    SKYLAND LODGE CRAFT SHOP, SHENANDOAH NP

    This relatively small gift shop is located at Skyland Lodge that is at the highest point on Skyline Drive (elevation 3680 ft, 1122 m). It's open from 8 am until 9 pm (!) and offers different items, including various gifts and souvenirs like ceramics, paintings as well as jars with some local food (jam, honey).

    I found the location and architecture of wooden-stone building of the lodge more interesting than items sold in the shop. The building is listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places.

    What to buy: I didn't buy anything and didn't like most of the stuff offered in the shop. Although I paid attention to little jars with local jam and honey.

    What to pay: Despite very touristy location prices in this gift shop were mostly reasonable.

    Vistors shop at Big Meadows wayside: Big Meadows- One stop shop

    Big Meadows wayside

    If you are in need of any camping supplies, you can purchase them at the Big Meadows wayside. There is no store like this located at Skyland resort.

    There is a little gift shop right next to the small diner where we ate.

    You can also fill up at the little gas kiosk.

    What to buy: We bought SNP two plastic drinking glasses, postcards, wine and beer. They also have cutesy tourist stuff to purchase.

    I would recommend to purchase the following guide books from the Byrd Visitor Center:
    1) Hikes to Waterfalls
    2) Short Hikes

    Each guidebook is $2.00 (great resource!)

    What to pay: The prices were a little higher but that is to be expected.

    Gift shop/ Java City kiosk: Skyland Resort- Dining Hall

    Skyland Resort - Dining hall

    This gift shop has more craft type stuff than Big Meadows wayside. It is not as comprehensive with the variety of goods it offers. We bought a SNP marbled coffee mug and red SNP baseball hat.

    Right as you walk in there is Java City kiosk in front of the Dining Hall eating area and Taproom.

    What to buy: Java City kiosk had possibly the best scones I ever had!
    The scone was soft with rasperry drizzled on top and white chocolate chunks in the middle. Dave had a pecan bar which we enjoyed as well.

    What to pay: The prices are about average.
