Accessibility Friendly Home: The Birch Bower

We are proud to share our home, The Birch Bower, with you, as a luxury lakefront home that is wheelchair and mobility friendly! You can see the full home listing here, but we wanted to share a few of our favorite features with you.


Flat entry to the house from all sides, with gentle ramp to the back patio and snow-melt in the concrete slab on the front entry porch. 

Wide rooms, wide doorways, and hallways 

This bedroom on the ground floor can accommodate those who use a wheelchair or walker, and includes grab bars in the wheel-in shower and around the commode, as well as a wheel-under sink and a pivoting mirror, and a teak shower bench.

ADA-grade path from the patio through the forest down to the dock 

Flat access to the dock 



Please also note that the ADA-grade path to the lake does not give access to the fire pit – the Maryland Department of Natural Resources regulates the area directly around the lake and permits only one path through the buffer strip. 

If you have any questions or would like more information on The Birch Bower’s accessibility features, please give us a call at 301-387-3373. This is a truly magical home with tons of thoughtful details— and we can’t wait to share it with you.
