Went for an evening meal with a bus group. The place was brimming with atmosphere and the staff was so accommodating. We were entertained during our meal by a trio dressed in period clothing. The food was prepared and served hot and in a timely manner. The only draw back was we didn't have a lot of room as there... More

The staff at the Boxwood Inn was so kind and very efficient. Enjoyed being there! The Shepard's Pie wasn't the best we've had, but everyone had a very nice time. Loved the hand-made Santa Claus and decor!

I stayed at the Boxwood Inn when my son was interviewing at CNU. My schedule was crazy that weekend and Kathy and Derek took great care of me and my crazy schedule. The room was GREAT, clean and I slept very well. I will be back more often as my son will be attending CNU in the fall.

I spent the weekend here. I was in the traveling salesman room. Loved the whole place. It used to be an old General Store many many years ago And it still has a wonderful feel to it. The owners are courteous, friendly and warm.
