A Note from John Wise, General Manager

For 92 years, Graylyn has offered a feeling of warmth and welcome for all who have come through the doors. We recall the hundreds of vows exchanged in our gardens, the excitement in the teenager’s eyes coming to explore the beginning of their college journey at Wake Forest (and the nervous emotion of parents). We have celebrated commencements, charity events, corporate meetings and mergers, holiday parties and many other joyous gatherings.

Graylyn will continue to welcome all as we recover from these unique times. We will take the necessary steps to ensure a safe and comfortable return to create more memories, strategize future business successes and explore this beautiful estate.

Until that time, we invite you to connect with us virtually on social media as we will be sharing fond memories, Graylyn facts and trivia, recipes from our Chef and more to help us stay connected. Nothing can replace those face to face interactions we all long for, but for now, separated as we must be, please include Graylyn as a place to stay connected in our new virtual world.

Take good care,

John Wise
General Manager
