Glen Gordon Manor - Huntly, Va.
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 the Shenandoah National Park from 45 acres of pasture, lawns, gardens and parkland situated below the Sky Line Drive. 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. It’s four guest suites echo the warm radiance. Luxuriously appointed Glencroft Cottage Suites and Glen Gordon Manor’s newly converted ‘West Wing’ (coming in late June 2014) lend further hospitality, along with a sparkling pool, and the finely crafted cuisine offered at the Houndstooth restaurant.
