I can't say enough terrific things about the Manor Inn. We stayed here on a bike trip on the C&O Canal trail and Great Allegheny Passage, so we stayed for one night.
I would say this was perhaps the stay, out of six nights, that most showed off the town that it was in -- Berkeley Springs is delightful -- and also the accommodation of the innkeeper.
Ellen and Wesley bent over backward to make us feel welcome. Berkeley Springs is about 9 miles mostly uphill from the Potomac, which the C&O Canal trail follows, so they told us they had arranged to have our bikes held at a bike shop in Hancock, which is on the river, and they would ferry us up to Berkeley Springs. This was a terrific arrangement in both directions, as it turned out!
The rooms were lovely, and the house was just enormous. In some B&Bs you feel like you're always invading the personal space of the innkeeper, but here, it would've been easy to imagine not seeing Ellen and Wesley at all.
We also had a delightful breakfast of locally sourced foods: sausage, waffles and eggs.
I would also put in a tip for anyone on the C&O Canal trail that Berkeley Springs is sure a better place to stay than Hancock, MD. I mean, we didn't stay there, but it looked like they were about to roll the sidewalks up at 6 when Wesley picked us up to take us up the hill.
