Big Meadows Lodge

Is located at mile 51.2 on Skyline Drive, is named for a large grassy meadow near the lodge where deer often graze. The main lodge was built with stones cut from the Massanutten Mountain in 1939 by the CCC and mountain laborers.

The interior structure of the lodge, including the paneling, is made from native chestnut trees, which are now virtually extinct. The absence of in-room phones and WIFI enhances the historical quietness of the surroundings.
