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!!
- 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
