   Driving Directions

From the North and West
Head S on Rte. 7 in Vermont. Turn left on Rte. 103. After about 20 miles, turn left onto Rt. 100. Go about 3 ½ miles. As you drive, you will start to see lakes on your right. After about 2 ½ miles, you’ll pass a blue-gray sign with a spinning wheel on the left (it may say “Cool-Edge Collection”). Go about a half-mile farther. Turn left across from the Tyson Village Store (which has icicle lights hanging from the porch roof). Our driveway is framed by two large trees (one has the number 1785 nailed into it) and has a white fence to the left of it with a “VT Ski House For Rent” sign. The house is just before the Tiki Real Estate sign, which, confusingly, has the same number as our house painted on it. (She used to operate out of our house and never changed the sign.) If you reach Echo Lake Inn, you’ve gone slightly too far. The main door to the house is on the right side of the front porch. PARKING: Park nose in to the left inside the fence. There are also two spots OUTSIDE the fence, should you need more parking. The railroad ties mark the spots. PLEASE DO NOT MOVE THE RAILROAD TIES AND DO NOT DRIVE IN THE GRASS!

From North and East
Get on Rt. 91 south. Take exit 8, Rt. 131, toward VT-12 Ascutney/US-5 Windsor. Turn right onto 131. Go about 6 ½ miles, and turn left onto 131/106, and then right onto 131. Continue about 8 1/2f miles, and turn right onto Rt. 103. After you pass through the village of Ludlow, turn right when 100 heads north and 103 continues straight. Follow italicized directions above.

From Albany and Points West
Find Rt. 7 E toward Troy/Bennington. At the Vermont border, NY-7 becomes VT Rt. 9. Go about 4 more miles, into Bennington. Turn left onto US-7. Follow 7 N toward Manchester/Rutland. Go about 21 miles. Then take the VT-11/VT-30 ramp toward Historic VT-7A/Manchester Center/Manchester. At end of ramp, turn right onto VT-11. Go about 13 miles. Turn left onto VT-100. Follow north into Ludlow. At “T” intersection in Ludlow, turn left onto 100N/103W (the roads are together). Follow about two miles; turn right when 100 goes to the right and 103 keeps going straight. Follow italicized directions above.

From the East

From NYC and South
Take the Rt. 287 (Cross-Westchester Expressway) to Rt. 684 north, then Rt. 84 East. Follow to 91 north. Follow into Vermont. Take exit 6 toward VT-103/Rockingham/Rutland. At the end of the ramp, turn LEFT onto US-5, and then fork LEFT a short time later onto VT-103. Go about 22 miles, passing through the town of Chester (where Rt. 103 takes a 90-degree right turn – don’t miss it!), then Ludlow (where it becomes 100/103), and past Okemo ski area on left. Turn right when 100 heads north and 103 continues straight. Follow italicized directions above.

From 91 N

South On Rt. 100
If you choose a route that takes you south on Rt. 100, here’s how to find the house: It’s about 12 miles south of the intersection of Routes 100 and 4. After passing through the town of Plymouth continue approximately 6 miles. Get ready to turn when you see the Echo Lake Inn sign. You’ll pass a church on the right, then Tiki Real Estate. (On the left is Tyson Village Store.) Turn right into our driveway, which is framed by two large trees. There’s another driveway directly to the right of it that goes up a hill. Do NOT go there. Wrong house! There’s a white fence to the left of the trees that frame our driveway, with a sign that says, “VT Ski House for Rent.”) Parking info is above.
