Harvest Host Membership

We discovered this membership while traveling in Idaho. We stooped at a vineyard for wine tasting abd tour. The owner asked if we were members of Harvest Host. As we discovered, members stay in site in their RV's for free. There are hundreds of locations around the US. The locations include vineyards and farms. We joined online and are planning a long trip building in stays at vineyards and some farms. Thought I would pass this on to anyone who has an interest.

We love wine so we are very excited about on site stays for wine tasting. The site is at http://harvesthost.com

We've been looking at this, but we like to stay at places for several days at a time. I think the places on HH are usually for one night only.

From what I've heard from the Wynn's you can some times stay more than one day. Depends on if another RV is on the way. For the $40 or so, sounds like a cheap way to find cool places, people, and stuff they sell 😜

re Harvard Host

You are right. The stay is generally one night but talking to the vineyard and looking on the site, the host may grant additional night stays. There are some suggestions for how to do it. Some of the stays offer an opportunity to participate in the host's lifestyle. At the vineyard we stopped at I was rewarded with the opportunity to learn about the operation in a one-one setting. I got to pick grapes for the riesling, which they were harvesting. Thena walk through of the entire process ...crushing, etc.. It was quite the education.

That definitely sounds cool and makes it more interesting. I don't drink, but find the process interesting and always buy wine for my friends. The price is good - even one free night is worth the cost.

We joined them two years ago before hitting the road for a 4 month, 8300 mile trip. Unfortunately, we then put the idea on a back shelf and never actually used them. It does sound like a cool way to go though and DW said the people she spoke with at HH were very nice and helpful.

I have visited a lot of wineries over the last 5 years. Some in the east (VA and NY) and Oregon (some in the Paso Robles area in CA as well); in these I'd be concerned about tree overhang and rubbing the coach "in the wrong way". Visiting several Texas wineries, those that may be ID'd in the membership would be no problem from that perspective. My view though is that many wineries would not be accessible, either due to parking lot size or trees on the way in...OTOH, we tend to like smaller wineries on the backroads. JMHO
