I have put an email into Mark Liebermann the Greenbrier Contact....
mliebermann@geoffreyweill.com

I believe there might also be a golf package that you can add on as well.

The address for those looking to drive....
The Greenbrier
300 West Main Street
White Sulphur Springs, WV 24986

Reservations: 855-453-4858


For Air Travel/Hotel....
Lewisburg, WV is about 15 -20 minutes away. Although, I dont think there are any hotels outside of the Greenbrier.

You may want to consider Roanoke, VA it should be about 1.5 hours away and for people traveling on the same dates I can offer a car pool.

Beckley, WV is about 1 hour away but may be a more expensive flight

Charleston, WV is about 2 hours away

Covington ,VA is about 20-30 minutes from the Greenbrier an about 1 hour from Roanoke, VA

Is the parking lot and shuttle stop well marked? BDM
Depending where you are, when you can find the right road, etc. Our first night we were right down the road from the Greenbrier. There is no signage around White Sulphur springs directing you where to park. We had to ask at the welcome center for directions to the fair grounds. We had to turn onto 219 from rt 60. Stay on that road for a little while and then it will split into a 4 lane. Right around there you will see When Pigs Fly. Good BBQ if that's what you like! Shortly after that you will see a small sign on the right that says event parking. When you get near the state fair grounds, there area few more signs. You will make a right turn for parking. Alternatively look for the big tour buses that they are using as shuttles. Takes a while to get to the Greenbrier from there. The truck right is narrow and goes through a residential area.

Everyone was great helping us with directions, so don't hesitate to ask. These people are excited for the business.

I have a bunker tour scheduled for 1:30pm on Friday. I got a call saying that I need to drive to the Greenbrier for the tour, then drive back 12 miles to the "new" parking lot to get on the bus to go back to the Greenbrier for the evening practice. I thought it a bit ridiculous to drive back 12 miles to end up where I started.

How much is it to tour the bunker and how long is it? BDM
The weirdest is that you have to have reservations for it. Tour is 90 minutes. Cost $30 (must be pretty special). I'm a history buff, also retired military, so I can't miss out on the opportunity.

Bergeaux and I were wondering if we were able to bring in food/drinks? Obviously not a huge ice chest, but something that would fit a few 12oz cans/water.

No. They won't allow any outside food or beverage. No back packs or coolers. All you can bring in is what you can carry in your arms (kids, footballs).

Going to the Irish Pub Thursday night? We will be there between 8:30-9pm. Sounds cliche, but look for the old guy wearing a black golf shirt -- nah, black t-shirt with a giant fleur de lis on the front. Me, old dude, 50+, long hair, gray beard. Very young hot smoking wife.

Just yell "BOSTON" -- I will turn my head (my last name). Or yell GASBAG -- watch people run for the door and I will still be sitting at the bar.
