Historical Traveler Reviews Boxwood Inn of Williamsburg
Fantastic Experience at Boxwood
We stayed at this B&B for the Delaware / William & Mary football game and had a great time. The Innkeepers are friendly and the breakfast was absolutely amazing! The stadium is within walking distance (three blocks) from Boxwood Inn as well as shopping and restaurants.
The room and bathroom were impecably clean and the decor was excellent. We will stay here again. Did I mention that the breakfast was amazing?
Lovely B&B with a GREAT location
My wife and I had recently had the pleasure of staying at the Boxwood Inn in Williamsburg, VA. We found this B&B to be extremely warm and inviting. The generous public rooms were well appointed and decorated as was our room. We stayed in the Jefferson Room that came with an ample bath with spa jacuzzi.
The Owner/Operators were very accommodating with directions to local attractions. We were surprised at how close we were to Colonial Williamsburg and The College of William and Mary, both within easy walking distance. Shopping at the Outlets was just a short drive away. The location made our trip to Williamsburg all the more easy because there was little travel time to our destinations.
The Inn has a relaxing porch overlooking well kept gardens. Great after a day touring town or shopping. We weren't surprised at the wonderful breakfast served the following morning after our first night. The food met the high standards of the Inn's decor.
We hope to return to the Boxwood Inn on our next visit to Williamsburg. A relaxing warm place to stay with an excellent location.
Best Bed & Breakfast
The Boxwood Inn is the best bed & breakfast experience that I have ever had. The Innkeepers are the perfect hosts. You will enjoy the manicured lawn and gardens and the lavish interior decorations.
The Boxwood is Tops!
We've just returned from a wonderful weekend stay at the Boxwood Inn in Williamsburg, VA. This is our second stay at the Boxwood and we will definitely return. Steps away from the campus of the College of William & Mary and downtown Colonial Williamsburg, the Boxwood has a superb location and private offstreet parking for guests. This beautiful B&B has been exquisitely decorated by the innkeepers, Sandi and Steve. They are very friendly and hospitable and we felt quite at home. Their two resident pug dogs, Scooter and Lucy, are adorable, well-behaved, and do not make an appearance unless requested ... so be sure to ask for them! The delicious Saturday morning breakfast was excellent and filling, beautifully presented in the dining room. The signature pecan pastry dish is to die for! We slept soundly in the quiet bedroom on a most comfortable and cozy bed. Luxurious linens are such a treat and we felt pampered. There are several areas, both inside and outside of the home, to sit and relax and chat or read. We both felt welcomed, unpressured, and at ease. We would HIGHLY recommend the Boxwood Inn to anyone looking for a wonderful home away from home. Hope to see you there!
Perfection in Williamsburg
Not only was the Boxwood near restaurants and the historic district, it was lovely inside and out. The pictures on their website do not do it justice. The landscaping around the house was perfection. Rooms were pristine. Breakfasts (4) were hearty and delicious. Best of all were the owners, Sandy and Steve. They provided much fun and laughter. Best B&B we have ever stayed in.
Wonderful B&B - great location, wonderful food, beautiful
My husband and I were fortunate enough to decide to stay at The Boxwood Inn in Williamsburg during our recent trip to the area. We stayed for a week in the lovely Monroe room. Sandy's breakfasts were delicious (not toast and cereal) gourmet feasts. Our absolute favorite was her delicious Praline-topped French toast. We enjoyed it so much that we bought the Virginia B&B cookbook that has this recipe in it!
In addition to the wonderful breakfasts that are prompty served at 8:30, the rooms throughout the house are impeccably decorated. The house is kept in immaculate condition.
The house is within easy walking distance to Colonial Williamsburg, William & Mary, and Merchant Square. We walked almost every day we were there to Merchant Square and never felt uneasy. (Some places we have been, though within walking distance of things, were in a less-than-ideal areas.)
We plan to stay here again, but we will choose either the Jefferson or Washington rooms next time for the additional space. The Monroe and Tyler rooms were well appointed, just a bit small for a lengthy stay that involved manuevering around a good deal of luggage!
One of the wonderful things about staying in Bed and Breakfasts instead of hotels is that you get personal attention. Steve and Sandy were more than happy to provide assistance in choosing places to dine and directions to wherever you were headed.
Count yourselves lucky if you get the opportunity to visit Williamsburg, but even doubly so if you get to stay in the Boxwood Inn!
Hello! I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful experience vacationing at
your Bed & Breakfast. This was our first time at a B&B & we were quite
pleased with how beautiful (and clean!) your home was. Definitely my most
peaceful night's sleep in a LONG time! And the breakfast was delicious! I
will definitely come back for years to come. Thanks again!

Best B&B Experience!
My husband and I spent several days during our honeymoon. This is the best B&B experience we have had -- everything was great! Our room and the entire B&B were very clean. The gardens were beautiful. The breakfasts were delicious. The hospitality was gracious. We rank this as the best, and look forward to returning!
Our four night stay at The Boxwood Inn of Williamsburg was a 50th Wedding Anniversary Gift from our Son & Daughter In Law. It was one of the most comfortable, pleasant, and enjoyable experiences we've ever had.
We stayed in The Washington Carriage House and the accommodations were fabulous with a king size four poster bed with canopy, a generous and tastefully appointed lounging area, and a Cable TV with a great picture.
The house and gardens are beautiful and the breakfasts terrific; however, the most lasting and meaningful feature of The Boxwood of Williamsburg was the friendliness and warmth of our hosts, Sandi & Steve.
The Best B&B Experience
This is the best b&b I have ever visited. My husband and I love Williamsburg and found Boxwood Inn on our most recent trip. We were sorry our experience there was only for a couple of nights because this inn is superb. The difference between Boxwood and other b&b's is the amount of care that the owners take with all of the details. We stayed in the Monroe room - very comfortable bed. The whole house is extrememly quaint without feeling old and rickety like many b&b's do. Breakfast was delicious. I can't say enough good about it. Also, it is within walking distance of the downtown colonial area. Even though this inn is excellent - the rates were really affordable (we paid $115/night). My only caveat - there are two b&b's with the name Boxwood in the Williamsburg area. This is the one you want!! (708 Richmond).

Monday, June 8 (yesterday):
So on Sunday I thought I was out of the woods. By Monday I was so far into the woods, I couldn’t even find Pooh (silly old bear). I went backwards in my recovery. And to top it all off, Barbara started complaining of a sore throat. That did it. We bundled ourselves into the car and went in search of a clinic.
We found one not far ...
... here! As long as this overgrown turtle-shell ain’t movin’. That’d be crazy. And if it is, I’ll just sit here quietly, playin’ solitaire and watchin’ my movies until the next time it stops. Then I’m outa here!
But maybe I’ll wait 'til tomorrow. I hear they’re playing "Miss Congeniality" in the rec room tonight. I just love Sandra ...

The records of the actual trial are incomplete, so there is no record of what happened to her. However, on further research, they found a death notice around 1740 for the woman ...

Now we sit here, in a new site, in the middle of an afternoon thunderstorm (now, when I say “thunderstorm”, don’t think of those little, namby-pamby Palo Alto weather anomalies that the entire eastern seaboard laugh at, think of “HOLY CRAB! The sky is opening up and the world is ending!”), waiting for me to get over this ...

The day was perfect- sunny blue sky with fluffy white clouds :) The shops and old buildings along Main street were as many and varied as the tourists who patronised them. There were dimly lit taverns, a well-restored governor's palace complete with golden statues on the roof, tall stately courtrooms, a cosy little bakehouse and specialty stores such as a milliner, blacksmith, soap-maker, ...
