We stopped here once a few years ago, and I remembered the food was ok. But this trip made me wonder what I remembered. My chicken wrap was not very good, poorly wrapped, and much of the small amount of chicken was hard and over cooked. My wife's 1/4 roasted chicken looked more like a pigeon. It and the broccoli with it was over cooked and arrived cold. I had potato soup that was luke-warm and tasted like paste. She had asparagus soup that was cold and contained no asparagus!

Appreciated the high elevation, majestic mountain views from the room porch, quiet setting amidst wilderness, green emphasis on cleaning and products in the room, and close access to hiking trails. Would be nice for television noise to not travel through the walls into neighboring rooms, which slightly took away from the quiet nature of this resort.

The views are amazing with great hiking trails and tons of wildlife. Our cabin was the historic Fell 173 which was a spacious apartment with a huge picture window. It was quaint, peaceful and very rustic. Fixtures especially the bathroom were very old and outdated so please don't come expecting modern conveniences and luxury. But if you want an out of the way rustic experience the place is awesome. We saw numerous bears and deer during our visit to Shenandoah National Park.

Was a lovely getaway. Great views. The only area lacking is food options. There's a small bistro, and restaurant. Plan ahead and bring some dry food to save money (no fridges in the cabins)! We were able to eat in mostly and, but went to the taproom for a drink and some music. All in all great time and experience.

Walk around the property to check on which of the property you would like to stay - you will be amazed on the choices. If you like to be close to the playground - you can indicate that on your reservation and they will try to accommodate your request. Or near to the ice-vending machine or the hotel restaurant. I am very pleased with that.

I just spent a night in Skyland which is a local getaway for us. The room was rustic, but comfortable. I appreciate the dated features--pine paneling and an old fireplace. The room was dark so we had to remove the curtains. Most rooms have a private deck. It is quiet and peaceful. Breakfast in the dinning room was beautiful, but the eggs were overcooked. The pub was nice for a light dinner and local micro brewery beer.

This was our second visit to Skyland. Our cabin (Peak View) was great for a family and much better than last time (Volmer). The resort itself seems to be getting a slow update and is in need of it in places. WiFi in the cabin was woeful and the showers are still like hosepipes but the overall experience is good. Only issue was a very poor check out. We left early (staff had been told about this on check in) but could not get a final bill as was told it had to go through night audit (really?... Read more

If you are near Skyline Drive or Shenandoah National Park and need a place to eat or stay, this is a place I'd highly recommend. It's on Skyline Drive. The rooms are not luxurious, but lovely and clean. The restaurant was good and had enough options for my vegetarian and picky eaters. And the views! Whether hiking, or eating in the restaurant or just walking around the property, the views were amazing. A unique way to experience Shenandoah National Park.

A beautiful place to stay, right in the park! Convenient trails connect the resort areas (there is also the option to drive). The park is located at the starting point of some nice hikes, and within close proximity to many others. There is a bar and restaurant at the main lodge. The restaurant is a little pricy, but nothing unexpected for the location. They have a nice selection of local beer and wine. If staying for more than a couple of nights, I'd recommend a cabin w/ kitchenette, to give y... Read more

We had a great week in the Shenandoah National Park. It's a great place if you are an outdoors sort of person. Great hikes, scenery, lots to see. We got up close to white tail deer and black bears whilst out hiking. Luray caverns also worth a visit, but avoid going on a weekend when the queues are very long. The Skyland Resort was a let down. Our room was basic, good king size bed but very little else. Apart from the bed the room was fairly primitive. The advertised wifi was useless. Th... Read more

We loved the cozy, rustic cabin, even in the rain. The view from the dining room of the Skyland Lodge was incredible. We were above the clouds. There is an inviting patio with a great view, but the weather and a two year old grandson didn't cooperate for us to relax there. We hope to return to enjoy it.

During our recent visit to the US, we decided to spend a couple of days at the Shenandoah National Park. We made reservations at Skyland, flew in to Washington DC from Austin, spent a night in Maryland and drove to Shenandoah the next morning. We chose what we called the scenic route from Maryland. It was long, a little tiring, but highly rewarding in terms of the views it offered along the entire route. We stopped at many places to take in the view. When we arrived at Skyland, we had to go to ... Read more

Very few better places for great views exist in the East. You have the choice of the Shenandoah Valley or views from within a cloud (rather eerie at times!) That is the good news. Bad news is else where within Skyland. We only stayed in one of the original cabins and it could have been outstanding but was not. The Fell cabin is in need of major overhauls and repair. The only thing nice about the bathroom was a newer sink and faucet. We chose not to take a bath and the toilet needs a new valve. ... Read more

Lovely location. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Trails, horses, dining room all close to lodge. Dinner at the lodge was really delicious: pesto trout and shrimp and cheese grits were both excellent. Only critique is really bad coffee at breakfast, so i ended up getting a latte at the grab and go stand which was fresher. I recommend Skyland! I will be going back!

The location is outstanding; the views and wildlife are worth every penny. Our room could have been nicer, but it was adequate.

Beautiful place but one suggestion: The website allows you to reserve by room type and price (standard, premium, etc) but what we wanted was a room with a balcony and a view. We tried emailing this request but the email bounced back to us. So we didn't end up with what we wanted. It would be a considerable improvement if guests could reserve a specific room. We now know which cabins we like but there is no easy way to specify that when making the reservation.

Pleasant, rustic setting. Beautiful views. Great food. Enjoy taking my dog so he is not left behind in a kennel. Wonderful areas to explore on and off the mountain. Great trails from easy to difficult to hike.

Food was average but service in restaurant was a joke. the room was like that found in a motel but with a killer view and clean enough. No refrigerator or microwave but with cable TV. The service in the restaurant was apathetic and bordering on rude.

Nice renovations to the room we had, well configured and comfortable for 4 adults and 1 child. We plan on returning.next year. Well insulated and felt very private, even though the resort was fairly full. Wish a few trees limbed for a better view, but still a lovely setting among the trees and rock outcroppings. Food was tolerable, the gift shop barren, people pleasant. We came for the setting and were a little nervous about the room, due to some reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised!

We had a great time with a lousy view from our room but the rest of our experience was wonderful and we would like to go again when we have more time and money. Skyland resort had great people working there and went above the call of duty to please all the guest.

Great location as it's nearly the highest point of Skyline drive and sunrise/sunset view is special. The premium room seems the newest but still requires some update. But again you don't spend much time in the room when you are there so don't think this would be an issue. Front desk is very busy so prepare some waiting time. Also very popular so make sure to book in advance. Breakfast/dinner restaurant is lovely with fantastic view. Services and food quality are satisfying too. The weak phone... Read more

OK, first the good points, great location, spectacular views, the food was a lot better than expected and the room looked out over the Shenandoah valley and with the sun shining it was perfect and peaceful. The whole place didn??t have the charm of Quinault in Washington State and I suppose it does need a refurb but as it??s in the middle of nowhere it??s still pretty good. Continuing the positives there was good live music with Bluegrass duo Bradley Davis; Don from New Orleans was a great se... Read more

Cabin 53. Check in was pleasant,fast & accurate Our cabin was just the way we like it, clean n simple and most important no TV. Our 11 yr old daughter and friend had a wonderful 2 night stay here. We did a few waterfall hikes, saw a blackbear cub. Food in the lodge was great, service was good and it was nice to talk to other guests. We had a wonderful time here and believe Delaware North is doing a fine job operating this resort.

We have enjoyed our last two stays at Skyland immensely! The view is absolutely beautiful, and the staff has always been very accommodating and friendly. We love the bar area for its food, drinks, and live music, and we hope to return next year

We enjoyed our stay at Skyland resort. We booked two rooms: pet-friendly room and remodeled room. Pet-friendly room had a great view and was simple and spacy. The remodeled room was really nice, close to the restaurant, but small and no view. We enjoyed Skyland lodge, however food was pretty bad. Breakfast is $15/person, 10/child, was cold, greasy, not testy, can't get coffee/cream/refills/etc. Restaurant food at dinner time wasn't good also, however service was good and life music was excell...

Enjoyed a night at Skyland on a drive down the Skyline Drive. The facilities are older but very clean and well kept; the staff is friendly and accommodating; the food in the restaurant was great and the views are unparalleled! Would definitely go there again.

The last time I visited, they were doing construction on the walkways which was quite annoying. But the result is a very nice series of walks, with animal tracks in the cement. Check in and check out were very easy. We had a dinner and breakfast package, and enjoyed the lights of Luray from the dining room window, though the trees have grown up so much that the view is getting limited. The Osso Bucco was as good, and plentiful, as the last time--why get anything else? But the crab cakes wer... Read more

We stayed here in November whilst we spent a couple of days walking in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We stayed in Hemlock which is one of the older cabins. Accepting that comfort may be a little compromised because of this we enjoyed staying there very much. The heating was necessary and was sufficient for comfort although we were pleased that there were extra blankets. The restaurant and other facilities are a steep walk up through the woods. We took the car to dinner as it was very dark and c... Read more

My friend and I stayed at Skyland resort 3 nights while hiking in Shenandoah. Room was OK. Next time I'd try to pick one with better view. The food at the lodge restaurant was not very good. We had 6 meals and all were 50/50. We could have driven out of the park to eat but we didn't want to hassle with that. Just a word of warning: don't expect great food. It's pretty much school cafeteria stuff. Maybe someone will read this and taste what they're serving, and hopefully make improvements.

I think they are soo busy they don't care if they offer customer service. We checked in and the front desk was nice but a little overwhelmed. There was a lot of confusion. We stopped in the bar and the bartender was nice but again overwhelmed. We decided to get something to eat and when we approached the waitress (who was just standing there) she said we could eat in the bar. When I said the only bartender was very busy she said he wasn't that busy. It was obvious she did not want to help. We st... Read more

The room was very neat and clean, with beautiful views from the balcony. All staff members were friendly and accommodating. All in all, a fine place to get away from the city, enjoy the mountains, and view wildlife.

We really enjoyed our return trip to Skyland and the Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park. The landscapes are beautiful, the accommodations at Skyland were comfortable, and the food service dining at the Pollack Dining Room was excellent. We will return in the near future!

I love Shenandoah - and I have wanted to stay at Skyland for a while, which I did in November. The views were beautiful and the room was roomy, adequate and pleasant. If you are looking for the Hyatt don't stay here. Breakfast at the main dining room was wonderful and the waitress was very friendly, as were the other staff members. Food was good and view was awesome. I will come back.
