Set on 12,000 gorgeous acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Primland was created as a place to open the heart to the wonders of nature. To that end, it's surrounded by miles of hiking and biking trails, and affords beautiful views at every turn. The interior is no slouch, either, which is why the property has been named one of the top 100 resorts in the world and was featured on Condé Nast Traveler's Gold List.
Tee off at the challenging Highland Course, rated one of America’s 10 best new courses by Travel and Leisure Golf in 2007.
Unwind at The Spa, which offers a tranquil pool and wellness packages designed to melt away stress.
Locally sourced dining: Elements, the upscale dining room, offers menu choices such as glazed farm duck breast and Harker's Island oysters; raise a glass in the welcoming pub and saloon built on top of the property's old stables.
Elegant rooms and suites feature Frette linens and spacious bathrooms, as well as views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the surrounding grounds.
Numerous onsite activities include hiking, biking, fly fishing, and stargazing from the resort's private Observatory Dome.
Meadows of Dan, VA: Quaint Small Town Along the Blue Ridge Parkway
Meadows of Dan is a tiny, unincorporated community located along the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway in the southwestern part of Virginia. The area's motto is "a simpler place in time" and it certainly lives up to that. Country shops selling jams and handicrafts can be found near lovely old houses and several restaurants. Nearby attractions include the Mabry Mill, a circa-1903 corn and flour mill that provides a charming—and highly photogenic—glimpse of rural Virginia life. Another popular stop is Fairy Stone State Park, a woodland area littered with unique crystalized rocks known as fairy stones. The park also has hiking trails and a 168-acre lake where you can go kayaking.
