Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Been married for over 40 years and started RVing in 2010. We have 3 adult children and 8 grandchildren so spend time traveling back and forth between the northern part of Michigan and southwest Florida. We've also enjoyed traveling east and west from the Maritime Provinces of Canada to the western shores of Washington State. We enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories and telling our own if the opportunity presents itself in a serendipitous way.

A short but nice visit.

Sometimes guests stay with us because they have something to do in the area, which is great. In this case JustAPlace2Rest had a wedding to attend. But they were here for two nights and we had a nice, long visit the second night. Very sociable and good conversation.


August 2021


Sometimes you only get to host and meet folks one time. We have had the honor to be ongoing with these folks. Good thing cause our fur babies LOVE each other. Nicer folks you will not host.. welcome them with open arms to your site.

Very pleasant couple. Had to guide their 43 foot rig into our narrow drive but managed with care.

Enjoyed good conversation and explained things about the Farm to them. Arrived right on time they planned to. Left in time to accomodate our departure next morning. Recomend this great couple to anyplace that can handle their big rig! They are welcome back anytime we are home.

Great stay. Super nice hosts!

Really enjoyed our stay here. Our hosts were personable, helpful and just all around really nice people.
We felt welcomed and really appreciated the ability to connect to power while we were there.
Of note, the location is close to a busy road, so if traffic noise bothers you, it might be something to consider.
Will for sure stop back by if we are in the area. Thanks again!!


September 2021

Good stay

Great people with fun energetic dogs.Nice easy to get to parking. Thanks for letting us stay with you.


September 2021


This was a great stop with wonderful, helpful hosts. It rained our time there so didn’t venture out, but enjoyed the spot to just nap and refuel.


August 2021

Just a place to stay was "just right"

Very kind welcoming folks letting us stay even though we're from the Buckeye State. Their location is just minutes away from a beautiful public beach on Lake Huron, the Alpena area is just beautiful. Thanks again to our great hosts. Would definitely stay again.


August 2021

Two new friends!

There was a great connection right away with our hosts. They made us feel right at home. They shared with us a lot about their local area. A very sweet couple that made sure that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Great stopping point on our journey! Hoping we can cross paths again in the future.


July 2021

Great Hosts!

We loved staying here! The hosts and dog are super friendly and welcoming. We're thrilled we had a chance to meet them. There is sporadic noise throughout the night as trucks roll by, but this was easily remedied with earplugs or CPAP :).


July 2021

Very friendly and accommodating.

It is just a place to rest and it is on the highway. I used earplugs in order to block highway noise out. Other than that, great hosts.


July 2021

Very friendly and accommodating!

Great couple. Super nice. Wanted to make sure I felt welcomed and got what I needed during my stay.


July 2021

Great host!

I'm a light sleeper, so the road noise was a little more than expected, but tolerable. The host great and greeted us at the driveway and helped with everything from water to where to get propane. The dump at the fairgrounds was $8 now. (Of course I only had a $10.😂)


July 2021

Great stay in Alpena

We had a very pleasant at Just a place to rest. This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay and it turned out great! Our hosts were very helpful in pointing out things to see and do. Alpena is a very nice small town with lots of things to see and do. We particularly enjoyed the Besser museum and the Lighthouses in the area. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you both for having us.


July 2021

Safe and easy space near a nice little town.

This was a great place to stop over. I went downtown to purchase a few items and had a very nice conversation with my host. Couldn’t be more friendly and convenient. Thanks again.


June 2021

Great stop for restocking and nature activities!

JustAPlace2Rest is exactly that. They are located on a main road and are an easy drive, a mile or so, from both a Wal-Mart and a Mejer. There is also a Culver’s and McDonald’s there too. Having spent 2 weeks in the UP, this was like modern civilization. There is some road noise during the day, but it really quiets down in the evening. I am a truly light sleeper and I slept great. There are numerous state parks in the area and several lighthouses to see. The hosts are fabulous and communicated well. Power was good and parking easy. I chose to pull straight in the drive and did a three point turn to get out. There was plenty of room for that. I even had room to hook up my toad in the driveway before I departed.


June 2021

Lovely, extremely nice and helpful couple

Thank you K and V for allowing us to stay on your property. We felt very safe and comfortable. We especially appreciated your welcoming and friendly personalities.


June 2021

Safe and great location

Hosts were very helpful - even showed me where the dog park was in town. It’s a beautiful area with lots to see.


April 2021

Quick stop.

Easy access from the road and convenient location. Very helpful and hospitable hosts.


October 2020

Great hosts, nice stay

Everything you could want in a location and easy in, easy out.

We got a great night's rest and were on our way in minutes.


September 2020

Awesome hosts!

It felt like we were right at home. They were great hosts! I love the information that I can gain with other seasoned RV’ers


July 2020


Absolutely wonderful hosts, great level and safe space, turned out to be directly next to where my appointment was so it could not have been more perfect. Many thanks to my gracious hosts!!!!!!


July 2020

Great location and great host!!!!

This stay was awesome. The location was wonderful for all that we wanted to do. We really had a great time with these hosts and enjoyed dinner together one evening. We highly recommend staying with JustAPlace2Rest if you are in the area.


June 2020

Abundance of generosity

This was the perfect place for a stop while we explored the area and while the hubby tripped down memory lane about his days in the military.

Thank you so much for the amenities and for making it a safe place to be.

Great dinner conversation.


June 2020

Friendly and helpful!

We are so thankful for such a pleasant stay so close to Lake Huron. We are new at the RV life and grateful for the pointers.


August 2019

Wonderful accommodating hosts!

I stayed for one night on my way to the UP. JustAPlace2Rest was very accommodating and quick to respond to my requests and questions.


September 2018

Such a gracious host

I requested a stay one evening when all parks were full, and the host replied within minutes and said I was welcome to park there, though he wasn't home. His trusting, welcoming spirit reminded me of the good old days when people trusted each other. A most gracious host!


September 2017

Very Gracious Couple

Stayed here in Alpena for 2 nights. Had a very warm welcome and a lot of great conversations. Alpena is a very nice city to visit on Lake Huron. Highly recommend this spot as a stop over in your travels. Thanks again for your hospitality.

Great hosts

JustAPlace2Rest and his wife are excellent hosts. We had a good time sharing in conversation with them and were given some very good suggestions about their town. Looking forward to seeing them again.
