Biking the GAP and C and O Canal
May 21, 2013 by: Jill C from Gainesville, Florida
Very beautiful inn. Wonderful service with extras....tea, cookies, cheese, crackers out in the afternoon. On site laundry was very welcome. Great breakfast even with extra blueberry muffins to go. We were the only cyclists staying there the night we were there but the innkeeper was very a knowledgeable in general about the wants and needs of cyclists.
Best place to stay on the C&0 Canal trail
May 19, 2013 by: JonShavor from Fuquay Varina, North Carolina
This is a great place to stay. Bill and Darlene are super friendly and helpful. We were biking for the C&O Canal and had a medical emergency. Bill drove the injured to the hospital and stayed with him until he was released, while Darlene welcomed the rest of us, made us comfortable, and made sure a local restaurant could accommodate us. The rooms were very comfortable and breakfast was first rate. I recommend this B&B to all.
The Best Biking Hosts
May 19, 2013 by: djhiggins from Stanardsville, Virginia
This is a wonderful and historic B&B located near the C&O Canal Trail and the Maryland Rail Trail. The proprietors pay great attention to detail, including a garage to store our bikes in, a bike wash, a washer and dryer, drinks and snacks. The rooms are very clean, quaint and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding. And our hosts, Darlene and Bill, went above and beyond to help and transport me to/from the Berkley Springs emergency room for some unexpected treatment! Bill and Darlene really care about their guests and they will do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable.
Would definitely return!

We've been to many B&Bs and this one would be the top of the list. Bill and Darlene are perfect hosts. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts delicious. The many special touches, attention to detail, and warm hospitality make this place a winner in our book.
Excellent B&B for Bikers
Oct 25, 2012 by: Stan C from Aston, Pennsylvania
Great hosts with clean classy rooms. There is a garage for bike storage and the bike trail is directly across the street. Location is about midway on the Maryland Rail Trail so you can do half one day and the other half the next day, and visit Fort Frederick at the end of the trail. Bill cooks up a great breakfast and there are a few restaurants within walking distance for dinner. I will probably stay there again the next time we ride that trail or are in the area.
