What a spectacular view of the mountains, the valley below, the wildlife surrounding our little hideaway, only a few hours outside of Washington, D.C. We decided on a whim to break out of the city and head off to a more quiet and secluded spot, and we were not disappointed. Why buy a mountain escape for the family to spend time with Mother Nature when Skyland is already available for us to enjoy without the headache of trying to maintain a "vacation place" in the mountains?

This was a family trip where we wanted to try and visit a National Park not too far away that had some great views. The place we stayed was a motel like structure that had an amazing view of the Shenandoah Valley. Once you were parked, they had community campfires at night and also some events at the main lodge. Food was ok, not great at the lodge, friendly service. I think all the rooms have a similar view and there are some other lodging options as well. We went on a few hikes and my daughter took a horseback ride as they have a stable where you can rent horses. There were a few places not too far away fro supplies and other adventures. A relaxing spot with incredible views.

The rooms are very nice. They are in a National Park so they are a little bit on the
casual side, but have everything that you need. We return often. The dining is very
good and there is a nice store also.

Romantic get away
Wonderful secluded and rustic. Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains this place though a bit pricey was perfect!!! We hiked, enjoyed beautiful scenery, ate well at the on site restaurant, saw wild life up close and generally reinvigorated our relationship.

There are many beautiful areas along the " Drive", and this one is one 0ur favorites. We only have about a 2 hour drive from our home in Ashland, and we make it frequently. A day "on the drive", can recharge your battery fully.
