#1 of 2 in Meadows of Dan
Travelers' Choice
Primland Resort is a luxurious back-to-nature escape unfolding across the highlands of Virginia in all their smoke-hued grandeur, the Blue Ridge Mountains are a natural paradise of forest-cloaked peaks and sun-dappled valleys. At the heart of this pristine wilderness, Primland Resort awaits on its own 12,000-acre mountain estate. From the regal Lodge with its skirt of emerald fairways to its romantic log cabins and treehouses perched above the Dan River Gorge, winding trails lead to myriad fresh discoveries. Wander the banks of streams alive with trout and chance upon a deer, silhouetted in a backlit glade. Experience the rush of mountain biking balanced with the rejuvenation of the Auberge Spa. Gaze at primeval views and star-filled skies from an on-property observatory, basking in the serenity of nature. At Primland Resort every moment is one to savor.

Go! Just GO! If you love breathtaking views, quiet, peaceful hikes in the forest, friendly, engaging (but never intrusive) staff, golf, horseback, fly fishing, sporting clays, adventures on ATVs, fabulous spa experience - or just sitting on a covered porch and enjoying the massive views with a cup of coffee (or wine) - GO! My husband and i spent our 30th Anniversary and his 52nd birthday week at Primland - our first visit. We can not WAIT to go back. We stayed in a River of Dan King suite and loved the space to spread out - as well as the proximity to the lodge (while still maintaining privacy).

Mini family reunion with the Krol clan, Steve, Stanley and Theodore came along w/our banker friends from nearby Winston-Salem and of course we've been dealing with Patrick county for 6 plus years.. this is the top resort rated in the southeast United States well worth it with our French theme.. of course with our political affiliation we normally stay on Trump resort properties but I give this resort a big A+

Primland lives up to its reputation. The scenery is spectacular, the food is outstanding, and the facilities are top notch. Staff went out of their way to call my wife and me by name, which is a nice welcoming touch. While not cheap, the resort is worth the expense.

This is a superb property, nestled atop the Blue Ridge Mountains in western Virginia. The service deserves top marks, the staff is incredibly friendly and well informed, the food and wine is excellent, and the outdoor experiences available are truly remarkable. The rooms have beautiful views, where one takes a cottage or stays in the Lodge. Fine dining is readily to hand at Elements, and casual dining (fantastic burgers!) is available at the 19th Pub. I strongly recommend the RTV tour: it is spectacular.

We first experienced Primland July 2021 and had such a great experience that we returned for spring break in April 2022! We vacationed as an extended family (6 adults and two young kids) and stayed in one of the Mountain Homes while also heavily utilizing all the Primland property has to offer. The house was very well appointed and clean with a truly spectacular view. The property was also perfect for bringing our four legged companions. It was very convenient to the Lodge for the Spa, dining and activities such as the Observatory and hiking which we frequented on a daily basis. We enjoyed many of the outdoor activities (some are complimentary) - after having stayed twice favorites continue to be horseback riding, clay shooting, RTV tour and hiking. We also tried archery this time around and had a blast. There are plenty of activities for couples, adults and families with kids. We find Primland to be very kid/family friendly and our kids always say it's the "best vacation ever!". The activity staff is also wonderful. They are really accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable no matter what activity or tour you're on. They'll definitely go above and beyond to ensure you have a great time! It's not really an outdoor activity per say, but definitely go to the Observatory on a clear night! Amazing experience. The spa is lovely - highly recommend their massages and facials. Overall, it's a fabulous resort. Attentive and warm staff (they truly care and will go above and beyond to make your trip great), great mix of activities, beautiful Lodge and restaurants and mountain views that can't be beat! We also love the different accommodation options - Mountain Home or Lodge - because it allows us to spread out as a family and meet everyone's needs. Thanks so much to ALL at Primland for a memorable spring break. We hope to be back again soon!

This is an amazing property with an intimate feel. The size of the facility, number of staff, opportunities for activities was great. it is nice to be treated by name and made to feel special. This resort does it, and does it well. We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary there with a two night stay, and at every meal the wait staff congratulated us and provided something special. Will definitely look for a time to return. Highly recommend!

Just back from three nights here with my husband and another couple. We originally booked this for the summer (Dan River King) and had to reschedule due to a family emergency. Since we had originally booked the room the hotel began partnering with Auberge and rates skyrocketed (our summer room rate went up 1000 a night when we tried to book it for the end of March!). So we decided to just book a mountain king in the lodge instead. Imagine our amazed faces when the hotel for some reason decided to upgrade us when we checked in and we were put into their largest suite - the Celestial Suite which is two floors of the silo. Sincerely the nicest hotel room I have ever stayed in and I am so grateful for whatever reason we were chosen to stay there! The hotel is absolutely beautiful and even at the end of March in what is probably one of the least picturesque times of the year, the property was stunning. We had an action packed few days including ATV rides (thank you Zach for a great time), hiking, massages, observatory tour (marred only by a very large group that didn't seem to care their were other guests in attendance) and clay shooting (Noel was amazing at teaching our beginner group). I got my hair blown out after our massages and we also found time to take a dip in the beautiful pool and hot tub. We even rented out the hotel theater to watch the Final Four Games on our own. All in all it was just an amazing trip with one real downfall - the food. You are captive in this resort and the food was a B at best and the menu so limited. Our first day we ate lunch at the pub and went back for dinner where we were surprised to see the exact same menu from lunch,. The menu was heavy on meat (and bacon everywhere) and although there were 2-3 salads after 4 days there we just were SO tired of the exact same salads. We did have one dinner at elements which had some fish meals although we all thought they were just okay (our husbands were also annoyed as the website says jackets required so they wore them but very few people adhered to it - if it isn't required, please remove it from the website). In four days at the hotel, only one pasta dish was offered one night and it was in a mushroom cream sauce. If this hotel is going to target more than the hunting crew, the menu needs to change daily, there need to be many more healthy options without bacon on everything. I will say the breakfast menu had a nice amount of variety so that you could eat there several days and not get bored. There also isn't enough dining spaces as our second day there was a very long wait for lunch as only the pub was serving lunch. A few other things to consider: -review the itinerary with guests when they arrive and let them know important details around bringing a coat to the observatory show or that the activities center is a 20 minute drive away -both my room and my friend's room were very dark and we couldn't see to put any makeup on or contacts. Lights should be added at least in the bathrooms -the theater is a great addition but it should have a refrigerator for drinks, a phone to call for food and we kept getting conflicting information on whether or not we could have food delivered or not. -I am really surprised there is no outdoor pool. While the doors on the indoor pool open, for such a large resort they should put one in. To reiterate, we had an amazing amazing time and the resort is stunning and the people lovely. At these prices, the competition is now places like Blackberry Mountain and Triple Creek Ranch (which we have stayed at both) and I think the property can get there but they need to solve the food issue first.

Found this resort through a Travel and Leisure list of resorts for star gazing. Sounded like a perfect getaway for a anniversary celebration. This resort did not disappoint! In addition to the observatory tour, we enjoyed star gazing from the fire lit patio. We also hiked and enjoyed an activity at the outdoor center.

First time visit, my husband and I drove 6 hours from Baltimore, MD to celebrate a special birthday. Warning: we lost cell-service last half hour and got lost (no GPS; frustrating) When we finally arrived at the main lodge, the young man who greeted us was underwhelming to say the least. It was dark and we were staying in a Fairway Cottage which required a drive to get to. Instead of the valet saying "I will jump in one of the (several) shuttle vehicles; please follow me to your cottage",. . . he pointed to faint lights in the distance and said "Your cottage is over there! See those lights??" So. . . we got back into our car, exhausted, and after a couple of wrong turns, finally found the Woodpecker West cottage. Wehad to fiddle with the key to open the door, carry our luggage inside, and orient ourselves to everything inside the cottage. Not fun. We changed clothes and drove back to the lodge for dinner at the 19th Pub which was lovely; great waitress, bartender, food. The next day brought torrential rain and fog, so we decided to stay put, relax and enjoy the amazing cottage. There were a few minor problems which were resolved by several staff and the general manager, Thomas. I must say that Thomas was without a doubt the most professional, kind, and responsive staff member at Primland. He made sure all the issues with the cottage were addressed, and that we were ultimately happy. We dined at Elements that night, and were very pleased with the food and our waiter, John. The weather the next day was beautiful. My husband visited the shooting center for clay shooting. I enjoyed walking the property, the spa and the gym. Together we hiked the Pinnacle trail which had a gorgeous overlook. We ate at Elements again that night, and very much enjoyed ourselves. The last day, again beautiful weather, a long walk for me and more shooting for my husband. Check-out was a bit complicated due to room rate confusion, but nothing significant. All in all, if you can afford the prices (our cottage was over $1000.00 per night, but the regular rooms in the lodge are much less, I imagine), and are not expecting a 5-star resort, the Primland is a beautiful get-away in southern VA. All staff members were great except the first young man, who seemed to be, shall I say, "unmotivated"? He needs to appreciate that first impressions mean a lot; he definately needs a bit of training, We will not be returning only due to the distance from our home. Nemacolin, a similar mountain resort in Pennsylvainia is just as nice, and much closer.

Fabulous time in a serene and beautiful location in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. The views were incredible and awe-inspiring. Loved the trail ride, outdoor activities and amenities. Left rested and refreshed and would love to return and repeat the experience in the future.
