As the concrete jungle and long work weeks tire city dwellers, the search for rest and recovery becomes paramount. Thankfully, Primland, a resort unlike any other, offers a beautiful antithesis to the hustle and bustle of city life.
Primland, which resides on over 12,000 acres of land in the colorful and sprawling Blue Ridge Mountains, located in Meadows of Dan, Virginia, is a place of physical and mental retreat. Here, resort-goers can escape the rest of the world by vacationing in a place surrounded only by nature. The Lodge at Primland offers 26 guest rooms and suites, all with rolling views of the mountainous landscape. If guests wish to have an even more remote experience, Primland additionally offers cottages, full-sized homes, suites reminiscent of chalets, and tree houses. Especially exciting for guests seeking a luxurious and home-style experience are the two story Pinnacle Cottages recently debuted.
No matter which style of lodging guests choose, the amenities abound. The Primland campus includes a beautiful full-sized golf course designed by Donald Steel to challenge even the most experienced golfers. For those who especially love the great outdoors, Primland offers a variety of hunting, fishing, and shooting activities, as well as kayaking, nature walks, swimming, tree climbing, and various other exploring adventures. For an indoor counterpart to these activities, the resort also boasts a state-of-the-art spa, as well as a plethora of wellness and fitness activities. Perhaps the most beloved activity of resort guests happens when night falls, as the altitude and clarity of the sky position Primland as the perfect stargazing destination. The resort celebrates its unparalleled views of stars, planets, and other celestial bodies, and features its own Observatory Dome for guests to study the night sky.
What Primland really wants its guests to take away from the experience is a harmony with nature. Appreciating and protecting the natural world is Primland’s mission, and this commitment is more than apparent. Didier Primat, the resort’s founder, planned and created the site in an eco-conscious manner, which makes Primland’s status as a renowned LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) registered property no surprise.
Primland provides an experience that revitalizes and renews its guests through a re-connection with nature. The peace and stillness that surround this luxurious destination, along with its unique accommodations and mission, are sure to provide a serene yet adventurous getaway.
