    Unhappy No Room at the Inn

    Everything on the BMWMOA lodging list is full.

    I have a suite at the Black Bear Inn. Some others are staying there as well. It is not on the list.

    There are a lot more resorts in the area than what is on the list. Plus there is always camping at the site.

    Check local chamber of commerce websites for lodging lists. Ask the ones that are booked if you can get on a waiting list. As it gets closer to rally time peoples plans change and rooms come available.
    There will be plenty of camping onsite.

    Thumbs up Camp Meade

    Try Camp Meade - some riders I know are staying there. It's about 25 miles from the rally site, but an easy ride right off Rt 100 and and the interstate, close to some of the best riding. Private compound, pool, fire pit, restaurant on site for breakfast and lunch. Don't let the web page fool you!

    Just to let others know that there was one room left at the Howard Johnson's left as of yesterday evening. One king size bed - smoking room (sorry if this offends some in our community)

    OK, so here's a plug for a small inn right in my town. A nice 8 mile ride along a river to the fair grounds. Plus, there are a number of small, locally owned restaurants right in Richmond.

    Richmond?

    Wow. Richmond has really come up in the world. Next thing you know there will be a Hampton or Marriott moving in. It certainly is convenient to the rally site and lots of great riding.

    No chain motels here, or will there likely be. We did move up in the world a few years back and put in a traffic light!

    Yes, the Inn is close to the Round Church. The big barn (Monitor Barn) was rebuild by the historical or land trust groups. It now serves as home to the Vermont Youth Conservation Group. May be a meeting place also. Beautiful building.

    Though I would prefer to be camped on site, this year my wife will be with me and she requires better lodging, so we booked a room for the duration at the T-bird Motor Inn on Route 7 just south of Burlington in Shelburne.

    Here is a tip which may work for some...

    Get a couple of people together and rent a camping trailer for delivery on-site.

    You wind up with a fully operational unit complete with a shower. Water and electrical hook ups are available and if you are not on a site with a sewer connection there will be a truck coming by for pumpouts.

    It is also nice to have a kitchen with a fridge to keep the beverages cold.

    You can rent small trailers all the way up to a 40' that will sleep 8. I did this in Rhinbeck and will be doing it again in Vermont.

    When it is all said and done it is a little more pricy than a room 30 miles away but if you like the full rally experience without camping it is a great option.

    I been checking and so far there's only one place that rents in the area. They have 1 - 31' motorhome available for that weekend. For Wednesday-Sunday it would be $932. Then there's the the CV Expo charges. It will sleep eight,,,, four of you better reeeealy like each other!

    Wow.

    Did you ask about a trailer instead of an RV?
