Limited handicap access
Sundance Bear Lodge is in two buildings, each very different in style, size, age and accessibility. Over the years, we have been able to make some modifications, primarily to facilitate wheelchair access.
Please read the information below and, if you have handicap requirements, please contact us ahead of your visit to discuss. If we know the specific needs, we will let you know our capabilities.
Sundance Bear handicap capabilities
The main lodge public areas are ½ floor above grade. The access is via steps in three locations and a relatively steep ramp at the front (south) side of the building. The great room is wheelchair accessible for retreat groups.
Inside the lodge, we have large ½ bath - wheelchair accessible with toilet grab bars. The bedrooms in the lodge date from the late 1980s and are NOT fully handicap accessible due to space limitations. They do have grab bars at the toilets.
Sorry, the log cabin is not handicap accessible. The only access is via stairs, and internal space is very limited.
Service dogs fit a special category and would be welcome everywhere of course, (we would still need advance notice to accommodate). To make the distinction, a service dog is one that has been specifically trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability. (Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.) Service animals must be harnessed, leashed or tethered and, while not likely, the owner would be responsible for the cost of repair should any damage occur. FAQs about service animals
No specific improvements have been made in any of the buildings for the hearing or sight impaired.
