We just returned from a long weekend at West Virginia's premier resort, the Greenbrier. What a fantastic place for a gathering of friends or families or to celebrate a special occasion. We did the American Plan, and all of the dining was over the top. If you're a golfer, they have a TPC course ( The Greenbrier Classic was just there a few weeks ago), as well as two others. I love the spa, and don't miss the Rose Petal Wrap service! Southern hospitality reins here, they shower you with service. In addition to golf and spa, there are carriage rides, history tours, bowling, movies, culinary exhibits, billards, a lavish casino, great shops and lots of family activities. I can only imagine how beautiful this Grand Dame would be during the holiday, surrounded by snow. We were four couples traveling together, so we reanted one of the cottages, with four bedrooms and baths and communial areas- perfect for friends and families.
