GPS IS VERY SPOTTY IN THIS AREA. However if you GPS the above address: Mansfield Lodge No. 36, F&AM and the address, you should be okay. I will have big A frame signs at both driveways. Because it’s a circular driveway, don’t panic if you miss the first sign – just go to the next driveway and drive to the back of the building and look for the wood door. DO NOT go to the front door of the Lodge.

This place has great kitchens in every room. It is about 15 minutes from my building. When you call, tell them you want a first floor room, as close to the outside door as possible.
