The Peaks of Otter Lodge has been reopened along the Blue Ridge Parkway, although all National Park Service operations along the Parkway remain closed.
The lodge reopened less than a week after the Park Service relented and allowed the Pisgah Inn, located along the Parkway in North Carolina, to reopen. Delaware North Companies Parks & Resorts, which earlier this year landed the contract to manage Peaks of Otter Lodge, announced its reopening.
The restaurant opened Saturday with a limited menu for dinner service. The lodge is scheduled to remain open through December 1.
