This B&B is right on the trail. The couple who own it (it's a cluster of houses) go out of their way to be welcoming and accommodating. The room was comfortable, the house has some character, and the breakfast was terrific. You'll enjoy meeting other cyclists from all over the country there. It's a short walk for tired cyclists to...

Rob and Marylou provide a comforting presence along the GAP Trail! Their Bright Morning B&B is a great place for tired trail riders, just a few steps from the West Newton Welcome Center and the Trailside Restaurant where many riders head for dinner. The Bright Morning is actually four houses right beside the trail. Rob and Marylou now serve drinks... More

Rob and Marylou's B&B was a much needed stop after a long bike ride. We purchased the entire house for the day and enjoyed our time. Rob was a gracious host and filled all needs from offering advice on dinner to washing bikes. Breakfast was special in the morning.

Fantastic hosts, great food, an outdoor fire with a ginger brandy made this the best stop on the trail for us. Both Mary Lou and Rob engaged in great conversation and were extremely accommodating! we would highly recommend this as a stop!
