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.
