We are retired farmers. In the summer we have sheep, goats, and/or horses grazing our pastures but they aren't ours so can't guarantee they'll be here when you visit. Sandy also repurposes old furniture and "junk" into usable items and gifts in her workshop. Suggested Local Attractions: Blessing of the Bikes in June; Moose Festival last week in August; Lancaster County Fair, Labor Day Weekend. Near Beaver Brook Falls National Area, Poore Family Homestead Museum. Tillotson Center and Great North Woods Committee for the Arts host concerts, plays, visual and performing arts. Lots of hiking, biking, fishing and hunting. ATV trails right down the road.

host Profile

Hosted By Sandy_Jim_Davis

Age:

65+

The youngest old person you'll ever meet. Details: Sandy is a retired NH Licensed Massage Therapist and Jim is retired from GE. We started a homestead farm in 2002 and raised egg and meat chickens, milk goats, sometimes a few freezer pigs or lambs. In 2019 we decided we'd had enough of north country winters and wanted to spend the winter months somewhere where there wasn't snow, ice and bitter cold. We sold our farm livestock (400 chickens, 15 goats, and 3 Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs), and bought our RV. We come back to the north country for the spring, summer and fall months to enjoy the beautiful surroundings we live in. Home Town: Columbia, NH Favorite Boondocking Locations: No place in particular. Skills or Expertise to Share: Jim can fix just about anything. Sandy is an excellent carpenter and loves interior decorating. She repurposes old furniture and "junk" in her workshop, turning them into useful items and gifts. She also loves to write about their travels on her travel blog at crosscountrycruzin.blogpot.com.

    Great place to visit VT/NH/ME- stayed here for the purpose of finding Moose, and our trip did not disappoint. 30 Minutes to the West in a VT wildlife refuge we were able to see 3, and the next day 30 minutes to East in NH Dixville Notch State Park were able to see 3 more! Beautiful area, and gracious hosts.

    We really enjoyed our stay here camping in a truck camper. The site is close to their house on nice level gravel overlooking a tranquil pond, with horned sheep wandering the property. Sandy and Jim are gracious and caring hosts, and their stories are fun and educational. It felt like coming home. Would definitely love to return next time we’re in the area.

    Sandy and Jim are the poster hosts for BW! They have such an ease about them and they made me feel like I was back home in Louisiana they were so warm and welcoming. Honestly, I could have stayed a month enjoying the surroundings and observing the sheep that were grazing on their land; but it got a *little* chilly for this southern man! Many, many thanks for incredible hospitality; hope to see y'all on the road or in '23!

    The hosts were amazing. Such a nice last minute stay. Even with another guest there we both were able to stay and also hook up to electric which was amazing since we had so much rain. They showed us around and all the projects they are working on along with gave us some delicious herbs

    I want to thank both of them for hosting us, being our first time using an RV. The site was a beautiful place very scenic and relaxing. Great stay for anyone needing a break.
