Access Road Conditions: Access off Route 195 up Browns Rd is not recommended due to the sudden sharp incline. We can provide alternate routes. We live 800’ back in the woods up a dirt driveway. Small branches may brush the tops or sides of large rigs. We have a spacious yard and rigs can park either in the sun or in all day shade. Longer rigs must make a k-turn in the yard to go back down the driveway. Smaller rigs may be able to pull around. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: In the driveway or next to their rig in the yard.

    We had a great time with John and Jo. They were welcoming. We even made Jo run who had to catch up with us because we had missed the entrance. Very calm and peaceful place. Surrounded by trees. Thanks also to them for taking the time to talk with us despite the language barrier. We will gladly come back

    John and Jo were very accommodating and friendly. The spot was so peaceful and it was easy to get a good night's sleep. I enjoyed the Willimantic Brewing Company located in an old post office nearby that John recommended. I hope to stay again when I'm in the area.

    This is my second time staying with my host and once again it was a very peaceful stay! The first time I stayed it rained quite a bit and I didn't get to see much of the area, but this time I got a chance to ride quite a bit of the East Coast Greenway Trail which is not far from their house. Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay once again!
