We loved our one night stay at Hopkins. Kevin and Sherri are very friendly, and you're greeted with a complimentary beverage of your choice (not to mention fresh-baked cookies!). We also paid a little extra for some gourmet chocolates and wine to be waiting for us upon arrival. We enjoyed these while playing Scrabble, and before a quiet afternoon walk over to the nearby art gallery and Copper Fox whiskey distillery.
Hopkins is centrally located in the heart of Sperryville. It's an easy ten minute walk to the aforementioned gallery and distillery. There are several more shops and businesses surrounding the B&B on Main Street, including a gorgeous converted church that hosts yoga lessons right across the street (we wanted to go, but didn't have the time - will definitely seek it out upon our next visit).
Before dinner we took advantage of the Rosemary Room's private deck. It has two rocking chairs and a small table, which was perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sun set. The area is quiet, peaceful, and low traffic. Hopkins' atmosphere does a fantastic job of capitalizing on those traits! After dinner we came back, made a fire (they provide you with a Duraflame log and lighter) and enjoyed the much-needed warmth on an otherwise cold and frigid night. The beds are lush and we slept well as a result!
Breakfast was awesome. Fresh fruit, juice, coffee, pumpkin scones, and three different quiches. Seating in the breakfast room is communal. There are two tables: one large, and one for seating just four people. I'm not a fan of communal seating (I find it a bit awkward in most settings, since it forces conversation where it isn't always meant to naturally occur) but this wasn't a deal breaker. The dining area is a moderate size, so I can understand the necessity of a few large tables as opposed to several small ones.
Before we left, Kevin and Sherri gave us some enthusiastic recommendations on local vineyards and provided us with a promotional card they had to get us into Linden Vineyards's beautiful terrace (it's members only on the weekends). Lovely hosts, and would love to go back again - hopefully for more than just a night's getaway!
