The owner waited for us til we got there very late in the evening and led us to a spot to park. Stars are gorgeous, land is beautiful and the animals were so cool.

Awesome host/location

So far every host we have stayed at has been wonderful! Heart of the Country is no exception. Great host, so friendly! Nice, quiet location close to parks, beaches and seafood. Plenty of room for my class A 34’ with tow.

Wonderful location and host!

Such warm hospitality and openness to strangers, we were really made to feel at home at haledw's beautiful property. The electricity worked great, I got the best nights sleep I've had in 2 weeks surrounded by the peaceful loblolly pines and sounds of nature. Great guy to sit a spell and chat with; The friendly animals were a plus! Highly recommend and would come back :)

Beautiful and peaceful property!

Wonderful host and property! Driveway entrance is a little narrow and could be a challenge for bigger rigs. We enjoyed our stay and we will visit again. Be sure to stop and say hello to Hercules the donkey and his friends.

Such A Beautiful Farm

Wow this place was just gorgeous and the hosts were amazing!

Beautiful spot

The trees here are stunning. We had issues connecting to the WiFi, but the hosts were more than accommodating to make sure we had what we needed and we enjoyed chatting with them and getting to know them and their beautiful animals. Thanks so much for having us!

Beautiful property

Host was very accommodating on short notice. It's nestled back in the pine trees. Will definitely stay here again if our travels lead us this way again!

Super peaceful

Dave and Judy are super hosts. They offered for us to join them. It was Mother’s Day and decided that they should spend it with their family. This was the first time that a 39 foot class A stayed there. We would advise not to try the turn around by the house because it’s just too tight for a big rig. They just need to drive in on the right.

Blue Ribbon Host

A precious couple in the hidden pines of Bay Minette.
You really must meet them if you haven't yet.
Their trees are towering, so very lush and green.
Campsite is level, comforting and clean.
Our first boondocking adventure, one we'll never forget.
You'll love it there too, on that we'd both bet.
Both of them are pleasant, knowledgeble and such gracious host.
Not sure if we liked them or their animals the most. ( joking of course).
So welcoming and friendly, all kidding aside.
Glad we took the drive on that Alabama ride.
They have mules and pony's, chickens, dogs and more.
Not to mention their delicious blueberries galore.
For Boondockers hosting, this couple has the knack.
To The Heart of the Country, we hope to one day go back.

Wow! Heart of the Country checked all our boxes.

Quite, easy in/out, wildlife, hiking, super nice hosts, close to town. AND we were blessed with farm animals: Eunice, Hercules, Ernie, and others to many to name them all. Thanks you for a restful and educational visit.

So very pleasant

What a pleasure to meet Dave and Judy and their menagerie of animals! A beautiful, peaceful haven. Would love to visit again if ever in their neck of the woods.
