It was a last minute decision to stay here after 8 hrs of motorcycle riding. So it was really convenient. We got room 135. It was kinda small but very clean and comfortable. What could have been a beautiful view was blocked by little trees. We paid $320 for one night. It was very quite and dark. I would say it would have been worth it if the view was clear off our balcony. The food at the restaurant was really good. Staff was extremely nice.

We stayed 2 nights in Raven. The room was clean...no critters as some of the reviews have stated. The towels were soft and the shower head and water pressure were the best of our 11 day journey which included some 'high end' hotels. The chef and manager both stopped at our table in the dining area. Get the turkey dinner!!! and raspberry ice cream or cobbler!!! It was foggy and windy when were were there so the view was not great, not Skyland's fault. However, it the trees were trimmed a bit there would have been a view.

We stayed in the Park View Cabin (#67). It was very nice. It had 2 bedroom/2 baths, kitchen table, living room, deck with chairs and picnic table. Kitchen had sink, small refrigerator, Keurig machine and microwave. Does not have dishes, utensils, dish soap. The bathroom was a nice size. Would of been very helpful to have a small table of in the bathroom. We woke up w/o hot water but maintenance came in no time after we called the front desk. The young man at the front desk was very nice and helpful.

First, the service at Skyland was fine, people were helpful. The service and food in the dining room was fine. And there’s a nice gift shop. The horse back riding was very nice. Nice gentle ramble through woods, with a chatty amiable guide. Views are not great from Skyland in the common areas. Trees block the valley views. They are building a new patio area that seems like it might have some views. The bad: We were give a room in Fell Cabin. It was up a small hill and had three accommodations in it. Our room had two double beds. Sheets were clean but stretched out over some cotton mattress pad that moved, so since not tight, there were wrinkles and sheets popped off. I would say the room was as clean as probably was possible in a room as outdated and rustic and in need of repair as this one was. There was a visible hump in the floor, so much so the one bed wasn’t level. The window frames were falling apart to the point that there was little holding in some panes of glass. There was a kind of sliding window screen to pull across the casement window, if you opened it and since no AC, I did, but there were gaps. So at height of summer I’m sure insects flew in. The bathroom was very basic and again, nothing was level in there. The cabin was set off by itself so was quiet with a bit of a view from the back. But the cabin room we had really needed some repairs and maintenance. For over $150 a night it was not at all worth it. They have other types of rooms, some in a kind of motel block that face the valley. They may be nicer. I don’t know though. We had another reservation for 2 additional nights 10 miles away at Big Meadow which was a huge improvement.

I read the reviews beforehand but I wasn't prepared for all the creatures and dirt in the 'preferred room'. I thought by paying 219/night, the room would be clean. We had to climb a steep, cracked sidewalk to get to room. My fitbit clocked it at 2 flights of stairs. People should be warned The location is great. The food was good and everyone was pleasant . Shenandoah is a beautiful place
