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.

This was our second time to stay here, and we have already planned our third visit. Kevin and Sherri are incredible hosts. They offer a wealth of information about the area, what to do, how to get there, etc. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, and have all the amenities needed. We have stayed in the Lavender Room which is awesome with a wood burning stove. We have also stayed in the Oregano Room which is smaller, but just as nice, and has a fireplace. We highly recommend this B&B, especially if you like a quiet location close to wineries, hiking, and fun drives with beautiful scenery any time of the year.

We absolutely loved it here. The innkeepers were ready, welcoming, and hospitable. They provided helpful suggestions to supplement the itinerary we had planned. Even though the place was almost full, we had plenty of privacy.

We went to Hopkins for New Year's Eve and had a great time. This trip was our third stay, and we left looking forward to coming back many more times. The place looked great for the holidays, and the whole little town was in the spirit. Kevin gave us perfect and easy instructions on the fireplace, and amid the terrific breakfast they made the next morning, Sherri recommended a great hike. What a way to start the year!

This was a wonderful escape from the city. They were incredibly nice, the rooms were cozy, and we felt right at home. A great place to stay.

Our 3rd time staying here for a hiking and biking getaway. Terrific inn keepers. Great personal attentiveness yet not overbearing. Outstanding location, activity recommendations, breakfast, and now beer. Give Hopkins a try it and you'll be coming back again.

We have stayed at Hopkins Ordinary three times and it only gets better and better. Sherri and Kevin always make us feel right at home. And to make things even better, they are now brewing their own small batches of beer on the premises. The rooms are great, very clean and cozy. Breakfast is always wonderful as well. We will definitely return in the future. And, Sperryville is a sweet little town to visit. A great place to go to get away from the rat race.

My husband, 3 month old son and I stayed in the Cottage House at Hopkins Ordinary the first weekend of December. We loved the privacy and the ability to drink coffee and use the kitchen in our cottage. The cottage was inviting and I was so glad to be able to look out the window and see the garden and the Thornton River. It was quiet, peaceful, clean, and Kevin and Sherri were so welcoming and hospitable. We will definitely be back! We were glad to be there on the weekend of the local goods craft fair and parade in Little Washington. We had dinner and brunch at Thornton River Grille and took our baby into Shenandoah National Park hiking for his first time! What a great weekend--glad to get away from Richmond for the weekend and take a deep breath in Rappahannock. The water, incidentally, out of the faucet was really good.

We just spend 3 days at Hopkins Ordinary. Sherri and Kevin are welcoming hosts who care that their guests enjoy the Inn and their vacation in the Shenandoah Mountains. First, the Inn. It is lovely, clean, warm, inviting. Our room had a claw foot tub, wood burning stove and comfy queen sized bed. The room opened onto the second story wrap-around porch. When we arrived, Sherri greeted us, showed us our room, gave us home made (by Kevin) ginger cookies. We were hurrying to hike Old Rag, and she gave us directions and tips. Breakfast the next morning was grilled grapefruit, mushroom, spinach and cheese omelet, homemade muffins, 5 types of juice, coffee.... I could go on and on. I've stayed in many B&Bs, and Hopkins Ordinary is the best I've experienced. We plan to visit a few times a year.

The Innkeepers were warm and friendly and very knowledgeable about hiking. The breakfasts were delicious. The cookies were yummy after a day of hiking and the complimentary beverages was the icing on the cake. I would highly recommend Hopkins Ordinary to friends and family.
