Peaks of Otter Lodge Will Reopen Again Soon

Peaks of Otter Lodge: It's a beauty.
Those of you sweating the loss of the Peaks of Otter Lodge on the Blue Ridge Parkway can calm down now. Looks like it could re-open by early- to mid-summer with a new concessionaire. Delaware North, which operates concessions at several national parks, will re-open the lodge, restaurant and retail shops and will also run the shuttle to the crest of Sharp Top.

The lodge was closed after Thanksgiving. This is one of the iconic stops along the parkway for both its cafeteria brunches, lunches and dinners and for the lovely walk around the small lake beside the lodge. Thanksgiving lunch there has been a tradition of mine for a while now, so I won't have to miss another one (and maybe the food will even be good again; it hasn't in recent years).
