How to get there
Directions to Carova Cottage:
4 wheel drive is essential!
Day Time Arrival is Best, & come in at Low Tide, if possible! If arriving at night, you will need a strong flashlight. It is hard to see the mile markers at night.
After leaving the asphalt (Rt. 12) in Corolla, you will access the beach. Drive north for 8 miles. You will see a sign on the dune access for the 'Recycle Center'. Take this access on the left. Take your first right onto Sandfiddler Rd. Drive ½ mile, approximately 9 houses, & you will see the cottage on the right. The house sits very close to the road, the house number is 2083 Sandfiddler Rd. It has grey siding and a slanted roof . You can find the house using your GPS but you may not have a signal.
