Moved here from Big Meadows to complete our stay. In preferred lodging, had very comfortable bed, TV, and A/C, and a nice, quiet view. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Just cross the border, the price deserves the relaxing atmosphere. Mountains, valleys, falls and a fantastic panoramic view ofthe Southeast and Northwest, with houndreds of miles till the horizon. We enjoyed so much the road trip, and also every trail we visited in the park.

We went to the Blackberry Festival at Skyland which was very nice. The people running it were hospitable, helpful and looked like they were having a good time as well. The BlackBerry Ice cream was to die for.
