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.

Whether we were out for the day biking or hiking, my husband I enjoyed returning to the Inn, relaxing on the front porch swing with a cold gin and tonic and watching the world go by. A relaxing place where Sherri and Kevin magically appear when you need a hand with something or a restaurant suggestion.

Bliss. The most wonderful relaxing weekend in the charming Hopkins Ordinary Bed and Breakfast. Lovely room, tastefully restored, immaculate with access to the upper porch for a relaxing afternoon with a glass of wine. And cookies, homemade and divine. Breakfast first morning fantastic french toast, bacon and fruit...fresh peaches. Second morning buttery scones to make the Queen smile with fresh home made jam, lovely frittatas with locally grown vegetables and fresh cheeses and the glorious fruit. Kevin and Sherri, the innkeepers, are gracious and diligent hosts. I am truly refreshed after a pampered weekend.

I had seen this place before and had long thought of staying here before my wife and I came for two nights. Sperryville is a beautiful town with two excellent restaurants and plenty of apples and handicrafts. We saw a wide variety of birds, including an indigo bunting, on a walk before breakfast. Sperryville also provides excellent access to the Shenandoah National Park, especially the popular trailheads for White Oak Canyon and Old Rag Mountain. Sherri and Kevin are friendly, knowledgable and accommodating.

My husband and I spent a lovely weekend in Sperryville in Early May to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary and stayed at Hopkins Ordinary. Everything about this B&B was outstanding. The Rosemary Room with its private porch was perfect. Kevin and Sherri had excellent and helpful suggestions and Kevin's breakfasts were scrumptious! We can't wait to go back.

We stayed at Hopkins Ordinary for two nights and loved our stay. The home itself is beautifully restored - high ceilings and original features. Kevin and Sherri were very knowledgeable about the area, particularly hiking and winery recommendations. The breakfast was delicious both days and the service was impeccable without being obtrusive. One example I'll give is that we left a bottle of rose wine in our room when we went out for the day and we returned to a note that the owners moved the wine to their fridge to chill. Just very thoughtful. We found Hopkins Ordinary during a search for local places to stay near the Inn at Little Washington which was only a 10 minute drive down the road. Would definitely return!

We enjoyed our stay at Hopkins Ordinary so much last year that we retuned again this year for a longer stay. Sherri and Kevin are wonderful hosts, and they are a large part of what makes this place so special. Simply put, they do not overlook any detail. The rooms are beautifully appointed and sparkling clean; you are greeted with a complimentary glass of wine and fresh baked cookies; their breakfasts are delicious and made from scratch (including their jams). The two of them are also invested in making sure you get exactly what you want out of your day. Each morning, Sherri would ask us what we were doing and supplement our plans with suggestions and tips. She and Kevin would then print us out directions, lend up waterproof maps (for hiking), and make us reservations at great restaurants. The final point that makes this place so wonderful is its location. It is in the middle of a lush rural valley, but it is also just steps from a couple of wonderful restaurants and shops. We found the combination of remoteness and walkability perfect.

We had planned to climb old rag, but the weather on the mountain didn't agree. Nevertheless, we were given some excellent recommendations on what to do and where to go. Our hots were very accommodating and so kind. They cooked an excellent breakfast, even though they didn't have to, since they'd already prepared us scones for an early trip the next day, which never worked out. We can't wait to go back and try again.

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!
