Normal residential setting. You are welcome to park on the street in front of the house. One night stays only. Absolutely no more than two. This is a location to use if you need a night to stop while passing through. Nothing to do here except visit a little with us and go for a walk / bike ride on the trail system. Lake Lewisville is about 1.5 miles away via the trail system. Suggested Local Attractions: Groceries and beer/wine/liquor stores close by. Movie house is about 3 miles away. Great restaurants within 1-4 miles. The "Flower Mound" is the local geographical feature about 5 miles away. You can actually walk up on it and see 360 degrees across the blighted urban landscape.......used to be able to walk up on top and see prairie and the Cross Timbers Forest. Some remnants remain. Lake Lewisville is a huge man made lake that most people from states with natural lakes would call a mud hole, but we are proud of it since it is the source of our drinking water. The haunted old iron bridge at Old Alton is about 7 miles away. It crosses Hickory Creek and the very upper end of the Hickory Creek arm of Lake Lewisville. Good hiking trail starts there.

Pets must be on a leash and please pick up after them. Generators not okay. This is a neighborhood and neighbors may object. Electric hookup is 20 am, standard 15-20 receptacle. You will need an adapter for 30/50 amp to 20 amp This is a residential neighborhood, so please act accordingly. This is a place to park and rest for a night, not to camp. So, no setting up outdoor shelters, barbecues, etc. A couple of lawn chairs would be okay, but again, it would be in our front lawn. If you come in at night after 9pm, then hookups may be unavailable.

Residential street. Parking is "pull through" on the curb in front of the house. Electric hookup will require a 60' cord. We can help with a heavy duty extension cord if needed. You'll have to be the judge on whether the voltage drop will be too significant. For lights and low amp appliances, its fine. We have had guests use their A/C with the hookup.
Hosted By Scott_Noreen
6 Kids, 13 grandchildren, all out of the house and we are free to roam! Details: Scott is an Arborist and we own Tree Shepherds, a tree care company. Noreen is a master quilter and loves to talk about quilting with anyone interested. She can spot a quilt shop from 100 miles out. We raised six children, home schooled them all (well Noreen took the brunt of that), and Noreen retired from home teaching after 30 years. We are free to roam now as the kids are all out on their own and we are starting to turn the business over to the younger generation.

Wonderful stay in a delightful, quiet neighborhood north of D/FW with a variety of excellent resturants and shopping nearby. Hosts were extremely responsive, friendly, and accommodating. They offered a 20A connection for heat as the night was going to dip to freezing (although I didn't need it). Will definitely stay again when I need a midpoint stop in D/FW!

There was a really warm welcome by the hosts. The communication was great and the hosts told us many tips about Texas. The stay on street is fine und we highly recommend this stay for other boondockers.

Hosts were the absolute best approving our stay quickly and communicating with us prior to arrival. We just needed a place to park then head out to visit family. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to meet them in person but they were able to make us feel welcome anyway!
