did not like the fact that there was no wi-fi service though it says wi-fi free access on the web site. TV had limited service. Other than that we had a good stay.

Hotel was okay. Nothing more. It would help if the lake had paddleboats etc.

Thank you for your input. The lodge isn't fancy but the real beauty is on the outside. With every room facing Sharp Top mtn and Abbott Lake you couldn't ask for a more picturesque spot. There have been discussions with the park service regarding paddle board but disrupting the wildlife is a major concern. We are constantly adding on and improving services so we hope you will visit again.

Serene setting right off the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Pros: The setting and food were stellar. The beds were clean and comfortable.
Cons: The bathroom could use some updating!
Location: Vistas and hiking!
We will definitely return to the Peaks of Otter. Very serene setting right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The staff were very nice and truly accommodating. We ate at the restaurant which was excellent!
