"Very lovely but rustic lodge. Beautiful scenery on the lake surrounded by mountains. The restaurant had great service and the food was delicious!"
"This was a wonderful very relaxing and beautiful stay. Yes the lodge is older but it is so clean and well kept. We will return for sure!!"
"This is a favorite place of ours to visit. It's beautiful and peaceful. There's a lovely walking path around Lake Abbott. The lodging, restaurant and bar are great. If you're looking for something modern and high end, this is not the place for you. If you're looking for someplace quiet set in the midst of natural beauty, with clean, comfortable rooms and very good food, Peaks of Otter is definitely the place to go."
"This is a beautiful spot for relaxing and getting close to nature. View from the room of Abbott Lake was picturesque. Room was very well kept, very quiet. Dinner at the restaurant was just fabulous. Every single person on staff was so nice. This was our second stay here and we will definitely be back."
"Beautiful views from every room. Comfortable and clean rooms with your choice of balcony or patio. Very quiet and peaceful getaway. Food and wait staff was excellent. The grounds were immaculate. We will definitely be back."
