The Greenbrier Resort
The Greenbrier is an award-winning resort located in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia. Since 1778, the Greenbrier's classic architecture, interior design, scenic beauty, and outstanding amenities have hosted distinguished guests including 26 Presidents. The historic resort has a large selection cottages and houses for larger groups and families. We recently stayed in a three-bedroom South Carolina Row house, originally constructed in the mid-1800s. Each cottage is now decorated in Dorothy Draper style and features a living room, dining room, fireplace and porch. Our two older girls shared a room with two double canopy beds (“the princess room”) and our two- year old stayed in the third bedroom in a crib provided by the Greenbrier.
Our cottage was just across the way from the main house, restaurants, spa, indoor pool, fitness and bowling center and a short walk from the green, gazebo and playground. While the kids were at kids’ club, we enjoyed the spa, a dinner date at Sam Snead’s Tavern, a bike ride around the grounds and our first round of skeet shooting. Older kids will love the “bunker tour.” You can visit the former secret U.S. Government Relocation Facility with enough beds for all of Congress. Very James Bond! We all agreed that The Greenbrier deserves every one of those five diamonds. Nightly rates for Greenbrier cottages begin at $500
