The Stanford House is a hostel operating within Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Ohio, located about a ten minute drive from the Boston Visitor Center. The classic historical white wood panel structure is surrounded by lovely trees. One handicapped parking spot is closest to the accessible entrance. The check-in office is right there too with a paved pathway and barrier-free entrance.
Upon check-in guests are given a brief orientation, including important rules especially cleaning policies at check-out. Though the two-story house was not originally designed to be wheelchair accessible, modern renovations has given more access to the building. Ramps lead from the parking spot to the small front porch and inside to the main floor with beautiful wood floors. On this ground floor is one wheelchair accessible room, living area, dining room, and a full kitchen. A first-aid kit is available in the kitchen. The kitchen is industrial size with the ability to serve a large group of people, but no specific modifications have been made; most will still be able to use the kitchen.
From the rose wallpaper to the iron end tables, the Stanford House is surrounded by cozy charm. Reservations are required, please call (330) 657-2909 or visit the website for more information.
