Betsy's breakfasts were awesome and she was so helpful in finding great places to eat, etc. My room upstairs had a rocking chair in it and in the evening I could sit with the windows open and listen and watch the horse and buggies go by. It doesn't get any better than that.
what a great find! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our gracious host turned out to be a great cook as well. this place had all the elements we valued: A friendly host who was available for whatever we needed, yet gave us the privacy we came for. Breakfast outside on the patio terrace was spectacular! we enjoyed the spacious farmhouse, the four legged mascot, and good quality soft music in the background blended well with the floral scenery and peaceful fields surrounding the Inn. We look forward to our return.
Great place and some beautiful surroundings too. Betsy could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. Although we went to Lancaster for an overnight stay to check out the Central Market,Betsy was certainly willing to fill us in on all the things we could do. Maybe next time. I would certainly recommend The Boxwood Inn to anybody who planned to spend some time in the area...and if you stay, don't forget to stop by the farmer's place at the end of the road. The fresh eggs are monsters !!
On our recent visit to Amish country we had the pleasure of staying at the Boxwood Inn B&B. Betsy is the perfect hostess, so warm and friendly, and she can serve up some satisfying food. If we're lucky enough to return to this beautiful countryside, this is the only place we will stay. Thanks, Betsy Cheryl R-Atlanta, Georgia
The whole familiy had a very nice stay at The Boxwood Inn. The landlord and landlady were very nice and help us out alot with restaurants nearby and sights to check out. The room was comfortable, we highly recommend to stay here.
My husband and I and my best friend and her husband stayed here last Saturday night. We had the best time! We didn't even go to dinner but stayed and hung out with the inn owners, who are very fun and laid back. It was my birthday weekend and couldn't have asked for a better one!
My wife & I have mostly stayed in "cheaper" motel rooms when traveling on 3-4 day vacations. I was the highest bidder on a recent "WCNY-TV tel-auc" for a 2 night stay at the BOXWOODS INN in Akron Pa. It was our first stay at a B & B. After this, I will consider a B & B for every trip and for any further visits to Amish Country in and around Lancaster, Pa., I can honestly say it will be at the Boxwood Inn. My wife & I could not believe the beauty of the grounds, the inn, and the rooms. Everything was perfectly kept up inside & out. We stayed in the Hunt Room, which is the largest and (IMO), the best. We were the only guests for one of the days there, so I took a look at the other three rooms. They all had different themes, but each room was laid out perfectly and completely spotless. If all this were not enough, Betsy & Greg (the host & hostess) could not do enough for us. They both had a great sense of humor, and were willing to chat with us whenever we had a question about what to see, where to eat, and willing to give great directions on how to get there. To top it off, Betsy served us a great breafast with with a variety of breakfast meats, eggs, potatoes, fresh fruit, juices, muffins and unlimited coffee each morning. Because of Betsy's great sense of humor, friendliness, and willingness to help us enjoy our mini vacation in any way she possibly could, we both left there thinking we had made a new friend. We definately have found the perfect place for our next trip to that area.
The service was great and the owners were very friendly and helpful. They were there when we needed them but otherwise it was private and secluded. I would definitely go back and recommend this place to others. The owner's were very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and helpful for suggesting places to explore and dine.
We stayed at the Inn for New Year's Eve and truly enjoyed it. We spent time with friends in the living room over drinks and a puzzle then headed out to watch the yellow and purple shoe drop in Akron's main st. area. The BnB host was very welcoming and unobtrusive. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had a great time!
It was brilliant and one of the highlights of our holiday Betsy & g Greg were great hosts. They couldn't do enough to help us and were always ready for a chat to find out what we planned to do and what we did each day. Breakfast was to die for and the restaurants Betsy recommended were the best. Greatr place to stay just wish we'd stayed longer - Richard & Sue Hatton - Bath UK
The Carriage House at the Boxwood Inn is a home away from home. Plenty of amenities. Breakfasts were excellent with plenty of food. Our hostess was charming and knows the area well, plus she gave good directions to area attractions. We love the Lancaster area and now we have a place to stay.
My wife and I stayed at the Boxwood Inn when we visited Amish Country. We stayed in the C. House cottage with our two small puppies. The stay at Boxwood Inn was very plesent and peaceful with all the privacy you could want. When we stayed at the Boxwood Inn in Akron, PA. we found the location was great because a small drive allows you to visit many places in different directions. My wife and I enjoyed our visit to PA. and if you are interested in slowing down to enjoy you visit - Then we suggest staying at the Boxwood Inn in Akron, PA. Mr. & Mrs. D.
We recently stayed at the Boxwood Inn for Valentine's Day weekend. We stayed in the Hunt Room, which was incredible, and we HIGHLY recommend it. It may be slightly more pricey than the other rooms, but it is DEFINITELY worth the price! If you're looking for the perfect balance between the privacy and luxury of a fancy hotel suite, and the friendly assistance and warmth of a bed & breakfast, this is the place for you. The entire estate was in pristine condition, not a single problem, and everything was very aesthetically pleasing. The food was AMAZING, and the company was incredible. Betsy is a wonderful person, who had great stories and an excellent sense of humor. She also made perfect recommendations on where to go, how to get there, and what we should do. Overall this was an incredible weekend, and we HIGHLY recommend that you choose the Boxwood Inn (and choose the Hunt Room, without a doubt)!!! Room Tip: The Hunt Room is the absolute best, worth every penny!
We looked to stay in Lancaster Pa to visit our son at college and have a little time for ourselves. The Boxwood Inn allowed us to enjoy both aspects of our trip. It was convenient, clean and right in the middle of everything we were looking to do, sightseeing, shopping, and most of all relaxing. We recomend the Boxwood Inn.
We had the pleasure of staying in the carriage house which allowed us to bring our dog along which was nice. We have stayed at several B&B's. Although this wasn't the best I've been to, we certainly enjoyed our stay. There are some updates that I feel need to be made and there was some minor issues but so small they aren't really worth mentioning. What does need to be mentioned is how wonderful Betsy is! She is a true gem of an inn keeper and we really enjoyed talking with her. We also enjoyed the two breakfasts we had there. Although the Boxwood isn't top of the line, I would stay there again.
the Boxwood Inn just outside of Lancaster is a true treat. nestled along side of amish farms and forest it makes for a great escape from pretty much anywhere! romantic settings and a cozy home -- with an amazing breakfast make this an ideal getaway. Shirley (the owner) is top notch and is there to make sure your stay, visit or returning adventure is one to remember.
