We recently joined a program called Harvest Hosts which allows us to park overnight at vineyards and a few farms all over the country.

We stayed at our first vineyard last night in Jacksonville, OR. LongSword Vineyards located in a beautiful valley surrounded by majestic mountains.

It was so quiet and peaceful I wish we could have stayed a few nights. But the rules of the program are for one night only. These are not campsites and there are no services. We could hear the coyotes during the night. Wonderful.

Parasailers use Matt's field as a landing zone in the afternoons. They launch from a nearby mountain. We arrived back to the motorhome in time to see then rolling up their sails. We didn't time that one well at all.

It was a wonderful experience and we will definitely find another vineyard along our way to stay at. All for only $20 a year.

  1. Glad you posted about Harvest Hosts. I have been considering joining them. Do you get some type of directory or do you find all the locations online? Did you join online? Did you ask the winery if you could stay longer if you paid? Somewhere in our travels we stayed at a winery that had a few electric/water hook-ups for $10.


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
