Much needed weekend getaway in the mountains.

Beautiful view from our room. Rustic and charming accommodations. Friendly staff and good food at the Skyland Tap house. I would definitely go back.

The whole place takes you back in time. A time when things were much less fast paced and you sheared with family.

What a wonderful experience we have at Skyland. We will definitely be back! The room we have is clean and comes with an amazing view. But what made our stay extra special is the customer service.

We were glad we paid for a premium room and called ahead to request a room with a valley view. The sunsets are spectacular. The unit was spacious and clean and within walking distance to the trailhead of the Stony Man hikes. My mother-in-law does not hike and therefore, it would have been nice to be near the lodge and...

The best desert of our trip by far. The Mountain Tap Room served us after two while the dining room was regrettably closed. The burger was good and the ice cream pie beyond description. Thank God another table had ordered it so we could see it's wonder. All worth the trip to Shenandoah.

Very beautiful place to visit, spectacular view over the mountains. We visited there in autumn and the colors were worth seeing. Liked that place very much.

Following a suggestion from a Park Ranger at one of the Visitor Centers, we stopped for a break at Skyland. It was not crowded mid-day in early Oct., and we had a window seat and could look out at the beautiful views. The blackberry ice cream was delicious as recommended and there was also a nice gift shop where we... More

The Skyland Resort is located in the middle of the park so it allows flexibility for hiking on nearby trails. The rooms have a different feel about them especially at night.
