It rained torrents throughout the night we stayed at the Lodge and we were certainly glad to be off the C&O trail, warm, dry, well-fed, and in our own rooms. We enjoyed a welcoming beer on arrival, great advice on where to eat since, not surprising, Bill's was closed, and strawberry shortcake for desert on our return. Like other reviewers,... More

We had 2 rooms supposedly with a "shared bathroom". How is it shared when it is entirely in one room? So if that's not your room, you have to go into your neighbor's room and hope that you can get the magnets on the folding door to all stick. On my trip from Pittsburgh to D.C. this was the worst...

Proprietor a most interesting character; very entertaining. We spent more than the usual time because we arrived early & one of us stayed later than normal the next day. Host was very accommodating. Rooms were clean & well furnished. If you like TV or internet, forget it; location is a bit remote. A great find for cyclists & their support... More

Stayed here in July as we biked down the C and O, and glad I did. There are few lodging options in Little Orleans, and this one fits the bill. A one time hostel, the place has B and B feel and service. Other reviews are accurate in their description of the level of hospitality: guests that arrived shortly before... More

Little Orleans Lodge is a one-of-a-kind operation that defies categorization. Sort of exactly halfway between a B&B and a motel. Steve and the two other gentlemen running this place are gracious hosts with a wealth of stories between them, and they serve up a world-class breakfast. Please understand before coming here that you will not be getting your own room... More

Steve was able to arrange for a shuttle from DC to above Paw Paw for us and our bikes on June 11. We were going down to DC to Alexandria. We learned a lot about the area on our ride up and given more information about the C&O Canal. We had a lovely room on the second floor and cold... More

My wife and I stayed at Little Orleans Lodge on our bike trip from DC to Pittsburgh in early June, because of very bad weather and wide spread talk of a predicted approaching tornado with high winds and giant hail coming from the west. The lodge is 1/2 mile from the trail, after finding Bill's place all locked up. Our... More

Little Orleans Lodge is a quaint lodge just off of the C&O Canal with a very friendly owner and caretaker who took good care of us while biking the C&O Canal. We enjoyed our stop into "town" at the one and only "Bill's Place," and came back for an evening on one of the outdoor decks. We enjoyed Steve and... More

A friend and I were cycling the C&O Towpath and booked this lodge as it is close to the trail. No one likes to add miles at the end of the day to get somewhere! We weren’t quite sure what to expect in a town with a population of under 50 people. We were pleasantly surprised to find a clean,... More
