I am planning a trip to the Creeper Trail and would like some advice on lodging. Here is the criteria I would like to fulfill:
1. Prefer a cabin/lodge versus a B&B (or just something more private than a B&B).
2. Within walking distance from the Creeper Trail (1/4 mile or so - would prefer right on the Creeper Trail).
3. Within walking distance to a creek or river where we can tube (again - 1/4 mile or right on the river).
4. Two separate beds (doesn't matter if they're in the same room).
And - is one day on the Creeper Trail enough? To do one day on the trail and another day tubing?
One other question - while I don't expect a lot of nightlife in the area - are there any watering holes in Damascus or Abingdon where we could hang out in the evenings? Live music, etc. for 40-somethingers? If not, no big deal.
Thank you so much!
