Special Needs

Special Needs

Physical accessibility: We have done our best to make the facility more accessible with various improvements, and more are planned for the future. Our front entrance is ramped for wheelchair access, our main conference room and chapel are fully accessible and there is an accessible restroom on the main floor. There is an elevator to the lower level, and by a circuitous route, there is wheelchair access to the dining room. All guest rooms have support bars at the toilet. Use of the shower requires transferring from the wheelchair to a bath stool (available on request).

Dietary Needs: Our kitchen staff is equipped to satisfy the needs of guests with dietary restrictions, as long as they are notified in advance of the needs. We can accommodate vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, sugar free, lactose intolerant or other dietary needs and are happy to address these accommodations.

Mobility on the grounds: For use of our over 3 miles of trails and features throughout the 120 acres we have a golf cart with seating for up to four adults, and our staff is happy to transport guests with special needs to these features, or to and from the lower parking lot to the main entrance.

The Retreat Center was constructed in 1967, prior to the emphasis on accessibility as prescribed in the American Disabilities Act (ADA), thus it presents some challenges for accommodating guests with physical disabilities.
