At this eco-conscious getaway, the altitude and sparsely populated mountain setting presents a cure-all for this ailment, in the form of stargazing. You can wish on whichever one you want – when you view the night sky from the resort's Observatory Dome, expect to see millions.

Travel + Leisure


Whether you set out to climb a tree (with ropes and a guide) or play the 18-hole golf course, you'll want to keep an eye out for the animals that run free; there are so many that Virginia Tech published an official Field Guide to the Nature of Primland, listing every kind of species that has been found on the property. Your neighbors might include black bears, deer, wild turkey, bobcats, and bald eagles.

The Washington Post


A 12,000-acre hunting and fishing preserve, the resort is ultra-luxe, now that the lodge is up and running, complete with a cushy spa, superb restaurant, glass-walled wine vault, great room with twin fireplaces – and above all, so to speak, the observatory.
