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!

It was my and my fiance's wedding night and owners Susan and David at the The Wayside Inn could not have made it any more special! The Inn, room, breakfast and service were fantastic.

Absolutely a top-notch bed an breakfast. Well thought out, friendly and welcoming. The devil is in the details and David has thought of it all from gourmet breakfast's, chocolate chip cookies waiting for you in the lobby to the awsome common rooms and books in the library, decor, history I can go on and on.

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. From David's first friendly greeting to our final good-bye, we enjoyed the welcoming ambience of this beautifully restored... More

My three day stay at the Wayside Inn was excellent all the WAY around! The Inn with its warmth and charm was just what was needed for a girl's getaway. There are several options for visiting downstairs in common rooms, however we had the two top floor bedrooms with adjoining sitting rooms all to ourselves -two private baths, as well.... More

Just spent a girls weekend at this wonderful B&B. Reminded me so much of my New England roots,but that aside,David and Susan,the innkeepers were great! They were so hospitable-there when we needed information about the area which they were very knowledgeable about and great to chat with,but by no means intrusive. We came and went freely.

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and we celebrated our anniversary during our stay. After having dinner nearby, we arrived at 6pm and were welcomed by David who got us acquainted with all of the amenities. After that it was a relaxing night in the Banneker Room.

We were with you on Dec. 14 & 15. It was wonderful: convenient, comfortable, welcoming and enjoyable. The history of the area and the Inn itself made the stay especially interesting to us, but above all, the breakfasts sold us. They were both imaginative and delicious. In fact, we just downloaded your recipe for the french toast and we look... More

Super comfy room, bed, pillows, towels, etc. Breakfast was varied and delicious... the B&B is very close to Ellicot City which is a little, quaint town with a couple of amazing restaurants and interesting, little stores. We will visit again next year...
