We had a great experience staying at this b&b on our bicycle trip from Pittsburgh to DC. It is right along the GAP trail. We had a friendly welcome and staff was gracious and accommodating our entire stay. There was plenty of outside seating, from the front porch to the outside bar/breakfast area. Breakfast was one of the best parts... More

We stopped here for a night during a recent ride on the GAP to Cumberland. It is very well located (maybe 50ft from the trail). Rob greeted us and gave us the history of the place. A restaurant, bike shop and well-stocked drugstore is only a few minutes walk. The room and bed were very comfortable and we had drinks... More

Finally managed to stay at the Bright Morning on my third GAP trip. (One cancelled, one re-sequenced and made shorter.) The location is perfect, the best of any lodging at which I've stayed on GAP and C&O trips. It is not even a half-minute's ride from the trail. At the end of a long day with considerable mud on the... More

The rooms were clean and well maintained, and we had a lovely time on the patio chatting with other cyclists and the owners. Even though West Newton is only 35 ish miles from Pittsburgh, I would recommend staying here the first night (instead of riding farther), as it allowed us to relax and settle into our trip.

We had a lovely stay at Bright Morning. Rob greeted us like family and took a great interest in our ride and our bikes. We stayed in the Tower Room which was spacious and warm with a very nice king size bed and large bath. We particularly enjoyed the patio with jazz playing. They served us wine and we had... More

We were on a bike trip from DC to Pittsburgh and made our reservation here ahead without knowing a lot about it. We arrived on a rainy day, covered with mud and almost embarrased to show up. Rob met us as we were coming up the driveway, made us perfectly comfortable showing us where to hose off and let us... More

Rob and Mary Lou have done immaculate make-overs and updates to 4 lovely little Victorian-era home in this small riverfront town. I arrived with a bruised rib and they pampered me like family. They are the consummate hosts and will warm your heart immediately. A perfect stop for a tired biker along the Great Allegheny Passage trail. They are literally... More

My husband and I stayed here while biking the GAP trail. The owners were friendly and flexible with checkin time, which was great since we arrived in town before noon. I didn't realize we could use kitchen facilities and or coffee pot which would have been nice o know.

DC to Pgh bike ride stop for a night. Many many great aspects to the place: friendly staff, nice newly remodeled houses, right on the trail, bike locking facility, a small restaurant-like setting in the back of the main house, serving cold beer... Big plus - the hosts prepared us July 4th barbecue for a symbolic fee. What didn't chime... More

Please allow me to make a refund. I believe you were booked through a group organizer and your accommodations were as well. ordered. There was an empty room next to yours which was available for the asking. The thermostat for air is in the living room for guests to regulate. Please try us again. Our mission is to please you....
