Sperryville isn't Times Square, but it was a great place for my wife and I (and another couple) to spend our New Year's Eve this year. The "Oridinary" is charming and inviting .... country comfortable, and clean as a whistle. As other reviewers have commented, Kevin and Sherri are delightful, generous hosts, and genuinely nice folks. Be sure to take time to talk with them .... the story of their journey to becoming "innkeepers" is fascinating. We stayed in the Garden Cottage, which is a great deal .... and even better if you're splitting the cost with another couple. Total privacy when you want it, and a tremendous breakfast delivered to and served in your own dining room in the morning. Each afternoon of our stay, when we returned from our day's activities, we were delighted to discover freshly baked cookies left in our kitchen. We raved about them to Sherri (and, unprompted, she later emailed us the recipes!!) The Ordinary is itself worth the trip to Sperryville, but there's so much more to be experienced while you're there. Hikers will love the dozens of local hiking trails in the Shenandoah National Park, anglers will enjoy pursuing wild brook trout in the Park's many fine streams, and cyclists can stretch their muscles on the Skyline Drive (5 miles from the Ordinary). Surprisingly fine dining is available as close as across the street at the "Thornton River Grill," just up the road at the "Inn at Little Washington," or at "The Griffin Inn" in Flint Hill (11 miles away). Sperryville's not that far away!! Don't miss this gem!!
