Wonderful Stay

5 on September 12, 2017

My husband and I decided on a last minute weekend getaway. We chose to stay at Hopkins Ordinary because of the good reviews. This inn will not disappoint. Kevin and Sherry were gracious hosts. From the delicious breakfast, to the ale house downstairs, to the the great hike suggestions, we thoroughly enjoyed out stay.


Great beer and better breakfast!

Perfect spot for a hiking weekend in the mountains, with plenty of time to relax with some beer, pizza from the local (and awesome!) shop, and friendly hosts. They make a great healthy pre-hike breakfast and will give you plenty of recommendations for hikes and things to do. Be sure to spend time in the beer garden or on your personal porch!


Great B&B convenient to DC and the Shenandoah Mountains

We recently spent the weekend at Hopkins Ordinary and were not disappointed. Kevin and Sherri were very nice and accommodating, there for whatever you needed but gave you your space to enjoy yourselves. The room was comfortable and each day there were delicious cookies waiting for you. There is an on-site brewery which they operate filled with a number of good brews. Breakfast each morning was delicious. We enjoyed the restaurants in Sperryville, and found it a great location to explore VA wine country and the mountains. Looking forward to our next visit.


Perfect spot!!

My husband and I stayed in the cottage the night after our wedding. We got there later in the evening and Kevin and Sherri had left us a personalized note, along with some DELICIOUS chocolate chip cookies. The cottage was in excellent condition, with any amenity you might need available! Breakfast the next morning was absolutely divine! Everything from the coffee to the grapefruit to the scones to the eggs benedict was perfect. Kevin and Sherri delivered it to us on the porch of the cottage, making for the perfect breakfast spot. The entire stay was short, but a fabulous one and I cannot recommend this place enough! Kevin and Sherri were wonderful hosts who clearly pay close attention to the small details, which helps make a night away from home feel like home away from home.


Perfect Weekend Getaway!

5 on March 14, 2017

I was looking for a cozy mid-winter getaway for my boyfriend and I after he took the bar exam; after 5 months of nonstop studying, I wanted something remote where we could be outdoors and not in front of a computer screen (or any other kind of screen!). The Hopkins Ordinary was absolutely perfect. We arrived late Friday night, and the owners and innkeepers, Sherry and Kevin, were kind enough to accommodate our late arrival by leaving a welcome note with the key to our room. We went upstairs to our room and immediately appreciated the size of the room and bed, how absolutely cozy it was, and how nice it was! I've stayed in a few B&Bs, and this one easily took first place. We woke Saturday, got a cup of coffee from the sideboard and took it to our bedroom balcony, where we enjoyed the crisp morning. We had an absolutely amazing breakfast (the Eggs Hopkins) before leaving to go hike the Little Devil Stairs trail in the Shenandoah National Park - only about ten minute drive away. When we got back from our hike, we showered and napped before enjoying the alehouse in the basement. We sampled all of the brews, which were delicious, and enjoyed chatting with everyone there. Dinner was spent in a nearby pub, about a ten minute drive away, and then back to our cozy room and bed; the bedroom had a fireplace, which was absolutely perfect, as it was a stormy evening with the wind howling. The next morning, we enjoyed the most delicious sweet potato pancakes before getting on the road back home. All in all, it was the most perfect weekend getaway, and we have every intention of another visit in the future. The inn was amazing, and made the weekend perfect! Thank you, Sherri and Kevin!


Fabulous stay

I just spent a night at Hopkins in the Lavendar room. It is very spacious, and extremely comfortable. Kevin and Sherrie are great hosts, extremely helpful and very friendly. The breakfast was terrific and the brew pub was super fun; great beer and enjoyable company. I highly recommend Hopkins Clay


Lovely country retreat with superb amenities

5 on February 12, 2017

The property is beautifully maintained and charming. The breakfasts are generously portioned and delicious. We stayed in the Oregano room -- the smallest of the rooms, but with a working fireplace (in the cold seasons) and a spacious shower with two heads and very hot water. The proprietors are friendly and helpful and brew some very delicious craft beers. Cute shops along the street, great hiking in the Shenandoahs nearby. Highly recommend for a weekend getaway, a very cozy rustic retreat.


Historic B & B with Charm - A GREAT Find!

5 on February 04, 2017

My husband and I stayed at Hopkins Ordinary while visiting family nearby. We loved the historic nature of the B & B and the way Sherri and Kevin preserved it's charm. Our accommodations were complete with cookies welcoming us on the mantle, a wood-burning fireplace, and a comfortable bed with nice linens and bedding. After checking in, we we went down to Ale Works, which is located on the lowest level of the historic home. It has a great selection of craft beers that are brewed right on the property. We thoroughly enjoyed a couple of coffee stouts and nice, casual conversation with Sherri and the other patrons. Breakfast on Sunday was a homemade treat. The coffee was brewed to perfection with beans from a local roaster - delicious! All in all, Hopkins Ordinary is a great find! We will definitely return on future visits!


Great Escape

5 on January 04, 2017

We came to Hopkins Ordinary to get away from D.C. for the weekend and could not have picked a better spot. Sherri and Kevin were very welcoming, the room--one of the more modest options available--was fabulous. The porch seats, outdoor fire, and brewery really set the atmosphere. We came in part due to Sperryville's location in relation to Shenandoah national park but were pleasantly surprised by the food options available including the local Pen Druid brewery and Wasmund's distillery. Kevin is fabulous cook and Sherri was very helpful in providing directions and recommendations for the area.

The Rosemary room at Hopkins Ordinary was beautiful and the perfect romantic escape for the first crisp fall weekend in November. It has a great fireplace, nice porch, and spacious bathroom. The hosts graciously shared a couple pints of their wonderful self-brewed craft beer upon arrival and the breakfast was really one of the best we've ever had at any restaurant around the world. The hosts also gave us excellent tips on how to have a successful hike up Old Rag (only 8 miles away).
