Great find! Nestled in the Blue Ridge, the Lodge offers a wonderful place to retreat and enjoy a couple days away from everything. Beautiful property, surrounded by beautiful views, and plenty of hiking, biking, exploring for all activity levels. Loved it.

We stayed 2 nights at Peaks of Otter Lodge. The setting is awesome and the service was wonderful. We liked it's proximity to Bedford. Our only complaint was the Friday Night Buffet. Some parts were delicious, other parts disappointing, overall not worth the price.

Love the lodge--hate the dining room changes. The dining room manager/chef needs to go. A total rehaul of the menu is needed as well as major price adjustments. We saw many families making sandwiches and dinners outside their rooms.My husband and I have been going to the "Peaks" since 1979. The dining room and food was always spectacular. Now I... More

After staying at the Peaks of Otter Lodge on several occasions over the past thirty-four years, I guess I really do like it there. If you don't like friendly, polite people who enjoy the "great outdoors" do us all a favor and go somewhere else.

We stayed a couple of nights here on a tour of Virginia and West Virginia and wished we could have stayed longer. The setting with the mountains and lake was more beautiful than expected, but we only had time to climb one of the three peaks! The rooms are nothing special, though will be upgraded soon. The best thing about... More

Following a difficult month with loss of a special family member, we decided on a quick trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway for much-needed R&R. It's amazing how much you can pack on your Can-Am motorcycle; and a day driving in the fog and rain was a bit daunting, to say the least! The sun came out over Peaks of... More

This is a very peaceful, beautiful location in which to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. I saw 3 fawns by the lake. It is a great area for hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The restaurant food was delicious.

Our stay at Peaks of Otter Lodge was perfect from start to finish. The grounds were lovely. We started each morning sitting outside on the balcony of our 2nd floor room enjoying a hot cup of coffee and the beautiful scenery. The staff was friendly. The service was wonderful. The room was charming. I'm already looking forward to my next... More

Relaxing from check-in to check-out. Will definitely return. Saw night sky full of stars away from any artificial light source while sitting on back porch of room. Food was great too - real southern fried chicken!

It was a quick one night stay for us taking our kids to college so we took a chance on this Lodge. We were happy we did and plan to return to spend more time to check out the trails and Sharp Top. The restaurant was a bit over-priced in my opinion.
