We've stayed at the Boxwood Inn several times over the years. The rooms are exceptionally well maintained, comfortable, and clean. It is a home away from home. Greg and Betsy put you at ease immediately and the food is outstanding. I loved our stay there and would highly recommend it to everyone!

The Boxwood Inn has the most amazing Charm and Ambiance! This old, but renovated farmhouse is as cozy and comfortable as home, but with the convenience of a delicious home cooked breakfast made just for you! I love that! The Inn keepers Greg and Betsy are both delightful with great senses of humor and are a wealth of knowledge of... More

The best place to stay in Pennsylvania Dutch country! Betsy's hospitality, variety of delicious breakfasts, beautifully appointed themed guest rooms, private carriage house suite, large outdoor patio overlooking countryside vistas all combined to make our many stays in this mid-18th century farmhouse a fantastic experience. Can't wait until we go back there for our next vacation.

Such a lovely weekend! Greg and Betsy were the consummate hosts, helping us to choose just the right restaurants and make the most of our sightseeing weekend. The Boxwood Inn was our home away from home. The grounds are beautiful and we had free reign of the garden room, sitting room and outdoor deck. Delicious homemade cookies, local chocolates and...

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
