I stayed here one night passing through. The Hosts were very nice and even provided me with information on local businesses I might need to visit (grocers, vets, etc...). I would stay here again.

Hosts made us feel very much at home, and were above and beyond accommodating! Highly recommended host, and we will likely stay again in the future if we get a chance! Hosts enjoy boondocking themselves, and have a few fun tips and tricks to share.

Ahh, the Boonies. The place held true to its name, very rural - but extremely quiet, peaceful and relaxing. And as for the Hosts, they were absolutely wonderful people who are very pleasant to talk to. I wish I had a few more days here. Their knowledge in solar applications, preparedness and preserving is something I hope to learn more about in a future visit. Thanks again for the wonderful hospitality!

We had a pleasant stay with the Boones daughter who was watching the house. Corn fields and soybeans reminded me of the farm I grew up on. Ate ar the Rosebud LLC in Clifford and the Sundance Cafe in North Branch. Recommend both of them. Would love to see the build out on the box truck using 80/20 aluminum. Maybe we'll meet up in the future.
