First off it needs to be said before you stay here that there is absolutely NO CELL SERVICE HERE!! This is a federal property (not mentioned either when booking the room). Masks are required no matter vaccination status. The host at the restaurant was rather rude as if we were bothering him. The lounge has a nice view…..that’s about it. Very beautiful quiet getaway just be prepared for no phone and wearing a mask. Also our room … windows were not cleaned before arrival. They had dog nose prints all over. I don’t think I would stay again.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Property was beautiful outside. A/C was old. At one point it started smelling like something was burning inside so I had to turn it off. I mainly used the fan setting. No phone in the room really bothered me. Front desk access was at the phone down the hall. I didn’t feel safe. Internet was so bad n was the cable tv access. No channels. Nite times were tough without tv for me. I wish they get the phone on the room n get better cable channels. The restaurant menus was very limited as well so I didn’t eat there.

We have been going to the Peaks of Otter for over 30 years and love the beauty of the serene lake, majestic Sharp Top Mountain, the great hiking trails and walking paths nearby and the fabulous park with picnic tables by a babbling brook!!
