While not a classic 'ranch', Primland Resort, by Auberge Resorts, embraces nature and offers their guests a fantastic immersion into the incredible Virginia wilderness, with equestrian opportunities for all.
A private estate that defines the ultimate Blue Ridge Mountains Experience: Primland Resort is a luxurious back-to-nature escape.
Unfolding across the highlands of Virginia in all their smoke-hued grandeur, the Blue Ridge Mountains are a natural paradise of forest-cloaked peaks and sun-dappled valleys.
At the heart of this pristine wilderness, Primland Resort awaits, located on its own 12,000-acre mountain estate.
From the regal Lodge with its skirt of emerald fairways, to its romantic log cabins and treehouses perched above the Dan River Gorge, winding trails lead to myriad fresh discoveries.
