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.

I have really mixed feelings about Primland so I will start with the good. We also didn't go to golf and don't golf so if that is why you are going I think it makes much more sense. We are more the Blackberry Mountain type crowd that likes to do activities etc. and went b/c Primland takes dogs. If you have stayed at the Omni in Asheville (the one with the giant fireplace) the property is in the same shape as that and in my opinion they are VERY similar, however the Omni I believe is much cheaper, but the food at Primland is better. Good: 1. The area is absolutely beautiful 2. The staff, for the most part, are very friendly and helpful. I get that it is COVID and things may be different than usual so I will chalk up any shortness or frustrations on their part to that. 3. Food. I really liked the food. No, it is not Blackberry Farms good but it is good, and the pub food is actually really good. Not sure what is going on with in-room dinning, I ordered a veggie burger 3 times and got it 3 different ways (and one time cold) but the two restaurants were good. 4. Hiking trails. There are only 4 but really really enjoyed them! Bad: 1. If this were a 4 star or 3.5 star hotel for ~$250 a night I wouldn't be writing this. I stayed in the fairway cottages which are $600+. When you pay that much you expect things to just work and be easy. (I also used AMEX points but putting that aside). It was almost as if the management or property manager had never stayed in the rooms: 1. Shower head was atrocious. My home shower head has more water pressure and doesn't spray sideways. Invest in a spa like shower experience, this is a cheap fix and would make for a MUCH better guest experience. 2. The floor was higher then the door swing radius in the bathroom so it got stuck halfway opened which became dangerous. You had to throw your weight in it to open all the way 3. Toilet paper holder squeaked LOUDLY at night. Again, not a huge deal, if you are staying at a Hampton inn, but not here. 4. Had to call maintenance to get the fireplace to work 5. Remote blinds came with three different remotes and no instructions. PRINT OFF HOW TO USE THEM OR PUT IT ON THE WALL. We spent 30 mins watching youtube videos at 10PM, before calling maintenance (we called maintenance a lot, again, not what you want to be doing on a holiday) 6. Heat stayed at 73 degrees all night (even after maintenance came) slept with heater full blast and all windows open. Not ideal. 7. Whole thing seemed dated, the wood panel under our fridge was broken, drywall around lights halfway patched up, even the chairs in the main dinning hall looked frayed. This isn't a dealbreaker but just not what you expect at a 5 star hotel. 8. Suggest grab and go or some sort of cafe thing to grab coffee or quick bites. This one may just be me as we didn't come to golf and we hiked and did other activities so we didn't want to deal with going to a restaurant for every meal. 9. Please please put trashcans near the areas where you allow dogs. We constantly carried bags of poop to the main lodge because there were no trashcans except for outside the entrance and didn't want to not clean up after our pets. 10. Pretty sure our axe throwing teacher was drunk/high. 1. He didn't have a mask (said he forgot which freaked me out) 2. Instead of helping us pick up the axes after each turn he sat in a chair and laughed at our throws, not professional at all. 11. No minibar. This really shocked us. Especially in the cottages which are a walk to the lodge. I assumed we would arrived to a fully stocked mini bar with beer, snacks etc. I know this is more good than bad but most are easy fixes. Also, I think a lot of these things you don't care about if you are coming to gold or with a family because the added value of the course/large grounds and activities takes away from the negative.

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.

Response from Julee Midden, Sales at Primland
Responded Oct 1, 2020
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

6 day Thanksgiving holiday stay. Entered into the North Gate, Temperatures were taken for covid precautions. Arriving at the lodge we were greeted by name and escorted to the reception. After a short tour, a brief wait until the room was ready, the fire and views were awe-inspiring. Wow. -The Lodge: beautifully decorated in rustic high end details. Two maintained fireplace fires and a fire pit just outside. Elements dining, 19th pub, golf shop, spa, fitness room, observatory, and pool are located here. A fun place to visit for exploration, beverages and to sit by the fire. -The Pinnacle Cottages: Our family chose the Dan River Suites, bottom floor. A spacious room with a gas fireplace flanked by two bedrooms opposite sides. One king with a large spacious bathroom and a double queen also with a spacious bathroom. The windows allow for an amazing view of the river valley. Three decks with seating. Two chairs and two couches, a TV, coffee table, dining table, sink, plenty of counter space and storage areas. Coffee Keurig, microwave, small refrigerator without a freezer, mugs, glasses and silverware. Tip: Stay on the top floor if there are any mobility problems given the bottom floors are only accessible by stairs or a small path so more up and down. Also you can hear the people above esp if small children running around on the hardwood floors. At least our above neighbors were quiet after nine. -Golf - beautiful, well maintained, views at every turn, lots of deer and wildlife. -Hunting - everything is detailed for you and well prepared. The pheasants were prepared in a cooler for our departure and well iced. The guides were helpful and enjoyed their jobs. -Spa - due to covid the use of the steam room and hot tub were not allowed. The massage was pleasant as always, relaxation rooms quiet and clean. - pool - required a reservation due to covid, but in the morning swimming was easy without others present. - 19th pub - tasty, quick, great beverages, nice staff. - Elements - extremely accommodating given that my mother in law was concerned with dining in the dining room with numerous people. They set us up in the great room by the fire and we were the only ones dining. They offered the same set up for Thanksgiving feast. Which the feast was quite the feast, very well prepared, more food than we could eat. they offered to go boxes for dessert. Food was served quickly. -in room dining - talk about fast service. Breakfast was great, lunch, dinner. -Stables Saloon - great change of dinning environment, served family style, music by Crooked Road. Nice country feel. -Buzzard Roost Trail - 2.5 mile trail, great exercise, well maintained and nicely strenuous. Highly recommend a Primland visit. Great family or couples get-away. We will return!

Great things were the room & the spa experience. Absolutely loved the spa! Was told to order room service instead of going to Elements. Correct! Worse Christmas meal ever @ $75! Dress code was not observed by most, service was poor, food was fair to below fair, dessert bar looked like packages opened from Food Lion. Very disappointing. Room service breakfast the next day was very good. One expects more when staying here, & we found the communication and execution of the staff to be frustrating & disappointing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. From the pleasant drive to the lodge, to the welcoming staff to the beautifully designed cottage. Our dogs had a wonderful and relaxing stay. There are beautiful vistas and trails just outside your door. We highly recommend Cardinal West with the lovely bathtub and fireplace.
