Directions: Fletcher's Boat House is located 2 miles North of Key Bridge and 1 mile South of Chain Bridge, at the intersection of Reservoir Road and Canal Road. You can only reach it going Northbound on Canal. You will know you have reached the entrance to Fletcher's when you see the Abner Cloud House, an old stone building, which is adjacent to the canal.

An Alternate route is to take MacArthur Blvd. northbound to Reservoir Road. Take a left onto Reservoir, follow to bottom of hill and entrance is directly across Canal Road.

From 66 East, take the Rosslyn exit to Key Bridge. Take a left onto Canal Road after crossing over Key Bridge. Bear left at Foxhall to stay on Canal Road, and continue onward until the entrance of Fletcher's at Canal and Reservoir.
