Tennessee Friendliness at its Best!

The day these two arrived we were having a small get together with people that I work with. We invited them to join us and 30 minutes from parking and hooking up we were all enjoying ourselves like we had known each other for years. Very pleasant and friendly people. A joy to host. Thanks for the jam. Safe travels!

Long lost new friends.

Did you meet someone that it seems you've known all your life? This was the case! We loved spending time with them and will look forward to seeing them in the future! The boys were great, makes me wonder if I would have a four legged friend again, these 2 were great!

Great People

The best thing you can say about anyone that stays is you could never tell they were there... These folks were very friendly and a pleasure to have as guests.

Even the Corona Virus can't stop friendship!

We enjoyed so much having this couple stay with us yesterday. It was like we met and became instant friends. Of course they are southerners and we all are related...haha. They are new boondockers welcome hosts as well so we hope to visit them next. They are welcome to stay with us anytime.

Beautiful scenery and peaceful

Doc and I enjoyed our stay on the host property. She was very nice and helpful in things to do. I would really like to meet them maybe next time.. Thank you for letting us stay on your property we really appreciate it. Doc and I are always appreciative and grateful that people allow us to stay on their property.

Beautiful spot. Plenty of room. We spent two days enjoying the area. A highlight was Ike’s Amish Depot.
Sorry we never met our hosts. We would definitely return.

Quiet and convenient~ great combination!

What a wonderful level area with a gorgeous view and quiet atmosphere yet so close to shopping and local activities! I enjoyed seeing the occasional Amish buggy trot down the road and listening to the neighboring cows. Plenty of historic sightseeing and hiking, too, within an easy drive. I regret that I did not get to meet Mile+Karen, but hope to stop again if I’m in the area. I highly recommend the Rohling family farms! Thank you for sharing your beautiful place.

Perfect spot for us!

This was a great stay! Easy access in a very pretty setting. Close to provisions; Walmart, Kroger, etc. We didn’t get an opportunity to meet our hosts personally, but had great communication via the app. Would certainly stay again!

Great Hosts!

Very helpful and gracious hosts! We got our rig stuck, trying to turn around in the field - the ground was soft due to recent snow melting! They tried to pull us out and even called a neighbor who finally pulled us out with his tractor — all in the dark! What an experience! We were blessed with hosts who were kind and ready to help in a moment’s notice! We will be forever grateful for their assistance.

Great spot and great hospitality!

Great hosts, although their many recommendations for things to do kept us so busy, we hardly had enough time to get to know them well enough. While in Lawrenceburg, based on host recommendations, we walked through Davy Crockett State Park and hiked to the Stillhouse Hollow waterfalls. Our lab LOVED the farm, and loved playing with their 2 dogs, Beau and Bob.

Thanks!

wonderful stop

Rohling Family Farms greeted us heartily and let us fill up on water-they had electric available but we did not need it. Welcoming couple, would highly recommend a stop here on travels!

Down Home Welcome

Our hosts Mike+Karen-in-TN are such wonderful people! They met us when we pulled in and helped us get set up. They surprised us with soup and strawberry jam gifts, both absolutely delicious! We finished the soup right away and saved some jam for the road. We swapped travel stories and wished we had more time to talk and that the COVID wouldn’t have kept us at arm’s distance. Overall we had a great stay and would love to return someday.

Just gotta roll with the punches.

We actually never got to stay with our hosts as we had trouble with our towing vehicle. But they were very nice about our having to cancel. I’m hoping we can meet back up in the very near future as soon as we can fix our truck issues.

Peaceful

Great stay with interesting and kind hosts. We needed a place close to our daughters til our RV site reservation was available. They allowed us to stay a couple of nights. We were able to have a couple of talks sharing experiences and areas we had visited. Thanks for all the info!

Peaceful & beautiful

This was our first experience with BW, and it was amazing! Our hosts were miraculously able to accommodate us with a same day request, and they generously offered us amenities, but all we needed was a quiet, safe place to park & sleep (having spent the previous night too near I-40, and hearing traffic all night long). We had a wonderful night's sleep at our host's beautiful place! It was easy to find with their excellent directions, and easy to park & level. They told us about many interesting things to see and do in their community that make us want to come back when we have more time to explore. We would love to be able to visit with them as well.

These hosts were great. Met us upon arrival and had some great conversation. Nice level spot with super convenient hookups. Great quiet spot with plenty of services nearby. Very food stopover for us. 😎

Amazing Hosts and Location!

Thanks M and K for your gracious hospitality. It was very much appreciated after 10 days of dry camping with ALL the amenities -- power, water, and a quiet and relaxing spot to camp. Easy to find and park, right in front of their barn where the hookups were. Our hosts met us and helped us get situated. Lots to see and do in the area and thanks to K we're visiting a few things we didn't know about. We hope to stop by again next year on our way next year!

A Must Stay-With Host

Our two night stay with Mike and Karen was thoroughly enjoyable. The parking area was level, making hookup a breeze. Enjoyed beverages and a meal with them on their lovely patio exchanging travel plans.

Their hospitality will always be remembered as one of the highlights of our journey! And loved Beau and Bob, their two adorable standard poodles!

Beautiful location

These awesome hosts were super sweet and extra accommodating, not only offering water and electricity but also allowed me to stay an extra night. There was plenty of room for my large 5th wheel and dually on this immaculate farm. I enjoyed getting to know the hosts over cheese and wine and yummy chocolate/lemon almonds, (while social distancing outside 12 feet apart instead of six :) Loved their adorable standard poodles Bo and Bob who were so friendly! I highly recommend this wonderful Boondockers Welcome location and would definitely stay here again.

A GREAT PLACE to STAY

Mike & Karen’s host location is beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing!
We received excellent directions - always appreciated. And communication regarding our stay was prompt.
Our hosts gave us choices as to where to park near the barn. All of the area is flat and extremely easy to navigate.
Our first evening we enjoyed sitting outside (social distancing of course) with tea, crackers & cheese , etc that our hosts brought over. A nice visit with them and their adorable poodles that are the cutest ever.
Sadly the rest of our visit was rainy which prevented us socializing outside.

We hope to see them again

Fantastic location and family

Could not ask for friendlier or more helpful hosts. My pup loved playing with their lovebug of a poodle. Great spot as home base to so many historic sites, stores, falls and Amish community

Wonderful hosts at idyllic setting near Amish country and Natchez Trace

Our hosts were very gracious and accommodating and were also very respectful of Covid-19 social distancing.

We were provided a level place to set up with awesome views, offered fresh water if we needed it and were also provided a 30 amp electrical hookup. We ran our AC during the hot parts of our 2 day stay and offered compensation but our hosts refused to consider it! They also provided beverages, snacks and homemade pizza (yum!) while we were there as well as great entertainment and conversation. Their 2 dogs (Bob and Beau) were a delight to have around and really entertaining to watch!

Our GPS delivered us to the property with no issues and our 36 foot (12'8" high) coach and toad easily maneuvered the entrance using the second entry as described in the host description.

We highly recommend our hosts (great people!) and would definitely stay here again!

An absolutely wonderful time! Beautiful location and warm and engaging hosts. We enjoyed a wonderful evening conversation with our hosts. Hope that our paths cross again someday!

Nice safe place to stay and close to shopping.

We had a great time getting to know our hosts. They were very friendly and super helpful. A great introduction to Amish country with lots of farm-fresh groceries.
Nice to have plenty of good grocery and hardware stores within a couple miles. The Walmart is walking distance.
Plenty of space to maneuver but be very careful with low phone/cable lines and some trees when entering and exiting the property.
We loved our stay and hope to visit again. Two thumbs up.

Beautiful Setting

This home has the most beautiful setting! We were able to sit under large shade trees and enjoy the peaceful scenery. It also is very close and convenient to town. Our hosts were not home, but still let us come stay on their property and hook up to their water. They told us about the area and what we should see and do. We would like to return sometime and meet our hosts and tell them in person how much we enjoyed our stay!

Friendly and Hospitable

This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and these folks set the bar high. They were on their way out of town when we requested a stay and still welcomed us with open arms. Our hosts were very knowledgeable and gave us a run down of the "must sees" for the area. We are forever grateful that we were allowed to stay on this beautiful property.

Beautiful Country spot close to city

We loved our stop and they were the most friendly hosts we've encountered so far.

It was a beautiful spot and would love to come back. We were even greeted with some homemade strawberry jam!

Quiet spot with nice host

Nice location, close to Walmart, etc.
We enjoyed a couple quiet nights to rest up on our travels and get supplies.

Even though not home, the host was accommodating and stayed in touch.

We recommend this site,.

What fun!

A super couple of nights with these sweet guests (and new friends)! Social distanced around our campfire, shared adult beverages, and got to know that she’s a bit of a gear head and he’s recently retired and loves to drive their rig. You’ll enjoy getting to this fun couple. Please, Mike+Karen, come back soon—or we’ll see you in TN!
