In an attempt to find a suitably convenient place to meet old friends for a couple of days, found Primland (Primland.com) and spent two very nice days there in early August, 2014. Very nice could have been fantastic except we couldn't plan for the rain that hit for both days we were there. Nonetheless, we will certainly consider returning as... More

Spent 4 nights at Primland as part of our honeymoon - 2 in the Cooper's hawk tree house and 2 in the sparrow east cottage as the tree house was not available for longer when we booked. Both were spectacular in different ways and we enjoyed the combination. Accommodation: 9/10. The tree house is one of those places that only... More

Primland is somewhat in the middle of nowhere but has most everything you need to relax for a while so no problem. We stayed in a fairway cottage. It was large, cozy and beautifully decorated. It came with a golf cart to get us back and forth to the Lodge. It had a microwave, refridgerator dishes, silverware glasses etc. My... More

The other reviews here pretty much say it all: this place is fantastic. Other guests were marveling at the fact that Primland seems to be relatively unknown despite its quality. It rained when my wife and I were there for a weekend so we didn't do many of the activities except to visit the observatory and hike a couple of... More

Despite the slightly odd name, Primland is a treat for the senses. 12,000 acres tucked away close to the Blue Ridge Parkway (the Appalachian Trail used to go through it,) the property is absolutely beautiful. There is plenty to do if you have a mind to, but simply sitting back and drinking in the scenery is also an option. The... More

We live in Virginia but had never heard of Primland until we happened to drive by one of its entrance signs on Route 58 while visiting nearby Fairy Stone State Park (wonderful). At the last minute we decided to try and see if they had any space this weekend. All they had left was the 7 bedroom house called "Patrim"... More

My family and I stayed at Primland Thursday-Sunday. We stayed in the Woodchuck which had amazing views! The boys played golf on Friday while the ladies went to the spa. My husband plays golf often and said the price wasn't worth it for the course but the views were nice. The spa was absolutely amazing! We did a half day... More

If you like wilderness and lodges (or cabins), this place is a great option for a long weekend. We stumbled upon Primland in search of a weekend away somewhere east with plenty of outdoor activities. We aren't really into camping so much, but have fallen in love with lodges. Lucky for us, at the last minute, we found one room... More

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
