Contacted Moon City via Harvest Host app on 4/4/22 for a 4/16/22 stay. No communication from Moon City at all. Sent a message via Harvest Host app, only way to contact Moon City, with cell number and request to advise if requested stay was a go or no go on 4/15/22, with no communication. Not sure if they had an emergency or something else but definitely disappointed that we were not contact ed either way as of 4:29 pm on 4/16/22. Had to make other plans last minute for an overnight stay.

We were warmly welcomed and very much enjoyed our stay. Sorry having to leave so early. Would have loved to spend some more time as we enjoyed our conversations

We were warmly welcomed by wonderful hosts .As if we'd been friends for long we enjoyed some hours talking . We had to leave early the next morning and were sorry we couldn't have spent some more time together.

Steve.Chris are amazing hosts who we are now proud to call friends. They welcomed us despite the fact they were also busy packing their RV to leave in the morning. Since we were heading in the same direction and they planned to stay at a Cracker Barrel, we decided to join them there. It was a cold night but they hooked us up to share their generator. So provided us with electric not just at their home but from on the road as well. Can't beat that!! Hope they will come visit us in Ontario soon.
