The owners bought this place a year ago. They have been remodeling since. The website is not up to date. They are working a new one. It is right the train tracks. The staff they were very nice, friendly and extremely accommodating and helpful. I would recommend it as a nice quiet place to stay.

In looking for a wedding reception venue, found this amazing spot! Sweetest staff and great food. Entertaining guests with such ambiance - good for young and older guests - all should enjoy. Turnkey operation is such a relief. Thanks to Susie and George.

The Lunch Counter at the Boxwood Inn is wonderful. My husband and I have been there about a dozen times already. The food is homemade and delicious. Whether you are in the mood for a burger or some homemade soup, everything is fresh and made to order. But, save room for dessert - the banana pudding is amazing. The wait...

Susie and George are great. This is a historic inn from long ago next to the train depot. Along with this being a B&B it is also a tea house, reception/event venue, country store/antique shop, etc. The breakfasts were wonderful, and plentiful! We are visiting my son in the Navy and there's lots to do. Close to Williamsburg, Virginia Beach...
