My girlfriend and I were spending the weekend mountain biking at Kingdon Trails and we chose Stepping Stone Spa as our lodging, since we wanted a bit of a spa spin on our trip. We were not disappointed. Firstly, this place is so quaint and charming - it felt just like home. Breakfast was wonderful, not a limited continental breakfast, but a hearty healthy breakfast to get us ready for hours of mountain biking. It is situated right on the trails, so we could leave from the spa on our bikes. And as an added bonus, they let us use their kitchen, so we ended up eating in both nights and making ourselves a fabulous dinner in a professional kitchen - it was so awesome!! Quiet, clean, and very attentive staff. What more could you ask for?!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Stepping Stones Inn is located on beautiful Darling Hill on the Kingdom Trails system. Kingdom Trails offers mountain biking, winter biking, snow-shoeing, cross country traditional and skate skiing. We are also 3 miles from Burke Mountain, a four season resort offering downhill skiing and mountain biking. Access to the VAST system is across the street. Willoughby Lake (in the GAP) is 15 minutes away. Newly opened as a Bed and Breakfast, we also offer massage therapy, yoga sessions and dry saunas. We recommend booking ahead for restaurants as they do get busy. Our restaurant recommendations are Foggy Goggle, Publick House, and Sweet Basils. Additionally, Mike's Tiki Bar is a must for every mountain biker! Located in downtown East Burke, there is a food truck and wine and beer bar. We do not yet have our own beer license, and we are BYOB. ... more less
