Phelps, Exit 42

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Located only 3 minutes from NYS Thruway exit 42 and 10 minutes from Geneva and Seneca Lake.
50 amp power is available but you may need a long cord to reach it.
There is a level crushed stone pad for parking.
Turn in from the road is a bit tight but our 37' class A is no problem getting in. See the pictures for a good view.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Having never lived in a house that was less than 100 years old, I have become a decent 'handyman'.
We purchased our first motorhome (1998 Damon Ultrasport) a couple of years ago. We have remodeled, updated and repaired it as much as we have used it.

We have 2 longhair Dachshunds. They are contained away from the boon-docking area.

FingerLakesExit42's Hometown

We have lived in the Finger Lakes region for the last 25 years and have enjoyed watching the growth of the wine and microbrewery industries. Centrally located between Rochester and Syracuse (an hour or less to each). There are two full service campgrounds 10 minutes away.

Finger lakes

Very very nice hosts and very talented. They completely remodeled an old farmhouse from the 1820s simply amazing! Would love to have them come visit us in West Michigan someday!

Gracious Host, Lovely Community

We enjoyed the farming atmosphere of this host location. Peter communicated with us in a clear and timely manner in advance of our visit and greeted us upon arrival, helping with hook-ups and information about the surrounding area. The property is on a fairly busy road but the driveway is long. When we discovered an air-conditioning leak inside our RV and had to make calls about repairs, Peter offered for us to stay another couple of days. Thanks so much for your hospitality Peter!

Great place to Star!

This was a great place to stay while we visited family nearby. We didn’t interact much with the hosts but they were very helpful when we arrived and accommodated our later return each night. We will consider staying with them again next time we pass through!

Highly recommend. Peter and his wife greeted me and gave me a list all of the local businesses and things to do in Phelps NY.

Beautiful Stay

Gorgeous brick old farm house and loved the farm animals all around. Host was so accessible and greatly assisted me with backing up. He made electric hookup very convenient, too - surge protector for 30A so a/c could be used. THANK YOU!

Second referral

We wrote a favorable referral immediately after the stay. We're happy to do it again.

The Colquhouns were the most hospitable hosts. The property is beautiful. Our nights were peaceful. We would highly recommend these host to all.

Great hosts and location just off I-90. A little tricky getting in with a motorhome and car, but the host guided me with no problem. A very comfortable stay.

The Nicest host made the trip extra sweet

We’re so lucky to get to stay here. Our trip started a bit rough. Originally we were here to attend the Mustang rally, but unable to get the Mustang on our toy hauler due to some technical challenge at home. As a result, we arrived a day late, exhausted. The host let us stayed a day extra to explore the area, and got some rest. See you again next year!

What a treat!

After close to 3,000 miles, coming to Peter’s wonderful home was a welcome respite! Beautiful setting, gracious host, close to the Finger Lakes…how could anyone ask for more??? Seriously the nicest place we stayed between California and New York. As a first time Boondockers experience, I am hooked! Thanks again Peter!

Wonderful hosts

Had a very good stay with these hosts. Location is super convenient just a few miles off the Thruway. Quiet and restful spot. Hosts were ready for our arrival and gracious. We'd stay here again.
