The hosts were so nice to let us stay on their beautiful property. We were exhausted from our trip, and it was too chilly to hang out, but they seem like great fellow RVers. The driveway was easily accessible and flat. A nearby TA Travel Center offered food, diesel, gas, a dump site, and the site was very close to easy access on I84. We had dinner nearby at the Hilltop Restaurant and it was great. Wonderful, restful night.
