Students arriving by car:
Meadowmount is 300 miles north of NYC, 145 miles north of Albany and 100 miles south of Montreal on route I-87. Take Exit 32 and go west towards Lewis on Hwy 12. Turn left at truck stop (Dixon Rd-not marked) and it becomes Redmond Rd. Go 1 mile to stop sign/T in the road. Turn left and immediately bear right at the fork onto Lewis-Wadhams Road (County Rte 10). Concert Hall is first driveway on the right and the Main House/Office is second driveway on right.
Students arriving by Bus:
Adirondack Trailways stops in Keene Valley, New York, 8 miles from school. Call 1-800-858-8555 for bus schedules. This is the only bus stop that Meadowmount will supply shuttle service to and from for students.
Students arriving by train:
Amtrak operates between New York City and Montreal, stopping at the Westport train station (8 miles from school). Call 1-800-USA-RAIL for train schedules. The once daily early morning train departing from Penn Station (NYC) is usually inconvenient for students flying on the first leg of their trip, because it necessitates an overnight stay. For those students it is usually best to book a flight to Burlington, Vermont.
Students arriving by air:
Students arriving by air must make arrangements to fly into the Burlington (Vermont) Airport only. Upon arrival, students take a taxicab to the Charlotte ferry landing in Charlotte, VT. (Approximately 35 minutes and a $45.00 taxi fare). Students take the ferry to cross Lake Champlain to Essex, NY. Ferries (www.ferries.com) run every half-hour; crossing time is 20 minutes and the cost is $6.25 round trip. (Price subject to change: see ferry website.) Students are met by our van at the Essex, NY, ferry landing.
It is very important you do not schedule your arriving flight into the Burlington airport after 7:30 pm, as it would not allow enough time to make the last ferry that departs Charlotte, VT, at 8:30 pm. If you do not have time to make the last ferry to Essex, NY, you should stay in Burlington and find hotel accommodations. There are no hotel accommodations near the ferry dock or in Charlotte, VT.
On the return trip, do not schedule your departing flight from Burlington before 9:00 am, as the first ferry to Vermont does not allow enough time to arrive at the airport for an earlier flight.
Parents are invited to visit between 12 noon Saturday and 10 pm Sunday only. The following hotels are located within ten miles of School. Contact them several weeks in advance of your visit for reservations.
