The Greenbrier in Photos




As most of you all know, we took an amazing vacation to the Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia in July. My sweet, generous in-laws surprised us with the news of the trip last Christmas. I have been here prior 3 times before throughout my childhood and have wonderful memories of the grand experience. Needless to say, I couldn't wait to get back. This is a true photo overload, but I promise you there were -a ton- more I left off. I hope you enjoy!

Our humble abode.







We headed right out to the picturesque pool overlooking the golf course and breathtaking mountain views.



Garden lovers- you would love it here.











Watching our golfers tee off on the Championship course.


Meanwhile, the girls headed for the spa. 




I spent a lot of free times wandering the halls, snapping photos. 











Princess Grace in the background...


Carriage rides are available all day long.


The main dining room in all its glory...


Ginger Jars...my love language.


Downstairs holds more shops, a few restaurants and the Casino. Signature palm leaf wallpaper is here in full effect, so striking.



 More wandering around with my camera...


No stone is left unturned...look at that classic iron railing.


A little blurry photo of us outside Drapers for lunch...




You can find palm carpet here lining the hallways too. The most comfortable shoes, I might add.



Happy Hour on the terrace.


Dessert every night, of course!


What I refer to as the Kate Spade room. Gimme. Gimme. Gimme.



Now THAT. is a cornice board.


You have to look up or you will miss more fine details. Intricate, delicate, grand chandeliers with more detailing on the ceiling than you've ever seen. 




These prints are framed in the girliest, cutest bathroom ever. Inspiration right here.


Another one of my favorite rooms!



I'm obsessed with this painting- I wish I knew more about it.




On one of our last days we took a long hike through the property.















Many "Happy Hours" at the Greenbrier in Carleton Varney's bar....



Pausing for some pictures on our way to dinner...




Vacay wore this sweet boy out! 


Here are some iphone snaps as well...
























 Carleton Varney's office...







Gone with the Wind chandelier...


He didn't want to leave either...


Whew! What a recap- hope you all enjoyed! Have you even been to the Greenbrier?
