So with Thanksgiving upon us, we thought it only fitting to take a look at one of the nation’s most historic towns. What we find might surprise you! Tell us which is more you, the Greenbrier-Inspired Splurge or the Pioneer Cabin Steal?

Classic and timeless, this historic stunner is a feast for the senses! Fondly known as “Eastgate” this exceptional Lewisburg home was originally built in 1921, then improved over time.
Most interestingly, the interiors are by Carleton Varney – the famed president of Dorothy Draper Interiors! He is also responsible for the current interiors of the Greenbrier Hotel! From room to room his hand is in it all!
Here you’ll enjoy two-stories of luxury living with custom carpets from Ireland and hand painted walls and ceilings. Step inside to find a dramatic and stately staircase coupled with a classic checkerboard floor.
The formal dining area alone is like living in a piece of art! And it’s sure to wow guests at your next dinner party or Thanksgiving celebration. Bedrooms feature in high-end wallcoverings and hallways and living areas are draped in the soft glow of chandelier lights.
Additional high notes include lush landscaping and a total of four fireplaces. Plus, there is an expansive porch, gazebo, and fantastic terrace overlooking the grounds.
