  • Go 0.8 mile on Christian Lane/Chestnut Plain Road into Whately center.
  • Turn right at the Whately Inn onto Haydenville Rd.
  • Go 1.5 miles and watch for gray farm house and barn complex on your left (188 Haydenville Rd.)
  • Turn left into driveway before the farmhouse, across the street from a man-made drainage pond and the beginning of Masterson Road.  The driveway entrance is on Haydenville Rd. at the sign with a dancing couple and the words "Private Drive to 35 Westbrook Rd."

At first glance, the directions may seem complicated, but it’s really not that bad.  We’re about 6 minutes from Rt. 91 – if that helps.  Also, if you go around the sharp bend on Haydenville Rd. where Westbrook Rd. joins Haydenville Rd., you have gone too far. Turn around and try again, looking for our driveway on the right hand side.  Watch for our white sign with a dancing couple.  If lost, phone Richard or Flora at (413) 665-0484.
