Safe harbour

In the midst of a cold, cold January that made our RV a hazardous place to stay, going to Gladmar's place of refuge was a blessing. Many thanks for your hospitalities. Surely, we'll see you again soon.

Great place and very wonderful hosts

We were welcomed very warmly and had a great quiet spot . Our hosts brought out suggestions on where we might like to go and see local music and that fit in so well with our timing "awesome" we would recommend them and stay again if we're in their area.

WOW great great great area and these 2 host are the best.

Well this is what is all about, having a nice safe place to layover a night or so and to meet exceptionally nice people. These 2 host are the greatest people you can and will meet. I have traveled throughout the US and world for work and seldom do you get a chance to meet this caliber of people. They are gracious enough to allow you to plug into the electric and water if available. But I have also found other host do the same, man what a great organization to be a part of. If you are going to be in this area I highly recommend you contact these 2 and if your lucky there will be other guest here also to visit with. Ok if you should find yourself staying here you will have a great stay guaranteed.

wonderful hosts!

We couldn't have chosen a better place nor more congenial hosts for our first boondocking experience. They have a beautiful property and made us feel very welcome. We look forward to keeping in touch and seeing them again. Pat and John

Quiet Perfect Place Near the Blue Ridge Parkway

We were so lucky to find gladmar's posting and have them accept us as visitors to boondock. What a beautiful gem of a place in the hills of Virginia. Although we didn't meet our hosts, they generously offered a 30 amp hookup, access to water and wifi for which we were very grateful. Due to GPS problems, we arrived very late. Gladmar had provided coordinates but our GPS wasn't working properly which resulted in us circling around till the wee hours and almost running out of gas! But it was all worth it to be able to stay here for the night. Thank you, Gladmar, for sharing your little piece of heaven with us. We are so grateful to you both and hope that your travels and boondocking are just as wonderful as ours have been. We would love to host you at our place near Ottawa, Canada, if you are ever in our area. Thanks so much!

Awesome Hosts and Location

Spent a second visit with these wonderful ladies. Feel like family. Very comfortable, friendly and accommodating!! We only wish we could have stayed longer! Perfect hosts.

Blue Ridge Parkway Delight

Once again my dog and I were very welcomed by these ladies on our annual trip south. It is such a pleasure reacquainting our experiences and interests. Looking forward to seeing you them the summer. R

Family welcome

Oh my goodness! We have boondocked many times but never have we had this kind of welcome. Two of the nicest ladies you could ever meet; invited us to dinner; great spot for our rig. Wish we were staying longer. Will definitely be back for another visit. Sure hope they will pay us a visit so we can show them some hospitality like they have shown us. Highly recommend.

Quiet and beautiful spot

This was our first stay at a Boondockers and we are glad it was with these lovely ladies! They let us stay for two nights and we are more than honored and happy to have met them and being at their place. They're close to Mt Airy which is a delightful little town to visit, we also took on their recommendations for biking route and visited the Mabry's mill, which is a must go if you stay at their place. An amazing experience, joyful conversation, beautiful stars at night, and great hosts.

Awesome Location and Fun Hosts

We were welcomed graciously. Had a wonderful dinner that they prepared for us. Had a really nice visit. Only wish we could've stayed longer. Very roomy site. Beautiful location! Will definitely go back.


November 2016

Absolutly wonderful!

Probably the nicest pepole I have ever met. I would absolutly recommend stopping by and making two new friends,even if it's out of the way! Thank you gladMar for making our first boondockers expirience a great one!

Great Place to Stay!

I had the pleasure of staying here just now and can't say enough about how nice the ladies are and how beautiful the site is. It's right off the Blue Ridge Parkway and an easy ride into Mt Airy if you want to see the Mayberry attractions. The site is level, quiet, and if you're a good guest, you may find some food to take on your journey. No pressure on them tho! There are no street lights so you'll see a million stars. Their dogs are as nice as they are too. I'll definitely come back when in the area.


July 2016

Nice, friendly, and fun

These folks are so friendly and nice. The front porch visits were the most fun.Hope they will come to Alabama and visit with us on our back porch! Enjoyable visit.

Once again I had the pleasure of spending the night with these two caring ladies. I had some health problems and they were there to offer any help that they could. Looking forward to their stay up here when they come sometime. Thanks again ladies, you are the best! Ross

Wonderful Stay in the Blue Ridge

We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful, relaxing stay. The ladies are gracious and funny hosts who made us feel as welcome as family. The location was easy to find and not difficult to get into. Highly recommend this Boondockers Welcome! host.


April 2016


Hubby and I stayed at the most amazing overnight right on the Blue Ridge in VA. We had all the amenities and the women were gracious, interesting, and welcoming. I hope they use our little place when they are around CT.


February 2016

Could not ask for more.

We could not have asked for a warmer welcome to Boondockers Welcome. The experience at Gladmar’s was one to remember. The warm welcome we received on a very cold, very long night was very much appreciated. In fact, a standard was set for welcoming guests, one we hope to replicate for our future guests. Thank you ladies for such a wonderful night, and we hope to see you in the summer! Ryan & Mel

Quiet Location with Great Hosts

Great Hosts! A well traveled pair of ladies with a quick wit and the ability to make you feel like part of the family. Very gracious and accommodating. Great location that fosters relaxation and just taking it easy. Worth adjusting your route to visit.


October 2015

So sweet and accomodating!

They are so entertaining and interesting! Hopefully will see them again soon!


October 2015

Great place. Great Folks

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit with the "Gladmar's" including the Spaghetti supper. Glady's furnished us a sewer hose so I would not have to climb to get mine. We will go back to see these nice folks some day soon.

Beautiful Location, Great Folks

Visited on 4 September, we could only stay for one night. Beautiful location with shade, easy to get in and out. The ladies were a delight to visit with. They treated us like family. We look forward to visiting with them again soon. Highly recommend either as a guest or host.


July 2015

What a delight

We stayed with gladmar last night. Two of the warmest friendliest people I have met. Experiences like this are why we love to travel.This is a beautiful property very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

A Coupe of Great Ladies

Gladys and Mary Ann welcomed me to there lovely house in the woods. With a wealth of knowledge and travel experience, we shared stories of past and future adventures. A must stay and a quick hop on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Thanks Ladies.


April 2015

Wonderful setting!

We can't say enough about how nice Gladmar treated us. From the moment we arrived they were warm and welcoming. We even were invited in for dinner! Very interesting conversationalists - you will certainly enjoy your stay. They have a fairly level site in their side yard complete with 30 amp power and graywater hookup. Our only regret is that we visited between seasons so nothing was in bloom. As gorgeous as it already was, we could only imagine what it must look like when all is blooming. We hope to return there and definitely recommend you stay with Gladmar!


January 2015

The Best!

Some boondocker sites are the best. This is one of them. What lovely ladies/hosts for our stay. They have 30 amp, which is a real boon [play on words, right?]. Their friendly nature, quiet spot, and kindness were so appreciated after a hard drive from Penn. And, to top it off, it's located just 12 miles from Mt. Airy NC, home of the Andy Griffith museum! We stayed an extra day to see the town that Mayberry was based on. And their great dog, Maddie, was a real nice addition!

Friendly hospitality

It does not get much better than this! The views throughout the Blue Ridge are spectacular and this couple made me feel welcome and at home. The areas offered for parking are level and gravelled! Bonus! Knowledgeable travellers, they gave me plenty of tips and recommendations for my travels. Well worth a detour if you aren't doing the whole Blue Ridge! gandrew
