At the highest point on Skyline Drive (3,680 feet, milepost 41.7), with views across the Shenandoah Valley, this facility has lodging that ranges from rustic cabins and motel-style rooms to suites. This resort is one of three different properties within the park: Big Meadows Lodge (milepost 51.0), originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, is in a spectacular setting surrounding by grassy meadows full of deer and wildlife. Lewis Cabins (milepost 57.5) is the real deal—very rustic cabins for an authentic outdoor adventure. Since these three properties in the park are in sought-after locations, you'll need to book up to a year in advance. There's no air-conditioning, but days above 80°F are rare at this altitude.

I was so impressed with Skyland Resort! I didnt' have very high expectations, given the fairly low price, but it is wonderful here! The staff was super-nice and helpful- very accommodating! The room was very clean and much nicer than I had thought it would be. The restaurant was great- nice menu, great service, etc. And of course, you're sitting in the middle of the absolutely gorgeous Shenandoah National Park, so the atmosphere is beyond compare!
I highly recommend this place! We stayed only one night, but for only $189 we got a room with a beautiful view of the Shenandoah Valley from our balcony and dinner and breakfast for two at their wonderful restaurant. It's $15 entrance into the park, but money so well spent!
