Stayed in the railroad room and it had everything you could want. A balcony, nice bathroom, comfy bed. They have a washer and dryer for you to use. Breakfast was good. The innkeepers were extremely helpful.

Came from new York to ride the rail trail and towpath. This was home base. A beautiful place to stay. Darlene and Bill are wonderful hosts, and man can Bill cook breakfast. We spent three nights here. This is one of the nicest B&B's we have stayed in. Loved talking with Darlene and Bill every afternoon. They made my wife... More

The 1828 Trail Inn rates up there with the best B&Bs. Old, old house, nicely restored. Clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are superb and the innkeepers are great. Hancock isn't very big. It's claims to fame are the Maryland Rail Trail and the C&O Canal towpath. And one thing more - The 2824 Trail Inn.

After a tiring day-long trek from Cumberland, my husband showed up tired and covered in mud. Bill helped us hose down (selves included) and stow our bikes securely in a clean, accessible shed. The Inn itself is lovingly decorated and well-appointed -- including a washer and dryer! Bill recommended a nice restaurant across the street, which was very welcome for... More

We stayed here on a recent ride of the C&O. This place is nice! The breakfast was great and the front porch overlooks the trail. Accommodations we nice and had a private feel. The innkeepers were friendly and recommended place in Hancock that we could eat. We highly recommend this place!

My friends and I biked the Great Allegheny Passage and the C&O and the 1828 Trail Inn was by far our favorite B&B on our trip. Darlene and Bill are excellent hosts and extremely pleasant people.

This B & B is certainly one of the nicest on the trail and one of the best we have stayed at before. Great location, wonderfully furnished and gracious hosts, however, what makes this Inn exceptional are the proprietors - Bill & Darlene - - who go above and beyond and are just very good people. We unfortunately had an... More
