We love the lodge at Peaks of Otter. The lodge is immaculate and attractive, with comfortable rooms and good food. But it's the setting that makes the place spectacular. Great views, great hiking, and a hypnotically peaceful beauty. If we lived closer, we would come more often.

This is one our very favorite places to visit. We now regularly visit twice a year and we are never, ever disappointed. The setting is gorgeous, the staff is friendly, the food is great, and the rooms are cozy and comfortable. And, of course, the hiking is superb!
