Recently my cycling partner and I spent four glorious fall days on West Virginia's premier rail-trail along the Greenbrier River. Looking back, I'd say that the beautiful people we met even surpassed the spectacular scenery. Topping our list of new acqaintances are Nelson and Andrea, our hosts at the Old Clark Inn in Marlinton, WV. Literally a stone's throw fom the trail, the Old Clark Inn provided three quiet restfull evenings, a variety of morning pre-trail nourish-ment, secure covered bicycle parking, and bargain weekday rates which enabled us to spread our vacation dollars to some of the area's other beautiful attractions. On our last day, halfway between Marlinton and the southern trailhead, we were horrified to discover that we had forgot-ten the truck keys in our room at the Old Clark Inn. Nelson drove 100 miles roundtrip on the very curvy highway 219 in the dark to bring our keys to the trailhead! You can't get this kind of personal care at the large hotel chains......or anywhere that I know of. WE WILL BE BACK!
