Have stayed at Skyland countless times over the years and love it more each time we go. Staff has been very accommodating. Menus at the restaurant offer a good choice. We just love the peace and solitude with nature and just unwinding.

If you're driving along Skyline Drive, Skyland is good stop. There's a lodge with a restaurant but also a great place to have a picnic too (the view is great!). There are restrooms and several trails leave from here.
