Accessibility Statement

Property Accessibility Statement

Hawthorn Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Historic High Street District. This designation does not exempt the Hawthorn Inn from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. Under Title III of the ADA, owners of “public accommodations” must make “readily achievable” changes; that is, changes that can be easily accomplished without much expense. Due to the age and nature of the building and the size and resources of our small business, ADA compliance is a challenge. We assess accessibility features on an ongoing basis.

The Hawthorn Inn is committed to complying with the ADA requirements for hotel rooms as described in 28 CFR §36.302 (e) (1) (ii). We have the following accessible features:

  • First floor guest rooms with limited steps to access the room
    • 6 steps with handrail to enter the Main House
    • 3 steps with handrail to access walk way to Carriage House, then 2 single steps into Carriage House
  • Walk-in showers with handheld showerhead
  • Portable shower seat is available
  • ADA-compliant toilets, 17 to 19 inches from floor to seat
  • Grab bar near toilet
  • Raised toilet seat is available on request
  • Accessible meeting/dining room in Main House
    • Breakfast can be delivered to first floor rooms
  • Closed Captioning TV option
  • Two parking spaces adjacent to guest entrance

Website Accessibility Statement

We have designed our website to be accessible for impaired users to see, navigate, interact and understand the content provided as per the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA (WCAG 2.0 AA).

We have tested the functionality of this website with the achecker.ca tool and the Google Chrome Accessibility Audit tool. We have also tested keyboard only functionality so that people who use screen readers or can’t use a mouse are able to navigate through the website pages efficiently.

We will continue to make every effort to meet evolving accessibility standards.

As we continue to improve our website functionality, we appreciate your concerns and suggestions. We welcome impaired users to share accessibility issues you may find.
