We stopped here at the end of the first leg of a C&O Canal bike trip. Bill and Darlene are wonderful and could not have been more welcoming. There was a hose to clean off the bikes and a shed to lock them in. The rooms were quite large and very comfortable. The afternoon snacks were delicious and just enough to take the edge off before dinner. There is a nice large front porch for relaxing if the weather is nice, and a comfy living room for when the weather doesn't lend to sitting outside. And the breakfast was AWESOME! If you stay, ask for the Southwest omelet and the blueberry muffins :) We would certainly stay here again, and would recommend it for any of our friends.
