The beauty of the landscape and the surrounding mountains have long been a draw for tourists—even Jack and Jackie Kennedy vacationed here as First Family. Surrounded by stunning vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the forty-five-acre grounds here are worthy of a visit all by themselves. Thoroughbreds graze in pastures beside an orchard of fruit trees while chickens roam unmolested by a nearby row of beehives and two centuries-old beech trees sit resolutely in the front yard like guardians of the estate.
Inside, owner Nancy Moon Smith has decorated with paintings and pieces inspired by classic English estates and foraged from area antique shops.
The warmth of hospitality continues even as her husband Dayn Smith dons his chef whites. A celebrated executive chef and owner of three top restaurants in Puerto Rico, today Smith is going casual to lead a cooking class for four in the open sunlit kitchen of Glen Gordon Manor. Also served is an exquisite demitasse cup of sunchoke and cauliflower soup topped with a tasty latte-like foam and a plate of rich gamey squab drizzled in wild mushroom sauce.
The next morning, Dayn personally makes sure I get my coffee and a melt-in-my-mouth blueberry scone. Share this article via. Subscribe to The Local Palate newsletter. Get the latest from the Local Palate, straight to your inbox.
