Great Boonedockers!

It was a pleasure hosting this couple, just wish we had more time to chat. They seem like they are both very interesting. Who knows, maybe our paths will cross again since they host also.

Excellent Hosts

We stayed here overnight. We had a few snags on the trip down there, so we didn’t arrive until after dark. The hosts were super helpful getting us settled in. Gorgeous property, and all I can say is Wow!!! We watched one of the most spectacular sunrises ever over the field across the street. As an added touch they gave us a pack of pollinator friendly flower seeds with their apiary name and info on it. Kind of a unique business card. If you have the opportunity to stay here, do not pass it up.

BeeUtiful!

Thank you so much for the stay and the extra night. A blown tire can really throw a monkey wrench in your time line. I enjoyed the tour of your home and learning about the bees. Stay safe and enjoy!

Wonderful stay!

We had a wonderful stay at Beefield. Our hosts were very accommodating and welcoming. Easy in and out access with water and electric right there. We even noticed a bee swarm and got to see them collect the bees to move them to a new hive. Very interesting

Such friendly and welcoming hosts!

The hosts here are so friendly and open. I felt like I got to know them very quickly and would definitely recommend staying with them. They gave me a tour of their bee farm and I learned a ton about bees and the bee farming business!

Great new friends

We were treated like old friends as we arrived and had a wonderful time with our gracious host. My wife really enjoyed speaking with both swapping stories about her dad who is also a bee keeper In Delaware. Hopefully they will visit us in the near future.

BeeUtiful

Lovely spot. Hosts greeted us and helped us get settled. It is just off the road so some traffic, but very little at night and we were able to sleep well. Host gifted us with fresh eggs! What a wonderful surprise.. we will come back! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Wonderful and educational experience

Wonderful out of the way spot along our way to Tennessee. Hosts were very helpful and kind. A neat place to learn about everything bees. The camping spot is along the road however, it is a quiet road with little traffic and the spot is up next to a fence to plug into electric so it is about 20 feet from the road. We have a Lance truck camper and it was a great. Thank you, MPRanger and Mrs. MPRanger for your hospitality.

Great Host

These host are very accommodating and interesting to talk to. We were concerned about camping ten feet off the highway pavement with every speeding vehicle shaking the trailer. If these host develop a site away from the highway, we would definately reccomend a stay with them.
