Stately home with character and attention to detail

We stayed while there was renovation being done. Absolutely every effort was made so that this did not negatively impact our stay. Beverly greeted us, gave us a tour and then took us to our suite. Mrs. Sheppard had quite the comfy boudoir and the updates have only added to the comfort factor. After a long day hiking Gettysburg Battlefield we were ready to relax. Laying back on the bed was like laying on a cloud - and the pillows? A perfect match of soft and support. My old bones appreciated the deep soaking tub and lovely toiletries. A great sleep followed by a trio of delicious breakfasts created by Beverly provided gastronomic delight as well as the energy for more hiking. We will be returning as soon as scheduling permits. I personally recommend a visit to the Carriage house for the ladies - you will not be sorry!


Stay where "President Ike" stayed.

We loved the space offered to us in our room/ suite as well as our being able to use the parlor for our wine before dinner. Great attention was paid to all the details for a great stay.

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.

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.

5 on October 15, 2012

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

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.
