    Carl and Melissa were gracious hosts. After welcoming me to their home they invited me to join them for a drink. We talked talked about bike riding, things to do in Richmond and vanlife. They have a separate fire pit and chairs set up for guests. The parking spot is fairly level on grass and easy to get in and out of. This is place to stay with wonderful hosts.

    They prepared a visitors information box for local activities and places of interest and dining. Along with some local beer. They're very generous and made me feel welcomed as a long time friend. Recommend getting to know these great host and the place they call home. Thank you

    Carl and Melissa are terrific hosts! They made us feel so welcome. From a few cold beers, dog treats and a meticulously prepared local guide to mountain bike trail and restaurant recommendations - we couldn’t have asked for more! We can’t wait to come back 😊
