We are driving the Blue Ridge Parkway in a little over three days. The first night we are staying at the Peaks of Otter Lodge, and are looking for a second night place to be around Blowing Rock/Boone. We'd like to be a little more north, but we can make it comfortably to Blowing Rock/Boone if that is the best place to be. I'd just take the HI Express, but it has smoking rooms too, and I've found that to be incredibly troublesome for my asthma. Any great ideas? Thanks!
