Shenandoah National Park

Skyland ResortSkyland Resort

Skyland Resort was a small privately-owned community located in Page County, Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Skyland was built at what later became the highest point on the Skyline Drive with a sweeping view of the Shenandoah Valley at 3,680 feet.

The Skyland Resort, originally called Stony Man Camp, was built in 1895 by George Freeman Pollock, a young Washington, DC man whose father owned a great deal of the land surrounding the resort. Skyland was intended to be a place where the affluent people from major cities would come to relax and recreate. Early in its life, it was advertised as a dude ranch. When it opened, transportation was by horse or wagon. It competed with the nearby Panorama Resort, which opened in 1924.

Around 1931, it was taken over by the Shenandoah National Park, and the Skyline Drive was built past it.  Rather than destroying the improvements to restore the natural beauty as was the practice in most parts of the Park as it was established between 1924 and 1936, Skyland's accommodations were expanded, and are available to visitors today.
