The Greenbrier, known affectionately as America’s Resort, dates back to 1778, when visitors first came to the beautiful property to drink and bathe in the waters of the natural sulphur springs. Nearly 250 years later, those same waters are used for signature treatments in The Greenbrier’s world-renowned mineral spa, and that’s just one of the many attractions that bring guests from across the country to this storied resort each year.
Any time is perfect for a visit to The Greenbrier. Spring brings mild temperatures and beautiful florals. Summer features lush green on the surrounding Allegheny Mountains, while fall turns the landscape into an artist’s canvas with vivid colors transforming the picturesque backdrop. Winter often delivers a fresh blanket of snow, giving the valley a different but equally impressive look.
Though the scenery at America’s Resort is unmatched, guests don’t just come for the views. The resort offers more than fifty-five indoor and outdoor activities, including iconic golf courses, tennis, pickleball, equestrian, falconry, off-road driving, the gun club, bowling, escape rooms and much more. America’s only private casino — available only to overnight guests and members — offers slots, table games and the FanDuel Sportsbook. There are even daily tours of a secret Cold War bunker that was to house the United States Congress in the event of an attack on America.
Dining is another unforgettable pastime at The Greenbrier, with more than twenty restaurants, bars and lounges scattered throughout the 11,000-acre property. The historic Main Dining Room has been serving breakfast and dinner to discerning guests since 1913, while Prime 44 West — named for West Virginia native and NBA icon Jerry West — is an award-winning steakhouse filled with great food and incredible memorabilia. West isn’t the only sporting icon honored as part of The Greenbrier’s mouthwatering dining collection. Sam Snead’s and Slammin’ Sammy’s at The Greenbrier Golf Club serve as a shrine to the PGA TOUR’s all-time wins leader, Sam Snead, who spent the majority of his career at America’s Resort.


Another unique aspect of The Greenbrier is its timeless Dorothy Draper decor. The legendary New York interior decorator was responsible for giving the resort a new look following a stint during World War II when it was used as an Army hospital. Her trademark checkered floors, bright colors and floral patterns set The Greenbrier apart from the rest. The company she founded still decorates The Greenbrier today, and when guests step through the front doors, her impact is felt immediately.
Special events throughout the year make a visit to America’s Resort even more memorable. Home for the Holidays runs from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, and no place embraces the spirit of the season quite like The Greenbrier. In May, nearly one hundred of the finest collector cars in the world gather around the famed entrance for The Greenbrier Concours d’Elegance. Holidays like Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July and others are met with special programming and events, and the resort even plays host to professional golf, college basketball and NFL training camps.


Accommodations range from luxury rooms to suites, cottages and estate homes, with configurations to meet the needs of any family or group. More than 200,000 square feet of flexible meeting space make The Greenbrier the perfect destination for groups of any size, with vendors and an events team on the property ready to meet each guest’s every request.
A visit to America’s Resort is a must for those looking for a commitment to luxury and legendary, authentic hospitality that can only be found at The Greenbrier.
