Please review and print out the following directions for ease of finding us — WAZE or GOOGLEMAPS on a Verizon phone works well, but other systems may mislead, and sometimes quit in this rural area!

DO NOT go onto Roger Road (it leads to a river) and
DO NOT go to Dobbins Hollow in Pilot, VA. : )
Your navigation will generally tell you ‘You have arrived’ a little too early on Dobbins Farm —
KEEP GOING until you see the green street sign for ‘Anahata Circle’ and our black mailbox with 811 on it!

Also, unless you have a Verizon cell phone, please be sure to make your travel communications ahead of time or ‘in town’.
