Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We enjoy time spent with family and friends, cooking and of course traveling. We are looking forward to retiring in a " couple of years" upgrading our rig and going full time. We are small business owners and have only traveled close to home on long weekends in our rig.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We both love to cook ( and eat! ). Lots of travel stories and great places to share. Axel is a jack of all trades and can fix just about anything that gets thrown at him.
We are in a great location accessible to many great places Maine to Massachusetts. Trips to Boston via train 1o minutes away. Local restaurants are plentiful and many excellent choices are nearby.

Wonderful hosts and perfect location for exploring

We were a little nervous about the proximity to the railroad tracks - but we actually enjoyed it very much! The train was minimally disruptive, and did not disrupt our sleep at all. The kids loved watching the trains throughout the day as well. I love that the parking spot was on a dead-end road that's not frequently traveled, so the kids could play outside without a lot of traffic coming by. We loved joining the hosts and another guest for a campfire our first night, and during the stay we visited boston, salem, and portland - all within 60-90 minutes (which for us is a reasonable day trip distance!). We had a great time, and loved meeting the hosts!!

Thanks!!

Definition of Welcome

Our stay at Nextdoor was just one night. The area is pretty remote and very industrial feeling but the kindness and generosity of the hosts were over the top! Offering services above many campgrounds we’ve stayed at and offers of any assistance needed, you won’t find yourself lacking here. Despite our overnight stay we will look forward to our paths crossing again one day!

Great hosts + location!

The hosts were not in town when we were, but were so easy to communicate with, and so generous with their hookup access! We love trains so being close to the rail and getting to see them go by was a highlight for us =) we would love to come back! Thank you for everything!

We love trains!

Sorry our hosts were traveling, so we didn’t get to meet them. The spot is very close to train tracks, but they didn’t come often or last long. We spent a rainy morning in a sweet little library nearby.

Life Long Friends

I had an excellent time with these two. They are the kind of people that become life long friends. Very friendly and fun to hang out with! Good food. Good conversation. And they both bend over backwards to make sure your stay is nice. Mine was! I would definitely stay here again. As a matter of fact, I hope to run into them on the road sometime. That would be awesome. I definitely recommend this place for any length of stay. Thank you Guys. Will see you again sometime. :D

Friendly, easygoing

Super friendly and easygoing hosts who know the area well and are very comfortable and knowledgeable about RV life. We spent most of our time in Boston and really appreciated being able to catch the train nearby-- weekender pass for $10 means we could ride in and out as much as we wanted for the two days.

Wonderful First Time

Many thanks to Bev and Axel for our stay. We felt safe and comfortable there, a plus with a family and not so sure sometimes on the road. Very thoughtful and accommodating hosts. Excellent and easy location. Thanks again, hope to see you soon!

Extremely Friendly and Welcoming!!

We cannot say enough great things about our stay here with nextdoor. They are the most gracious hosts and an absolute joy to be around. They were there to greet us when we arrived, assisted in backing our rig into its parking spot, extremely welcoming and attentive to everything we could possibly need during our stay. They are beyond knowledgable of the entire area which helped us get around to all the things we needed to do and see while we were there. We highly recommend reaching out for a stay!

Nice stop

Only stayed one night but it’s a good level spot with water, electric, and a place to dump. Trains go by very close to the spot but didn’t bother me at all.
The hosts are friendly and helpful.

Great stay!

Wow! What fantastic hosts! From the moment I arrived I felt totally welcome and comfortable. We shared at great night together with another boondocker. I wish I would have planned to stay longer. If I'm ever back in the area I will definitely be calling them! Thank you!!

Very welcoming

Great hosts! I was nervous about the trains but found them very interesting after awhile. Most were short in duration offering little distraction. These guys have a great setup going! Water, electric and dumping. And a great sense of humor that made you feel like you had known them for years!

Excellent First BW Experience!

The Hosts were kind and helpful beyond our hopes. Our first night, the Hosts sat outside with us and visited over an Adult Beverage. They happily allowed us to stay an additional day. They even allowed us to use their Utilities. There's a small store, Post Office and Restaurant less than a block away.

Thank you for breaking us in

Great first experience with vast knowledge of the RV life. Made to feel very welcomed and could ask anything. Great location and the trains made it better.
Thank you for all you shared.

NH Hospitality

Next door were very gracious and welcoming hosts from the time we arrived, until we left. Assisting in getting us settled in, and offering any assistance they could provide, made us feel right at home. The host site was very level, quiet (with exception of occasional train runs), convenient to small store and local great pizza. We appreciate their hospitality, and hope to meet up with nextdoor again to share more stories.

Awesome Hosts for our first Boondocking experience.

Coming from a boating community background, Boondockers Welcome is the community for RVers. Our hosts, Nextdoor, are true Ambassadors for the Boondocking community. The site location is in a small picturesque town but centrally located. B & A made us feel right at home. We shared lots of stories and laughs. Met very nice friends and family of the Host, looking forward to seeing them again where we are from in SW Florida.

outstanding

We travel on in our RV for business. We are professional Crafters. Sometimes we do well and sometimes not so much. So traveling through Boondockers helps keep our overhead low. We arrived Friday evening and the owners of the property were gracious enough to allow us to park there, when they weren't home. They gave us very accurate directions. The allowed power and water hook-up. We did see them just prior to heading to bed. Very inviting and sincerely in tune with our needs. We had to be on the road the following morning at 5am for one of our shows, we got back later that evening absolutely wiped out. They were gracious enough to welcome us back to the evening but also gave us the space for a nice quiet night. The following morning, they greeted us again very concerned about how our show went and it's just nice to know that there are good people out there who are willing to share their property with others with no motivation for personal gain other than wanting to bless someone else. Couldn't be happier meeting our new friends. Thanks again!!

They have trains!

Nextdoor were great hosts, fitting us in along with 2 other rigs. Warm and welcoming they made us feel at home. They have a very large property, with plenty of room for all.
If you like trains this is the place, the Downeaster flys by at over 60 with the freight trains more sedately. They stop running for most of the night so sleeping is no problem.

Super Hosts !

B & A give us great ideas and directions to briefly experience the region. It is almost overwhelming trying to see and visit all the local historical towns and beach communities in a short visit. We enjoyed our daily happy hour, potluck and dinner together with our new long term friends. We hope to meet up on the west coast in the future.

Wonderful First Stay

This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and these Hosts made it a great experience. They were very welcoming of our family and had good insight into the area and what there is to do. We would not hesitate at all to stay with them again!

Gwen and Axel let us park at their place over Memorial Day weekend. They have a great space! We can’t wait to return the favor.

WOW Stay here!

What was the best part of staying here?
Was it the close proximity to Gloucester, Salem, or the train to Boston? Was it having full hookups or being able to stay twice as long as we planned? There is all that but the best part was our hosts, Bev and Axel. They are most kind and generous people we have the good fortunate to meet not only on the road but in our life. We have made lifelong friends and will be travel companions. We shared numerous dinners. Happy hours and extensive conversations with them and their family.
If you are in the area do yourself a favor and stay with them. You won't regret it.
See you soon Bev & Axel😁

Neighbors from Next Door

Nextdoor’s host location is easy to get into and very well positioned for visiting the city of Boston and the Massachusetts coast. A post office, convenience store and pizza joint are a short walk away. Any other services are less than 5 minutes away.
Our hosts were welcoming and made us feel right at home, made sure we had anything we needed including electric, water and a sewer dump. They were a wealth of knowledge both on the local area and just about any where else.
We really enjoyed the afternoon get togethers.
We very highly recommend these hosts and this location.
Will request again when in the area.

Top Notch Hospitality

Location was very quiet and host was very welcoming. Although they could not be here with us, they did meet us upon arrival to make sure that we were in the correct location with everything we needed. They also saw us off and invited us back if we ever were in the area again. We will definitely keep them in our contacts. They were both very nice and helpful!

Delightful

B & A are two of the nicest people. They were both so generous and helped us with set-up, hookup and dumping. Being a relatively new RVer their support was extra meaningful.
Loved hearing their stories too.

Wonderful stay!

Bev and Axel where such kind people! We loved staying on their property. They were so nice to our kids. Our kids loved them, their cat, Bitsy, and the chocolate bar that axel gave our daughter. (:

The location was great, close to lots of restaurants and apple orchards. The train into Boston is a must do.

We would love to come back one day.

Thank you Bev and Axel!

Instant friends

We were immediately greeted upon arrival by this super friendly couple and felt right at home. The parking was level and long enough for our 65 ft of motorhome and cargo trailer without unhooking. We really enjoyed our visit and are so happy to have met these fellow rv’ers. Can’t wait to meet them on the road some day! :)

Great visit with amazing people

Bev and Axel were amazing hosts who provided a spacious peaceful place to stay for 5 nights. They are a sweet couple who are very helpful and knowledgeable.
We really enjoyed having meals with them and meeting their family.
We had great conversations and got some helpful tips for our travels.
We look forward to meeting up with them on our way back down from Maine in a few weeks!

This was our first boondockers welcome stay, and we had the best time. Spot was great; large, level, and grassy. But the hosts were better! They invited us to cookout, we had an awesome time with their friends and family. Hope to meet up with them again in our travels. Great to have new friends!

The look and feel of a small town

We really enjoyed our stayover here. There was a passing train from time to time, but otherwise it was a quiet small town. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and our parking spot level and grassy. We would be happy to return whenever we're in the area.

SUPER nice people!

We stayed with these great folks for 3 nights. They were so friendly and helpful, and very interesting to talk to. We didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked because we were out exploring the area during the day. Their place is convenient to a lot of great destinations like Boston, Gloucester, Rockport, Salem, etc. There is a railroad track very nearby, but it wasn't a problem at all for us. Great boondocking spot!

Nice place, very friendly people!

We had a great time, these are very friendly and helpful people. It was our first time boondocking, so we weren’t sure what to expect. They responded very quickly too, so it was easy to arrange things. Thanks again, guys!

Friendly and welcoming hosts! Great stopover on our way along the coast.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - don't let the train tracks keep you away! Warm and welcoming hosts, we enjoyed spending time with them and were invited to their son's home for a cookout! Trains were infrequent during our stay, and when they weren't coming through it was a very quiet area and completely safe. Nice level and hard-packed site. Our 38,000 lb coach didn't sink in at all, even in rainy conditions. In our 40 foot MH we encountered a few branches on the approach road and it's a narrow rural road but doable if you go slow. Walmart/fuel/groceries were less than 15 minutes away. We would stay here again if we were in the area. Host is very knowledgeable about plumbing, electrical, and all things RV and may be able to give you tips if you're interested.

what a beautiful, interesting and exciting place!

what a beautiful, interesting and exciting place!
the cat, the son's dog, the hosts and all the people around are all very friendly, peaceful, helpful and know a lot of interesting and exciting to tell.
my parking space was next to a huge, old and beautiful maple tree, 20 steps away is a superstore, a post office and a pizzeria.
i don't want to tell you too much, you have to have this unique experience to stay here.
so let's go to the host "nextdoor" !
i'm already planning to come back here in a year, i just hope the hosts will be there again.
thank you very much for the very nice and cordial stay with you.

We found the location easily and our hosts were there to meet us and welcome us warmly - even though they had leased this house and were moving everything out to live in their RV. It was quiet and peaceful. Hope the spot will be available in the future.

We arrived late, but the spot was well marked and easy to find with more than enough room for our 24ft rig. We had a nice breakfast with our hostess and her sister the following morning. We would love to run into them again!

Friendly, welcoming couple

We recently stayed with NextDoor as our first Boondockers Welcome try. This couple received us like part of the family. we joined them for a great 4th of july celebration with family, friends and neighbors. We always felt welcome and the site was great. We were far enough from the house that we could run our generator without them even hearing it. 20 min from the beach and a nice little town. We hope to see them again someday to hear how their plans work out. Thanks again.
