LOCATION: Greater Charlottesville Area of Central Virginia

We are located on 68 acres at 98 Gormes Drive at Route 29 Northbound, in Faber (Nelson County), Virginia. This is a picturesque region of the Blue Ridge Mountains, just 20 minutes south of Charlottesville and Interstate 64. 

Private sessions are offered in Faber, or by phone and soon internet. Workshops are offered online and at conferences nationwide. 


From Charlottesville, VA: Take Rt. 29 South approximately 17 miles below I-64, and 8 miles south of Plank Road, North Garden. Watch for small metal sign (not stone one) that indicates that you just crossed into Nelson County.  (If you see stone “Welcome to Nelson County” sign or Rt. 6 East, Irish Road, you have gone too far. Turn around and go back to top of hill and you will see Gormes Drive at the crest of the hill.)

As you are traveling on Rt. 29 South, you will see a hill curving left. At the top is  Thurmonds Hollow Rd (Rt. 615) on the right. My driveway is directly opposite on the northbound side. Make a LEFT U-turn going Rt. 29 North, get into right lane, and take quick RIGHT U-turn onto Gormes Drive (brown street sign). 

Go to second drive on left #98. Drive slowly in case another car is coming up drive. Go straight down to the main house and park in circle.          

From Crozet/Batesville: Take Miller School Road south from Rt. 250 to Plank Road, Batesville. Turn left to Rt. 29. Turn right on Rt. 29 going south for 8 miles. See rest above.

From Waynesboro and points west: Take I-64 to Exit 99, Afton Mountain, and go right onto Rt. 250 East to bottom of hill. From there you have 2 choices, each about same distance although Rt. 6 is less easier.

            Option 1: Take Rt. 151 going south (about 7 miles) to Rt. 6 East (6 miles) to Rt. 29 and turn left going North for 4 miles, passing Rt. 6 East (Irish Rd), and go another 1 mile to top of hill on Rt. 29 to Gormes Drive. Drive is sharp U-turn immediately after.

            Option 2: Pass by Rt. 151 and take next right (Plank Road) through Batesville to Rt. 29. Turn right going South for 8 miles to top of hill. See Charlottesville directions above. 

From Scottsville: Take Irish Road (Rt. 6 West) to Rt. 29 and turn right. Go north one mile to second street on right, Gormes Drive. 

From Lovingston: Take Rt. 29 North 12 miles (past both Rt. 6W and Rt. 6 E). Gormes Drive will be on right at top of hill, just one mile north of Rt. 6E (Irish Rd).
