onto Stoney Point Road, a gravel road that is
usually unmarked because the signs are frequently stolen.
You will see, though, a homemade sign in the shape of an
arrow with Shady River written on it and it points toward
the left turn. If you miss the turn, go approximately
1/10th of a mile to the Hwy 93 "to Dalton" intersection.
Turn around and come back toward Pocahontas and take the
first right onto Stoney Point. You will cross a low water
bridge approximately 600 yards from Hwy 90.
Stoney Point Road for 1.7 miles. You should see
white arrow signs along the way. At the next turn, you will
see a green mailbox on the left which says Hayes. On the
right you will see a cedar post with reflective tape and the
Shady River sign. Turn right and go down the big,
big hill. At the bottom of the hill go
straight, wind around and cross a cattle
guard. Follow the road until you see a white arrow sign
pointing to a road to the left. Take this road to
the left until you come to the cottages. Each has a
name on it so go to the one you have rented. We will see
you sometime on your day of arrival.
