If you have never been to the Eastern Shore of Virginia, be assured that
finding your way around is easy. Do not stress over finding the conference,
hotel, or any of our other venues. The Eastern Shore is a peninsula with one
main highway, Highway 13, running north and south from one end to the other. The
hotel and conference meeting room are right on the highway in Exmore. The other
places are just one turn off the highway. We'll post a page with directions for
all the places before conference time.
You might want to know that they have two rooms that are wheelchair accessible. They also have non-smoking rooms, many downstairs rooms, and 8 suites with microwaves and refrigerators.
