Shady Acres Bed and Breakfast

Welcome to Shady Acres Bed and Breakfast. We are a country B&B focusing on your comfort and relaxation located in the peaceful countryside of Hanover, Virginia.

Located just minutes off I-95 north of Richmond and only 90 miles south of Washington, DC; Shady Acres makes the perfect destination for a one night stop-over as you travel, a wedding-night retreat, 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, propose marriage, celebrate that special occasion or take in some local events. And since Shady Acres is one of few unique B&B's who have an on-site Marriage Officiate, we are often selected as an elopement and wedding-night destination; proudly receiving 5 star guest reviews since opening our doors in 2010.

Shady Acres’ convenient location is close enough to everything, yet just far enough away from it all to offer well deserved me-time as you relax in the arms of Mother Nature and away from all the business of everyday life. 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…for ideas of additional things to see and do ...Visit our Attractions and Events tabs for a list of nearby attractions and local monthly events. It’s all only minutes from your front door at Shady Acres Bed and Breakfast.
