Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We like to travel and usually go for 4-6 week trips a couple times a year. We have relatatives in South Carolina, Arizona, and New England so try not to stay home too long. We also usually camp host for a month in the winter down south. While we're at home we do a lot of volunteering. We have a nice place to stop in a rural area near the Minneapolis St. Paul area. We live on a small lake. Very quiet and lots of nature.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Walmart. Actually we have stayed at a few and some aren't bad.

pauldornfeld's Hometown

Stillwater is on the scenic St. Croix River. We are near Minneapolis- St. Paul metro area and world famous Mall of America. There is an unlimited number of things to see and do near here. We are within a couple miles of interstate highways to anywhere.

Nice urban neighborhood!

We were on our way home after 5 days on the road & were curious to see this place so close to our own home. The added attraction of being able to take our bikes out for a ride was a plus. They were nice hospitable hosts with a very nice home! Thanks you two for letting us stay! Cheers!

Two Thumbs Up!

We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and chatting with these lovely hosts. They have a beautiful home on a small lake, and we sat with them on their deck for awhile. We parked in their driveway and enjoyed an electric hookup. It was dead quiet all night and we had a good night’s rest. Many thanks!

Quiet overnight stay in the middle of a thunderstorm

Paul came out to greet us as we pulled up, and it was an easy back-in for us onto his paved driveway. Lovely semi-rural location that worked great for us as the last stop on our trip exploring Stillwater. Him and his pleasant wife are travelers as well, and we shared some conversation just before the rain came again. A quiet night of sleep with the rain on our roof and no traffic noise, random headlights, or glaring streetlights. Thanks!

Very Positive Experience!

What a wonderful couple & a very positive experience all around! Our parking spot was quiet & level and made for a good night's rest. Paul & his wife graciously shared lots of info about things to do in the area including the quaint town of Stillwater, MN along the St Croix River where we had a great breakfast, browsed the antique shops & bookstores & enjoyed scenic views of the river. They also shared tips from their motorhome trips out west to help us with our future travels. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and an A+ experience in every way!

Exceptional hosts close to Minneapolis

Paul and Dede were kind enough to share their lakefront property minutes from downtown. Their driveway easily handled my 27 ft extended rig. They were gracious enough to help me with transportation options from St Paul to Minneapolis and were overall delightful people.
