This unpretentious, peaceful lodge is so popular in the fall that reservations are accepted beginning October 1 for the following year (but it's open year-round). Every room looks out on Abbott Lake from a private terrace or balcony, and their interiors have a folksy quality. Nestled between two of the three peaks of its namesake, the lodge was built in 1964. In non-winter months a complimentary bus takes you to Sharp Top Mountain if you prefer not to hike, and you can
see the same mountaintop from the lodge's Lake View Restaurant.
