I stayed with my wife and 3 grown daughers. We had a good price and had 3 rooms with a kitchen area and a bathroom. It is a very laid back operation. The host are nice folks. No credit cards accepted. Beds were really comfy and the homemade quilts were a nice touch. We went hiking on the Greenleaf Trail up to the AMC hut just below Lafayette Peak. This isn't the trail for the weak. Get started early, especially if you want to get up to Lafayette. Other than the worn carpet in the kitchen area, I really don't have any complaints. I have stayed before and enjoyed it with a bunch of guy friends while hiking. Nice location, but a little drive to any place to eat. The Franconia Inn has excellent meals and is the closest right down the street, but is a bit pricey. Also you can horseback ride there and get glider rides. I would not hesitate to recommend the Pinestead, but keep in mind that it is a bit "rustic" so if you are used to the Ritz, this might come up a might short for your taste.
