Peaks of Otter Lodge Celebrates Grand Reopening Friday

Bedford Co, VA- The Peaks of Otter Lodge celebrated its grand re-opening Friday.

Local, state and regional dignitaries were treated to lunch and a tour.

The once empty rooms now have televisions, coffee makers and a Wi-Fi connection. The site closed last November, but re-opened under a new operator in July.

"We were kind of rushed to open so we wanted to have an official kick-off, an official grand opening. We wanted to bring people back and show them the changes that have been made and also talk about the changes that are in the future," said General Manager Robert Peters.

Governor Bob McDonnell made a declaration on the re-opening of the Peaks of Otter Lodge. Congressman Bob Goodlatte and Senator Mark Warner sent representatives from their offices.
