This has to be the dowager queen of B&Bs in the Baltimore area: built in 1780 with 20"-thick local granite walls, creaky original wood plank floors, and an accompanying oak tree that was alive when the Constitution was signed...this is historical beyond belief! David and Susan are most gracious in guest interactions and the breakfasts were fresh and good. The... More

This was our 1st time staying at a B&B and it won't be our last. Unfortunately we only had the pleasure of staying at The Wayside Inn for one night but it was more than enough time for us to fall in love. The staff was friendly, rooms were spotless and comfy with some amazingly soft sheets. A coffee machine... More

I had a rather strange request of a bed and breakfast and I wasn't sure how it'd go over with the InnKeepers. I was doing a photo shoot and I needed a place with a great back drop and beautiful decor to complete my project. I wasn't sure if they'd think it would be disruptive to the other guests or... More

After much searching for a wedding venue that suited our needs, my fiance and I accidentally stumbled on the Wayside Inn-- and it was the best thing that happened to us! The owners, Susan and Dave, are extremely accommodating, the venue is charming and elegant, and the breakfast is outstanding! The inn is historic and also full of natural beauty... More

We took a chance on a Groupon and we're so glad we did. Disclaimer: this was our first B&B, so we didn't know what to expect, but we were so delighted with our stay in the Ellicott room. It's an incredibly charming place, the owner is astonishingly friendly and helpful (he made a great recommendation for dinner, made our reservations... More

The beds were amazing!!! The floors creak a lot but it's very charming and comfortable. The inn sitter was a member of the innkeepers and she was wonderful! Breakfast was gourmet and delicious!

My husband and I live in a near by town but just wanted to get away for the week end and chose The Wayside. I was a bit disappointed that the house was so close to the main highway but once inside I did not see or hear the traffic. The bed was very comfortable, the jacuzzi was delightful and... More
