  • If you're driving along Skyline Drive, Skyland is good stop. There's a lodge with a restaurant but also a great place to have a picnic too (the view is great!). There are restrooms and several trails ...  more »
  • We stopped for lunch at the restaurant at this cabin resort in Shenandoah National Park. The views from the deck are spectacular and the lush forest is very calming. It looks like it would be a nice p...  more »
  • It was on our bucket list to see the FULL Blue Ridge Parkway, beginning on the Shenandoah National Park side at mile marker zero on Skyline Drive. So, we came and began our journey here. I must say it...  more »

  • We stayed here mid November and it was a great stay. The views were fantastic, it was fun knowing you were on the mountain/in the woods but in nice lodging at the same time. The greatest part was sitting on the balcony over looking the valley. The staff was very friendly, however the menu in the main dining area was very limited and the food was kind of bland. The bar side had some more fun food items and was very nice as well. We will definitely return for more stays.
  • It's a great place to visit. It's kind of an anchor for your visit to the drive. There are good, real bathroom facilities which is nice to have after enjoying the scenery for a while. The food is pretty good, but the service can be painfully slow, and they restaurant is only open certain hours. The gift shop is the best, offering branded items as well as locally made crafts. Make sure to walk around the property and enjoy.
  • I stopped by Skyland restaurant as I was motorcycling down south Skyline Drive. It was such a cozy and welcoming place! The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. They accommodated my request for the seat by the window, and were very attentive while serving food. The burger was quite delicious, served nicely. Dessert is a must! They have an ice-cream pie. It's AWESOME. I look forward to my next adventure to Skyland Restaurant :)
  • This is our second year staying at Skyland for Thanksgiving and my entire family loves it. The dinner buffet is delicious and we get to spend time together with no cooking or cleaning up. The hiking is wonderful. We'll definitely be back.
  • The food was very good. The room had no room phone (had to use a cell phone to call the front desk), no TV, no radio, and the alarm clock was plugged into a receptacle controlled by a wall switch so that turning off the lights turned off the clock. The wall heater in the bed room had no control knob for the temperature. The rooms in the suite were spacious and the living room had a wood burning fireplace. The suite had three decks. Not especially good for the solo traveler.

Where to stay in Shenandoah National Park

All developed accommodation in Shenandoah National Park lies on or near Skyline Drive. The park offers one lodge, one resort, and one set of cabins, all of which a private concessionaire operates. With 179 rooms, rustic cabins, multi-unit lodges, and modern suites, Skyland Resort provides the most places to turn in for the night. You can also choose one of four campgrounds, all of which remain open through spring, summer, and fall. Of these, only Matthews Campground accepts reservations; if you plan to visit the park on a summer or fall weekend, arrive early at the other campgrounds to grab a site. Plenty of inns, bed and breakfasts, resorts, motels, and hotels surround the park. Stay in the nearby college town of Harrisonburg if you're looking for a lively nighttime setting.
