Tom and Barbara were the most welcoming hosts I have ever met. First of all, the place is large and fenced, which made my dogs happy. But above all, they invited me to chat in their living room. Not only did they listen with great attention, they were immensely generous in advising me on my travel plans, Tom took the time on several occasions to answer with consideration to my questions sent by email. His advices were very useful and contributed to the success of my trip. I am very grateful to them.

Tom and Barbara provided a lovely place for an overnight stay. My T-Mobile hotspot worked great, and I got much work done. I slept like a baby. At 9 a.m., it was 33 degrees, so I requested an extra hour to leave, and they said yes. Thank you, Tom and Barbara!

Tom and Barbara were very friendly and accommodating. When arriving I was having an issue with the AC and they kindly allowed me to charge for the night. The day I arrived it was very hot. They offered their shade tree to cool off with my dog (definitely saved the day). We had great conversation and I enjoyed getting to know them. Tom went out of his way to provide directions and tips for visiting Crater Lake and the Natural Bridge, which was very helpful saved me a lot of time in researching. Truly great people who made my stay enjoyable. Would definitely recommend.

This was an ideal spot to park overnight and relax. Tom and Barbara were delightful hosts, ensuring we had what we needed and were very accommodating. The parking spot for our B class van was perfect. Our spot was level and next to their house, but we had privacy. We felt very safe. Their backyard was peaceful and if you're up for some great conversation, they will oblige. Great folks, excellent space. It felt rural but was right in town not far from I-5. Highly recommend!
