We stayed with Bill (Darlene was away on family business) in October 2015 whilst cycling the C and O from Cumberland to DC. Bill's breakfast, muffins, biscuits and welcome are fabulous. This is the most luxurious and yet welcoming B and B I've ever stayed in. Highly recommended. Tip for cyclists: follow the directions and cycle around to the back... More

This was my third visit to the 1828 Trail Inn and, as usual, it was wonderful. The house is an elegant 19th century building, furnishings are gracious, the breakfast is excellent and hearty (perfect if you will be spending the day on the bike trail) and the owners give you a warm welcome.

My husband had been here before when cycling the C & O Canal path and raved so we decided to come and visit. The welcome was warm and friendly, the house delightful and festive for Christmas. Our hosts were helpful and informative. Everything was spotless and comfortable. The breakfast - and I am not really much of a breakfast person... More

This is an excellent B&B. The Inn is very clean - in fact, its immaculate. Darlene is an awesome host and Bill's breakfast and muffins are to die for ! We will definately stay there again next year for geocaching, biking the trail and kayaking the river.

My husband and I stayed at the 1828 Trail Inn last month when we bicycled from Washington DC to Pittsburgh. Darlene and Bill are gracious hosts and they had everything two tired bike riders could want. We arrived too late for the cheese and crackers, but there were homemade brownies and cold drinks waiting for us when we got in.... More

Stayed in the railroad room and it had everything you could want. A balcony, nice bathroom, comfy bed. They have a washer and dryer for you to use. Breakfast was good. The innkeepers were extremely helpful.

Came from new York to ride the rail trail and towpath. This was home base. A beautiful place to stay. Darlene and Bill are wonderful hosts, and man can Bill cook breakfast. We spent three nights here. This is one of the nicest B&B's we have stayed in. Loved talking with Darlene and Bill every afternoon. They made my wife... More

The 1828 Trail Inn rates up there with the best B&Bs. Old, old house, nicely restored. Clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are superb and the innkeepers are great. Hancock isn't very big. It's claims to fame are the Maryland Rail Trail and the C&O Canal towpath. And one thing more - The 2824 Trail Inn.

We stayed at the 1828 Trail Inn in late June and had a fantastic stay! Bill and Darlene were wonderful hosts, making us feel comfortable. The room was very spacious with its own large bath attached.
