COVID-19 Cancellation Policy Adjustment

In light of recent events, Skyland, Big Meadows Lodge and Lewis Mountains Cabins is making a change to the way existing reservations have traditionally been handled. Reservations arriving prior to May 31, 2020 may be changed or cancelled at no charge up to 24 hours prior to arrival. If you do cancel your current plans, we hope that you’ll consider joining us at a more convenient date this year.
