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, overlooking the Dan River and valley from 3,000 feet.

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.

We waited to go, as it is somewhat pricy (worth every cent) and we had a 30th wedding anniversary coming up. There was a Star Master weekend with SETI's Seth Shostak which drew us in as well. So, we started in the Tree House. WOW! We were there 2 nights and only left for an hour to hike the adjacent trail. We had one dinner and two breakfasts brought in to enjoy on the deck and no trip to an outside restaurant could have provided better. Watched the sun set and rise. Watched the birds ride the updrafts from the valley. The room was also great. Tub for 2 had a big window and great view of the Tree and valley. After two days here, we moved into the Lodge and were not disappointed at leaving the Tree House. The Mountain room (#25) had a great northern view, comfy bed, big shower and tub. We enjoyed the two nights with the Star Master crew even with one night of clouds. Dr Shostak was energetic, witty and smart. The dinners before were delicious and the company fun. The 'Smores in the firepit at the end of the night were great too. Lastly, highly recommend tree climbing with Bob Wray. Felt safe. He was patient and skillful. Mountain biking was worthwhile. Some gravelled path and dirt path. The Signature Spa treatment with Brenda was top notch. The valet/reception/food service staff were perfect (Trea, Marcus, Eli, Hannah, Sarah, Jamie come to mind. Sorry, I forgot others likely). Cannot wait to return!
