lodging help??

Looking for a place to stay in Manchester area that would have a walk-in shower for my mom. She walks, but can't step over the tub to get into the shower. Didn't know it would be this hard to find. Can someone help??

I would suggest calling the Chamber of Commerce/Visitors Bureau. They should be able to help you!

Thank....I called them.....no help...or interest in helping for that matter. Said they "really don't have any idea on limited mobility access ANYWHERE.....wow......ADA would have a blast with this chamber.....too bad.

Any other ideas??

I'm shocked that the Chamber was so unhelpful.

Have you called any places? I would try the Equinox. They are the biggest place in town and might have somthing.

Most of our lodging in rural parts of Vermont pre-dates the ADA requirements. It is an unfortunate downside for persons with disabilities, but in most cases it is nearly impossible for a 100+ year old building to come into compliance with the ADA.

However, Manchester has a lot of lodging options and I think you'll need to call around to find what you need. I think you'll find most of the Inn owners to be very helpful when you do call. I did a quick search and noted that this place advertises a handicapped accessible room (Room 27). http://www.wilburton.com/

And one more place offering a handicapped accessible room. www.manchesterview.com/amenities.htm#handicap

Finally, Stratton is not far from Manchester and they have newer hotel/condo type lodging and undoubtedly have something that would work for you. stratton.com/reservations/…lodging.search

Manchester View is a great place. I didn't know about the handicapped room. Good information.

I was going to suggest stratton as well since it is all new construction. I also think you will find many places with plain old regular showers if you called.

The Inn at Manchester is wonderful and it advertises the Green Briar room in the Carriage House as being fully wheelchair-accessible, so you could call them and ask, if you haven't already:
