Experience The Hope & Glory Inn and Vineyard

An Award-Winning Irvington Hotel in Virginia’s Northern Neck

The Hope and Glory Inn is one of this country’s most highly acclaimed and extraordinary inns. Once an elite boarding school in 1890, Hope and Glory Inn has since graduated into a stylish hotel in Irvington within Virginia’s Northern Neck peninsula. The Hope and Glory Inn is different from other Irvington bed and breakfasts in a charming Chesapeake Bay town (population 415), pleasing amenities and services, and our dog-friendly vineyard, Dog & Oyster Vineyard, just 3/10 of a mile bike ride from the hotel.

The Hope & Glory Inn experience features six garden cottages, one suite, three rooms, two small rooms. Private cruises aboard the owner’s downeast boat; a seductive swimming pool; an onsite fine dining restaurant the “Dining Hall”; en plein air fountain patio dining aptly named Hooky; a charming bar; its own vineyard, The Dog and Oyster, within walking distance; and, a downeast boat for cruising. Paddleboarding and sailing lessons are available close by.
