We've stayed at this hotel twice and we really love it. If you're looking for fancy rooms, then you are in the wrong place. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. We had no tv, but we wouldn't have even turned it on, so we didn't care. There's a coffee maker and some basic supplies (coffee, tea, etc.) We go... More

We've been visiting Shenandoah all our lives starting when we were dating in the 70's. Back then we camped in Matthew's Arm with my mom and siblings. We've visited Big Meadows and Skyland with our own kids, and I must say, Skyland is a favorite. Please don't expect state of the art anything. Your room will likely not have a... More

WIth my family growing up in the 60s, on my own, and with my wife of the last twenty five years, I've been to the national park and Skyland (and Big Meadows and Lewis Mountain ...) probably a couple of hundred times. It remains close to our hearts as a cherished place, because of the serenity, the air, the scenery,... More

We stayed at the Skyland Resort for a couple nights while we were exploring Shenandoah National Park. The location cannot be beat and the price for our room (a cabin) was affordable. Booking a cabin at Skyland was absolutely the way to go for us and we were completely satisfied. We spent long days hiking outdoors and really only came... More

Our room overlooked the valley. We saw deer,bear, and many birds from our window. Fog came in one morning and covered the mountain with a light coating of snow Beautiful. We go into Lurray or front royal to eat. Uncle Bucks for breakfast is a good bet in Lurray(fried green tomatoes). The Apple Tree in Front royal( apple wood smoked... More

I agree with a lot of what the other poster (sgc13) said about their Thanksgiving 2012 trip. We'd been to Shenandoah a number of times, but this was the first time we ever stayed at one of the "resorts" there. It was great to be right off Skyline Drive and jsut a drive or even a walk away from the... More

I stayed here over Thanksgiving with my husband and toddler. We had a wonderful time hiking and relaxing. The resort is very family friendly, and the restaurant was very receptive to dining with a toddler. The staff is helpful without being pushy, and the rooms are comfortable. Skyland offers a Thanksgiving buffet which was amazing. Exploring the outdoors with my... More

Dated facility, but exceptionally managed and maintained. Comfortable bed, everything worked. Excellent food at a reasonable price. Entertainment at night by local musicians. Starbucks coffee. But beware, we were told the current management team (ARAMARK) is being replaced next year. We have travelled much of the US and Aramark managed properties always seem to be exceptional. Hopefully, this property will... More

Skyland Resort is comfortable mountain lodge with pine-paneled rooms, magnificent views into the Shenandoah Valley, and easy access to the best hiking trails in the southern Appalachians. The air is pure, the scenery is spectacular and the eating is great at the restaurant inside the main building. Smell the wood burning in the big stone fireplace, look out the wall... More

I don't know, maybe it is just us...but at 130/night,I don't want rodents. I do want smooth flooring. Rustic meaning "without TV or WIFI" is okay. Saying something is rustic when it really is neglected and in disrepair is a rip-off. Aramark is lucky they have the government contract and that there is no where else to stay once you... More
