love meeting the locals, living the life of each destination. I live in a renovated granary raising organic poultry and vegetables. Growing things, teaching others practical skills, cooking and baking are all passions of mine....I love traveling; not to just see sights, but to meet the people who live there. When not traveling, I am hosting others on their travels at my farm. What am I about? Posted in my home are these 5 rules for living-
Tell the truth
I once read that "the virtue of hospitality is an attitude of the heart". That is what I hope to share and partake of with Boondockers Welcome!
Gardening, raising poultry, teaching others forgotten practical skills, preserving the bounty, fermentation, bread baking
I have 4 dogs, several cats, chickens and a guard goose all living here on the farm. All well trained (except the goose) but only the little rat terrier mix travels with me occasionally.
Kent, New York on the western end of the state one hour from Niagara Falls
Gorgeous, peaceful spot to stay, with a warm and welcoming host.
Really nice quiet spot in a small town. Lots of room around back with shady trees. Host was very friendly and accommodating for our two day stay. We loved the animals and vibrant garden.
Host was very helpful with tips about our trip to visit Niagara Falls amongst other things. Great little spot nestled behind her house which we found out was once a mill that has been lovingly restored. Be careful driving in as there are a few geese, chickens, dogs & cat. Thank you for the stay
Heather and her sons were great Hosts. We felt comfortable and had a great time. We sat by the campfire, picked raspberries, pet the cat, and chatted with Heather about things to do along the eastern coastline. we would highly recommend camping here. It had a country feel and was very relaxing.
We enjoyed our stay in your place. It was very peaceful. With all we need...
We will come back. Thanks for your hospitality in this weard period of time. We appreciate.
Thanks It was our last strech back home.
Great host, very accommodating and generous, gifted us with her own organic eggs. Interesting to talk to, including good tips for traveling. Woke up to the sound of the free range chickens. Right next to a small post office - very handy. Five miles from the Cobblestone Church Museum.
From the moment I arrived, I bonded with my host, her son, plus their dogs, cats, turkeys and the protector of the farm...a giant white male goose. We had tremendous commonality and interesting conversations. Generally, they are very busy with their farm, so I was happy to catch them when they had a bit of time to share their thoughts. If you're in the mood to spoil yourself, she also has an airbnb, so a large space with hot showers for airbnb guests is also available with a reservation.
We so enjoyed staying here, especially our day at Niagara Falls. Everything was as described although a bit tight for our 40 foot motor home. It is doable however. So peaceful and we even made friends with the cat. Gracious hosts.
The site was level and easily accessed off the main blacktop road. Our host was an engaging conversationalist exploring a raft of topics including our joint loves of travel, good diet, and organics. A very peaceful night.
