Hopkins Ordinary Bed & Breakfast
Table Of Contents
Relax on the porch after a day of hiking or wine tasting; sit in front of the fireplace in your room reading a good book and planning your next adventure. With two stories of wrap-around porches, seven fireplaces, views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah National Park, restaurants within walking distance, shops, galleries, wineries and antiques, Hopkins Ordinary is your retreat no matter the time of year. Hopkins Ordinary is a bed and breakfast inn located in the historic village of Sperryville, Virginia, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Hopkins Ordinary was built around 1820 by John Hopkins, who opened a roadside inn and tavern that also served as a stagecoach stop. In those days, it was known as an Ordinary, serving the "ordinary" needs of the traveler.
A delicious breakfast is served every morning and includes fresh-baked breads, home-made cheeses, and the freshest eggs, meat and produce grown and raised by our neighboring farms.
Hopkins Ordinary Bed and Breakfast is surrounded by wineries and farms in
Rappahannock County, Virginia, with the Skyline Drive and Luray Caverns nearby.
Breakfast at Hopkins Ordinary
Breakfast at Hopkins Ordinary is a time to indulge and fuel up for the day’s activities. We offer local, seasonal food whenever possible, including homemade cheese, fresh eggs and local meats. Breakfast includes homemade muffins, scones or bread (including our own challa for the French Toast), fresh fruits, and gourmet egg dishes such as frittatas, omelets, and our specialty, Eggs Hopkins. Locally-roasted coffee is served, along with a selection of teas and juices. Please tell us of any dietary restrictions and we will be happy to accommodate them.
Each cooking class is held on a Saturday. Class begins in the afternoon followed in the evening by the dinner you will learn to prepare. There is a wine tasting with heavy hors d'oeuvres on Friday evenings.
Wine Tasting and Discussion with Hors D'Oeuvres
After checking in to the B&B and settling into your room, come downstairs to sample a selection of wines and heavy hors d'oeuvres. Discussion will focus on how to pair food with different wines. Hopkins Ordinary co-proprietor Kevin will lead the discussion.
Start the day with a hot country breakfast. After breakfast there will be time to enjoy the area: go for a hike in Shenandoah National Park or visit the nearby Distillery, Coffee Roaster, or one of many local wineries.
