Boxwood Inn of Williamsburg: Bed and Breakfast Wins Beautification Award

This award is presented to companies and residences in Williamsburg, Virginia that represent a commitment to preserving and beautifying the Williamsburg community. Deputy Mayor Clyde Holman was at hand with members of the talented planning commission, Sandy and Steve Zarsky, with the desired award. Williamsburg accepts every year its citizens' nominations for the Williamsburg City Beauty Awards program. Boxwood Inn of Williamsburg has been nominated for this award many times since Sandi and Steve purchased and refurbished the property in 2000, but this is the first time he has been honored with this award.

The Williamsburg Bed and Breakfast at 708 Richmond Road underwent extensive interior and exterior renovations during the year 2000. Some of the (external) visual improvements included extensive landscapes with perennial and annual gardens, and brick and stone walkways installation. The end result was a great transformation of the home and property into a colorful bed and breakfast.

In 2003, an addition was built on the back of the bed and breakfast. This addition, Washington Carriage House, is one of Williamsburg's most impressive suites and has become the most popular destination in Inn. The magical ghetto, a favorite for wedding planners in Williamsburg, is isolated from the main house and is ideal for a honeymoon in Williamsburg, an anniversary, or a special event. It is flawlessly designed and includes a king-size bed, a Jacuzzi tub for two and a gas stove.

Locals, passers-by, and guests outside the city have made positive comments about the appearance of the property over the years. Some of their guests expressed the hope that this bed and breakfast will win a prize one day.
