My husband and I first stayed at the inn in September of 2012 while biking from Pittsburgh to D.C. and loved it. We decided we wanted to go back to the area and visit the attractions you just have to pass by while biking to your next destination and we knew exactly where we were going to stay. We were... More

Our experience with Darlene at 1828 Trail Inn has been exemplary. From our first call to inquire about reservations until we checked out after our stay, she was incredibly helpful. She advised us of the Western Maryland Rail Trail that parallels the C&O Towpath for the last twelve miles into Hancock from the west. It was a welcome relief to... More

We discovered the 1828 Trail Inn during our bike trip from Pittsburgh to Washington DC in 2009. To our delight, the Trail Inn (within easy walking distance of the WMRT and the C&O Towpath) provided generous accommodations. We stayed in a spacious, beautifully appointed, second floor room which overlooks the C&O Canal as well as the surrounding parkland. Even the... More

Stayed here on our bike ride on the C&O Canal with two friends. Darlene and Bill were very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were large with lots of extras: sitting rooms, jacuzzi tubs and more. From a biking perspective, they had lots of amenities including hose, towels, secure storage and laundry. The breakfast in the morning was fulfilling and balanced... More

Very beautiful inn. Wonderful service with extras....tea, cookies, cheese, crackers out in the afternoon. On site laundry was very welcome. Great breakfast even with extra blueberry muffins to go. We were the only cyclists staying there the night we were there but the innkeeper was very a knowledgeable in general about the wants and needs of cyclists.

This is a great place to stay. Bill and Darlene are super friendly and helpful. We were biking for the C&O Canal and had a medical emergency. Bill drove the injured to the hospital and stayed with him until he was released, while Darlene welcomed the rest of us, made us comfortable, and made sure a local restaurant could accommodate...

This is a wonderful and historic B&B located near the C&O Canal Trail and the Maryland Rail Trail. The proprietors pay great attention to detail, including a garage to store our bikes in, a bike wash, a washer and dryer, drinks and snacks. The rooms are very clean, quaint and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding. And our hosts, Darlene and Bill,... More

We've been to many B&Bs and this one would be the top of the list. Bill and Darlene are perfect hosts. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts delicious. The many special touches, attention to detail, and warm hospitality make this place a winner in our book.

Great hosts with clean classy rooms. There is a garage for bike storage and the bike trail is directly across the street. Location is about midway on the Maryland Rail Trail so you can do half one day and the other half the next day, and visit Fort Frederick at the end of the trail. Bill cooks up a great... More

This was a great place to stay while biking the trail. Hose to wash off bikes and a garage for safety. We stayed in the Railroad Room and it even had a jacuzzi tub which was wonderful after a long day of biking. The innkeepers had a washing machine, water and drinks and also snacks and brownies.
