We are on a bit of Virginia that is separated from the rest of the state by Kerr Lake, if you look at a map of the North Carolina/ Virginia state line area you will see Kerr Lake in approximately the middle of the state north of Durham N.C. Doing this will help you to understand the directions, which while they may sound confusing, are really quite simple.
Directions: From the South via Interstate 85
From the south take I 85 to exit 214 which is hyw. 39 north. At the Henderson NC exit 214 off the Interstate go left (north) on Hwy 39 for 17 miles, you will cross into Va. (See below)
Directions: From the North via Interstate 95 to 85
From north take Interstate-95 to I 85 to exit 214 which is NC hwy 39 north. At the Henderson NC exit 214 off the Interstate, go right (north) on Hwy 39 for 17 miles, you will cross into Va. (See below)
When you cross into Va on Hwy 39
There is no sign saying welcome to Va., but the road surface changes to a sort of gravely asphalt, no reflector blips, or side line markings and Va. doesn't mow the verges out here, you'll know when you enter a different state. Also if you look back over your shoulder you may see the "Welcome to North Carolina" sign receding into the distance. 1/2 mile after the state line our sign is on the left beside two mailboxes and our driveway. You can't see the nursery from here, but we are up the hill and we are the only thing up here. If you miss our turn there is a store called the Trading Post on the right 1/2 mile past us, turn around if you reach this.
From Hwy 15:
Leaving Clarksville, follow 15 south toward Oxford NC, you will cross into N.C. about 6 miles outside of town. Where you would normally take Townsville Rd. there is a detour as the bridge is out. Follow orange signs for Townsville Rd Detour. Turn left in Bullock NC follow the detour till it brings you back to Townsville Rd at a stop sign. Turn right and follow about 6 more miles without turning. You will pass a store on the left called The Trading Post (now closed) which is set in a big curve, 1/2 mile past the store our sign and turn are on the right. We are the only thing up the hill. If you miss the turn and go back into N.C. in another 1/2 mile you've gone too far, turn around and come back.
