We're recognized as a national and international leader in Universal Design.

All of our facilities are planned to be used by all people regardless of ability level without adaptation or specialized design.


The amphitheater is a perfect example of Universal Design in the outdoors. The stage has a lighting and assistive listening system. There is a fire ring in the center that is perfect for campfire singing. The Amphitheatre can comfortably accommodate up to 200 people. Cost: $115 per day

Check-out and Clean-up

All lodging and meeting facilities should be left in clean and acceptable conditions upon departure. This requires you to remove all trash to designated areas and to leave the facilities in the condition you found them.

Your event coordinator will meet with you 15 minutes before your departure to hear about your visit and check the facilities. If the conditions of the facility require extra cleaning or maintenance work, your group may be billed $40 per hour for these services.

Confirm Your Event's Details

It's almost time for your group to visit Bradford Woods! Before you arrive, your event coordinator will contact you to verify the some details and finalize your arrangements.

  • Submit your final numbers. If your group is staying overnight, we'll also need to know the number of male/female participants and chaperones to help you determine the most comfortable sleeping arrangements. If we don't receive this number, we'll use the number on your contract.
  • If we are providing meals for your group, menu selections are also due at least 14 days prior to your event this time.
  • If your group has a planned agenda, please send a copy to your event coordinator so we can verify arrangements have been made for your group's activities.
  • Schedule a check-in time with your event coordinator. He/she will walk through the facilities with you, review your event arrangements, review safety and emergency procedures, and provide emergency contact information. If you realize you will be early or late for your check-in time, please contact your event coordinator

Refer to your event contract for more information about deposits, confirmed numbers, and cancellations.

Kitchen Rental

Guests who rent the Cross Keys Inn, Griffith Hall, or the Manor House may rent the industrial kitchen facilities in these buildings for an additional charge of $100. Since these facilities have commercial kitchens, guests must make arrangements for an orientation session prior to their event.

Guests must follow safe food-handling and kitchen usage procedures posted in our facilities, including the use of approved disinfectants in kitchen cleaning and appropriate dishwashing technique.
