We came to The Wayside (Bed and Breakfast) for our anniversary and needed to relax and have no pressure. The room and jacuzzi were just what we needed. Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries on the back deck. The owner gave great recommendations for where to eat that night. The next morning we came down for a late breakfast and he... More

Warm and friendly hosts, beautiful and interesting B & B, quiet and secluded yet easily accessible. It was the perfect place to stay when visiting in the Baltimore area.

We eloped to Ellicott city in September of '95. We celebrated our 15 year anniversary returning to the city in which we were wed. We stayed in the "Ellicott Room" at The Wayside Inn. The room was awesome, the service was awesome and it was only 2 miles from historic Ellicott city. I highly recommend this B & B to... More

This is a lovely old house, but the folks running it seem to be very much on their own plan. I had told them I was short of time when checking in, but they still seemed surprised that I did not want a whole tour. I was told breakfast was at 9:30, when I said that was too late for... More

I was so excited when I first contacted the Wayside Inn to see if they had room for me, a few close friends, and my grown children for the weekend of my daughter's wedding. I had been a little disappointed that she was getting married in Washington, DC, instead of our home town, York, PA. David assured me there was... More

We held our faculty retreat there on May 17-19, 2010. Since this was mid-week we had the use of all of the rooms on the first floor. The meeting room can comfortably fit approximately 15-16 people. There is also a living room, small library and dining room that we used as well. Unfortunately it rained when we were there. If... More

My husband and I stayed at the Wayside Inn last weekend. We were in town for a relative's anniversary party. Instead of staying at a hotel, we decided on a B&B. What a great decision. This inn is absolutely charming inside and out. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The innkeepers were very personable. Our breakfast was not... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary at this adorable, affordable and charming bed & breakfast! We knew that we would be running late on the Friday night that we were checking in, and they were MORE than accomodating. We were escorted up to our room and were blown away by the beauty and cleanliness. The room... More

My husband and I spent our wedding night at The Wayside Inn. It was perfect - we arrived with dinner reservations at a local restaurant, but we were too exhausted to leave the room. Susan looked at us and helped to arrange for dinner which we ate in bed that evening. We stayed in the Terrace Room which was beyond... More
