GETTING TO BIRCHVIEW HOMESTEAD

Continue below for specifics on entering our community, parking and accessing our home.

ENTERING THE COMMUNITY - SECURITY GATES

You'll access our community through (1) of the (2) Security Gates (both located on Mountain Road, accessed from rt. 115 and rt. 534). Our home is centrally located, being about a 7-10 minute drive from either gate. As a renter, you will not have access to a gate card. You will need to check-in with security each time you enter the community.

When entering, be prepared to provide:

  • Your name

  • Address of our home (provided in message 5 days before Check-in)

  • Your driver's license and vehicle registration (if requested)

Security has the right to refuse entry into the community, which will happen if the information provided during Registration does not match what is provided at security.

 

This also means no delivery services like Uber, DoorDash, Instacart, etc.

If you encounter an issue, please call us immediately so we can straighten it out. Please do not argue with security, as they are contracted with the HOA to follow the community regulations.

*** IF ANY OF YOUR INFORMATION HAS CHANGED SINCE SUBMITTING YOUR REGISTRATION, SUBMIT A CHANGE REQUEST FORM ON THE REGISTRATION PAGE ***

Gate 115

As you approach the gate, you'll see the Security Hut on the left. Follow the parking cones around the back of the Security Hut and drive up to the window. Stay in your car as you approach. Allow space on your right hand side so property owners can go around you and go through the gate with their gate pass.

PARKING AT BIRCHVIEW HOMESTEAD

Updated as of Summer 2022: We have 2 driveways, both accessed from the front of the home (one on the left/right). You may park anywhere in the front of our home on stone, avoiding the two PVC pipes (we have decorative planters blocking them). Do not drive on the sides or behind our home. Do not park on the road.

Please be cautions when pulling out onto our road, as it is narrow. Please do not drive off the road across from our home.
