Harvest Hosts - Latest Quality Issues

I have had very little luck searching for Hosts. App continually freezes or doesn't respond. I'm probably going to cancel despite one very excellent stay. Too much trouble.

Service is great but app needs work. In addition to many functions simply not working or so non-intuitive they defy logic, the map feature icon sizing leaves much to be desired. Map zooming and navigation is cumbersome often ends up zooming way too far in or out to another continent. Making and managing lists does not work at all, saving trips function has no exit or save capability and deleting from lists (favorites etc) cannot be done. Come on guys - great service should have a great app!!!

Great concept but poor execution in the age of COVID
We love this concept and when we paid for the membership last summer, we were ecstatic to try it out. Sadly, we have never been able to. We have tried nearly a dozen times (each time a different host) to reserve a night stay, and each time we have been unsuccessful. A couple of hosts said they had no availability for the foreseeable future, and the other host we contacted simply did not return our calls or respond at all. I understand, COVID made things more difficult for awhile, but then why charge people for a membership that they cannot use? I had a membership with a gym when the pandemic started and they put it on hold, I had a membership with a coffee roaster and when their factory had to shut down during COVID they put my membership on hold... but not Harvest Hosts. When I contacted their customer support they did not offer anything. They didn't acknowledge any of our experiences or even mention them in their response. They only said they had taken us off of automatic renewal and would not be billed again. Disappointing is an understatement. But I am giving 2 stars because the creative concept is a great idea, if it actually worked.

The icons on the map are way too big making it hard to select a location. The icons are not resized when zooming on the map! The app does not support landscape device orientation. You can get directions on a map, but you can't just open a map of the location, you have to copy and paste the address into your map app. Frustrating!

We've stayed at 2 places, tried to book 3. One apparently left Harvest Host as while we were trying to book. That was a very strange experience. But the 2 places that acted legit, were in fact legit and we had the best time. Our Entegra is coming home in a couple days after warranty work by Ford. Can't wait to get back to Harvest Host stays! They were great!

Crashing on iPad
Not a bad app but crashing on iPad. Easily reproducible. Tap on details table view should be delayed to make sure user isn't scrolling. Currently it is too quick to select an item in the table when the user is just trying to scroll.

Must book in advance
Harvest Host was advertised as a way to stay at unique and safe locations while maintaining a style of roaming freedom that is part of the appeal of RV Camping. However, it seems due to its growing popularity, it's pretty much impossible to book same-day stays through Harvest Host anymore. Most sites were booked out for a month at least! We paid the annual subscription and attempted to use the app along a drive, but after calling every host within a specific radius in California, no one has availability. Some hosts seemed apologetic about it while others seemed exasperated at the stress load of managing RV hosting. We ended up finding 1 host about 1 1/2 hrs out of the way, so we were able to experience at least 1 host site but for the price and promise, we were expecting a different travel experience buying into the Harvest Host subscription. I'd like to think this is just growing pains for Harvest Host and that eventually we can go back to easily booking same night stays. But most likely, given the way campsites book out months in advance in California, Harvest Host will likely end up going the same route and be an exclusive book-in-advance-only system. Wish I could take back my annual subscription purchase. Not sure we'll ever be able to use this again.

I find it frustrating that I cannot get a simple list so I can search for places along a specific route. So far I am not sure Harvest Hosts will be of any use to me. I love the idea, but so far I am not sure.
Harvest Hosts - Product Description
Are you looking for new opportunities to explore and enjoy the RVing lifestyle?

Harvest Hosts offers unique RV camping at 1900+ wineries, breweries, farms, museums, golf courses and unique attractions that invite RVers to visit and stay overnight for free. 

Instead of a box store parking lot, make memories with a unique RV experience!  Our membership is a special opportunity to meet amazing entrepreneurs, enjoy delicious wine tastings, peek inside working farms, and behold awesome museum exhibits. 

To participate, you need a qualified self-contained RV, as Host locations do not provide any hookups or services such as bathrooms. No tent-trailers, outdoor kitchens or tents of any kind are allowed. 

Harvest Hosts encourages all RV Members to support local economies by making purchases from their Hosts to thank them for their hospitality. When considering how much to spend at a Host location, please be generous and keep in mind your campground fee savings.  Most of these purchases will be things you probably already buy; produce at the farm, wine at the vineyard, and entrance to a unique attraction.
