    Stayed 1 night in a 30ft travel trailer. Nice level driveway. Close to Grand Rapids. Host greeted me upon arrival and offered my 30 amp service. Had a wonderful stay

    We had a very peaceful stay of 2 nights under the over-100 year old spruce trees. Our arrival times kept changing but was not a problem for our host, we communicated well. it was a nice bonus to use their 30amp power outlet!!

    Thanks for helping me settle in with a warm smile, electricity, and an easy spot. This is a centennial farm and has majestic evergreens, so special.
