Let me start by saying HOLY VIEWS. We stayed in the Laurel building. Word of warning: If you have mobility issues ask to stay on the top floor! There is no elevator and no way to get there without taking two sets of stairs. If you stay on the top floor you can access your room with no stairs necessary. The parking is fairly flat and level. In mid-October it got down to the upper 30s with tons of wind so dress warmly. The views are absolutely stunning. The beds were comfortable and the room stayed very warm despite the cool temperatures. Shower pressure was good but the shower head is SHORT. I stand at 5’4” and only had a few inches of clearance. Happy travels!

Hit or miss

We booked a premium (recently renovated) room here. The room was a mix of old and new, with the bathroom, flat screen TV, and floors looking new, and the doors and grates looking original. I think the room could have been cleaned a lot better- there were crumbs left on the end table and floor from the last occupant, but at least the bathroom looked clean. The walls were thin and the wi-fi was weak, but that’s kind of to be expected. I liked the eco-friendly soap dispensers. It looked like each of the rooms in our building had a semi-private patio or balcony with chairs overlooking the valley, and we really enjoyed ours- we sat out on our patio every night watching the light fade over the valley. We had a room on the first floor, and unfortunately the A/C from the room above us dripped water into our room. We also had bugs entering our room, and while that isn’t unexpected when staying in a park, I would definitely recommend asking for an upper floor room- it might reduce the number of incursions. The resort itself is a huge place, so hang on to the map that they give you at check-in. We drove to the on-site restaurant the first night, but found the right path and walked there the second night. The little coffee stand next to the restaurant is a gem, with good coffee, baked goods, and sandwiches to go, available all day.

We LOVE Skyland. If you want peace and quiet this is the place.

If you want to chill this is the place. There is no WIFI in the hotel rooms and tha'ts great cause you can spend your time looking out. The grounds are beautiful and there is usually a bear or two..just listen to the other guests. On Tuesday nights the cloggers come into the bar. These women have been doing this for 35 years and their story is amazing. The food in the restaurant has come a long way and is not as stuffy as it used to be. Great Staff too.

Nice, big and rustic-style rooms. Clean and comfortable. Staff were very nice. We drank and ate at the bar and the food and service were good. The wifi wasn't very good at all but being in the mountains I guess that's not unexpected.

Watching the sun go down over the Shenandoah Valley and the mountains beyond, from the porch outside our room, made our stay at Skyland memorable. And we spent a very pleasant evening in the Tap Room, with decent food and music from a couple playing bluegrass and country. The room was OK, but the path back down to it from the main buildings was almost completely unlit and would have been unusable without a torch.
