The driveway and site are clear of low hanging branches. Our only water supply is a shallow dug well, no city water here. Upon request we can only offer to fill 4-5 water jugs if you do not mind drinking well water until you can fill up. We have lots of wood to burn; it's illegal to bring firewood into NH. No problem with turn around areas or toads. Security Cameras on the premises. VERIZON works best in these parts. FALL ALERT: For those staying with us during leaf peeping season, our 70-90 foot red oaks love to grow huge acorns and during Sept/Oct tons of them are released day and night, so we will position you away from the fire pit, unless you don't mind them landing on your roof. DUMP: We can only offer information. If you can hold off there is a free dumping station at the Concord Wastewater Treatment or if an urgent need there are a number of campgrounds within 20 miles, though pricey you can dump.

We host for altruistic reasons, offering a safe haven to travelers! We are also Hosts in emergency situations in the FMCA and Escapees Directory. We have to trust you are who you say you are! If your profile has no personal information of who you are, no references, and not at least 1 photo of you and you rig, your request will be assumed as coming from a phishing account and your request will be declined. We have hosted many and are more than happy to share our property with you (for free we might add) ONLY if you agree to respect us enough to comply with our rules. It is plain and simple WE are paying the mortgage, so it's all about respect and trust and a free place for you to park! If a Newbie with no references, then prepare a good Bio profile, or give us a good introduction in your request. ===================================================================================(1) DO NOT request a stay between 9pm and 7am EST, because your text request is received by hosts instantaneously. *We only leave our cell phones on for emergencies between 9pm and 7 am.* ===================================================================================(2) By requesting a stay with us, Guests assume all liability while in route or on our property. ===================================================================================(3) Update all of your stats before making requests. Many times people have arrived in a different rig and on occasion with 1 or more kids and 1 or more pets than what they stated in their profile. ===================================================================================(4) COVID-19: We have health issues and have been boosted. If you have not been vaccinated and boosted you agree to tell us when you arrive, wearing a mask when interacting in close proximity and maintain social distancing at all times. ===================================================================================(5) Include approximate time of day, i.e., morning or afternoon in your request and text us the day before or 2-3hrs prior to your arrival with a more definitive ETA. Plan to arrive during *daylight hours* for safety purposes, if you miss our driveway turning around it could get tricky as the road narrows and offers just a couple driveways with granite pillars. ===================================================================================(6) Kids are the responsibility of their parent(s)/guardian(s) at ALL times, and NOT for us to supervise! There are several playgrounds in the area. Our property is not a playground or childproofed and safety is our major concern. If we need to point that out, you will be on notice, we don’t want anyone wandering or running around getting hurt. We want everyone to have a pleasant stay here. ===================================================================================(7) Your stay request is for you, a BW member and people you are traveling with. Invitations or plans to get together with family and/or friends should be made elsewhere, NOT here at Able Acres for insurance purposes. ===================================================================================(8) Dogs: People friendly and other dog friendly dogs are welcomed, as long as they are not prolific barkers. If your dog bites a person or another dog, we are compelled to call Animal Control. If you need to exercise your dog, our road is not heavily trafficked and there is a dog park at “the Nick” less than 4 miles, as you go into town. If you know that your dog barks when you leave it alone in your rig and go off for the day, please don’t leave it alone in your rig. We expect your dog to be on a lead at all times when outside of your rig, with neighborhood wildlife, i.,e., porcupine, deer, turkey, black bear, bobcat and mountain lions, you will keep your dog from going in chase. Wolfeboro has a 6' leash law but our neighbors' dogs don’t know that, and we don’t encourage their visits here. ===================================================================================(9) Because of the wildlife listed in (8) please don’t leave any food outside of your rig or vehicle. If you drop food please pick all of it up or notify us. ===================================================================================(10) The fire department has issued us as a Dry Woodland Area, smoking outside your rig is limited to the fire pit and please do not leave your butts. ===================================================================================(11) No Fireworks under any circumstances any time any year, and if you travel with firearms keep them out of sight! ===================================================================================(12) Generator: Allowed. Quiet hours: 10:00 pm thru 7:00 am. =================================================================================== Updated 6/2022
Access Road Conditions: 1/4 mile on slightly inclined, town maintained gravel road. We can only accommodate up to 40’ rigs. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Anywhere near the driveway.

Lifetime New Englanders. Hearty retirees with a love and respect for Nature! Details: Summertime is busy with our small vegetable and flower garden, and cutting, splitting and stacking firewood to carry us through the winter months. We love everything outdoors: National, State, all Parks in general, mountains, rivers, deserts, rail trails, everything about this country; RV travel, a beautiful sunrise/sunset, good food, good conversations, and good people. We used our stimulus checks in 2021 to buy Lectric XP bikes, they fold, we pack them in tubs and they travel with us in our tow. Now we look for rail trails suitable to trailer our Australian Labradoodle wherever we go; he loves being with us and riding in his “chariot.” We are Escapees and FMCA members/hosts, also Good Sam, Passport America, and Harvest Hosts Members (all in 2015). We have extensively traveled independently, starting with a tent, a truck camper, van, tent trailer, travel trailer, and together in timeshares, then motorcycle trips, and in 2012 we took up RVing. We loved our 44 day swing through the S and SW in 2015 and in 2016 we met so many extraordinary people on a Country Music tour with Fantasy Tours. Our 117 day life changing adventure in 2017 included the Alaska Your Way Tour (62 days with Fantasy Tours), round trip it took us a total of 14,000 miles. Hope to get back there soon and stay the first of July thru the end of Sept. We learned about BW in 2016 and readily joined; we have been hosting ever since. The philosophy of the BW is similar to the pioneer days in the expansion in our country when strangers stopped at a homestead for safety and rest! And if you haven’t picked up on it yet the bonus of being a member of BW is not only do you have a safe haven to park, but that with every visit whether a host or a guest it is a learning experience, something you'll never find in any campground or park, so needless to say our preference is BW! We enjoy interacting with people with different perspectives, they open our eyes to new way of seeing the world; and we have met some incredible people, became friends with folks whose paths we never would have crossed if not for BW! We are planning on many more years of RVing and being a Boondockers Welcome Host as long as we are located here. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Anywhere and everywhere far away from cities! Skills or Expertise to Share: One of us has completed a Small Engine Course. The other plans trips.

This is our second time with these ladies!! They were very hospitable and welcoming! I tried to keep up on communication as soon as we were on the road and they responded and told us where to turn when our GPS was telling us to go another way... Looking forward to our time together again!! One of our favorite hosts!

All the positive comments are true. These ladies rock. The site is splendid. It has been one of our favorites to date. A drive through spot that is almost leveled. We appreciated the 20 AMP hook up. Not super close to the house. So, we had some privacy. A tranquil place that felt secluded. They provided wood for the fire pit on our site. Close to the Cotton Valley Rail Trail. You can walk it or bike it. We would say take your bike(s) if you have it. It takes you into town. A couple of spots nearby for kayaking and/or swimming. It was a great pleasure meeting Lindsay and Amy. Thanks so much for your hospitality ladies! For your interest and making yourselves available to us. We hope you continue to enjoy hosting and allowing others to experience what we did. So, don’t take advantage of their kindness y’all. We want them to keep hosting! We shall return. :-)

Let me first say - please read the other reviews. There is not much more I can add. This is a very quit serene spot. The Hosts, Amy & Lindsay, are the best. If there were more like these two in the world it would be a perfect one. Well, we know how that is. In any case, if you get accepted please read their house rules & respect them. I would hate to see these fantastic folks stop doing what they do for the RVing world of boondockers. They have inspired me to to look into doing the same and provide a location. They give great directions. Use those as you get closer as the GPS apps are not the best. Also, they will text you with info, keep that handy as it is a good idea to keep them up to date on you travel. Sometimes things happen when in travel, it’s only good practice to keep any host informed. Have a great time here. They are very helpful and answer many questions to may have.
