Credit Cards (Visa, Master Card, Discover or AMEX), Gift Cards/Certificates, and Checks accepted. No credit card refunds. Consideration of Travel Insurance will protect your vacation investment.

Use Of Old Rittenhouse Gift Cards/Gift Certificates (GC)

Gift Cards/Certificates (GC) may be used to make Lodging/Event Reservations. A GC number/value and valid credit card are needed to secure the reservation, but the credit card is not charged due to having the GC.

Cancellation Policy

A $25/room cancellation fee applies for cancellations/changes up to 10-days prior to arrival (30-day prior for Events). If reservation was secured with a GC, it can be applied toward cancellation fee, and/or the balance charged to the credit card provided. Advance payments for cancellations/changes less than 10-days prior to arrival are non-refundable (30-days prior for Events). If reservation was secured with a GC, it can be applied toward 1-night’s stay for the room(s) reserved, and/or the balance collected from the credit card provided. With less than 48-hours notice, the GC may be used toward full payment of the entire stay, and/or the balance collected from the credit card provided.

Saturday-Only Stays

We do not require a 2-night minimum stay, with the exception of Special Event Weekends and some Holidays. However, Saturday-only stays incur an additional $35 fee.

Extra Guests

Room rates are based on double occupancy. In rooms where space permits, additional guests are welcome for $40/person per night.

Travel Insurance

Please note that the Rittenhouse Inn is not responsible for unused rooms due to late or canceled airline flights, family emergencies, threat of bad weather and other travel-related mishaps, or for changes in plans which shorten your stay. Vacation Insurance is available from several providers online to inexpensively protect you against covered unexpected events. We recommend Travel Guard.

Gratuities

20% Server Gratuity is added to dining for parties of 6 or more guests, and is otherwise left to guest discretion. For Special Event packages, a fixed gratuity is added to the package price. This amount varies by length of stay and number of meals included in the package and will be quoted when you make your reservation. Consideration for housekeeping and helpful staff are appreciated.

Accessibility

Old Rittenhouse Inn is committed to facilitating the accessibility and usability of this website for all people with disabilities. We will continue to implement the relevant portions of the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA (WCAG 2.0 AA) or such other standards as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). On a periodic basis, our website will be tested with assistive technology.

In addition, we work to ensure every guest who wishes to visit can do so regardless of their physical abilities. Among the ways we comply with ADA:

  • We ensure that individuals with disabilities can make reservations during the same hours and in the same manner as individuals without disabilities.
  • We have identified and described accessible features in our bed and breakfast and guest rooms in detail to allow individuals with disabilities to determine whether our B&B meets their needs.
  • We ensure that accessible guest rooms are held for use by individuals with disabilities until all other guest rooms of that type have been rented.
  • We guarantee that the specific accessible guest rooms, once reserved, are held for the reserving customer. We make reasonable efforts with third-party reservation systems to make accessible rooms available through at least some of these services and they must provide these third-party services with information concerning the accessible features of the hotel and the accessible rooms.
  • Guests with legitimate service animals as defined in the ADA will be provided access to all areas of the inn afforded to those without service animals.

Accessible Accommodations

  • Rooms VIII & IX are both located on the ground floor, and these are the only 1st floor rooms among any of our properties. Private baths in both suites offer a tub/shower combination as well as grab bars in and near the tub/shower and toilet.
  • We offer toilet risers and bath chairs upon request.
  • There is a ramp from the parking lot- with designated handicap parking – to the front porch and entry of the Old Rittenhouse Inn. There is one small step into the building, but we do have a portable ramp that can be maneuvered for entry.
  • Once inside, there is accessibility to the dining room, public washroom, and both rooms VIII and IX.
  • We offer a wake-up knock/call as well as assistance with luggage from the car to your room.

If you require other items please call us directly at (715) 779-5111 prior to your arrival, and we will be happy to work with you to assure a pleasant and comfortable stay.

Please be aware that our efforts are ongoing. You may email us at frontdesk@rittenhouseinn.com or call us 24/7 at (715) 779-5111 with questions or concerns regarding ADA accessibility, including issues accessing the website or with questions regarding the accessibility and personal needs of the various rooms.
