Lovely stay

We stayed one night on our way to the Westcliffe Bluegrass festival. The communication/directions were excellent.
Lovely, restful retreat. We enjoyed sharing Airstream stories and hope to meet up again.

Relaxation

Very enjoyable stay.
Our host was very accommodating. Great place to get rested up. Lots of room to back my 30 foot airstream in and it’s a very secure property. Highly recommend this host

Cute Town, Great Spot, Friendly Host

Staying with VetTrekker was such a treat. Her property is lovely and spacious, and the location is great, just a few blocks from Main St. But the highlight of our stay was really VetTrekker, herself. She is a great host, and is so accommodating. We both loved spending time with her and exchanging stories.
We hope to get back for another visit.

Trinidad Retreat

Absolutely wonderful weekend. We arrived Friday midafternoon to meet Vetrekker and her doggie. Her space is huge, as you can see in her photo. She said to just pick a spot. She also offered 30 amp power and water if we wanted but we didn't need it nor did we need to run the generator but it was no problem if we did. The trees were bare so we hope to come back later next time. We took our dogs to the dog park and also the concrete path along the river. Great views of the nearby peaks. Vetekker is great to talk with and her property to die for. Favorite this one and go visit.

Great host and location!

Had a wonderful experience at Trinidad Retreat! Vetrekker has a perfect large, peaceful space right in the heart of the city. Our dog loved getting to run around off-leash and chase the squirrels. We felt safe and secure and were easily able to explore Trinidad. Our host could not have been more kind and accommodating. She was flexible with our plans and really helped us out as we worked around the snowy weather. Loved getting to know her and hope we can return again!

An enjoyable overnight stay.

Vetrekker is an excellent host. She provided water, electricty, and local recommendations. We swapped stories about the roads traveled during an enjoyable chat.

Large, quiet, hidden

Vetrekker is the perfect host. Everything was exactly as specified. We loved the quiet yard and even had a little snow! So beautiful!

Great Hideaway!

This was a return visit for me & the dogs for our Thanksgiving holiday. Arrived in a snow storm, so knowing the best approach really helped. The dogs were ecstatic to be back too. They were bummed about the cold & snow but we were all grateful for the power, water and refuge in the storm! Never got cold, and being tucked out of the wind so helped us stay comfortable! Blessings Vetrekker.

Little Paradise

This is an ideal location for anyone with dogs. Private lot next to host totally fenced. Vetrekker is a wonderful host with power & water. Trinidad retreat is my favorite boondock to date. Thank you & will call to stay anytime I am in the area! Highly recommend.

A home away from home.

What a fantastic soul! I feel very blessed that we have crossed paths; she is an inspiration and a true definition of compassion of heart.
Thank you for welcoming me and my fur kids! I will return, even if it's to stop and say hello!
I feel I have gained another soul sister!

Quiet, shady spot

This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay. It was definitely a great experience. Trinidad Retreat is a nice, shady location. It was a quiet, restful night. Our host was very welcoming & included water & electric hookups. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

Nice quiet spot in town

We enjoyed our stay with Vetrekker in Trinidad. We were greeted upon arrival and given options for parking in the spacious side yard that was gravel with lots of shade. We had a very quiet and peaceful nights sleep and would be happy to stay here again when in the area.

Shady Spot

We had a very nice night at Trinidad Retreat. Even though the host was not home she allowed us to stay and had electric and water hook ups ready for us. She communicated very well! We would definitely return for a visit! Top notch spot!

Great host!

Our host was very helpful! The property was level and a breeze with the setup because they had a long enough cord for the water and electric. Would definitely come back when we are in the area.

Welcoming and Easy!

This was our first Boondocker’s welcome stay and we were very pleased. Our host was gracious and the camp spot was perfect for what we needed for the night. Thanks!

Perfect place

I send her my eta and I found the gate open and her personal attention for the hookup. She was generous with the space offering me many possibilities to enjoy my time there.
I highly recommend her.

Peaceful

We loved our stay, it was a quiet, restful, safe location to stay. Karen was extremely helpful, accommodating and friendly. We would definitely suggest this stop to anyone, there is plenty of space, shady areas. She provided a 110 plug and water as well as offered to dispose of our trash, she wouldn’t even take a donation. Such a blessing

Peaceful place

Trinidad Retreat was the best! The gate was open for my arrival and my hostess greeted me warmly, offering a plug, water, and internet password. The location is convenient for the interstate, but no noise. A delightful night of rest.

Super host!

Vetrekker was a fantastic host! We really enjoyed chatting about our pups, travels, campers & the area. She told us great places to go for sightseeing and walking our dog. Super friendly, accommodating and even gifted us some apples and avacodos. The yard had ample space and was fully gated which allowed our dog to hang outside. That was super cool! Would most assuredly revisit if we're in the area again.

The kindness of strangers...

I could’ve swapped stories with my host all night. It’s a pity the pandemic rushed me away before I had a chance to do so. She was so helpful, had empathy to spare, and even sent me on my way with personal items that would help me avoid shopping for a bit longer. Her yard is super safe, I felt so secure and snug I didn’t even dark out all my windows. She is a retired vet with a houseful of her own companion animals so for me it was heaven with all creatures great and small. The town is quaint and colorful. I truly wish circumstances had allowed me to stay longer, and I hope she will visit me someday so I can return her gracious hospitality.

Cozy yard with partial hookups

Vetrekker is an awesome host. She apologized for not having 30 amp service until next week. We were just happy for a quiet night off the road. Site can handle a 30 ft trailer u-turn. Shade in the afternoon WiFi, water and 15 amp extension cord. Very nice. Unfortunately we didn't meet our host in person but she was only a text away to help. 5 stars
