That will be a nice break from a tough section of trail
The link doesn't seem to work though.

Neel gap, Helen GA, Hiwasee inn,Ron Havens, NOC, Cabin in the Woods,Inn at Fontana, Gatlinburg, Standing Bear, Sunnybank, Hemlock Hollow, UncleJohnny's,GreasyCreekFriendly, Mountain Harbour B&B, Kincora, Braemar Castle, Damascus....pretty soon you'll be able to hike the whole AT without even camping out.

Wasn't that the original vision for the AT?

trail budget. $2500 for hikers, $10,000 for hotel and hostel hoppers. On the plus side look at all the money you could save in gear. You wont need a tent, a hammock, a sleeping bag, a stove.... A water bottle and a fanny pack would about cover it. Seriously I wish you great success. Its nice to have the option of stepping of the trail wherever you are should the need or desire arise.
