The road immediately curves to the right, running parallel to the Highway. As the road curves to the left, the B&B driveway is on the RIGHT. The driveway loops so if you miss the first right, you can enter at the second right.

Park anywhere that doesn’t block the circular drive or blocks the garage doors.                Our New Road Sign!
