Enjoyed our stay. Historically significant location and buildings. Good restaurant. Good value. Stayed warm although it got down to 10 degrees.
Was disappointed that we didn’t get a room with a good view even though it was almost empty when we checked in and we stayed for 3 nights.

Date of stay: November 2017
Trip type: Traveled as a couple

The accommodations at Skyland are not five-star resort, but at the same time they are not cheap--you are paying mostly for location here, and that's fair, all things considered. Rooms are a good $200/night, even though you're out in "the country," but then again you have absolutely magnificent westward views on the Shanendoah Valley from your room, with tons of hiking and outdoor opportunities right outside the door, and minutes down/up the road.

We stayed at Raven's Nest, near the edge of the property, and that was great, away from cars and people. Make sure you check the property map to get a look at the layout, and make your choice accordingly. We were far away from Skyland Central, so it was either a long uphill walk to the Dining Room and office, or a drive in the car.

Parking is ample throughout the site, and it's free. There is no valet. Check-in was easy and simple, and you get old-fashioned keys on fobs--nice.

The room was a newly renovated one, with new flooring and a partially re-done bathroom. The flooring was excellent, and the bathroom with its stone and tile was also very nicely done, although if they were reworking the bathroom, replacing the obviously old and worn bathroom heater and exhaust fan should have been the choice. The heater worked great, but had to have been at least 20 years old, and showing it. The fan also worked, but had a failing bearing and after about two minutes of use issued an unbearable squeaking. The bath/shower was great, with super water pressure and great hot water, ample amenities. Toilet and sink were a bit close together, but there was ample counter space, and lots of rack space in the shower--nice.

The bed was big and comfy, but on a metal frame that was rather creaky/squeaky. There's a big LG TV, but who in the world would turn on the TV when there's so much to see outside? The room opens to the view out back.

A/C was good and responsive, with a digital thermostat, easy to use. There was no fridge or mini bar, and no closet, but a hanger area behind the door.

Both the front door and back door had security chains but not deadbolts. The doors did not seal very well, and there were clearly discernible drafts on the two very cold nights we stayed (the heater kept it at bay).

The walls are very thin, and normal conversations next door were clearly audible. The TV in a neighboring room was deafening.

There are ample plugs throughout the room for devices, as well as plugs on the lamps and bedside stands. Wi-Fi is not available in the rooms; it is only available at the main area, and is rather slow owing to the volume of use. I had some connectivity with my carrier, but it was spotty.

Housekeeping service were great and very accommodating.

Bottom Line: it's a bit spendy, of course, but not unreasonable. It's a great getaway in a magnificent location.

Room tip: Check the online map to choose your bldg/room location, whether you want to be far out or close in to the resort center.

This has been a hard one to rate. The pluses are very helpful front of house staff [we mixed up our bookings so didn't have one the day we arrived]. The only room available was in the pet friendly, and probably oldest, wing. We weren't in any position to be choosey!
So the good bits -The room was very clean, with an exceptionally comfortable bed with crisp white linen. The view from the balcony was spectacular. And we had somewhere to sleep!!!
The not so good bits- bathroom was fairly small and basic. Possibly because it was a pet room, there were signs of wear, chipped paint and possible chewing around the architraves and skirtings. The glass door to the balcony had a crack. At night the lighting was dim, and we could hear the TV in the next room.
If you want to stay in the park accommodation options are limited. I suspect other rooms here are better so don't dismiss this option because of my not so good bits.

If you are not into camping or are visiting beautiful Shenandoah National Park in inclement weather, Skyland is a good option for lodging. The park is a long narrow area centered along Skyline Drive which follows the crest of the mountains and Skyland is about one-third of the way south of the northern entrance to the park. We stayed in a motel type building, one of many scattered around the Skyland area. Our room was adequate and clean and the newly refurbished bathroom was lovely. The only drawback is that our room had a connecting door to the room next to us and we could hear every sound, cough, voice, TV, etc. as if both doors were open. Try for a non-connecting room if you want some rest. Otherwise, the place was lovely with a fireplace (including wood), a small refrigerator, views, and within easy walk of several trails and the restaurant.

We stayed here whilst on a tour in the US. The lodge is in the Shenandoah National Park and there is not a bad view to be seen. We stayed in cabins which whilst basic were still comfortable and clean. We had a small balcony with views over the valley, just stunning. There were deer wandering around the grounds. There is a restaurant at the main lodge, the food was good and not too expensive and the views sensational. We had TV in our cabin (not all of them have this) but no Wi-Fi but it was not real issue for the one night we were there. Worth it for the surroundings.
