Irv and Nancy are sweet fun kind. They stayed extra days and I hated to see them go. They are welcome back anytime.
Irv and Nancy are super. Great guests and are welcome back anytime.
We sure appreciated our guests. What a kind couple! We hope y'all pass back through and come see us again.
I rv and Nancy were a Joy to have. We had great time visiting. They are now full timers. It was fun to hear their stories and plans. They helped us with some of the apps they use in their travels. They are welcome back anytime. Eddie
Was able to meet Irv ad his wife. A+ people. I enjoyed our conversations and they are welcome back anytime.
Very nice couple. I was glad they liked it here. They will always be welcomed back
We felt like friends, from the time they said hello. We found that we had several things in common and plenty to talk about.
We certainly hope that our paths cross again in the future.
Thanks for stopping by, it was our privilege meeting you.

Hope to keep in touch with this couple and visit them when we travel to their location. So easy to host! A down-to-earth couple with whom we shared conversation that, to the unknowing, would have seemed like we had been lifelong friends. Don't miss a chance to meet them.
Warm, friendly welcome and a good, quiet spot to spend some time. Hosts left the morning after my visit (to go to their vacation spot) but stopped by to say goodbye; had no issue with me staying. The first night there, dinner was shared around a campfire with 3 other boondocker guests and our hosts. Highly recommend.
Great location and great hosts. We had hoped to get FHU site but wasn't available. Irv graciously offered us another spot and ran us water and electric. Had a nice potlock by fire and good conversation with them and other campers. Made us feel at home.
This place was great. Irvin (host) had a potluck for us and some other boondockers staying there and it was great to talk to people living the same life as us . They even gave us some fresh blueberries and zucchini from their garden. Great people to hang out with.
Both Irv and Nancy were delightful hosts and went well beyond normal host efforts. Four boondockers at one time with potluck shared around evening firepit.
Addition of few pounds air supplied by Irv's compressor saved me a trip into town.
Very easy "normal" folks. Good visit.
Thank you again.
Everything was wonderful for our quick stop overnight. Wonderful smell of trees in the air and plenty of room to pull through! The host was gracious and had power to hook up if we needed it. We arrived later than planned so the motion lights were a big plus. Thanks!
Irv and his wife Nancy were really wonderful to meet! I enjoyed spending time around the campfire and as a Boondocking newbie I was happy to discuss camping and travel, I learned so much! Look forward to seeing them again in the future!
They were very welcoming. Their place is tucked away in the woods and I heard the crickets all night. It was great to have a pull-through spot with all the amenities. I'd absolutely recommend them as hosts. Thanks!!
What gracious people. We really enjoyed meeting with them and visiting with them. Hopefully we'll get to meet up with them again in the near future.
This was our second visit to this location. This is easy to find, following the directions and easy access. Unfortunately, our schedule did not us to visit with our hosts’ this time but their son was available. We enjoyed the quiet nights and the shaded afternoon. We hope to see them down the road, soon.
This was our second stay at this beautiful location. The hosts were ever so gracious to allow us to pull in even though they weren't there to greet us. Another boondocker was there; one we'd stayed with a couple years ago. It
was great to catch up.We highly recommend you stay here. Oh...Ramunto's pizza place is just a few minutes down the road. Yummy!
Irv was an exceptional host and made our first experience using boondocks welcome a wonderful one. He has a great space for hosting and we loved the peacefulness of the area. Irv was very welcoming and kind. We would love to go visit again.
We had a very sweet time at In The Pines. They were SO kind to us. We enjoyed some conversation by their fire and got to learn more about them and their stories as we shared ours. Beautiful secluded spot to relax or explore!
Right on the scenic highway I was traveling..,couldn’t have been more convenient.
Never disappoints..Always a great place to stay… Close to everything… Walmart 15 minutes away… Brattleboro Vermont… Lots of good golf courses close by… Thanks so much to Irv
Host was able to accomodate us for the evening. There was no problem whatsoever fitting our rig (50ft truck and camper). It was a short stay with an awesome view of the stars. Thanks!
Wow! We loved this quiet spot in the woods. We spent one night while exploring New Hampshire. Lovely and peaceful. Extra bonus with hook-ups made available was very much appreciated! We didn’t get to meet our hosts this time, maybe another time.
We loved our stay and hope to return someday. This couple have worked hard for what they have and are truely good people. They love to share what they have. They are part of our family now for sure. Loved them both. I just can't say enough about how nice they are. And our time with them was great. At the lake was perfect.
I never met Irv but I did speak with him and text with him a couple of times he was very helpful… I did meet his son who showed me where everything was and he was a great person… A kind gentleman… The spot was level and has water and electricity what more could you ask for… Second night there were two deer 10 feet behind my camper… I requested three nights but only stayed two only because I was needed at home otherwise I would’ve stayed the full time and I don’t want my cancellation to reflect badly on the host !! It is 15 minutes from Brattleboro Vermont on route nine W. I believe… Where you can get just about anything you need and there is a Walmart 15 minutes away
This location is easy to find and provided water, electric and sewer as offered. Irv and his wife were generous host who communicated well and met us upon arrival with open arms. Irv walked us to the location, explained alternatives and made sure we were satisfied.
We had a lovely evening coffee and a great conversation.
We will request to stay again when in the area and very strongly recommend In the Pines.
Hope to see you on the road, or to host at our location.
I wanted a place for a few night but it was cold and raining so we decided to move west,only stayed one night, these people were so nice, him and also his wife one after the other help us on the phone to find the right place for us even if they were a 1000 miles away .... imagine ...making sure we had water and power, even their son a real gentlemen came to make sure we were ok,
would love to go back one day to shake their hand and say thank you,
from an old diesel mechanic to a welder, thank for everything A++++++
Kind, generous hosts. More than accommodating. We are so appreciative.
What a pleasure hosts were to visit with, and site was perfect. Could not have ask for more!! FHU and very quite and private.
They couldn’t have been any more welcoming. They did everything they could to accommodate all my requests including setting up access for Internet and helping me dump my black water at the last minute before I headed out on my journey. They’re wonderful to sit and visit with as they are full of knowledge and resources to support the RV lifestyle.
Truely delightful people!
Location is super convenient to explore the area. Had a great time visiting in front of a campfire. Cell access is possible with a booster, or perhaps on Verizon.
We can’t say enough about our host in the pines. We had an exceptional spot with 15 amp which meet our needs for a peaceful stay over. We visited friends in the area while boondocking and return after dark with no problems. Morning time allow us to sit and visit with our host and we shared stories about the different places they had visited and where we were headed. We were just sorry we didn’t catch the second night stay we had to move on and missed what was to be a terrific fish fry. We’ve promised to return with a rain check. Looking forward to our paths crossing again. Safe travels and we wish you health and happiness always.

We enjoyed the convenient location and fun hosts at this location.
We recommend them for sure.
Irv's property made for a great boondocking location, with plenty of space and a very convenient "pull-through" style setup. Very nice folks, and even though we were only there for an evening, had a great time and recharged our mental batteries! Had mobile internet/cell service with our WeBoost amplifier turned on. Thanks again.
Although owner was not able to be there, Granddaughter and Partner made sure we were all settled in and had everything we needed, thanks to you all :) We had a nice stop, hopefully Irv will be there if we get the chance to stop again.
We really enjoyed our time here. Just good people, beautiful place, and wonderful sights. As you can tell, I like to make my recommendations short and too the point. Thank you guys for being such great hosts and I hope you all are as lucky as we have been with all the great people we have met on our journey like yourselves.

Although IRV was not in town, he had family greet us and get us set up. He responded quickly to communications. Thanks so much for a great spot right on our route. Hope we can meet one-day.
"A 1" spot. They are great hosts. They had a nice location for us by there shop. Greeted us in the evening with a great bond fire. Spent a couple of hours talking of our families and travels. Thank You
Irv and his wife were very nice hosts. The weather was terrible but they made us hot homemade muffins that made us feel warm. Yummy!!!
Irv is a great host - even tho he was out of town - he was not out of touch - his grandson welcomed us and showed the way and Irv made a couple of calls to make sure our stay went well Thank you for that - I would recommend this host and hope to meet up with them some time on the road
We stayed with Irv and his wife for a few days. They were great hosts and even provided a personal tour of the area. Great company to sit a chat with.
A flat shaded spot near several lakes and ponds for canoeing or kayaking. The man, who has his office on this property, gave us many suggestions for places to go. We parked in a private wooded area, and spent 3 days canoeing on Willard Pond, Lake Nubanusit and Spoonwood Lake. All 3 were wonderful, and there are larger ones even closer. Then we came back to sit in chairs amongst the trees. We also walked the trail at nearby Chesterfield Gorge. The only downside was that our hosts were out of town while we were visiting. They were so kind to welcome us anyway, with a sign showing us where to park. Great place to park while you explore the local area's treasures. Thank you so much!
Another example of how friendly and welcoming "BoondockersWelcome" members are. We were invited to stay over while our hosts were travelling elsewhere. So, we didn't have a chance to meet, but hopefully we will on our next trip through. Thanks again!
