Because Sarah Winchester had severe arthritis, most of the stairs on this tour are ideal for the elderly. There is one flight of regular stairs though and tour is not wheelchair accessible.

If you go at night time perhaps they will let you bring your own flashlight -Regular size. Unless everyone is willing to shine their light at the same time in the same area, you will miss a lot.

If you go during the day, you should be able to find parking in the lot, or in the main Winchester House lot across the street. After 7pm, I bet it gets much more crowded in both!
