Skyland Resort - Shenandoah National Park
Skyland Resort, first called Stony Man Camp, was begun in 1888 by George Freeman Pollock, Jr. Influential in establishing Shenandoah as a national park, Pollock chose the perfect spot for his summer retreat. At 3,680 feet, the highest point on the Skyline Drive, he had breathtaking views of the Shenandoah Valley. Quite different from its 19th century origins, Skyland today offers guests 178 rooms ranging from rustic cabins to cozy suites and rooms with spectacular valley and mountain vistas.
The Pollock Dining Room features regional cuisine and free family-friendly entertainment is scheduled nightly in the Mountain Taproom.
Guided horseback rides depart daily from the Skyland stables and special events such as the bi-monthly Shenandoah Seasonings Culinary Dinners, July 25 Blackberry Delight Event, September 19 Apple Butter Celebration, weekly Virginia wine tastings and much more are held throughout the season.
Skyland is open March 26 through noon, Nov. 29, 2015. Skyland Resort is managed by Delaware North, an authorized concessioner of the National Park Service.
