    Excellent Vendor

    Excellent venue to host a wedding or any other special day.
    The venue supported all our request and due to COVID kept me well informed on what we could / could not do based on NC Governors guidance.
    Additionally, staying at Graylyn made the experience that much more special and took a lot of stress out of that special day.

    Chandler: She did an amazing job walking us around the property, showing us the layout of the manor including hotel rooms available (pet friendly), wedding ceremony, reception, cocktail hour set up, etc. Furthermore, due to COVID, we had to change the date which was a non-issue for Graylyn to include reduction of guest allow from initial contract to final contract.

    Susan: She was amazing! As my daughters "Wedding Coordinator", Susan was easy to work with and facilitated the experience. Furthermore, she was very receptive to all my questions/concerns. Additionally, she was accepting of my tent layout to what I wanted, spreadsheet with table seating, meal selection, special request, and under 21 numbers. Susan and her team had the tent set up when we needed to facilitate our wedding items that we brought, managed the staff during the dinner, and even repacked our wedding items after the event, Overall - Susan handled everything and anything I requested, changed, updated, or had questions. Excellent coordinator, could have not ask for a better coordinator.

    Jennifer (x2) Reservations: Both Jennifer's assisted me when it came to room reservations. Additionally, with COVID, had room cancelations, then rebooking at least 3 times and they both worked with me to insure we had the number of rooms that I needed. Additionally, they ensured we had "pet friendly" rooms.

    Kathy: She was great when dealing with payment(s) and keeping track of all the transactions that I did. She was very helpful if/when I had questions and everything was kept up to date with additions and subtractions from the event.

    Overall, great experience with Graylyn but based on asking my daughter if she was happy and satisfied which is all that matters.
