“Really great overall experience,rooms have much to be improved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2010

I loved my stay in the Shanadoah Lodge and would come again in a minute.The overall atmosphere was great, the lobby and dinning room were up to my expectations, the entertainment which i didn't expect was very good, a nice surprise.The staff at the front desk knowlagable friendly and helpful,the staff in the dinningroom area too.When we needed assistance from the room cleaning staff (we booked the room for 3 people and ond had 2 towels), they were not as helpful. The general upkeep of the rooms themselves was not what I expected for the price I payed.There is much room for improvement in the rooms themselves.All the rest was exellent.Thanks.

It's a 2 star accommodation in my opinion. The rooms are old and less then average. But clean. No standard facilities like radio, mini-bar, internet etc. But you here for having a breath taking view from you terrace from Shenandoah NP! That's the reason you want to stay here in a green environment. The food in the restaurant is great, that surprised us.

Responded to post card ad for spring special. The room rate and special discounts were quite good. Weather was a bit inclement, but were still able to hike several trails. The food and food service in the lodge restaurant were outstanding and a good value. Enjoyed the experience so much that we added a third night to our stay.

I have traveled extensively in the US to National Parks but had never been to the Shenandoah area. Skyland is an old resort and knew it was going to be rustic. That's what I like about traveling to the National Parks the nostalgia, the history, getting back to nature! The hiking, nature, scenery, the old cabins and lodges that's what it's all about, for me at least.....if I wanted cushy, clean, updated and luxurious I could stay home!!

Lovely countryside retreat on the middle of skyline drive. Staff were really friendly and food was ok. Rooms are basic but clean but when you are in this beautiful area and paying this price it's acceptable. Go up the Stony Man Trail from the hotel, the views at the top beat any of the ones you see from the road and it's an easy trail which will only take about 45 mins to an hour to complete there and back!

Skyland Resort has become a favorite destination for my wife and me. Perched high on the mountain, Skyland allows you to experience the beauty of the landscape, the sudden and sometimes dramatic change in weather, the proximity of beautiful trails. The Restaurant is spectacular, light, airy, commanding a beautiful view, yet surprisingly warm. The food is very good, featuring local favorites. The service is excellent and friendly. The rooms have seriously stained carpets and the beds are awful, but when the sun is setting and (in good weather) we are sitting on our private porch, looking over the valley far below, we are already planning our next visit.
