ACCOMMODATIONS Whether you’re watching your budget or in- terested in treating yourself to unparalleled luxury, the Greenbrier Valley has what you’re looking for. Local accommodations range from campgrounds to the world famous Greenbrier, a high-end historic resort that has catered to presidents, celebrities and royalty. There are budget motels, country inns, bed-and-breakfasts, airbnb accommodations in private homes, rental cab- ins and RV parks. Hotel chains near the Lewisburg I-64 interchange include Holiday Inn Express, Quality Inn, Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn and Suites, and Su- per 8 Motel. Downtown Lewisburg has the quaint, antique-filled General Lewis Inn, an easy stroll to shops and restaurants. Other unique lodging choices in the region include the Creekside Resort and Spa in Monroe County, the James Wylie House in White Sulphur Springs, The Edgarton Inn in Ronceverte, and the Inn at Mountain Quest in Pocahontas County. Even if you don’t stay at the Greenbrier, the resort is well worth a day visit. The hotel traces its roots back two centuries to the days when travelers came to “take the waters” at healing springs for their supposed medicinal value. A cottage industry grew up around the resort, and in 1913 the elegant main building opened. Redecorated in vibrant colors and patterns in the late 1940’s by the famed interior designer Dorothy Draper, the property took on a new life, and its popularity has continued to grow over the decades. Today’s Greenbrier offers an endless array of amenities spread over 10,000 acres, including a dozen restaurants, a casino, four championship golf courses and an exclusive residen- tial community, the Greenbrier Sporting Club. SHOPPING AND DINING Visitors to the area always enjoy poking around the shops and boutiques in downtown Lewisburg, which offer everything from local pottery to fine wines. The town is especially lively on the first Fridays of the month, when stores extend their hours, galleries have openings, and there’s live music in the streets. White Sulphur Springs offers a similar experi- ence monthly on the third Thursdays. If you’re looking for comfort food or fine dining, you’ll find plenty of both. Familiar chain restaurants include Apple- bees, Ruby Tuesday and Bob Evans, and a wide array of fast food outlets. If you’re feeling more adventurous, there’s a French bistro, a steak house, pizza from a wood-fired oven, and even an old-fash- ioned drive-in that’s been featured on TV shows. Most towns in the Greenbrier Val- ley have special places where the local like to eat – just ask and they’ll be glad to tell you about them. 38 | Greater Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce
