By the Glass: The Goodstone Inn & Estate


Hello Friends,

I recently had the pleasure of sitting on the selection committee for Loudoun County’s “Destination Restaurants” program. This program is run by The Loudoun Convention and Visitors Center. Participating restaurants were evaluated on specific criteria for consideration as an official Loudoun County Destination. This assignment gave me a chance to visit a few establishments I had already dined at to reconfirm that they were still doing things right. It also gave me the opportunity to explore some dining destinations I had not previously been to. One of those destinations was The Goodstone Inn and Estate.

The Goodstone Inn's Restaurant


The Goodstone Inn and Estate is located in Middleburg, Virginia, a stone’s throw away from downtown Middleburg. The Goodstone Inn and Estate is situated on 256 acres of rolling countryside, offering a relaxed atmosphere and picturesque country views. The Goodstone Inn and Estate is an ideal location for fine dining and/or an overnight stay, especially if you plan on making a weekend out of visiting the nearby wineries and attractions.

Beautiful Interior


The Goodstone Inn and Estate’s restaurant is housed in a 1930’s circa carriage house with picture windows that overlook Goose Creek. We visited the restaurant on a Sunday afternoon for their three-course Sunday brunch. The meal was absolutely delicious and the service was great. Executive Chef William Walden is doing good things in the kitchen and I personally like the focus they place on local foods with their farm-to-table push. The restaurant’s wine list features over 250 labels with 23 Virginia wines, of which 10 are from Loudoun County producers. Therefore, you can go local in the plate and in the glass. The Goodstone Inn and Estate makes this week’s “By the Glass” feature because you can get local wine by the bottle, even half bottle, and by the glass. I hope that you will visit soon - you will not be disappointed.
