I threw out my back just as he arrived. I never actually met him but he followed directions to a tee and left the site spotless. He's certainly welcome back anytime

Nice quiet stopover

Great centrally located stop to visit Rhode Island. Easy to find and a perfect level spot.
Jtagen provided 15 amp electric and water. Quiet nights.

Newport and really all of Rhode Island is a short drive.

Jtagen has a great personality and we had a interesting conversation.

Highly recommend this Host and location and will request again when in the area.

Great family quiet spot for a quick stay

This family was very sweet and we enjoyed visiting with them. Our dogs loved the extra attention and our toddler enjoyed running around the backyard.
They were very hospitable and had good tips for local yummy food.
The spot was a perfect fit for our 39 foot rig and slides.

Great Overnight In The Ocean State

Quiet Level Park Like Setting. Interesting evening of lively conversation. Hope this family visits us in Tennessee in the future. Don't miss Allie's Donuts which is close by. Arrive early because when they are gone they are gone!

Rhode Island

We found out that we love Rhode Island. So much to see, and do. Great host who knows everything there is to know about Rhode Island. He pointed us in all the right directions. He let us stay an extra day because we got rained out. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. We appreciate the local insight and the hospitality we received. We would love to come back again, and hopefully get to clamming next time! Thanks again!

Great Stay!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with jtagen and his family. The are all very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed hanging out, and our pups loved the attention from the kids. The parking spot was level, clean, and easy to access. the location is great for exploring the area. We really enjoyed catching the ferry to Block Island for the day. The port is only 30 mins away. Thanks for a great stay! :)

Wonderful and relaxing

Maggie and I enjoyed our time tremendously. The family was so helpful and welcoming, especially considering they had just moved several weeks earlier! The weather was beastly hot so we very much appreciated the electric and wifi! A perfect location for exploring Rhode Island and it’s wonderful beaches. Quiet and great for sleeping! Maggie enjoyed the large backyard and attention from all the kids! Definitely would come back!

Very kind, open and welcoming people, great place to stay!

We loved our stay at jtagen, spent two days there that we will not easily forget. The owners were very helpful with different things, offered suggestions and invited us to go with them to the beach. Thanks guys, you made the last two days of renting our RV memorable, we'll be talking about this for some time! It was very nice meeting your family, thank you for your welcoming spirit.
