Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Chose the Colorado Springs area to retire, and loving it. I could live full time out of the RV in a heart beat; my wife prefers to have a permanent place to call home.

Scubabone and dog Lizzie!

A delightful couple with a wonderful, well-behaved dog. We enjoyed each other's company as well as their dog.
All three are welcome to come visit us again!!! Wine is very good!!!

We were traveling ourselves so unfortunately we never met them.

It's to bad we didn't meet, they were familiar with traveling to Alaska, which we have coming up. I don't think they had any problems or concerns, they just stayed over night. One of these days our paths will cross, maybe at their place. I hope you made it to burger night in Moab?

Lovely hosts and a beautiful view!

We stayed two nights in October and it was wonderful! Hosts were so helpful and accommodating, and Lizzie is a doll :O) It was so quiet and peaceful, with a beautiful sunrise on one side and sunset on the other! Would definitely love to stay again!

Lizzie’s

This was a great stay! Easy parking and in a very quiet area. Windy my first night! My host had resources for things to do and helped me with a camper issue. Discovered a great breakfast at Frankie’s Bar (Thur to Sun only) - real bacon! I would stay here again.

Easy and Fun

We had a great 4 night stay at Lizzie's Mountain View. The parking area is level and was easy to back into (35' Class A) with plenty of room beside it to park the toad. It was convenient to many attractions and the hosts provided a guide book and list of suggestions for us to check out. We went to Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds and Painted Mine. It was also a quick drive to WalMart, groceries, etc and only 40 minutes into Co. Springs for movies, etc. We are super appreciative of these great hosts!

Wonderful High Prairie Get Away

This place was absolutely gorgeous, the hosts we amazing and always thinking on how to better their guest experience. We stayed the max nights and our puppy enjoyed playing with their dog, they both tired themselves out and slept well anxious for the next day of playing. The night skies are beautiful and my wife and I were able to take a few strolls under the stars. This was our third Boondockers stay and it was absolutely memorable. We feel like we have friends for life and looking forward to seeing them again!

Great place and great people!!

Scubabone were awesome hosts! This was a great place to stop on my way into the mountains. Beautiful views. Thoroughly enjoyed my conversations with them both, as well as my multiple times a day play sessions with their lovable pup!

Wonderful Hosts, Peaceful Setting

This was our first Boondockers Welcome experience and it was so wonderful! We enjoyed the view of Pikes Peak, the country setting and the hospitality. Our host welcomed us and provided us with a list of area places of interest in addition to local amenities for RVers. This was truly an amazing experience!

Fabulous Hosts

We were warmly welcomed in person by the hosts and the lovely lady Lizzie their sweet dog. She is so sweet and playful and loves when company comes to visit.
The early morning sunrise was absolutely gorgeous and the cool breeze throughout our coach was so relaxing. They told us about the pond near their house and we had a nice walk to it with our 3 chihuahuas. They were phenomenal hosts and we will definitely stay again when we go through this area.
Thank you for your hospitality!

Wonderful host & location!

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by our host and their friendly dog. Parking was easy, even in our 35ft Class A. The rural setting was perfect, with a view of the grasslands on one side and the mountains on the other. Easy access to plenty of city conveniences was a treat. We would love to have stayed longer & would come back.

Wonderful hosts in a great location!

We truly enjoyed our stay and getting to know the owners. They were so gracious and hospitable to us and our children. They even brought us over to meet the neighbors' mini horse and donkey so the kids could see them! Great location near Colorado Springs. Very calm and quiet. Thank you again!

Super!

I am so grateful that this option existed! I had to be in town for a long weekend to help family move and I couldn’t find any campgrounds with availability in the area. I thought of BW and was so happy they had availability for me! They were super welcoming and provided me a great, flat sleeping spot for three nights. I looooove their dog and enjoyed walking around the neighborhood with my dog. I didn’t need hookups or water, so I took the spot with the view. I slept great! Thank you!!!

Lovely Mountain View

Lizzie’s Place is a wonderful place to visit. This is our fist time using boondockers and the experience was perfect. The hosts were the best. They helped us get situated and even had a handout with local attractions and listings for anything you might need with your RV.

Thank you guys again for sharing your place with us.

Great location and awesome hosts!

This was such a great location for us as it was so close to so much. Our hosts even provided a list of recommendations and other helpful items, such as nearby dump stations etc. This was a very thoughtful touch. The view of Pikes Peak from their place is also very nice . Our dogs were thoroughly entertained by all the rabbits on the property. Really enjoyed meeting this couple (and Lizzie) and would definitely recommend this spot!

Wonderful stay!

Scubabone were excellent hosts and their property is beautiful with such a stunning view of the mountains! We were so thankful to be able to wait out a storm there and enjoyed chatting with our hosts and meeting their cute pup!

Super Friendly-quiet spot

Thanks so much for the fun overnight stay. The cool wind howled a little and rocked our tiny home a bit, but conversation was very warm and welcome.
If you are ever in Victoria please look us up.

Friendly hosts in nice neighborhood

I only met the hosts for a few minutes but they were kind enough to help guide me into the spot on their large driveway (my backing skills are lacking!). They were friendly and the location is in a nice, safe neighborhood with views of the mountains! Great spot if you're checking out Co Springs area.

Amazing

Absolutely amazing! We stayed 3 nights and couldn't have asked for anything better! Karen was super friendly, easy to communicate with, and gave plenty of recommendations of stuff to do in the area. The location is ideal: a quiet neighborhood near Colorado Springs with beautiful views of Pike's Peak. AND we had 30amp hookup for the duration of our stay. Great experience. Highly recommend if you are in the area!!

Beautiful Mt. Views

We stayed with scubabone 3 nights and it was very relaxing. The host or very laid back easy going and communicated well with us even though I had all sorts of problems on my end with my internet connection. Their location is great not to close to Co. Springs but an easy drive in to all the attractions. Thanks again to both of them. Oh yeah if you are nice you will get to pet Lizzie!

Perfect

This was a great place to stay. Hosts very nice and have lived in the area long enough to tell us interesting places to check out. We were able to do a day trip to Pikes Peak, and Garden of the Gods. Both are easily done in one day from here. Their dog is very nice and got along with ours. Beautiful sunsets from here, we were never up early enough for a sunrise but I’m sure it’s equally great. Lots of wildlife in the area, biggest bunnies we’ve ever seen! Lots of prong horns in the area. Enjoy-we sure did.

Great stay!

Wonderful hosts who were generous with their time, their property, and their knowledge of the area. My dog will miss their super sweet dog and hunting for Jack rabbits!

The location has a tremendous view of mountains to one side and prairie to the other. Easy access to pikes peak and local sites.

Hope to see the hosts on the road sometime. Stay in touch!

With the luck of improving weather conditions we visited the Peak and returned on this site. Extension with one day no problem. Thank you Doug and Karen for your hapitality; we enjoyed.

Lovely view!

We had a lovely stay at Lizzie’s Mountain View! The view is amazing and our hosts were so nice and very helpful. They even had a printout with helpful info, which was useful for us to find a nearby dump station.

Great road weary stop

A VERY nice overnight with welcoming gracious hosts. And Lizzie doggie kisses too! Lots of room for any sized rig. We thought we might appreciate the offer of 30 amp hookup for A/C but balmy midsummer high desert breezes were much better! Didn’t spend as much time in the area as we hoped but look forward to a return visit.

Gorgeous view with generous hosts

They were wonderful hosts! They welcomed us with open arms, gave us great options for parking, helped us get the RV situated, and even showed us around the neighborhood! We will definitely visit again the next time we are in CO. Springs!

Perfect Spot

What a great spot and an even nicer couple. We spent Memorial Day Weekend here! The hosts were extremely generous to us. We had a few issues and they went above and beyond the call to help us. Will definitely stop and see them if we’re back in the area.

Wish we had some time to become better acquainted. We were in Colorado Springs for a graduation and were very grateful for this boondocking home for 3 days.
