    We very much enjoyed our overnight stay at Mary Lou and Dave's lovely property. They have created a lovely creekside parking area for a visiting RV, complete with picnic table. With friendly hosts, their Airstream adjacent, and kind offers of water and electricity, what's not to love?! Many thanks!

    Mary Lou and Dave welcomed us to there property. Great location off the lake in a picturesque setting. Dave was putting the finishing touches on a nice level gavel pad next to the garage along the creekside. Great folks, can’t forget to mention the dog Lulu that enjoyed the extra attention. Thank you both!

    A beautiful property with the kindest of hosts. Mary Lou and Dave have carved out the perfect little spot for fellow travelers. The gravel parking area was the perfect size for our motor home and little tow vehicle. Super easy in and out and we were generously offered electric and a fresh water tank fill. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. Thanks again!

    We are blown away by how wonderful these folks are! Great communicators and we got warm welcoming smiles upon our arrival! Easy access to their driveway and plenty of room to maneuver into the parking area. What a beautiful home and landscaped yard. It was so quiet  and peaceful. Our pup loves new territory so we walked part of the Missisquoi Rail Trail and biked part of the Lemoille Rail Trail with him in tow in his chariot. We followed the hosts's recommendation for a maple creemee, it is a must when in Vermont and ice cream stand season. We could hardly believe how huge and tasty they were and how lucky we were, it was Devyn's last day of the season! We were grateful for every time we got to chat with them and feel as though we've know them for years. We came as strangers and left as friends.
