Dark arrival, very quiet

Very quiet couple with grandkids, arrived late, we had 3 other RV's on the lot that had turned in for the night so we put them in our overflow area, very nice and very quiet which was great, we had to leave for work the next morning so we were unable to do a good meet and greet. They are welcome anytime.

Nice and good people

If all people could be like, the world could be better. Thanks for your hospitality when we arrive so late. We spend one night and it was so light. Continue to protect bees for all. Our daughters thanks you

A honey of a boondocking site

We spent 2 nights here and while the smoke from a local fire obscured the view of the mountains during the day we were treated to the most grogious sunset. We also were treated in so many other ways... concise directions, great conversation,a great insight on gardening and beekeeping... our host are real stars and honeys. Hope to connect again some time... btw I meant to ask about the raptor in the rafters...

Great views, Better Hosts!

My wife dogs and I thoroughly enjoyed our few nights stay. Waking up surrounded by mountains was great but conversation with our hosts was better! We will definitely be back next time we are in the area.

Beautiful Spot at the foot of the Bitterroot Mountains

A bit off the beaten path; but well worth it for the friendly hosts and the excellent views of the mountains! We would definitely stop by here again if we're in the area - if they let us :) Thanks!

Our recent stay

Clear and precise directions to their home, good communication, detailed maps to get to local attractions and greeting us in the yard -- great hosts! This couple is welcoming and genuine. We sat on their deck and talked about everything and nothing while getting acquainted. As we can't back up with our toad attached to our motorhome, they even made sure we could turn around in their yard without unhooking! Power and water were available. Glorious views of the mountains in a tranquil valley with wonderful hosts. If you need a place to park while in Montana, even if you have to detour out of your way, this is one stop you want to make. We hope to cross paths again. Thank you very much! A++. Best. Ever.

Beautiful and Quiet Setting -- Friendly Hosts

This was definitely a positive experience for us and hope to return if our path takes us this way again.The property has a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains and it was very quiet. Our GPS took us on a few gravel roads off of Hwy. 93 but the roads were graded and it wasn't a problem. These hosts are friendly, warm and welcoming and generously shared some veggies from their garden. We were even treated to a photo shoot of our *whole* family (including our two kitties). We would definitely recommend these fellow boondockers as hosts or guests. Thanks to snelson600 for sharing their lovely property as Boondockers Welcome hosts!
