    Default Inn at Long Trail

    This thread is for experiences at the Inn at Long Trail. Our group had some negative experiences there, and I just heard from some other folks that stayed there that they had the same problem. What's the Whiteblaze verdict on this place?

    Had a good time there. I'd sent a mail drop also -- no problems. Good food, good brew. Easy coin-op laundry on the first floor. Easy hike up the Sherbourne Trail then next day, on my way southbound. I'd recommend it.

    Expensive beer, food, lodging. I don't get the big draw of the place.

    I stayed there several times after section hikes in the 90's. No worries. Clean but rustic room, Like LW says, it is expensive. Were your friends loud, annoying, drunk? Details please.
    .....Someday, like many others who joined WB in the early years, I may dry up and dissapear....

    They draw your name in the head of a Guinness. It's an acquired taste, you should try it.

    yeah...as Toolshed said...how about some details. I think it's rude to trash a place but give no details.

    Stayed there in 2003. Had a great stay. Was a bit on the expensive side because we had one of the rooms on the side with a fireplace in it. Nice people, good bar, great food, staff went out of their way to help. I've never heard any negative feedback except the price. It's a tourist place. What do you expect?

    Its a shamrock they draw on your Guiness head! Not every place is like Dot's the second best stop on the AT. Spend some of that Exxon cash! When was the last time you were there? Pints were $5.00 last time I was there. Live band and Murray the owner took good care of me, great place!

    Nothing but good things to say about my overnight there in 2003. It was a welcome respit after a night of freezing rain at higher elevations.

    Expensive ? ...yeah, relatively speaking, but so is everything in NE.

    Maybe my experience was unique, but I got one of the smaller rooms. All I really wanted out of the deal was a hot bath and a good meal, both of which I recieved. The folks running the place were accomodating to me and the other hikers there that night.

    Might not be within everyone's budget but all things considered, I'd stay there again.

    I didn't stay there on my thru - I stayed at Mt Meadows Lodge which all things considered I thot was the best place I stayed - but I did stay when I hiked VT a few years ago. I liked it well enough to return and stay there with my wife on a ski trip to Killington. I've also returned to MT Meadows on a Killington trip.

    Had a good time there in 03. Forget Guiness - Long Trail Ale is great. It ain't a hostel, but the prices are much lower than motels in the area.

    I've stayed twice, once with EZ. Had a great time, both times.... Split it was only $10-$20 per night, which was no big deal. LW will spend more at Holiday Inn Express.
