Frederick On The Road: Sperryville, VA
It all started with our one-year wedding trip for us, now we (Alanna and Cory) go back once or twice a year to relax and getaway for a quick re-charge.
Just under two hours from our homebase in Frederick, its the perfect overnight trip. What we like to do is take off on a Friday and head out around 10am to make it down for lunch around noon. While there are plenty of spots to stop, sip and eat, we save that for the trip back. When we get down at noon, we always drop the bags at our favorite bed & breakfast of all time - 'Hopkins Ordinary'. and walk striaght over to lunch at Headmasters Pub. Yes walk. Sperryville is super small (only 228 people live in sperryville) however its mighty in what it provides.

'3 Blacksmiths' (3 Starred Michelin Rest. - If you're thinking of checking it out, take note they are booking about 8 months out.)

Another great thing about Hopkins Ordinary, no tv's in the bedroom and the service is spotty. Great way to disconnect and be present : )
