I haven’t even stayed at the lodge and have had so much trouble with their reservation line. I received a $200 gift card for Peaks of Otter Lodge at our wedding. Since I had a gift card I was ok with having a debit card...More

Old cabins but homey...liked the rustic porch and views to die for. Stayed only one night on our way home to Ohio...would stay again if traveling that way. We arrived after dark and it was wonderful to wake up to the view of the lake...More

The scenery and grounds are very well maintained. The lodge, not so much. Old everything including the "Recently Renovated" bathroom. What are they talking about? Heat works but is incredibly loud. Your choice is cold or inferno. White pillow shams are not washed between guests......More

Anne, wanted to apologize for your stay. I am not sure what room you were in but the renovated bathrooms, white pillow shams and pet rooms are not all in the same room. Building #2 has the renovated baths, building #3 has the shams and...More

Great views, Nice place to stay after we hiked the Sharp top and Flat top mountains. Good food but no cell service. Was kind of a great break. Do recommend. We ate at the diner for breakfast and dinner and the meal was good.

If you are that afraid of driving maybe you shouldn't drive. The roads are not that bad but I live in the Smoky's so I am used to it. If you do decide to drive it be courteous and use the pull-outs and allow other drivers to... More
