    Primland
    Meadows of Dan, VA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 847 reviewsTripAdvisor (847)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Primland is set on 12,000 acres amid the Blue Ridge Mountains in southern Virginia, about 69 miles south of Roanoke. Accommodations here are spread across several buildings, and guests have the choice of staying in rooms, suites, cottages or houses. Lodging options are uniquely decorated and feature varying floor plans, but all include beds with Frette linens, luxury toiletries, coffee makers and wet bars. Plus, staying here grants you access to The Lodge's plethora of amenities, including the private movie theater, the observatory dome, a book and DVD library and a business center. Guests looking to unwind can head to the spa or pool, or work off stress at the fitness center. Meanwhile, more active types will appreciate the variety of outdoor pursuits at the property, which range from mountain biking and hiking to tennis and horseback riding – all of which the hotel's staff can help coordinate. It's the wealth of activities and the hotel's serene location that continue to earn it two thumbs up from previous visitors. Additionally, recent guests said the tasty food and drinks made it unnecessary to even leave the premises.

    The Jefferson Hotel
    Richmond, VA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1485 reviewsTripAdvisor (1485)
    Free WiFi

    First accepting guests in 1895, The Jefferson Hotel is an award winner several times over: Travel experts find what real-life travelers uphold, which is that The Jefferson Hotel's design, furnishings and staff exude Southern charm. Recent visitors rave about the spacious rooms, each appointed with deluxe amenities like custom bedding, Molton Brown bath products and Nespresso coffee makers. For an extra dose of luxury, reserve one of the Ginter Suites, which each sprawl across more than 1,000 square feet and come equipped with a king-sized bed, a dressing area and a kitchenette, among other features. One of the best-loved amenities is this downtown hotel's indoor pool and its sequestered outdoor sundeck. Previous visitors also praise on-site restaurants Lemaire and TJ's. Lemaire is an upscale venue that specializes in new American fare, while TJ's is a casual Southern bistro that boasts an extensive selection of seasonal microbrews. Convenience is The Jefferson Hotel's other perk, as it's close to Richmond, Virginia's Museum District sites.

    Salamander Resort & Spa
    Middleburg, VA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1582 reviewsTripAdvisor (1582)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    This resort can be found about 43 miles northwest of Washington, D.C., in Middleburg, Virginia, but with its acres of rolling fields and relaxed atmosphere, it feels like it's worlds away from the hectic capital. Travelers love the colonial decor, complete with hardwood floors, plantation-style architecture and traditional design accents. Guest rooms are spacious and come equipped with flat-panel TVs, minibars and excellent views. Salamander Resort & Spa also features an expansive equestrian facility, allowing guests to test their horseback riding skills (for an additional fee). For something more relaxing, make an appointment at the Salamander Spa, which also houses an infinity pool and a fitness center. Lastly, finish off your day at Harrimans, which earns praise from guests for its locally sourced cuisine. Some caution, though, that service provided throughout the property is disappointing.

    Tides Inn
    Irvington, VA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS

    Families and couples particularly praise the Tides Inn's quaint setting (perched on a marina in the Chesapeake Bay area of Virginia). But they also have good things to say about the resort's eclectic array of activities, which include sailing courses and loaner bikes, canoes and paddleboards. Plus, there's an outdoor pool and the Golden Eagle Golf Club. Previous visitors also praise the accommodations, which come with Egyptian cotton linens, minibars, complimentary Wi-Fi access and marble and mahogany bathrooms with deep soaking tubs. Though some guests do complain that the dining is just subpar given its high cost, others report a satisfactory dining experience throughout the resort's four eateries.

    Craddock Terry Hotel
    Lynchburg, VA
    3.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 945 reviewsTripAdvisor (945)
    Free WiFi

    Once a shoe factory, the Craddock Terry Hotel is hard to miss – it pays homage to its past with a giant red high heel shoe on its facade. Its accommodations offer nods to the building's history, too: The free in-room breakfast is presented to guests in an old-fashioned shoeshine box and shoe memorabilia is present throughout the property. The hotel offers 44 guest rooms and suites, which come with sitting areas, free internet access, minifridges and Keurig coffee makers. Outside the rooms, lodgers will find a 24-hour gym and business center, as well as two on-site restaurants. Travelers can enjoy a steak and seafood at the Shoemakers American Grille or head to Waterstone for wood-fired pizza, salad and sandwiches. Previous visitors were impressed with the hotel's interior and loved its boutique feel (many also said the beds are extremely comfortable). This hotel is also a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, which means iPrefer members can earn and redeem points here. You'll find the Craddock Terry Hotel in downtown Lynchburg, Virginia, about 55 miles east of Roanoke.

    Keswick Hall & Golf Club
    Keswick, VA

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 482 reviewsTripAdvisor (482)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    If the looks are any indication of this Preferred Legend resort's excellence, we're sold. Lush grounds surrounded by Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, architecture inspired by the best Tuscan designs and guest rooms resplendent with soft fabrics and sophisticated furniture are all indicative of the luxury found at Keswick Hall & Golf Club. Recent guests were pleased with this resort's intimate feel (with only 48 rooms, Keswick has a commendable staff-to-guest ratio). Be sure to grab a snack at Villa Crawford, eat dinner at Fossett's restaurant and enjoy a nightcap at Villa Crawford Bar. All three options fare well with recent patrons, but some guests did report hiccups with service for large groups. For a more casual dining experience, retreat to the Club Grill, which also receives two thumbs up from past lodgers. When planning your trip, however, you should keep in mind that this property is located approximately 9 miles east of Charlottesville, Virginia.
