    West Virginia's grandest resort hotel

    by

    The Greenbrier is one of the largest and most luxurious resort hotels in the eastern United States. The hotel is huge, with hundreds of rooms and tons of amenities, including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, ballrooms, shops, multiple restaurants, a spa, and a bowling alley. The hotel's property covers 6500 acres (about 10 square miles) of beautiful mountain scenery, and features golf courses, hiking and horseback riding trails, an off-road driving school, and a shooting range.

    Unique Quality: One of things that makes the Greenbrier unique is its interior decoration, which was designed by Dorothy Draper after World War II. Her decor is the opposite of minimalist, with plenty of marble, chandeliers, floral wallpaper, and big curtains. You will either love it or hate it, but you will definitely notice it!

Visit Tamarack--the Best of West Virginia

by kevanrijn

Tamarack exists to showcase the best in arts & crafts from West Virginia. All of the more than 2,500 artists/craftsmen who sell there must be selected by going through a jury process. They submit samples of their work which are judged by a team of experts & evaluated as to whether or not the work is of a quality to be sold/exhibited at Tamarack (which is a world-class arts and crafts center).

You can shop, dine, watch craft demonstations, attend theatre performances & look at exhibits in the gallery. You will see stunning items for sale, including textiles, agricultural products, glass, pottery, wood, metal, jewelry, quilts, & wearable art. There are things available in a wide variety of price ranges. For example, Tamarack has coffee tables for sale which ring up at a mere $18,000--I've seen some of them--they are truly works of art! But there are more reasonably priced items too. There are six artisan studios at which resident artists pursue their craft. Currently they have a blacksmith, potter, woodworking husband/wife team who make musical instruments, a glassblower and a texile artisan in residence.

If you are hungry, the food court is called "A taste of West Virginia." This is no fast-food type food court--it's managed by the world famous Greenbrier Resort & is staffed with true chefs. The menu features regional specialties. A sample of the menu offerings and prices: "Appalachian Mountain Burger with Red Eye Country Ham, Fried Green Tomatoes, Swiss Cheese, and Real McCoy Mustard Sauce. Served with Golden French Fries and Dill Pickle Spear.....$7.95 Sandwich Only.....$6.95" Or how about "Pan-Fried Fillet of West Virginia Rainbow Trout with Your Choice of Two Side Dishes.....One Fillet $8.95..Two Fillets $13.95" You can get less expensive meals than these--the two fillets of rainbow trout are the only thing I've seen on the menu priced over $10.

This is a wonderful place to buy souvenirs of West Virginia. Check out the website listed below for current exhibits and events and further information.

The Greenbrier - In a class of its own

by A TripAdvisor Member

My wife and I just returned from the Greenbrier afte staying for the first time. We had heard so many good things about the resort that we had to try it for ourselves.

The spa, dining and other amenities were all first class. The dinner(s) in the main dining room were fantastic and the desserts were divine. We highly recommend an after dinner drink(s) in the Tavern and/or the Old White. The staff was fantasic and were treated like royalty.

The spa was great and the Signature treatment is truly one of a kind.

It may appear as if the resort could be a stuffy and pretentious hotel/spa, but nothing is further from the truth. If you are looking for a world class experience, look no further.

Always Loved the Greenbrier

by TripAdvisor Member zfg900704

Don't come here unless you want to relax, have a great time, eat good food and deal with wonderful people all day.

My husband and I came here with our 4 children (ages 11, 9, 6, 4) on July 17-21, 2005. This is our second time at the Greenbrier. We were here in July 1999 with our new born and our children who were then 5 and 3). We had a great time in both occassions.

The staff is so wonderful, the rooms were magnificent and food was excellent. We had lots to do during our stay. My husband and I had a blast taking the off road driving lessons & skeet shooting. My 11 year old daughter and I enjoyed the spa. The boys loved the kids adventure zone program. The whole family loved the Falconry Academy, swimming, bowling, the afternoon tea, the nightly movie and best of all dinner in the main dining room everynight! The chef was excellent and food was fantastic! Our children ordered from either the adult or kids menu or both.

We had a beautiful Junior Suite in the main hotel. It had two bathrooms, a King bed, two closets, 2 TVs and enough room for 3 cots. The sleepsofa was uncomfortalbe so we chose not open it. The 4 year old slept on top of it instead which the maid made up for her everynight. My only complaint about this room was that the airconditioning was too noisy.

The staff specially in the main dining room was so accommodating. I have nothing bad to say about them.

The cost of staying here was money well spent, we plan to come back soon.

Wonderful service

by A TripAdvisor Member

We recently stayed at the Greenbrier over Valentine's day weekend. Beautiful setting, impeccable service, and wonderful food in the main dining room. The rooms were nice, but not exactly what you'd expect for over $550/night and the bathrooms are a bit old and small. Huge heated indoor pool (?Jr olympic size, not quite 50m as advertised but still better than many other hotels) that was very nice. The falconry academy was fun (Mike the wildlife guy was great) and trap shooting was a good experience, too. Everything of course is extra, but worth it. Now the cons, which were relatively minor. Interior design looked like Laura Ashley on acid with its garish fluorescent flowers and neon green paint; we were told that a few of the rooms actually glow or perhaps just look like they do. The spa was only average especially for the steep prices. Hand massage/mineral therapy and manicure was 70$ and was really just a manicure with some fancy lotion. But overall, we had a great experience. The Greenbrier has 1800 on staff, most of which are from the local area. They all seem to take great pride in their work and every single person seemed genuinely courteous and helpful without being obsequious or waiting for tips.

Beautiful Grounds & Pools, Exemplary Service

by TripAdvisor Member mkatrack

We visited The Greenbrier the night of April 20, 2004, with our 11 year old daughter. (We received the benefit of the April Golf Package, which was $359, quite a reduction from the regular rate, and that is significant). Frankly, we are not regulars of the luxury travel mode, so this was a novel experience. And we are pleased to report that it was a wonderful and memorable one. We were very impressed with The Greenbrier, not only the resort facilities and the grounds, but the unfailingly wonderful service and courtesies that the staff exhibited. We also particularly enjoyed the indoor pool, which is just an incredibly beautiful facility; it closes at 7 PM this time of year. The outdoor infinity pool was also impressive (open noon to 4 PM this time of year). We also enjoyed the tea time, with the excellent desserts, complemented by the concert. They also serve appetizers prior to dinner in the Great White Room (or something like that) and coffee in the morning with delicious home baked, fluffy donuts (chocolate covered with nuts or coconut among others). The grounds are just immaculate and impressive and grand and it was enjoyable just to walk around and explore. The only “extras” we participated in was the horseback ride for $60/per person. Yes, a little steep but as with everything else they do, they think of everything in a very classy way. For example, we mounted the horses using a step up block, in an actual small walking ring. And the ride itself is very safe and slow paced. And although the clientele is obviously affluent, I did not get any sense of “stuffiness” while we were there. Note, though, that when we were there, the hotel wasn’t all that crowded, so the feel could be different at other times, although other reviewers don’t suggest that. The food , while not the best we have ever eaten, was nonetheless quite good, and no reason to complain. Was it worth it? Well, to the extent that any stay at a resort is worth this price, The Greenbrier most assuredly is. We have no regrets about doing it at all. Instead, we have wonderful memories and a desire to return.

Wonderful Trip, Can't Wait to Return

by TripAdvisor Member lt579

My husband and I had the most wonderful time at the Greenbrier. The service was flawless – very well trained, thoughtful, attentive, always friendly, and never stuffy. The food was also fantastic. The meals in the main dining room are wonderful, but we paid extra to eat in the Tavern Room for two nights. We are both foodies and thought the meals at the Tavern Room were some of the best we've ever had. The activities were great. We decided to try skeet shooting even though neither of us had picked up a gun before. The instructor was very good and patient and by the end we had hit most of our targets. We had a great time and can’t wait to go back. Unfortunately we'll have to save up for our next visit, but it was well worth the expense.

Cooking classes vacation

by joebarcas

I don't think I've seen this posted before. My wife and I are interested in going away for a week-end of cooking classes. Maybe at an Inn in New England or in the Washington DC Metro area, or into Virginia. Nothing for the professional, but for someone who knows their way around the kitchen a little above average. I've heard of some, but any input would be appreciated. Thanks. Pax, Joe

Western Massachusetts has a few lovely weekend Inn sessions. Look up the Red Lion Inn, or other places around there. My parents went to one and LOVED it. I'll try to get the name of it out of them. Good luck!
