Peaks of Otter Lodge

Nestled between two of the three mountains that make up the Peaks of Otter is the Peaks of Otter Lodge, located at Milepost 86 on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Bedford, Virginia. The Peaks of Otter Lodge boasts 63 rooms facing picturesque Abbott Lake. The Lake View Dining Room offers delicious food and a spectacular view of the lake.

Enjoy a refreshing drink in the Bear Claw Lounge as the sun sets over the lake. Relax and soak in the tranquil surroundings that Peaks offers.

Several trails offer hikers the opportunity to explore the peaks and surrounding countryside on foot. The least challenging is a one-mile loop around picturesque Abbott Lake. More demanding is the one and one-half mile course to the summit of Sharp Top Mountain.

So plan your vacation getaway to the Blue Ridge Mountains and include the Peaks of Otter Lodge as your lodging destination! Open weekends (Friday 11:30 a.m. through 3:30 p.m. on Sunday) from December 11 through March 13.  Open seven days a week beginning March 18, 2016.
