A partner is always a good friend to have in the industry...

We believe in creating partners with lasting relationships at the Historic Boxwood Inn. Our highly-trained, friendly staff boasts over 45 years of experience in hosting hundreds of successful events. With our extensive industry knowledge, we can assist you in guiding your clients through the process of building their perfect event.

We are sure from your first visit to our historic property, you are sure to fall in love with the truly authentic and unique experience we offer. Explore the many intimate spaces your guests will be able to explore as they are transported back to the height of the 1800s. Take in all the perfectly polished antiques and the glorious smell of the original hardwood. We have been a historic centerpiece Lee Hall since 1896, having housed W.C. Fields, General “Blackjack” Perishing, America’s first four-star General as well as many others.

Providing the right assistance when it counts the most...

Once you have selected our venue, you can meet with your client onsite to discuss planning for the event. With a little notice, we can provide coffee, teas, and even a surprise for your arrival. We can provide the key assistance you need for your client by offering…

  •  A single contact for your vendors and providers to simplify the planning process.
  • A list of pre-approved caterers but we are more happy to work with your certified and insured caterer of choice.
  • Our Catering Partners can accommodate any dietary needs your guests may have.
  • List of local entertainers such as Vocalist and Jazz Groups.

The State of Virginia requires a posted license for serving alcohol so some caterers will have an ABC license that you can use, but if you would prefer to bring your own choice of beverages you can obtain a one-day license at the provided link. We find this to be a popular choice for many of our guests.

We always supply white tablecloths for all tables but also with our long-standing partnership with Hampton Roads Event Rentals we can offer:

  • Discounted pricing on a selection of colored tablecloths.
  • 5% off tent and place settings. 
  • Free delivery and pick-up for all Rentals.

Offering clear choices and concise pricing...

Our convenient location near Wharf Boulevard and Jefferson Avenue provide easy access to Interstate 64 for those traveling on the road and we have overnight staff available to guests arriving at night, with plenty of free onsite parking.

We offer custom packages with clear and concise pricing for Weddings or Corporate Events which can include

  • Overnight accommodations in four historic suites. Which can be used for traveling executives or family of the bride and groom.
  • Rehearsal dinner on premise.
  • Optional Catered morning brunch.
  • Bride and Bridesmaid dressing room in a separate wing.
  • Groom and Groomsmen prepare in comfortable, private lounge.
  • Free delivery and pick-up for all Rentals. 

While rain can happen, you don’t need to worry because we always have a plan in place. We work with you to accommodate your client seamlessly, even up to rescheduling the event in some cases. Also, at the Historic Boxwood Inn, we appreciate our Armed Forces and understand that deployments and official obligations can come in a moments notice, so we strive to accommodate for reschedules due to these circumstances.

We love celebrating our Event Planners and their Events. After your event is over we love to leave reviews of how hard you worked for your next potential client to read. It’s just another way we like to help you to grow your business.
