Short stay on a long trip

How pleasant to host this couple for a few days as they were heading to a specific destination. Their arrival time was forwarded in advance as well as their departure. Enjoyed getting acquainted and sharing common interests. Hope their journeys are memorable and safe.
Would definitely welcome them back or recommend accepting their stay request.

I didn't get to meet my host but he stayed in touch with me the whole time. Very thoughtful on the needs of a Boondocker. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Such a nice family and so helpful with ideas and information. These folks are great couple and ready to help where they can. I was very grateful for the power hookup to use the AC. Kinda hot those two nights. Very cool community they live in as well.

Great hosts, great location, great experience.

This was only my 2nd stay with BW and if all of their hosts are as good as Nerenberg I made a great choice going with this community.

This member couple was awesome! I did a quick overnight and when I arrived they help me to park perfectly and were very accommodating and gave me some really great apps to help save money and information about some of my westward journeys ahead. I will be back! Thanks guys you rock!

Great neighborhood

The hosts were so helpful, they gave lots of recommendations for the surrounding area and beyond. Their community is really lovely with nature trails very close by. It was really great getting to know them and some of their family. We hope to see them again in the future!

Great location!

So grateful to find a place convenient to explore DC. There are many choices for groceries, dining, and fuel nearby. M has all the blocks and even has homemade ramps to help get us level. We had great cell service and I was able to teach while there, as well. Definitely recommend!

A great overnight in a great place

Our host Mike was wonderful! He called and texted ahead of time with instructions re: the steep driveway and leveling blocks, which worked well for us. Mike also gave suggestions for gas, food and shopping. He made the experience very smooth.
His elderly dad met us and assisted, since Mike wasn't there. What a good and knowledgeable gentleman!
Very pretty, friendly and safe development, with walking trails and more!

Great hosts

Heading from NY to Myrtle Beach, this was a nice spot to stay overnight because it was about halfway there. When we arrived a little after 9 pm, they were waiting outside to greet us and had blocks already set up so when we backed in we were level. They guided us in and made sure we were all set before they went inside. Such a wonderful couple and we would definitely stay here again.

What a great location and hosts

We had a great stay and even though our hosts couldn't meet us we were greeted by their dad. The location was quiet and we we're even able to fill our water tank and they offered us electrical. It's our first day on the road just having picked up our van from winter storage so being able to fill up was great. Can highly recommend on your way through Virginia. Thanks for hosting us.

We very much appreciated being able to stay here! The hosts were super super helpful getting us backed in and leveled, and were very helpful telling us about all of the great things to do in the area. These are the kind of people that you want to meet.

Wonderful Hosts

Such a great family and kind hosts. We stayed for 5 days and this was a great central location to several sites of interest in the area. They offered great tips and treated our daughter like one of their own. The parking spot is in their driveway which is pretty sloped but Mike is quick to get you set up with a big leveling block that is perfect. Great hospitality! Thanks Nerenbergs!

Thankyou!!

I had a great time with this host. They gave me some great ideas on what to visit in the local area. They had some local walking trails that I used, It was a lot of fun staying at their place . Would definitely want to stay here, if I travel through the area again.

The Nerenberg's were very accommodating. For an ole' man who doesn't move as I used to or get up and down, I was grateful to get a tire on the trailer changed. Done in 15 minutes. Fine folks and a wonderful family.
Thanks again for having me, Jim.

Great host AND repair shop!!

The Nerenbergs are lovely hosts. We had a mishap with leveling our RV (we are novices), and I thought we would loose a day of travel trying to get the minor damage repaired. But they had it fixed before we knew it! Really. Thanks Nerenberg! Salt of the earth!

Outstanding hospitality

And outstanding hosts. They went out of their way to help us set up the camper and gave us a bunch of tourist information and useful directions. Lovely family, too. Too bad we couldn't stay longer. These are people you want to make friends with. Thank you so much for your warm welcome and hospitality!

Very helpful and nice couple

Doc and I enjoyed our stay with the couple. They were very helpful and kind. They help me with the roof of my camper and I I am very appreciative. They suggested places to go sightseeing, which helped a lot considering I didn't know the area. Thank you again for having us I had a good time.

Awesome hosts

The location of their place is really nice! It’s in a gated community so it made me feel safe. They helped guide me into the driveway upon my arrival and then helped get me on leveling blocks. They are super friendly, calm and easy to communicate with. I am glad this was my first boondocking experience.

Very helpful host and easy drive to DC (as easy as it can be)

The host's father and son (and a son's friend) were like a pit crew that got us settled. They worked with us until we were safely locked down. The property is on a moderately steep hill and the driveway slopes to one side and to the back. To compensate, the host has made chocks to lift the rear of your rig (after backing in) and to level it (approximately) side-to-side. If you don't have jacks that will actually correct the side slope (we don't), he has plenty of wood for supports. We had trouble getting our load-levelers reattached when we left because of the slope and tilt; in the end, more wood blocks under the tongue jack helped. Before coming, be sure to CALL the host and discuss your rig with him. He will help you make it all work. If you want to use your own fresh water hose, bring at least 30 feet. Our 25' electric cable reached his outlet (20 amp) and he has a 30 amp plug adapter in place.

Awesome Hosts - Great Neighborhood!

We stayed over for one night and our hosts were amazing! They helped us to back in and get us all set up on blocks they had made to help get us level. Mike and Joy were super friendly, nice, and willing to help with whatever they could. The neighborhood is really nice and we enjoyed walking around and checking out the marina and some of the walking trail. We arrived later in the day and left in the morning but wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy some more time getting to know Mike and Joy. They are really great hosts! Thanks!!!

Community living

We stayed 2 nights during holiday weekend so our hosts weren't home during our stay. There daughter came to say hi and ask if we needed anything though. Hosts had left our names with the gate so we had zero issues getting into community. We had little trouble getting level but our host had left plenty of wood to use along with our own blocks. We managed to get pretty level. He had left 5 ft extention cord to hook into. We had no issues with power.
He was in contact with us prior to and during arrival. Gave us plenty of options for entertainment. We enjoyed a walk/bike ride down to the park and Government Island where we seen some wildlife.
We enjoyed our stay here at the Gateway to History.

The Gateway to History; An Awesome Experience and Excellent Stay!

The Gateway to History; Mike & Joy greeted as we arrived at their location, helped us back-in, and helped us get our rig leveled and set up. Gave us access to electric hookups and water and even provided us with dinner for our first night’s stay. Thank you so much for letting stay at your place, for taking us in and treating like family. We are grateful and feel so blessed for everything you have provided us and continue to provide us. We are overwhelmed with your kindness and generosity. Thank you so much! You two are amazing!

Super Hosts Close to DC

OMG...hosts are friendly, helpful, and readily available. Back-in location not ideal for novices and spot does require some leveling but hosts go above and beyond by helping with it all! Perfectly situated for day trips to DC or, take advantage of tons of options right in the secure neighborhood. Highly recommended and look forward to staying again when we visit next!

These folks are amazing. Gated community so it’s safe and secure. Very welcoming hosts. Fellow RVers so they know the lingo and how to help you set up. Great location for visiting DC and northern VA. Will definitely be back!
