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.

Very Nice

I agreed to take my sister and her new husband on vacation in my rig after their wedding and we blew a tire in the middle of nowhere Montana and realized I didn't have my tire iron with us...and had brake issues we needed to get resolved in Kalispell. It all got worked out but I was exhausted and we were unable to find a camp site in flathead last minute on a Thursday....our rig issues threw us a couple days off of schedule. I was going on 2 hours of sleep in 3 days of mishaps and I accidentally messed up the dates for our stay...we rolled in a day sooner than we should have. They were super nice and understanding and let us squeeze my trailer in so we could stay. I was so exhausted and relieved that they allowed us to stay despite my mix up. The location is beautiful and everyone was very nice.

Great stay, great location!

Friendly hosts with more room than you could ever need. In fact, the day we pulled out there were 6 other campers there. If you need power, be sure to let them know before hand because there is one outlet on the out building. We ran about 170 feet of extension cord each night just to juice up the batteries while we slept. You will be welcomed with a handful of very useful pamphlets and maps on the area. Only about a 45 minute drive to Apgar village in Glacier National Park. Don't miss the opportunity for a great place to stay with friendly hosts.

Beautiful Spot, Gracious Host & Hostess.

We enjoyed visiting with our hosts and found the site to be the perfect place to spend a night not far from Glacier National Park.

I had the opportunity to spend a few more days on my return from Canada. The second stay was even more delightful than the first because now we are friends.

Thank you so much for all you did.

Great place to stay.

We had a lot going on during the time or stay at the Marty’s. We were able to see the national Park two of the days were there. We had a great time talking with our gracious host and learning about the area from him! We would love to come stay again sometime!

Hospitable Host with a beautiful setting!

We have loved our time on The Martys’ property. It’s beautiful, peaceful, and has provided our family with a safe and friendly place to call “home”. We are so thankful this wonderful couple for their hospitality and kindness - we wish them both lots of happiness and safe travels. Highly recommend this boondocking location.

Great people and a great experience

We stayed two nights with the Martys and it was a really great first time Boondockers Welcome experience.
They have a beautiful place in the country and it's so peaceful and quiet. If we ever come back this way we will definitely love to stay here again.
Thank you very much!

An excellent location with very welcoming, gracious hosts. Thanks for sharing your beautiful little bit of paradise. Super convenient to Kalispell, Whitefish and a day trip exploring Glacier. We really enjoyed our stay.

August 2019

great hosts

we loved staying here, they were very gracious hosts. They have room for 3-5 RVs of various sizes. based on 2 other 40 ft rigs already being here when we arrived, I did need to pull up along side the shop and back into a spot on the other side of the yard, but with a few spotters it was no problem. Alternatively, I could've pulled in more first and backed up along the shop for an easier (but less shaded) spot.

Very friendly hosts, great spot to stay!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. Close to both Kalispell and Whitefish, it was the perfect spot for base camp to explore the area. Our hosts were very friendly, even shared some fresh cherries they had just picked. They have a huge, level yard with room for 3 or 4 trailers/campers and still privacy for everyone. I would definitely recommend staying here if you have the chance.

This is a jewel of a place in a beautiful location. Convenient to Whitefish and Glacier NP. The “Martys” were the perfect hosts and pleasant to be with.

Beautiful and quiet with wonderful hosts

What a beautiful spot! And what wonderful hosts! We were SO lucky we found this spot but had no idea what a find it was until spending 3 nights there. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by our hosts, to the fresh cherries we were given and advice for the shared concerns with our cats, to the UTTERLY perfect spot we could not have been happier. We saw Glacier NP as well as the nice little town of Kalispell and had a nice kayak on Flathead Lake. Our hosts let us know about the space station passing over and invited me to watch their moonflowers opening. It's people like these 2 who make us so happy there is an organization like this! Thanks again to both of you!


Knowpax

Very welcoming host

They made us feel welcome immediately as we pulled into his driveway. They even gave us a bag of fresh cherries that were delicious. The location was level, quiet and close to Glacier National Park. We only spent one night and left early the next morning, but would love to return even if only to get to hear more of our host's adventure filled life.

Marty's Place is fantastic!

Thank you SO MUCH for being such an excellent host! The host location is gorgeous and the hosts are gracious, helpful, and friendly. We are absolutely thrilled with the people we have met in our BW stays and this for sure includes Martys AND his guests! They provided useful information and recommendations during our stay and visits to Glacier NP and Kailspell. We even got a special viewing of the ISS passing overhead thanks to our host's information. We highly recommend Marty's Place for a stay in the area. It's conveniently located to amenities and just about 30 minutes from Glacier NP west entrance. Thank you!

Not only is this boondocking location a perfect spot for a peaceful night,s sleep, but in addition we have met some of the nicest fellow RV,ers you,d ever want to know. A wonderful group of family. friends, and newcomers, all blended in to one exceptional stay. Thank you Marty!!!

Staying at Marty's was such a pleasure!

We felt so welcome at Marty's place! They truly understand the pleasures and difficulties of boondocking and make it as easy as possible on their guests. They host several RV's at once in their large, grass front yard. The Mrs. offered advice and materials on what to do while we stayed, which was so helpful. The RV was completely safe while we took an entire day and spent over 12 hours in Glacier National Park, returning at 2:00 a.m. It was wonderful to talk with the Mr. about their travels and hobbies! If we come back this way we will definitely ask to stay again!! Thank you SO much!!!

Marty’s graciously allowed us to stay on short notice. They were out when we arrived, but another guest directed us to an almost perfectly level spot in the lawn where we relaxed for the night. Great host. Great spot.

We had the best time ever staying with some amazingly wonderful hosts that were friendly, kind and very hospitable. I enjoyed visiting with them and being able to go and see and do things around the area. They come highly recommended from us and will definitely come see them again while in the area if they are there. Thank you so much for allowing us and the dogs to stay with you and be able to see a lot of the natural beauty in your neck of the woods. It was nice to have a place to relax and unwind for a few days. Bernie and Carol

Special hosts that we won't forget

The Martys are wonderful people and very welcoming and helpful hosts.
They made us feel at home and we had nice conversations with them.
The husband helped me to troubleshoot an issue with my truck and is very knowledgeable about RVs as well.
The wife showed us interesting flowers and blooming cacti.

Their property is easy to access, flat, and beautiful. The neighborhood is in a country setting with horses and many birds.

We had a very pleasant stay and would like to meet them again. Our son liked the hosts so much that he was sad to leave.

Ron was a wonderful host. The location where we parked was on grass between several large trees. Even though it was in front of there house it offered plenty of privacy. If we ever go to Kalispell or Whitefish then I would probably stay there again.

Fantastic

Martys are a fantastic couple. We enjoyed our stay there immensely.
They were also able to accommodate us at very short notice.
We came up through Yellowstone NP and phone reception was not very good through there.
I loved their biking stories and how they designed and built their house.
I would like to repay the favour some day at out place in Oz.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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).

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!

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.


AmberNSean

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.

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!

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.

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.

An oasis with gracious hosts

Our first Boondockers Welcome experience exceeded our expectations! Beautiful setting, warm friendly hosts, and great fun visiting with the hosts and the other guests staying at the same time. We'd love to visit these folks again. Sets a high bar for future stops.

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.

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!
