Shady Acres Bed and Breakfast

Welcome to Shady Acres Bed and Breakfast. We are a country B&B in Hanover, Virginia, and the perfect destination for a romantic weekend escape or a week long mini-vacation.

Our guests purposely seek us out to just get away from it all and relax, get a little quiet time, propose marriage, celebrate that special occasion or take in some local events.

Shady Acres’ convenient location is close enough to everything, yet just far enough away from it all to give yourself a little well deserved me-time as you relax in the arms of Mother Nature and away from all the business of everyday life.

Sure our guests are always welcome to just relax and do nothing at all, hang-out in the hammock, around the fire ring, on the front porch, go for a leisurely stroll or ride a bike…But there’s also an abundance of things to see and do during your stay. Visit our Attractions tab for an example of nearby attractions. And our Events tab with a list of local monthly events. It’s all only minutes from your front door at Shady Acres Bed and Breakfast.

  • Extended length king beds…for the comfort of our taller guests

Guest Reviews

Gail and Ralph provide a haven of peace and serenity in a world that is 24/7. Here is a place you can breathe the country air, have farm fresh eggs after a refreshing and deeply relaxing slumber on a sleep numbered bed. Scientists do acknowledge a correlation between natural light and our immune system. When was the last time you just sat and took in the sounds of the country? Shady Acres is just the sort of place to relax and unwind.

It is always sad when it is time to go home after a wonderful vacation but felt especially so when leaving this place. Our hosts were absolutely wonderful in every way they could be. Our breakfasts were delicious. Our room was clean and comfortable. Our bed especially was very comfortable, sheets were clean, and bathroom immaculate. I felt I had plenty of storage space for being there for four days along with my fiancé. Not to mention the wonderful seclusion from the city.

"Gail assisted us with choosing what kind of ceremony we wanted, and helped reassure us when we weren't certain about what we were doing! She was easy to work with, professional, and friendly. "
