Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend in Colonial Beach. Boxwood is a well maintained home that's walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The beds were comfortable, the neighborhood was quiet and the cold drinks and snacks waiting for us when we arrived were a nice surprise. Would definitely stay at Boxwood again.

Elegant and comfy

  • 5 of 5

It was the best of the best combo of a B&B and private cottage rental. The house and furnishings are gorgeous, and the hostess was very thoughtful with the snacks and fresh flowers. The bikes available for use were great, and the kitchen and lounging areas were well equipped. I have stayed at a few places in Colonial Beach, and this one is by far my favorite!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The Boxwood was a great rental home for me and my family while visiting Colonial Beach. An older home which reminded me of the house I grew up in PA. Plenty of room where 8 family members gathered each evening for dinner. Two other houses my family rented were small with very strict rules so they enjoyed visiting our rental every day. Cooked out on grill one evening and ate a bushel of crabs there the next evening. House was fully equipped. Was able to use the spacious accommodations for my sisters 70th surprise birthday party. Everything in walking distance. Would recommend to anyone. Will be back next year.

Charming and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This was a first time stay at "Boxwood" and it was a wonderful stay. The house is an older home with charm that only an older home can have. It is spacious, clean, neat and welcoming. The owners (I got the opportunity to meet them) are such nice people, who are easy to contact and they love having a place where others can call home while they are there. I love the walkable town and the closeness of the beach and what it has to offer. The town is safe and friendly people abound. This home has everything you could want in a home, comfort, nicely equipped kitchen ( I cook all meals because of how I eat so the kitchen was great!), comfortable beds, and games, DVD's and a peaceful atmosphere. The yard is nice and there is a golf cart to rent if needed. By the way the owners had sodas, water, and snacks waiting for each arrival. That was awesome and not the norm, I think? I thank the owners for having a home so welcoming for renters!! I would certainly stay at "Boxwood" again and I would recommend it to my friends. There are restaurants in the walking distance area. Blessings!

Lots of space. Would like to return.

  • 4 of 5

The Boxwood is a beautiful home ,decorated to give it a homey appeal. We appreciated the cool drinks and snacks waiting for us.. Everything we needed for our stay was provided. With three generations there,we had plenty of room to meet all our needs.By that I mean a quiet place for Grandma and Grandad,wifi and tv for the youngsters. Close to the beach and dining places,everything was within walking distance. We were there during a very hot spell and the breaker to the living room tripped numerous times doing our week stay. The house had several window air conditioners, probably causing the problem. I do think this is being taken care of. On our first day there, police were called three times to the next door neighbors house.The noise was impossible not to hear. My grandchildren's bikes were stolen off the side porch one night. I feel bad mentioning these negative things, because the owner has no control over these things, but I have received many request for a review and so here it is. I would love to stay in this house again. It met more than our expectations.
