The Tree House at Primland Resort

The Tree House at Primland, in Meadows of Dan, Virginia

Placing a chic resort in the middle of 12,000 acres of Blue Ridge wilderness is a bit like pairing a tulle ball gown with a leather jacket: When executed with skill, the contrast is drop-dead. Wedding weekends at Primland, a three-year-old sporting resort with top-of-the-world views, can involve ATV excursions, horseback rides, fly-fishing, and shooting clays. Or they can center around award-winning golf, massages, and chocolate tastings. One stunning spot for a small celebration: The deck at the Tree House, where guests can sip moonshine cocktails in twig rocking chairs as hawks soar in the valley below. Want something a little more trad? There’s a ballroom with hardwood floors and contemporary glass chandeliers. Add a collection of posh hillside homes for stashing friends and family, and good luck getting anyone off this mountain.
