example, pays homage to the Vermont-born 21st U.S. president, while the School Room features a vintage slate chalkboard, globe and other schoolhouse antiques. Locally raised lamb
and quail, market-fresh produce and home-baked goods grace the seasonal dinner table, all
complemented by an award-winning wine list. A relaxing massage can easily be arranged.

Southern comfort comes with a shot of refinement at Primland. Here, it is all about the simple
pleasures: Spotting whitetail deer on a woodland trail, fishing for trout in a babbling brook,
riding horses through fields of wildflowers, climbing trees to get that much closer to nature. A
massive, eco-conscious resort in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Primland never forgets its connection to the land, nor its commitment to luxury with 51 rustically elegant suites,
cottages and storybook treehouses. There are an 18-hole golf course and an organic spa inspired by Native American rituals.

Make a declaration of indulgence at Keswick Hall, a historic 600-acre estate just minutes from
Thomas Jefferson's beloved Monticello. Here, at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, time
naturally slows down - despite the latest technology upgrades made during the 48-room
mansion's latest renovations. You'll be hard-pressed to leave this bucolic setting, home to
Pete Dye's Full Cry golf course, a top-ranked tennis center and an extensive, Audubon-approved trail system. Go fly-fishing, play croquet or try your hand at archery. The Southern-inspired fare at Fossett's is sure to please.
