How to Find Kalvos & Damian...

Directions to Kalvos House & WGDR Station


Directions to Radio Station

From the North or the South

  1. Follow I-89 to exit for Montpelier/St. Johnsbury (exit 8).
  2. Take the access road (it goes only one way), which will pass through a few traffic lights, cross Vt Rt 12, and become US2 (east, I think it is).
  3. Keep going on US2 (bearing left at a fork to Berlin Corners, just in case that intersection looks confusing).
  4. It will join and leave US302. Ignore this. Stay on US2, which goes straight when US302 leaves by forking right.
  5. It will join Vt 14, which comes in from the right. Ignore this, too. Stay on US2.
  6. US2 and Vt 14 will split. Bear right and stay on US2 toward Plainfield.
  7. A few miles after the split, the speed limit will decrease as you near Plainfield village. Watch for the sign to Goddard College or Vt 214.
  8. Turn left onto Vt 214, which is a double turn (used to be a hairpin, recently contoured, but still sharp).
  9. Go about 6/10 mile and turn left into the entrance, just over the crown of the hill. It's the second major-looking entrance.
  10. About 50 feet after the turn, turn left again at a small, obscure and largely invisible sign that says Pratt Library and WGDR.
  11. Park at the end of that short drive, near the library.
  12. New info:The radio station is to the right of the library parking lot, down a path and to the door visible at the end of the path. If this door is locked, go around the right side of the building to the station's back door. (You can't get to WGDR from inside the library on weekends!)
  13. If you'll need any help, let me know. WGDR is not handicapped accessible on weekends.

From the East, Normal Route

  1. NH roads of choice into Vermont via US 302 west.
  2. Follow US 302 west to where it joins US2 (this is many many miles). Follow US 2 east (right turn).
  3. It will join Vt 14, which comes in from the right. Ignore this, too. Stay on US2.
  4. Continue with Step #6 above in directions from North/South.

From the East, Scenic Route

  1. Find US2 west out of NH. Follow to Vt 214 in Plainfield Vt.
  2. Bear right at fork off US 2 onto Vt 214.
  3. Continue with Step #9 above in directions from North/South.

From the East, Longer but Faster Route

  1. Find any fast road out of NH to I-91 south.
  2. Follow I-91 south to White River Junction and join I-89 north.
  3. Follow I-89 to exit for Montpelier/St. Johnsbury (exit 8).
  4. Continue with Step #2 above in directions from North/South.

Directions to House:

From the North

  1. Follow I-89 to Exit for Montpelier (Exit 8).
  2. Follow River Road (extension of off ramp) to the third traffic light, junction to Vt 12.
  3. Turn right, and follow Vt 12 south about 6+ miles through Riverton (identified by RR crossing & truss bridge).
  4. About 2.5 miles after Riverton is Northfield Falls crossroads (there's the Falls Store, big & blue-grey, there). That is Cox Brook Road.
  5. Turn right onto Cox Brook Road. Go through, quickly in succession, covered bridge, RR crossing, covered bridge.
  6. Stop. You're there. Dark green house on the right as you come out of the covered bridge. Leedle barn on left.

From the South

  1. Follow I-91 or I-93 to I-89 into Vermont to the Exit for Northfield/Williamstown (Exit 5, 45 miles from the border/junction).
  2. From the exit ramp, go left and down the access road (Vt 63, I think) toward Northfield, a few miles.
  3. At the stop sign, turn right. You will be on Vt 12 north.
  4. Go through Northfield village (about 2 miles) and continue on Vt 12 (about 2 miles), where you'll be in Northfield Falls. It's a little crossroads marked by a gray-blue country store, the Falls General Store.
  5. The store is on the corner of Vt 12 and Cox Brook Road. Turn left onto Cox Brook Road.
  6. In quick succession will be a covered bridge, railroad tracks, and another covered bridge. Go through, over & through ... and stop. You're there.
  7. Our place is right at the outlet of the second covered bridge, on the right, with a horse barn on the left. Find a safe place to park, either in our little driveway if there's no snow, or diagonally across from the barn nestled into the corner of the little side road.

Where to Stay:

The Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce has a list. We tend to be a little ignorant of these things -- we put folks up in a cheap motel, the Econo-Lodge, five minutes' walk from downtown Montpelier, and the Vermonter Motel, five minutes walk from the acclaimed Wayside Restaurant.

There are lots of B&B's around. Check here first: Virtual Cities and Vermont Inns.

We've used Betsy's in Montpelier, The Northfield Inn (which is expensive) in Northfield, and the Inn at Montpelier. The Margaret Holland Inn in Northfield has now closed. Three Stallion in Randolph is very good, but it's about 35 miles south of the station. The Inn at Johnnycake Flats in Roxbury are old friends of ours, but still 25 miles south. Autumn Harvest Inn in Williamstown is very nice if you're horse people

There are also accommodations in other towns around the area, most pretty nice. If you like skiing, you can stay across the mountain at one of the B&B's in Warren. We don't have a list of these, but this search for accommodations in Sugarbush turns up stuff.
