Explore The Greenbrier’s Iconic Influence

White Sulphur Springs has long been an American favorite for vacationing since the late 1700s. Today, after a long and proven history of being America’s resort, The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs warmly welcomes guests to its paradise tucked away in the pines. Not only is the resort famous for its mineral springs and amenities, but it’s also one of the most iconic buildings in the Mountain State.

The Greenbrier’s Background

Resting in the breathtaking mountains of West Virginia, The Greenbrier is a historic landmark and award-winning resort that’s been serving guests for over 235 years. Sitting on 11,000 acres, the resort provides guests ample space to explore. The natural mineral springs nearby drew early Americans to the area in the 1700s which eventually led to the construction of the resort. Today, tens of thousands of guests every year are still drawn to the refreshing mineral springs and West Virginia’s natural beauty.

The Greenbrier resort has been America’s playground for a long time, and management intends to keep it that way, having recently added a branch of real estate to their arsenal of amenities and services. Now, guests can carve out their own little slice of heaven here in the hills of West Virginia. Through the resort's real estate wing, guests can find an architect and builders to help create their dream vacation home. For those who want to enjoy the mineral springs and mountains right now, The Greenbrier also offers rooms for rent and vacation homes for sale that showcase just the full customization available thanks to the resort’s architects and builders.

The Greenbrier’s Bounty of Amenities


The resort doesn’t just boast a natural mineral spring and outdoor beauty; over the years, a variety of facilities have been added to the grounds to add attractions that bring guests outside. One of the first additions built was the President’s Cottage Museum. Having hosted 26 presidents, The Greenbrier decided to dedicate a two-story building with exhibits that told the story of these presidential visits and the history of the property. Following this, the resort has added more recreational activities like:

  • Four 18-hole golf courses
  • 10 tennis courts
  • Guided fly fishing
  • Mountain biking
  • Horseback riding
  • Kayaking
  • Whitewater rafting
  • Sports performance center

About the Historic Preservation Fund

The Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) collects 6.5% of the hotel’s net revenue and uses this money to help preserve and protect the property’s landscapes, buildings, and amenities that have been so foundational to The Greenbrier’s success as America’s resort. Of course, the fund also plans to make continuous improvements and innovations to keep the resort up to date and modern. The fund will also use proceeds to make improvements to the surrounding communities, helping to usher in future generations looking to enjoy The Greenbrier.
