My mom, grandma and I took a trip to drive the Skyline Drive and decided to splurge and stay here. It was well worth it!! The room was cozy and nicely decorated. The view off the balcony was beautiful and we relaxed out there peacefully. We really enjoyed staying here and I would splurge and stay here again when I go back to Shenandoah.
I had never been to the Shenandoah Valley and decided to stay at Skyland. I was traveling from out of state so checked it out on the web site and booked over the telephone. The room I reserved showed a beautiful view and so I felt it was worth the close to $600 cost for two nights. I arrived that evening and checked in only to find out they had put me in a room in the woods with no view....nothing but a wooded area, when I complained to the front desk that it was nothing like what I booked... they did nothing and said they were booked up and couldn't change anything....they were useless and I had a feeling they probably do this all the time....bait and switch....so I paid almost $600 dollars for a view of a few trees in the woods. The bulb on the floor lamp in the room was burned out and the outside small deck hadn't been cleaned...it was dirty and covered with leaves. I would recommend to anyone thinking about staying there....think twice. I will never go back. Will go to NC Mountains instead. Staying at Skyland made it a bad experience.
