“What a fabulous place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

I really dont want to share because I fear this special place will soon be permanently booked.
We agree with all the other reviews and cannot find the words to add anything else.

Room Tip: Dont think there is a bad room. However, the bathroom in the one bedroom Windsor suite overlooks a...

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.

Room Tip: If available one of the suites would be rewarding.

Less than 90 minutes away from Washington, DC, is a 'bed and breakfast' that serves up top award-winning meals from a widely-acclaimed international chef, has 5 star accommodations, and will cost you less than you may think. The location: Glen Gordon Manor. The owners of the property make you feel like family; by the second morning I was going though the kitchen like I owned the place, and was encouraged to do so. The meals were nothing short of spectacular; the service was on par, if not better, than many 5 star hotels/resorts that some of you may have experienced in the past. I reluctantly use the phrase 'bed and breakfast', because I think sometimes that phrase creates a vision of something less than spectacular, less than 5 star, less than perfect. Not in this case. From the iPad in our suite with surround sound Bose speakers, to the European toiletries, to the many custom requests Dayn (the owner) cheerfully satisfied (and then some), this is the weekend getaway many dream of, that may think cannot/doesn't exist....

All meals are made from scratch, and the food presentation in and of itself is worth the visit to Glen Gordon Manor. Breakfast that could easily go for $50.00-$60.00 a plate (Yes; it's that good) comes with your stay. Dayn's nephew Trent is also an incredible chef, and he helped to prepare some of our meals, as well. A tour of the home reveals alot of VA history. (Trent will tell you the story when you visit) Whether a weekend away from the kids (which is what my wife and I did this past weekend) or for some quality family time, look no further than Glen Gordon Manor.

After speaking to Dayn to make the reservation, I knew we were in for a treat. Never did we imagine it would be this good! From the moment we got there and Dayn's nephew Trent gave us the tour and a glass of champagne, we knew we picked the right place. Everything is top notch, and the attention to detail is amazing. Nancy has impeccable taste as she did most of the decor, and she is a wonderful hostess. Dayn and Trent are amazing chefs, love what they do, and it shows. It was some of the best cuisine we have ever had. We didnt leave the grounds because it is such a great place to stay. Everything said in all the other reviews is spot on. We felt right at home and are making plans to return this year.

Room Tip: Either suite at the cottage is a great choice.

What a wonderful, relaxing trip. In addition to charming hosts, the "Windsor Suite" was created to perfection - no detail was spared. The room is equipped with built-in speakers throughout (hooked to an iPad,) basic drinks and welcome "surprises," dimming lights, plush linens, and a stunning shower and bath overlooking the mountains. It was perfectly clean and cozy-- We never wanted to leave the room! Another great plus? The food was wonderful - far better than some of the nicest B&Bs we've been to. It was clear that this host is a true chef. The grounds themselves are beautiful and nicely equipped with outdoor seating, a pool, etc. The main house feels historic but beautifully renovated, with several cozy common areas for guests. The location itself is conveniently about 10-15 minutes off of route 66, tucked neatly in a mountainous area that feels so serene. The manor is surrounded by wineries, and we enjoyed several during our trip. Also not to be missed: dinner at the Inn at Little Washington, which is about a 10 minute drive. That said, the hosts offer a more affordable 5 course dinner that other guests raved about!

Room Tip: The privacy and comfort of the Windsor Suite was worth every dollar!

We chose Glen Gordon Manor after numerous calls trying to find an Inn that was child - friendly. We stumbled upon a treasure in the Virginia countryside. The Inn is beautiful with country charm amidst a luscious setting of rolling hills and pasture. It only got better. Dayn and Nancy were charming hosts making us feel that we were old friends coming in for a visit. Our suite was cozy and comfortable and impeccably clean. The bathtub overlooking the pasture was something out of a postcard. It only gets better. Dayn prepared a 5 - course dinner for us that was exceptional. My wife even got tears in her eyes as we were served such wonderful food, beautifully prepared and plated. We felt uniquely special. Then, when Dayn prepared a bed on the couch in the dining room for our 1 year - old son, sleeping in my wife’s arms, did I know that we were in the presence of special hosts and a special place. I can’t wait to return.

Charming and sophisticated, Glen Gordon Manor took our breath away the second we arrived. The warm fireplaces, luxurious baths and rich country decorations were perfectly balanced to create an air of romance that stayed with us the entire visit. Dayn and Nancy were the most gracious and welcoming of hosts and took care of everything we needed before we even asked. We will definitely be back to what has already become one of our favorite places in Virginia.
