Default Two-night trip to Blue Ridge Parkway to see leaves

You all were so helpful when I asked about flea markets close to Spartanburg. You recommended the one in Greer, and it is great.

I'd like information about planning a two-night trip (three days) from Spartanburg to see the leaves this fall on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Can any of you help me plan my itinerary and also where to stay (I know the places fill up fast during that busy season)? I and a friend from high school will travel on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during the week of October 21st. Thanks so much for your help in advance.

I have stayed at this place before, Linville Falls Lodge and Cottages. Quaint little place near Linville Caverns that has a nice restaurant connected to it and very close to the Parkway. Here is their website:

Linville Falls Lodge & Cottages, Linville Falls North Carolina

If I remember correctly it is a straight shot up Highway 221 from Spartanburg, and it is at the corner where 221 meets NC Hwy 183, 2 hours away maybe??

I prefer the stretch of the BRP in Virginia, from the NC state line south of Galax through Fancy Gap, Meadows of Dan and Rocky Knob. Very scenic in the fall but much less traffic than farther west toward the Asheville and Smoky Mountain region. Pine Creek Cabins (Pine Creek Cabins) just outside Floyd has very nice cabins; I've stayed there and can recommend them. In fact, you could spend one night in Linville Falls as suggested by skinnyjh and then head up the BRP through Blowing Rock and Cumberland knob to Virginia to your second stop in Floyd before heading home.
