Meet The Team

Our staff at Graylyn is driven by something larger than a paycheck – we know that each time we book a room, or schedule a meeting, we are helping to support the community. When you host a meeting, hold a special event, or stay overnight at Graylyn, you’re not only enjoying a luxury experience, you’re investing in education, community, and historic preservation, just as the Gray family envisioned almost a century ago.
