We are located in the Fort Ethan Allen Complex in Essex Junction, VT. Most of Fort Ethan Allen is located in Colchester, but we are on the Essex side. There are two entrances to the Fort, and while you can reach us from either entrance, we suggest using the eastern entrance closest to Susie Wilson Road. This entrance has gates on either side that don’t close. There is a tall stone tower just inside this entrance. It is the tallest building around. Head for that tower. We are very close to the tower, but not right at the tower.
We will attempt to give you directions here, but the best guidance comes from Google Maps, and we will provide a link at the bottom of this page to help you get that guidance.

Once in Fort Ethan Allen, you should see an old tall stone tower on the right. Take your first right in Fort Ethan Allen into what appears to be a large parking lot. Keep to the left of this parking lot and go past the guard rails on your left and then go between a building on your right and buildings on the left toward the edge of the Fort. When you see a driveway with a house in front of you, take a right onto Claire Drive (there is a street sign!). Go through the buildings toward the tall stone tower. Just before the tower, you should see a long wooden ramp with an American Flag and our sign. You have reached #12 Claire Drive and our entrance! Parking is onsite. Come on in!
