My friend and I enjoyed our stay. It was very comfortable. The lady is extremely Nice and welcoming. Breakfast was good and well prepared. I would have given higher rating but there are a few minor suggestions (1) there is no Ice machine so access to ice was an issue (2) the cookies were stale -- maybe fresh homemade cookies... More

The Boxwood Inn is set on a beautifully landscaped property. Built before the Revolutionary War, this stone farmhouse has lots of historical charm. There are several common area rooms, my favorite, is the large sunroom which overlooks the property beyond the slate patio. It rained during our stay so we were unable to stroll the grounds but rather enjoyed the... More

Charming, quaint and peaceful. This is a wonderful little gem in the heart of Lancaster Amish country. I was in the "farm" room where when I woke up I could see acres and acres of planted land with little sprouts on it since it was the morning of May 25th when I woke up and the corn had just been...

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.

Our two nights evenings at "The Boxwood Inn" were way to brief. Its a lovely Inn with a lovely location. We enjoyed meeting Betsy. Her sense of humor and breakfasts added to our stay. We traveled to Lititz for dinner at the Olde Lincoln Inn our first evening then to Ephrata dining at General Sutter Inn on our second. Our... More

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
