when you arrive

We have six accessible parking spaces for our guests, which are conveniently located adjacent to our main entrance; making it easier for you to come-and-go. The parking spots are between 8” and 9” wide and accompanied with an a 5-foot wide accessible aisle to help you with the extra room you need to exit and enter your vehicle.

With the winter months comes our picturesque snow falls. We want everyone to be able to enjoy these cozy winters, so we ensure our parking lot is regularly plowed and salted.

Our toilet sits no higher than 19” off the floor. We have mounted two grab bars; one on the wall beside the toilet and another on the rear wall.

Our hotel has two restroom options in our Accessible Queen Standard Room; choose between either a standard bathtub with a removable accessible bench or a roll-in shower with removable accessible bench.
