Clean rooms, nice touch on the romance package. scenic and very well landscaped. bathrooms were clean, beds comfortable. the balcony view of the pond was very nice. the trail around the pond was very nice, and the proximity for other hiking areas and right on the blue ridge parkway is a plus.

Room Tip: if you take the romance package make sure that you get it confirmed before you arrive, and make sure...

I loved the totally nature lake with the trail around it. So quiet and beautiful. The restaurant was delicious and you could enjoy the gorgeous view from there as well. The rooms need to be renovated, and they have a plan to do that. The rate was a little too high for the rooms, so I hope they don't jack them up higher after they renovate them.

After a stress filled spring, Peaks of Otter was the perfect place to take a deep breath and relax. My husband and I walked around the lake several times watching the deer graze and a blue heron taking flight. About a mile up the road on the Blue Ridge Parkway we saw a black bear coming down the middle of the highway and stopped and watched him lumber up the mountain side. Reserved for only one night to be sure our king size bed was comfortable. The next morning we went by registration and booked for the remainder of our time. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. In fact, have already registered for several nights the end of September.

Room Tip: All rooms have a beautiful view overlooking a lake with mountains in the background.

The Peaks are a lovely environment and the lodge doesn't disappoint. The rooms are older, but well-kept. They've recently been taken over by a private company, who has renovated the rooms a bit. WIFI and large-flat screen TVs are present.

Beautiful place to unwind, stay, eat, and enjoy. Check with the lodge when they will have local country/mountain musicians -- we stumbled upon a excellent musical pair after walking out, late, from the lodge to our room.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the lake. Select 1st floor for walkout access to lake area and 2nd floor fo...
