    This location is perfect for getting around town or just chilling out and enjoying the garden area. It has full 30amp hookup’s. Host Roy was very nice even after my, normally friendly dachshund went after his puppy Ajax, on the first night. The morning I left we had a chance meeting in the alley way and my pup redeemed himself for his rude behavior. Will definitely try to book here again. Unfortunately the Mrs was on her own holiday and i didnt get the pleasure of meeting her. Maybe next time. Big thanks to the host Roy

    Sure was a pleasure meeting our host Roy and his quite and friendly puppy in training. Sorry to say we did not get to meet his wife as she was out of town. Our stay was in a quiet quint neighborhood on a level space of a grass covered driveway along the side of the house. 30amp. Electric and water available. We hope to visit again and stay a bit longer. A BIG THANK YOU to our host Roy

His gardens are beautifully kept and he even sent me off with an eggplant 🍆 peppers 🌶 and joy. we sat and talked on the back porch, he is also a Chinook owner. very nice place to stop for a day and visit with new friends.

    A great place to stay in Portsmouth. This is a in residential neighborhood on a side street. I backed the trailer down the driveway. Roy the host helped guide me keep the trailer straight. Electrical (30 amp) and water were available. He also has a dump station, which we didn't use. He helped me with my awning repair, loaning me his tools and step stool. The yard is beautiful, with flowers and a vegetable garden. We will definitely stay again!
