I am baffled by the reviews that are saying the rooms were nice and very clean. Is there a secret, pristine set of rooms somewhere? We stayed in the Blackfoot building for ~$180 a night for two double beds. Our room had what appeared to be *years* of worth of dust and cob webs, both on the inside and all...

Excellent mountain destination. Very cozy, rustic, and charming. The views are breathtaking. Waterfalls and vistas are all within hiking distance. It is a great place for kids and adults alike to reconnect with nature and detach themselves from all of the worldly things we have become dependent upon.

My family and I stayed for two nights and loved getting away from it all. We had neither TV nor internet, but somehow even my teenage daughters survived. We had a standard room since we travelled with our dog. The room was pretty rustic, but we were out most of the time. The water pressure is fairly low, so be...

We are national parks enthusiasts and our family of 8 stayed in units 50, 51 and 113 a couple nights ago. The lodge is in a very nice nature setting in the middle of the park, so exactly what we were looking for location and adventure; except our night turned into a nightmare with very little sleep chasing the mice...

Big Meadows is located along Skyline Drive in a beautiful wooded area. The lodge itself is historical and the staff was lovely. We enjoyed the restaurant and just walking the trails located nearby...be sure to take the 10 minute walk up to the overview, it was perhaps one of the nicest views of the whole trip. The issues? We stayed...

We stayed here for 2 days , enjoying the Shenandoah Park. The lodge is very simple, a bit old but clean and in a very strategic position. It offers good food for breakfast and dinner and also some activities. You can meet bears and deers during hiking and also in the lodge area. Relationship btw price and quality is good.

We return to Shenandoah to hike the trails frequently. Staying at Big Meadows was comfortable and convenient to the park trails. If you haven't been there recently - come check out the lodging renovations. Love what they've done with the place!

A nice get away from the hassles of everyday life. We were in a standard room which doesn't include TV or AC so to say the least it is not a luxury accommodation. It was rustic but the setting is beautiful and views can't be topped

“rooms in the lodge have best views, but the cabins are closer to the wildlife”

“Hawksbill is across the parking lot from lodge/restaurant. It's not a far walk but not easily accessible for those with mobility issues.”

“Topmost floor of the lodge looks the best. If you are "below," you will hear every footstep. Pick a terrace room with a view.”
