Handicap Accessible Lodging for Family Events

Weddings, family reunions, and birthdays just aren’t the same without all of the members of the family, regardless of mobility challenges. Finding handicap accessible lodging can add an additional layer of challenge to the burden of planning a large family reunion, wedding, or celebration. As such, Bella Vista is thrilled to share that recent property improvements have allowed us to start offering handicap accessible lodging and improved handicap access for our outdoor events and weddings. These improvements will add value for our guests who are able to celebrate life’s most special moments with grandparents, parents, and children in tow.

Handicap Accessible Lodging at Bella Vista Estate

Bella Vista Estate is a private lodging and event venue nestled in the mountains above beautiful  Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Our estate is rented exclusively to one large group at a time for weddings, family reunions, retreats, and other celebrations. Bella Vista can accommodate up to 28 individuals in shared and private rooms in multiple lodge buildings on the property. We are thrilled to offer improved handicap accessible lodging in the Lower Cottage. The recently renovated Lower Cottage features a bedroom and bathroom widened to accommodate wheelchairs, walkers, or canes in the space. From here guests have access to a completely modernized, fully stocked kitchen, a comfortable living area, and a full bathroom.

Handicap Accessible Outdoor Event Space

Inviting all of the members of the family to your special events truly fulfills the intention of Bella Vista Estate; unforgettable moments happen when the people you love most are there to make them with you. We are constantly making improvements around the estate and are excited to share that the outdoor event space area is now handicap accessible. This means family members in wheelchairs or utilizing other mobility equipment can attend outdoor wedding ceremonies and other celebrations. Family members can enjoy 180-degree views of the surrounding mountain landscape from the accessible outdoor event space.

Are There Parts of the Estate That Are Not Accessible?

Yes, there are parts of the estate that are not completely handicap accessible at this time. We are always working on the estate and hope to see more accessibility improvements happening soon. As of now, there are still several steps on the interior and exterior of the Main Lodge that cannot be circumnavigated. For family members that can traverse a few steps with assistance, this will not be an issue, but there are no ramp alternatives for wheelchair-bound individuals.
