BEDFORD, Va. (AP) -- The Peaks of Otter Lodge and Restaurant on the Blue Ridge Parkway will reopen July 15.
The lodge and restaurant in Bedford County had closed in November 2012 after its previous operator decided not to bid on a new contract.
The new operator, Delaware North Companies, tells media outlets that the facility will be open through mid-December.
The company is looking to fill 72 seasonal positions.
Delaware North says it also plans to upgrade the 63-room lodge.
