Skyline Lakes is a 490-acre subdivision on the west face of the Blue Ridge Mountains, about 15 miles south of the town of Luray, Virginia. Nestled in a hollow formed by four intersecting ridges at an altitude range of 2240 to 2960 feet above sea level, the privately owned development is nearly surrounded by Shenandoah National Park. The mean annual rainfall is 52 inches; mean annual snowfall is 36 inches; and the temperature ranges from -17 degrees to 94 degrees.
It lies just a few miles from Big Meadows campground and lodge, and attractions such as Blackrock lookout, Lewis Falls, Skyline Drive and the Appalachian Trail are all within a short hike. The South Fork of the Shenandoah River is 15 minutes away, and resorts on Massanutten Mountain and Bryce Mountain are each under an hour’s drive away.
Skyline Lakes was subdivided and platted 40 years ago–in 1969.The development has 11 miles of unpaved roads, a one-acre pond (Lake Meadows), and views of the Blue Ridge, Massanutten and Appalachian Mountains. Trails lead into the park to the waterfalls on Naked Creek.
