Skyland Drive is a terrific way to drive and still enjoy spectacular views. Approx 120 miles long above the valleys in Virginia, the scenery is wonderful. Unfortunately there is limited lodging along the way and the Skyland Lodge needs major overhaul. This used to be a decent facility but the lack of competition allows them to slack off.

We spent two nights at Skyland with no preconceived expectations. What a delight. The hiking was amazing! All the employees were extremely down to earth and friendly. We were very intrigued by the cloggers--a group of women between 13 and 76 years old who have been coming every Tuesday night for 32 years. All the money they earn is put... More

The view is breathtaking. The restaurant is gorgeous, the wait time was less than 10 min. Check out the patio at sunset! Our server, Michael W was top notch. One complaint... My roast chicken was dry, the veggies we wonderful. My husbands catfish was amazing as was our friends' steak. The best part, was the famous signature blackberry icecream pie!... More

Great way to travel off the main roads and also enjoy a mountain vacation, Appalachian Trail hikes and more. Good value. Good experience. Several room types available depending on your preference. We selected cabins and would do so again.

For our 1st trip to Skyland we were very pleased. The room was average & clean. The resort as a whole was very nice with plenty to do. The food at the dining room was very good especially the shrimp & grits.

We used Skyland as a two-night stop on our Shenandoah hike of 25 miles on the Appalachian Trail. It was a great decision. It is comfortable, convenient and the staff was very helpful. The menu is varied and everything we ate was just terrific. It will not be long until I return!

The hotel is run by Delaware North for the Park Service at about mile 41 in Shenandoah National Park. My wife and I were there for a few days and we attended the Apple Butter Festival on the grounds. The big plus is the location. Our room had a beautiful view out West towards Luray, VA and the Massanutten range.... More

If you like staying in an outdoor area,this is the place. We booked a traditional room but when we saw it,we were not happy. Old, musty smelling and no way to get fresh air. We were upgraded to a suite which was much better and recently renevated. Book your room by the lodge so you can walk to meals. Staff... More

We've stayed at Skyland twice: once in July 2014 and again in July 2016, and really enjoyed our stay both times. The property is fantastic. Definitely the nicest and most convenient option for hiking and enjoying Shenandoah National Park. They have a restaurant on site, which is pretty decent. The property is fairly large, with different types of rooms. Be... More

Loved the location, great views. Hikes close by were good. Just a short walk to restaurant and lounge! Absolutely would stay here again! Left early in the morning and saw bear and deer on the road near the hotel.
