Skyland resort, formally known as Stony Man Camp, was founded in 1888 by George Freeman Pollock, Jr.. Pollock was a pioneer conservationist, who was later instrumental in establishing Shenandoah National Park. He called the resort Skyland because of its lofty location near the highest point on the Skyline Drive. At 3,680 feet, Skyland Resort is the highest point on Skyline Drive with breathtaking views of the Shenandoah Valley and cool mountain breezes. Skyland encompasses 36 acres in the Park with 28 buildings on 16 of those acres along the crests and wooded areas.

The least expensive accommodations are 25 relatively small rooms in the main lodge that was constructed in 1939. Most rooms at Big Meadows are in a series of six lodge buildings, two of which (Doubletop and Rapidian) were remodeled in 2007 with new furniture, air conditioning, and simulated wood floors. Rooms in these two buildings each have a private patio or balcony offering good valley views. Ten cabins are in five duplex buildings that sit in a grassy area near the main lodge.
