Limitations Regarding Accessibility at The Oak Bluffs Inn
The Oak Bluffs Inn, a historical establishment built in 1870, has certain limitations due to the nature of its construction. We regret to inform you that we do not have ADA accessible rooms. As such, accessibility features such as ramps or elevators are not available with the inn.
Access to the Inn and Guest Rooms
The Inn, all guest rooms and bathrooms at The Oak Bluffs Inn are accessed exclusively by a set of stairs. The bathroom showers have a step ranging from 8 inches to 20 inches to enter the shower. We acknowledge that this may present challenges for the individuals with mobility impairments and apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Access to the Carriage House Rooms
The rooms in the carriage house, an extension of The Oak Bluffs Inn, are accessed by a set of stairs and a gravel walkway. We understand that this may pose difficulties for guests with mobility limitations and offer our sincere apologies for any inconvenience experienced.
We would like to bring to your attention that the parking lot, back patio, and walkways at The Oak Bluffs Inn are covered with gravel. We understand that navigating these surfaces may present challenges for individuals with mobility impairments or those using mobility devices.
