Hiking trails, great restaurant. Thoroughly relaxing. Blue Ridge Mountains are a great destination for family. You can do as much or as little as you prefer. Fishing is also a great pastime as well as enjoying the beautiful night sky.

We enjoyed the retro-60s style rooms with their huge, vaulted ceilings, and large windows. The rooms were clean and the beds were new. Delaware North is the new management company, so this hotel should get even better in the coming months. But the main reason for staying here is the magnificent view of Abbot Lake and Sharp Top peak. Incredible!... More

The setting of this lodge is perfect. Dinner was good and we enjoyed the breakfast buffet the next morning. We have a nice hike on the sharp top trail despite the clouds and fog. We would like to return in the fall.

We've visited the lodge for almost ten years. Since new ownership a few years ago, we've noticed changes not necessarily for the better. The restaurant is very disappointing. The food was mediocre. It seemed understaffed at the Friday night buffet whereas most food was not available or replaced. It was not a good value for twenty dollars per person. However,... More

Beautiful setting and quiet relaxing atmosphere. The only problem was the noisy air conditioner and room noise as I could hear the conversations from the room next door. They have not upgraded anything in many years. That said I would stay there again.

There are not a lot of choices directly on the Blue Ridge Parkway, but we heard good things about this one. The room was big and comfortable, if a bit dated (which I feel fit with the intended ambiance). Dinner was good, with attentive service that didn't seem faked or overdone. Breakfast, however, was a different matter. The food was... More

Peggy, Please accept my apology for your bad service and meal at Peaks for breakfast. We certainly do not want any of our guests treated this way. I want to offer you a free meal if you would come back, if so print out this response and we will take care of you. Again I do apologize. Andrew More

This was a combination stay. Our immediate family (daughter, husband and children) were staying at a Peaks of Otter campsite. My wife and I returning home from N.C. stopped for a night at the lodge. It was most enjoyable with beautiful views of hills, lake and forests. Accommodations, though basic, were comfortable. Food was good and staff were very friendly.

Beautiful setting! Peaceful and relaxing! The rooms are a little dated but clean and comfortable. The food is good and an unexpected pleasure was the bar that also had a great duo called Root2 Music! Definitely check them out if you’re there on a Saturday night! Good service and a nice drive up on the Blue Ridge Parkway…we will definitely... More
