Primland
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Meadows of Dan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Primland is one incredible piece (12,000 acres) of mountain property, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway by the Meadows of Dan/Stuart, Va. It was developed to accommodate a lodge, golf course by world reknown course architect, Donald Steel, trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, ATVs...and sporting clays. The Lodge has a movie theater, Pilsner Pub, library, invisible gutter pool, ballroom, golf shop, a Celestro telescope and 26 stylish luxurious suites. It is situated on a six mile stretch of the Dan River for those who enjoy fishing. That said...we went to dine. My #1Chef is a foodie and the sweetbreads did not disappoint. Read ritzytopaz and GoMauka's account on TA and you will get the idea..in fact all the reviews express our impressions. The earlier negative ones..not so much..it must have been a bad day for the staff if it is negative..We found nothing but the best in all categories. When you drive up..wonder where all the cars are? In a garage under the the hotel in the mountain!! Enjoy this luxury!!

Room Tip: We were staying in the area w/friends and did not experience the rooms, spa or golf course. We had h...

This was a last minute trip for the family. Only one hour from our home. First, we were told that no one stayed in our cabin the previous night so we could come and check in as early as we wanted? Security was great! Staff was great! Amenities were great! Food options were great! Wine cellar was amazing! Lots of activities... I recommend the 4 wheeling!

As I said in a previous review... Homestead in Hot Springs staff take a lesson on customer service from this place!

This was our second trip and we found it as good as we thought the first time and continue to wonder why not a Forbes 5 Star and AAA 5 Diamond. It's in those categories. Really.

We would put it along with Inn at Little Washington and Jefferson Hotel as the best in Virginia.

The architecture/design/decor is modern and Zen-like and is very much like Amangani in Wyoming or Falling Rock in Pennsylvania, but the privacy of its 33 rooms/cabins/treehouse on 12,000 acres is unique....takes at least 15 minutes to get to Lodge from South Gate (the short route from the South). The service is always friendly, and mostly efficient, and the food is gourmet. Bedding is luxe and the views are expansive. Spa and golf are among best anywhere. It is upper tariff but it is good value among the top class of US resorts.

We have recommended to over a dozen friends within the last year and all have been appreciative. We will continue to do so.

Room Tip: Try the romantic tree house if available.......top of mountain and secluded from rest of Lodge, over...

We visited Primland earlier this month. We were with a group of 16 on a golf weekend. My husband and I stayed in Cardinal East cabin on the 18th fairway. The accommodations were fabulous. We had a nicely furnished suite that was luxurious yet very comfortable. The sitting area had a spectacular view of the mountain scenery, and the stone fireplace was a nice treat even in August. The bathroom was spacious, clean and nicely appointed. Our cabin came with a golf cart so that we could travel back and forth between to the Lodge. We also shared a putting green with the two other houses in our area. Two in our group stayed in Cardinal West which was an adjoining cabin and suitable for entertaining a larger group. The remaining 10 in our group rented one of the mountain homes. It was an interesting house. From the exterior, it was pedestrian. The first floor of the interior felt like a mountain log home. The deck was enormous and could hold about 50 people easily. The view was absolutely breathtaking. On the lower level there were four modern bedrooms that were designed to take advantage of the scenic view...amazing!

We had meals in the 19th hole restaurant, the beautiful veranda of the lodge, the main dining room and the stable restaurant. I loved the menus (modern, southern fare) and always was satisfied with my meal. The cheesy stone grits were a treat for breakfast! For our Saturday night dinner, the lodge was busy with a special event so the resort offered to deliver our meal to our cabin. It was nice to have a relaxing meal in a ultra quiet setting.

As mentioned, we were there for a golf excursion. The course is challenging and unforgiving but worth every moment you spend on it. I'm not sure I saw any other golfers in the 72 holes that we played. It was like having our own private golf resort. Truly a memorable experience. I wish we had spent another day to take in some of the other offerings of the resort like sporting clays and the spa.

Primland is truly a gem in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. If you're looking for a special getaway, this is the place!

Primland Resort is on 12,000 acres with gorgeous mountain scenery. We stayed in the Lodge; The room was large, and modern, almost a suite, with feather beds and comfortable mountain view sitting area. Cabin renters have golf carts to navigate the grounds. The Elements restaurant served excellent food; 19th Green was good but not quite as consistent. Service throughout the hotel was friendly and efficient. The spa was relaxing, but probably has a small staff, since I couldn't get a second appointment; book ahead. There are plenty of outdoor activities; since I am older and not terribly athletic, I only hiked, though we also took a scenic drive and visited Stuart VA. Keep in mind that Primland is not very close to anywhere else; the distance from the front gate to the Lodge alone is 6 miles. Primland is a "keeper" on our list of NC-VA mountain resorts.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the front entrance--somewhat better views.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Escape There are many people at Primland with an abiding respect for the land, who know the sounds and smells of the forest so intimately, they will open your eyes to the simple pleasure of a mountain getaway at this refined East Coast vacation resort. They will show you the subtleties of nature and reacquaint you with the restorative powers of silence. Your server will remember just how you take your drink, your children's names and that you like a freshly baked cookie after lunch. You will sense the love your wilderness guide has for the mountain and all its creatures, and the depth of his expertise. You will always find a kind word, authentic humor and an open heart. It was the vision of Primland's founder, Didier Primat, to create a place of immense beauty that offers his guests a return to simple human pleasures in an environment of refined authenticity and sensuality. He developed Primland in an eco-conscious and thoughtful manner, as the ultimate retreat for world-class golf, refined dining and outdoor activities. Our love of the land is expressed in our extensive efforts to minimize our impact on nature, the freshness of our food, the many organic, sustainable ingredients we source locally or grow in our organic garden and the care with which we look after our guests. Didier Primat instilled his passion for Primland in every member of his family and staff , and they carry forward his legacy with soul, with heart and with a commitment to genuine hospitality. Art is an important part of the Primland experience. We consider hospitality to be an art that involves sharing emotion and pleasure through attention to even the most subtle detail. We also feel that surrounding you with inspired pieces of art enhances your experience. Throughout The Lodge, you will find hand-selected works by American artists as well as authentic and rare Aboriginal paintings from the most remote Australian territories. ... more   less
