note: Once you turn onto Dobbyns Church Rd, the map sends you down the left fork. Spirithaven is down the right fork.
This is a long unpaved driveway. Please drive slowly and carefully.

The friendly inhabitants of Darbukastan wait to welcome you!

Directions to Spirithaven

From the North (also Northwest and East once on 58) -  Take your best route to VA State Route 58 (I-81, 95 or 77 generally)  Travel to Stuart and take the first exit off of the Stuart bypass.  This works when traveling from either 58 East or West.  Follow Blue Ridge St (old 58) into town and turn onto Main St (between the Post Office and the Courthouse).  Travel about two blocks going downhill, passing Lemon’s Jewelers on your right.  Go about 100 yards more and turn right on Dobyns Rd..  (There is a new intersection here.  The Bank is gone.  Turn Right at the new interchange)  Follow Dobyns Rd, bearing left across a bridge that passes between Stuart Flooring plant on the left and a small brick bldg on your right.  Continue for about 4 miles and you will come to a small white church with a black roof on your left. You can turn left just before the church and go 1.1 miles on the graveled Dobyns Church Rd or continue on Dobyns Rd for another ½ mile then turning left on to Peter’s Creek Drive.  Take Peter’s Creek for 1.5 miles and turn left on to Dobyns Church Rd..  Go 100 yards to the entrance to the farm.  There is now a road sign that says Spirithaven Lane across from the entrance to the driveway.   The site is ½ mile down the lane.

From the South, (those using I 77 or 40 to 77), Take the Mount Airy exit off of 77 and follow State Rt 89 into town.  89 is 4-lane for a bit and then skinnies down into a two lane.  Stay on this road even if prompted to turn.  Follow past Reeves Community Center on the left.  At this point, 89 becomes 103.  Follow 103 into VA and through the towns of Claudville and Dry Pond.  When you see Dry Pond Convenience Store on the right you have 3 miles until you turn.  The turn will be your second left and is Peter’s Creek Drive.  There is a VA State Hwy Dept. Maintenance Shed as you make this turn.  Travel 3 miles on Peter’s Creek Drive and as you crest a long hill you will see Dobyns Church Rd on the right.  Turn here and travel 100 yards to the gate to Spirithaven.   The site is ½ mile in on the gravel lane.

Please Note! Do not trust your GPS to get you here!   The driveway is narrow and intended for one-way traffic.  As it will be handling two-way traffic all weekend we ask that you pay special attention to the 10 mph speed limit and watch out for fellow citizens traveling the opposite way.  We know you want to meet all the nice folks here but there is a better way than by accident!!!
