NOTE: Use Google Maps rather than Mapquest for driving directions. The former is correct while there are errors in the latter. Also, be very watchful on River Road as there is an abundance of deer on the monastery property. Dawn and dusk are the times to be on the lookout for deer crossing, usually two or three at a time.
