I stayed at Graylyn in June, 2012 and wrote a review entitled "Graylyn Rocks!". I had the good fortune of staying there once again May 3-5 and I'm pleased to report "Graylyn Still Rocks!" Graylyn is a wonderful old historic estate built of stone so it, does indeed, literally rock! The Estate is stunning and magnificent. The grounds (55 acres) are beautifully maintained and, combined with the interior of the estate, is an invitation to a life of magnificent luxury. As a guest of the Estate, one can quite literally be caught up in the ambiance of "Donwton Abbey." The Graylyn staff is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and always very helpful. Meals are exquisite and well worth the price. My wife and I have enjoyed many of the finest hotels in the USA and abroad but we would choose Graylyn over any others. Reynolda Village and Reynolda Museum of American Art and many other museums and attractions, e.g., SECCA (Southeast Center for Contemporay Art) and SciWorks, are within easy walking distance. The NC wine country (Yadkin Valley Appellation) is 30 minutes away. UNC School of the Arts (with its 400+ drama, film, music and dance performances annually) is 10 minutes away as is Old Salem. Wake Forest University is 5 minutes away. Our past visit was because the Estate was chosen as the location for the NC Chapter of the Knights of the Vine Grand Assemblage and the event was truly Grand! We enjoyed our stay very much!
