Perfect location off trail at Rockwood entrance. Entered house and was directed to make yourself comfortable. Ice tea in frig, big porch with swing, and a note that told you that breakfast was at 8am. We never saw owners until breakfast the next day. Bike rack out front is where we parked and locked our bikes. Didn't like that much... More

Without Len and his wife, the Rockwood stopover would be like ALL THE REST on the GAP trail - without any services! The Bike shop is awesome, and when Len is there, service is without peer. They are farmers, and the bike shop & b&b are sidelines for them so they are not always there. Twice now, they have saved... More

I recently stayed at the Rockwood Trail House with my husband and 3 friends. We arrived after a long 58 miles of biking and found the Trail House to be absolutely what the doctor ordered. It's right on the side of the trail and very appealing with its porches and country-style decorations. We were the only guests that night so... More

Great location. Friendly owners - former dairy owners in the area that rehabbed this old place about 15 years ago. Adjacent bike shop to story bike. See my other comments under Connellsville Bed & Breakfast.

You cannot miss the Trail House and its adjacent bike shop if you are cycling the GAP, it abuts the trail! We loved that the town is so safe that doors can be left open and bikes unlocked! We let ourselves in and enjoyed having the whole place to ourselves for a time! The owners left a plate of cookies,... More

The RTH is conveniently close to the trail, and despite the fact that no one is there to greet you when you arrive we found the details of our stay to be easily understood from the hand-written notes that Lynn and Debbie left for us. As has been noted by others, you should not expect "fine dining" in Rockwood -... More

I was reading some of the past reviews, and I have to say that the issues people mentioned have NOT been resolved. Our group arrived at the B&B around 5:00 p.m. after biking in the rain all day. No one around to greet us and no notes to explain how things work. Bike shop was closed and no hose to... More

Comfortable and literally on the GAP trail. All comforts of home including washer drier. As with any bnb on GAP trail, bring ear plugs since CSX freight trains run in same valley and sound horns through the night. Beds good. Fresh clean linens. No fuss, no muss. Recommended.

This bike shop has unpredictable hours and when open the business takes advantage of being a convenience to cyclist. Blew two tubes and nearly crashed on the trail. Arrived at the shop looking to check tire inflation and buy 2 replacement tubes. Cost = .50 to use air pump + $8/tube.

Although the B&B itself is nice (and the breakfast is very good), there is no way to get any sleep at night because the trains run by the house (about 300 feet away, with full whistles blowing) every 30 minutes for most of the night. Because this house is also on the main road, you also get trucks running by... More
