Sanctuary is located on Rt. 28 (19520 Darnestown Rd.) approximately 16 miles west of the junction on I-270 in Rockville.
From Washington: Take Rt. 495 (Beltway) to I-270 North. Take
exit 6B (Route 28 West) towards Darnestown. Go approximately
16 miles. When you pass Peachtree Veterinary Clinic on the
left and Lewis Orchards on the right, we are 1.5 miles on
the left, just after Jerusalem Road. Turn left into the driveway. Go slowly or you
will miss the turn. If you get to the traffic light at Route
109, you will have gone too far.
Baltimore or Frederick: Take I-70 to Frederick and then
take the exit for Rt. 355 and Rt. 85. Stay on Rt. 85 through
Buckeystown and the road will eventually become Route 28.
Continue on Route 28 through the town of Beallsville (at
the traffic light). We are 3/10 of a mile past Route 109
on the right. Look for our mailbox with the street address
19520. If you get to Jerusalem Road, you have gone too far. Turn right into the driveway.
By train: Sanctuary is only 1.5 miles from the Barnesville stop on the Brunswick Line of the MARC commuter train that travels to and from Washington DC during rush hours Monday-Friday. It is usually possible for us to pick up or drop off guests at the Barnesville station. For a downloadable schedule, see:
