Administrative Information

  • Trailer Direction: The address for the clinic: 36502 Kidwell Road, Hillsboro (or Purcellville), VA 20132When you turn up Kidwell Road, we are the 4th drive on the right. The number is 36502, and it says Windchase on the mailbox and rock sign. At the house, bear left and go back past the lake to the stables. Please drive slowly and watch for speed bumps and dogs.PLEASE NOTE: If you are coming from Leesburg or the East and traveling up Route 9, there is ongoing construction in Hillsboro - expect delays of 20 minutes or more. Please plan accordingly.
    At times route 9 will be closed altogether - but we do not know in advance which days it will be closed.
    For traffic updates, visit this website: https://rethink9.com/traffic-alerts/
    To avoid this construction, if you are traveling from the Leesburg area, stay on Route 7 to Round Hill, and cut through on 719 north (Woodgrove Rd), then left on 751 (Cider Mill Rd), which will bring you out to turn left on Route 9 – you will be west of Hillsboro, thereby missing the construction. From there, right on 671, and left on Kidwell. Email me at pwindchase73@gmail.com if you need more detailed info or a map.
    The GPS will sometimes direct people to turn onto Piney Run Road instead of Kidwell. DO NOT DO THIS! Please be sure to turn off of 671, the Harpers Ferry Road, onto Kidwell Road. (Piney Run Lane is about a quarter mile north of Kidwell.)
