For those participants who prefer not to camp either indoors or out, we offer this list of suggested motels/Bed & Breakfasts that are located nearest to the overnight sites.  Past riders have found them to be more than acceptable, but RTFL is not responsible for the quality of their service or facilities.  Since our new format allows you to have your own personal vehicle with you each night, you are free to seek out other choices at your discretion. 

Saturday June 1 and Sunday June 2:

These first two nights we will be overnighting in the community of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  Less than a quarter mile from the main campsite at the Arena Park is the Town House Inn motel.  Very basic but clean.  It's an easy walk or bike ride away, making it very convenient to come and go since we will be staying two consecutive days and nights.  A Huddle House restaurant is immediately adjacent, with several others a short distance away.  To reserve rooms here for both Saturday and Sunday nights, contact:

Town House Inn  505 North Kingshighway Cape Girardeau, MO 63701  573-335-2700


For those seeking a more upscale level of accommodations, another choice is the Candlewood Suites hotel.

Candlewood Suites 485 S. Mount Auburn Road Cape Girardeau, MO  63701  573-334-6868


Bellevue Bed & Breakfast  312 Bellevue Street  Cape Girardeau, MO  63701  573-335-3302


Downtown Loft 1025 Broadway Cape Girardeau, MO  63701  573-450-1255

Monday, June 3 and Tuesday June 4 and Wednesday June 5:

We will be staying in Hickman, Kentucky.  This charming and welcoming community is too small to support a motel, so we will need to use accommodations at Reelfoot Lake, approximately 25 miles to the southwest, or in Union City, Tennessee, 15 miles to the southeast.  Reelfoot Lake selections are in a more scenic and interesting area, with lakefront resort accommodations and a quaint country bed & breakfast, at the expense of a more distant location.  Union City lodgings are half the distance, but are ordinary chain hotel locations.  Again, the choice is yours.

Reelfoot Lake accommodations:

Dragonfly Inn Bed & Breakfast  365 Sunkist Beach Road  Tiptonville, TN 38079  731-253-0206


Boyette's Resort  30 Boyette Road  Tiptonville, TN  38079  888-465-6523


Union City accommodations:

Quality Inn  2201 W. Reelfoot Avenue  Union City, TN  38261  731-885-8850


Country Hearth Inn  2009 W. Reelfoot Avenue  Union City, TN  38261  731-885-8850


Pecan Grove Bed & Breakfast  520 N. College  Martin, TN  38237  731-587-1918


Thursday June 6 and Friday June 7:

We'll overnight the final two nights of the tour in Dyersburg, Tennessee.   Choices here include: 

Hampton Inn 2750 Mall Loop Road  Dyersburg, TN  38024  731-285-4778
