Directions

holly farm lane in snowBecause we live on a one-lane dead-end road and have limited parking, we encourage people to bring your smaller car, carpool, use public transportation, or take a cab if coming from Seattle on the ferry..

Public Transportation: In the late afternoon and early evening of week-days, Kitsap Transit bus #106/Fletcher Bay leaves from the ferry and will drop you a short walk from the Groves. Tell the driver to drop you off at the end of Holly Farm Lane, then walk up the lane until you see the Sacred Groves sign.

Taxis meet most ferries so you don’t necessarily have to set this up in advance. From the ferry to the Groves, cost is around $12, less if you share the cab with others. Taxis and Tours: 206-842-7660. Bainbridge Is. Taxi: 206-842-1021

Parking: Sacred Groves property spans about 1/4 mile along the left side of Holly Farm Lane, going from where you see the Sacred Groves sign to the end of the lane. There are many places to park along Holly Farm Lane, look for signs. When you park, scoot in close to other cars. OK to block cars in, but please leave the keys on the floor so your car can be easily moved if necessary.

Contact us if you need help figuring out bus and carpool options.
