Hello John Walker,

Thank you for your very nice commentary in the Cumberland Times-News today. A few friends sent it to me. I was married to Steve (and still am alive!!). Your comments were so nice, and greatly appreciated.

Good to hear from you, Mary. I'm so sorry that things turned out the way they did between Steve and me. He was a very nice man before the Alzheimers stole him from all of us. I glad that he's now at peace and is no longer suffering from this terrible infirmity.

FYI Little Orleans Lodge is CLOSED and For Sale
John Walker from Little Orleans on 04/13/2021 03:36 PM:
Heads-up outdoor enthusiasts and cyclists, as of March 2021, everything has been removed out, there is a For Sale sign in the driveway, Steve’s website has been pulled down, and the domain name is for sale. Asking price is $174K so hopefully someone will take on this historic property and there will be once again lodging in the sleepy hamlet of Little Orleans.

I drove by Steve's place last week after attending Good Friday Mass at Saint Patrick Catholic Church and there was a "For Sale" sign at the intersection just after crossing Fifteen-Mile Creek bridge, and another in the driveway. Also, the lodge website has been taken down and the domain name is for sale so that tells me that Steve is either very sick (COVID, etc...) or the family has finally had to put Steve into a nursing home because of his advancing Alzerhimers/Dementia. It is sad that we, the C&O Canal community, are losing this icon and hopefully someone will buy the place and restore it to its former glory.

Is Steve's place still open? Are they still accepting guests?

I had the same question, the numbers listed on their webpage all ring to dead numbers.

I would avoid at all costs. While Steve is a nice man, his lodge was filthy and cluttered. We had serious concerns with breakfast due to the unsanitary conditions. This is most uncomfortable I have ever been at any B&B.

If you want to spend a reasonable amount of money for a reasonable amount of cleanliness then Steve is your best bet. It's not a frilly B&B. There was some cat hair around and clutter in the main area. But nothing to call the Health Department about. Steve is a widower and
lives there. It's still cleaner than most. If you want to talk to someone local abut the flora and fauna of the area He's it. He's a character with honest charm and no deception.

Peter, I beg to differ with you about Steve Huebner and the cleanliness of Little Orleans Lodge. The place is a cluttered mess; the kitchen has been inspected on numerous occasions by the Allegany County Health Department, however they cannot shut him down because his establishment is classified a B&B and not a full blown commercial kitchen. Steve is pushing 80 and can barely keep up with the place all by himself. Allegany County Commissioner Bill Valentine has a bulging folder full of complaints about the cleanliness at Little Orleans Lodge dating back to 2008. He has run off all hired help who maintained the place and is exhibiting the early symptoms of Altimeter’s. A note for anonymous, please contact Allegany County Commissioner Bill Valentine and file a formal complaint (301) 777-5911.

WHAT A DUMP!

I was shocked at the amount of clutter and filth. Rooms needed vacuuming, hair in showers, junk strewn allover the yard. Caught a glimpse of the kitchen, wow, what a mess. Was afraid to eat breakfast the next morning. Wound up with a bad case of the Turkish trots; no doubt from that breakfast. Do not patronize this establishment! Going to report this to the health department and better business bureau.

Hi William,
Which establishment were you referring to? Thanks.

This is what I would call a "dump & run" post (no pun intended).

We've stayed here a number of times over the years and recommend it to all our friends. We enjoy Steves' hospitality,knowledge,humor and willingness to go that extra mile for us. We've always felt at home along ways from home. Enjoy!

Been staying at Steve's place since 2008. Great location, only 1/2 mile from canal trail, clean rooms, a killer breakfast at a reasonable rate. This is a lodge, not a stuffy B-n-B with lace doilies and fancy curtains. Too many bad things have been said about this place that just aren’t true. Highly recommended from a seasoned hiker. I have seen a lot worse.
