Very Friendly Couple

It was very easy to host this couple and they were very friendly and wanted to get to know our family. Hopefully we'll see them in their neck of the woods some day!

Wonderful couple!

We wholeheartedly recommend this couple as guests. They stayed only one night but the pleasure was ours. If you get a chance to either host this couple or be guests at their place your world will be richer! We wish them well on their journey and welcome them back anytime they travel our direction. Safe journeys.

Great stop while traveling.

This was our second overnight stay with these hosts, they were very friendly, and offer a great stop on the way south.

Thank you!

Great Place that saved our bacon!

We needed a place to stop for the night on our way to Idaho coming from Mount Rainier. What we didn’t predict was the weather turning so hot, so their electricity was as highly valued as the water and wifi that was also so useful – Many Thanks Guys! Plenty of room on flat tarmac in nice rural countryside setting; just a short steep gravel driveway to deal with when leaving (no problem for us). Good communication with Jim throughout. We wish we could have stayed longer, but the hot weather forced us to move along to our next, cooler destination!

Our first Boondockers Welcome experience.

We had a great stay, and a nice visit with Jim & Wendy.

Like Coming Home

It was like coming to visit favorite relatives. I felt like I had known them as good friends forever. Helped me immediately with making sure I took the easiest route to the location, upon arrival came out and helped me set up and meet Jack and Rhys my two dogs. It was a great stop. I had a wonderful time chatting and before I knew it so much time had passed and we laughed and just enjoyed stories. I would come again. In fact I would feel guilty not stopping! I can’t thank them enough for their hospitality.

Beautiful View. Charming Hosts

Lovely couple. Very helpful directing us in. Loved chatting in the evening. Beautiful views. Great area to walk our dogs just up the road. I hope we keep in touch!

Nice couple & rural setting

I was late coming in, about 8:15pm, but James Swanson welcomed me & my dogs to visit before setting up for the night. We had a nice visit & good nights rest. Wonderful warm couple & nice quiet place to overnight. I will definitely us them again on my travels to Washington, you should too.

Lovely couple and location

We spent a night with these guys and enjoyed the short visit very much. Although they are both working folk, they made time to chat with us, it was great hearing the stories about their travels and told a few stories myself (some of which were even true) well almost true.
Thanks very much and safe travels guys!
