Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I enjoy meeting new people and enjoy being a part of a network of hosts and travelers on this site. I have hosted a few of folks and would enjoy hosting more. I have been able to take some time this summer 2018 and boondock in Maine. It has been fun!
For some reason I have missed a couple of emails from people wishing to boondock...don't give up ...try again if you don't hear from me. Perhaps the emails are getting waylaid in the junk mail?

Skills & Expertise to Share

I Love to garden and welcome you to partake of the fresh veggies I grown when in season. But this year I have not put a lot of time and effort into it...so there is mainely an abundance of chard and zucchini!

Saco River's Pets

I do not travel with pets but have cats, goats, lambs, ducks, chickens and a visiting dog named daisy occasionally

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I love to be close enough to water so I can hear it! Rural areas are my favorite

Saco River's Hometown

It is 30 min from Portland, the ocean, the mountains and ski areas. A short driveway and close to the river

Saco River's Rig

Rig Type: Class A

16 feet long

I have converted a 2005 Ford E1 50 van into a self-contained travel vehicle.I had it painted a deep forest green and they put in two fantastic fans. I have an outside plug in for electric, a solar generator, tiny woodstove and a self-contained toilet. I have a little sink, cookstove and table. It is simple and comfortable, easy to drive and doesn't take up very much space.

Wonderful visit

Our great host was so accommodating and friendly. The river is a kayaker's dream.
We had a relaxing time among the farm animals.

Cool spot on a HOT day!

We had a wonderful visit with Saco and friends. They waited for us to get settled in and then led us to their private
swimming hole in the back yard, very refreshing on a blasted hot day. 2 fresh eggs right from the farm really made breakfast a special treat. Unfortunately time didn't allow for more conversations other than at the swimming hole but we has a great time anyway. We certainly hope to see Saco again in the future.

VERY NICE AREA & A GREAT HOSTESS?

I very much enjoyed staying at the Saco River Respite &
the hostess was very nice & helpful.
From this location I drove to Portland & visited the beautiful light house &
the grounds of the former 1800's Fort Williams.
This was very interesting & I took many beautiful pictures.
After Portland, I drove SE on the secondary roads to Kennebunkport.
I did not see the Bush's Compound but I did visit the beautiful bay.
At 5pm, I went to NUNAN's Lobster Hut & enjoyed a whole boiled
Lobster dinner. It was very delicious & NUNAN's is an older &
very popular place w picnic table seating inside.
It is much larger (deep) than it looks, but if you are not there by 5PM,
you will be waiting outside for a long wait list.
My very 1st Maine fresh whole lobster & worth every penny!
Warning: CASH ONLY! No C.C. or ATM.
Thank you, Brenda, I would return!

Great Location, Great Host

This location was easy to get to and offered 15 amp electric service. She is located on the Saco river and you can sit in her yard and enjoy the beautiful view and the sound of the water cascading over the rocks.

Will request again when in the area and recommend you do the same.

Great Stop

Saco River Respite is a nice spot. Very welcoming. A lot going on at this homestead on the river. Loved the conversation and the goats. Close to Portland.

Awesome

They were open to us coming right after my nieces wedding/ reception. The hostes was very caring and welcoming. I would go there again in my travels. And if I had a way to host I would in a heartbeat. Thank you all so very much. Best nights sleep in a long time.

Warm, welcoming, casual, and funky

I loved my stay. Altho the description is very understated, the place is so much fun with an old school hippyish feel. Easy to find among winding rural roads, it feels like a country homestead, backing up to a lovely river surrounded by trees. I parked in a level spot in front of the barn that sits right beside the house. It has been converted to a studio space where there are all kinds of art projects are happening. There are goats and ducks in pens right near the house and a trail down to the river. I was welcomed, offered food, and spent the evening talking and laughing over a hot cup of tea. It felt like I was visiting long lost friends. I give Saco River a maximum thumbs up.

Great place, wonderful host

One of the nicest places to stay. Thank you, B., for your wonderful berry-and-rhubarb-cake! The pitch is quiet and the area is really impressive. No doubt, if we will ever be within 100 miles and looking for a host, we know whom to call!
