Meal Information
Although Wisdom House cannot create special menus for individuals, we make every effort to offer alternative salad and vegetable choices as well as some gluten-free foods.

For those with severe food limitations who would like to store their own special food items, guest refrigerators and microwaves are available.
Room Descriptions
A 'shared room' may have 2 people; 3 if requested. 'Private room' is one guest in a room (with bath or with hall bath).

Wisdom House has mainly hall (or central) bathrooms. A very limited number of rooms have connected baths - these rooms are assigned very quickly.
