It is a lovely place, and we had a very nice room. However, some of the staff is quite inexperienced; the 'star gazing' option was amateurish; and the signature restaurant 'Elements' was good but not great. I think there are better options, as long as golf is not the primary purpose of your visit.

This was our 4th trip and its better than most Four Seasons……almost like an Aman-Four Seasons with a southern flair. The quality of food and service has constantly improved and the tranquil atmosphere (realize, its 15 minutes to the lodge FROM the gates) atop the mountain makes the views special. Spa treatments are always unique and realizing here and the... More

Primland Resort exceeded our expectations. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate. We stayed at the Bell house. The views are unsurpassed. You can see expansive views 100 miles away in total privacy. The house was spacious and well appointed. We mostly ate in, and the kitchen is well supplied. We ate at the Woodlands Grill prior to...

Our trip to Primland this time was just for one night but whether you spend one night or a week it is a fantastic resort. We ate at Elements on Saturday night and the food and service were excellent Our stay this time was in a lodge room [tree house and suite in prior visits] and it certainly met our... More

My fourth visit to Primland. It is no longer one of the best kept secrets around as each visit more and more people seem to know about it and property has been slightly more crowded. However it still has a very "small" feel to it with fantastic accommodations, staff and service. Great golf course. A bit hard to get to... More

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

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
