Great restaurant right there at the lodge. The views are great and the service was good. The folks are very friendly. Also most like you are staying in their home.

In the middle of the Winter, the Peaks of Otter offered my wife, our dog, and me a great place to get away, enjoy the beauty of nature, and enjoy some fine eating!
