Is the Outlier Inn accessible?
During the residency, we have access to the upstairs of the Main House, tiny houses, geodesic domes, trailer, and all outdoor amenities.

The Outlier Inn is inaccessible, and can be difficult to locate. The Outlier Inn does not have step-free access and lacks ADA compliance. The space is not wheelcair accessible, and most doorways are narrow, including the doors to the outhouses. Property grounds are uneven and hilly, and each structure has a stoop or stairs. All lodging has 5-6 step porches and 10-12 step staircases inside.

There are all gender outhouses and restrooms throughout the property. The outdoor restroom is a compost toilet. The indoor restroom is in the Main House and requires getting up to the front porch, 5 steps, and a flight on stairs in the house, 12 steps. The indoor bathroom in the Main House has a beautiful jet bathtub that we encourage you to enjoy.

The restroom in the trailer is not a usable toilet. The outdoor shower and bathtub receive the hottest water on the property.

The shower and bathtubs are stocked with Living Libations and LUSH Cosmetics products. Use as you wish, and be sure to wash your hands for a minimum of 30 seconds regularly.

The Outlier Inn is a 12 acre bucolic farm and community space in Woodridge, NY South Catskills occupied Munsee Lenape territory. It is owned and operated by a white man named Joshua Druckman. Activation Residency has worked with Joshua for the past three years.
