Great couple from Minnesota

We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and hosting this couple on their way south for the winter. We hope they will come again when we can visit longer and hear more about their world travels. You are in for a treat if you have the opportunity to host Woodfrey.

Hosted them for a quick overnight stay. Hardly knew they were there. Glad they got to escape their northern state snow. Safe travels!

Wish we had more time to share and swap travel stories

What a nice couple, they have a deal for travel and places new to see. Greatfull for our meeting, and maybe one day the stars will align and we can visit again. Safely without COVID in our collective world. Just the nicest folks, grateful to meet them.

Cookies and a Minne-snow-ta hand made wooden snowflake from the hostess and host. Made sure everything I needed was well explained. Very friendly couple.


June 2021

Wonderful Stay!!

The MinneSnowTa hosts were so kind and wonderful! They truly went above and beyond. We enjoyed spending an evening with them trading travel stories and much more. We hope to see them on the road!


June 2021

Lovely spot

The hosts were gracious and welcoming. They greeted us with printed material about the areas and cookies. It was quiet and we look forward to meeting you in Texas sometime


June 2021

What a nice family!

What a nice family!
Very easy to find and the hosta could not have been any more welcoming and accommodating. I got all kinds of area information and maps and even cookies! Very quiet neighborhood, very peaceful at night. Thank you guys again for all your help and making me feel so welcome 😊


June 2021

Nicest Hosts!

We had a great stay on our hosts property outside a small town but conveniently located by bike/walking trails and all the amenities of Duluth. Enjoyed evenings in the lawn chair with great conversations getting to know the hosts. Really friendly, kind and laid back. Great area info and wonderful cookies! Would love to come back or meet them on the road during their travels!


May 2021

MinneSnowTa was a real treat.

First of all, these hosts are some of the most kind-hearted and genuine people we've met in our travels so far. We were extremely fortunate to have been able to stay with them, and though we didn't get a ton of one-on-one face time, we're looking forward to coming back soon and getting to know them a little better. The surrounding area has a lot of beauty to offer, and with such close access to Duluth, we're already looking forward to coming back soon. Thank you guys so much!


May 2021

Great time!

Very nice couple and greeted us with cookies and a welcome package. Couldn't ask for a better stay!


December 2020

Wonderful hosts!

We very much enjoyed visiting MiniSnowTa, and had great conversations with our host couple. The next time we are in that region, we will go out of our way to stay there again!


October 2020

Great hosts and great location

This was my first time using boondockers welcome, I hope the rest are as great.
The location was perfect for exploring Duluth and Superior. I used to live in superior as a kid and remember how nice everyone was, my hosts were no exception. They gave me some homemade blueberry muffins and a wooden snowflake along with a map of the area. If I pass this area in the future, I hope to stay here again.

The Essence of Boondockers Welcome

We've been on the road for over 22 months and stayed in a number of Boondockers' locations. MinneSnowTa ranks high on our list of best places to be for a few days. We were able to check out Duluth while we were there as it's relatively close by. Our hosts could not have been nicer, allowing us to use the pad where their own RV generally rests, providing power and sharing blueberry muffins we enjoyed with our coffee one morning. They are some of the kindest, gentlest souls you'll meet anywhere. We had quiet and restful evenings. Hope to see these folks on the road.

Great Hospitality

To our hosts, you were both wonderful hosts. Welcomed us as we arrived; brought us small gifts and zucchini bread for breakfast. He even showed off his wood shop. Thank you so much and it was very nice to meet you! -- Mark and Beth


August 2020

Awesome hosts

R & A are warm and kind hosts. We did a lot of talking and shared a meal with them and neighbors. We were greeted with muffins and a map to the local activities, trails, gas and restaurant.

We greatly appreciate the power and water. We hope we can host them someday or meetup on the road :)


August 2020

Very nice hosts

Warm welcome. Even brought us muffins for n the morning. Would stay here again

Bikers Delight

Wonderful hosts, lovely spot close to restaurants, walking paths and bicycle paths. Great hospitality!


August 2020

Woodfrey is wonderful!!

We were so welcomed by Woodfrey at MinniSnowTa! They are great folks, and even gave us a hand made wooden snowflake to commemorate our visit! If you have a chance to host or be hosted by them, don't miss it. We look forward to staying with them again when we go "up North"!


August 2020

Excellent Visit

MinneSnowTa was the perfect location to do sightseeing in Duluth. A quick 20/25 minute drive from their location puts you into Duluth. They provided water and electric hookups which is always a bonus and a nice level pad. We were able to have pleasant (safe distance) conversations and share stories. He is a very talented wood worker and she makes delicious zucchini cake. Very interesting folks who I hope will allow us another visit in the future.


August 2020

Fantastic Hosts

We really enjoyed our 2 nights at Ron and Arlette's house. They are very hospitable and friendly. We had a camp fire chat on our 1st night with no fires and it was delightful. We totally recommend an overnight with them


July 2020

Like staying with Family

Our hosts are amazing and interesting people. We felt like we were with family from the moment we met them. We hiked the trails with them and our dogs and spent evenings on lawn chairs “solving the world’s problems” :) The property was beautiful and quiet. They will always be welcome in our home and we look forward to the next time we are able to visit them. We can’t thank them enough for this wonderful weekend.

July 2020


The hosts were very accommodating and friendly. Great servants of the community with many talents. Nice flat area to park. Area was quiet and peaceful. Great spot to stop for our journey.


July 2020

Fantastic Hosts

Fantastic Hosts! Moved their RV so we would have a nice level spot. Offered hook ups, which we didn’t need, although we did top off our water tank from their water spigot. They provided a nice printed map of the area with gas stations, grocery stores, etc. indicated on it. Our host even provided us with a “snowflake” he created out of wood as a gift. This was our 1st BDW experience & it was great.


July 2020

IWorld class hospitality!

This was my first stay with a Boondockers Welcome host and it was amazing! WOODFREY flattened out a pad on the driveway for an RV to park. He and his wife had water available as well as electricity and made a little guide for things to do in the area.

I rode the Munger trail into Duluth and it was quite a ride on a paved bike path. Once I got into Duluth I did a bit of sightseeing and then rode back up the path. Be advised that there is no drinking water available on the trail and it can get very warm.

My stay in the Duluth area was very nice and was a great way to begin my trip towards Maine.


June 2020

First first

This was my first visit to Minnesota and I also was the first BW guest for these hosts. The stay was amazing. The hosts were extremely gracious, offering electric and water. There are some beautiful biking/hiking trails which link up at the end of their road and lead throughout the entire state and much pop and I thoroughly enjoyed those. Great little eatery in town on the corner also within walking distance. Small town and tiny neighborhood were as quiet as being in the woods alone. Hosts Jane a nice little hand made gift for guests also. I can't tell you what it is. You have just have to go visit and get one for yourselves. Would love to stay here again!!
