We decided at the last minute to attend the Virginia Highlands Festival in Abingdon, Va this past weekend. We usually stay at another B&B, however, they were full and the owner suggested Creeper's End Lodging. All we can say is that they provided us with luxurious surroundings in a cottage setting, with every amenity one could wish for. It was very easy to book the room and early check in was available at the time. From beautiful cherry hardwood floors, extremely comfortable beds, a big screen tv to watch the Olympics on, to a talking clock... we had it all and for a very modest price. No breakfast was served, however they provided cracker snacks, sodas, water, coffee and tea. Every room has a small kitchenette with a toaster oven, microwave, small dishwasher, refrigerator, and high end utensils and dishes. One could walk to nice restaurants, the center of town, and the Barter Theater from Creeper's End. And if you are a cycling person, the bike trail is right there. You can't go wrong here. We almost hate to tell people about it, as if we come back to the Abingdon area, it will be booked ahead of us!
