For more than two centuries, The Greenbrier has been America’s Resort™. Drive through its main gate, and you’ll immediately be whisked away by its breath-taking beauty and exquisite, sweeping landscape.
The Greenbrier’s stately grandeur is unmistakable –sprawling Georgian architecture, meticulously manicured gardens, ballrooms, sweeping staircases and lavishly distinctive décor draping every surface. It is a timeless classic that maintains a high standard of elegance while catering to the expectations and creature comforts of twenty-first-century travelers.
A scenic and picturesque setting, The Greenbrier resort is located in the Allegheny Mountain range that flanks the eastern seaboard. In its earliest days before the Civil War, American gentry was lured by the cool summer breezes and restorative mineral waters that bubbled up from these mountains.
Drive through the main gate today, and you’ll immediately feel whisked back to grander times. Long-honored traditions and a checklist of “holiday” must-haves have shaped these 11,000 acres into a vacation paradise--spacious accommodations, private estate homes, boutique shopping, golf courses, pools, tennis courts… everything that you would expect from a destination resort.
TAKE TIME OUT. “Taking the waters” at The Greenbrier dates back 240 years. Today’s Mineral Spa experience continues to embody the healing properties of the sulphur springs in its therapeutic and restorative spa treatments. In addition, you’ll find a holistic approach to wellness at The Greenbrier Clinic and MedSpa with personalized healthcare and aesthetic services.
If your visit to the Valley includes an overnight stay at The Greenbrier, try your luck at the Casino Club, a mix of slots, gaming, live entertainment and international cuisine. Descend the red carpet staircase and you’ll discover where “Monte Carlo meets Gone with the Wind!”
Golf continues to be a favorite activity at the resort… and rightly so. Several world-class courses including The Old White are available to guests of all levels. Each course takes advantage of the lush, mountain landscape in the region with rolling fairways, natural water features and mature hardwood trees.
TOUR A COLD WAR BUNKER. Exposed by a reporter in 1992, the bunker had been kept secret for more than 30 years. It was a relocation center for the U.S. Congress, equipped with House and Senate chambers, dorms, power plant, clinic, cafeteria… even a decontamination area. Step through a 25-ton blast door to learn what life would have been like deep under The Greenbrier resort.
DINE IN STYLE. While the options are nearly endless when planning time at The Greenbrier, it’s the dining experience that boasts the perfect pairing to any event or weekend getaway. Eight restaurants and a team of chefs offer their own style of rich Southern fare to international cuisine—local, farm-to-fork freshness and everything in between.
Of course, any first-time stay should include dinner in the Main Dining Room. Stately columns, ornate chandeliers and full-length windows set the tone for an evening of refined Southern fare, often inspired by fresh produce harvested from The Greenbrier’s 43-acre Chef’s Garden.
