David was such a lovely host! The area is fantastic, he was so warm and welcoming, and the spot is incredibly relaxing. He even gave us a handful of wonderful recommendations of places to visit in the are. I would highly recommend this little piece of heaven!

We had a wonderful stay! This site is in an excellent location, within walking distance to town and Look Park. The backyard site was well stocked with everything you'd need for a relaxing night out. David was so welcoming and helpful! We plan to return whenever we're in the area. Thanks David!

Our favorite HipCamp stay yet! David was so welcoming and the set up was perfect. Plenty of space, flat ground, a fire pit, access to an indoor bathroom. Couldn’t have asked for a better host or place to camp!

Great location, great communication, great amenities for a sweet little spot to economically visit the five college area. It was nice to be able to build a little fire to enjoy in the evening. Thank you, David!

David was extremely friendly and welcoming! Provided firewood for us which allowed us to have a fire 2 nights! We also were close to the hikes we wanted to do and breweries we wanted to try! Great place to stay, highly recommend :)
