We spent 5-nights at ‘Skylands’ at the start of this month. It was wonderful & memorable. Definitely recommend it.

When I was looking through the reviews I saw a lot of conflicting reports about Wi-Fi & TV availability. So, let me please give you the definitive update.

Skyland has Wi-Fi. It is very slow (like 45kbps) BUT it is stable & reliable. Yes, you get more bandwidth the less folks using it. So, bandwidth is better late at night as folks go to bed. That is where the stability & reliability kicks in. Though it is slow, it is not erratic & as such does NOT kick you out. Why am I stressing this. It means that photo backup to the cloud happened.

That was my biggest concern. Having my photos from my Google Pixel 4 backed up to Google Photo. Though I was taking 200 pictures a day the Wi-Fi was adequate enough to back 90% to Google Photos during the night as I slept. I activated data when I wanted to access a Website. Cell reception isn’t great, so there wasn’t much bandwidth with data either.

Wi-Fi is better around the office & dining room area. But, there is plenty of space to hang out. So, that wasn’t a problem.

We (of course (SMILE)) opted for a SUPERIOR room in the main building — attached to the office. See above pictures. All those rooms had TV. When I heard that Wi-Fi was poor I wanted TV given that I am a news junkie. These rooms were good. Quiet enough & a rather nice view overlooking Luray — in the valley below. The cabins are more rustic. IF, I am lucky enough to go back again I might give one of the cabins a spin NOW that I know where most of them are. SMILE. Yes, I did a lot of walking & exploring.

Hope this helps. GREAT PLACE. We were lucky. Memorable.
