Second Stay

I have stayed at Clae’s property twice now and it is always a comfortable experience. He is helpful and chill, and the location is great. Highly suggest staying here if you get the chance. Great experience.

Wonderful host :)

"CLAE" was such a great host! Very communicative, helpful, accommodating and welcoming. We feel very fortunate we could stay at his house and use the hookups-- the site is a lovely place to stay. He was so helpful in making sure everything was working and that we stayed comfortable, and he's very nice to converse with. Thanks for a great stay, and good luck on your future endeavors :)

Great overnight stay

Clae was really nice and he called to make sure we got in ok. Very quiet area. Multiple areas to park on pavement or on grass.
There is a cemetery next to it, just thought you should know in case that freaks you out.
We brought our 3 dogs and there is plenty of grass to take them on that isn't near the cemetery.

Peaceful solace to stay

This was a great stop for us on our way to TN from FL. We would definitely stay here again if our travels lead us near here.

Very helpful host

We just finished a 3 night stay here while visiting family in Webster, NC. Very friendly and informative host (and his son was fantastic in helping guide us into the site). Our 20’ trailer was able to easily maneuver into the spot and the full hookup was much appreciated!

Excellent

The grounds of the church were clean and easily accessible. Was able to communicate easily with Clae regarding the stay. Level surface to park and electric and water available when I stayed. Thank you…

Perfect overnight rest stop

It was flat, free, and available when we needed it! Quiet and secluded. Not necessarily level but good enough for one night. Much appreciated!!

Couldn’t ask for more

It was very easy to park. Clae had water and 15amp electricity available for me to use and a big back yard for my dog to play in. Clae is super friendly and fun to chat with. Also, this location is AMAZING. I had cell reception. Would love to stay here again.

Perfect location

This is so convenient to main road but there is a cute little Main Street tucked about 1 mile away which is not to be missed. Does it get any better than a bookstore with a brewery tucked inside and an ice cream place too. The hosts were so nice and we met super nice people in the little town also. We will be back to visit. Thanks

Great stay with an amazingly kind family!

My dog and I had a great stay with this kind family and what a beautiful home. They were so generous, even as kind as to invite us to stay a few extra days to explore the area. My dog LOVED the yard! A must stay if in the area. Hope to see this family again one day.

Lovely Spot

A lovely and flat spot in a nice area of town. Wonderful host and fellow RVvanner, so we compared rides. I wish you as much enjoyment in your Promaster as I have in mine. Thanks for a restful night.

Pleasant rest stop for our move

Host was not on site but replied to all of our messages promptly. He was generous in offering help, but we were not in need of anything.
The location was easy to get to with plenty of paved parking behind the church for our 2 trucks & trailers. We just needed a place to sleep on our move from FL to NC, but with the tree lined grassy field we felt like we were at a private campground. The smell of honeysuckle in the air made the stay even more delightful.

Quiet rural setting

Fit my plans perfectly to break up my trip from Florida to NC. Very quiet and peaceful. I packed at the far back behind the church. My dog and I slept peacefully. Thanks.

Perfect stay!

This was a perfect stopping point, close to I75, nice and level concrete for us to park on. CLAE met us as we pulled in and showed us where to park, offered us a little conversation but he knew it had been a long day of driving for us, so he was very considerate and went in but not before telling us to text, message, or knock on his door if we needed anything. Grateful for all BDW hosts but those last minute hosts are extra special when a family issue arises and all plans change. Would definitely stay here again!

Friendly, Personable Host

C guided us in & showed us where to park. Had to be careful backing into the site because of a low hanging bird feeder & a branch. But able to clear both! VERY LEVEL concrete pad for parking! Easy off & on from I-75, 15 amp electric & water available. We had a full water tank, but the electric hookup was a Godsend because the temps were in the mid-20's to 30's! So we definitely needed our furnace!
Once we were settled, C came to make sure that we were good or if we needed anything! We were able to visit with him for 15+ minutes before he had to get back to unexpected company. I wish we had had more time as we enjoyed his company! We look forward to returning! Thank you, C, for making us feel so welcome!

Quiet and pleasanr

It was super quiet and very pleasant. Sort of disappointed our schedule didnt allow us to stay with a Saturday visit. I'm sure church would have been the highlight of our stay. Appreciate the hospitality. Thank you.

Nice spot but on a slope

Had a very quite stay. The pad where hookups are is only 28'. The parking lot is large but has a good slope so be prepared to unhook to level your rigs. CLAE was away but his pictures showed us everything.

Nice locat

We stayed at this location for one evening and it was very very nice! Even though the owner was not able to be there, he very graciously allowed us to come in to his property and spend the evening. The directions were very detailed and the location was in a nice spot surrounded by trees.

Great Stay

CLAE was an extremely helpful host getting us parked in his great location, Had a great stay on our way to Florida. Sorry for the delay in sending this reference and thanking you for you hospitality. I thought I did. Now, I am playing catch from our return and noticed that it didn't go through. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay.
