“A Lovely Property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

Let's begin in saying that my husband and I have stayed at over 40 B&B's in our travels and we both agree that Betsy is the most accommodating hostess that we have met. She gladly prepared a delicious breakfast for us an hour early and that same day made breakfast sandwiches to go for another couple who had to be on the road before 7 am. The house itself is located off the beaten path but within 15 to 20 minutes to all the attractions that we wanted to see. There are cold drinks. snacks and coffee or tea available during the day. We even used the guest refrigerator to store some fruit that we had purchased at the Green Dragon Market, another attraction that we recommend. The rooms are nicely sized and appointed. We would definitely return to the Boxwood Inn!

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed fine!

We stayed here the first weekend of June Sun to Tues. we were the only guests, had the beautiful sunroom to ourselves. The Amish room was comfy, the breakfast was out of this world, the hosts so very nice. Wonderful park 2 blocks away, spent time in Lititz, just a great location and a great place, would recommend to anyone!

We had an opportunity to spend two nights at this lovely place...and only wish we had more time. We stayed in the "Amish" room and it definitely met our needs. The bed was comfortable, and both bedroom and bath were very clean. The home was beautiful--especially the sun porch. What a delightful place to enjoy a glass of wine, chat with other visitors, or just relax and enjoy the outside views (lovely back yard!).

Oh, and the breakfast! sooooo good!

About my husband, he wasn't sure about the "old" house and the B&B experience, but the owners plus the natural charm of the home changed his mind right away. Definitely don't limit yourself to only one night...or even two like we did.

*the house was SO quiet, I had trouble sleeping (I use a fan at home). I asked if there might be a fan available and one was quickly provided. Yay!

We scored a deal to this fabulous place on living social and only chose it because it was en route to a previously planned trip to Atlantic City. I thought it would be a nice pre-trip place for hubby and I to relax and enjoy the Amish countryside before partying with our friends. Am I ever glad we stumbled upon this gem! The hostess was very accommodating with our arrival time, and super friendly. Breakfast was served based on our preferred time. The surrounding area is picturesque, and we got some beautiful pictures. We enjoyed two nights and explored Amish country.

Perfect Spot for a couple getaway.

We most certainly plan to return to Boxwood Inn. Hospitality at its finest, for sure!!!

We spent two nights here recently and were astounded by how lovely the grounds were. They have a really lovely patio area that looks over a well manicured lawn and garden area. It's a wonderful place to drink a cup of coffee and read the paper. We also very much enjoyed the town of Akron, and its close neighbor, Ephrata. They are a bit away from the major Amish tourist hustle and bustle (which is nice), but it's easy to get to the busy section when you want. Don't miss the "Green Dragon Flea Market" which happens every Friday, in Ephrata. We had the BEST soft pretzels and fried chicken of our visit, there.

Betsy is a great hostess. Very attentive, but not overbearing and her breakfasts leave us still talking about them! I'd go back just for those! Beds are reasonably comfortable and yes, the place could use a bit of updating, but whose house couldn't? I would go stay here again in a heartbeat and I invite you to do the same.

Perfect spot for a quiet weekend-- our room was immaculate. The living room and other shared areas were a little dated, but it did not take away from the overall experience. Breakfast was nice-- coffee was excellent. The grounds were lovely -- looked like a nice spot to sit on the patio if it were warmer!

Spent two nights at the Boxwood Inn in the "Carriage House" with our Golden Retriever while we visited nearby Amish country. The inn keeper, Betsy, was extremely helpful, provided us with excellent recommendations, made fantastic breakfasts and had a great sense of humor. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer.
