The 1828 Trail Inn is a top notch B&B and is a real gem on the C&O Canal. My two sons and I stayed there while biking the trail and were treated royally. Bill and Darlene are wonderful hosts and really made us feel at home. A hose to wash our bikes, a shed for bike storage, laundry facilities, and cold drinks waiting in the fridge were fantastic. Breakfast was totally delicious (croissant cheesy omelettes....yum) and Darlene even packed up some muffins for the road. The house has been magnificently restored and everything was impeccably clean. Even the towels were plush. They really have left no details unattended to. It will definitely be a stop the next time we ride the trail.
