We love to camp in our RV and through the years have gone from tenting to pop-ups to trailers and now own a small motorhome. We enjoy a vagabond type of journey these days, pointing ourselves in a general direction and seeing what the world offers around the next corner. When home, we are active gardeners and carpenters, and active volunteers in our community and church family. We love meeting new folks and sharing experiences.
We have many "jack of all trades" skills from mechanics to carpentry, plumbing, gardening, and general household nice-things-to-know. We're pretty self sufficient and hope to remain that way for many years to come.
We are just beginning to explore boondocking though we have used Cabela's, Camping World and truck stops with RV spots with success.
We have a 2016 25-foot Class C in order to accommodate our "back road" type of travel and to allow easy access and parking in out of the way places. We've taken our little guy on highways, byways, local and back roads and even dirt logging roads with total success. It has allowed us to be more spontaneous in our travels. It has a 30" slideout. We do also now tow a small Chevy Sonic.
This Fantastic couple was our Second Host that we were able to host. From the minute they pulled into our driveway we felt an instant connection! All of our Hosting experiences have been great ! Yet we have to admit that we really hit it off with some of our guests more than others.(No disrespect to anyone else reading this) Boondockers Welcome is a fantastic organization and for it to bring unfound friends together is just plain super. Any hosts reading this please don't hesitate to have this couple as guests! They are great people and New found Friends. Safe travels and good health until we see you again!💖
These guys were a breath of fresh air … We had a few similar interests and it was a pleasure to host them … I would not hesitate to host them again … Happy Travels …
Ron was a great guest. He is welcome back anytime. We spent a few hours chatting and talking about our various adventures. We would recommend them to anyone.
We had such a great time and appreciate so much KaRoNC letting us stay. They were such great hosts and made us feel welcome with friendly faces and great conversations. They offered water and electric and the use of their beautiful back yard. Great location near Lake Norman and the surrounding areas. Lots to do in this area. Thanks again KaRoNC!!
The host couple is very welcoming and helpful. R researched local tire repair shops and we had some good conversations about the world's greatest canoe club (US Navy). I made a visit to the Graham Library and it was most interesting.
When we arrived our host met us at the driveway and gave us directions regarding parking, and connections to electricity and water. K & R were very helpful and gracious host, even offering the use of their patio, with lots of information and great conversation. If ever around the area be sure to stop in.
We had a great stay at this location. It’s exactly as described. Beautiful neighborhood quiet and relaxing. The hosts are fabulous people that go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We hope to return someday.￼
Guest RV parking is in their fenced and gated backyard beside the beautiful patio & garden. Wonderful couple, nice secure area with lots of shade. This was our first and most perfect Boondockers welcome experience.
This place was exactly what the doctor ordered. KaRoNC were incredibly kind and welcoming, it felt like coming home! The property was beautiful and quiet and we got the best night sleep we’ve had in a week. Not to mention, the 3 dogs got to stretch their legs and make 2 new wonderful friends. Will come back by here if we ever need a stop in NC!
Our hosts were very friendly, welcoming, & gracious. Gardening tips & tricks were much appreciated...can’t wait to use some of those tips in our garden. The location is absolutely beautiful which made our walks quite enjoyable. Wish we had more time to spend with our hosts. We will definitely be visiting them again.
KaRoNC was an excellent stay! Hosts were like family. Enjoyed the talks on the patio and appreciate the gardening and RV advice! My pup loved the yard and didn't want to leave. Beautiful, quiet location. Would highly recommend.
I had a wonderful visit, their backyard was nice and shady and well kept. It was a very comfortable few days that i was able to spend here! They were very accomodating and even lent me an extension cord to plug in. Couldnt have asked for a better first experience!
We soooo enjoyed our overnight stay at KaRoNC's Quiet Corner! K and R were both so inviting and hospitable! They provided power and WiFi for our stay. Their yard is beautiful and so quiet. I actually overslept this morning because I was THAT relaxed! Awakened by the noise of my own phone ringing, the only other sounds were those of birds in the trees. We were given access as their guests to the private beach on the lake and it was relaxing as well as beautiful.
Although our stay was short, were enjoyed chatting with them both when we arrived and before we left. If our future travels bring us through this area again, we would love to stay again for this 5 star experience!
Easy back in driveway for me at least but not everyone, enjoyed chat and garden ideas, would not hesitate to stay here again these are wonderful people
This was a very nice mid-way point for our trip to Florida.
The hosts are very accommodating and friendly.
Quiet neighborhood. We had a great stay both times.
We had a pleasant night stay. The welcoming fireworks were a special treat.
Hosts are very accommodating and friendly. We would stay here again.
KaRoNC is a lovely Boondocker spot. We were visiting family in the area ahs needed a spot for several nights. Our hosts were most welcoming and helpful in getting set up. The backyard was like being in a park, secluded and quiet. Very generous couple. Hope to visit next time we are in the area.
KaRoNC are SuperHosts. They were very welcoming and respected our low contact visit during the Pandemic. We thoroughly enjoyed being their backyard neighbors, the flowers, their garden and even having our own mailbox with welcome packet on nearby things. They even shared Bok Choy and garlic out of there garden which we cooked in our dinner. Highly recommend!
We had a great conversation! Beautiful level spot with a garden view, electric and water! Can't ask for much better.
KaRoNC were awesome hosts helping us feel very welcome. We were invited to use their 30 amp electric and enjoy the back yard. We had delightful conversation under their pergola and would enjoy returning to their home.
We enjoyed a great (albeit short) stay with KaRoNC. They promptly responded to all of our communications and greeted us upon arrival. Their property is beautiful and we appreciated the electric hookup and use of the WiFi! We took a quick stroll down to the lake, which is also beautiful. We arrived just before dark and only chatted for a few minutes, but in the little time we spent with them we could tell they are genuinely nice people! We hit the road early the next morning to continue our journey.
The parking area was a bit steep (which we were warned about) and we were concerned about damaging the fridge so we placed a few LEGO blocks under the front tires. We’re relatively newbies, so maybe it wasn’t necessary (but we’d rather be safe than sorry)!
Karen was very responsive to our emails. Enjoyed the electric hook up and WiFi that they had set up for guests.
Beautiful grounds, enjoyed a good night sleep.
We had a wonderful time with Ron and Karen. Great place to “camp”! We seemed to have common interest which is a plus.
We'll never forget our stay here. Our hosts went far over and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. We could use their yard as much as we wanted and our kids loved it as much as we did. They even helped us prepare our rig to continue our journey.
We felt like we found a new family there.
Really hope to see them again.
After staying here last November we where happy to be able to return here for a quick overnighter on our way back to Canada.
Had a restful night on their property and enjoyed the conversation.
Hopefully you will get the chance to visit Nova Scotia sometimes this year
The "KaRoNC's" were so very welcoming and helpful and their property is beautiful. It was a very comfortable stay that I enjoyed so very much. Thank you both again!
We really enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend it.
We had a lovely and quiet overnight stay at this place
KaRoNC welcomed us, we had a nice conversation and hopefully helped them with their travel plans to Nova Scotia
Would definitely stay again when in the area
Perfect overnight stay with these two lovely hosts! Our dogs loved the huge fenced in yard! Beautiful neighborhood across from the lake. Very quiet. Electric and wifi!!! Our hosts helped us get the right tire pressure, the tires were very low. Wonderful experience! Our first time staying with BW.
Karen and Ron were wonderful hosts and even extended our stay for a full week so we could stay for the NASCAR races in Charlotte. They welcomed us with open arms, and loads of information about the area. We came as strangers and left with new friends.
The host here were absolutely amazing. This was my first staying with a host from boondockers welcome and I could not be more pleased with my experience. As I pulled up I was met with smiles and helped with backing in to their beautiful backyard. As I set everything up the conversation was excellent and the host provided a 30 amp extension cord as mine wasn't quite long enough to reach the outlet. I didn't see much more of them after I settled in as I was in town for work, but the time I did have with them was wonderful. I hope to have the opportunity to stay with them again in the future!
Karen and Ron were wonderful Boondocker hosts and went out of their way to accommodate us. We now have two new RV friends and look forward to seeing them again in our travels.
Melanie and I spent a delightful few days with Karen and Ron. To say we are fortunate to have been welcomed at their wonderful home is an understatement. In addition to their generosity in providing us with a 30 amp hook up and water, and a beautiful backyard garden area in which to lounge, they are the most charming and best hosts a traveler could imagine. We are pleased to now call them our friends.
Wonderfully nice couple. Lovely neighborhood location. Very quiet area with beautiful view.
What more can I say than I was extremely fortunate to have not only found such a beautiful place to stay, but to have found such a special couple and Ron and Karen. Their friendly nature was exactly what I needed after a long day's travel. Consider yourself lucky if you have a chance to stay with this wonderful couple on their lovely property.
We can't say enough positive things about our hosts or our stay here while we explored the Charlotte area. They were so friendly and accomodating, and even allowed us to use their shower as the water was turned off outside for the season. My husband and I enjoyed getting to know them during our frequent conversations, and they are some of the nicest people we have met during our travels. We look forward to stopping by next time we are in the area!
We were so fortunate to find Karen and Rons place. They are wonderful, friendly, gracious people and worked out everything we needed. Extra perk for me is she a great gardener and. It only did I learn some things from her, she gave us some things from the garden as well! They have a great spot and we highly recommend paying them a visit
Very friendly hosts, nice spot in their yard. Close to Charlotte. Would definitely stay again.
Karen and Ron could not have been nicer. Lovely people, lovely property. I hope our paths cross again.
This was our first try using Boondockers Welcome. It was our first time boondocking in a driveway. We loved it! Our hosts were incredible! First, they have a beautiful home in a fantastic location. Second, our hosts are experienced RVers, and we learned so much from them. Third, their gracious hospitality and friendly-nature made us and our old black lab feel right at home. We will travel that way or out of our way just to visit them again!
Such wonderful hosts, helped me back...I joined them for dinner, great conversation. Nice quiet area
Thank you so much
Wow, KaRonC are one of the most lovely couples I ever met. Very caring and extremely welcoming, willing to share there multitude of knowledge....I left their home a better person and I think we will be long life friends. Can't wait to see them again.
I will say I just pulled in, while pulling up I was met the gates were being opened. The backing in wasn't bad and with the host spotting it was a piece a cake. I wasn't but parked and I'm being hooked up to power. I will say the Boondockers host I have encountered is a <emoji> percent better then any campsite. Thanks for everything already. If you need a comfortable spot for a layover don't hesitate to contact these folks. I will be stopping again.
I stayed with these folks in June of 2017 for an overnight while enroute to Linville Falls in western North Carolina.I appreciated how they welcomed me and allowed Lizzie and I to stay the night at their place. I will say that anyone wishing to accept their hospitality be quite comfortable in maneuvering their rig into tight quarters.If you are, then definitely give these folks a shout if you find yourself traveling that way!
