Greenbrier Farewell

We had a wonderful time at The Greenbrier, relaxing and enjoying each other's company. My camera on the other hand didn't get much downtime. I was beyond inspired by the hotel's history and decor but most of all happy to support such a treasure.

In 1961 Hotel Gazette predicted that The Victorian Writing Room would go down in history as America's most photographed room.

 The room is complete with stationary for guests to write letters...

 and decorated with Fudge Apron fabric.

  EAS & SAS

Sporting Clays are on the agenda for the next visit. 

 ...until we meet again White Sulphur Springs.

Special thanks to the staff at The Greenbrier  for being so friendly, extremely helpful and even reopening the gift shop so sister could get some Excedrin to treat her...stayed out too late in the casino last night migraine.

Next time you go, definitely do the sporting clays. My hubby had an awesome lesson from their guide there, who is an amazing instructor. Very much worth it!

I have found the pictures so fascinating - thanks for the insight - I have never seen decor like it in a hotel before - it's quite special - I love the use of florals and the pink. It makes such a change from corporate drabness (I am so fascinated btw because I work in my parents hotel!)

Wow, great coverage of The Greenbriar. It is one of my favorite places. Carlron Varney is such a great guy and an amazing designer. I love staying at The Greenbriar or The Grand Hotel of Mackinac Islans both properties done by Mr. Varney. If you haven't been to The Grand I would venture a guess that you would enjoy it especially after seeing how much you loved The Greenbriar. Maybe a blogger get-together would be fun at The Grand Hotel???
