About our Property

The Surfside Inn, aka “The Dill Cottages” was built in 1880 & is reflective of the typical houses built during that era. Present day building codes regulate new construction & changes to existing homes, but due to the Inn’s age it is “grandfathered” at its present previously constructed condition & maintained as such.  For this reason, the Inn has no compliant ADA rooms as significant alterations would impact the historic features of the property and necessary changes to provide accessibility are currently not readily achievable for both the physical building & the surrounding landscaping.


Consistent with the prevailing architecture of that period the Inn has steep interior staircases that are narrow with multiple levels, narrow hallways & room doors that create complications for wheelchair access & may provide some restrictions to certain guests depending on physical abilities. We would be pleased to communicate accessibility specifics when details are requested & do not hesitate to call if clarification is needed.


Some specifics to know when assessing whether our Inn is suitable to your needs:
•    We have mixed gravel and paved parking areas for both general parking & office guest check-in.
•    4 exterior steps to provide access to the front door of the inn.
•    The Inn has (6) 3rd floor (9) 2nd floor & (6) 1st floor accommodations. We do not have an elevator. 
•    All ensuite bathrooms have narrow doors with 3-5” shower curb thresholds. Some first-floor rooms may be suitable for some guests with disabilities who are not requiring wheelchair access.
