I felt like I was home!

My hosts were amazing! I did indeed feel welcome and like I was at home! Took a tour of their skoolie. How fun. Great location. Plan on a stay.

Truly is on Top of the Mountain

Quiet peaceful location on top of a mountain. The driveway is a bit steep but we had no problem pulling in with our Toyota Tundra towing a 30 ft travel trailer and getting turned around near the camp site. The host was friendly and came right out to get us settled in. Great location for day trips to Cooperstown. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks for hosting us!

Good stay

The host was great! He provided us the with both electric and water. And, his dog played well with ours. The spot was very quiet and no light pollution

This was our first Boondockers welcome experience and I’m pretty sure that no other will compare. Our host went way above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. He made us dinner and we spent every night by the fire hanging out and have a good time. To say that he was the best host is an understatement. A truly awesome guy. The space was nice and private with a good combo of sun and shade. Great stop if you’re passing through.

Fun location with perfect host!

Beautiful wooded area with plenty of privacy. Host was generous with help and sharing his area. My kids had an absolute blast and are begging to go back. Look forward to seeing this host and his family on the road again!

Quick overnight

We stayed for a quick overnight. The host and his neighbors are so friendly and welcoming! The town of Cobleskill was great for the kids to enjoy a playground and bite to eat. It was just short drive from the host location.

Location fits title definitely top of the mountain

Nice stop, quiet, shady, rural and welcoming hosts. Host is very flexible and also appreciates meeting new people. I found them levelheaded and firm in their ways of life. The dog Marley is their big baby—not aggressive at all.

Peaceful rest!

This was my second stay on my return trip home. Really appreciate a quiet and safe spot to rest for the night!

Friendly and welcoming!

I really enjoyed my stay at Top of the Mountain. It was great to see the cool bus conversion RV, visit with the family and meet Marley the dog. My dog Louise loved romping around with Marley too! Hope to return again someday!

The Mink Family is the Best

I have stayed at a few Boondocker spots so far and this was the best experience by far. They were very welcoming and gave me time to setup. Then they offered a beer and dinner. What more could you expect at a free site? Even if this is off your route, make time to stop by and stay a night at least.

Peaceful and Friendly Stop

We had a spot amongst the trees, with electricity and water, and were able to dump before we left. The host greeted us at his mailbox at the bottom of his driveway to help with deciding on a parking location. Everything we could ask for! The driveway has some stumps and rocks to watch out for, so watch for those as you enter and leave. Thank you for such a comfortable overnight stay, being so welcoming, generous and friendly. Hope to see you again!

Beautiful location

The hose is so nice and help me to set up. He has full hook up site. The place is on the top of the mountain that gives you an amazing view. I will definitely come back if I am in the area.

Super spot and consummate host.

Was a short, yet fantastic stay. Our host was very communicative every step of the way. He greeted us upon arrival and ensured that we got in and setup with everything we needed for the night. He helped with some recommendations for the next leg of our journey too. The setting is stunning. Thank Minkfamily for the warm hospitality and opening up your pad to us fellow-travelers. Be well.

Feels like home

Traveling is sometimes exhausting. This host makes sure you are able to unwind and relax. He makes it a point to make you feel comfortable and refreshed for the road.

Amazing, peaceful place. Thank you.

Top 'o the Mountain fun!

We had a great time with a wonderful host. After dinner found us around an amazing campfire, playing music and having good conversation. The entrance to the property was a little tricky at first, but our host made sure we got in ok.

This was a great stop.

This was our first boondocker welcome. What a beautiful area! Our host went above and beyond to ensure we had what we needed for the night. We would stop back for sure if returning to this area. Thank you so much Minkfamily for having us!

Wonderful visit to the Top of the Mountain!

We had a great visit with the Minkfamily. We arrived late but the host came out in the rain to help us get set up. We arrived quite late so we didn’t talk much then but decided to visit more the next morning. He has a great place to visit and is very friendly. If you want a nice place to boondock and some wonderful conversation with the Minkfamily be sure to visit them.

New host, great experience.

We arrived at the top of the hill, the host met us at the bottom of his driveway, we walked up to where we could park and decided it wouldn't work for us at the time. Mink family is brand new to bw, we were his first guests. He asked us for any pointers on his place, we told him it would work better for a smaller camper or a class b or c. We are a 34'fifth wheel so we couldn't fit as this time. To get to mink family BW you have to go up a steep hill,10 precent grade in a few spots. It's a beautiful quite location, and the host is a great guy. We wish him great success!
