Rich History

In 1928, Bowman and Nathalie Gray set out to build Graylyn. The historic Graylyn Estate features 85 well-appointed and uniquely decorated guest rooms attractively situated throughout the pristine 55-acre estate. Graylyn emerged as the second-largest private home in North Carolina.

"This venue is truly enchanting for a wedding. From the architecture to all of the grounds, it is truly a hidden gem within the city limits of Winston-Salem. The staff is very attentive but do not hover. This property was easily walkable but also ADA compliant."
-Shea A on TripAdvisor

Altogether lovely!

"Our short stay was a welcome step back to elegance and gracious service. The property is beautiful and it's an easy stroll to Reynolda House and other attractions. We are looking forward to another visit."

Gracious and Responsive

"Everything was provided with professionalism and grace. Thank you for a great stay. The grounds are beautiful. The service is over the top and the amenities are easily accessed and in great working order. Being able to grab a bike on impulse and ride through the property as well as neighboring Reynolda and the Wake Forest campus was a much-appreciated perk. Thank you, Graylyn."

Simply incredible.

“Everything exceeded my wildest expectations. I stayed in the Manor House and truly felt like a lady of the manor. I was also staying for my wedding weekend and I am so happy I did because Graylyn will forever play a special moment in my life. Truly could not recommend enough.”
