The Boxwood Inn was exceptional. It was quiet and located in a beautiful setting. Betsy and Greg, the owners, were very gracious to a special accommodation we had asked of them. The area is very interesting and it is definitely a place to visit and explore!

We visited the Boxwood for our anniversary weekend. From the moment we arrived, Betsy made us feel right at home. She helped us with finding places to eat and suggested things to do and places to visit. We stayed in the Carriage House, which was a separate accommodation on the property. It was beautiful, with a fireplace and a Jacuzzi... More

We stayed in the Amish Room at least 20 years ago and loved it then! Betsy was so accommodating even after I screwed up the reservation by unknowingly using the wrong dates. Her face was priceless when we showed up two weeks earlier than our reservation saying "we're here"! She quickly accommodated us back in the Amish Room, which hadn't... More

Betsy makes you feel right at home. Very nice setup and didn't feel like we were intruding. Betsy provided good recommendations for dining and events that were not your typical tourist venues. The breakfasts were awesome and Betsy can really cook. Wife and I stayed in the Floral Room. Enjoyed the accommodations. The house has it share of creaks and... More

We had a lovely time at the Boxwood Inn - Greg and Betsy were lovely innkeepers who made us feel welcome and attended to from the moment we arrived. The inn and grounds are lovely. Our room was very comfortable and welcoming. Betsy's breakfast was fantastic! We only stayed one night and wished we had planned for two!

What a find. We highly recommend this lovely inn. We loved our room, the common areas, the patio and the location. Also all the help in choosing a play to eat and general information about the area. Looking forward to our next visit.

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...
