WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WEST VIRGINIA -- THE GREENBRIER
Originally built to provide rooms and meals for people traveling to White Sulphur Springs to take the waters, The Greenbrier has evolved into a Mobil Four Star and AAA Five Diamond Award winning luxury resort. The resulting property, however, still provides the rest, relaxation and rejuvenation that the original resort was designed to deliver -- just in more of a 21st century kind of way.
With varied guest accommodations, including hotel rooms, suites, cottages, and houses, there is literally something for everyone. Whether a honeymoon, a getaway from the stress of everyday life, a corporate retreat, or a family reunion, their 700+ rooms spread throughout the 6,500 acres provide inviting and comfortable lodging options in a charming Southern resort ambiance.
Activities run the gamut at The Greenbrier. From the challenges of a round of golf or an invigorating tennis match, to an off-road driving course, to mountain biking, or a cooking class, the active pursuits are plentiful. If relaxation is more your cup of tea, treatments in their renovated spa, carriage rides, croquet, or (literally) a cup of tea at the daily afternoon tea might be more of what the doctor ordered. Other unique options abound including the Greenbriers Falconry Academy, tours of the once-secret bunker, and bowling.
Dining at the Greenbrier is truly an exquisite experience in its own right. Whether its a casual lunch at Drapers Café; snacks at Slammin Sammys after a round of golf; fine dining at the kitchen bar, or overlooking the golf course at Sam Sneads; a cocktail at the Lobby Bar; or an ultra-gracious experience at the quintessential Main Dining Room, the dining options define the essence of the Greenbrier.
The Greenbrier Resort should be on everyones bucket list -- at least once.
