Other Things to Note
Directions - coming through Binghamton on Route 81. So, you exit Rte. 81 at Whitney Point. Then follow signage to Route 79 Ithaca. As you approach Ithaca, look for Six Mile Creek Winery and turn right at blinking light, Pine Tree Rd. (about half a mile from WInery). Take that road past traffic light to blinking light (rte 366, Dryden Rd.) ad turn right. Go to next traffic light and turn left (Caldwell Rd.). take that road to one lane bridge and turn right after crossing bridge (Warren Rd.) Turn left on Roat Rd. and left again on Blackstone. Go to dead end sign. Our mail box (202) is on left but you have to turn right onto gravel driveway past the last visible house on right.
