Location

Access Road Conditions: We live in the country on a 2 lane paved road. We have a wide drive but if you have a 5th wheel you just have to swing wide to miss the walls at the driveway entrance AND swing very wide to make it around the circle drive. Larger rigs will want to come in to our drive from the east; the intersection to the west is two county roads and may be tight. I have 4+ locations: Circular drive in front of the house. This is about a 70' diameter drive. Larger rigs will still need to swing wide. There is 15 (maybe 20) amp electric and water available here. Circular drive in back of the house. This is about a 30' diameter drive. The max that can turn around in this drive is around a 33' 5th wheel (and that is challenging). Overhead clearance is just enough for a larger 5th wheel. Larger rigs will definitely need a spotter to make this turn. There is a 60A welder plug here that I have adapters for to get to 50A, 30A, or 15/20A. Water is available here. Pull off on east side of front circular drive. This is a 50' drive that is an entrance for our barn. There is a 60A welder plug here that I have adapters for to get to 50A, 30A, or 15/20A. Water is available here. Water is available but we have to run a hose across the main driveway so it can only be used to fill your tank to avoid running over it. Parking is also available in our back pastures, but it needs to be dry, and water/electric is pretty far away for all but one.

Law Enforcement Professional with 5 acre property Details: My wife, daughter, and I live about a mile out of town on a 5 acre property with a circle drive in front and a circle drive behind the house. We have 7 dogs that are usually contained, along with 4 horses, chickens, and 2 outdoor cats. We also have a second property with no electricity or wifi, but it has a pond and is a nice primitive site for smaller rigs. 5th wheels will find it almost impossible to get in. Home Town: Richmond, IN Skills or Expertise to Share: I'm mechanically inclined and can help with minor repairs if needed.

    Our experience couldn’t have been better! Sharon came outside when we arrived and helped us back in (because we’re awful at it), so that we could hook up to their electric. They had an adaptor, thank goodness! The family has several animals, which made us feel comfortable, because we’re traveling with 5 dogs. It’s not often you can find a nice place to park that doesn’t mind that number of dogs! We’ll be staying here again on our return trip. Can’t wait! Thank you, Escher House!

    Great place to spend a night. Very quiet. Allen was nice to give us some fresh eggs. Easy in and out, level parking. Lots of room for our dog to run. Definitely stay again.

    This spot was easy to find and a peaceful place of rest for our overnight stay. Just before arriving I found that my license plate has lost a screw and I had a temporary fix. When I mentioned it to Allen he found more appropriate screws, washers, and bolts to better secure the plate to my cargo box and it was much appreciated! We enjoyed our stay and we’re grateful for the peace of mind about our plate. Allen went above and beyond to help us.

    The hosts were fantastic and accomodating, getting us off the road with only an hour notice in the rain. The property was perfect, hookups quick and effortless. We got a nice greeting from Hank the dog as we opened the door to see the sunrise. Great place to flop for the night!
