We decided to visit Ephrata for a long weekend and as there are few hotels in the area, it was to be a bed & breakfast. We found on line the Boxwood, and the rooms seemed well appointed and rates reasonable. Though it was short notice, less than two weeks, we were able to book for a Friday & Saturday... More

For Christmas, my daughter gave my boyfriend a gift certificate to the Boxwood Inn. She chose it because we always travel with our bulldog and the Carriage House is pet friendly. When we needed a break from 'the real world' I went online and booked our mid-week stay at the Inn... It was amazingly serene... that sums it up. Greg... More

The property has great "bones" for a B&B, but needs some refreshing to make it worth the price. Many things seem to have been allowed to fall into a state of disrepair and are in need of updating. The breakfast could of been better in terms of items and more items should/could have been sourced locally since they are right... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Boxwood Inn many times over the past several years. It truly feels like our home away from home. Betsy and Greg are wonderful hosts, and the B&B is a quiet, welcoming Inn.

Beautiful property, very well kept. People were nice and food was good. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. No closet space. Grounds were gorgeous. Very peaceful. Would definitely stay there again.

We had not been to the inn so we had a little trepidation because of the Memorial day weekend and all the traffic into Lancaster county. But as we got off the main roads and wound through the Amish countryside our breathing got a little slower and we were able to think about unplugging from the craziness of life. Driving... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Boxwood Inn B&B near Ephrata, PA. We normally go to the Lancaster Area for day trips, but took a little extra time to stay over. While our stay at the Inn was short (one night), it was pleasant. I would generally suggest staying longer if time allows to take advantage of the... More

My wife and I recently traveled to Lancaster and found this lovely B&B in the area. We originally planned to bring along our dog, but found someone to watch him at the last minute. However, as a result of reserving a pet friendly room, we were assigned the Carriage House room. A very comfortable suite-style room separate from the main... More

We had a lovely stay here. Betsy is very welcoming. The house is charming and old and very, very comfortable. The bed was great, and we slept very well. Altho it is a B&B and not a hotel, each room has its own bath. There are cookies and drinks for guests in the sunroom, horse-and-buggy traffic just outside (no noise... More

My wife and I stayed at the Boxwood Inn after there was a problem with the plumbing in the Inn in which we originally had a reservation. The innkeeper arranged for us to stay at the Boxwood Inn. Betsy and Greg were gracious hosts and opened their inn to us. The inn was beautiful and Betsy made a great breakfast.... More
