After a tiring day-long trek from Cumberland, my husband showed up tired and covered in mud. Bill helped us hose down (selves included) and stow our bikes securely in a clean, accessible shed. The Inn itself is lovingly decorated and well-appointed -- including a washer and dryer! Bill recommended a nice restaurant across the street, which was very welcome for... More

We stayed here on a recent ride of the C&O. This place is nice! The breakfast was great and the front porch overlooks the trail. Accommodations we nice and had a private feel. The innkeepers were friendly and recommended place in Hancock that we could eat. We highly recommend this place!

My friends and I biked the Great Allegheny Passage and the C&O and the 1828 Trail Inn was by far our favorite B&B on our trip. Darlene and Bill are excellent hosts and extremely pleasant people. They have thought of everything for the cyclists, including washer and dryer (free) easy bike storage, a hose for cleaning off your bike, even... More

This B & B is certainly one of the nicest on the trail and one of the best we have stayed at before. Great location, wonderfully furnished and gracious hosts, however, what makes this Inn exceptional are the proprietors - Bill & Darlene - - who go above and beyond and are just very good people. We unfortunately had an... More

I recently enjoyed my second overnight stay in as many years at the 1828 Trail Inn in Hancock, MD.This impeccable cozy inn is located just one block from the trail. The delightful owners live on the premises and really have their act together in catering to touring cyclists. There is a washer and dryer on site for removing the Towpath... More

We stayed at the Trail Inn enroute to DC on a bike trip. Rooms were clean and comfortable within this beautiful old house. We were welcomed by the scent of baked goods which turned out later to be homemade muffins. Bill and Darlene are very nice people and very accommodating providing a shed for our bikes and access to a... More

We stayed at the 1828 for one night during an 11 day bike trip from Pittsburgh to Washington along the GAP and C and O trails. The 1828 Trail Inn will bring you back to a time of gracious hospitality. The bedroom was large, and en-suite bathroom well equipped. Decor reflected an older style from when the town was more...

Stayed two nights while taking day trips on the WMRT and the C&O Canal tow path. The house is lovely, and the hosts are very nice. We enjoyed the huge front porch. We stayed in the Doctor's Office, which had a comfortable king bed and a spacious bathroom. The only downside was noise from the street - there was some... More

This was the nicest place we stayed on a 5-day bike trip from Pittsburgh to Shepherdstown. It's close to both of the bike trails that run through town and has secure bike storage as well as a place to wash and work on bikes if needed. Our rooms (we were two couples) were both large and both had an outside... More

My husband and I rode up from Williamsport to Hancock and spent one night at the 1828. We were the only bikers that had reservations for the night and there was a newly wed couple checking in later on. I was very nice and quiet. We had a nice long conversation with Darlene. Very lovely and sweet lady. Bill and... More
