Travel about a half mile. Comfort Suites will be on your right

To the Stone House
Turn right onto Desert Road and continue north, through the light(s) and into downtown Freeport

Turn right onto Bow Street after Ralph Lauren (opposite Ben & Jerry's and L.L.Bean) and travel about 2.5 miles

Bear right onto Wolfe's Neck Road and go 2.25 miles, passing  the entrance to the State Park, to the very end of the road (the road is dirt in the State Park then returns to tar)

Any carpooling to the Stone House will reduce emissions and help maintain the rural character of the peninsula.
