We just did a belated 34th wedding anniversary getaway, and we couldn't have chosen a better place! There was peaceful beauty inside and out. We enjoyed visiting with another guest couple around the patio fireplace Saturday night. The breakfast was amazingly delicious, with fresh peaches and berries, baked French toast, and bacon/sausage! Highly recommended!

Our host and hostess were very nice innkeepers. They attended to our every need and permitted us free reign of the inn. Our rooms were comfortable and the breakfasts were excellent. The grounds were very pretty and the view of an Amish farm across the road was quaint.We had a fun experience. Thank you Betsy

Greg & Betsy are very personable and hospitable. The inn has such character. The grounds are so well manicured and impeccable. This is the place to go for a quiet and relaxing time. We had a very enjoyable weekend. Don't miss seeing the Amish countryside when you're visiting.

This inn is located in the historic Lancaster area which has so many sites to see. The Boxwood Inn is a great place to use as a base for all of the local sightseeing. More importantly, the inn itself is very comfortable and restful. The property is charming. You can lounge outside on the patio or inside in the garden... More

The innkeepers provided us with their garden room for our quilt retreat sewing area...wonderful room. They even had a night-time fire on their patio for us which we enjoyed with a glass of wine (or two). Since we rented out the entire place, they basically let us take over. We were very pleased with the accommodations; we booked next year's... More
