Cell Phone service in area is limited - very very little if you have AT&T. If you need to ask directions ask for Fairview, IN or the old Briggs Dairy Farm or Mert Bulters place - both neighbors.
There are lots of Amish folks with horses and buggies, plenty deer and narrow roads.  Please drive with caution
There is little outside of the town so make sure you fill up with gas ect while you are there.
Please follow my directions and not google ect you are likely to get lost or be sent on icky roads
There are several towns in Indiana called Fairview. We are in Switzerland county
Please Do Not drive in if Gates are Closed.  Park there and Walk IN

From Kentucky

Follow I - 71 to the Vevay Exit ( # 55 I think)  turn toward the Love's truck stop and go across Markland Dam into Indiana.
  ( lots of Ky state police - make sure you do the speed limit)

1 way : Turn RIGHT onto Hwy 156 and then Turn Right on Markland Pike.  This will be the Third Road after the large RVcampground.  Markland Pike will deadend onto Hwy 56.  GO Right into East Enterprise to the stop sign.  This will be Hwy 250.  GO LEFT on 250 for approx 5 miles to Fairview Rd on your LEFT.  Watch this turn. you have to come up on the hill far enough to see oncoming traffic and the turn then is sharp.  Follow Fairview Rd for approx 1 mile to Nell Lee Rd - 1st road on your Right.  Go 1/2 mile turn Left on W Turner Rd, proceed to gravel.  This dead ends into my place - grey farm house.  Yup it is gated.
  Please do not drive in if Gates are closed, walk in.

OR

This will take you into Vevay then up the hill
Turn RIGHT on HWY 156 go into Vevay to the first traffic light  = Hwy 56 and turn RIGHT
Hwy 56 is very narrow with lots of curves so be cautious.  Follow Hwy 56 about 5 miles and turn LEFT on FAIRVIEW Rd.  ( This will be shortly after a sharp right turn with a red barn that sits next to the road then a brick house with an American Flag on a large pole close to the road pond and fountain)  You will follow signs toward the "German Corner"
Follow Fairview Rd about 3 miles to NELL LEE rd on the LEFT - just past the German Corner
Nell Lee rd about 1/2 mi to W TURNER Rd on the LEFT and follow that back to the gravel and will dead end into my place


From Lexington I think it is easiest to go up 75 then hit 71 south to the Vevay exit.  It will be about 2 hrs to my place
