The Graylyn Estate is the perfect place to explore with your family. Original owners Bowman and Nathalie Gray were devoted to their sons, and designed the estate to be welcoming to all visitors. The Gray family was also deeply committed to philanthropic endeavors and supporting the greater community of Winston-Salem. Today, we incorporate those values in everything we do, from serving a guest to hosting a retreat for a Fortune 500 company.

The Graylyn International Conference Center provides 85 guest rooms and 27 meeting rooms, available to all Wake Forest affiliates.

Graylyn is owned and operated by the University.
