Meadows of Dan, Virginia

To call Primland unique is an understatement. Its understated elegance blends seamlessly into the natural environment with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and stone fireplaces. There are also 26 guest rooms and suites in The Lodge, new four-bedroom Pinnacles cottages, Fairway cottages, mountain homes—and three treehouses! Dining ranges from casual to gourmet, with a focus on locally sourced ingredients. In addition, the Lodge offers a spa and fitness center, as well as a domed observatory where guests can see galaxies in deep space. Activities include shooting, hunting, fishing and off-road vehicle trails. And then there is the golf. Designed by Donald Steel, the top-ranked Highland Course is a stunning mountaintop masterpiece.
