Accessibility

Although The Woodstocker B&B is an old house whose main structure was built in 1830, it complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act  (ADA). While the act does not require the inn to provide accessible rooms in all situations due to its size and age, the owners will work to ensure every guest who wishes to visit can do so regardless of their physical abilities.

Among the ways The Woodstocker B&B complies with the ADA: 

  • We ensure that individuals with disabilities can make reservations during the same hours and in the same manner as individuals without disabilities.
  • We have identified and described accessible features and inaccessible features in our bed and breakfast and guest rooms in detail to allow individuals with disabilities to determine whether our B&B meets their needs.
  • We ensure that accessible guest rooms are held for use by individuals with disabilities until all other guest rooms of that type have been rented.
  • We will reserve, upon request, accessible guest rooms or specific types of guest rooms and ensure that the reserved rooms are blocked and removed from our reservation system.
  • We guarantee that a specific accessible guest room, once reserved, is held for the reserving customer. We make reasonable efforts with third-party reservation systems to make accessible rooms available through at least some of these services and provide these third-party services with information concerning the accessible features of the hotel and the accessible rooms.
  • Guests with legitimate service animals will be provided access to all areas of The Woodstocker B&B afforded to those without service animals.

And how they may or may not accommodate people with disabilities

The Woodstocker B&B is an old house, built in 1830. Although with its age comes limitations to accessibility, the owners have made every reasonable effort to make it accessible to people with disabilities.

For people with mobility restrictions: A side entrance provides an access with no steps (the front door has a few steps and no ramp). There are 2 steps to go from the front part of the B&B to the back part where the 1st floor rooms are located.
