We can also accept trash and recycling and offer some tools for emergency "easier" repairs. We have hospital, auto part, grocery, vet, hardware, restruants, craft coffee, city parks/paths and 5 museums all within 0-4 walking miles.

The Rafferty’s were super friendly and helpful! Their neighbors were friendly as well, some of them RVers as well even! We parked on the street in front of the house. We brought our own extension cord, so electric hookup was very easy! Water access is also doable if you carry extra extension hose. Our family took a lovely walk along the river on a bike path- it was a great little stop!

Wonderful overnite respite for a couple of weary travelers! Sean was helpful with recommendations for dinner and enjoying the paved trails running by the river. Park, explore, sleep. Wish we could have stayed longer!

This was such a beautiful neighborhood with a riverside park right behind it. We were exhausted from a long drive and a peaceful spot to park and relax was just what we needed! Thank you :)
