I booked the Hopkins Ordinary for New Year's Eve to get away from DC. The drive, while not short, was well worth the effort.
The owners/hosts were gracious, kind and knowledgeable. They were engaging but careful not to intrude. They brought me tea to my room, lit a fire in the fireplace and had me try some seriously delicious home made cookies.
When I woke up the following morning, there was a great breakfast with three different varieties of bacon. Following my meal, the owners helped me book a massage and directed me to Old Rag, a near by mountain where I was able to take a wonderful and challenging 3 hour hike.
The Hopkins Ordinary will not change your life but it will certainly make it enjoyable while you're there. This place gets my overwhelming approval.
