Please don't be scared off by these directions - we just like to cover all the bases! And for those of you familiar with North Conway, we're only one town south (about 15 minutes). See you soon!
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is best to follow the directions below. If you're a fan of your vehicle's navigation system or one of the online map sites, please compare our directions with those. There are some roads here in New Hampshire that might not be passable during certain times of the year - so print these directions out and bring them with you just in case!
If you would still like to use your navigation system, the following addresses may or may not be recognized:
2356 Eaton Road, Eaton Center, NH 03832
1 Glines Hill Road, Eaton Center, NH 03832
Note: The town is officially called "Eaton", but we are within a smaller village called "Eaton Center" - also, our mail gets filtered through the nearby town of Madison, so sometimes that town shows up as well... welcome to the North Country!
Heading north: Follow Rt.16N to Rt.25 in Ossipee (the sign reads "Ctr. Ossipee / Portland, ME") - about 45 minutes. Turn right onto Rt.25 and follow for 5 miles to the intersection of Rt.153 in Effingham Falls. Turn left onto Rt.153 and you'll reach the Inn at Crystal Lake in 9 miles, just past the "Little White Church". Note: Do not get off Rt.16 prematurely - only get on Rt.153 from Rt.25 in Effingham Falls.
Heading south: Follow Rt.16S to the traffic light intersection at the beginning of Conway Village (an Irving gas station will be on the left). Take a right, then an immediate left onto Rt.153, and follow it for 5.8 miles to the Inn at Crystal Lake. Another option (to avoid Rt.16 traffic!) is to take a right on River Rd. just before entering N. Conway. Cross three bridges and take the first left onto West Side Rd. Follow this all the way to the intersection of Rt.16. Go straight through the intersection - you'll now be on Rt.153 and you will reach the Inn at Crystal Lake in 5.8 miles.
From Boston: Take 95N and after entering New Hampshire, take exit 4 ("NH & the White Mts." - a left-hand exit). This will be the Spaulding Turnpike/Rt.16. Follow the "heading north" directions above.
From New York City: Take 95N to New Haven, then 91N to Hartford. Pick up 84E to the Mass Pike (90). Take 90E to 495N. This will rejoin 95 at the NH/MA border. After entering New Hampshire, take exit 4 ("NH & the White Mts." - a left-hand exit). This will be the Spaulding Turnpike/Rt.16. Follow the "heading north" directions above.
From Portland, Maine Airport: Take Rt.25 West through the towns of Gorham, Standish, Cornish and Porter. After you enter New Hampshire, take a right onto Rt.153 and you'll reach the Inn at Crystal Lake in 9 miles, just past the "Little White Church".
From Manchester, NH Airport: Take 93N to exit 23 and go east towards Meredith on Rt.104 which dead-ends in about 8 miles. Go left and at the next stoplight, make a right onto Rt.25 (towards West Ossipee). Rt.25 dead-ends at Rt.16. Make a left onto Rt.16 and follow this all the way into Conway Village. At the light after the Majestic movie theater, take a right onto Rt.153 and you'll reach the Inn at Crystal Lake in 5.8 miles.
Note: The parking lot and entrance are located behind the inn - there is a pathway down from the parking lot, with the entrance to the inn and pub off to the right (please do not come all the way around to the front door - if you do, you will find it is locked!).
