Shenandoah National Park Lodging


Lodging in the Park

Lodging in the park is conveniently located along Skyline Drive beginning at mile 41.7 through 57.5.



Skyland (mile 41.7 and 42.5) was founded in 1888 by George Freeman Pollock Jr. Pollock chose the perfect spot for his summer retreat at 3,680 feet, with breathtaking views of the Shenandoah Valley and cool mountain breezes.

Give yourself a moment to take in the views from the highest point on Skyline Drive – from the comfort of your room.  Skyland offers a variety of accommodations ranging from newly renovated Premium rooms with AC, TV, wood plank laminate flooring, patios and balconies to suites, and cozy rustic cabins.

Bring your four-legged friend along because we love pets. 

Savor our dining room’s delectable regional fare along with sustainable menu selections. Unwind with a leisurely horseback ride from nearby stables. Or shop for one-of-a-kind specialty items and souvenirs in our gift shop.



Big Meadows Lodge (mile 51) is named for a large grassy meadow near the lodge where deer often graze. The main lodge was built with stones cut from the Massanutten Mountain in 1939 by the CCC and mountain laborers. The interior structure of the lodge, including the paneling, is made from native chestnut trees, which are now virtually extinct.  The main lodge has 29 cozy, little hotel rooms and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 28, 1997.

Sixty-three additional accommodations include cabins with fireplaces, traditional rooms sitting in a wooded area, and preferred rooms with AC, TV and patio or balcony.

Visit the Spottswood Dining Room, New Market Taproom and Craft Shop which are located in the main lodge building. The New Market Taproom offers a lighter fare menu plus free nightly family-friendly entertainment. The Spottswood Dining Room serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Enjoy dining with your four-legged friend on the lodge terrace.  We love pets!



Get in touch with nature in these historic, furnished cabins at Lewis Mountain (mile 57.5) — one of our most popular overnight destinations. Enjoy the fun of cabin rental with private bathrooms, heat, electric lights, towels, linens and an adjacent outdoor pit grill for cooking. The absence of in-room phones and internet access only adds to the total tranquility.

Slow down the pace as you cook out on your sheltered outdoor charcoal fire.  Dine on your own picnic table with songbirds providing dinner music.

Lewis Mountain is a pet friendly property.

There’s so much to see!

So,  what should I do first?

We know there is a lot to see and do in the Park.  So we decided to create a seasonal top 10 lists for those who have only limited time. We asked park rangers to give us their best recommendations. Learn more about what they suggested: the Top 10 Things to Do in Shenandoah National Park.
