About The Inn

Gail and Ralph Olberg

Meet the Innkeepers

My husband, Ralph, and I relocated from Vermont to Virginia in 2007 to beautiful Caroline/Hanover Counties, Virginia where we purchased our home convenient to everything yet in a peaceful country setting which we named Shady Acres and in 2010 opened Shady Acres Bed and Breakfast. Our pets include our dog "Watson" and 72 +/- free range chickens (who all have names and come when called). We enjoy sitting on the front porch and around the outdoor fireplace in the evening with our guests, friends and neighbors and quiet strolls. 

We love meeting people from all over the world and sharing our hospitality and the comfort of our home.  

About Shady Acres

Shady Acres was constructed in 1988 on land near the Pamunkey and Mattaponi Indian Reservations. Wildlife sightings include hummingbirds, cardinals and bluebirds, deer, wild turkeys and bald eagles. We are located near Kings Dominion and The Meadow Event Park (the birthplace of the famous racehorse, Secretariat), and an easy commute to Richmond and the Richmond International Raceway, Minor League Baseball and numerous other attractions and things to do and see - including wineries, historic landmarks and museums, shopping and antique malls, botanical gardens, hot air balloon rides and Segway tours, to name a few.
