Very Pretty Stay

We loved our stay here. It's a pretty, semi-rural setting with a charming village. The local movie theatre and pub were great. Very handy for getting to Boston by ferry or train.

Very accommodating hosts who move their RV to free up the spot....thank you!

Boondocking stay in Hingham, MA

Great stop for us westerners!!! Gracious and interesting hosts. We especially appreciated learning about some local family history and admiring a beautiful 1950 Chevy.

Wonderful place and couple

I had a lot of fun going into Boston just an hour away on my birthday. There’s plenty of things close by including a Planet Fitness which is always nice for a workout and a shower. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again if they would have me and would welcome them to either of my properties in Colorado!

Wonderful!

They are perfect hosts, and the parking spot we used was very beautiful and quiet. Plus, they play pickleball! :)
We would be honored to stay on their property again.

Great host & exceptional location

Wonderful folks and very thoughtful, always making sure everything is all right. Thanks so much for sharing such a location with boondockers. Just a boat ride away from downtown Boston.

A PERFECT COMPLIMENT TO BOSTON!

Rod & Janet are a fun couple to sit & talk with. They have a beautiful home & a large backyard of several acres. It was my goal to visit Boston, Rod suggested that I take the nearby Ferry across the Boston Harbor. WOW! How convenient & a pleasurable trip on a beautiful day. I enjoyed & very much appreciated my visit to On The Farm. I hope that I may return again! Chuck

Wonderful people, and wonderful spot!

It’s hard to imagine a more beautiful spot to boondock. A canopy of trees in a spacious backyard, complete with an electric hookup if need be. Rod was also a most gracious host, responsive, warm and very helpful. This was our first and only use of this service (so far), and this experience makes us want to do more.

Beautiful place, great hosts

Thanks to Rod and Janet for such a warm welcome. Arrived late and Rod was waiting for me with a flashlight to take me to the back. Nice to wake up on the beautiful wooded area and chat with the hosts about our camping adventures.

Lovely place and people

On the Farm are wonderful hosts with a beautiful place. We enjoyed staying and were able to explore Boston. We recommend taking the commuter boat rather than the train into the city, but both work. Kind hosts who had lots of helpful info — we would definitely stay here again if we came back to the area.

Fabulous Hosts and Location

We highly recommend a stay at this location. Our hosts were most accommodating and generous. Their local knowledge and suggestions about places to visit greatly enriched our visit. The setting is safe, very peaceful and nicely shaded.

Gorgeous setting

We were overwhelmed by the beauty of this spot. Best of all, we were greeted with a big smile and a warm welcome. Only a 10 min cycle or 25 min walk to the Boston Commuter train. Hingham has a rich history to reveal too. They are a really lovely couple and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Very nice and so good

Thnx. It was great. Nice spot in the ‘park’ behind the house. Very kind to taxi us to the boat for Boston. Om in het Nederlands te blijven.... een super plek.

Wonderful Hosts

Rod and Janet were really wonderful hosts. They offered all that they could to assist us, and more. The weather was grey and chilly, but we still had a wonderful stopover and respite from the road On the Farm. Keep an eye out for the wild turkeys, and be sure to try and mimic their call, they will respond! :)

Thanks for everything Rod and Janet.

Best wishes,

What a nice couple. I've stayed with them a couple of days and they've been very accommodating. If I come through here again I'll certainly contact them.

Maine attraction

This boondocking site is a quiet spot beneath the trees in a beautiful area of Maine. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming and it was great to hear their stories about the local area. They are just a couple of miles from the ferry to Boston which is a scenic and relaxing way to approach this vibrant city. Great hosts and we thank them for their hospitality.

Wonderful, quiet stay on Boston's South Shore

From our request to stay "On the Farm", to the quick, and timely response, Janet and Rod were very curtious and professsional :)
Although we arrived a bit early, they had a warm greeting for us, and made sure that we would be comfortable during our stay, and the overnight stay was wonderful, quiet, and easy going for us.
The access to their driveway was easy, and there is no doubt we will return if in the area again. THANK-YOU Rod & Janet

Great location to tour Boston from.

This location was our first boondocking experience through Boondockers Welcome and it was a good one! Our Hosts were lovely and their 'campsite' was perfect; close to public transportation into Boston either by train or ferry. They were very responsive when contacting on-line and generous with their time when we visited. We had a fabulous time.

Georgeous and peaceful!

We stayed 2 nights on the farm! It's a peaceful setting with lots of shade. Kept us cool and made for good sleep! Great spot for smaller motorhomes. Blessed with the presence of a couple wild turkeys roaming the property. Very cool to watch! Close to downtown area and harbor. We road our bikes to dinner and enjoyed walking along the harbor. Our hosts we very accommodating and told us about a local parade we attended the next morning with our 3 year old daughter! Hope to see them in Indiana when they complete their visit to the states east of the Mississippi!

Autumn Wonderland!

We stayed at "On the Farm" for 2 nights early November. Having visited Salem, we got stuck driving through rush hour Boston traffic on the way there, and with the sun setting around 4:30pm, we arrived there and it was already dark... They welcomed us and offered us to park near the house or out in the yard, among some big trees - that they have fairy lights set up in! With the lights on, and the colorful leaves on the ground, it looked like an autumn wonderland! We set up near the trees, and they kindly lent us an extension cord to reach the power source. I did some yoga in the yard. The next day we took our bikes and rode to the ferry. We did a whole day riding around Boston, the Freedom Trail, etc. Unfortunately we didn't get to say goodbye as they were at an overnight retreat - but they told us "stay as long as you like" before they left :) Very sweet couple, and gorgeous spot to stop if you are ever in the area! Thank you for having us! Maybe we will run into you in FL this winter!
