Banks Bed and Breakfast is committed to making its property as accessible to all guests regardless of abilities or disabilities. However, due to the fact that Banks Bed and Breakfast contains less than five rooms for rent and is the residence of the proprietor of the establishment, it is not covered under the American with Disabilities Act Title III Regulations as a “public accommodation.” (Place of lodging, except for an establishment located within a facility that contains not more than five rooms for rent or hire and that act. 1991 Title III Sec. 36.104 Definitions)
It is, however, our goal to make our property as accessible as possible to all guests.
Please see our amenities list below:
We provide a ramp into our historic home accessible from one paved parking space and brick pathway.
Inside the house many of the public room entries have raised thresholds, and all of our doorways through public spaces are at least 32 inches wide.
We provide a public restroom (5’ 6” by 7’ 11”) with a 34” entry door, level threshold, grab bars, a right hand flush toilet, and a hanging sink.
One modified rental room is located downstairs. Once inside the house the thresholds for this downstairs room are zero entry. A pocket door allows entry to the bathroom. This ensuite contains a zero entry shower containing a built in seat that is 41” from the shower nozzle, the adjustable shower nozzle can be moved down and pulled off of the shower bar. The two shower grab bars are at a height of 32”. The toilet has two grab bars for support and a right hand flush. The pedestal sink has a 7” center support that flares out to 8” at the bottom. Towels and amenities are provided on lower level shelves and towel posts are provided at different heights throughout the room. The bedroom contains a king size Dream Cloud mattress the top of which is 27” off the floor. The bed is surrounded by four feet of clear floor space on the sides and bottom, excluding the space taken by the nightstands. Hooks are located for hanging items at different heights as this room does not have a closet. An open detail dresser allows for easy clothing storage. The television can be controlled by a remote control.
