History abounds here.  Shining Dawn is located on a road upon which Union and Confederate Cavalries clashed during the Battle of Hanover.  Many historians believe that the Battle of Hanover had a positive influence on Union forces during the Battle of Gettysburg.  The Gettysburg National Military Park is only 15 miles to our west.  The first capital of the United States of America, York is only 20 miles to our east.
Although surrounded by pastoral Amish farms and charming scenery, Hanover is convenient to both the Washington beltway (1 1/2 hours) and the Baltimore beltway (1 hour). This makes our facility ideal for a weekend retreat from city living.  In addition to welcoming individual guests, we are well suited to provide accommodations for small corporate and group retreats.   We offer six comfortable guest rooms several of which can be combined into two or three room suites for small groups or large families.  Our spacious sunroom, living room, and dining room, which are interconnected by the grand foyer, provide ample floor space and flexibility for meetings, small group dining and activities. Wireless highspeed internet is available throughout the facility while the meditation room, and contemplation garden serve to help our guests relax in a tranquil atmosphere of peace and beauty.
We look forward to welcoming you as our guests!
