Tucked away in the bucolic Blue Ridge Mountains, Skyline Lodge opened July 2021 following an extensive renovation of the beloved, historic 1930s-era property, which has been a staple in the area for over 80 years. The property evokes an immediate sense of place through its mid-century modern design and distinct architecture, which was originally conceptualized by architect Arthur J. Kelsey, a longtime student of Frank Lloyd Wright. Featuring clean lines, reclaimed wood interiors, and thoughtful details that pay homage to the surrounding nature, the lodge offers 39 guest rooms and one suite - all nestled along winding exterior corridors. Outside, the lodge boasts the area's most stunning panoramic views as well as easy access to a variety of hiking trails, waterfalls, shopping destinations, and additional opportunities to enjoy the nature and amenities both within and beyond the property. Skyline Lodge is home to Oak Steakhouse, a contemporary steakhouse featuring the finest cuts of Certified angus Beef and locally soured produce from area farms. The first and only steakhouse in Highlands, Oak partners with area purveyors and neighboring farms to bring the flavors of Appalachia right to the table.
