The charming village of Union, which is the Monroe County seat, is less than a 15-minute drive. Banking, healthcare facilities, drugstore, grocery shopping and a great family restaurant are readily available. Some of the friendliest people in West Virginia can be found in Monroe County. Monroe County has a population of about 13,000 residents and does not have a stoplight and has more cattle and sheep than people. There are no fast food restaurants but there is the local restaurant, “Kalico Kitchen”, in downtown Union that is packed each morning for breakfast and then again for lunch.

Lewisburg, which is the Greenbrier County seat, was voted the Coolest Small Town in American in 2011 and is just a 30 minute drive to the thriving downtown historic district. The downtown boasts a year round live theatre, Carnegie Hall, several fabulous restaurants, antique shops and boutiques. There is also a modern hospital and all attendant medical facilities along with all the big box stores.

The Greenbrier County Airport, which has WV’s longest runway, is located just 45 minutes away and has daily flights to Atlanta and Washington DC. The world famous Greenbrier Resort is an hour’s drive and Snowshoe Ski Resort is about 1 1/2 hours’ drive. Covington, Virginia is about 1 hour away, Roanoke, Virginia, is 2 hours, DC is 4 hours and Charlotte, North Carolina is 3 hours away.

The Greenbrier resort features an ever-expanding schedule of public events, including the Greenbrier Classic, a nationally televised PGA tournament held in early July. In 2014, the resort recently opened a new $30 million training facility for the New Orleans Saints, and the football team’s practice sessions in late July and early August are open to the public. A 2500-seat tennis stadium to host professional matches was opened in 2015.
