Parking is next to my barn where someone can plug into 110, $6 reimbursement to cover my costs if electricity is used for AC. I have water available, but not right at the parking site. I’ve had logging trucks on the property, so access shouldn’t be a problem for average size RVs, up to, but no over 38’. You need to back in to get to the spot. Very good backing up skills a must. My home is intown Durham, close to UNH and there’s 10 acres out back for dog walking...off lease if well trained. Contained Firepit is OK as long as there isn’t a fire ban. 10 miles from Portsmouth NH and the beaches, about one hour from the mountains.

    We spent one night here and it was great! We arrived later then we wanted but the host came out of the house, hooked us up with electric and made sure all was good. Later that night he sent us a text just checking to make sure all was well. Had beautiful property to take the dog for a walk.

    Quick response to request, friendly welcome, a private parking area, great host to enjoy conversation and a fire pit with. Love the architecture of their home. Thank you to Mark and Karyl for hosting us. We would love to meet up again.

    We stayed at GarageMahal for one night so we could attend a function at UNH. The host was welcoming and helpful. The communication was excellent. We definitely would stay again.
