    Miss L greeted us and helped arrange the parking. Her advice for exploring Huntsville was helpful and spot on for things we like to do. Our RV is 25 ft which I think is the Hosts max. We filled the parking area. We would love to stay again on a future trip. Thank You for a great BDW stay.

    Our Host let us know ahead of time where we should park and greeted us on our arrival. We stayed 2 nights to allow us some time to explore Huntsville. Botanical Gardens, Rocket Center, StoveHouse, Lowe Mill and trails. Pick three! Navigating was easy using Google maps. 15 amp worked well. The neighborhood has sidewalks and we used them to get our steps in. Quiet day and night. Thanks for Hosting.

    This was a nice quiet place to catch a good nights sleep. The driveway is kinda narrow and a bit steep. I would only recommend a Class B/Van unit.

    The Widow is a delightful, friendly, warm hostess who shared with us a number of nearby attractions. We did get to visit the wonderful Huntsville Botanical Gardens as well as the S and R Center. We are impressed with her gardening enthusiasm and and would love to see the spring and summer results! The driveway was adequate, although a bit narrow and sloped so our unit required some leveling. Very quiet neighborhood allowed for a peaceful night's rest. Thank you for your gracious hospitality.
