In planning a Sunday return to Virginia from the Great Northeast after a weekend with the grandchildren, my wife expressed a desire to see the cherry blossoms in DC. We decide the best plan was to stay in the Baltimore area on Sunday night so we could go into DC on a seemingly less crowded Monday morning (which we found... More

My husband booked a night at the Wayside Inn "just because", and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. David and Susan, the innkeepers, did all they could to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. The Inn is meticulously maintained and impeccably clean. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were amazing, and the beautifully appointed bathroom had a spacious jacuzzi tub... More

My wife and I got married here last September. I can't recommend it highly enough for an event. At every step of the way, the owners were incredibly helpful, including meeting with our wedding planner, giving us advice on which vendors they had worked with successfully in the past, and helping us with coordinating vendors (tent, equipment) in days leading...

I am from Catonsville and didn't know this gem was hiding in plain sight. From the moment our host, David, greeted us at the front door, my husband and I instantly felt at home. This was our first B&B experience, but it won't be our last. David is a charming and gracious host and makes you feel at home. Our... More

My sister and I decided to do a weekend getaway for Mother's Day 2013 and found this enchanting bed and breakfast right in our own backyard. The weather didn't cooperate for the weekend but despite the rain (which was no one's fault!), we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wayside Inn. Our Hosts were lovely and gracious, the house itself... More

My first time at a Bed and Breakfast. Loved the whole experience. Owners were friendly and hospitable. Left feeling like I'd made a new friend. Rooms were inviting and comfortable. Breakfast was an event… the best in Maryland!

We have stayed in many inns and B&Bs throughout the USA and Europe and, without a doubt, The Wayside Inn experience was one of our best. We recently spent two warm and cozy nights at the inn on a special occasion get-away.
