          Are all rooms accessible without using stairs? We have a new-walking toddler in our party and a grandmother with bad knees. Will be interested in two rooms next to each other, without stairs.

          All the rooms are on one floor. There may be a couple of steps at the entrance but don't remember. Its a lovely inn with a very attentive staff.
