Directions

For Mapquest/GPS:

Our address is 766 Viewtown Road, Amissville VA 20106. I think most computer-driven directions send you beyond our place to the cemetery up the road – that really is NOT us! We are, as stated in our own directions, between the Amissville Baptist Church and the USPS building.

Beltway to Rt 66W. Exit onto 29 South at Gainesville (NOT Centreville). Go 11 miles south on 29. At interchange, follow signs to 211W (Business 29) toward Luray. Turn right at Howard Johnsons onto 211W. Proceed 11 miles to Rt 642 (signs there say Amissville and Viewtown). Turn left onto 642.

The first building on the left on 642 is the Amissville Baptist Church. Turn left into driveway immediately after the church (driveway hidden by pine trees on church side). The new Amissville Post Office is just past our driveway (our driveway is between church and Post Office). Our street address is 766 Viewtown Road (766 on electric pole at end of driveway) and a Border Collie announces Mountain View.

GPS: 766 Viewtown Road, Amissville VA 20106

Note that some GPSs will send you past Mountain View and up the road about a half mile. After you turn onto Viewtown Road (Rte. 642), the Amissville Baptist Church is immediately on your left and the Post Office immediately after that — with our driveway in between the two. Church – US – PO. We’ve lost people due to faulty GPS location. They may still be wandering the wilds of Rappahannock County in search of us. Also please note that there is no Mountain View sign. That doesn’t help. But if you get to the Post Office, you’ve passed us. Guess I should make us a sign.
