This recently renovated 1820s inn is on the National Register of Historic Places with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah National Park. Enjoy the views from the porch right outside your room, or nestle in front of the in-room fireplace after a day of winter hiking or horseback riding. Shops and restaurants are steps away. A delicious country breakfast, made from local ingredients, helps to fuel your day. The Garden Cottage sits behind the B&B by the river and provides a full kitchen and living room for those who want their own home in the country.
The Oregano Room on the second floor is a cozy room with a fireplace and a full-size bed. It has a private sunny bathroom with a shower made for two and a semi-private porch.
The Sage Room is a spacious second floor room with a fireplace, a private bath and a queen-size bed in the original 1820s-portion of the building. It has a large shower in the private bath and has a semi-private porch.
The Thyme Room has its own private balcony at the back of the house and a queen-size bed. This comfortable sunny room receives lots of morning light, and the private bathroom features a shower with a convenient bench.
The Lavender Room is a large room at the back of the house with a queen-size bed. Curl up in a comfy chair in front of the wood-burning stove. Soak in the roomy claw foot tub in the sunny bathroom, which also has a separate shower. A twin bed can be added to the room for an extra charge. A private breakfast can be served in the suite upon request.
The Rosemary Room is on the first floor at the back of the house. It has a fireplace, queen-size bed, lofty ceilings, and a large bathroom with a tub and shower combined. The private porch is right outside the door. The room is very private and handicap accessible.
The Garden Cottage sits behind the B&B, closer to the river and next to the kitchen garden. It has 2 bedrooms (one with a full-size bed and the other with one full-size and one twin bed), one bathroom with a large, double-headed shower, a full kitchen, a living room and a dining room. The wrap-around porches are great for relaxing. The cottage sleeps five, and pets and children are welcome.

Kevin and Sherri are wonderful caretakers of this historic property. Their gift of hospitality is such that you feel like you are being welcomed into the home of long-time friends. We were greeted with hot tea and home-made salted-oat cookies while siting by the wood stove in our cozy room. Kevin helped us plan the time between our arrival and dinner with suggestions that were within walking distance. In addition, he scheduled massage appointments for us the next day. The morning provided a hot bath in the Lavender Room claw-foot bathtub (while my towel was warming on the rack) followed by a hot cup of locally roasted coffee in the downstairs living room. Breakfast was an artful plate of fruit, fresh scones and a goat cheese, mushroom omelet. I look forward to returning to the Ordinary in a warmer season.There is a porch swing on the top veranda...

This was our third stay at Hopkins Ordinary, and, each time we drive away, we know we will return. The inn is beautifully appointed with antiques, both warm and comfortable. The rooms are bright, airy, and welcoming. The innkeepers tie everything together with their graciousness and generosity, so that, when we return, we feel like family coming home. We have enjoyed, along with friends, the wine and cooking weekends. Sherri and Kevin are amazing cooks/chefs! They provide interesting lessons, challenging yet do-able menus, and fabulous dishes expertly paired with great wines. Their breakfasts are exceptional, especially "Eggs Hopkins". Mmm! Hopkins Ordinary is the perfect choice for a weekend getaway, a special occasion, or more!

We are highly satisfied repeat customers. Sherri and Kevin are very friendly and welcoming hosts. They are happy to answer questions about the inn, the food, the various libations, the community and what one might do in the area; but they are not at all intrusive. Breakfasts are always creative and delicious -- high quality ingredients, carefully prepared.. We love the simple elegance of the décor.

We have stayed at Hopkins Ordinary twice now, for our fourth and fifth anniversaries. The house is beautiful and very well-kept. We stayed in the Rosemary Room both times - it has a fireplace (helpfully supplied with a Duraflame log and lighter), and it's a bit more private than a room upstairs would be. Sherri and Kevin are wonderful hosts and fantastic cooks. Sherri's scones are the best we've ever had, and Kevin's omelets are delicious and filling. Sherri and Kevin also know a lot about the trails and trail conditions in the area, so don't hesitate to ask them for recommendations if you want to hike. If you are in the area for fun, check out the Copper Fox Distillery down the road, too. The tour is really interesting. We've also enjoyed going out to dinner at the Thornton River Grille right across the street from the B&B (reservations recommended).

We stayed with Kevin and Sherry (the Innkeepers) for one night recently. They were more than accommodating, incredibly pleasant, and excellent cooks (great breakfast in the AM). The Inn itself is located in the heart of Sperryville, a great small town in central Virginia. It is walking distance from almost everything the town has to offer. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and well furnished with a nod to the history of the Inn. Highly recommend a stay here - great value for an excellent and classic B&B.
