Hiking around the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway in Southern Virginia can be exhausting, so you’ll want to make sure you have top-notch accommodations to rest your weary head. Our Forbes Travel Guide editors share their list for the best places to stay in Southern Virginia:

1. Primland. Situated on 12,000 acres of verdant Blue Ridge Mountain land, Primland was made for relaxation. The property is made up of a Lodge with 26 rooms, six Fairway Cottages and 12 Mountain Homes, for a total of 44 accommodations. Guest rooms are comfortable and cozy, and outdoor fire pits and live music on the terrace add to a cabin-like feel. Primland also offers countless activities on its property, including tree climbing, sporting clays, horseback riding, tennis, golf, geocaching (a high-tech treasure hunt), stargazing and fly fishing.

2. Hotel Roanoke. You’ll find this historic hotel in the town of Roanoke. The restored property — originally built in 1882 — features traditional guest rooms, more than 63,000 square feet of conference space, in-room spa services, and golf partnerships with three local clubs and courses.

3. The Martha Washington Hotel & Spa. This charming property located in Abingdon, Va., looks like it was pulled right out of a history book with its crisp white columns, wood-burning fireplaces and plush fabrics found throughout. Be sure to check out the town while you’re there; it’s home to the William King Museum, The Arts Depot and White’s Mill.
