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...

Hello DuchessV1, Thank you for your review! We truly appreciate hearing about your recent stay with us at Big Meadows Lodge. I apologize for the mice in your room.

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

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