About the Resort

A National Historic Landmark, The Greenbrier represents more than two centuries of history with classic architecture, exquisite interior design, carefully sculpted landscape and impeccable service. This full-service resort has 721 guest rooms, including 33 suites and 96 guest and estate houses.

They also offer falconry, fishing, trap and skeet shooting, hiking, walking, jogging and bike trails, indoor and outdoor pools, bowling, nightly movies and more than 30 shops. In addition, there are 10 lobbies and a complete conference facility with 30 meeting rooms.
During the height of the Cold War, the US Government built a relocation facility for Congress at The Greenbrier and today the resort offers tours of this once top secret bunker.
The 112,544 sq. ft. bunker was maintained in a constant state of readiness for more than 30 years. The bunker included 18 dormitories, designed to accommodate over 1,100 people. The facility also contained a power plant, communications area, clinic, meeting rooms and lounges.
The bunker’s location remained a secret until May 31, 1992 when The Washington Post published an article, “The Last Resort” exposing the facility. In 1995, the US government ended the lease agreement with The Greenbrier and later that year, the resort began offering tours.
The cost of the tour is $30 per adult and $15 per child ages 10-18. Minimum age is 10 years. Cameras, cell phones and electronic devices are not permitted. For information and reservations, please call 304-536-7810.
