We have RV parking on the property that is relatively flat. It is mostly shaded except for AM and only suitable for Class C (25') or smaller RV's. Also, we may be able to provide for rental: bikes, tools, shop equipment (table saw, band saw, planer, jointer/planer) If I'm not busy, as a professional woodworker I can help modify, repair, build ... most anything. There is a dump station about 1/4mi from us. Suggested Local Attractions:Seattle, Olympic mountains and quaint towns like Poulsbo, Gig Harbor, Port Orchard, Silverdale; US Naval Shipyard Bremerton

House Rules

Must love German Shepherd dogs that freely roam the property, and be willing to close the gate after entry into or exit from the RV space. Three-day maximum stay. We live in a quiet area so running a generator is not allowed. While there are no hook-ups, we may be able to help with electrical and H2O needs - but no promises. Friendly Dogs are welcome and can be off-leash while in the fenced area, but, clean-up after your pet is required. If dog behavior becomes a problem, we can keep our dogs corralled for your stay. There is about 1/2 acre for your enjoyment.

    Not only did we got a great place to park for 3 days, we made new friends ! Bill and Mary are awesome, generous and friendly people. Parking spot is shaded and secluded - all we wanted! Port Orchard is a lovely town by the water, we enjoyed the antiques stores. We will meet again with them soon :)

    Tucked down behind a house — and I do mean down — in a niche among towering cedars, Bill keeps a reasonably level dirt space for small RV’s. Shaded, cool, quiet, and private. A fifth-wheel or a Class A would fit, maybe, but it would be damn difficult to maneuver into place and out again. I was here for two nights, giving me plenty of time to explore Port Orchard, across to Bremerton and around Puget Sound. There was shore power for the taking — they even provide the long cord — so I took it on the second night. Bill & Mary have a DIY-kind-of RV themselves, perfect for a couple with two good-sized dogs. We had a great time sitting in the shade on their back deck, swapping tales from the road and you-gotta-see’s. Thanks for a good stay! I wish you the best in your travels! Rick

    We stayed only one night. Wish we could have stayed longer as it was so quiet & peaceful there. Mary greeted us as soon as we arrived & showed us our spot, Bill made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. There are flowers everywhere in Mary's garden. A real treat.

    Bill and Mary were so kind to us at this lovely spot by the bay in Bremerton. Very communicative and helpful with suggestions for our visit to the Olympic Peninsula. Only wish we could have stayed a little longer and had more time to chat! Would happily return!

    Bill and Mary were wonderful hosts! They were so patient with me less than adequate backing skills. We finally succeeded in getting me in and straight. Their property has huge trees, plenty of shade, which I love and plenty of room for my pugs to roam. Their dogs are so sweet and halfway afraid of my pugs. i believe next time we ho, my boys will be more comfortable and not such curmudgeons. The location is great, experience Taps from the Naval Base. I could say a lot more but suffice it to say, if thell have me again, I’ll be back! i really enjoyed my conversations with Mary, as well!
