Historical Traveler Reviews Boxwood Inn of Williamsburg

Fantastic Experience at Boxwood

from

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

from

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

from

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!

from

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

from

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

from

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!

Great Experience!

from

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!

-Melissa & Chris

Best B&B Experience!

from

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!

Fabulous Place

from

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

from

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).

Necessary roughness

A travel blog entry by aprilshirish on Nov 05, 2014

As we left Bethesda, we headed south a couple hundred miles and back in time a couple hundred years... to 1775 in Colonial Williamsburg. As usual, we were late. Consequently, upon arrival, we realized that we weren't left with enough time to explore the apothecary, capitol building, governor's palace, and (most importantly)... the JAIL! So we needed to stay the night and continue our anachronistic hijinks into the next morning. We were fortunate enough to ...

... will begin our drive to Colorado. We will spend a few days with my cousin and his wife. And then on Monday, November 3, we will board the California Zephyr to arrive home on Tuesday afternoon. Since most of this portion of the trip will be quick driving and visiting family my posts may be diminished and of little interest to many of you. So thank you to all for your input and encouragement. We are finally heading west, heading home! PS And the Giants are ahead! Go ...

PS Thank you to all who have mentioned the Giants. We have been keeping up and haven't seen all the games but have caught many. My last two blogs have been done watching the World Series. Last night was great, but now they are 5 behind, 7th inning and it's almost 11:00. Games get late here on the east coast. Go ...

... we are sure there is an official name for his position but we missed it if he said it). The guard that is leaving is then also inspected and the two leave and the new guard does exactly what the previous guard had been doings hen we arrived. They seem to have an automatic clock and turns and clicks his heels about every 20 seconds. Very impressive and moving.

When this was done we saw on our map that we were close to the Nurses Memorial and Sheree ...

... I took Kylie to the "Spirit of Halloween" store to get her a costume. Ended up at "Party Time" store where she found a neat witches outfit.

We picked up Dawn and Eric's friend, Lorraine, so that she could join the family for Sunday evening dinner. It was going to be an unusual evening, as all three of the kids were going to be home for dinner. Usually at least one is working.
