We live on a dead end street in a relatively quiet suburban neighborhood. RV parking would be located on paved driveway. Do you like beer? We are about 1 1/4 miles walking/driving distance from downtown where there are lots of breweries, restaurants, and specialty shops. Like biking? The Schuylkill River Trail passes through Phoenixville and continues 25 miles east to Philadelphia (mostly paved). The Perkiomen Trail is also nearby and follows along the Perkiomen creek for 20+ miles (mostly gravel). If road riding is your thing, Chester County has some of the best road cycling roads in eastern Pennsylvania. Like to kayak? Kayak rentals are available on the Schuylkill canal, about 3 miles away. Enjoy history? We are located 15 minutes from Valley Forge National Historical Park. How about hiking? There are numerous hiking areas within 15 minutes of our home, too numerous to mention. Suggested Local Attractions:Valley Forge National Historical Park, Schuylkill Heritage Center, Lancaster County farms and markets, Schuylkill River Trail, Perkiomen Trail, Philadelphia (City of Brotherly Love) Note: 15amp electric is available, however this is not adequate to power an AC unit.

    Spent a quiet night here. We filled up our water when we arrived. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Planet fitness close by as well.

    Pat welcomed us and right away we had a connection. We shared traveling experiences and she proposed us few local attractions; which we followed to the "T". We missed meeting Robert as he was on his own RV outing. Maybe next time. Thanks Pat for your attentions.

    Quiet neighborhood and very convenient to downtown. Very friendly and helpful host. We are new to RVing and host Robert provided us with some great tips/information. Minor leveling required for our RV. A good, safe neighborhood to walk our dog on a leash. We would recommend this host and hope to return on our next trip to PA.

    Great hosts with excellent communication, warmth and hospitality. Swapped many experiences from our travels and rigs. Located in quiet residential neighborhood. Hope our paths cross again; in Phoenixville or on the road!

    A quiet spot yet central to everything this rich and varied region has to offer, with thoughtful, easygoing hosts who made it a pleasure to stay with them not once but twice!
