Driving directions to Sterett Bros. Hay:
The barn is located just northeast of downtown Woodinville.
Take 405 North to 522 (Monroe exit right near Woodinville).
From Seattle take Lake City Way. In downtown Bothell is the sign for 522 -
it's a continuation of Lake City Way/Bothell Way.
From other locations, call for directions or go to yahoo.com for an online map
Take Highway 522 East toward Monroe; take the 2nd exit - 195th street.
At the end of the exit, continue on up the hill over the railroad tracks.
You want to turn LEFT At the 4th light, - which is the intersection of 156th
Ave NE and NE Woodinville-Duvall Rd.
between the Arco and Texaco gas stations on the left.
Turn left onto 156th Ave. NE (between the 2 gas stations).
(For those of you familiar with the area - the is the "White Stallion" corner)
Stay on 156th about 2 miles (it 's name changes to Bostian Rd. and/or 75th)
- to Sterett Bros. Hay till
you see the hanging white sign on the left side of the road where the
driveway meets the road -
(You cannot see the barn from the road).
It is the 2nd driveway on the left past a housing development with a big sign
called Windsor Park
and just BEFORE the big Church of Christ parking lot (also on the left),
It is right before the road makes a SHARP bend to the right.
(If you make a 90 degree turn on the road to the right; you've gone too far!)
We will have some balloons on the hanging sign and hopefully also on the
RIGHT side of the road.
You can't see the barn well from the road - you see a beige square house just
past the sign.
Turn in, come DOWN the driveway to the barn or park where valets direct you!
