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”

House Rules

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

Location

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.

    Molly is an affectionate and curious guard dog. The site is indeed very close to services. We unfortunately could not stay because we were unable to level our rig with our hydraulic leveling jacks. The parking alley has a slope of more than 7 degrees lengthwise and more than 2 degrees from side to side. We would have had to use leveling blocks, which we do not use or carry with us (we never needed any before).

    Paved long driveway where owner meet us and showed us where to park. Thanks for the tips on downloading an app for truck routes due to low bridges and parkway restrictions. This was our first experience needing TruckMap app after traveling from Southern US to California and through Canada. Very quiet and peaceful night.

    great communication, especially the reminder about the nearby parkways with low bridges. i took the trail down to the river and lost the formal path ablut halfway down, but its pretty easy to find a rover at the bottom of a ridge! lovely spot. thank you!
