My boyfriend--er, I mean fiance--made our reservations to stay at the Hopkins Ordinary the weekend we got engaged (in nearby Shenandoah National Park). It was a delightful place made even more special by the attention to detail from the innkeepers, Kevin and Sherry. They welcomed us with (seemingly bottomless) drinks on the porch, and we stayed in the Sage room. The house was in incredible condition for its age, decorated tastefully but not too much floral (a definite plus as far as my partner and I are concerned), and the bathroom was all completely modern, clean and updated. Breakfast was a delicious homemade trio of quiches with various fresh ingredients from the garden, as well as fruit, homemade scones, and peach-lavender jam. We enjoyed the porches (upstairs and down) most of all, and my apologies to the other guests there that weekend; we did hog to porch swing for a lot of our waking hours (!). The only thing that could be better was the bed; it was quite firm and my fiance didn't sleep well (I, on the other hand, would be comfortable sleeping on a wood floor...). Great inn with very convenient access to Shenandoah National Park (Thornton Gap entrance is closest, but Sperryville is also on way to the Old Rag parking lot). Highly recommend to couples especially. We will definitely be back!
