My family was hiking the Maryland section of the Appalachian Trail over spring break. We arrived at Laurel's lovely hostel after driving in from Cincinnati. This was my children's first experience staying in one. After a great nights sleep in a clean and comfortable guest room we woke up to a great breakfast of waffles, fruit, juice and coffee. Laurel then drove us in our car to Pen Mar park where we began our hike back to Harpers Ferry. We then were able to hike from Pen Mar to the Tea Horse Hostel where Laurel had our care waiting for us.
We really had a fantastic time at this hostel and it was a great start to our trip.
