A couple of part-time RV'ers Details: My Husband and I love to RV and meet fellow RV'ers. We adore the National Parks and have made 2 three-month-long cross country trips in the US and shorter trips on the east coast and across eastern Canada, including Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. Loved them all! We're interested in history, culture, good food and meeting local folks. We are also a boondocker's host location (Beautiful Berkshires). Home Town: Sandisfield, MA in the beautiful Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We have enjoyed a number of Boondocker's Welcome locations and also some BLM lands out west (one of the best was at Joe Skeen BLM campground at El Malpais National Monument, New Mexico). Another nice boondocking location was through Harvest Hosts at Vermillionville outside Lafayette, Louisiana. We've also hosted almost 100 boondockers at our "Beautiful Berkshires" host location. Skills or Expertise to Share: My husband Ron is an excellent amateur genealogist and history buff and has written several history books. I am an IT consultant and love to figure out how to get the best internet on the road. I have a degree in music from the Boston Conservatory and I love to sing and to play the ukulele. When we're not traveling, we participate in a community theater group and I also teach ukulele and lead a local community ukulele group.

    I had the absolute pleasure of staying two night at Beautiful Berkshires. When I first read about Jean and Ron being superhosts I thought, what does someone donto make them a superhost. I now understand why. Jean and Ron were beyond hospitable. Not only do they let you stay on their stunning property, they will take you for a walk to a beautiful pond, show you their Koi pond, share their garden, give power, help trouble shoot RV issues, share history, and to top it all off, give you an intro into Ukulele. These two have spoiled me beyond any expectations. Wonderful stay, beautiful location and amazing hosts.

    Very nice owners! They both came out to greet us and were very helpful in telling us about the area. Were having company or we would have been able to play a few tunes with them on the ukelele. A little off the beaten path but a good experience and would love to go back,. Parked next to a cool barn. Easily backed in with our class B. Had a great time at a meadery down the road. Made honey wine. Music and good times.

    Our stay was wonderful. Our hosts met us, we’re polite, respectful and very informative about the property and the local things to do. There was a level parking spot that was easy to back into. We had enjoyable hikes near the property and enjoyed a quiet dinner. Night time was quiet and restful. We will stay again!
