Relaxing rural farm-home at the foot of the scenic Blue Ridge mountains in S. Central PA. Nearby Amish run greenhouses offer a pleasant afternoon of browsing and shopping for all things growing during most of the year. There are Civil War historical areas to visit in nearby Chambersburg and Shippensburg; Caledonia and Cowans Gap State Parks offer hiking and swimming options as well as some close by local hiking opportunities on DCNR public land. Chambersburg has a number of arts and crafts venues, lots of antique shops and a nice selection of restaurants & coffee shops. Portions of the Appalachian Trail are within a 30-40 min drive.

host Profile

Hosted By RayMimHeisey

Age:

65+

Ray & I are first and foremost servants of our Lord Jesus Christ. That may seem odd to you to put in an "about us" post, but it is pivotal in who we are. We love to share the life and resources that God has given us, and are glad you can make use of this place to stop over on your travels. Ray has taken a part time job after retirement, and I spend time caring for flower beds, vegetable gardens and grandchildrenšŸ˜Š. We have 4 adult children and grandchildren who we are very proud of, and we spend time with them as we can. We are not usually recreational RVers (there always seems to be too much to do here at home and with our families in the summer) but we do use our Camper when we head to warmer climes in the winter to volunteer with Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS). We are glad you could stop and visit with us, however briefly. If there are flowers blooming, perhaps I can pick a bouquet for you to take with you. Blessings to you and safety as you travel. Ray and Mim

    Easy access, 15 amp, water. Dump station available at the camp across the street. Ray is super nice and helpful. Long horn cattle, a horse, and a beautiful swan swiming in a spring fed pond.

    Beautiful property right off a main road. I struggled a bit getting into the site but thatā€™s more about my backing skills! Site was level with power and water (!) and hosts were very welcoming. I visited Johnstown and the Flight 93 Memorial and then had a quiet relaxing stay.
