The Greenbrier, located in Sulphur Springs, WV has been known as America’s Resort for over 200 years. This historic hotel has hosted Presidents, served as a War Hospital and seen many changes over the centuries while maintaining a high level of hospitality.
Everything is meticulously maintained throughout the property from the gardens to the accommodations.
I definitely wanted to take a picture of every single thing! The interiors were designed by the world renowned Dorothy Draper! Bold colors and patterns are mixed throughout the resort. I’m now adding Draper’s In The Pink book to my wish list. Resort guests are treated to complimentary coffee and tea each morning as well as an Afternoon Tea.
The Greenbrier offers single rooms, suites, guest cabins and cottages to rent. We stayed in the Main Hotel and felt like we were transported back to a more elegant time.
You certainly will not be bored at the resort with indoor and outdoor pools, golf courses, tennis courts, falconry, horseback riding, hiking trails, fly fishing, special workshops, shopping and much more. Seth enjoyed a day out on the golf course!
The Infinity Pool has amazing views with under water speakers and poolside dining.
Did I mention that I wanted to take a picture of everything?
You can’t go to the Greenbrier and not have one of Draper’s famous milkshakes or ice cream cones. All of their ice cream is made on site. There are several dining options from casual options like Drapers with soups and sandwiches to Prime 44 West, a steak house honoring NBA Legend and West Virginia native, Jerry West. The lobster mashed potatoes from Prime 44 West were amazing! The Main Dining Hall was closed while we were there due to social distancing but looked very grand. One thing to note is that a historical fee is added to all meals and purchases.
My girl had just been to a horse riding camp in Franklin before our trip so she wanted to go horseback riding there too. While we were both a little nervous, we had the best time on Skywalker and Petey! It was a fun way to take a tour around the property. I would suggest making reservations for the restaurants and activities in advance. We booked our trip the day before so it was a little tougher to find the activity reservations we were looking for.
The Greenbrier was an amazing experience! We made so many wonderful memories and can’t wait to go back to this gorgeous resort again!
*The Greenbrier has social distancing measures in place from hand sanitizing stations throughout the property, limited seating in restaurants and capped capacity at 50% for the pools. We made reservations for the outdoor pool.
