I selected the Peaks of Otter Lodge on my first trip on the Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's location on the Parkway adds to the travel experience. The lodge is situated on a small lake with the Peak in the background. The staff are helpful and checking in or out was not an issue. Purchased a bottle of wine at the gift store. It was her first day of work and I was her first customer. Sent pics to family members and will use this facility in the future.
