We are located just off the New York I-87 Northway, between Albany and Montreal.

It is absolutely impossible to find easier directions to anywhere. So, here goes…


Coming North or South on I-87 in the Adirondack Park, take Exit 28 and head East towards Ticonderoga (this is Route 74).

We are the first house on the left, 1 mile from the I-87.  You can't miss it!
