From Potsdam…

How to get to Hidden Meadow Inn from Potsdam and Points South

OPTION 1 and 2 take you north on the east side of the Raquette River.

I would choose OPTION 1 if the roads are very icy.

OPTION 2 is picturesque, especially when you cross the one-lane bridge between Rt 56 and Sober Street.  Some of our Amish neighbors use this road; please watch for buggies and horses.

OPTION 3 takes you north on the west side of the Raquette River.  Very scenic. More curves.  At certain times of the year this route can be foggy; please drive carefully.


  • Go north on Rt. 56 to Norfolk.
  • Turn left at the Main Street Bridge (CR 38). Go one mile.
  • Just before Sabad’s Restaurant, turn left on to Sober Street. Go one mile.
  • Our driveway is on the left right before our sign.


  • Go north on Rt 56 through the village of Norwood.
  • Right after the speed limit changes from 30 to 45 (you’ll see 2 signs for 45 MPH), turn left on CR 48A (Yaleville Road/River Road Ext).
  • You will have an S-curve right before a 1-lane bridge with a clearance of just 7 feet, so this route will not work if you are driving a big rig.
  • At the T, turn Right onto Sober Street.
  • Go 1.9 miles according to your odometer.
  • On the right you will see our sign right before our driveway.
