“Best B&B!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

My family -- husband and I and our girls -- stayed in the cottage at Hopkins Ordinary last weekend, and what a wonderful weekend it was! The cottage is totally charming, with plenty of room AND fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies -- such a nice touch. Kevin and Sherri are terrific hosts, and thanks to their gracious sharing of information and directions we learned that there is so much to do in Sperryville -- this inn is walking distance from Copper Fox distillery (yummy local whiskey maker), Thornton River Grill (good restaurant), as well as a lovely art gallery. Lots of good hiking nearby, too. You have GOT to have their signature morning fare, "Eggs Hopkins." It is about the best breakfast I've ever had! We need to come back in the fall to see the leaves, which Sherri said are really gorgeous on nearby Skyline Drive. Next time, just me and my husband! :)

My husband and I just returned from our 2nd stay at Hopkins Ordinary and are already plotting our 3rd trip. The inn is charming and perfectly located near great hiking in Shenandoah NP and several wineries. On top of all that, Kevin and Sherri have really gone above beyond to make our weekends in Sperryville wonderful. The day starts with a delicious breakfast, the perfect fuel for one of the many nearby hikes that Sherri and Kevin can recommend. Need a map? Forget your trekking poles? No worries, Kevin and Sherri are happy to lend you theirs. After a full day of hiking and wine tasting we enjoyed relaxing by the fire in our large and very comfortable room. Fortunately, we brought home some of their special locally roasted coffee blend to hold us over until we can return. - Kate & Ryan

Excellent spot for your wedding night!! Kevin was so kind to upgrade our reservations to the Lavender Room, where we shared a glass of wine by the fire. He was such a gracious host, suggesting places for dinner and taking pics in the morning. We shall return!!

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!!

We have stayed at Hopkins Ordinary twice now, for our fourth and fifth anniversaries. The house is beautiful and very well-kept. We stayed in the Rosemary Room both times - it has a fireplace (helpfully supplied with a Duraflame log and lighter), and it's a bit more private than a room upstairs would be. Sherri and Kevin are wonderful hosts and fantastic cooks. Sherri's scones are the best we've ever had, and Kevin's omelets are delicious and filling. Sherri and Kevin also know a lot about the trails and trail conditions in the area, so don't hesitate to ask them for recommendations if you want to hike.

If you are in the area for fun, check out the Copper Fox Distillery down the road, too. The tour is really interesting. We've also enjoyed going out to dinner at the Thornton River Grille right across the street from the B&B (reservations recommended).

Room Tip: Rosemary Room is a little more private and has a fireplace. I think it is also ADA-compliant.

We stayed at Hopkins Ordinary as part of a weekend visit to The Inn at Little Washington because it is so close and reasonably priced. We loved staying here. It was comfortable, has all the amenities you need, clean, quiet, and cozy. The owners are friendly and unobtrusive. Plus, the food was delicious. Woke up to the smell of scones baking! We will definitely visit again.
