About
WE CAN ONLY ACCOMMODATE VANS/VAN-LIFERS.....This is because in Lake county, FL, a person cannot sleep in an RV overnight legally, so even though we are on 2 acres deemed agricultural, we can't even sleep in our own RV in our own yard overnight....the ordinance guy stopped by to tell us this when we had an RV with guests in the yard....But a van would be somewhat different....You could park in the driveway and vans are not as obvious that you are sleeping in it/more stealthy.... I know, ridiculous rules. Ugh...Makes us want to move just because of that one rule!!!! Anyways, So if you have a nice van and won't catch the ordinance guys eye, then you are Golden to stay here. We Love meeting you all and are so sad we have to limit the stays this way, but no choice....If you do plug in(we have 30 Amp or 15 Amp), a $5 donation is appreciated per night. The WiFi is not available in the yard, but the screened porch area has it. We do not have any spectacular water views, but you can walk down the road to see the water. Fenced area for pets; we do have a shih tzu who does not get along with other dogs, but is the sweetest, most gentle with humans.

We love Nomadic Lifestyles & Adventures Details: We have both traveled for work for a few decades, but are more stationary now, however still getting out in the RV when possible. We have a large enough property and would like to share with others to help them save money on travels and meet more nomads! Home Town: I’m originally from Moncton, NB Canada and hubby is from Maryland, but we are in Grand Island, FL now Skills or Expertise to Share: We know North America like the back of our hands so we have lots of travel knowledge.

House Rules
Have a good relaxing time! Common courtesy. If you want to be left alone or the opposite, just say the word; it's all good with us. We respect privacy and communication. We don’t want to bother neighbors, so unfortunately no generators.
Parking & Arrival
Access Road Conditions: You will just pull into our driveway. Easy peasy. We are at the corner of a somewhat busy country road and a very quiet side road, so there is road/traffic noise from vehicles stepping on it at stop sign. Annoying. I know I mentioned 1 night stay, but we could do more depending on the situation.... : ))
