Apryl and her husband John were very welcoming. Unfortunately I came really late and left early and would have loved to have a beer with them to get to know them better, they seemed like they would have a lot of good stories to tell. Leonardville is also an interesting place. It has a population of about 450 people and I wish I had time to look around a bit and meet people but I was just passing through on my way east.
The basement accommodations were a bit sparse, a mattress with plenty of blankets, and an outlet to charge your stuff. I'm giving it 5 stars because it's exactly what Apryl said it would be and it was fine for this travelers tired bones. There's also a bathroom and shower upstairs with nice hot water, and other house accommodations like a washing machine and dryer and kitchen. I'm sure Apryl and John wouldn't mind sharing should you have a longer stay.
John in particular was very gracious. He and Apryl are army / air force. John gave me a flag patch from his uniform that he wore in Afghan and Iraq and an army glow stick to use on my motorcycle should it ever break down. He also graciously cooked me up some mean eggs with lemonade before I departed on my trip the next morning.
One additional note, I guess John and Apryl own pitbulls, but I didn't see or hear them the entire time I was there.
All in all good folk and a decent stay.
April was an awesome guest who stayed at my house for a few days with her 2 dogs. She was easy-going, very considerate, clean and tidy. I'd recommend April as a wonderful guest to any other host.
April and John came to stay only a short time here with me, but they were exceptionally sweet, polite, and helpful in the 12 hour stayover on the road to his home in SC. They needed to bring service dogs into the space, and while I initially had concerns, they were very responsible and respectful and we were able to communicate and find a compromise that included outside play time for the pets. All was well, and they got the good sleep they needed for such a long drive. They are "good people" and I would welcome them to my home again.
