Take I-90 east to Exit 12, (Hudson)
At Exit 12, turn right (Rt. 9 South, going toward Hudson)
Get in the left lane right away, because in less than a mile, you will make a very sharp left turn onto County Rt 32. There is a small sign for it saying “No. Chatham. ” It is easy to miss– it is soon after a half-moon parking lot on the left. If you go under a small railroad bridge (not the big bridges for I-90 which you should pass) you have missed it,. Reverse.
Stay on County Route 32 for about four miles (pretty, lots of hills) until a full stop sign.
The stop sign is at a four corners. Take the 90 degree right turn into pretty hamlet of North Chatham, passing the library on your right and a Methodist Church on your left.
The hamlet ends with a fork in the road. Take the left fork onto Route 17.
Stay on Route 17 until another full four corners, when the road joins with Rt, 66. (about 3 miles).
Take Rt 66 toward Malden Bridge, a left turn (66 North).
In 1/4 mile, turn left onto Bashford Rd, a small dirt road.
In another 1/4 mile or less, we are the first house on Bashford on the right side, up a very steep hill. The mailbox says 52. You cannot see the house from the road. It is a barn red house,
In normal traffic, it is 35 minutes from downtown Albany.
