Andi’s Pick: Primland

Primland: Meadows of Dan, Virginia

First Impression

I foolishly thought that I knew about all of the must-visit hotels around the world, especially if they are located within the United States.  Imagine my surprise when I discovered that Primland — one of the ultimate retreats for world-class golf, refined dining, spa services, and outdoor activities — existed only a two-hour drive away from me.  This hidden gem is not just a hotel, it is a destination, and it should be put on every traveler’s Bucket List.  My husband I were in awe as we drove up the mountain and arrived at this spectacular property.


Primland is a 12,000 acre resort surrounded by the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains in the quaint Virginian city of Meadows of Dan.  The owners are fiercely protective of the land and have been environmentally respectful since they purchased it in 1977.  Because they are committed to sustainability and are a LEED registered property, the surrounding flora and fauna are abundantly thriving.

The Room

Every single detail is thought about and considered at Primland, and nowhere is that more clear than in their rooms, as everything is placed with a purpose.  The lighting, the art, the flowers, and the music combined with the luxuriousness of 400-thread count Frette bedding makes for a space so welcoming and beautiful it is almost impossible to leave.  Our two-room suite was decorated in a Native American style that is both sophisticated and unique.

The Bathroom

The bathroom was designed in a conscientious and thoughtful manner as well.  The mixture of stone, marble, and wood is perfectly sumptuous.  Guests can chose between the shower and/or bath when it comes to their bathing needs.  L’Occitane products simply add to the already incredible experience!

The Extras

The spacious suites in Primland offer the utmost in relaxation.  Settle in slowly and smile as a mountain breeze shadows your every move whispering sweetly in your ear.  For visitors, a stay at this property allows one to enjoy a vacation that captures Virginia’s magnificence.  Make sure you save enough time, so that you can brew a cup of Keurig coffee and enjoy it on the charming patio that comes with a glorious view of the golf course.

Why It Is Andi’s Pick

Because Primland is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, guests are presented with an intriguing juxtaposition of tradition, luxury, and adventure.  You can choose to dine at one of the restaurants, hike the trails, swim, golf, visit the spa, hunt, race ATVs, skeet shoot, horseback ride, or stargaze in the Observatory Dome.  Wow.

    Primland looks like a lovely retreat and it’s not too far from where I am in Maryland. I’m saving this post for a future visit. I’ve never been to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    So happy to see you back in my inbox, darling. I love the Blue Ride Mountains and even though I’m a water girl (Greek, you see,) I am slowly appreciating hills. It’s no coincidence this comment comes to you from Bogotá. Thinking of you and the fam, hoping you are relaxing, and picturing you somewhere lovely with your dear ones!

      Awww you’re just too sweet, I adore you!!! I’m a water girl too, but over the last couple of years the mountains have creeped their way into my heart. Have the best time in Colombia — I am SO jealous! Besos!

    It’s such beautiful and luxury resort. I was looking to spend sometime there but when I google map it it’s too far to drive down from NYC to Primland. We then picked the Kingsmill resort at Virgina for july 4th weekend. It was a group of 8 friends so maybe next time when I a romantic getaway me and my husband can take a plane and go check this place out. It really look so pretty.

    Oh, so so pretty! That kitchen area looks amazing and THAT BATH! It looks like a place you’d stay for the weekend just to do nothing except unwind. Love it!

      Yes, I agree! I wish we could have stayed there for more days, so that we could just do nothing for a couple of days and then partake in all of their activities for next couple of days. Sadly, we had no do nothing time! Guess, that just means we have to go back? 🙂
