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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the GG Manor back in August. Now I'm not normally given to writing reviews for establishments; but the exceptional service, cuisine, and atmosphere prompted me to do so! First, this gorgeous manor is in a somewhat secluded area (which happens to be in the middle of Virginia wine country) with beautiful views of the Shenandoah Mountains. For those who reside in the Washington DC Metro Area (like me), it's a PERFECT break from city life. Even if you don't live in the DC Area, it's definitely worth the drive/flight! Second, the food is OUTSTANDING! Every course or snack was delectable and memorable. I also truly appreciate their commitment to using fresh local ingredients. And despite the haute nature of these meals, they are served in an unpretentious manner. The chefs are more than happy to talk about their backgrounds, methods, and cooking philosophies – a real testament to their commitment to bring you a truly fine dining ‘experience’. Lastly, the service is FIRST-RATE! Dayn, Trent, and the rest of the staff are very welcoming, knowledgeable, accommodating, and engaging. They are quick to tend to your needs and truly make you feel at home. We can’t wait to get back, and are already considering a trip close to the holidays. I can only imagine how beautiful it must look during that time of the year…… Kudos to The Glenn Gordon Manor for its achievement in excellence!

I am a happy patron of Glen Gordon Manor, having enjoyed their exceptional lodging and exquisite dining on several occasions. I was recently able to share this experience with a group of my colleagues while on a professional retreat in the area. Trent Smith prepared a thoughtful and beautifully presented meal that was a perfect complement to our theme. This locally sourced, seasonal meal was reflective of the care and attention to detail that Chef Dayn and Trent give to each meal served. My colleagues were charmed and overwhelmed by the generous and kind service and delicious offerings.
