House Rules

I know this seems like a lot of rules. But we have been having problems. I love hosting and I am trying real hard to make it work. So w. that being said......🐾 Kids & Dogs..❤️Always keep your dog on a leash. Please don’t walk your pets in our immediate yard.😉 Our dog Charlie barks & freaks out 😊…Pick up poop please, you can toss it in the weeds way out in the back only. Yes to off leash sometimes!! near your campsite if no one else is here..your discretion because their is wildlife here..Inspect the area.. if your dog digs holes, ask for tools to fix the holes.. 🐕👨‍👦*Kids & dogs we love them...should not wonder too far from their campsite out of their parents view due to wildlife..They should play in front of your camper and not your neighbors. People rest here.. . Stay on Mowed trails/field areas only when walking. *No smoking within 800’ of our house. 🛑No generators! Please dont ask..No grilling or fire pits in the shed. ⭐ 🚶‍♀️Text me and I will send a trail/walker’s map if needed. *🐌 🚙We would appreciate it if you would drive slow on the private roads leading to our home. You should not drive faster than a fast pace walk.. * Be Careful not to flip the breaker, it is 30 amp only. Do not overload it…Only one camper should be using the electric @ the shed at one time. *Please, clean up your campsite before you go, Do not sweep out your camper or vehicle out onto the ground.. leave nothing behind...... * No loud vehicles. If you have a muffler problem etc please don't request a stay. *Please use YOUR facilities if you need to go to the bathroom, and not outside. *No outside guests are permitted without permission from the host.. *Please don't leave a dog in your camper that barks while you're gone if there are other campers here. If you are the only one staying here its not a problem.. We appreciate it and thank you⭐for understanding..

Grass and packed sand... You will travel on 1 mile of dirt/gravel packed road to reach our home. ½ mile County maintained & ½ mile of private rd..Some minor bumps.. We pull our Travel Trailer in and out just fine, as well as our past BW/HH guests... Plenty of room to maneuver. Sites are not perfectly level, but level enough :)

    Great spot, just a bit too noisy. The neighbors have 20 dogs that love outside and all bark at the same time. There are literally 60 trains per day that go by one mile away and blows it's whistle each time. Besides that, it was a nice stay. HOST RESPONSE: Thank you for your review. First, we ask guests not to arrive after dark due to our schedule, but some do, and so far no one has had any issues arriving at night...Our description on our ad does state that we are rural. There are lots of photos that show that. A complete description tells the guest what to expect. We are six miles from town so we are not that far out. We provide very good directions, and the GPS does bring you most of the way. We have had over 241 guests since Oct 2021 and a large percentage of guests love it here.
