    Mountain Creek (Diablo) Roadtrip - Stay, Eat and Drink

    Need a little local knowledge.

    The crew is looking at a Roadtrip from the wilds of Southern Ontario into Mountain Creek for a weekend of riding. Part of the crew has been down to Diablo before, but the accoms they had arranged ended up as a bit of a gong show.


    We are looking at sometime around the end of September.

    Anybody have any pointers on

    Where to stay - something with eat-in would be nice.
    Where to eat - when we don't want to eat in.
    Where to drink. - ya gotta have a place to hang and bench-race...

    aprox $ for each for budgeting?

    AT this point looks like 4-6 guys in total.
    Most of us double the drinking age, so that is not an issue.

    So anybody have any ideas - let me have em!!

    Thanks all

    The closest and most convenient lodging will be the Appalachian Hotel, which is literally at the base of the mountain. I believe that there are a few chain-type hotels (Days Inn, etc) within a 10-15 minute drive of Vernon. I don't know the pricing for the Appalachian, but I would give them a call and see what their rates are for the end of September.

    Having ridden there almost every weekend for the last few years, I can tell you that the fall is prime time for riding. The trails are usually in great shape and the waterpark madness has ended by that point.

    There are a few small bars/pubs in the Vernon area. The Vernon Inn has decent food/drinks and it's right in town. It's got a cool little townie atmosphere.
