Was pleasantly surprised with our stay at Little Orleans Lodge. The word on the C&O Canal trail was to stay away from this place. Not true! Unfortunately, Steve Huebner maybe the proprietor, but John is running the show. After a few moments it was apparent that Steve is suffering from Alzheimer’s. With that said, our every need was met without question. Because Bill’s was closed due to a family emergency, John made arrangements to have Steve shuttle us up to the Road Kill Café (no joke this is the real name) up in Atriums, Pennsylvania for a lovely family style dinner. We found the rooms clean, adequate, and plenty of pillows. Our breakfast was a feast for a king. Steve still gets up at 4am and bakes his own bread for his signature French toast. Be advised is Little Orleans Lodge is a “LODGE” and nothing more. It is a great stop over for bikers on the C&O Canal trail and is the only lodging between Hancock and Cumberland, Maryland. Don’t be scared by the round about way you have to get to Steve’s from Bill’s place, just ½ mile. This is western Maryland and nothing is in a straight line. In closing, I highly recommend Little Orleans Lodge, especially now that there is a competent manager in charge there. Call ahead for available and pricing. You can’t beat the price that includes a first class breakfast. Two thumbs up!

I don’t know where Steven stayed, but it could not have been Little Orleans Lodge. Our group was bicycling the C&O/GAP trail and spent a night their last October. It is covenant to the C&O Canal trail, just a half mile up from Bill’s Place. The place is rustic and as the name implies, it is a lodge, nothing more. Be forewarned, this is not your potpourri, antiques in the bedroom, lace doilies type B-n-B establishment. No sir. I would, however, not recommend Little Orleans Lodge for families with children or a romantic weekend escape with the significant other. That said, it was clean, well maintained, the proprietor Steve Huebner was a wealth of information ranging from plants, animals, bird species, local history and a darn good cook. Along with a breakfast fit for a king, we were taken on a tour of the area that included a visit to an overlook of the Potomac river that was… well just spectacular. I am sorry that Steven and company encountered shortcomings with Little Orleans Lodge, however, I will contend that his relocation maybe mistaken and that his account was not of Steve Huebner and Little Orleans Lodge.
First off: It's not the place the pic on the Internet shows. The owner is rude and doesn't care about guest. It's dirty and just plain nasty. We sat for breakfast and the table and silverware were dirty, the creamer would turn the coffee. Hour elbows stuck to the table. The bedding was nasty and the owner didn't even care. Stay way away from this place. It's a total scam.
