If a rural retreat is more your style, this B&B in Hanover, Virginia is a short distance from exit-98 north of Richmond and will not disappoint.
Inn keepers Ralph and Gail Olberg welcome guests to their charming country getaway, providing cozy accommodations, an incredibly comfortable sleep number bed, delicious Virginia chocolates and a tasty, farm-fresh breakfast.
There's plenty of opportunity for enjoying the natural surroundings at Shady Acres. Take a walk around the property or sit on the porch; you may even see wild turkey, deer or a bald eagle at this tranquil inn.
I had the pleasure of staying the night and enjoyed the experience of meeting the chickens responsible for my morning meal. I can't say that's ever happened to me at a hotel.
Shady Acres is a short distance from Richmond, Kings Dominion and 90-minutes south of Washington, DC.
