I am not sure about the discount or the no stair access room. I do know that they have a no stair access door to the facility, an elevator, and handicap accessible rooms. Please give the staff a call as they are more knowledgeable and will answer all your questions.

"Views are mountain landscape and pretty much, no bad ones."
"Corner rooms on the 2nd floor are worth the cost, especially the one on the front porch."
"One of their rental "cabins" (homes!!)"
"Wait staff will deliver breakfast to your room"
"Besides rooms in the Inn they have 2&3 bedroom rental cabins on the property as well as on the river."
