Late 50s couple who travel when we can. We have been RVing for a few years. We are waiting on Phil to fully retire a second time so we can travel more. He has an extensive bucket list and can't wait to start checking it off.
Jack of all, but master of none. Handy with a wrench and have friends who are VERY handy with everything needed to keep an RV on the road. I am also a budding chef so if you show up on the right night you may get a great meal.
Extremely friendly chocolate lab mix but she doesn't travel with us.
She is a beach bum and I am a mountain man. We both love unique quirky locations.

This couple was so quiet that I hardly knew they were here. I look forward to hosting them again in the future and getting to know them better. You can't go wrong hosting this couple.
We had such a delightful visit with these folks!
They stayed four nights. So glad they stopped
here on their New England tour.
Looking forward to spending time with them again!
What a wonderful, peaceful Boondocking experience! ! Phil was an awesome host. This was our first boondocking experience and it could not have been better. Phil provided us with a beautiful site on the side of his most spacious driveway. We were so excited to be able to see great sun rises and sun sets...We were also treated to sightings of Bared Owls that come by every evening. Our first evening we got to know Phil and his delightful son, Sam...we felt like old friends by the end of the evening. Phil's beautiful lab and our dog Clancy had a great time romping around...on the Cooper's lovely, private property.
We also met several of Phil's neighbors...everyone was very friendly and helpful. We missed Mrs. Cooper as she was visiting her daughter in law and grand-daughter. Phil made sure we had electric and water and that was an extra bonus. All we can say is if you want to meet some great people and also need a great Boondocking site ..then Country Living with the Coopers must be on your list. Thank you so much!

Everything was as stated. Lovely quiet location on dirt road with very little slow traffic.Host was very accommodating. Level spot with 30amp hook up. Easy to turn around spot. Would have no hesitation of going back. Had some good conversation with host. Very friendly.
Host was very helpful finding a part I needed for my RV.
Having a home base to explore the NC countryside was what I needed and got it with this host.
Interesting talks, hope to return.
We ended up asking Phil and his wife if we could stay here on a very short notice and they graciously accepted our request within hours. We had to evacuate our campsite due to a hurricane so it meant A LOT to us to be able to have a safe place to stay at “Country Living.” Phil is a darling of a host and he went out of his way to help us get settled in when we arrived. P.s the drive in is really pretty and serene. I highly recommend having a stay here! Thank you SO MUCH! You guys were a blessing.
I stayed here for two nights this week and it was a fantastic experience! They made me feel right at home and made sure I had a great stay. Although it was my first time Boondocking, I am sure you won't come across hosts this great any time soon. I truly hope I get the opportunity in the future to come back to NC or to welcome you in Canada/Holland. Thank you so much, could not have asked for a better place or hosts!
Generous welcoming hosts. More than accommodating. They made us feel at home and we enjoyed sharing travel stories together.
Love these two! Wish I could have stayed longer this time but had to hit the road. Always clear communication, great area to stay. Of course my pups never wanted to leave!
This was my first time using Boondocker‘s it was a wonderful experience and location very quiet
my host was very friendly
not only did he give me a place to stay but he allowed me to use his camper which was air-conditioned on a very humid night
I have can only make positive comments about this gentleman
I highly recommend this location which he is expanding to receive more visitors His Conversation and company was very much appreciated being new to the area as a traveler from New York and it was good to meet another American who has( still is) served his country and is an assets to this community sorry for the slow response been on the road etc
The hospitable "Country Living" duo are a simply a barrel of fun and as thoughtful as can be. And their Lab is a sweetie!
The access is easy, surroundings beautiful, and groceries/supplies are less than five minutes away. We hope to have the pleasure of hosting them in return one day!
Thanks for hosting us, y'all!
How much fun can one person have?! As soon as I pulled up I was guided to a level parking spot. But wait..I was contacted before I even was on my way checking what I needed!
Fun, fun people, great coffee and company! Phil shared his experience with training his dog, helped me so much with my two dogs. They had such a blast running, exploring and visiting their dog Emma
Thanks you two, love to visit again on our way back!
