The Peaks of Otter area of Virginia's Blue Ridge has been enjoyed by tourists since the first inn was established here around 1830. Archaeological evidence indicates that this has been a hunting and camping grounds for more than 8000 years. A modern lodge, built in 1964, now stands here. These are the only accommodations to be found immediately along the Blue Rigde Parkway.
Rooms at the lodge are quite basic and rely primarily on their location for their charm. Standard rooms have no TV or phone. However, each room has a picture window's view of Abbott Lake. From your room, it's possible to take only a few steps to join a 1-mile path around the lake or cast your line to see if the catfish are biting. The lodge also offers a dining room, coffee shop and gift shop.
