From the AIRPORT, best is to take a taxi. It is possible but time consuming to take the bus at certain times of the day; you will get the Yellow Line at the airport, transfer to either Red or Blue line to go to the transfer station downtown, then transfer to the Brown Line, tell the driver you get off at the Eureka and C stop. From there, walk two blocks south on 'C', turn left (east) on Glacier Avenue, look for us on the right-hand side of the street between 'E' & 'F'.
From the TRAIN, it is not far but there is no safe and legal way for you to walk. Please take a taxi.
Our front yard has a tall thick hedge, big spruce tree, and flagpole. There are two driveways; the reception entry is from the front porch on the street side of the house. Please ring the doorbell, you can come inside the heated arctic entry, and wait for the host to greet you..
