COVID-19 Updates

We are committed to maintaining an environment that helps keep our guests safe.

At Delaware North at Shenandoah National Park, we are focused on creating an experience that delights every guest. The health and safety of our employees and guests is always our highest priority.

Our comprehensive Rest Assured™ program has introduced new health and safety standards aimed at helping to keep guests and employees safe while slowing the spread of COVID-19. It includes bolstered hygiene protocols to meet or exceed best-practice guidelines of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

After careful consideration with State and County health officials, we had temporarily closed our lodging, retail and food services and reservation office. But now we are excited to be reopening.

Please reference the important information below for our guests:

  • Masks or other face coverings are required to be worn inside all indoor and public spaces at Skyland and Big Meadows Lodge. This applies to both guests and employees.
    • In line with US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance, this is a safety precaution that is part of our Rest Assured™ program. Our comprehensive health and safety standards work to help keep guests and employees safe while slowing the spread of COVID-19.
    • Thank you for your understanding and for playing a key role in protecting you and your family and friends, and each of our associates.
  • Guests will not be permitted to enter if they are sick or if they have come into contact with someone who is sick during the last 14 days.
