Great Guest

Great guest who were very respectful of our property. Unfortunately we were away and did not get a chance to meet them personally. Our son checked In on them and made them welcome as we were traveling in South Carolina. Hopefully we will meet them soon.

Beautiful stay

Beautiful spot. 50 amp right at the spot. Safe, flat rural setting. Gary was very helpful. Would stay here again.

Lodging in luxury

Thank you for such wonderful hospitality. This is a beautiful spot. The property is expansive and overlooks lovely woods and landscaping. The space is very level and we had a very comfortable rest. Thanks for being such a a welcoming host.

Beautiful area, convenient to attractions

Much appreciation to this host. The neighborhood is beautiful. Good for walks. Close to DC, and Tysons corner. Michael welcomed us and offered electric hookup, above and beyond expectations. The weather was against us, heavy rains associated with the hurricane system blowing through. We feel very grateful for hosts hospitality.

Great Spot Between DC and Baltimore

This was a great host location to visit with my sisters who live in the Baltimore and DC area. Had some good conversation with Wanderlodgelife during my stay and my dog had fun meeting and playing with his dogs as well. Very safe street to walk my dog up and down with minimal cars, and the property was beautiful. I have had clearance issues in the past, so the driveway entrance had me a bit nervous, but I made it in and out with inches still to spare (EASY PEASY!), so I hope that eases anyone's concerns who have similar issues with their RV. O:-) I would have needed leveling pads at the parking location to get level, but I was lazy for such a short visit. Really appreciate his participation in BW and offering his place for parking. =)

The reason we do this!

Wanderlodgelife and family were just wonderful people! We had such a lovely stay with them and our whole family really enjoyed getting to know them. We were warmly greeted, helped in every way to get set up comfortably and shared some great conversations about life on the road with kids! It is the people you meet that make traveling so special and this family made our time here very special! Thanks again!

Lovely visit

Samet Chateau was a perfect place to stay while visiting relatives in north Silver Spring. Peaceful, quiet and off the beaten track. Our host was extremely friendly and helpful, and had a really cool 😎 campervan!!
