I was able to go back to an incredible site this past weekend that is alive with the patina of the past. My husband and I, along with three of our sons, visited our daughter for Parent’s Weekend at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. Adjacent to Wake’s campus is a beautiful old estate that the university now uses as a conference center and inn. We lucked out last year and were able to stay at Graylyn due to a cancellation.( Rumor has it that you have to book quite far in advance to get a room…this year we did not and stayed…at the econo lodge down the street. Perfect place when you are bringing your three sons.) TMI… but we were able to go back to Graylyn this time around to take some more pictures. Both my husband and I were caught totally unaware last year by the beauty of the place and snapped away…both of us lost the pictures when we upgraded our phones.
The property is a path that takes you to days gone by and let’s you glimpse the opulent lifestyle in which its inhabitants lived.
