We just signed up for Harvest Hosts.  We are excited to incorporate it into some of our plans and my wife and I actually plan to try it out on a one night get away type trip in the next few weeks.  You gain access to the specifics of the locations once you sign up.  We learned that our favorite location to hike (Ammonusuc Ravine Trail, Mt. Washington, NH) is a Harvest Host site as the trail head is right next to the Cog Railway which has a museum/gift shop associated with HH.  This is awesome as we can now spend a day hiking without the drive to a campground.

So we stayed at Leyden Farms Winery in West Greenwich, RI a week ago today (May 6, 2017).  This location is only about 30 minutes from our house but it was a nice way to practice boondocking and learn about our trailer.

First, though close, this place felt far away.  It is a beautiful location, the wine was great, the staff was accommodating, and we flat out had a blast.  We were basically allowed to pick our spot so we chose a location next to their pond.  As an own known bonus at the time of parking, there was a fire ring right next to our spot.  We were not planning on this, nor did we have wood to burn ,but we would have been able to had we prepared.  Next time, we may grab some splits off our wood pile at home.  

Leyden closes at 5:00 which ended up being great because the place was quiet very early in the evening.  We arrived around 3:30 which allowed us time to park, explore the winery, do a tasting, meet the staff, and experience the winery prior to them shutting down for the night.  We felt very welcomed and learned that they get three to five Harvest Host stays a year which surprised me as this location is about 15miles from some beautiful Rhode Island coast and beaches on the Atlantic Ocean.  Leyden is also very close to an incredibly busy state park campground, Burlinggame.  I don’t know that I will be able to go to Burlinggame again knowing that Leyden farms is so close by.

 

Also, it rained a bit, which we didn’t mind at all.  The rain allowed for one of the nicest rainbows we have ever seen.  it was so enormous that I couldn’t capture the whole thing, and our trailer, in the same photo.

We look forward to staying at more Harvest Host sites this summer.  I’ll report back on our experiences.

 

Thanks,

We stayed at another Harvest Host location.  This time it was at the base of Mt. Washington in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  The Cog Railway is part of HH and they put us up for Memorial Day weekend in one of their out of the way lots.  Actually, they let us keep the trailer there for a night while we all went off and “Hut Camped” at one of the Appalachian Mountain Club Huts.  We had a beautiful spot for the trailer however and we had the place to ourselves when we stayed in the trailer on Sunday night.  It was an awesome trip. The photo shows the summit of Mt. Washington in the background (the highest peak in the Northeast).
