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.

My wife and I spent a weekend at Glen Gordon Manor for her birthday. It was an exceptional experience and truly memorable. Dayn, Trent, and the entire staff were phenomenal hosts from the moment we arrived until our departure. Each encounter, from chatting in the kitchen to conversations in the sitting room, were personal and quite welcoming. The grounds have spectacular views and impart an ideal sense of tranquility. The room and main house were excellent as well, comfortable and inviting at every part of the day. And lastly, the dining was exquisite. Each dish was beautifully prepared and resulted in a divine culinary experience. We highly recommend Glen Gordon Manor for special occasions and the quick getaway, and plan to return again in the near future.

My wife and I celebrated a significant birthday with a four day weekend at the Glen Gordon Manor. This was our second trip, and the service and hospitality were exceptional. The meals were wonderful -- breakfasts featured a number of dishes which were all excellently prepared and the portions were sized to let you enjoy all the 'courses'. We had dinner one evening served at a discrete table for two in the Hunt room, and it was a real pleasure to have the chance to talk about the dishes, ingredients, and preparation with each course. We did a wine pairing with one dinner, and the selections were all marvelous, and complimented the dishes very well. The next night we had dinner in the kitchen (at our request), and the chance to talk with Trent (and whoever else was in attendance -- it really feels like family when you visit) about the meal, and cooking in general, always gives me new ideas of how to prepare meals at home. Glen Gordon Manor is highly recommended, and we will be going back again when time permits.

We recently stayed at Glen Gordon Manor for 3 nights. It was a wonderful experience in every way. We had breakfast and dinner there and the food was incredible! Dayn, Nancy, and Trent do a terrific job. Beautiful rooms (we stayed in the two bedroom side of the cottage) and the setting is so peaceful with rolling hills, clucking chickens and grazing horses. Relaxation is easy amongst the towering trees with swings and seats beneath the canopy. The pool is a perfect 85 degrees and the waterfall mesmerizes and lends itself to napping after a day visiting the nearby local wineries . Dayn was extremely helpful with directions, suggestions regarding vineyards and pointing us to the best meals in the vicinity. All in all a little slice of heaven in the beautiful Virginia Shenandoah Valley.

One of a kind B&B. A perfect stay right in the middle of VA Wine Country. Will be back!

My wife and I tried to book a weekend stay in the winter, but unfortunately they were all full. In hindsight, that turned out to be a good thing, as our weekend trip this past weekend was perfect -- every part of it. The food, the rooms, the views, and the hospitality were all impeccable. My wife and I love staying at B&Bs and we typically like to mix it up and try different places. That tradition will be broken the next time we visit the area, as -- after this past weekend -- there's absolutely no other place that we'd rather stay than Glen Gordon Manor. Dayn, Nancy, and Trent were all warm and welcoming hosts. Our time there felt less like the standard "pay money, get a room" exchange and more like staying the weekend with friends. Most owners probably wouldn't be up for discussing the intricacies of Legos, paint colors, and chickens over morning coffee. Or, most chefs would probably get annoyed with a guest's endless stream of questions about how to properly sharpen knives or how to best prepare a sunchoke. Not Dayn and Nancy, and not Trent. As we were preparing to checkout, Dayn gave us a dozen fresh eggs to take home and -- I'm being serious -- as we walked out to the pool for one last look of the place, a deer ran across the lawn right in front of us. If it weren't so impossible, I would've sworn that deer was trained to do that for every guest as one final 'Wow' factor :) My wife and I have told several of our friends about the place and have already started to plan a visit back to the area for the fall. Can't wait. When you do go, be sure to book dinner reservations there. We wanted a taste of the area and thought that breakfast at Glen Gordon would suffice. We were wrong, as we just weren't that impressed w. the other highly-rated restaurants that we tried. Let Dayn and Trent do it right for you.

The weekend was perfect from start to finish. The hospitality, impeccable cuisine, and casual elegance made it one of the best - maybe THE best - experiences of our lives. We have been to many places like this and Glen Gordon had everything we love and nothing we didn't.

My boyfriend & I frequently visit B&Bs in the DC area, and this is our favorite! (We just spent our third weekend there). The rooms are superb and the food is amazing. We highly recommend the 5-course dinner, and the day-long cooking class. If you need a romantic getaway -- This one's not to be missed!

My wife and I recently booked three nights at Glen Gordon Manor in Huntly, Va, a unique and memorable experience that one would be hard pressed to imagine available in a standard bed and breakfast lodging. Situated on 45 acres of pasture, expansive lawns, gardens, and towering trees in Rappahannock County, Glen Gordon Manor is serene, comfortable and restorative, with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and scenes of its horses grazing in the pastures. We were lodged in the Windsor Suite, located in a two suite separate building. The suite was tastefully decorated and came with an I-Pad connected to a surround sound system, in suite coffee, refrigerator and an expertly appointed bathroom with dual showers, a bathtub, toiletries and robes. The main building has several guest rooms along a corridor that leads to a most inviting sitting room with fireplace and a library. There is an outdoor pool surrounded with grass and lounge chairs, including a gazebo and a screened-in porch. Dayn Smith and his wife, Nancy Moon, are the gracious hosts. Dayn is an executive chef and he and Nancy are the current owners of specialty restaurants in another locale. Dayn prepares gourmet breakfasts each morning, served either in the elegant dining room or in a relaxing solarium style room overlooking gardens and pastures. But the most unique feature is that Dayn and Nancy offer a nightly dinner service for their guests’ convenience, featuring Dayn’s exemplary cuisine. There’s no obligation to select the dinner service. You are simply asked if you have dinner plans, and if so, Dayn offers to make dinner reservations for the guests. If you decide on the dinner service (highly recommended, we dined there two nights) you simply inform Dayn and all will be ready at a mutually agreed upon dinner hour. Two dinner options are available, one with wine pairings, the other without the wine parings, although single bottles of wine are available.
