Light on the Hill is located exactly 1 mile up Blake Hill Road. If you are attending a function at Inner Light Lodge, go one mile up Blake Hill and make your first left after the beige colored house. You will see the lodge ahead of you and can check-in there.

If you are having a retreat in one of the cottages or huts, go one mile up Blake Hill and stop at the beige colored house which is on the left to check-in.

There is a Light on the Hill sign at the Blake Hill Road turn.

 

WARNING: Many GPS systems give incorrect directions when coming from the East (Spencer), and lead you to the “back way”, which is a poorly maintained, seasonal road. Be sure NOT to turn on Langford Creek Road from Rte 224. Keep going another mile to Blake Hill Rd.
