“Ideal for trail users”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

We stayed here for one night during the week during a Pittsburgh to DC bike trip. Location couldn't be more convenient, right off the trail, and Sinclair was right over to help us get settled in. The secure basement for bike storage and hose for washing down muddy bikes were easily accessible and the house (an old whiskey storehouse) is beautifully restored inside and out. The lounge room on the upper level was perfect for taking it easy in the evening and there's a nice iMac for Internet use and DVD or Netflix movies. There's even a balcony right off the lounge overlooking the canal. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very nice and clean and the beds comfortable. Sinclair was over in the morning to make a tasty breakfast of eggs made to order, canadian bacon, english muffins, fresh fruit salad, juice, and coffee. The house is only a few blocks from the main drag and conveniences like a liquor store, grocery store, and a Sheetz. There's one restaurant (closes at 8pm though), a Subway, and a place to order pizza delivery. Overall a great place to stay and I highly recommend.

A friend and I were biking the B&O canal and needed a place to stay close to the trail. This is right between the Western Maryland Rail Trail and the Canal Path and in the center of town. The B&B is run by Sinclair and his wife Sue. Sinclair met us and got us settled in. We were the only guests that night. The room and bathrooms were very clean. The locked bike storage area was in the basement with pumps and bike cleaning rags. Both the kitchen and the upstairs common area have great views of the canal. It is tastefully decorated. We enjoyed our 1 night stay! Sue cooked us a nice breakfast of eggs, Canadian bacon, with English muffins and coffee.

Room Tip: We slept in the minimalist room. It was fine.

Riverrun is perfectly located between the C & O towpath and the Western Maryland Rail Trail, with views of the canal from the rooms, a cheery open kitchen and a beautiful common space. Our room was impeccably clean and well-appointed. The host was interesting and friendly while remaining respectful of our personal space. He even helped us fix a flat on one of our bikes--truly above and beyond!

If you are biking or hiking on the C & O Canal, this is the only place in Hancock you want to stay. The entire place was converted to a B & B about three years ago and it's all new inside. While it isn't fancy, it is bright and cheery. And it sits right on the WMRT and the C & O. The day we arrived there were snacks waiting for us, along with a nice storage area for our bikes. This is a low key place. The owners don't live on site and they are willing to leave you alone.if that is what you prefer.
While our host - Sinclair - was willing to make breakfast, he had no problem with us using the kitchen and making our own.
The only problem we had was finding a decent place to eat in Hancock. Since the kitchen facilities are available at Riverrun, so will find it better to buy groceries and cook at the B & B.

I was doing a trip from DC to Pittsburgh and stayed at the Riverrrun B and B for one night. The facilities were f=very good and the rooms were clean and large. We had encountered a storm between Harpers Ferry and Hancock and were covered in mud and the storage room and bike wash facility was a true bonus.
Breakfast was delicious and the owners were a great help for allowing me to download my Garmin data onto Garmin connect so that I did not lose the information on my bike computer which would have overwritten the previous data. Anyway if you need to connect your Garmin the computer is now able to do it.

We biked the C&O canal from DC to Cumberland and our second night's stay was in Hancock.
The Inn was clean, and we washed our bikes out back.
The iced tea was exactly what we needed after a hot, humid day on the C&O canal.
Room and ammenities could not have been better.

My friends and I biked 60 miles from Cumberland to Hancock for part of a two-day trip. We were delighted to find this bed and breakfast within view of the canal (previously researched, but readily located). It was clean and pretty. It is three years old (as of 2012) and was renovated by the owners. There are pretty, dark wood floors, tall ceilings and nice furniture. We added a fold-up bed ($25) to the chimney room so the three of us could stay together. While the beds were not plush, they were adequate. The bathroom for the chimney room was well-lit by a large window and was very clean. There was shampoo/conditioner/soap in a dispenser that all smelled wonderful (products from Aromatics)! There are about 8 rooms in the B&B. There were only two rooms occupied by bikers, which surprised me a bit, especially on a holiday weekend. We stored our bikes in the locked basement. After dinner, we passed some time playing boggle. It was the only game available in the great room. I wouldn't have minded a few more options. However, the great room was comfortable and pretty with a small balcony overlooking the canal. There is an interesting set of books on the bookshelves reflecting the artistic preferences of the owners. I enjoyed perusing the titles. Breakfast was good. It started off with grapefruit, bananas and a little bit of orange juice in a pretty glass cup. Then, fresh english muffins, warmed canadian bacon, deviled eggs, and yogurt.

Room Tip: We stayed in the chimney room. It is on the main floor, next to where breakfast is served and near...
