Travelers' Choice
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.

How do you describe a place that changes your view on what a travel experience should be? Primland, with its beautiful 12,000 acres of land, has everything for people who enjoy the best of nature and hospitality. Our trip began with sporting clays and a 2-hour RTV tour of the property. Noel, our guide for both, was perfect. She helped my wife, who is new to guns, feel comfortable and had her consistently hitting targets by the end of the session. We then wound through RTV trails that were both scenic and fun to navigate. My wife (who deserves woman of the year) accompanied me on a round of golf. I’ve never played a course with such views. The layout compliments the terrain while adding challenge that is fair, but tough. Bent grass covers the course, which is unique for a southern track. We had lunch at the 19th Pub and dinner at Elements. Both were fantastic. I recommend the scallops. We lucked out that our appointment at the observatory that night coincided with perfectly clear skies. Rainey, the resident astronomer, taught us all about what we were able to see. Planets, stars, nebulae, and star clusters. This is an experience unique to Primland. Whomever thought to include the observatory on the lodge knew what they were doing. The following day, the wife and I enjoyed a morning at the spa. We had a soak in the jacuzzi before a couples massage. The staff was exceptional. My wife was gracious enough to allow for another round of golf. I was determined to tame the course, which didn’t happen on round 1. Having course knowledge made round 2 so much better. Our last full day was brought in with snow showers. We woke up with snowy mountain views from our well-appointed suite. The staff had already salted all the pathways and roadways, so we decided to walk from our Pinnacle Cottage to the lodge for breakfast. A beautiful walk, and another beautiful dining experience. Needless to say, we will be back. Our decision to spend our honeymoon here was a great one. And, selfishly, it means we will surely come back to celebrate where it all began. We are grateful to the staff for a beautiful experience.

Hotel's Favorite
We recently were fortunate to stay again at Primland. This was our 4th visit over the past five years. We always go in September which is our anniversary month. The spectacular location is a must for anyone who enjoys nature and needs to "get away from it all". If you are worried about WiFi service its' excellent and not an issue. The accommodations once again did not disappoint. Clean, comfortable and spot on. We have always rented a fairway cottage as they work best for us. The resort has done an excellent job with all of the COVID-19 safety measures so visitors will feel comfortable enjoying their stay. We ate at the restaurant Elements each and every morning (Five days) and it did not disappoint. What a treat. The pastries are to die for, and all of the breakfast fare was excellent. The blueberry pancakes super thick and delicious, and the home fries had just the right amount of seasoning! One of the many reasons we love to go back to Primland is because of the excellent staff they have working for them. We have an opportunity to see many of the same staff from year to year and we really enjoy conversing with them. We probably converse too much but my wife and I thoroughly enjoy meeting and speaking with folks. In this case it's a chance to reacquaint ourselves with members of the staff which we have grown fond of over the years. The staff that work the morning B'fest was superb. I would like to mention some here-Kudos to Cricket, Ashlee, Jesse, Samantha, Ms. Jennifer, and Ms. Debra. All of these folks make Primland what it is. Thank you to all for making us feel so welcome again. Most of this staff has worked at Primland for several years and it was so nice to see all of them again. We also ate at Elements for Dinner. We suggest you make reservations as due to COVID they can not accommodate as many as before COVID. While the menu is not extensive, the quality of the food, service and atmosphere is excellent. The Pub is also a nice place to enjoy dinner and it's less casual. You can eat inside or outside on the beautiful deck. The desserts are also not extensive but what is offered are very good. The chocolate dessert was particularly excellent! Kudos to Seth, Judy, Adam and Leigh (Hostess) who we had the pleasure of serving us during dinner in both locations. We had others but the names have escaped me. Kudos to Karl who brings it all together. If you like a particular type of wine on the menu he can ensure that you go home with several bottles. In the past he has gone out of the way to accommodate my wife's request to purchase several bottles to bring home. He is also pretty close to an expert when it comes to wine. Finally we went on our annual RTV ride which I would recommend. It is two full hours of driving through the mud, muck, and the woods of Primland. My wife and I switched off after an hour which is possible if you let the guide know before you start. We were lucky to have Noelle as our guide for the third straight year and she was awesome. She seems to find the most challenging out of the way trails on the property! Primland is also Dog friendly. Many of the cabins can accommodate dogs, and we went on some super long walks together. You will see plenty of deer, and wild turkeys while on the resort. If you get real lucky you might catch a glimpse of a black beer. We look forward to our visit again next fall.

I loved reading about your time with us at Primland - I will share this with the entire team - they will be thrilled that they once again made your visit with us a memorable one. I will definitely reach out to the ones you specifically mentioned. These "shout outs" mean so much to them. As you commented on - many of our team have been here for many years - some before there was even a Lodge! At Primland, you will find true southern hospitality - something that we all are very proud of. Our guests love coming here and seeing familiar faces! The activity you chose - RTV - is my favorite. You definitely get a true feeling of the vastness of the property, the history of the logging industry as you travel on the old logging trails and the views are breathtaking!!! Thank you for commenting on our COVID 19 protocols - we take the safety of our guests and employees seriously and want everyone to be safe but yet still be able to enjoy all that we have to offer. We know this creates some limitations such as dining space and menu options, but our guests have been very gracious with the procedures we have to follow during these times. As always, we look forward to your return - we will all be waiting to greet you. Please be safe, Julee

We have arrived to Primland to experience the wonder of this great resort. What a great decision we made for our honeymoon! In our week at the property, we have experienced a mountain home to a Pinnacle Cottage (we did both for two unique venues), and both are unmistakably amazing. From the staff, service, quality of food, recreation (RTV tour, shooting clay, golf, spa, stargazing, pool time, and hiking), fresh air, and simple magic of of the mountains, we are in our own personal heaven. Every detail has been discovered, no leaf unturned, all with quiet and remarkable hospitality. If you’re looking for a great getaway, I highly recommend. For me, I feel renewed and recharged. We are in love with this place and will return for years to come. Thank you, Primland!

Thank you for celebrating your marriage with us and sharing your experience! The Pinnacle Cottages are my favorite because of how close they are to everything and how remote they are at the same time. We are happy to hear that you both were able to experience the many exhilarating activities Primland has to offer while enjoying some relaxing moments at the Spa and Stargazing. Sometimes stepping away into the mountains is what the soul needs to feel renewed and recharged. We hope you will continue to celebrate this very special moment with us for years to come. Kind Regards, Alex Cochran

Staff did their best, not about them, but this place is going down hill, even considering the current COVID circumstances. WAY over-priced room. Dinner service poor. In-room service closed before advertised.

The Black Bear cottage feels like it was built in the early 70’s. It’s pathetic on so many levels. There’s nothing good I can say about it except that it has a pool table and a ping pong table, and it’s within walking distance of the Saloon.

We appreciate you spending time with us at Primland. The Black Bear is not for everyone, it is the type of home that works for some groups based on it’s size. It is one of our larger homes. The original homes are being renovated on a schedule - which unfortunately was delayed due to the COVID restrictions. Please make sure to check out some of the other types pf mountain homes or other accommodations on property - we do hope we get a chance to welcome you back. Happy New Year.
