Right on the Blue Ridge Parkway and simply a simple & beautiful resort. The Peaks of Otter even has a section of pet friendly rooms. Dog friendly for sure. The rooms are updated, yet "old lodge style" right out of the 60's. No phones in the room, but flat screen TVs. All rooms face the lake with breathtaking views -... More

Enjoyed the view of the lake, enjoyed walking around seeing the grounds. Lodge room was fine. Food was excellent. WiFi was not so good. Another patron had taken a picture of a bear with his camera and the WiFi system would not let him send it to me. I took pictures with my camera of the lake and lodge, but... More

Me and my husband stayed here for our 1 year wedding anniversary it was beautiful and relaxing. Food was average but the peaceful surroundings and drinks were great! They had some staffing issues in the kitchen but still produced good food. If you like peace, quite and spending time outdoors I would recommend!

We loved the balcony overlooking the lake, the screen doors and louvered slat windows. We got to sleep with the windows open and cool breeze coming in. The room was comfortable and the balcony was private. There is a paved path around the lake that makes a perfect stroll. Many chairs invite you to sit and enjoy. The food was... More

We had a great time at the Peaks of Otter Lodge! Amazing views and great food. We will make return visits in the future. There was a deer in grazing in front of our window just at dusk and we saw lots of other wildlife around the lake.

The view is beautiful. Loved the paved trail around the lake. Loved all the dogs that were guests with their owners. I don't recommend the food but the entertainment was delightful in the dinning hall. The rooms are not fancy. There were few TV channels. The coffee maker was dusty. There were no tissues in the room and it was... More

Nice view of the lake. On my way from Charlottesville to Blowing Rocks I got one night sleep there. Very nice view of lake, so simple, so comfortable to stay. If you doing the blue ridge road I guess you should sleep one night there.

The location is off the beaten path. The area is beautiful, peaceful and quiet. It was nice to walk around the lake. All the rooms have doors to the lake side with a patio to sit on or you can sit on the chairs out close to the lake and just relax.

Beautiful mountain scenery, hiking and historic Johnson Farm. Fun time. We spent a day hiking through the trails to visit the Johnson Farm. The "Taylors" gave us an awesome tour of the buildings and farm. Lots of great historic detail. Don't miss this opportunity to relive history.
