This recently renovated 1820s inn, which includes a brewery on site, 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 charming B&B is located in the heart of Rappahannock County, minutes away from marvelous hiking trails, Skyline Drive, and several wineries. The countryside is spectacular in the fall when the leaves are turning. We stayed there October 16-18, in the Sage Room. Innkeepers Kevin and Sherri are delightful - warm, helpful, and knowledgeable, but not at all intrusive. The decoration is lovely - warm, tasteful and elegant, not at all kitschy. Breakfast is terrific, featuring local products and creative twists on classic dishes. Excellent coffee too - a proprietary blend from a local beanery. I cannot recommend Hopkins Ordinary more enthusiastically!

We stayed at Hopkins Ordinary Wednesday October 14, 2015. After a couple hikes in Shenendoah National Park, we arrived about 45 minutes before check-in. The innkeepers Sherri and Kevin were in the garden and saw us arrive, and Sherri checked us in and offered fresh baked chocolate cookies. She gave us a map of the town, and walked around, visiting a new brewery (Pen Druid) and touring the Copper Fox distillery. We bought a very good pizza at Rudy's across from Hopkins, and ate it while sitting on our 2nd floor porch watching the Royals and drinking excellent beers from Hopkins onsite brewery. Next morning brought a tasty breakfast of omelets, scones, roasted potatoes, broiled grapefruit, and good coffee. Sherri shared her knowledge of hiking trails with the guests. We left satisfied that this B and B deserves a return visit. This is how a B & B should be.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were nice and the whole place very clean and comfortable. Sherri and Kevin were very friendly and hospitable. The onsite brewery is an added bonus that produces some very tasty creations. My wife and I will definitely be back in the near future.

My husband and I stayed at Hopkins for a quick July 4th getaway. From the minute you open the door to this beautiful oasis, you are made to feel like royalty! Sherri and Kevin are outstanding hosts! They are quick to fulfill any request and offer wonderful advice. The room we stayed in, Sage, was gorgeous! Clean, bright and comfortable! Finally, breakfast....... can I give 10 stars? It was the best! Fantastic waffles with blueberries and the best bacon we have ever eaten!!!! I'm not much of a hiker but if that's what it takes to stay here, bring on the most challenging hike!!! I'm there!!! Thanks for a fantastic stay!

Let me start by saying that this was my first bed and breakfast experience. My stay was booked as a romantic getaway for a new lady friend and I (might I add most incredible woman in the entire world) and I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew that I was totally into this beautiful woman and just wanted a pleasant atmosphere that would allow us to spend some uninterrupted time together getting to know each other a little better. Kevin and Sherri are absolutely wonderful. Their hospitality and genuinely kind nature makes you feel rich at home and as if you've known them for years. Some people are just that genuine. The inn is clean and has a great feel to it. Its been tastefully remodeled to keep the original charm. Breakfast was outstanding, the homemade cookies were literally the best I've ever had and we will be back. As for the lady friend, she's amazing. I'm the luckiest man in all the land to have found her. She also enjoyed the inn, so I will be taking her back as soon as we're able. If you're not sure about where to book your stay you can't go wrong with the Hopkins ordinary.

Kevin was a great host and had plenty of tips for fun things to do and places to eat in the area. The beer tasting was a great added perk. Breakfast was delicious and the service was excellent. We will be back!

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.
