Where Else But the Brickyard for New Year’s Eve on 4 February
Use your imagination… Hot pot, making dumplings, lots to drink, 200,000 firecrackers at midnight followed by “xiaoye” including those dumplings, then a peaceful night’s sleep. Check out our specials on
Finland’s First Lady
We were honored to host Jenni Haukio and her entourage earlier this month at the Brickyard. The Great Wall is a four season destination and usually a bit warmer than Helsinki!

For Auld Lang Syne
We had a dramatic and fun dinner dance for Western New Year’s Eve. The only thing more fun is our tradtional Spring Festival at the Brickyard. For the whole family!

Thank You to Our Team
We held our winter staff party recently… lots of great food and drink and many prizes and games. Thank you to every single person on our staff: Housekeepers, cooks, dishwashers, engineers, drivers, accountants, inventory specialists, sales people, IT team, guards, HR specialists, guest relations team, managers, and more, all dedicated to creating wonderful experiences for our guests. Jim says the hardware is easy but the software is hard. Hospitality is all about people.
Cooking with Randhir
Cassoulet to warm your soul is served by Chef Randhir as a special during Wintertime. Ham hocks, white broad beans, carrots, onions, sausage, confit duck, prosciutto, and bacon meld into an extraordinary experience. See our recipe.

The short days of winter at Mutianyu often end with a show of lambent light illuminating the village homes and the surrounding mountains. Our little corner of the world really is a four season destination.

Executive retreats at the Brickyard: Any time of year is good to get out to fresh air at the Great Wall. Our main business during the week is actually hosting unique, productive, and fun retreats and meetings at the Brickyard for companies and organizations. Learn about our meeting services.
Cathay Pacific Features Brickyard
We were delighted to be featured in Cathay Pacific’s in-flight magazine as one of four hotels in China with amazing views. The image they selected shows La Petite Muraille, one of our homes. Read the article.
Team Focus: Song Cuihong
Song Cuihong, pictured holding vegetables, runs the Brickyard kitchen very strictly. That must be why the team members seem so happy. Chef Song is from Beigou Village and started with us as a dishwasher 12 years ago.
Sustainability in Action
Beigou’s Mayor is committed to a clean and green village. All village homes, including our Brickyard Homes, now separate waste in special bins. As a hospitality business the Brickyard has been separating our wastes and composting all along.
