I surprised my wife with an overnight stay for her birthday. This was our first time at the Boxwood Inn. The property is beautiful and Betsy was a wealth of information for attractions and dining in the area. The home is beautiful in a nice location. Breakfast filled us up. We'll be back!

Nice bed & breakfast off the beaten path!

We found this very nice bed & breakfast literally right next to farms. It was quiet, relaxing and just what we needed. Breakfast was hot & delicious every morning. Betsy and Greg were very nice hosts. Becky told us about a couple restaurants we may like to try and about things to do in the area. The Carriage House was quiet & secluded... And we loved the quiet! Recommended to anyone who wants a relaxing experience & dosent want to stay in a commercial hotel.

Wonderful B&B

We totally enjoyed our visit to the Boxwood Inn. The rooms and breakfast were excellent. It is in the middle of the Amish area and it was wonderful to wake up and hear the clomping of horse and buggy outside. We will certainly visit again.

Just great!

The rooms are neat and clean. The common room and sun room make you feel right at home. And, you sit on the edge of your seat at breakfast, in anticipation of what wonderful foods will be placed on the table before you.

We stayed in the carriage house. The fire place only burned paper logs and we had to ask for one and it only burned about an hour. The breakfast was just okay, and we left hungry. The $250.00 a night price tag was not worth it in our opinion.

What a wonderful and peaceful place to relax, Betsy was so gracious and helpful. I will definitely stay there when I go back to Lancaster

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.

Very Relaxing

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.
