Wonderful weekend getaway with our. FMily. Hikes were beautiful! Can't wait to go back in the spring. The rate for the room was a little in the high side. Scenery was amazing. All rooms have a great view.

Very peaceful and scenery is just stunning. The rooms are a bit dated but a bit of paint would fix. Staff is 5 stars! We were there just one night, but totally appreciated the experience.

We always love to come to the Lodge. The location is very beautiful. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. From the dining area you have a great view over the lake and Sharp Top Mountain. We even had a couple play country music in the evening, which we enjoyed!

Third time my cousin and I have stayed at the Peaks for our birthdays celebration. It's a a beautiful, warm and relaxing place to unwind and enjoy nature! Enjoyed music on the lawn, during lunch, and at dinner by local musicians. Coffee cafe is a nice touch for specialty coffees and lighter fare for breakfast.

Peaks of Otter (POO) is a family friendly nature honoring getaway. Worth the drive for just the food, but plan on a longer stay if you're needing a pace to reconnect to your inner self. If you are a Christian you'll be awed by God''a handiwork. If you aren't yet, you might be surprised to discover Him there. Just sayin...

A short drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway: Fall colors, crisp air. The restaurant in the Lodge. A great way to spend a fall day. Great salad bar, very good pork chops, great turkey and dressing. All in all I'll be back for more..

Breath taking setting with comfortable rooms.There was a delightful couple who played music from all over the world. The meals were excellent and the views of the otters swimming in the lake were entrancing. Over all a perfect setting for our 51 st wedding anniversary.
