Here we go.
It is the Internet Age. Most of you just need an address to plug into your GPS, Google Maps app or On Star service. If that is you, our address is:
158 Bowen Hill Road, East Dorset, Vermont 05253.
We know we have some adventurous visitors also. They might want just our latitude and longitude. If you are one of those, here you go:
We are at 43 degrees, 15 minutes, 47.75 seconds North and 73 degrees, 0 minutes and 24.68 seconds West.
At 43 North, most of you will note that we are almost at 45 North. Which is the approximate halfway point between the equator and North Pole. 45 North is also the boundary between Montana and Wyoming. It was supposed to also be the border between Vermont and Canada. If you head due north from the Aerie Inn and stop when you reach 45 North you will be in Franklin Vermont. Due to a survey error you will find yourself about one kilometer south of Canada.
Back to our “directions.”
For those needing more information, please call us and we are happy to give you very specific routing information. We are easy to find. We are 25 miles south of Rutland Vermont and 30 miles north of Bennington Vermont. From either of these two towns you will be traveling on Vermont Route 7. From Vt Rt 7 you can only turn east onto Bowen Hill Road. After about 100 yards on Bowen Hill Rd you will see your first driveway on the right. That is us! Welcome.
