Peaks Of Otter Lodge sits on beautiful Abbott Lake. My husband and I enjoyed our walk around the lake - very peaceful. Hiked to top of Sharp Top Mountain - gorgeous views! Had a delicious dinner at the restaurant with beautiful view of Abbott Lake and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Server very attentive and nice. Food was good.

Beautiful setting but weak attention to guest needs. After reopening last year, I expected more attention to guests staying on grounds. Service in restaurant slow and disorganized due to walk-in traffic and failure to service in-house guests. Although everyone apologized and smiled a lot, action speaks louder than words. Lots of construction going on with open ditches that were not... More

We picked the location simply because it was 1/2 way between each couple's home. We arrived at night, in rain and fog. When we got up and opened the curtain, the breathtaking view of the lake and the mountains was unforgettable. Can honestly say there was not one member of staff that wasn't a "5" ... and made you feel... More

Attended the Vintner's Dinner featuring Barboursville Winery. Food and wine were fantastic...what a wonderful dinner! Looking forward to the sleeping room renovations. Wi-fi is also a nice addition. Looking forward to a return visit!

We loved this beautiful National Park lodge, tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We loved everything about it, except the stink bugs, and the beds, but, as I understand, the Lodge is undergoing renovations, including the beds,

The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The rooms were clean, with only necessities but we were prepared for that and enjoyed the break from the normal hustle of our home town. Scenery was beautiful even in the winter. Very charming place and people!

My husband and I just spent a magical overnight at the Peaks of Otter in Bedford, Virginia. We can't recommend this site enough if you are longing for a quiet, relaxing, peaceful and beautiful venue. Our room overlooking the lake and Sharp Top Mountain couldn't have been more attractive and cozy. After arriving from our trip on the Blue Ridge... More

My husband and I just "winged" our week of Thanksgiving. The plan was to drive the blueridge and stop where we wanted. The biggest factor effecting our trip was the fact we were traveling with our 70 pound Black and Tan Coonhound Chowder. We got the parkway, and sad to say our first day of traveling was raining AND foggy.... More

No frills, just beauty and quiet serenity with pleasant people and surroundings. This is my favorite easy getaway place for calm, peace and quiet and the most lovely views. If you want nightlife, forget it. This is for quieting and calming the mind and lifting your spirits.
