The Chapel and A Gingerbread House!

Christmas 'ain't' over... not yet, not with my family.

It started Monday and each day since has been a gathering here, a gathering there, here, there, everywhere... I am about worn out.

However, Let me continue with my trip to the Greenbrier...
Day two later in the day.

It seems that Mr. Justice (the owner of the Greenbrier) had a daughter getting married and so he had a chapel built on site so she could get married there. (gee whiz, at the money that man must have spent on that wedding).

There was a 'cantata' at 5 p.m. so the tour director and I headed off in search of more Christmas spirit. We were early so had our pick of seats. Up front for sure. We didn't want to miss a thing.



The stained glass window depicted a mountain scene. The Greenbrier is in the Allegheny Mts.



The six singers who performed for us.



And, me standing near the stage.



Once that was over it was time for my dinner so I had a feast of chicken pictata. Oh yum. 
And, then I headed down a long hall lined with huge conference rooms. Finally found the one I wanted. 


This was the stage decoration


and the gingerbread house was off in one corner.


It was built in 1991 and has been a steady attraction ever since. Nope, no gingerbread here, just plywood but the size and the decoration were worth me walking down that long, long hall looking for it. 

One of the kazillion beautiful staircases in the resort


I got to bed early since our luggage had to be packed and outside the room door by 8:30
We left the next morning.

  2. I agree with Edna, thank you so much for sharing. Most of us will never get there in person, so it was great to see it through your eyes.

  3. Wow, just wow!! That is what I call lush. Glad you explained the gingerbread house. I was wondering how they preserved it. Those staircases are beautiful but I am out of breath just looking. What an adventure you had and me too on vicariously enjoying it with you. Thanks.

  6. You really had a wonderful pre-Christmas adventure in a beautiful setting, Latane. The chapel was wonderful to see and I can imagine the singing was great.
