Directions to Carmel Cottage & Loft
We are just off VT Route 100 between Route 58 in Lowell and Route 101 in Troy.
Driving from points south, go north on I-91, take Exit 26 at Orleans and follow VT Route 58 west over Lowell Mountain and down into the village of Lowell where 58 meets 100. Go right (north) on 100. Drive north on 100 for 3.4 miles and see the Westfield Benedictine Monastery set back on the right.
From their driveway drive 2.6 more miles north and see Degre Auction House on the right.
Across from Degre's is our private road (Carmel Rd.). It does not look like much, so don't miss it.
If you go too far, you will see Berry Creek Farm (strawberries) on the left. Less than a quarter mile from here is the Westfield General Store on the left (with post office behind) and Beloin's Brookside Hardware on the right.
Drive up Carmel Rd and see our “Carmel Cottage” sign on a 6” x 6” post (less than a quarter mile from Route 100). Go right on the next driveway which leads to both Carmel Cottage (#260) and our big house (#258). Carmel Loft is the 3rd level of our house. To check in, enter the door (of the big house #258) facing the driveway and holler up the stairs across from the pool table.
Please be patient as Jim is disabled and may take a couple of minutes to answer the door.
From points north, exit at St. Albans and follow VT Route 105 east to Route 118 in East Berkshire. Go right on 118 all the way through Montgomery Town into Montgomery Center. See Sylvester's Market on the left. Go left on Route 242 up Jay Peak mountain and see the Jay Peak entrance on the left. Stay on 242 down the other side of the mountain into Jay village 4-corners, going right after the Jay Country Store onto North Hill Rd. Drive down North Hill Rd to the end at VT Route 100 in Westfield. Go right for about a half mile and see Degre Auction House on the left. Carmel Rd is directly across from Degre's on the right. Then follow directions as above.

Drive back down Carmel Rd to Route 100 and go left. About a half mile up see North Hill Rd on the left. Go left here and drive a few miles to the 4-corners in Jay village (Jct. Route 242). Go left on 242 up the mountain several miles and see the Jay Peak entrance on the right. If you keep driving on 242, you will descend into the village of Montgomery Center.
