Skyland, 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 newly renovated 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.
Skyland is a perfect venue for weddings, team building retreats, family reunions and other events. The historic Conference Building accommodates up to 100 people and our culinary team will create a memorable menu for your group. Call our group sales office at 866-383-2922 for information or to schedule a site visit.
Guided horseback rides depart daily from the Skyland stables and special events such as the Shenandoah Seasonings Culinary Dinners, July 23 Blackberry Delight Event, September 17 Apple Butter Celebration, Virginia wine tastings and much more are held throughout the season.
Skyland is open March 24 through noon, Dec. 3, 2016. Skyland is managed by Delaware North, an authorized concessioner of the National Park Service.
