Greenbrier Valley Real Estate Blog
Wednesday, February 04 2009

From the late 1950s until 1995, the 721-room Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W.V., was a prosperous retreat often enjoyed by U.S. presidents and visiting dignitaries. Due to its remote location, it also served as an emergency backup location for Congress, complete with an underground bunker.

Thankfully, it was never needed for that purpose, and today the Georgian-style mansion has continued its tradition of hospitality as a secluded getaway. A bit more accessible these days, thanks to a new twice-daily direct service from Cleveland to nearby Lewisburg , W.V., the resort offers year-round activities of interest to all, from stately dinners in the main dining room to horse-drawn carriage rides along snowy lanes to after noon tea by the hearth (a Greenbrier tradition since the 1930s). The resort even has its own museum. And for the more adventurous, there's snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and an offroad driving school that crisscrosses 6,500 acres of mountain and forest.
