Directions

To the Farm House and Barn Venue

From 81 North: Exit 211 (Lenox) – NOT LENOXVILLE. Turn left off the ramp. Go to the blinking light and take a right on to 92. You will see a Pump & Pantry there – you may want to get gas if you are running low. Follow 92 until Gelatt. On the right hand side you will see American Car Care Center/Burman’s Collision Center. (There is about 15 minutes of driving from 81 to this turn. Before the turn, you will see Gibson Grange on the left)

Take the right immediately after the Collision Center – it has a blue tin roof. Follow that road for about 1/4 mile and take the first right on to the first paved road. You will see a sign that says Fiddle Lake 2 miles. (It’s actually more than two miles though I think.)

Follow this road all the way up the long hill. When you reach the top, there is a fork in the road. Stay to the left/straight. Keep going a little ways and you will see the lake cottages on the right. Continue past the lake and pass East Shore Drive dirt road on the right. We are the next farm on the left. There’s a sign down by the road and the house is set back.

Park in the driveway and come to the front door.

You will pass Elk Meadows on your right. If you pass Stone Bridge on the right, you went the wrong direction. Continue past Elk Meadows to the four way stop sign at Dimock Corners. Go straight through the stop sign. Continue on this road. Pass the sign that says Camp Chen-A-Wanda on the right. Take a right on to Fiddle Lake Road when you get to the end at the stop sign.

Directions from the Rails to Trails:
Get off the D&H Trail at Burnwood. Take Fiddle Lake Road west – the opposite direction from the yellow house. Follow this for less than a mile and the farm will be on the right. (If you get to the lake, you went too far.) There’s a sign down by the road and the house is set back.

You may park your bicycle under the carport and come to the front door. Repairs and bicycle tune ups can be done in the barn. We are 15 miles from The New Milford Bike Shop. Transportation can be arranged.
