Welcome to the Shining Dawn Bed and Breakfast Retreat Center. Enjoy a casual elegant stay in our magnificent, brick and brownstone Queen Anne B&B near the center of historic Hanover, Pennsylvania. Built in 1902, our home features numerous stained glass windows, in-laid oak floors and paneling, beamed ceilings, carved limestone and marble mantles, and a bright, airy ambiance.

History abounds here. Shining Dawn is located on the road upon which Union and Confederate Cavalries clashed during the Battle of Hanover. The Gettysburg National Military Park is only 15 miles to our west. The first capital of the USA, York, PA is only 20 miles to our east.

Hanover is convenient to the Washington DC beltway (1.5 hours) and the Baltimore beltway (1 hour), making our facility ideal for a weekend retreat from big-city living. Our gracious house and serene garden welcome individuals, couples, families and groups. Shining Dawn provides quiet, cozy, private spaces for individuals or large, open spaces for group events.

Please call us for special group rates!

We really enjoyed our stay here and hope to return some day soon. The house has beautiful antique furnishing and clocks, stained glass windows and architectural details. All of that with comfort too. We slept very well. The breakfasts were delicious. Every course was wonderful. We recommend Shining Dawn to any Bed and Breakfast Traveler going to or through the Hanover/Gettysburg area.

The Shining Dawn was absolutely wonderful from each room's historic charm, to the delicious breakfast and warm hospitality of Helen and Bruce. My husband and I would definitely stay there again, and I will recommend it to anyone looking for a warm, relaxing getaway.

Fantastic house with beautiful architecture and decor. Felt very homey except in a 100+ year old, 7500 sq ft house. Hosts were a wonderful and friendly couple.

A peaceful place to both meditate and enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside! The location in Hanover avoids the commercialism of Gettysburg and Lancaster County attractions, but is still close enough to enjoy them. Helen and Bruce are fantastic hosts!

Absolutely beautiful home! The interior has gorgeous woodwork and detailing throughout. The stained glass in the downstairs rooms and especially in the staircase creates a serene and inviting environment. Loved the sunroom! And the meditation room provides a unique space for those who want a time of quiet reflection. I would recommend the Shining Dawn Inn without hesitation.

This place is great. From the InnKeeper to the decor, to the energy of the place. We loved it.

The house and grounds were beautiful! Helen and Bruce were eager to make us comfortable and had lots of suggestions and brochures for things to do in the area. Helen's breakfast was first class! We wish we could have stayed longer to take full advantage of the house and the Hanover area.

It was lovely! The exterior and interior complimented the town and history perfectly-- yet it was fresh and welcoming also. Each room is decorated differently making each person's stay unique, special, and comfortable. This has been my first B&B. My experience here has forever changed my preference for lodging while traveling!
