Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We enjoy meeting people with similar interests and completely different too. We know how nice it is to have a safe place to spend a night or two. Been there looking for a place while it is getting darker and darker. We like to travel without too many plans, as plans are only made to be broken. Sometimes the best times are when you play it by ear. So fun seeing different country with your bedroom along.

Great Couple

We enjoyed hosting and sharing travel stories with Lilly Ann and Ron during their travels through Northern CA. They stayed for 3 nights and were joy to host. We hope to see them again.

Good Time

They spent only one night with me but we spent several hours sharing stories. Turns out we had a lot in common. I hope to visit them some time in the future.

Wonderful couple

The Marty's were our first Boondockers at our place and if others are like them, I hope we stay full with campers. We had a delightful time just chatting on the porch with them. Just wonderful people. Now we just have to get up to their place.

Our first boondocker stay was wonderful. Our hosts surprised us with soup and a fabulous huckleberry crisp when we arrived. So nice after a long day driving. The spot was beautiful and quiet. We couldn’t ask for nicer hosts.

We're Spoiled Now

Such a pleasure staying with this couple. They are the grandparents everyone wish they had. The 6 acre property is lovely and our children and dogs loved running wild. They are also close enough to town to get everything you need. Highly recommend!

Amazing hosts!

What can we say that has not already been said?

We were exploring this area in late July midweek and everything was full. We made contact and right away we were invited to stay for 3 nights. This was our first stay with Boondockers Welcome, and what a wonderful experience. Super nice folks, great location and great RV sites! We had conversations, were invited up for a glass of wine and then they sent us off with freshly picked Flathead cherries!

Macy, our dog, is normally shy around strangers but she loved these folks!

Thanks for the great stay!

Above and Beyond

Since we were having problems with the generator the Marty's offered us another nights stay so he could work on our generator. We thought that was above and beyond anything we expected of a boondocking host.

Country setting central to Glacier, Kalispell and the Flathead Valley

Two wonderful hosts you just have to meet and the location is central to Glacier Park, Columbia Falls and Kalispell’s restaurants and shopping. We stayed 3 days. We drove up in to Glacier Park, the west entrance is only a short 20 minutes away. Parking is on green level lawn and there is plenty of room for other Boondockers to have privacy. There were two other 5 th wheeler Blondocking Guest enjoying this great site. We will plan to return in 2019, safe travels everyone! We stayed in our 34' Keystone Toyhauler

Wonderful hosts!

We had a lovely time staying at Martys. We easily fit our 30' TT on their beautiful property. They were kind and welcoming hosts. They have some great stories from their travels and even taught us a few things about trailer maintenance.

Great Boondocking with wonderful host.

Staying at Martys was like being at home, very laid back and relaxing. Really enjoyed just sitting and talking. Property was beautiful with trees, flowers and a level grassy areas to park. Hosts were friendly and accommodating, it felt like we have known them for years. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful stay!

We had so much fun staying on Lilly Anne and Ron’s open and breath taking property! They were so kind to us and to our children. We are so grateful to them for hosting us in such a beautiful city. I would love to come back here again one day. Our daughter still talks about the wide, open spaces where she was able to run free in nature. What a great memory for our family. 😊😊

Wonderful!!

The hosts were wonderful people. This was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and it was fabulous. The hosts were so helpful and taught us a lot about our RV and gave advice on things to do in the area. I highly recommend them and hope we can return the favor one day.

A Perfect Spot

We had an enjoyable and relaxing stay! It was a perfect spot away from the hustle and bustle of Kalispell but close enough for all the conveniences of the town! We received a warm welcome and felt at home right away! The host even gave us a bag of freshly picked cherries!! They were delicious and added a nice touch of kindness and thoughtfulness! Couldn't be happier with our first - time Boondocker's Welcome experience! Thanks Bunches!

Beautiful People, Beautiful Sites.

Marty's hosts are great fun to sit and talk with. We stayed 4 days and visited near by Glacier Park. NO services available, so come prepared. The first day was warm, low 90s but we were lucky it cooled for the next few days. Hosts like Moscato wine, and this maybe a great arrival gift! Have fun and treat these friendly people great.

Fantastic Stay

We stayed with Ron and Lillie for a few nights before heading up to Banff National Park in July. We loved staying with them, and chatting with them both. They have a beautiful piece of property and couldn't have been more welcoming hosts! We enjoyed their company so much, we will definitely keep in touch!

Wonderful!

Staying at Marty's was just wonderful. They have a beautiful property, no leveling required, and shade! We really enjoyed visiting with Ron and Lilly Ann, seeing their gardens and just sitting relaxing and talking. This is a great location for being close to everything, and yet so wonderfully separate from everything.

We would love to have the opportunity to stay at Marty's again in the future.

Wonderful Hosts to First Timers

Beautiful location with amazing host! Cordial and friendly. Our Boston Terrier enjoyed some off leash time! I can’t imagine a nicer stay anywhere. What a great way to begin our travels with Boondockers Welcome!
Thank you Hosts!

Great location and hosts!

This couple was so wonderful and hospitable! They welcomed our family for 4 nights while we made day trips into Glacier NP and visited the surrounding area. There is plenty of room for multiple rigs and the location is perfect - on the outskirts of Kalispell. The hosts generously gave us a huge bucket of cherries they picked at a local orchard! Super great experience!!

What can I say about this host that has not already been said
REMARKABLE! Very generous, engaging. and giving. What a beautiful place to hang your hat for a few days. Grassy site, nice shade. Beautiful grounds. Very interesting couple who have lived in the area all their lives.We are so grateful for their hospitality and many conversations. Such a delight! Again, REMARKABLE! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. ♡♡♡

Wonderful stay!

We really enjoyed our time at this beautiful place. The hosts were delightful and we enjoyed getting to know them over the most amazing huckleberry buckle. We also got to see their beautiful moon flowers bloom! Thank you for opening up your place! Looking forward to coming back!

Top spot

What a pleasant camp!
We’re a little tardy with this reference but that no way reflects any aspect of our stay with Marty’s....only lack of internet access.
They have plenty of space with multiple sites to pick from and the hosts could not be more helpful and welcoming. Position wise it’s a short drive to Glacier NP and surrounds.
Our chat over a beer on the front deck made our stay just that little bit special. Just make sure you’re there by 9:30pm to get the moonflower experience....new for us Aussies.
Wish we could have stayed longer and got to know our hosts better...I’m sure we could have become great mates.

Fantastic stay!

This couple was truly amazing and their property absolutely breathtaking. Their home is built into a hillside and is surrounded by amazing flowers that were were invited to see bloom (moon flowers). We shared wine with them and wished we didn’t have to leave to travel to our next destination. Hope to see them again soon!

Lovely, perfect stay!

This couple is so kind and accommodating. Lilli Ann gave us info on the local surroundings. Ron told us about the area, growing up and working there, and ablut birds in the meadow that he has befriended.

The yard is beautiful and spacious, surrounded by grasslands, farms, and wooded hills with mountains in the near distance. The local area is also beautiful and the home conveniently located - just a short drive from Glacier National Park, which we really enjoyed.

Thanks so much for having us! We loved it!

Sweet couple, peaceful spot

Ronnie and Lillyann are such sweet, kind and helpful hosts. They have lived in Kalispell for 34 years and are a wealth of information for the area. DO stay here if you want to be in a beautiful, peaceful place that is close to shopping and Glacier National Park. Highly recommended!

Peaceful stay in central location.

MARTYS is located near lots to see and do in the Flathead Valley. Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating during our short stay. We were so busy while we were there we did not get to spend much time with them, but we plan to come back again and stay longer. Highly recommend MARTYS if you are in the area.

Ideal location

MARTYS is the ideal location not only to visit Glacier but also to explore the flathead valley area. There seems to be lots to do every day of the week in the local area and the MARTYS will be able to direct you very easily as they have been here for 30 years.
They are incredible hosts and beautiful people and we are very lucky to have met them and the other boondockers at there remarkable piece of paradise.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your world with us.

Amazing Hosts, Beautiful Property, Great Company

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Martin's. They are such lovely people! We are grateful for their hospitality and their grounds (property) was gorgeous. We loved looking at their wildflowers and enjoyed taking a motorcycle ride up to Going to the Sun road with the host. They are very generous and I'm sure you will enjoy your stay here!

Quiet and Peaceful Stay

This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and our initial experience couldn't have been better. Ron and Lilli Ann were immediately welcoming and gracious hosts. Their property is beautiful and conveniently located to town. Throughout our stay we had nice conversations with Ron and Lilli Ann as well as the other guests staying here. Martys will be the benchmark by which in we compare all other stays....WONDERFUL!

Wonderful Stay in Montana

We had a fantastic stay at Marty's. The property is gorgeous, so peaceful and very easy to find. Our hosts were so welcoming. They had some local info for us when we arrived which was very helpful. We enjoyed chatting in the mornings and when we got back from exploring Glacier. We are very thankful for the hospitality we received and hope to see our hosts again someday.

MARTYS is a nice place in the country with plenty of space. The hosts are friendly, easy going, and helpful. We were greeted and given suggestions of things to do in the area. I highly recommend MARTYS if you are in the area. We hope to come back again.

Great quiet place to park

We needed a place to stay near Glacier NP and so glad we found this spot. This couple was so friendly and accommodating to us for our visit. There was another rv there when we arrived and yet another one arriving when we left. They say the more the merrier. The countryside is so beautiful yet close enough to a town to get what you need. We would love to come back and visit with them and stay longer. It was so nice meeting them and talking to them.

Great place to park

We stayed at martys in early August, 2017. Great place to park - flat, grassy area with a choice of sun or shade. Close to town if you are in need of supplies, far enough away to be in the country. Easy to find, and a good approach. We had a very restful night at their quiet country place. Enjoyed chatting in the evening after arriving & in the AM as we were preparing to leave. Would definitely recommend martys if you are planning a visit to the Kalispell area.

Such a wonderful couple and great conversation!

The Martys were amazing hosts who welcomed us right in and even helped us plan for our trip to Glacier National Park. We really felt a connection with them and hope to see them in the future. Site was beautiful and despite the wildfire smoke, had some aromatic trees. Thanks again!

perfect spot, very nice people!

We stayed with the Martys one night on they way through to Whitefish. The location is perfect, it's a very beautiful place and the Martys are very kind, helpful people. Loved to learn about how they built the house and how they integrated it with the hill.

Wonderful!

We had the best time staying here for 3 nights as our base for exploring Glacier National Park. Our hosts were so accommodating - offering several spots to choose from. Their place was easy to find and a cinch to park in, their communication was excellent and they were very helpful and accommodating. This was also a beautiful place - quiet and gorgeous views! Highly Recommend!

Gracious Hosts!

We had the pleasure of meeting the Martys in early August, 2017 while staying with them to explore Glacier National Park. They were so welcoming and provided valuable information about the area that made our trip much more enjoyable. We got to chat with them each day about our respective adventures and truly loved being on their beautiful property. They even share some of their freshly picked huckleberries with us one morning, a first-time treat for us!

A tranquil Boondocking experience

As Australians, we wanted to visit Glacier National Park. Martys was the perfect place to base ourselves to do this. Martys was very helpful with suggestions and directions. The manicured lawns were welcoming as was the shade of the willow trees on their 6 acre property on the outskirts of Kalispell.
We would enjoy seeing them in Australia one day. Thanks for the shared experiences.

Loved this couple, retired adventurers, great boondocking!

We had Glacier National Park on our bucket list for many years and were excited to find this nice retired couple who are still super-active. Great stories of adventure, taking their motorcycle up to Alaska in the 70s, boating, 4-wheeling, you name it. Treated us like family from the get-go. They are lifetime Flathead County natives having grown up and gone to school in the area. There wasn’t much local they didn’t know about. Their big spread with all the grass and trees made for a fantastic Boondocker spot for the few days we spent. And we did feel Welcome. Nice cat, too. Sure hope to catch up with the Martys next time through or maybe in AZ!

Great hosts / friends for life!!

While visiting Kalispell in July we found a motorhome for sale that we wanted to buy, then we had to find a buyer for the old rig. These guys were wonderful, offering help and advice to make the transition from the old to new rig so much easier. Both the hosts and their property make a perfect combination for a Boondockers Welcome location. We hope they are able to make the trip to Australia so we can try to match their hospitality.
Thank you so much guys.

Also, a big thank you to Marianne for creating Boondockers Welcome, otherwise we would never have had the opportunity to meet these guys!!

Excellent Hosts

We stayed here for 5 days. Excellent hosts, very friendly . Their property was a boondocker's dream; trees, grass, level, and lot's of birds. We hope they will let us return in the future, one of the highlights of our 6,500 mile journey.

Beautiful Property and Fantastic Hosts!!!

We planned on staying one night but they allowed us to extend our stay so we could get some things fixed on our truck. Plenty of room for our 35' fifth wheel with a spectacular view of the flathead valley and mountains all around. Beautiful property. They also have one of the coolest houses we have seen! We enjoyed getting to know them during our stay and hope to visit again. Thank you guys so much for everything!

A Must See Destination

From a breathtaking view of the Flathead Valley, Marty's wonderful property and hospitality creates a superb launching point to experience all of Kalispell's unique features. Recreation abounds: fishing, hiking, biking, floating, shopping and dining are all within reach. They are such wonderful hosts, though, you might not want to leave the farm. We camped in a beautiful shady setting tucked in front of a field of picturesque prairie grass. You don't want to miss this destination.


Paul and Kathy

Great hosts!

We stayed 3 nights. Parked next to the garage. Had electricity and water. Plenty of space for our truck camper and enclosed trailer. They lead us on a motorcycle tour of the area-beautiful! Had a great time getting to know them and hope to see them this winter in AZ. 2 more guests dropped in while we were there; was very nice meeting them too.

Wonderful Host!!!!

We were thrilled and delighted to get to know our wonderful Hosts. Their homestead was beautiful with mowed rolling green areas and wild areas that thrilled our dog because she could run and play off leash. They let us stay four nights and also provided some excellent deserts for our mutual dining pleasure. They are very kind, gentle, and caring people and we hope to be able to visit them again. Our dog loved them and, in turn, they were very tolerant of our dog running around the property liked she owned it.

Beautiful Place and Wonderful People

We couldn't have had a better experience here. Their hospitality and overall sweetness was so welcoming for us. This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome, and they have set the bar high!
The area is also gorgeous and plenty of room. Our dogs loved running in the grass surrounding the area, and we liked being pretty close to town to run some errands.
We hope we will cross paths again!

A change of plans.....

Martys was great in the planning stages of my stay with them. They had no issue with me shortening my stay and then I was offered to stay in the Boondockers spot I was already camping in, in the same area. I hope to come back and stay with them when I am back in the area again!
