Shady Acres Bed and Breakfast

Welcome to Shady Acres Bed and Breakfast. We are a country B&B located in the peaceful countryside of Hanover, Virginia where we focus on your comfort and relaxation with country hospitality and modern luxury amenities.

Conveniently located just minutes off I-95 north of Richmond and only 90 miles south of Washington, DC; Shady Acres makes the perfect destination for an elopement wedding destination, a romantic weekend escape, or a mini-vacation.

We proudly receive 5 star guest reviews since opening our doors in 2010 and have been featured in Destination Weddings Magazine and selected by two Travel Writers as one of their favorite B&B’s. Our guests visit from all corners of the U.S. from Texas, Washington State, Vermont, Florida, and the countries of Canada, Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, Australia, France and England.

We always have a list of local restaurants, entertainment and events, or relax and do nothing at all, hang-out in the hammock, around the fire ring, on the front porch, or go for a leisurely stroll.

Since Shady Acres is one of few unique B&B's who have an on-site Marriage Officiate; we are often the chosen destination for elopements, as well as, mini-weddings and marriage proposals. Enjoy a romantic birthday, anniversary, or just a quiet get-away, mini-vacation or longer extended vacation. We offer discounts for stays of 4 or more nights. Shady Acres is a nice gift idea for honey-moons and holiday get-aways such as Mother's, Fathers & Valentine Day. You won't want to miss Saint Patricks Day at Shady Acres, with Patty's Punch and green eggs & ham. And everyone loves to visit Shady Acres during the month of April when baby chicks hatch and are named by our guests.

Guest Reviews

Gail Olberg was an absolutely ideal officiant! She was professional, courteous, and we actually learned a lot from her regarding wedding ceremonies in general. She was willing to work with our requests and needs. At first, we weren't going to do a rehearsal and ended up deciding to do one last minute, and she was happy to oblige us by attending. During the rehearsal, she was incredibly helpful in aiding our group through the motions in a calm and reassuring manner. On top of that, we were happy to see that she was able to provide a range of options for the ceremony.

Thank you so much. We are still beaming from how great our day was and a lot of it was thanks to you and your husband. Thanks again for everything and we hope to see you guys again soon!   Brittany and Ben  6/5/2017
