After you are in French Lick...
Take IN-56 S through French Lick, IN. Please watch your speed through West Baden and French Lick. Speed limits are strictly enforced in town.
Approx. 6 miles west of downtown French Lick is North Hillham Road (may be listed as N Nillham Rd NW). Turn RIGHT onto North Hillham Road. North Hillham Road is the first right-hand turn after the used car lot on your right. If you pass Nicholson's Market, you have gone too far.
Take the 2nd right on North West Hillham Road (about 2 miles out) on to Spencer Hollow Road. (Google/GPS labels this road Emmons Ridge/Newland Road). There will be a road sign near a tree on the right before you make the turn. If you reach a turkey farm, you have gone too far. The hill with this sign is also the best place to get cellular phone signal while at Our Haven. Spencer Hollow Road becomes a gravel road. Please note: the road name will change from Hillham Road to Rusk Road.
About a mile down Spencer Hollow Road on the left is our turn in.
Look for a sign on the left like the one below off the road about 100 feet.
