Peaks of Otter Lodge is one of the most beautiful places to stay along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Surrounded by the pristine Blue Ridge Mountains, this spectacular lodge provides the perfect home base from which to explore the area.

Guests can hike several trails that lead from the lodge, explore historic cabins and farms, and even stroll along the famous Appalachian Trail. Situated nearby, the three mountain peaks that make up the Peaks of Otter offer great hiking: Sharp Top, Flat Top, and Harkening Hill – all over 3,000 feet high, providing jaw-dropping views of the surrounding landscape.
