We're easy to find! Cider Hill is 2-1/2 miles from the traffic light in the center of Windsor, where you turn onto State Street. At the end of State Street, continue up the hill to Hunt Road - do not bear right toward the hospital.

When you think you've gone too far, you're almost there! Look for our sign on the left.
