I just signed up for the lifetime membership. I figure if I only use it a few times a year it's worth that. The wine may get expensive though if I know my wife:-)

Yes it will... We signed up for the lifetime membership also, but have only used it once. We joined the wine club at the Harvest Host we stayed at and will be getting out first shipment of wine within the next couple of days.

Well, we signed up the other day and are staying at our first Harvest Host - Blue Heron Cheese in Tillamook, Oregon. View is great, people are nice, and we enjoyed the wine and brie in the store. Definitely worth it! We have another one scheduled next week in California, looking forward to it.

Spent the eclipse there. A great place. You will find many more. Chuck

That's the recommendation story I was waiting to hear. I know it's possible to have individual successes, but it's nice to know it can be a dependable regular destination.

One of the biggest issues I'm having with the hosts is that you only get one night and you generally need to arrive early. This means a short day travelling and not much time to see an area. Due to this, we don't get to use the program as much as we'd like.

We used Harvest Hosts sites as intermediate stops between destinations, and not as an alternative to a campground. These were all places we only wanted to stop overnight. The offerings by the harvest hosts were just bonus'. If you need multiple days and hook ups, you need a campground, not a Harvest Host site. There is no comparison to a Harvest Host over a Walmart parking lot or truck stop. Chuck

I'm not sure why arrival time is an issue. Harvest Hosts only ask that you arrive before their closing time. We have arrived at 9AM and at 6PM. It simply means good planning for each stop. Not something we have ever found hard to do. Once again, if you need to find a place where you can arrive in the middle of the night, Harvest Host is probably not for you. Neither are many campgrounds without reservations. Chuck

We LOVE Harvest Hosts. We joined in July and have gone to about a dozen different places. By far the best feature we found were the hosts themselves. All Have been friendly, generous, and will treat you like family. Never had a bad experience. Never felt obligated to buy anything even though we do usually. It's fun thing to go to really out of the way places because you get to talk to the hosts and find out things you wouldn't learn at a campground. We are so glad we joined.

Arrival time is an issue if you hit unexpected traffic, have a long trip planned, travel with kids (talk about unplanned stops!), have an unexpected mechanical issue, etc. Some people even like to drive until <gasp!> 7PM!

In any case, I'm just pointing out that it doesn't work for all people. I've been a lifetime member for over 3 years and we don't get to use it as often as we'd like for the reasons mentioned above. When it works, it's great. If you want to plan your trip around using them, it can work OK assuming the hosts are close enough together. If you travel long distances and don't have the luxury or desire of taking a lot of days to do it, or you like to investigate an area for more than a few hours, then it might not be for you.
