This place is nothing but class! We happened to mention to the valet that it was our 50th anniversary. After checking in and exploring this incredible estate we return to our room to find complementary champagne and the most delicious chocolate covered strawberries. What a treat!!!! Later when we went down to dinner we found they has set us up... More

It's not often you can say went into a fairytale but that is what Graylyn Estates is. The moment the "Butler" opens the doors you are treated like royalty. All the staff were gracious and helpful. This is situated on 59 acres just outside of Winton Salem. It is an historic home that is a none profit, linked to Wake... More

It's not often that I feel this way when on the road traveling. The staff here are superb. Loved the conversations and service! Wake Forest has a hidden gem with this property. Couldn't have been more comfortable. The bikes and free ice cream took it over the top for me! Can't wait to come back....

We have had the pleasure of staying at the Graylyn on three separate occasions and it has been wonderful each time. My wife has been a graduate student at Wake Forest University so we have stayed at the Graylyn over weekends she has had events on campus. The level of service while at the Graylyn is above anything you could... More

This stone estate is situated on a rolling expanse of beautifully landscaped land a few miles from Wake Forest University. The service is impeccable, including butlers to greet you at the door. The rooms can be quirky, as is to be expected with a 100 year old facility. Be sure to visit the "ice cream room" and grab a sweet... More

We spent two nights at the Graylyn while our son attended a camp at Wake Forest. The estate location was perfect - walking distance to Reynolda Village and Gardens with easy access to the school. Staff from the estate provide complimentary shuttles to dining at Reynolda Village. Our suite was spacious and comfortable and seemed to be recently updated. It... More

I won a stay at the Graylyn Estate as part of a contest and was so excited to bring my mom here for a weekend getaway. As soon as you enter the premises of the 55-acre estate, you are transported to another place. The grand building (Manor House) sits on this lush green property and it is like something out... More

We spent 2 nights here for a wedding of a friend. This place is beautiful. The inside looks like a castle with many small rooms to wander through (and eat in!). The grounds are stunning. It is located next to Wake Forest University. The breakfast buffet is very good, and the dinner we had at the wedding was excellent.

We decided to return to this beautiful manor home and properties to view an exhibit being held on an adjacent property. We were housed in the Mews, in what was the old stables. Our room was quite comfortable, clean and the amenities (such as turn down service in the evening) are wonderful. Complimentary ice cream, if you care to indulge,... More

Graylyn is a beautiful property, but the buck pretty much stops there. The staff was kind throughout, but our experience was terrible, especially considering the high price. I reached out to them to upgrade our room, letting them know several times that it was our anniversary. They did absolutely nothing to acknowledge the occasion, hotels that cost $200 less a... More
