This was our very first bed and breakfast experience, ever. I'm afraid that after this stay that I'm going to find it very hard to have another wonderful experience anywhere else. We stumbled into The Wayside by leaving the beach early to do something different. We hunted and hunted all over to find a B&B and most that I had... More

I can't say enough about this lovely bed and breakfast. From the moment I called to make thereservation, to being greeted and shown around, to being served a most wonderful breakfast, the proprietor, David was fabulous. The house is beyond words. You will want for nothing staying here. The decor is perfect. I'm looking forward to coming back and exploring... More

We've stayed at Wayside for 4 years now for our wedding anniversary and we are never disappointed. We are always made to feel so welcomed and loved, the home is so beautiful and easy to get to, the beds are like sleeping on a cloud and the breakfast is beyond delicious. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Good value, great rooms, grand building. Extremely nice hostess. The only thing that ever went wrong was that she gave us the wrong password for the internet, but I just called their phone # and got the password, so I didn't even have to go downstairs. Breakfast was good, not stellar. But they made so many accommodations for our little... More

We visited the Wayside Inn for a relaxing stay during a bachelorette spa weekend. This was during a big snow storm in which we got 8-10 inches of snow and unfortunately our spa reservation at a local spa (Luna Day Spa-which I DO NOT recommend) was cancelled. We had no where else to go and were really worried about continuing... More

My husband and I always go away to a B&B for my birthday. This has got to be one of my (our) favorites. We stayed there this past weekend. David is a friendly host and an excellent cook - altogether perfect for the job. The old house was filled with charm, very inviting, very clean. It was very tastefully decorated... More

After searching for weeks to find the perfect place for a weekend getaway in the Baltimore area, I found The Wayside Inn and I could not be more pleased with the find. The Inn combines historical charm with modern amenities and delicious breakfasts at a price that was better than any other option in the area. The Terrace Room with... More

Couldn't be more pleased with the stay my husband and I had here. The food was absolutely delicious, the linens and room were cozy and fantastic and the owner (David) was hilarious, warm and welcoming. You can really tell he enjoys taking care of people. We were so sad to leave and can't wait to go back. I really can't... More
