The owners bought this place a year ago. They have been remodeling since. The website is not up to date. They are working a new one. It is right the train tracks. The staff they were very nice, friendly and extremely accommodating and helpful. I would recommend it as a nice quiet place to stay.

The Boxwood Inn is one of the most interesting places in Newport News. The owners are so proud of the history of the inn. It has gone from originally being a private home to becoming a guest house, a post office, a train station, and now back to an inn and lovely restaurant. All the rooms are newly renovated and...

In looking for a wedding reception venue, found this amazing spot! Sweetest staff and great food. Entertaining guests with such ambiance - good for young and older guests - all should enjoy. Turnkey operation is such a relief. Thanks to Susie and George.

The Lunch Counter at the Boxwood Inn is wonderful. My husband and I have been there about a dozen times already. The food is homemade and delicious. Whether you are in the mood for a burger or some homemade soup, everything is fresh and made to order. But, save room for dessert - the banana pudding is amazing. The wait... More

Susie and George are great. This is a historic inn from long ago next to the train depot. Along with this being a B&B it is also a tea house, reception/event venue, country store/antique shop, etc. The breakfasts were wonderful, and plentiful! We are visiting my son in the Navy and there's lots to do. Close to Williamsburg, Virginia Beach... More
