Surprisingly lovely in the park
We expected rustic! But our room was clean, comfortable, well lit, connected to tv (we needed for work). Beautiful location!
No wifi, mediocre restaurant. But its a NATIONAL PARK! The soap smelled like the woods and the beds were so comfortable!!!
We will be back!

Nice place to stay in the park
We stayed here for one night while travelling form Washington to the mountainlake logde
We stayed in a lodge wich was so and so! Everthing is old, damp and needs refurbishing but that also has its charme of an old lodge. The food was ok nothing special
Its quite expensive
Would go again because of its position in the park not for the rooms

Spectacular Views *Average Restaurant *Average Rooms
Stayed here in the main lodge first full weekend of September. Our room was very small with a hard double bed. The room itself smelled very musty until we had the windows open with the fan running for almost 12 hours.
The restaurant onsite is overpriced with average food. Wine was over 10 a glass and entrees over 20. Luckily we found the bar with less expensive food the second night. Breakfast was good and reasonably priced.
If we return we will try a cabin with a queen bed and bring more food from home.
Loved the views from the deck of lodge.

Great stay at lodge, with good food in dining area
The Big Meadows lodge is truly rustic and a good place to stay while exploring Shenandoah NP. The amenities are simple and comfortable. We liked the small touch, such as Stress Relief products, from Bath & Bodyworks! :)
The lodge dining hall has a good selection of food and being a vegetarian, I had several choices, including vegan ones. The staff at the lodge and the dining hall were very friendly. Overall, a good stay.

It was what it needed to be.
The room was clean by 1970's dated. Perfectly adequate and functional just not fancy. It was a lot cheaper than Skyland. (and presumably just as adequate). the beds and sheets were comfortable. I would stay again if I needed to. The dining room was nice and food was ordinary. Its a seasonal place so keep it in perspective.
