US APPROACH FROM WEST, SOUTH
Exit Vermont Interstate 89 at 104 East (St. Albans). Turn right off 104E onto 105 East. Progress through Sheldon Springs, Enosburg Falls (Hannaford’s is your last source of liquor supplies before entering Canada and costs much less than in Canada), and Richford. Legal amounts per adult when crossing the border: 24 beer or 2 bottles of wine @750 mls. or 1 bottle of spirits, 40 oz. Once in Canada you are treated as a Canadian (no more liquor can be brought back into Canada if we cross the border on a day trip) for the duration of your stay. In Richford, stay on 105E (you must turn Right at the big, red brick church) then turn onto 105A and continue two miles to Canadian border. We are located approximately 3 miles straight ahead from the border in Glen Sutton. Our Lodge is the second building on the right hand side as you enter the village proper (large wraparound porch, white columns, red door, stone wall out front). Next door is the former Catholic Church, now a private home. You may park your car in the crushed stone area facing the main road or in the evergreen grove across the street from the Lodge. Side by side parking would be most appreciated.
