4970 County Rd. 14 is located 2 miles south of St. Rt. 224, 17 miles north of St. Rt. 17 (I86), 3 miles East of St. Rt. 14 and 4 miles West of St. Rt. 13.
(County Rd. 14 is also known as Jackson Hill Rd. or Hinman Turnpike Rd. if your GPS won't accept County Rd. 14--many of them don't)

Coming from the North (Watkins Glen)--take St. Rt. 14 South through Montour Falls.  After you pass the NYS Academy of Fire Science (on the hill on the left just outside of Montour Falls), take your SECOND left onto County Road 14 (Jackson Hill Road). Proceed 3 miles to the 4-way stop. We are right in front of you at that intersection.

From the South:  (Horseheads, Corning, Elmira)  Proceed north on St. Rt. 14.  Just as you enter the Village of Montour Falls limits, you will see a Moose Club on your right and H.L. Stephens Furniture Store on your left--just past the Moose, take a right onto County Rd. 14 (Jackson Hill Rd.).  Follow that road 3 miles to a 4 way stop.  Proceed straight through the stop sign (after stopping of course :))) --we are the 2nd place on the right.

From the East: (Ithaca)  Coming from Ithaca, proceed south on St. Rt. 13 to the intersection of St. Rt. 224--go past that intersection to the next right turn (CR 14 or Hinman Turnpike).  Follow CR 14 for 4 miles  As you come down the road, you will see us on the left side.
