County property, just on the edge of Portland Indiana. Property boasts a beautiful 1950's brick home with wrap around porch, and 2 restored historic red barns on about 4 acres. No immediate neighbors - property is surrounded by farm fields on 3 sides. Lots of open, grassy space at the back of the lot to walk and play with your dog. Easy access off of State Highway 67, with a circle drive on the property to make it easy to get in & out of. Highway location makes for corresponding road noise, but otherwise the the location is peaceful. One 30 amp electric plug available. A donation you feel is appropriate based on your usage level of water and power is requested. If you want to park without anything from me, always no charge. When I'm home I can fill your water tanks with softened water from the house (but not stay connected), or provide you with a hook up to a connection to potable well water. There is one walnut tree along the driveway you will need to drive under. I try to keep it trimmed up to get my class C through without branches hitting, but if your rig is abnormally tall you may need to drive around the tree through the grass, which can be done as long as the ground is dry. If you are concerned, give me a heads up & I'll double check the trimming (really only a spring growth issue) and let you know the ground condition. Room to park 2 RVs plus cars, if needed. Might be a tight for for two class A's depending on how each parks, but if you work together there's space. There is WiFi in the house, it may not be strong where you'll be parked, but it is available on the property. Walmart is less than a mile away to stock up. Laundry mat is right up the road too. Suggested Local Attractions:On weekends, visit my winery: Tipsy Glass Winery in Bryant, IN! 15 mins to the north of Portland. New microbrew in Portland: Good-Rich Brewery Lots of events throughout the year at the Jay County Fairgrounds: Vintage Motorbike Show, Jay County Fair, Shutterbug Conference, World's Largest Gas Tractor & Engine Show, Vintage Military Vehicle Show, Hunting/Fishing Expo, or an auction about every weekend. There are many antique stores in the area, and a growing number of Women's clothing boutique stores in Portland and nearby Fort Recovery, OH. Arts Place in Portland has events throughout the year. Kids will enjoy the nearly brand new Portland City Waterpark in the summer.

House Rules

Location

Access Road Conditions: Access is off of a state highway. Driveway is flat, gravel & concrete and leads up to the house and a large gravel circle drive in front of 2 large out buildings. Years ago the property used to be a farm, so there is space to navigate larger vehicles. The former property owners owned a 40' class A motorhome that was kept at the property. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: I have a large circle driveway and spaces in front of 2 large out buildings to park in front of. All gravel, off-road.

Wine & Bulldogs at the edge of a small town Details: I just started RV traveling in 2021. I travel mainly to attend AKC dog shows with my bulldogs.

If I'm not attending dog shows, I am running my small winery, The Tipsy Glass Winery, in Bryant, IN on weekends. Home Town: Portland, Indiana Favorite Boondocking Locations: Just starting out.

    Very pleasant and quiet stay. Utilized the 30A power. Great rural setting to lots of space to walk our dog. Host also owns / operates a small winery not far away. Well worth the time to visit. Thanks for the hospitality!!!!!

    My wife and I stayed 2 nights at The Red Brick Winehaus while we attended the neighboring Berne Swiss Days. It was a very pleasant stay. We enjoyed meeting our host who was very welcoming. We were offered a 30 amp hookup which we declined the first night but was grateful to have it when our refrigerator developed propane issues the second night. We enjoyed the two kittens and a walk in the open field near by. It is a convenient location with town less than 2 miles away. We would definitely consider a return visit in the future.

    Second visit in 12 months. Gave our host a last minute request to stay, and within moments got an approval. Very comfortable and pleasant stopover. We hope to stop again and spend more time exploring the area and winery. We couldn't ask for a nicer host. Thank you again for a wonderful stay!

    Host was great with communication. I ran into very bad weather and could not be safely on the road and had to cancel one night, but made it for next night. Nice level site with electric. Would definitely go back.

    This is our second visit this season. A beautiful rural setting. We arrived and left in rain so we kept dry in our RV. Host was accommodating even though we didn't visit with her this time. Recommend as it is near Wal-mart. We also heard about Ickes RV Supply in Montpelier. Too rainy a day for us to check out. They have RV parts and supplies. Look it up if you have need.
