The Peaks gets a fourth star largely because they are managing to run a decent restaurant an hour away from civilization. If you're staying at the lodge, the ability to walk down the hill and get a hot dinner are a long day of hiking can't be beat. We were here in the winter, when food options are even more sparse. Staying here two nights, we had two dinners and two breakfasts at the Peaks. The space itself is lovely, with a great view.
The food was hit or miss. Some items were quite delicious - the onion soup and bread pudding were highlights. The breakfast buffet was also a reasonable deal. Stay away from the pasta, we had both dishes and found neither very appealing. Also avoid the Smoked Salmon appetizer which fell short on multiple counts - a dip on a winter menu should really be warm (rather than pink colored cream cheese) and the baguette served was cardboard-like, which was ironic as the house bread was generally quite good. We also would have appreciated vegetarian items on the menu being marked as such. Prices were reasonable, especially considering the monopoly that the restaurant could exploit.
The staff was very friendly, and quick to comp an item left untouched, which was appreciated. The kitchen was a little slow on Saturday night, but anyone staying here really shouldn't be in a rush and it didn't bother us at all.
