The property is beautifully maintained and charming. The breakfasts are generously portioned and delicious. We stayed in the Oregano room -- the smallest of the rooms, but with a working fireplace (in the cold seasons) and a spacious shower with two heads and very hot water. The proprietors are friendly and helpful and brew some very delicious craft beers. Cute shops along the street, great hiking in the Shenandoahs nearby. Highly recommend for a weekend getaway, a very cozy rustic retreat.
We loved our stay at the Inn at Mount Vernon Farm. Came for 2 nights to get away from DC during the inauguration, and were not disappointed! Lovely rooms, a beautiful property, and great service. There is no cell service, so no Uber or Lyft, but we enjoyed the walk from the Inn to the shops and restaurants - about 20 minutes each way.
Everything about our stay at the Inn at Mount Vernon Farm was wonderful. From meeting Cliff, the owner, on the driveway, to the pot of coffee, bottle of wine, and jar of spiced nuts awaiting us in the cabin, our introduction to the place was gracious and welcoming. Manager Deb was a treasure trove of great information about where to go, what to do, and who to talk to. Her introductions made us feel like we had a group of friends in Sperryville by the end of the weekend. The cabin is spectacular and private, with a lovely fire laid for us each night. The breakfasts are delicious, and I even got Miss Lillian's recipe for granola. I can't imagine a more wonderful experience, or a better place to stay. There's great walking around the farm, and you're just across the creek from the Copper Fox Distillery. Downtown Sperryville, with its charming coffee shop, restaurants and galleries (and a terrific knitting shop!) is less than 5 minutes away by car. And all of this is under 2 hours (but a world away) from DC. We'll be back.
My husband and I stayed at Hopkins Ordinary while visiting family nearby. We loved the historic nature of the B & B and the way Sherri and Kevin preserved it's charm. Our accommodations were complete with cookies welcoming us on the mantle, a wood-burning fireplace, and a comfortable bed with nice linens and bedding. After checking in, we we went down to Ale Works, which is located on the lowest level of the historic home. It has a great selection of craft beers that are brewed right on the property. We thoroughly enjoyed a couple of coffee stouts and nice, casual conversation with Sherri and the other patrons. Breakfast on Sunday was a homemade treat. The coffee was brewed to perfection with beans from a local roaster - delicious! All in all, Hopkins Ordinary is a great find! We will definitely return on future visits!
We absolutely love the Inn at Mt. Vernon Farm. It's gorgeous, breakfast is superb, it's well situated, close to the national park for great hiking and good restaurants, brewery, distillery etc., and the inn keeper, Deb, is so nice and helpful. It is a great oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The Mt. Vernon Farm Inn B&B offers the very best of Virginia hospitality to those wishing to escape for a weekend of R&R. The rooms are beautifully decorated, service warm and friendly, and the breakfast is skillfully prepared, using local ingredients. In the colder months, your hosts will provide a warm fire to go along with an evening glass of wine. Perfect for couples.
We came to Hopkins Ordinary to get away from D.C. for the weekend and could not have picked a better spot. Sherri and Kevin were very welcoming, the room--one of the more modest options available--was fabulous. The porch seats, outdoor fire, and brewery really set the atmosphere. We came in part due to Sperryville's location in relation to Shenandoah national park but were pleasantly surprised by the food options available including the local Pen Druid brewery and Wasmund's distillery. Kevin is fabulous cook and Sherri was very helpful in providing directions and recommendations for the area.
We had a lovely time at The Inn. Deb and Cliff were fantastics hosts and gave us great recommendations on exploring Sperryville and the surrounding areas. We stayed in the Cabin room which was perfectly cozy and comfortable and we loved having access to a fireplace in our room. We will be back!
The Rosemary room at Hopkins Ordinary was beautiful and the perfect romantic escape for the first crisp fall weekend in November. It has a great fireplace, nice porch, and spacious bathroom. The hosts graciously shared a couple pints of their wonderful self-brewed craft beer upon arrival and the breakfast was really one of the best we've ever had at any restaurant around the world. The hosts also gave us excellent tips on how to have a successful hike up Old Rag (only 8 miles away).
Our stay at the Inn was perfect. The Inn is beautifully maintained and grand, but feels cozy and homey at the same time. The smell of baking was always in the air, along with the smell and sound of crackling wood fireplaces. The Innkeepers were extremely welcoming. And the homemade breakfasts were huge and delicious. The grounds are huge and perfect for long walks. We left feeling really pampered and rested.
This is our second stay at the Inn and it has become a family tradition. Deb made us feel welcome and comfortable starting with our phone discussions before we arrived. There were apple bars and nuts waiting in the inviting kitchen and wine bottles in our room (the cabin). Breakfast was delicious, elegant and cozy prepared and served in the downstairs dining room by Lillian and Deb. Thanks to everyone for suggesting a visit to the spotted/striped piglets and the hike to Mary's rock.
Great staff, excellent rooms,and plenty of good food to eat in the morning. Location good for day trip to Madison, Jefferson and Monroe historical houses. Check vineyard schedules if that's your thing before you go. Nice evening dinner at Tulu's in Washington (15 minute drive) and plenty of Virginia scenery to enjoy. Its a quiet getaway from the hectic day to day. Make sure you know the exact location as it's a bit tricky if you arrive in the evening.
Great sunsets and a professional bocci ball court! Near the park, so fantastic hikes. A fantastic par-3 9-hole golf course just down the road (Schoolhouse 9, designed by Mike McCartin) and great restaurants within a short drive. A small brewery and distillery is only a short walk over a swing bridge. The staff/owners are delightful.
The Inn at Mt. Vernon Farm in Sperrysville is the only place to stay! It is quiet and the views from the porches are amazing. Be sure to arrive in time to sit on one of the porches with a glass of wine and watch the sun set. Then have morning coffee on the porch before your scrumptious breakfast. The Inn is within walking distance of the Copper Fox distillery and the Pen Druid Brewery. "Downtown" Sperryville is just a short walk further. Deb and Andrew made us feel like we were visiting friends in their home.
We spent much to few but wonderful days in this beautiful inn. Our hosts were friendly, helpful and welcoming. We felt at home from the first minute. The rooms, the inn and the farm are spacious. Room furnishings are luxurious and breathe a somewhat nostalgious slightly british style. The surrounding farm is beautiful. peaceful, lush and green. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We enjoyed the stay, the hikes, the great afternoons on the porch beyond words. Highly recommended.
I was recently introduced to the word "glamping" (glamour - camping) and it seems an appropriate description of our Spring stay at Hopkins Ordinary and hike up Old Rag! We love this place, and will be back this fall! Beautiful comfortable rooms, with the warmth and character of history. A flight of Kevin's craft beers was a perfect beginning to our stay. Sherri's unique Hopkins' eggs were the perfect fortification for our Old Rag climb. And to top it all off, when an emergency closure of hiking trails became known, Sherri pitched in, getting us expert guidance and even lending us her own trail maps. Wonderful people, warm cozy place to stay, and delicious beer and breakfast! We'll be back!
This is a classic spot. The main house is beautifully restored to the last detail. The surrounding Blueridge are postcard worthy. The included breakfasts are from local meats and produce. The property is a short hike from the very interesting Pen Druid Brewery and Copper Fox Distillery. Good eating in Sperryville and gourmet eating a short drive to Washington,VA. This is a "go-back-to" place. Loved it.
A surprise birthday visit turned into one of the most romantic and fun get aways I've had in a long time. Deb and Lillian did everything they could for us and even more. As we turned up somewhat bedraggled from 6 hours spent at White Oak Canyon, Deb elegantly served the wine we had dropped off earlier and encouraged us to relax and enjoy our time together. Breakfast the next morning did not disappoint. The house is beautiful, and our stay in the Owner's Suite was great. We made use of it all - from the claw foot tub to the porches for reading. A truly wonderful place made even more so by great staff!
Stayed in the Cabin and had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. Everyone was friendly and the old farm house is charming. The breakfast in the mornings was worth the stay alone. We will come back again for sure.
We loved our stay at the Inn at Mount Vernon Farm. The Inn and property is so lovely and everything was just perfect. The staff was very warm and helpful, the room and bathroom was beautiful and breakfast was amazing. Very nice, but not pretentious. We will be back.
We love The Inn at Mount Vernon Farm! We try and visit quarterly for a great getaway. This time we got stuck in a rainstorm on our walk to town. Lillian rescued us in her car and drove us into town in time for dinner.
This was our second stay here with Kevin and Sherri and we hope the beginning of many more! Hopkins Ordinary ( make sure they explain the meaning behind name to you) is a wonderful journey back to small town America. The quaint rooms are very well kept and furnished with antique pieces that are sure to bring back memories of days gone by. Kevin and Sherri go out of their way to make you feel at home. You can tell that they love what they do! The breakfast is four star quisine with many of homemade fares that will delight your pallet! Also, the homemade cookies in the parlor are delicious! There is also a micro brewery in the lower lever of the B&B that Kevin opened a few years ago. He has some very tasty brews! They also have put in a beer garden nestled under a 200 year old Maple tree that provides shade for the area. I highly recommend that if you're heading their way, you stay here. You will not be disappointed!
My daughter and I stayed in The Fox's Lair room which was beautiful, outstandingly clean and quite roomy. The inn is beautiful and wonderfully maintained. The innkeeper, Cliff, and the housekeeper, Lillian, are extremely gracious and welcoming. We received a tour of the house and a glass of wine upon our arrival. Breakfast was bountiful,, and Lillian was very kind to accomodate our request for vegan breakfast items, and even made a new recipe for us.(We liked it...it's a keeper!) Highly recommended if you are in the Sperryville/Luray area. My daughter has requested a trip back for her birthday in November.
This property and the family that owns / operates the home are truly outstanding. The accommodations are comfortable, newly renovated and clean. The home is decorated with antiques and silver. It's a privilege to share the home of this multi generation family home.
