Hello Tallybiker, We're so glad you were able to stop by on your journey. Thank you for your business! I'm sorry to hear that you felt the bunkhouse area resembled a junk yard. I'm not sure why you felt that way as there isn't any...More

I slept in the bunkhouse after biking from Harpers Ferry to Hancock on the C&O Towpath. For $15, you get a roof over the head, screened porch to keep the bugs out, an outdoor shower, and port a pot. The bunk beds have foam camping...More
