My girlfriend and I stayed at the Graylyn while visiting the area for the "Vintage in the Vineyards" historic BMW owners' event. We stayed in the main house and we were stunned at how over-the-top beautiful and elegant the Graylyn truly is. There were several weddings going on at the time, but that just added to the excitment and warmth of the stay. We felt like we had the place to ourselves at times. The place is like a European villa or castle as well as a museum. The staff loves to show you around and explains all of the unnbelievable architecture and interior decor and art. All the staff treated us like royality and tended to our every whim with a warmth and sincerity very rarely experienced. The breakfast was excellent. The rooms were perfect. We enjoyed spending hours roaming around inside and outside exploring and enjoying. It was a magical experience. The price was perfect and based on how great everything was - a real bargain. It just couldn't have been better. I am hesitant to let this secret out because I don't want the Graylyn to get too popular and make it too crowded and harder for us to have that feeling that it belonged to us for that weekend. I want to return and enjoy it again and again.
