We are in the southern end of Canaan off the main Route 32 on Freeland Road. The red lodge is about 2 miles down this lane up in a wide open pasture at the base of the old ski slope....LINK TO GOOGLE MAPS

There's tricks to getting here, yet take your time and feel the mountain magic as you draw near. Many of the local roads are one and half lanes wide; slow up a bit in winter and do not test the low shoulders under a blanket of snow. Arrive ready to ski your legs off.
