We often come here during the week when my husband is craving an exceptional prime rib. The service is efficient without being intrusive and the food is always excellent. The Wayside Inn is a great dining experience and the atmosphere in the Tap Room can't be beat!

had a terrific meal in the colonial dining room. The food and service were both way above average. The menu is varied and the true bargain is the dinner special with soup or salad, entree with two veggies, and a dessert. Be sure and wander the public areas...in the pub you will find Longfellow's desk! One room (upstairs) is open... More

Staying at the Wayside Inn is like falling back in time to the days of George Washington, John Adams and Paul Revere. A well maintained actual colonial site, in operation since before the revolution, and modern recreation that works as a functional Inn and a historical reference in equal measure. The history is real and the comfort is modern and... More

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Wayside Inn. As an English major, such establishments are a real draw for me. This area of Massachusetts is so full of history, including literary. The Wayside is in a beautiful location and is so tranquil I think I could have stayed there forever. The staff is extremely helpful and very nice. From... More

This place is off the beaten path, but worth the stop. We planned our trip around the fife and drum group which practices at the Inn once a week. The rooms are not luxurious but they are comfortable. When staying in a place like this, you stay for the history and there is a lot of it. The bar is... More

We were on one of many history research tour of New England and the Longfellow's Wayside Inn was one of the places we had not visited - so we called and booked a room. We also booked a meal reservation for 7pm in the Tap Room. We arrived to find a HUGE party going on in a tent on the... More

We attended a wedding there, July 2014. The Church is gorgeous. The Inn is quaint and very interesting. If you love a haunted place, stay in room 9. Make sure you do E.V.P.'s while you're there. That's all I'll say. I would recommend the food also. Very good.

This is an historic inn, very few rooms and the place is better known for dining and historic buildings/grounds. Rooms are relatively small and Spartan, but there was a window air conditioner as a concession to modern standards. Iffy WiFi. Staff were attentive and friendly. And breakfast included all standard menu in the meal voucher, with passably good coffee.
