Summertime is busy with our small vegetable and flower garden, and cutting, splitting and stacking fire wood to carry us through the winter months.
We love everything outdoors: National, State, all Parks in general, mountains, rivers, deserts, everything about this country; RV travel, a beautiful sunrise/sunset, good food, good drink, and good people.
Our pets are part of our family.
We are Escapees and FMCA member/hosts, also Good Sam, Passport America, and Harvest Hosts Members.
We have extensively traveled independently, starting with a tent, a popup, timeshares, motorcycle trips, then in 2012 we took up RVing. We loved our 44 day swing through the S and SW in 2015 and in 2016 we met so many extraordinarily people on a Country Music tour with Fantasy Tours.
Our 117 day life changing adventure in 2017 included the Alaska Your Way Tour (62 with Fantasy Tours), round trip it took us a total of 14,000 miles. Hope to get back there soon and stay the first of July thru the end of Sept.
We are planning on many more years of RVing and being a Boondockers Welcome Host as long as we are located here.
One of us has completed a Small Engine Course. The other plans trips.
We adopted Brady, a 12 yr old Labradoodle in 2018 when friends became terminally ill. He's a lovable, playful guy.
Anywhere and everywhere far away from cities!
2014 Itasca Sunstar 27N, length 28’ 6”, 12’ 2” height, 8’ 6” width, with a quiet Onan generator, and has a solar panel. We tow a 2011 Honda CRV 4 down.
Enjoyed our short visit upon arrival. Hope to meet again so I can learn about their trip to Alaska. Sorry their stay was cut short. See you again!

Oh how we enjoyed hosting these two!
From the moment that they arrived to the moment that they departed, we felt at ease. We could have chatted for hours about our adventures and antics :-). They are just great, down-to-earth folks that felt like long-lost cousins instead of new friends! We are grateful that they do not live too far away as we know this will be a friendship that will not end with this visit!
As hosts themselves, they know how to be great communicators, and they showed the utmost respect for our property. Do not hesitate for one moment to host these two ladies and their well-behaved pup!
We enjoyed our limited time with these two women. They were great guests and are welcome anytime.
Soo happy too see Mabel 13 again- I say visitors but they are more like friends and family now. Always a pleasure to host them!! I hope you can visit again soon- we especially Raja love to have visitors!! Hopefully we can visit you some time in NH - take care until we see you again!!
Such a pleasure to meet these lovely ladies and their sweetheart of a pooch! Enjoyed getting to know them and looking forward to visiting them this summer!
We so enjoyed having Mable13 as guest at our host location. Along with being experienced boondockers, they were friendly and courteous. They invited us to join them at the fire and visit. We had great discussions about various subjects. They were happy to share many of their traveling experiences with us.
Their dog is a cutie and is very well behaved. He got along fine with our dog.
Both are obvious pet lovers and they spoiled our dog (Heidi) and cat (Leo) with attention while with them.
They were quiet and respectful during their entire 5 day stay. We couldn't ask for better visitors to come to our "Shady Rest". They asked us several times what they could do for us - in a very kind and polite way.
We hope to see them again in the future. Either here or at their host location when we travel in the future.
These gals were a lot of fun to visit with and we had a lot in common. They were fantatic campers too! Excellent driving skills - easily backed up my 300-foot driveway. I'm looking forward to seeing them again if they come through Cleveland on their journeys!
We enjoyed hosting Mable 13 for 2 nights. They were wonderful guests and we enjoyed chatting about traveling with them. It was especially fun to see a video and photos from their trip to Alaska which is on our list! Thanks so much for sharing.
They and their well behaved pup are welcome back any time, and I hope our paths cross again - maybe in New Hampshire!
Great guest, wish weather would have been more conducive to a campfire. Happy to have a place people can safely park to enjoy points of interest in the area. I hope you will stop back would love to hear about your adventures. Stay safe.
We enjoyed visiting with these guests. We have many shared interests in travel and it was nice to compare notes with them. We hope to be boondockers guests of them at some point!
This was my first experience with hosting from boondockers welcome and it was perfect as the two guests were wonderful in every way. They were well experienced in all facets of Rving.
Two caring, polite and knowledgeable women who I enjoyed having stay at my property and having conversation on many subjects.
I have two new friends and would highly recommend them for anyone who is hosting.
What a pleasure it was to host Mable13! They were so sweet, funny, warm, and friendly, and they even brought me a little present. I look forward to hosting them again and hope to stop at their place in the future.
Wonderful folks, enjoyed talking to them. Thanks for the maple syrup!! Come back anytime. Safe travels!
Joy having them stay with us. Hope to see them again soon
Lindsay and Amy were our ideal guests, sharing many commonalities and ideas. It was a pleasure to have them stay for an extended visit at the height of summer. Welcome back anytime.
We were not at home for most of their stay but what little contact we had was very positive. Very thoughtful folks who knew what they were doing. In fact we have never had a bad experience with the many boondockers we have hosted. All have been great guests, albeit different, but all have been considerate of our property and the opportunity to camp here. Would welcome any of them back.
We very much enjoyed having Mable13 staying with us. They are fun and interesting people. We look forward to seeing them again.
It was a pleasure hosting Mable13. They even came to a presentation my wife and I gave at our local library about our trips to the west coast and Yellowstone. We're looking forward to seeing them again and staying at their place some time.
We really enjoyed having these ladies and would welcome them back anytime. Hope to see them on a future trip.
These ladies came as guests and left as friends!!! We visited for hours and had a amazing time talking about anything and everything. We loved their kind and beautiful spirits!! We so highly recommend them!!
These two gals are mint! We immediately felt comfortable with them and their sweet dog too.
We shared adventures and ideas, meals and hugs too. You can't beat them as guests, they are so helpful and pitched right in with projects we had going on. Invite them to stay, you will be glad you did.
It was a pleasure to host Mable13 and their dog Chase. They were funny, generous, gracious and a delight. We enjoyed their curiosity and energy and certainly hope to host them again someday. Wonderful couple and very easy to accommodate.
It was a pleasure to share our property with these gals. Who are very willing to help out,I might add.
Their dog Chase is a perfect gentleman. They are new to RVing and looking forward to many more adventures.
Glad they could stop and spend time in central VT.
Definitely recommend them.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Mable Acres and exploring Wolfeboro and the lakes region. Our hosts were extremely generous with their time, resources, and RV knowledge. Plus they were fun to hang out with! Lots of things to do in the area - bike trail, hiking, water activities, and wildlife sightings. Thank you Mable13! We’ll definitely visit again.
We are new to Boondockers, having had our first experience last week on the way up to coastal Maine. We enjoyed our first BD experience, our time on the Maine coast, and then decided we could stretch our trip out another day if we could find a spot to stay on the way home. Checking the website, Robin found Able Acres and made contact to find out there was indeed room for us. :D We had a leisurely drive out of Maine and followed the excellent directions provided by our hosts (I may have taken a detour, but the directions were spot on).
We really enjoyed our stay at Able Acres; our hosts were awesome, making sure we had everything we needed, and were very welcoming. We enjoyed our conversations with them, and the walk through the woods on the trail they have on the property (very nice quiet wooded area, easy to access with camper). They have a great fire ring although it was way too windy to have a fire during the night we were there. I guess we'll just have to go back in the future so we can chat around the fire (if they'll have us) LOL. Thanks so much Able Acres!
From the time of booking right through to our stay had been very pleasant experience and when we had questions, the response time was amazing! Wish we had more time to spend there!
We just wanted to go somewhere for a few days . Even though so much of the weather was rainy and overcast, Mable 13 made the time easier to bear. They are very gracious with the use of their property and had suggestions on how to spend our time. We enjoyed sharing our travels with them. They were the only sunshine we had during our stay!
We can't say enough about how AMAZING our hosts were. They went "over the top" to make us feel welcomed. They gave us many suggestions on what to see in the area. Very accommodating and now new friends. Looking forward to staying at their very peaceful, beautiful place again.
We are always grateful for a stay at Mable13's place! It was a quiet and peaceful getaway-- just what the doctor ordered. We feel lucky to know such fantastic hosts like these two.
great stay with wonderful people.....very personable and accommodating folks in a great location
What a great place. L&A really know how to make you feel at home. Thank you so much for giving us so much information to help us to be better Host. They really care and it shows. They greeted us with umbrellas to help us get settled in. We highly recommend everyone experience the friendly and relaxing place called Able Acres
Beautiful spot, with equally beautiful people hosting. Very friendly, helpful, accommodating. We can't wait for a chance to go back!
The host were very friendly. Space was easy to maneuver. Would definitely stay again
These ladies are fantastic. We felt right at home from the time of our arrival and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The poor weather did not dampen our joy or zest for exploration. Thank you for being awesome!!!
We really enjoyed our second visit to Able Acres. The hosts are gracious and their property is amazing. We look forward to many future visits.
Able Acres was a beautiful place to stay. The hosts are incredible. They greet you when you arrive and make you feel like family right away. Such warm loving kind people. They are both so full of information I started writing notes.... as this was our first week using our Travato so we were completely newbies. They could not have been more helpful. The property is beautiful with 13 acres of land surrounding you....so peaceful. There is a beautiful firepit that was all set up and ready to use.... we all sat around the fire and chatted and made new friends. Will definitely go back.
Able Acres is a beautiful spot and the owners are so nice and so much fun, we didn't want to leave. I think we will plan a trip back to the area next year just so we can stay with them again! They are extremely knowledgeable about the area and can give you the best information of what to see and do all over their state and surrounding states. I can't imagine any place better than this!
Very welcoming and hospitable. Quiet and peaceful location in the country.
Lindsay and Amy’s wooded acreage is gorgeous, and they couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful. I’ll definitely be back!
We just came home from our very first BW AND RV experience. "We're hooked!", is an understatement. Our stay at Able Acres was best! They responded quickly to our request to stay-and there the adventure began. Upon our arrival we were greeted in the driveway with warm smiles and genuine friendship. Being new to RVing, there was so much we didn't know. They stayed with during set up, offering support, blocks and friendship. The week was perfect even though the weather was not. Some nights the temps dipped to 29 degrees but our spirits never dampened, due in large part, to the blossoming friendship. We cannot express our deeply grateful we are that our paths have crossed and look forward to seeing our new friends again!
Again I had another amazing stay! I don’t remember how many times I have stayed, but each time is as special as the last. The attention to the guest and their needs are first and foremost. I had a headlight out (did not know until host pointed it out) and they immediately removed old bulb and went to auto parts store, bought a new one and installed it for me. Wow, I am sure impressed and thankful for the help. Can’t wait to stop by on my way south in the fall.
The entire time at Mable Acres was a joy. It was our first BW and the bar was set immensely high. Our hosts not only provided us with a generous amount of room on their beautiful wooded property, but made a point to get to know us and introduce themselves. In a post covid world, it's difficult to meet like-minded people and simply Converse in a safe open air, socially distanced environment. Not the case here. We spent one evening, distanced around the fire, sharing travel stories, and laughing among new friends. Our host also provided us with numerous references, books, and folders of sights, restaurants and hikes in the area. During our stay, a wheel bearing went out on our travel trailer and our hosts were quick to assist any way they could, by providing us with jack stands and telling us which parts store was the best. We'll certainly be back, this was such an incredible stay with new friends.
Another peaceful night in a beautiful spot with such great people! The path was even cleared of leaves (briefly!) so I wouldn’t get lost in the woods!
Thank you! Until we meet again.....
I had issues with my truck not long after I left this beautiful home, and they were so gracious to let me come back to stay another day and night while did some minor repairs to the truck. I feel like we will be long time friends. I was made to feel so comfortable and they offered to help in any way they could. Can’t wait to hopefully see them on a return trip in the future.
Thank you wonderful ladies for my stay, you are so nice and inviting. Love my visit!
Another great visit! The leaves were beautiful, the shared meal around the campfire perfect and the walks delightful! Thank you so much!
We had a short but very lovely and comfortable stay at Able Acres. Their place is beautiful and peaceful. Our hosts were so friendly, generous, and accommodating. We would have loved spending more time getting to know them but with Covid and our schedules it just wasn’t possible. We look forward to meeting up with them again when this world of ours returns to normal and we can spend some quality time together.
Thank you ladies! We are so happy to have met you!
I had a great time staying with these kindred spirits. We would have happily visiting for hours if not for Covid and social distancing. These two women have had many adventures and know how to follow their Bliss. I am looking forward to visiting them again and enjoying their companionship. Their property is peaceful and they were very gracious hostesses. Will definitely be back there when the weather is milder and I know we will have a wonderful time. With gratitude to both.
We couldn’t have asked for a better first Boondockers Welcome Stay and wish we had planned to stay longer. The property is gorgeous with a walking path and fire pit area and the hosts provided us with great recommendations of things to do in the area. We would definitely stay again next time we are in the area!
We had an amazing stay at Able Acres. The hosts were incredible and thoughtful. They provided us with lots of information and ideas about what to do in the area. They were conscientious of the fact that we are traveling with our young daughter and always checked to see if she was napping prior to doing any loud yard work, which was greatly appreciated (and unexpected). We will definitely stay with them again when we pass back through this area.
The host are so easy going and helpful! Great large level area to park and fire pit to use. You will want to stay longer and definitely come back.
Very friendly and welcoming! Always available to guide and provide tips you as you explore the area. Great fire pit too!
Stayed at this location with my husband and dog Elvira. Easy to find, well laid out and just beautiful! They have a lovely home, their private trails are cool and the area is beautiful as well. They are both so hospitable, we feel we made new friends!
We would love to return some time and hope they come visit us as well. This really is what Welcome Boondockers is all about. Thank you!!!!
We can't say enough good things about our hosts! We stayed our original two days and then realized our next stop wasn't going to pan out. We were so totally blown away by their kindness and hospitality when they let us book another two nights to get us to our next stop. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them, listening to all their travels across the country, and picking up some great tips too. If you ever get a chance to stay with them, do it! You won't be sorry. I'll say it again, we came as Strangers and Left as Friends!
There was so much to do in this area that we extended our stay. Thanks for having us!
This place is gorgeous! Peaceful and quiet but close to Wolfboro Meridith, Laconia, Weir's Beach, and few hours from Portland. Hosts are everything you'd hope them to be and more. So hospitable and friendly, giving us ideas for sightseeing and things to do, and wonderful chats sharing stories. I'd come back here in a heartbeat! Hope to see you soon!
These girls are top notch and provided us with so much information to make our stay perfect. We would love to come back and see them again soon.
Let me start by saying that this was our first experience with a travel trailer. That said, our hosts were incredibly helpful. They imparted many valuable tips and tricks that will make future boon-docking adventures a breeze.
Able Acres is so peaceful and relaxing. We so enjoyed our visits at the fire pit getting to know our hosts. There is plenty to do in the area and the host has a binder of local attractions to help you decide. We took advantage of the rails-to-trails that are only a few minutes away and spend an afternoon downtown by the lake. We will definitely be going back to visit our new friends.
We know. You're ready to read the 57th consecutive rave review of a BW host. Lists of adjectives.
Not going there. Able Acres is a hospitality shrine.
And they're not even trying.
A & L seem perfectly natural at providing the best experience they possibly can. Our style is to ride our bikes all day. No real plan. They (L) have a comprehensive folder of information to make you aware of local points of interest. But.....they were judiciously hands off with us. We're suspect they would have loaded us in their car and taken us anywhere. Truly. As it was, we had a few really nice sit-down conversations. Not enough, though.
(A) took one of us swimming at a pristine local beach, after dinner. Then made us banana bread with fresh picked blueberries the next morning.
You've read the raves from the other lucky guests. Every bit of it, true.
Bottom line; there is no way we're not staying connected.
Wonderful folks and an awesome place to stay. We will have to go back for another stay to spend more time visiting with Able and seeing more of the area.
Amy and Lindsay were awesome hosts throughout our 2 night stay. We are new to RVing and this was our first BW stay. They went out of their way to answer our myriad of questions as we sat by the fire pit enjoying Lindsay's home made popcorn.
We would recommend staying with them when in the Lakes Region, you won't be disappointed!
Thank you again Amy and Lindsay!
We loved our stay at AbleAcres. Such a welcoming, helpful, friendly and entertaining couple! Being new to the RV world, we learned so much from these experienced RV voyagers about many aspects of life on the road. Please come see us on Cape Cod soon! MarcyBen
We had such a good time with our hosts, who could not have been more welcoming and hospitable. As newbie Roadtrekers, we appreciated getting so many great RVing tips and important help (as in, how to deal with our dead battery!!!), as well as extension of our stay due to rain, rain, rain. This area of NH is magnificent. We particularly enjoyed the local rails to trails for biking. We will back!!! Thanks! Marcy and Ben
This is what Boondockers Welcome is all about! Our stay at Mable13's place was beyond hospitable. Our hosts offered us plenty of local knowledge about places to visit and the going-ons of the area. We enjoyed the fire pit, friendly conversation, and their sweet dog as well as all of our adventure around the area. Thanks for the banana bread! We will definitely be back.
Loved the beautiful location, and host could not have been nicer or more accommodating! Great conversations on subjects that we are both passionate about! I had such a great peaceful sleep in this quite mountain home. Hope to get back next year and if they are not out traveling, I would love to spend some time exploring the area. Lots to see and do, especially if you like the outdoors. Parking site was level and easy to just drive thru. A perfect Boondocker’s stay!
Great overnight stop!!! We enjoyed visiting at length with our hosts. AND they were wonderfully helpful with (1) travel tips for interesting sites in Maine and (2) help with a challenging change of a headlight lamp. Great company and great location!
What a lovely place to stay. I was backed in so that my front window faced the forest. 30 amp and water. It felt like I was all by myself in the woods. My hosts were amazing. My dogs had the use of their spacious fenced back yard and I could sit on their lovely screened back porch to watch the sunset when it wasn't raining. They helped me suggestions of places to go sightseeing, restaurants, and even found an RV repairman for me when my fridge quit chilling. Very friendly folks who greeted me with a smile and cheery " good morning!" every day.
We stayed 3 nights with these folks. The weather wasn’t great during our stay, but everything else was perfect! The site is gorgeous, and they offered 30 amp electric and water. Nearby Wolfeboro and Lake Winnipesaukee were lots of fun, in spite of the weather. The best part, though, was the hospitality, advice, and companionship of the hosts! They are very interesting people who have a lot of travel and activity experience, and they gave us so much useful information! We really enjoyed our stay and hope to visit with them again sometime. We highly recommend this location!
They both treated us so nice. They gave us good advice on where to go in the area and even took us to a local swimming hangout when we got there. They.nicely helped us position our rig for
optimum view and gave us good advice for future rig use. Lots of room to move around plus a nice walking path for the dog. Good conversation and good people.
Wow, what can I say, Lindsay and Amy are the best!! I showed up with my rig and a 20ft car trailer which we had to break apart to get me turned around, but using their pick up it was a breeze. Great location, nice flat parking, super quiet at night, and the warmest friendliest hosts you can imagine. My first experience with Boondockers Welcome was a home run for sure!!
We were supposed to stay with Mable13 for three days, but we just had to stay for four and had the absolute best time! The hosts are so welcoming and gracious and make you feel right at home. Luckily for us, they had some extra time so we got a wonderful tour of the area. This is a fantastic location, BEAUTIFUL site and wonderful town. We became fast friends and feel like we've known them forever. We plan to stay in touch and hopefully be back in the area to stay again. We can't recommend them enough!!! You won't be disappointed, unless you aren't able to make it to this fantastic location.
We stayed with Mable13 for several days, and the location was the best! This was our first time at a Boondockers Welcome site and we were totally impressed. They had many suggestions about local sites. Activities included an afternoon floating in a nearby lake, a day driving around the countryside taking in all the beautiful views, covered bridges, downtown, and history of the area. There is a short walking trail on the beautiful property, and the evening sky is full of stars – you can even watch the fire-flies. We know we will visit see these two again and hopefully in the not too distant future. Thank you for such a perfect camping spot with fire-pit and rock seating. Even our dogs had a great time! Thanks again.
We spend a very quiet night. Very friendly people.
They made available all commodities and take time for us.
Thanks a lot for all.
Hope to see you next time.
We were very pleased with the site when we arrived. It was level, and a very scenic location. The hosts were very accomodating and have created a wonderful location to share with others who travel.
We hope to visit again in the future!
We stayed with Mable13 for a few days, they were our first hosts and were spectacular. So willing to share knowledge and help accommodate us and our rig. We hope to see them again in our journeys! They set a high bar for our future boondockers welcome friends!
We enjoyed our visit so much we had to return again! Another campfire with good conversation, and our hosts even arranged to have the smoke go away from us! More walks, another free outdoor concert in town, fresh veggies....I love this place, and the hosts! Thank you for making us feel so welcome! We look forward to when we meet again.
My husband and I had such a great visit with these folks that we couldn’t stay away! We returned for another great visit, including campfires, great conversation, and even fresh veggies from their garden. This home is one of our top recommendations. Thank you so much!
We stayed with these gals for several days, and the location and company was the best! We shared conversation over a campfire each evening, followed up on many suggestions about local sites, went blueberry picking together, and will probably do a canoe paddle together in a nearby lake before we leave. There is a short walking trail on the beautiful property, and the evening sky is full of stars since there are no city lights (or noises) close by. We did hear coyotes several times, and the red fox we saw was beautiful. And then there was the banana bread......! We hope to see these two again in our travels, as we enjoyed them so much! Thank you for such a perfect parking spot, complete with electricity and wifi, and most of all, friendship.
