Booking experience: To book the room, I called the reservation office and asked about a room that has: a balcony & a view, updated amenities and AC. The reservation clerk offered a Premium room w/king bed. She assured me, that all premium rooms have been updated recently and have nice views of the valley. Satisfied with an offer, I confirmed...

Skyland Resort is a great mountaintop retreat. There are breathtaking views from the rooms and the dining areas. The food is reasonable priced and the entertainment offered was nice. The rooms themselves are nothing fancy but were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the room had the rustic feel we wanted. The location of the resort was perfect for our... More

Skyland is very accessible the Washington D.C. area and provides good value for the money. The Shenandoah National Park is a great place for hiking, scenery and to view wildlife. During the summer, the temperature is usually 8 to 10 degrees cooler than the Washington area and there is no pollution.

The Shenandoah area is a great way to unwind for a few days. The Skyland has great views of the mountains, centrally located for good hikes and vistas...and the lodge (restaurant) has decent food. A great getaway for the weekend.

When you awake in the morning looking out of the window of your room (still laying in bed) and could see so many miles over the Shenandoah-Valley and the Appalaches - thats realy awesome! Never before such a view out of my hotel. And the sunset directly shining on your balcony with a glass of wine or a beer -... More

This is one of our go to places for short get-away's. Located just off of the Skyline Drive, It is a great mix of rustic mountain accommodations, great food, beautiful views and mountain activities. The rooms are comfortable, and some come with great views. The food in the restaurant is always good. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast there. There is... More

Very nice place in the middle of Shenandoah National Park. Great little cabins, reasonably priced, lots of great hiking in the area. Would not recommend the Pollock Dining Room for dinner. Food so-so and not worth the price. Instead, recommend driving down to Big Meadow Lodge and the Spottswood Dining Room (about 10 miles south).

Disclaimer--the hotel suffered a lightening strike a few days before we checked in. Their computers (desktops) were out and they apparently did not have backups/laptops. Checkin took waiting in line for the better part of an hour. Anything but relaxing. By the time we checked out, still no wifi. Check in-- rude uncaring Andrea (front desk supervisor) placed us in...

But the proximity to nature and the restaurant staff ensure we will return. During the day, we enjoyed casual walks through the woods and saw plenty of wildlife, including a black bear, lots of dear, chipmunks, wildflowers, and butterflies. The waitress and bartender at the Mountain Taproom were terrific. The sunset views from the Pollock Dining Room restaurant and a... More

Wonderful place to experience the Park. Many nearby hiking trails for all ages with an excellent "resort" center, friendly staff, good menu in dining room and nightly entertainment make Skyland excellent for a 2-3 day stay.
