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

This Manor built in 1832 is so beautiful. When the private residence was converted into a hotel, they did a wonderful job retaining the structure and design of the original estate. Everything is first-rate here. Excellent food, service and even free ice cream!

Graylyn is an interesting look into the Winston-Salem tobacco legacy. The property is gracefully situated on 55 acres, the Manor House is the main accommodation, but the Mews looked delightful, and there are several independent cottages for those seeking privacy. All staff were friendly and eager to help. Perhaps the best feature we found, were the butler's who are actually... More

Graylyn estate is a beautiful property set in the rolling country side of Winston-Salem, NC. The house is historically interesting and provides a quiet retreat. The staff at the house is attentive to every need starting with the butlers who greet you on arrival, help with luggage, and park your car. The check-in process was effortless and quick. The rooms...

What a find in Winston Salem. Imagine feeling like you are in a European castle. Feel like royalty with your own butler helping you to your room or with any other needs you might have. Convenient location across from the Reynolda House and Gardens. Lovely grounds to walk or jog. Wonderful place for a business retreat, wedding or event.

A great property but please know what your gong to get here. Large property to roam and explore. Outdoor pool in use in summer, lots of history to read and a great place to relax. Rooms are small and not modern but have a great feel to them and fit the grounds perfectly. Food is above average, just read and... More
