This place is amazing. I'm a native of Hanover, and I've always wanted to see the inside of this house. Not only is the building itself absolutely gorgeous (and most of the furnishings are original), the service was spectacular. The innkeeper, Beverly, is friendly, pleasant, and an absolute delight. Plus, the gourmet breakfast she provides for the guests is one of the best meals I've ever had! I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It's comfortable, clean, beautiful, and the service is top-notch. Worth absolutely every penny!

Elegant B & B. Felt like I was in the age of Victorian grandeur.

4.8 on September 03, 2013

This B & B really transported us to another era. I kept expecting the butler to greet us whenever we returned from an outing. I was plesantly surpirsed at how quiet it was as the mansion sits on a main road. The breakfast far exceeded our expectations. We we expecting a simple egg or pancake dish and were awed by the level of the meal served. And the innkeeper was very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience living in the elegance of another time.

Our First Stay at a B & B.

Originally, my husband and I had planned to only spend one night at the Sheppard Mansion. But after meeting the staff who were so helpful and kind, and tasting the wonderful dishes prepared by the chef and other staff, we both fell in love with the mansion. The warmth, beauty and comfort of the Mansion was breathtaking and we had succumbed to it's spell. Both my husband and I spent an additional two nights at this magnifiscent home that felt like home. We plan to return in the future. Many thanks to the staff at Sheppard Mansion. -- Ted & Juliet H.

Lovely old mansion

4.4 on August 02, 2011

We had a very nice stay at the Sheppard Mansion, the dinner was wonderful and the new carriage market shop had a lot of nice foods and housewares. We requested a different room after the first night due to the "Horsehair" mattress in our original room, some people love it, we did not. Everything else was fantastic, including the breakfast in the morning. We would stay again.

Love this place!

Hanover is a quaint little town; the Mansion is breathtaking. I recommend this place to anyone who just needs a change of venue, or for the Civil War buffs. It rained for a good part of the weekend my husband and I were there; but there happened to be no other guests that weekend, so we were free to explore the place. The portraiture, the books, the artifacts were all very interesting.

January 2011 stay

We had a great experience and appreciated our morning conversations with the Proprietor. We definitely appreciated all she did for us to make our stay very enjoyable. We will definitely be back!

Our room was very spacious and had a nice bathroom. Breakfast the next morning was excellent. The highlight of our visit was dinner at the restaurant which we both agreed was one of the best meals we have experienced. The chef uses fresh local ingredients in unusual but outstanding combinations. Every one we encountered provided outstanding service. We would go back.

A wedding present

A friend gave us a wonderful wedding present- a B&B in my bride's home town!

The Experience of a Lifetime

5 on July 11, 2007

Although we only dined at the Mansion, the owner and her staff made our Anniversary one of the most memorable in our 35 years of marriage. Making special arrangements was no issue to them, and they all worked hard to impress us. The ambiance and food are second to none. We've traveled this country and dined in many fine dining establishments, but they all pale in comparison to the Sheppard Mansion. I will never be able to thank them enough, except to say, "We WILL be back".
