Directions to Thompson’s Tuckaway

(Frame of reference--Asheville, NC is about 15 miles west on I-40 and Hickory, NC is about 60 miles east on I-40)

PLEASE NOTE...DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS DIRECTIONS....THEY WILL LEAD YOU UP A VERY STEEP HILL.  INSTEAD, USE THE FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS WHICH WILL TAKE YOU UP A PICTURESQUE AND MUCH GENTLER APPROACH:

Take Exit 66 (Ridgecrest) off Interstate 40; westbound take left; eastbound take right at end of ramp; follow street onto gravel road and proceed up the hill. The house is the second on the left after the very sharp curve to the left. Our house is cream colored with red shutters and has a "Thompson’s Tuckaway" sign on the porch.  We are only 4/10 mile from I-40!
