Spent two nights with a Monday afternoon check-in. Nearby village of Confluence which lives on the tourist dollar makes the minimum effort to adjust their life style to tourist needs. All restaurants except one (Lucky Dog) were closed on Monday. Hardware store which sells fishing licenses and bait closes at 5 PM SHARP. Small market also keeps short hours. We found the Paddler's Lane as advertised-CHARMING. Dan was a most welcoming host! Breakfast was cooked with extra personality added. As other reviews note-there is a constant flow of trains to the immediate front of the inn. We did not find this to be a problem-others might. Also the very comfortable den is too dark to read in the evening. Wireless connection was excellent, as was cell phone service. Inn is very pet friendly-Dan even walked the small dog that other travelers had because they were out touring for extended period. We visited nearby Falling Water and made the trip in about 30 minutes (Dan supplied excellent directions). The river to the rear of inn was outstanding for both trout and bass fishing (a purchased a 3 day tourist license in hardware store for around $35). I used simple cast rod set although many nearby fisherman were fly fishing. We also visited and very much enjoyed nearby Fort Necessity (on US Route 40-about 45 minutes). Purchased a lifetime US Park Service card (62 or older) for $10. PLEASE NOTE the railroad is currently repairing the access road (1/4 mile) from Confluence to the inn. This causes you to drive about 4-5 extra miles to get to Confluence-8AM to 4 PM. PLEASE check with Dan before arriving to check on status of road.
