Question Mount Network Location to Folder

This isn't really a Linux question, but I like this forum the most. Is there a way to mount a Samba network path to a NTFS directory in Windows instead of a drive?

I'm pretty sure that is not possible in Windows. You can mount an actual volume in an empty ntfs folder, but I don't think that you can do that with a network share.

I looked for work arounds, but didn't see any.
