Staying at Skyland Resort Shenandoah National Park

"The beauty

and charm

of the wilderness

are his for the asking,

for the edges

of the wilderness

lie close beside

the beaten roads

of the present travel."

Teddy Roosevelt

The rooms at Skyland Resort are rustic, even the newly renovated premium rooms, which is what we stayed in. The rooms don't have refrigerators, but they do have TVs. We didn't use ours, but our neighbors did and we could easily hear it through our walls. There was AC, a nice bathroom and shower, and comfortable beds. They were on the small side, though, so we each slept in our own bed. Jeff's 6'4" and he's a restless sleeper. We chose the lodge for its location, and it was perfect for our hikes.

Our room opened to a little private deck area where we enjoyed our morning coffee and our after-hike drinks. Some of the buildings closer to the lodge have mountain views. We couldn't see mountains from our deck but we enjoyed looking out into the woods.

Each staff member at Shenandoah National Park was helpful. The service at the lodge and restaurant was great. The food is fair and on the expensive side, though. You're paying for the view and setting. We ate dinner there twice, and drove into Luray for dinner the other night.
