Attitude's Pets

There is a very large Black German Shepherd who roams the property and greets everyone with hugs and kisses. There are several well trained Belgian Malinois who guard the property behind a dog wire that runs all the way around our vineyards. They will not stray outside it. There are a couple of friendly little lap dogs that will beg you to stay and share some treats.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

All over North America.

Attitude's Hometown

Terra Bella, Ca. 93270, a rural area 7 miles from Porterville, Ca. We are at the foot of Sequoia National Monument with two great fishing and boating lakes nearby. The closest is seven miles away and supports house boating, fishing, personal watercraft, kayaking, and swimming. Our local lakes are well sized. They are run by the Army Corps of Engineers, patrolled by watercraft of the Tulare County Sheriff, and by resident Park Rangers. There is a full service Marina on each Lake.

A nice stay a little off the beaten path

We enjoyed our brief stay at Attitude. Very hospitable hosts and a peaceful location. Thanks for the stay!

A very pleasant stay.

We stayed for one night in the middle of June. The day was hot but the night was cool. Our hosts were exceptional. We felt very welcomed. We had a nice evening chatting with them. We hope to be back again.

Excellent stay, lovely folks, delicious wine

Thank you for the hospitality, so much appreciated, and it was above and beyond a normal Boondockers experience. Looking forward to coming back to see them - and more of the big trees!

Welcoming Hosts in a Beautiful Spot

This place is beautiful! I especially enjoyed the tour of the hosts' garden. The hosts were very warm and welcoming and had great recs for exploring the area.

Boondocking for the first time

We had a blast here at the vineyard for 3 nights! The place was peaceful and quite and the hosts invited us to their courtyard for wine tasting and their garden for a few moberries! There will be an unleashed black dog that will greet you first from next door as you arrive so don't get too surprised! There are total 4 dogs including two guard dogs and they are all so lovely! The spot was well leveled and it was wide enough for our left and right slideouts.

Among the Vines

A very pleasant two day stay here among the vineyard and pistachio trees! Our hosts were incredibly gracious with local attractions and we were even treated us to samples of their delicious boutique wine! We were fortunate to have stayed here-thank you both ☺️

Four Thumbs Up!

We had a great time here. The host quickly responded to our stay request and greeted us when we arrived. Expectations were clear. We enjoyed chatting with our gracious hosts on many topics. While on the property our hosts entertained us in their lovely outdoor yard and we enjoyed a tour of the garden which has some fruit we'd never heard of before. The space width was tight for popouts on both sides, but we still had plenty of space for our use since the site is quite long. We listened to a cricket serenade each night. This was our very first time with Boondockers Welcome and we did have some concern that the location might not be as lovely as the photo indicates. We can assure you that it truly is as beautiful as the photo you see and the views from the yard were spectacular. The dogs really are quite friendly, too. It was truly a great stay and we both give it two thumbs up.

At The Vineyards Review

They were excellent hosts.
Within moments of arriving, The Mister was on scene making sure we had no issues or problems. The site was level and situated next to vineyard grapes on one side and pistachio trees on the other side.He is also a great conversationalist. The Misses is both a Math teacher and a very knowledgeable Gardner. She too can talk at length about her garden, which was amazing! We meet them for wine both evenings of our stay. Their Teroldego 2018 red wine was some of the best wine I have ever tasted, and I’m not a red wine enthusiast.
We have a 40’ 5th wheel plus Ram 3500 and parking was not an issue.
It is about 42 miles to the Trail of 100 Giants in the Sequoias. The drive was 1.5 hours but the area was beautiful so the time passed quickly.
We Will return to At the Vineyard again in the future. We had a great time!

Thanks!

We had a very nice time by these guys! Get a tour in the fruit and vegetables garden and taste the lovely wine they make. Lovely dogs and nice area to visit. Your oranges keep us healthy in the last 2 weeks of our trip. Thanks for having us and maybe see you on an other trip

Grapes of Math

A happy coincidence for two math instructors to meet over a tasty glass of wine (supplied by our hosts.) Bet that doesn't happen very often. I mean really, what are the odds!?

Sandwiched between the pistachio trees and the grapevines, we spent two comfortable nights under the stars. A highlight was the just-after-dusk call and response medley between the coyotes and the domestic dogs near by. Really charming.

Friendly & Hospitable

Great hosts. I was invited in for a glass of fantastic wine made from the grapes grown on their property. I even got a tour of her garden. Even though it was mid-December, the garden was impressive and I was kindly given two delicious persimmons picked from her tree. So yummy.

I would definitely recommend this host and this location.

great hosts

Very nice spot and very very nice hosts. We just had one hiccup, it had rained a lot before we came and the night we stayed. So the spot we were in next to the vineyard was slushy and our 5th wheel and truck got stuck.

Peaceful Overnight Stay

My host greeted me upon arrival and got me setup for the night. They invited me in for a homemade glass of wine created from their beautiful vineyard. We had a great deal of things in common and thus great conversations on many different topics. Overall a great stop if they are on your route. Thanks very much you guys!

Friendly and welcoming

Super hosts.. We were met with a torchlight to guide us along the track to our spot alongside the owners' vines from their wine producing vineyard.
We were immediately welcomed and invited directly to their house to share a bottle of their wonderful vintage wine. After sorting ourselves out we were welcomed to return for coffee and shoot the breeze by the fire on the patio.
Given much information and maps to help us plan next day we choose to stay on and visit the giant Sequoias and swim in the local hot springs. On return we could return the generosity of the previous nights wine, but that was trumped by an offer of joining our hosts for an evening meal. Wunerbar!.
The only difficulty we had was in leaving our hosts the next morning. Hopefully our paths will cross again. Lovely people

Awesome Stay.

These hosts were wonderful. Confirmed our stay within a couple of hours. Host met us at the location to park and was very helpful. We had wonderful conversation on their porch and the wife gave us a tour of her fantastic exotic vegetable and flower garden. We will stay again.

Beautiful Farm

We had the honor of being the first guests of these new hosts. They generously accepted our request on 5 hours notice as we were avoiding snow and freezing rain on the Tioga Pass, northern California power blackouts and fires. We were met with a level spot as well as offers of coffee or wine and a long friendly conversation by a cozy fire on the front porch. We enjoyed our stay immensely!
