Curious about vanlife? Come spend a weekend down by the river and test it out.

You'll be staying in one of our fully decked out camper vans, with access to our deck, our dock, and a crackling fire pit just steps away.

*LOCATION*

We're located in outdoorsy South Jersey, and while our property is only 1 acre, we're surrounded by trails, trees, and right on a National Wild and Scenic River. The Great Egg Harbor River is one of the best birding spots in the U.S., and is fantastic for kayaking, river tubing, and fishing. You'll be able to use our rope swing, star-gaze while laying on the 6-person hammock, and cook on the fire pit. We're also walking distance from miles and miles of hiking, mountain biking, ATV-ing, and horseback riding trails for adventurous afternoons.

While our place has the feel of a treehouse in the woods, we do have two neighbors nearby, one of which can be seen from the dock and one from the driveway, where the van is parked. For courtesy, there are quiet hours in place (11pm-7am on weekends & 10pm-7am on weekdays). As conscious vanlifers, we expect you to pack-out everything you brought with you or produced while you were here, and to treat the neighborhood and our home with love and respect.

*VANLIFE EXPERIENCE*

For the full Vanlife Experience take a look at some of our add-ons, which include nights off-site at a local organic farm, build lessons, and test drives. We've spent 4+ years living in and converting camper vans, and we're excited to share our knowledge with you. Learn first-hand about everyday vanlife tasks like refilling water, sanitizing water lines, taking care of your waste, troubleshooting diesel heaters, managing electrical consumption, and finding spots to spend the night. This experience helps you take that next step and find out if vanlife is for you -- before you spend thousands of dollars on your own build.

*ACCOMMODATIONS*

You'll be staying in a fully decked out campervan, which includes 1 full size and 1 queen bed, a closet, a toilet, an outdoor shower, a sink with running water, a small fridge and freezer, a two-burner stove, and an overhead fan to keep you cool. Basic cookware, 4 plates and utensils are provided, but you must bring your own sheets, blankets, pillows, and/or sleeping bags. The top bed is closest to a Full, and the bottom bed is closest to a Queen. If you have difficulty lifting heavy things or jumping, we recommend you use the bottom bed. 

We'll provide cleaning supplies so you can clean the firepit, dishes and campervan to the state you found it in.  If you leave without without cleaning properly or packing out your waste, an additional cleaning fee will apply at our discretion.
