Primland | Meadows of Dan, Virginia
Conservationists can rest easy in the
Cooper's Hawk Tree House, one of three
lofted lodgings at the eco-conscious Primland resort. Built around a tangle of oldgrowth branches, the cedarwood cabin
soars 1,300 feet above the Dan River, offering bird's-eye views of the Kibler Valley.
Despite its opulent interiors fitted with
Frette linens and Bulgari bath products,
attention gives way to the 564-square-foot
deck, where guests can dine alfresco. The
51-room LEED-certified resort goes to
great lengths to honor and protect the environment: Elements restaurant features
local, sustainable ingredients; rooftops
at the lodge are made from recycled
tires; and biofilters are in place to help
protect the native trout population. Even
the Donald Steel-designed golf course
collects rain runoff for irrigation and
is Audubon certified. Personal health
is easily heeded here, too, with hiking,
biking, and horseback rides along trails
snaking through the 12,000 acres of private land. Test your outdoor acumen with
some geocaching or creatively alleviate
stress with fly-fishing, sport shooting, or
even tomahawk throwing. Doubles from
$430; Virtuoso travelers receive a custom
welcome amenity and a $100 resort credit.
Tree-house stays from $830; Cooper's
Hawk from $960.
