Please do not make a request to stay unless you have fully read our parking information and reviewed at all 4 photos. We live on a dead end street that is composed mainly of Victorian Era Homes. We are two houses away from a major county road so there will be some very light road noise at night. You are welcome to use the fire pit and enjoy the back yard areas. We do have two dogs so please close the gates behind you. If you need to top up with water please let us know and we can help you access a water hookup. We have an in-ground pool so small children can never be left unattended. Suggested Local Attractions:We are located in a charming village just outside of NYC. There is a direct train into midtown Manhattan a mile from our home. There is parking at the train station and the train is a direct 25 minute trip to Penn Station, NYC.

Location

Please do not make a request to stay unless you have fully read our description and viewed all 4 photos. We live in a historic Victorian era home with a large wrap around porch. The porch roof extends over the driveway and the driveway leads to our rear carriage house. There are pillars on either side that you would need to be able to back through. The two set of pillars are 100 inches apart so we can only accommodate rather narrow RV’s and are unable to accommodate any trailers or tow vehicles. Our set up is best for small (under 10 foot tall) truck campers or class B vans. See photos for details on where you should park as we need to accommodate four vehicles in front of our carriage house (we park four cars side by side directly in front of the carriage house). You would need to park in the spot that is second from the right (see yellow arrow/box) - Just to the right of the center pole. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: We can not accommodate travel trailers or tow vehicles. You must be able to enter and exit pulling through two sets of pillars along a long narrow driveway. Please see photos for further explanation. Backing up does require some skill not to hit the pillars. Please go slow and exercise care.

We are quiet and will always strive to leave a site area neat, tidy and better than we found it!

    Jen is a welcoming, informative, and easy host at her gorgeous turn of the century mansion. She shred stories of her own RV adventures as I hooked up to electric and water. One caveat is the gravel spot is down a narrow driveway, under a portico, on driveway / street curb that may bottom out some rigs. Cozy, convenient, and may be back again.

    Wonderful, accommodating hosts. Incredibly convenient to so much and a perfect spot for our camper van. Highly recommend for those with smaller campers!
