View Full Version : Long Trail Northern Term. B&B suggestions?

07-14-2004, 10:06
Got a question about the Long Trail. My parents are driving my wife and I up to the Northern Terminus, and I wanted to put them up in a B&B. There are three listed in the End2End guide : 1893 House, Rose Apple Acres Farm and North Troy Inn. All about the same price in the guide.

Does anyone have a recommendation?

Thanks so much!

We went to Rose Apple Acres Farm to get a shuttle to the trailhead for our start last September. Didn't stay at the B&B because they don't take dogs. Jay the proprietor was very nice, shuttled us in, and kept our car for 2 weeks. I'd recommend letting Jay shuttle you in, as the road to Journey's end is pretty washed out in places.

I had posted this in another thread (Other Trails>Long Trail) but I'll repeat it here as it might be of some interest:
"When I did the Long Trail I had my wife drop me off at at the last road crossing (RT-105 ?) 2.5 miles south of the border, stashed my pack, went to the northern end for the photo op, and headed south. I found that much easier than my old guidebook description of driving in toward the end, and it saves time."

We plan on starting at some point in the day on July 24th and hiking until we have to leave on August 12th.

I stayed at the North Troy Inn, it was OK but the owners got annoyed at us for using their phone??? Long time ago however, never heard a bad thing about Rose Apple Acres.
