   Driving Directions

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.

Go 2.9 miles. As you drive, you will start to see lakes on your right. Unfortunately, there’s no street sign to Benson Point, so be on the watch when you pass a blue-gray sign with a spinning wheel on the left (it may say “Cool-Edge Collection). Next you’ll pass a gray house on the left with a huge stone chimney and a detached garage. Just after that, turn right at a wide-entrance dirt road. There’s a wooden pole with five red reflectors going up the side, and a sign that says “Seasonal House Rental.” If you reach the Tyson Village Store, you’ve gone a half a mile too far. The chalet is the first house on the right on Benson Point, just after a wooden sign that says simply, “The Lake House.” There are two entrances: one on the upstairs deck to the right, the other downstairs in the front.

Please DO NOT PARK in the grass in front of the house. There are five wooded parking spots clearly marked by railroad ties.


From the East
Get on 91 north (on the east side of Vermont), and take to exit 6 toward VT-103/Rockingham/Rutland. Turn LEFT onto US-5, then fork LEFT onto VT-103. Go about 22 miles, passing through the town of Chester (where route 103 takes a 90-degree right turn – don’t miss it!), then Ludlow, and past Okemo ski area on left (becomes 100/103). Turn right when 100 heads north and 103 continues straight. Follow italicized directions above.

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.
