Garden Bounty

Great place to stop, level site, very quiet, close to shopping, restaurants and groceries.
Generously shared the bounty of their garden.


August 2021

Quaint & Quiet

Great spot to base for paddling Taylor Pond. A surprise, only moments from town. Pond access a short walk through a great neighborhood. Paddling was great, very low-use, quiet pond.


August 2021


Outstanding host and great swimming! Thank you Mistou for providing us with our first boondocking experience! It was an awesome experience!

Beautiful Souls

So grateful to have this met this lovely, gracious family. I enjoyed my stay here so much. Water and electric was easily accessible and there was a nice beach area nearby as well. Thanks for being so welcoming and accommodating πŸ™πŸ»

Generous Hosts

Water and Electric hook up. Great hosts!


July 2021

Great Spot, Accommodating Host

Communication with Mistou was easy and clear. The spot was easy to locate, and very private. Water and power were available, although we had enough in the fresh tank. We did utilize the power to run the fridge and a fan. We had a pleasant stay, and would love to reserve again, as it is a great way for us to knock a couple hours off trips to Northern Maine.


July 2021

Peaceful & Beautiful camping spot

This was our first boondocking adventure and I can't recommend The Green House enough. We had a great time in a secluded site in the trees. Hook up for water and electric was provided. Five stars all the way! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

Unbelievably Perfect

Absolutely gorgeous spot. We will for sure return someday.

Great people

Very nice day highly recommended

Neat little lakeside oasis in suburban Auburn

We were happy to spend about 16 hours in a Sweet little field in a cool lake community of summer and year-round cottages. This is a great place for a well behaved dog as the neighborhood dogs are running around off leash. We took an evening and morning walk with our hound in a nearby wooded area with lots of old trails. Slept well in a very quiet place, occasionally serenaded by loons. Loons are an indication of a relativity pristine lake, something you might not expect where there is this kind of human density, but there you have it. We were told where to go by a family member, but never met Mistou. Thanks, Mistou!


November 2020

Wonderful Spot

Very welcoming, warm and accommodating host! Great spot that was perfect for our trip!


November 2020

Great spot - thanks for the hospitality!

Pulled into their driveway and had a nice spot tucked onto the side of their drive with a small patch of woods on the other side. My pup played with theirs and had a great time! Overall, a lovely place to stay the night.


September 2020

Quiet stay

Thank you mistou for a quiet overnight stay! Grateful for your generosity.


October 2019

Wonderful family

We had such a great time staying at this spot the place is beautiful and we felt very welcome.


October 2019

Very grateful for a wonderful night

We really enjoyed staying here for the weekend. Host was super friendly and accommodating, and we even met a few other family members. Highly recommend!


October 2019

Our first stop in ME

Our host was very nice and the parking was super flat. Enjoyed meeting our host's family, walking the gardens, and watching the chickens. Beautiful spot. Thanks for your hospitality!!!


September 2019

Short and Sweet

We had a quick overnight at this sweet farmette. Warmly welcomed, beautiful neighborhood, and enjoyed a nice walk by the lake.


September 2019

Boondocking stay in Auburn, ME

Great overnight stay. Enjoyed meeting our hostess and learning about some interesting travels with her children.

Was a little concerned about our 25' MH taking up some possibly needed space in their driveway, but she did not seem concerned about the matter.


September 2019

Great spot

Wonderful spot. Cool to see all the plants in her garden and the chickens she was raising. Thanks for a great stay


September 2019

Great host!

She was awesome. came out after dark to guide us in. We were pleasantly surprised to find a great safe spot in the middle of the city!


September 2019

Great location

Enjoyed our stay here and can't thank our kind hosts enough. Very interesting family, hope to see them again!


September 2019

They treat you like family!

One of the main reasons that we love boondocking it's the chance to meet wonderful new people in different parts of the country. This family takes that to a whole new level! We were immediately greeted with fresh eggs and peaches from their peach tree. We were welcomed into their homes and spent a lot of time getting to know them. My kids loved hanging out with their kids, they have a lot of animals and we're very happy to show them off. we also were given access to their private beach and use of their canoes and paddle boards. Our experience went above and beyond our expectations. This family has so many glowing reviews, and they truly deserve it!


August 2019


They were very friendly and cordial. Welcomes us even tho we arrived a little later than planned. We would definitely stay again


August 2019

Awesome hosts

We arrived later then anticipated and they were still fine with us coming and greeted us . We left early , before they were up, so as a result we could not thank them personally. However, we left a small donation under windshield wipers of car as a token! We definitely use them again. Easy in driveway also.


August 2019

Great first stay

Great location. Very quiet and peaceful. Wonderful hosts.


August 2019

Quiet and restful

Friendly and jovial hosts whose property is very private and peaceful. It started to rain hard early in the morning but I slept soundly and enjoyed the sounds of nature all around me. I was parked on level tarmac and was greeted by a very friendly dog and later visited by an equally friendly cat. There are also chickens roaming around but they idid not introduce themselves to me so I cannot attest to their friendliness.

All-in-all a great visit and I would certainly request to stay there again if I am in the area.


August 2019

Nice, comfortable stay

A most gracious and welcoming hostess, providing a comfortable and convenient location. We'd definitely recommend it.


July 2019

Peaceful Retreat

What a great find. Had a relaxing break after crazy traveling. We were even offered fresh eggs from the chicken coop. Nice family would love to stop by again.


July 2019

Best experience ever

So, first this location is AMAZING! So quiet and private with still being close enough to the city area. And on top of location this family is so beyond sweet! My kiddos loved meeting the kids and their reptiles, as well as checking out their beach! We couldn't be more grateful for this experience! Thank you all!


October 2018

Wonderful Friendly Spot!

We loved our stay with Mistou! I believe they have two spots but there was a boat parked in the other so they generously offered that we park in their driveway. The spot was flat and level and backed up to their chicken run. It was a great location secreted away in a little neighborhood. We would love to visit again!


October 2018

Great Host

Mistou treated me like a friend, laughing at my jokes and listening to my stories. She even showed me her favorite walking path around a beautiful fall colored lake the day I was there. She also is a former boondocker and understands your needs. Thanks for a great time.

A Quiet Retreat

Great location, great reception, and wonderful site. Wish we could have stayed longer.


September 2018


Our second stay here for the weekend was great. Nice spot to stay and be local and away from the tourist shops.


August 2018

Quick and Easy!!!

Although host wasn't around for our stay she gave us directions on how to find the place and options to where we could park if we wanted to plug in.... Property was in a quiet residential area with close access to the beach and boat landing...Very nice and convenient to the Lewiston/Auburn area!!


August 2018

Beautiful Private Lake

We asked for a recommendation for a dinner restaurant and received perfect advice. My mussels were excellent!

The private pond was beautiful and very close by. We stayed in the driveway because their usual site was not available. It was easy to get into and out of with our 40’ rig. A very friendly family!

Lewiston has some beautiful downtown scenery and easy walking trails. Be sure to see the waterfalls in the middle of town.


August 2018

Tranquil location.

Level, quiet, private and tranquil place. With electric and water on site. Lake swimming a short walk away. We would definately stay again if in the area.


August 2018

Privacy & comfort for quick stop

We had a quick overnight stop at Mistou and it was great! They provided a private lot with water and electric hookups across from their home and the lake. We only met our host briefly but she was very friendly, responsive to communications, & accommodating. Highly recommend!

Great stop on the way

We enjoyed staying here as the hosts were very friendly and even had some family a similar age to our daughter so she could have some time with her instead of just adults. Very quiet neighborhood and easy to get in and out. They even gifted us with some delicious eggs fresh from their chickens!


July 2018

Very welcoming family!

Thanks again for letting us spend the night on our way to visit our grandchildren! Your family were very welcoming and helpful. Much appreciated!


July 2018

Short and Sweet

Visiting friends and family in the area and this was just a quick and convenient overnight stopover so as to not have to do any night driving...Although host was not around on our visit she had given us good directions to her home and where we could park on the property. Access to both power and water were made available. A well appreciated rest stop in s very nice neighborhood in quiet setting..Thanks M.!!!


July 2018

Best Spot!

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. We probably trimmed a few trees on our way up the road but no damage. We enjoyed the beach and the water was warm. The family was super welcoming and allowed the kids to be kids. We spend a lot of time talking about all the travels we both have done as families. It was great! Be back in a month.


March 2018

Warm and generous host

We ended up having an extended stay with Mistou as a winter storm stopped us in our tracks heading south. Their warmth was genuine, sincere - and much appreciated. We only met part of the gang but hope perhaps to meet everyone next time around. We highly recommend this host.


October 2017

Lovely spot surrounded by wonderful people!

We had an incredible stay here! It is an absolutely beautiful place and we couldn't have had better, more generous or kinder hosts. My kids loved the freedom to run around and play at the beach. It's not often you meet people you feel are now friends after two days, but we do with them!


October 2017

Postcard perfect

The whole concept of boondockerswelcome is amazing, however; this host brings it to whole new level. Not only did they provide a spot of land for a few nights for us, but they opened their home, and their lives to us. We ate a lobster dinner with them, our kids played with their kids, and we went fishing and swimming at the lake. If you have the opportunity to stay here, the location is from a postcard, and is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing a piece of your heaven with us Mistou!


August 2017

What a great place

This very friendly RVer provided us a great spot by the garden ( their mistake :-)

It got dark around the time we got camp setup but hope to see the very nearby lake in the morning.

My 37' 5th wheel was on the edge of too big so you might have to take your time getting in but hey, it's worth it!

Very friendly, very nice children making happy noise, the free range dogs were out of town ;-)

A big thanks!!

Beautiful gracious perfect

We loved our time in Maine mostly because of the amazing place host lake peace and company. This was our favorite stop to date!!!


September 2016

Lovely hosts, Lovely location!

We stayed at Mistou's place for just over a week over Labor day. We were greeted by a lovely gentleman zooming around on a Segway, and were parked next to a full blooming vegetable garden for the first half of our stay.

We later moved down to the lake! How wonderful that spot was too.. watching the sunset and hearing the kids splash about. We did not require power because of our solar and there was a good water hook up there.

All the neighbours and family came to say hello, and offer their advice and helpful tips.. I'm sorry we didn't have any Whittaker's chocolate with us to share with you all!

There is a dump station just four minutes down the road - just give it a quick google.

I could rave on and on about this place :)



August 2016

Great Place To Relax

Mistou has a great spot for you to spend a day or two. There is electric (20 amp), water hook up if you need. Very nice neighborhood with access to a lake front beach and views. There may be some fresh vegetables if you get there at the right time. Mistou and family really make you feel at home.
