          Great cabin with a reasonable bathroom, helpful and friendly staff, good food - especially the "gourmet burger" at the Skyland Taproom. Of course, the park is gorgeous in the fall. Easy hiking on the Appalachian trail.

          I just read a recently posted review stating that the restaurant at Big Meadows is not open because of some repairs going on. Is that true? I'll be there for Memorial weekend and I was counting on the restaurant onsite (which, is btw, delicious) for my meals. Can anybody clarify this?

          Are the photos of the traditional rooms at Big Meadows (that I've seen on the reservation site for goshenandoah) representative of the actual rooms? Seems hard to gauge based on the reviews if the photos are true or not. The rooms actually look pretty nice. Just wondering if that's a bait & switch because some of the reviews are sorta scary. Not expecting anything luxurious but I do expect clean and reasonably well maintained.

          Are there good hikes from and back to the Lodge? We are doing a 4 day hike on the App Trail, but will stay at the lodge for two nights with the hope of doing a local hike on that extra day. Maybe around 7-10 miles with good views. Thanks!
