This spacious and clean lodging is located right on the C&O Canal Towpath. The hostess is engaging and extremely friendly. We had the whole place to ourselves for the evening which was great. There were bowls of snacks for us and lots of cold water. Our bikes were locked in the basement for the evening. I would have given five... More

Hi James, Sorry you didn't know about the rest of the food available. We had cereal and fruit out for you to take advantage of but in the future I'll make up a menu so that you will know exactly what is available. Also thanks for your kind words about our place. We will do a better job of informing... More

After cycling 51 miles from Shepherdstown, we were glad to easily find this lovely Inn. The owners do not live here, and we had the place to ourselves on a Thursday night. Our room (#1) was very large with twin beds, the mattresses and linens were good quality. Our bathroom was large as well, with big windows that looked out... More

Riverrun is located in Hancock about 60 miles or roughly 1/3 of the way from Cumberland to Washington, D.C. which is a perfect for a 3 day ride covering the entire C & O Towpath. We were met by our host who offered a welcome cup of hot tea, a great deal of local knowledge and interesting conversation including the... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. This is not the doyle and your grandmother's antiques type of B&B. They have great snacks. Perfect Common Room and friendly hosts. Breakfast was a little basic. Bread, hard boiled eggs, and jam.

Sorry for the unsatisfactory breakfast and thanks for your kind words about our B&B. I am not sure how you missed out on the rest of our usual breakfast offerings such as: the fresh fruit, cereal, juice, cheese, muffins, toast, coffee and tea but remind us if you come again and we will be sure that you have a wide...

If you’re interested in biking the Western MD Rail Trail, this B&B is perfect. Located at an access point midway along the trail, you can choose to bike the entire way or only half. A good bike shop is just down the street if your bike should need service. There is a lovely view of the canal from both the... More

Stayed one night. Could not have asked for a better location. We arrived muddy and tired. The opportunity to wash and secure our bikes, get a hot shower and wash our clothes was great. We also had a great dinner at Buddy Lou's (one block away) . They were open till 8:30 on a Sunday night. I recommend the crab... More

We stayed here while biking the C&O Canal and it was probably our favorite place over the whole trip. The location is literally right on the canal and it's very close to restaurants for dinner. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and breakfast was a treat. They had a washer and dryer we were free to use and... More

Riverrun is located in Hancock between the C&O Canal and the Western MD Rail Trail. The Riverrun is a historic building beautifully renovated with a great story. We found the Riverrun geared for the cyclists offering bike wash, locked bike storage, full kitchen access (lots of food), and even a laundry. The rooms we very clean and nicely appointed. We...

Riverrun is located across the C&O Canal from the towpath - you'll see it as you enter Hancock. So the location couldn't be better. Susan welcomed us warmly. We were able to hose off our bikes (and ourselves) immediately, which was terrific, since we were caked with mud. Our room was comfortable, clean, and had everything we would want or... More
