  • We recently stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms. The lodge was originally built in 1935, so after renovation it still retained the rustic look. However, the bathroom was nicely updated, the room was clean, freshly painted, and neat. The people working the front desk were courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable about the area. The grounds were kept neat and clean. The food was good. Information about the area along Skyline Drive was readily available. Activities available are hiking, horseback riding, and wildlife watching. There are many opportunities for beautiful views along the parkway and from the lodge itself.
  • I wasn't originally planning to stay here but I tried booking a room for a Saturday night the day before we arrived. Of course, it being a summer weekend, they were all booked at both Skyland and Big Meadows. But, I tried looking again the next day and was able to find a room for a reasonable price. Score! Check-in process was quick and easy. They provided a map and the woman at the desk highlighted the directions and cabin so we were able to find our way and not get lost. We lucked out and our cabin had a pretty nice view of the valley below, and, if we wanted, the trail that led up to Skyland was right behind our cabin. But that also meant that there was some extra foot traffic around our cabin because other guests were also using this trail. The cabin wasn't super luxurious, they just had some toiletries, a keurig, and some fans. There is no refrigeration or AC, so they had the windows nailed open. There was also some fans provided. I did not try the shower. The bedding looked pretty clean, the mattress was comfortable and not too hard, and I slept well through the night. Overall, probably only worth the $155 a night to be near so many great hiking trails.
