We're newly liberated from railroading and the building trades,respectively. Loving more time for hiking, birding, gardening,skiing, boating, and hunting for elk and mushrooms. We are lifelong musicians so bring your instruments and voices.
We welcome last minute guests, lack of set-in-stone itinerary is one of the joys of RVing. But since we like to be here to greet you, please let us know as soon as you can if your plans change and we won't get to meet you.
We love to show off our neighborhood and can point you toward, or perhaps accompany you on, day hikes or backpacking excursions to fit most fitness levels, including the (justifiably) famous Devil's Causeway.. Also, we have most any tools you'd need for mechanical or general work, and might even have the know-how to use 'em.
Our slightly obsessive border collie, Woody loves to welcome guests. With wonderful off-leash walks right from our door, he knows he lives in dog heaven.
We recently augmented our pack with 3 baby Aussie Shepherd / Border Collies, Bessie, Jasper & Roscoe.
Throughout the western U.S. but especially Colorado and Utah.
We're 5 miles from the village of Yampa, home (in season) to the historic Antler's Bar & Café. It's 35 miles to Steamboat Springs and just a bit more to Vail and the Eagle River valley.
We travel in a 2006 Sprinter van, mostly converted (from a hospital transport), all do-it-ourself.
We had such a nice time at this location! The hosts were so welcoming and showed us a great place at the top of their property with the most amazing views! And it was so quiet. They are a really neat couple - wish we could have spent more time chatting with them but we'll be back!
We were so sad we couldn’t stay more than one night! The hosts were so welcoming! I especially enjoyed their new puppy dogs! Wonderful stay!
Wow. Where do I even start. Being this was my official launch into the nomadic world of lifestyle living and also my first stay with a BoondockersWelcome.com host, I could not have asked for a better experience. Tim and Dana are so warm, friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to included me in so many of their daily activities including awesome hikes on their vast and beautiful property, an open mike night at the local bar with Tim's incredible guitar playing and humorous song selection, and many wonderful and enriching conversations. And to top it off, a constant comical entertainment from their super smart dog Woody and puppies Bessie, Jasper & Roscoe — my own one year old pup Lily played and ran freely and endlessly like never before!
I would encourage anyone to make the trip to their place even if you just make it a destination. You'll come away feeling like you made friends for life. I will definitely be back!
John & Lily. :)
What a beautiful view we had. Great conversation and a wonderful visit with our hosts three new puppies. We did not have time to hike and explore the valley but will the next time we are in the area.
The Trowlands are perfect hosts and the countryside is beautiful!
They helped us level our camper and invited us to watch hummingbirds on their front porch, and the sunset over the hills! They were very accommodating but beyond that warm, funny and interesting! And they enjoyed having our kids around, you could tell. :-) We loved our stay with them and would be easily enticed for a return visit!
Thank you so much for everything! We enjoyed our stay and visiting with you!

Tim and Dana are fantastic hosts! Their property is beautiful with stunning views, and more hummingbirds than you could imagine. Tim was a huge help with a small leak in our hot water heater, and answered all my questions about backpacking. Dana took my wife and our daughter on a hike to search for wild mushrooms, they had a blast! The night before we left, we all went out for a great diner at the local Antlers restaurant. We will definitely be back to visit Tim and Dana and the beautiful area!
You can bet I’ll be back and make a point to visit this place again! Very friendly and helpful hosts. A-1!
Beautiful, quiet spot with gracious hosts! The drive there is spectacular at this time of year.
This host was so hospitable. I was unsure about my plans. He was very patient, accommodating and understanding. I wish I would have had a chance to make the stay work. I will just say "WOW! What a view."
High recommendation for these hosts! We had a so great time staying with them. They made us living in an american family and discover their way of life.... They took us discover their beautiful area... We had a wonderful evening around the fire, we wont forget it... Thanks so much!
