How to Get to Homeplace

Homeplace's physical (not mailing) address is

90 Old Pump Road
Essex, VT

WARNING: The road numbering can be confusing. If you are coming from Jericho, you have to drive past the Essex town line sign before the numbers work. And GPS readings bring you to the mailboxes, not to Homeplace. Check out the directions below.

Homeplace is just about

  • half an hour from Burlington and
  • less than an hour from Shelburne and Stowe.

Ask your host about the area's many restaurants. Between the Green Mountains and Lake Champlain, there's something for every taste and budget.

  • From Interstate 89, take Exit 11.
    • If you have been going north, turn right at the stop sign, then continue bearing right onto Vermont Route 117.
    • If you have been going south, turn left at the stop sign, go under I-89, pass the entrance to I-89 north, then bear right onto Vermont Route 117.
  • Continue on VT 117 for 3.2 miles. You will come to a white house on the right. Immediately after the white house, turn a sharp right onto Skunk Hollow Road. The road sign might be invisible; don't look for it.
  • Go 2.4 miles down Skunk Hollow Road to the stop sign. Turn left. You are now on Plains Road.
  • Continue on Plains Road for .5 miles, until you reach the stop sign. Bearing left, go across the road and head up the hill to the right, onto Vermont Route15.
  • As you crest the hill, look for two churches on each side of the road, and go past a yellow "Children Crossing" sign.
  • Opposite the "Speed Limit 35" sign, turn left onto Old Pump Road. (If you see an elementary school on the right, you've gone too far.)
  • Go 1.1 miles down Old Pump Road, and past the Essex town line sign. You want to find a dirt road taking off to the right.
  • Look for a large red mailbox hiding in the trees on your right (it has "Huessy Homeplace" written on it). Turn right at that mailbox, and you're on the B&B's driveway.
  • Drive straight on for half a mile — do not turn right at the fork — and you'll be at Homeplace. There is a large parking lot right in front of the house.
