Sarah and Dan have an incredible family and made us feel a part of something special! We were greeted with warmth and kindness, given options for location, and offered electric and water to fill our tank. We had a wonderful stay and would love to stay with them again. Our stay was quiet and peaceful while attending Great Lakes Naval Recruit graduation

Sarah came right out and greeted us as soon as we pulled into her driveway. very nice and accommodating. We didn't spend much time there, as we took off for most of the day, but at time it was very quiet and we slept well.

Google maps is confused about where Sarah's Place is. It's south of 9th Street, not north. Sarah was immediately responsive to our confusion and cleared it up for us. They have a nice smooth driveway that only needed a bit of leveling due to the slide on one side. The road is fairly busy during the day but when we stopped traffic to back in, it was all smiles and waves from the drivers. Sarah's family is an active and friendly group. Sarah even warned us that a neighbor across the street was going to have a loud party so we could reconsider. Yes it was loud up to 12:30am, but we used to throw those kinds of parties too, so no complaints from us. We stayed two nights and used their electricity and a few gallons of water so we paid $20 for the kindness. I recommend a stay there anytime!
