Same Day Requests
We live on 3 1/2 wooded acres surrounded by much larger undeveloped property on two sides. In spite of the fact that we seem to be isolated we are within 10 to 15 minutes of almost anything you would want like Home Depot, supermarkets, auto supply stores, Walmart etc. The property also contains an Airbnb rental with a variety of amenities that are available to our paying guests. We are providing a quiet space facing the woods with a 30 amp electric hook up and a hose to fill your tank. If you are traveling with a dog that does not get along with other dogs this is not a good fit. Our super-friendly pup wants to play! If you need to reach me my number is 203-644-5124 Suggested Local Attractions:There’s a lot to do here, including our own private hiking trail. There are many restaurants and other attractions. Because we are also Airbnb hosts we have a website which contains a lot of information about local attractions. The website is “ourcountryproperty.com”
Vehicle Suitability Information
Electric Hookup: 30A
Outdoor Cooking Allowed
We want our guest to be quiet and respectful. You can smoke next to your RV but no other place. Children are welcome. We have a very active puppy who will probably greet you enthusiastically. If you don’t like dogs you won’t like it here! While we don’t expect you to be gone first thing in the morning, please don’t overstay your welcome. If you have a dog he/she must be friendly and you will need to show a Rabies certificate
Access Road Conditions: We have a 500 foot long Blacktop driveway that is just wide enough for a motorhome. There is enough space at the bottom of the driveway to park a guest motorhome as well as our own Phoenix 31. I regularly drive our Phoenix up and down and can turn it around in the driveway. My previous rig was a 40 foot bluebird which came down the driveway but Had to be backed out because it was too large to turn around. There are no overhanging trees that would get in the way. If you want to hook up to our 30amp you will need an extension to your shore power cord. We do not allow generators. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: We can only accommodate a motorhome and a toad. No trailers or fifth wheels. They cannot be turned around in our space.

This was a very spur of the moment stop for us because we decided to drive an additional hour to shorten a long drive the following day. Gabe was a very amenable host and got back to us quickly with directions on how to reach his property. He has several paved spots to park in, one of which accomodated our Winnabego View well. The sites are not super level. We were able to use our Legos to level up enough that we were comfortable sleeping. If you are super sensitive to unlevel sites, this is not the location for you. He has two young, very friendly and very rambunctious dogs that love to run the property and visit inside RVs.

Very peaceful stay. Host was gracious enough to allow an additional night stay. Enjoyed the Riverwalks and Ansonia a neighboring town with lots of character.

This is a lovely place to stay. The driveway is not quite level but a few leveling blocks were all that was needed. Very nice hosts and quiet setting.
