Last September I biked on the Erie Canal Trail with my husband providing support. We stayed at the Lockport Inn and Suites. I'm not sure about biking there from the trail. My husband picked me up and we were able to drive there. We really loved it. It's like a time capsule. A couple who are a bit up in years, have run it for many years. Their adult children help. Go to the website and you can see the photos of the rooms. We had a jacuzzi, the room was high end 70s, "Hollywood Regency." We got to visit with the owner. He has an incredible (actually he may have more than one) convertible cadillac from the 50s, he let us sit in it and take our picture. Then my husband got to drive around the grouds with him in his golf cart, pick apples from an apple tree, it was an absolute joy! So bottom line, if you want an experience like none other, and you can get there from the trail, stay at the Lockport Inn and Suites.

Good information. It looks like the Inn is 1.6 miles south of the Lockport locks which is on the canal trail and 11 minutes via bicycle per google maps. BTW, the original flight of 5 locks has been preserved along side the current locks and should be a place to take in while in the area.

I believe there is camping at Macedon Canal Park.
