My friend and I spent a night at this gorgeous lodge. Everything was perfect (from the room (comfortable beds, spacious room, and breathtaking views). Perfect place for everyone (from families, groups of people hiking the AT, couples, and I wish my workplace would organise a company retreat there)

All aspects of this lodge were great. Room a bit dated and soundproofing an issue, but otherwise wonderful, peaceful place. Saw deer and squirrels, a nice lake and pretty trees. The Blue Ridge Parkway in October is stunning.

Location, location, location says it all. Peaks of Otter Lodge is located right on the Blue Ridge Parkway, with a beautiful lake and view of surrounding mountains. We saw more than 12 deer across the lake on the evening we arrived and it was a short walk to the visitor center for a trip up Sharp Top Mountain. The walk... More

Except for the TV and Keurig coffee maker, the lodge is just as it was 20 years ago. They even use an actual room key!!! If you're looking for a remote, quiet old-fashioned hotel this is the place for you.

The room and amenities provided at this lodge -- a place that looks as old as it is (built 1964) -- are about what you would find at hundreds of budget motels along interstate highways. If that was ALL that was provided, the price we paid would be about double what we would expect to pay for such accommodations. But... More

The Peaks of Otter Lodge is a great stop when touring the Blue Ridge Parkway. Pros: location, lake and mountain scenery, walking trails, and restaurant and bar a short walk away. Cons: very small bathroom and lack of soundproofing between rooms. Running the a/c unit helped filter the conversations from the next room.

Loved our stay, would return any time, can't wait! Lakeview from all rooms with picture window and balcony, stroll around the lake, dine in the lodge. Pure enjoyment and for reasonable rates. Friendly and professional staff. We have been to the lodge (day trips) many times before, this was our first overnight stay. It was worth it!

We've been going to Peaks of Otter for over 20 years with family and friends. The lodge is within walking distance of several hiking trails. All of the rooms overlook a lake that is at the base of Sharp Top Mountain. The rooms are always clean with very comfortable beds. The word "quiet" was created just to describe a night... More

We spent our honeymoon at this lodge over 41 years ago. The improvements made since then have made it more modern (wi-fi, TV) without spoiling the relaxing atmosphere. Watching the sunset from the balcony and the moon rise over Sharp Top Mountain reflected in the lake are marvelous experiences.

What a wonderful, relaxing, place to spend a few days. Staff is wonderful and friendly, but rooms need updating, for sure... Stunning vistas of the surrounding mountains on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Would love visit again when the rooms are updated as promised....
