About

Over the years, Glen Gordon Manor has hosted members of the British royal family and set the scene for many memorable hunts and balls. Overlooking Shenandoah National Park from 45 acres of pasture, lawns, gardens and parkland. The captivating retreat glories in views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and neighboring farms and vineyards. Tracing its roots to 1833 as a Wells Fargo stagecoach stop, the main house brims with nostalgic settings: a fire-lit entrance hall, a baronial oak hunt room with minstrel gallery, a stone wine cellar, and a charming country kitchen. Guest rooms echo the warm radiance. Luxuriously appointed Glencroft Cottage suites and spacious Gordon Mews House lend further hospitality, along with a sparkling pool and stables. As a guest of Glen Gordon Manor you will have the option of dining in the dining room of the manor house for a full four-course breakfast, or if you prefer we will send breakfast to your room. We have an extensive garden that will provide the seasonal ingredients in your breakfast, as well as fruit trees that still remain from a past orchard. We raise our own organic free range chickens for the eggs that go into the many breakfast creations. What we don’t grow ourselves we procure from local farmers as much as possible.

Top Notch

5 on July 03, 2016

Stayed the night and went to the Glen Manor Wine Dinner. Treated like royalty from the first moment we arrived. The dinner and breakfast were very delicious. The room was a quaint and comfy with a front view of the manor. The entire staff was awesome and we felt like family. Already booked a room and dinner for November. Can't wait for it to arrive. See ya soon! Keep up the awesome food and hospitality.


Wonderful Experience

5 on June 03, 2016

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary over Memorial Day weekend and couldn't have been more impressed. From the beautiful views and immaculate property we immediately felt happy with our choice. Mary and the rest of the staff might us feel right at home upon arrival. Dinner on Friday in the dining room was amazing, each course better than the previous. Despite an afternoon brunch, a full dining room and another private dinner Dayn still found time to prepare us an amazing picnic to take to the Great Meadow Polo match. We will definitely recommend Glen Gordon to friends and family.


An Evening of Relaxed Fine Dining

This is the second fantastic experience at the Houndstooth. Mary was our server and attentive, knowledgeable and on top of the wines. A most relaxed evening of wonderful taste combinations and wine pairings. Chef Dayn did not miss a beat in putting the dishes together. He also came out and served dishes and explained them to the tables. We can not think of a more perfect setting and experience. Lee&Dane


Too good to miss!

This was our second birthday trip to Glen Gordon Manor. The ambience, service, food, presentation was perfect. We had a party of twelve in the great dining room with the big fireplace so we had plenty of privacy. The staff was always near but not hovering. Glasses were refilled at once, plates disappeared,napkins replaced, and our host came out and explained each course. The portions were perfect - no one went away stuffed or hungry, just right. It is THE place for special occasions! Thank you, Dayn, and your staff.


Great Getaway!

My wife and I had a great time getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The service was great and we loved our room. The breakfast was wonderful and capped off a perfect weekend. The massage my wife received was top notch and we can't wait to go back. We would highly recommend Glen Gordon Manor.


Eve of the Eve

We were so pleased with the grounds, service, the food and amenities of this beautiful bed and breakfast - I highly, highly recommend it. I will definitely be heading back to GGM.


Valentines Day 2015 with 6 Couples

After a private wine tasting at Chateau O'Brien we headed to Glen Gordon Manor for a absolutely lovely evening, and wonderful 6 course meal w/wine pairings. The Inn is beautifully situated and the staff and Chef D created a wonderful dining experience in an incredibly comfortable and private setting. We can't wait to plan our next getaway there and would highly recommend it. The Pirovics


Best B&D&B ever!

5 on October 25, 2014

My husband and I stayed at Glen Gordon Manor over the summer, and I can honestly tell you it was one of the best weekends of our life. That's largely due to Dayn, who is not only an exquisite artist with his good but has just the right touch as a host. He's gracious and reserved but warm and accessible and has the kindest way about him. We felt like we were in exceptional hands from the moment we arrived. Our dinner was out of this world- each course more astounding than the last- and we enjoyed breakfast and a picnic he packed us the next day. Dayn even loaned us his backpack to carry our picnic - an assortment of olives and cheese and wonderful salads. We felt that these meals were truly among the best of our lives. I should also add how taken i was with the decor, which Dayn's wife masterfully executed. It's fresh and beautiful with a modern twist. Every detail was a delight. We can't wait to make Glen Gordon Manor a favorite regular getaway.


Country feel with city comforts

5 on October 15, 2014

My husband and I were at Glen Gordon for 2 weekday nights in September. I had chosen Glen Gordon after reading all the excellent reviews and we weren't disappointed. Glen Gordon has managed to effortlessly weave present day amenities into a 19th century manor house. The inn and its rooms are tastefully done without being ostentatious, people are friendly without being intrusive and the breakfast is definitely amongst the best we have had at any b-and-b. A brownie point for upgrading us to the ‘Edward’ room without any additional cost though we had booked the ‘Albert’ room. It definitely made our stay much more comfortable. Trent, who showed us around, even offered to carry our bags for us. B and Bs can be tricky. The picture painted on the website often differs from the real deal. But Glen Gordon delivers as promised. And that’s saying something.


Elegant counrty experience!

5 on October 04, 2014

Upon our arrival at the Manor, Chef Trent greeted us with a glass of champagne and a tour. We immediately felt at home as we listened to the history of the Manor, which included amusing antidotes involving a visit by the Queen of England and her son. We couldn't wait for dinner, as the tour passed through the kitchen where freshly baked loaves of bread and beautiful filets waited to be served as our main course. The five-course meal with wine pairing was exquisite, from the locally sourced food to beautiful presentations. Chef Trent extended the warm and inviting feel of the Manor by presenting and describing several of the courses himself, describing the preparation of the food and history of the wine pairing. The finishing touch was the décor of the dining room, which was designed to enhance a local artist's painting. Overall, we felt Glen Gordon Manor provided a blissful meal in an understatedly elegant setting that complements the serene country environment.
