The Property

The Overlook Inn Bed and Breakfast is an “off the beaten path” spot – we are surrounded by and located within designated Wilderness and National Forest areas, which includes our grounds, gardens, property and premises. Our mountainous locale is peaceful and appealing with natural terrain in some outdoor areas, which can be challenging for persons with mobility issues and other disabilities.

The Prince Madoc Room has a ramp that accesses the private entrance to the room and then subsequently the Inn, with wide doors on the private entrance, Inn hallway, and private bathroom doorways. The private bathroom has a walk-in shower with a small lip, a built in shower seat and transfer bars, a toilet that is comfort height with grab bars, a sink with clearance underneath and the right height for a wheelchair, and a large area to maneuver a walker or wheelchair.

The parking lot at the Inn has ample parking and a short path consisting of a paved stone sidewalk leading to The Prince Madoc ramp. Staff is glad to assist with luggage and take you to your room. We do not have a public restroom in our check in area or commons areas that is accessible, due to the historic nature of our Inn. There are no braille signs anywhere in the Inn, but staff is happy to assist and go over menu items. There are descriptions and pictures on our “Rooms + Rates” page for each of our six guest rooms at the Inn. Please refer to this information when considering your stay.

If you have any questions about our accommodations or need more information about the area where the Inn is located, please call us at 706-517-0300 or email us at info@theoverlookinn.com.
