This B&B is located in a beautiful old brick "Queen Anne" Home. It's not a mansion but it is a very roomy house with lovely public areas to enjoy with others. There were fresh snacks and refreshments always available in the Sun Room. Our Room (Jewel in the Heart) was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We had a roomy, private bathroom with chandeliers and a walk-in shower. The Innkeepers, Helen and Bruce, were very hospitable and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Shining Dawn to others.

I was in Hanover for business. The B and B is quite charming, with many original architectural details in place. The hosts were quite helpful and amenable. I would stay there again.

This home was beautiful and very well maintained. Bruce was a wonderful host and breakfast was a work of art. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

My husband and another couple visited the Shining Dawn Inn this weekend. The house is beautiful with wonderful, old world details. The facilities are charming with a few modern touches. By far, the best part of our stay was the amazing breakfast. We were served poached pears and pancakes one morning and an amazing eggs the next. Our friend has a gluten allergy which was very kindly accommodated. During the evening, we played games in the Sunroom. I would highly recommend the Shining Dawn Inn. Andy & Meg
