The inn is a large, white house with a white picket fence in front. There is no sign, but we have a blue door. Please come around to the back door to inquire or check-in. We have lots of parking space and there are some tricky street parking regulations.

Please, under no circumstances, bother the people in the large yellow Victorian at the corner of Hamilton Ave. and Grand St.

In icy weather, please follow these directions once you arrive at the Route 9A/129 exit:
Turn East (away from the Hudson River), and go straight through the first traffic light. Turn left at the next traffic light (CVS across the street), onto Route 129/Maple Ave. Proceed to the traffic light and turn left onto Old Post Rd. At next traffic light, turn left onto Grand St. Stay left on Grand St., then make your first right onto Hamilton Ave. The inn is on Van Wyck St, right where Hamilton Ave. ends, so that if you didn't stop on Hamilton Ave., you'd drive straight into our living room. Please proceed down the driveway located just to the left of the house, and come to the back door off of the back porch to check in.
