Review Our Accessibility Statement

Accessibility Policy

The Inn at Bay Ledge, a waterfront Inn located in Bar Harbor, Maine, strives to provide all guests with a comfortable and inclusive experience. While it is important to note that our early 1900s Inn is not currently fully wheelchair accessible, we are committed to ongoing efforts to improve accessibility for all.

The Inn at Bay Ledge presents the following physical barriers that may impact accessibility:

  • Entrances: Each entrance to the building requires navigating at least two steps, as stairs lead to every entry.
  • Interior Structure: The Inn’s internal structure includes narrow hallways and doorways that do not accommodate wheelchair access.
  • Guest Bathrooms: None of the guest bathrooms are ADA-compliant, as they feature shower/tub combinations or small step-in showers.
  • Breakfast Room: Accessing the breakfast room from the commons area involves descending one step.
  • Parking: While the Inn provides a parking lot on the side of the building, entering through either the front or side entrance requires navigating steps.

We recognize that these physical barriers present challenges for guests with mobility needs. Rest assured, we are actively improving our accessibility features to create a more inclusive environment for all visitors.

Accessible Accommodation(s):

At The Inn at Bay Ledge, we are committed to ensuring that all guests can enjoy their stay with us.

We are pleased to offer the following accessible accommodations:

  • We have three rooms located on the first floor in the main building. Please note that entrance to these rooms requires navigating at least three steps. These rooms include:

  • We provide a convenient circle drive in front of the Inn for unloading luggage. However, please be aware that entrance to the Inn requires navigating steps.
  • At the time of booking, guests will have an opportunity to make us aware of any dietary restrictions they may have. While we are not an allergen-free facility, we strive to provide a meal that all guests can enjoy daily. Please let us know in advance so that we can ensure a delightful dining experience for you.

We are committed to ensuring that our property is accessible to all individuals, regardless of their physical abilities. As part of our efforts to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), we have implemented the following practices:

  • We ensure that individuals with disabilities can make accommodation reservations during the same hours and in the same manner as those without disabilities. Our goal is to provide equal access and convenience for all guests.
  • We have identified and described the features and physical barriers of our guest rooms and cottages in sufficient detail. These descriptions enable individuals with disabilities to determine whether a particular accommodation meets their accessibility needs independently.
  • Once a guest room is reserved, we guarantee the room will be held for the reserving customer and removed from all reservation systems.
  • Guests with legitimate service dogs will be granted access to all areas of the Inn where members of the public are allowed to go.

We are committed to continuously improving our accessibility measures and providing an inclusive experience for all guests.
