Accessibility Policy and Features
White Doe Inn, listed on the National Registry, warmly welcomes all guests. However, due to the historic significance of our 1910 Queen Anne style home, the property is not completely wheelchair accessible. Removal of necessary physical barriers for accessibility is not readily achievable as such removal would threaten or destroy the historic significance of the property. These barriers include:
- No elevator
- Numerous steps leading to second and third floor guest rooms
Although White Doe Inn is an historic structure, we have undertaken many initiatives to ensure every guest who wishes to visit can do so regardless of their physical abilities. We do offer the following for those guests with limited disabilities:
- The Garden Bedchamber is wheelchair accessible from an outside ramp to this first floor room.
- Guests can also access the inn’s first floor common areas and outside verandah.
- The dining area is accessible from the Garden Bedchamber
- Spa services are available in the Garden Bedchamber
- Designated street parking is available leading directly to a brick ramp into the Garden Bedchamber.
Among the ways we comply with 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 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 guarantee that the specific accessible guest rooms, once reserved, are 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 we provide these third-party services with information concerning the features of the accessible rooms.
- Guests with legitimate service animals as defined in the ADA will be provided access to all areas of the inn afforded to those without service animals.
White Doe Inn is committed to facilitating the accessibility and usability of this website for all people with disabilities. We will continue to implement the relevant portions of the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA (WCAG 2.0 AA) or such other standards as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). On a periodic basis, our website will be tested with assistive technology.
Please be aware that our efforts are ongoing. You may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us 24/7 at (252) 473-9851 with questions or concerns regarding ADA accessibility, including issues accessing the website or with questions regarding the accessibility and personal needs of the various rooms.
