Hotel of the week: Primland, Meadows of Dan, Va.
Primland is tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwestern Virginia.
Guests leave Primland feeling like tycoons, said John Bordsen in the Charlotte, N.C., Observer. Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwestern Virginia, the “rugged and ritzy,” 12,000-acre compound was originally built by a French-Swiss billionaire as a family retreat. Its attractions now include a luxury lodge, 18 cottages, an award-winning golf course, a 600-square-foot indoor pool, and an observatory disguised as a silo. A sense of exclusivity suffuses the place, and by stay’s end, you’ll feel like “lords of the manor.” Contact: Primland.com
