Directions to the Meadows Institute

office entrance

DMI is located in downtown Norwich, Vermont. Our office is at the corner of Beaver Meadow Rd and Main St, just after Dan & Whit’s and the Norwich Inn. We are in the 2nd floor of the gray house there. Please come on up!

By Car
From Burlington/Montpelier and Sunapee/Concord NH:
Take I-89 towards Norwich (south if coming from Burlington or Montpelier, north if coming from Sunapee or Concord). Take the exit for I-91S toward Brattleboro/White River. Stay left at the fork and follow signs to merge onto I-91N toward White River Junction. Take Exit 13 toward Route 5/Norwich. After 0.2 miles, turn left onto Route 10A West/Main St. Go another 0.7 miles and then look for us on the left once you reach the town center.

From Brattleboro:
Take I-91 North to Exit 13. Follow signs for Rout 5/Norwich, then turn left onto Route 10A West/Main St. Continue through town about 0.7 miles. DMI is on the left just after the Norwich Inn.

By Bus
DMI is easily accessible on the Advance Transit bus system. From Hanover, take the Brown Line to the Tracy Hall stop in Norwich. From there, walk a short distance up Main St to Beaver Meadow Rd on the left. DMI is there on the corner.

If you are traveling by bus from Lebanon, West Lebanon, White River, or Hartford, visit the Advance Transit website to find the best route to take to connect with the Brown Line in Hanover.

Food and Drink
Norwich has a number of lovely places to grab a bite to eat. For fresh, healthy salads and sandwiches, we recommend Allechante on the corner of Main St and Elm St. The Norwich Inn right across the street from DMI is another great option for a cozy lunch, and they also serve dinner and drinks from their own brewery. If you have a car, King Arthur Flour Bakery is just a few minutes away on Rt 5, and they serve delicious sandwiches, soups, and baked goods. Carpenter and Main is another great option if you’re in town for dinner and would like a meal made from Vermont ingredients.

The Upper Valley has a range of accommodation options, ranging from hotels and inns to small bed & breakfasts and even camping spots. The Norwich Inn is a beautiful, historic place to stay right in downtown Norwich, and it’s one of DMI’s closest neighbors. Other nearby options include the Hanover Inn and Six South St Hotel, both minutes away in downtown Hanover.

Dan & Whit’s, Norwich’s famous general store, has the motto “If we don’t have it, you don’t need it!” It’s a fantastic spot right on Main St to get anything from gas to grapes to gardening supplies. For books, we recommend the Norwich Bookstore, a lovely little shop on Main St near the corner of Elm St. The post office and numerous banks are also located on Main St in Norwich center.
