We stayed here in what we thought was a detached cabin. It was a "double" with two "rooms" per cabin and a flimsy wall in-between. You can hear your neighbors as if they are in your room (since they pretty much are). Views are nice from up there though.

We stayed here in May 2011 as two families -- my classmate from school drove from Morgantown, WV with his family while we drove down from MA -- and had a lovely 3-day stay at this beautifully located property. the rooms were nice and the restaurant and the food there was good too. all in all lovely memories!!

Majestic, wonderful place. feels so close to nature, so peaceful and relaxed. the restaurant is a bit pricey, but the dishes are delicious. Hiking is a treat there, and the views are marvelous. Fell in love in the place and would like to come back again someday.

Beautiful views, snowed 12", closed most of skyline drive but was still great. Made things a little difficult with the road closed, Thanksgiving buffet was great but a little expensive. Would certainly come back.

Our three adult children and granddaughter joined us for Thanksgiving at Skyland Resort. It snowed a lot the day before and we could not arrive on Wednesday as planned. We spent Thursday and Friday there and had wonderful warm accommodations. The food was good, the musical entertainment after supper was most enjoyable and the hiking trails were passable even in...

We were there right after Thanksgiving, and there was lots of snow! The views are always wonderful from any Skyland Lodge room, and it's fun to be able to stay in the park. Be sure to check your bill carefully before you leave -- in two visits in a row, there were mistakes, which the front desk straightened out. Also,... More

We really loved it. It was snowing - which is apparently very unusual - in the days after Thanksgiving. The chalet style rooms have simply incredible views - our 9 year old loved it. The food in the main dining hall is a bit old fashioned and institutional (and its too far to leave the park) - but that wasn't... More

This was not what I expected. The hotel has separate buildings with different kinds of rooms. The rooms were really nice--rustic yet modern. Our room has a huge TV with satellite which was nice. The furniture was newer and the entire complex was well kept. Location is good if you plan on hiking your entire stay; it's pretty far from... More

We spent Thanksgiving weekend at Skyland Lodge with friends and their 6 year old girl. There was a major snowstorm and power outage for a while, but the staff was fantastic in keeping everyone calm. The dining room was excellent and had great views. This was a very relaxing time for all!
