Tom and Christy have been hosting for about 5 years even though they do not own an RV yet. They are so generous and kind. Such a quiet and peaceful place they have. Thank you for everything. May all good things come your way.

ponsetwoods's was a great great place to get some rest. We arrived late so to tire/tires problems. The hosts were amazing! Perfect directions, didn't get to meet them until the next morning do to our tardy ness but the were both very kind and most accommodating. Her on the phone and him in person. Left us with a list of local attractions WiFi password, very quiet and peaceful. Was offered electric, and WiFi, but do to our lar arrival time and early departure time we didn't us them. Easley turned our 20" camper van pulling a 12" enclosed trailer around was a breeze. Thanks again Ponsetwoods's for blessing my wife and I with a nice, quite, safe place to rest for the night.

My stay at Ponsetwoods was my first Boondockers Welcome experience and what an excellent experience it was. Tom responded quickly to my last minute request for a one-night stay and gave me clear directions as to how to find this rather secluded spot. Tom greeted me as I rolled down his driveway and handed me an information sheet to help me make my stay comfortable. He had thought of everything and offered me water, an extension cord if I didn't have one.....Their home and grounds are beautiful and serene ,I definitely recommend this as a stopping spot.
