Visit to the Greenbrier

Last weekend my grandmother and I visited the Greenbrier Resort (near Lewisburg, WV) to see my mom and her students participate in a culinary competition. The Greenbrier has a history that extends from the 1770s and an amazing interior design created by decorator Dorothy Draper. Following WWII, Draper put her mark on the Greenbrier from 1949 until well into the 60s. Her aesthetic is very bold and features lots of florals and geometric designs. The Gastby-esque indoor pool is one of my favorite features, and I cannot resist the handmade chocolate truffles. The Greenbrier is a fantastic weekend getaway, but if you have time during the week, prices are much lower. Be sure to try afternoon tea!
