The Hope and Glory Inn

Formerly an old schoolhouse with two front doors—one for boys, one for girls—The Hope and Glory Inn has moved to the head of the class as what Travel + Leisure is calling one of the "30 Great Inns of the US."  If you’re allergic to lace doilies like poshbrood, this eccentric getaway in Virginia’s Northern Neck is for you.

The main building houses seven guest rooms, a breakfast room, and a living room decorated with folk art and columns entwined with grapevines and lights. Behind the Inn are six cottages with private patios. Poshbrood stayed in "Schoolroom 5", a suite with a king bed, queen sleeper sofa, and private bath with shower and tub. 

After exploring Irvington’s shops and enjoying the Inn’s beautiful grounds, we had dinner at the cool and delicious Nate’s Trick Dog Café, which is right around the corner.  The next morning, the fam had an amazing Hope & Glory Inn communal Southern breakfast where the guests and innkeepers were engaged with the kids, we barely had to mind them. 

Doubles from $175, cottages $240 to $430. Two- and three-bedroom”tents” at Vineyard Grove are available for larger groups.  Families with young children welcome in cottages and tents. Available activities and amenities include: sailing, babysitting services, kayaking, a pool, biking, cocktail cruises and spa services.  Pets welcome with an additional fee.
