I hesitated a while to write this review, because I'm afraid that when word gets out about how great this place is, I won't be able to get a room. My husband and I had been headed to a different mountain biking destination, and diverted last-minute to East Burke, arriving at 9:30 pm. The office had been closed half an hour, but the proprietor drove down anyway to check us in. Then he called around to local restaurants to find somewhere that would stay open long enough for us to get food. My very particular husband rates the bed "comfiest ever." The continental breakfast is actually an assortment of delicious home-made treats like scones and little quiches, plus fruit, and basics like bagels and cereal. The afternoon cookies and juice were perfect to break up a full day of riding. There's a hose and a bike stand, and a large room where you can work on your bike. The downtown location is central, so we walked to restaurants for dinners and rode daily from the Inn to the trails. The balcony and the yard are nice spots to enjoy a beer after a day riding, although we never actually found the time. Since there's only one mini-fridge in the building, I'd suggest bringing a small cooler if this your plan.
