Just wanted to let everyone know - my wife Carla and I were passed the baton by Bill and Darlene and are doing our utmost to live up to the standards that they created for the 1828 Trail Inn. They are the model [hosts] upon which we base our hospitality. Plus we are availing ourselves of Bill's muffin recipes - available on the website! May your trail be safe, dry, and mostly

Count us in as massive fans of 1828 Trail Inn and the Deckers. We stayed there last week on our thru hike and we were honestly overwhelmed by the complete authenticity of Joe’s hospitality. As I told Joe, some people are great hosts because they are doing a good job, and then a select few are incredible hosts because it simply is innate.
Joe Decker, you were one of the highlights of our 11 day hike. I honestly feel like my wife and I could have asked for ANYTHING and you would have done everything in your power to accommodate and done so with enthusiasm.
We love you and we love your Inn and I treasure our discussions of your amazing and unique book collection, your ridiculously good breakfast (served in courses) and your numerous kindnesses you extended to us. And baking vegan muffins last minute for us? Amazing.
1828 gets my absolute highest recommendation. We look forward to visiting in October (when we are not destroyed from hiking 185 miles!) and meeting Carla.
Thank you sir, you define hospitality!

Darlene, who owns the Inn with her husband Bill, told guests at breakfast that they are putting it up for sale. It needs a younger owner, she said. They plan on retiring in Arizona. I very much enjoyed staying here after riding from Meyersdale -- for the room, use of the washing machine/dryer, the fridge full of Gatorade Zero, and Darlene and Bill's hospitality. She baked cranberry muffins for riders to take along that day, and by the time I neared Brunswick, I was grateful for her thoughtfulness. It's a great place to stay!

I stayed there last year. It was a comfortable place to spend the night. They were gracious hosts.
