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colonial site, in operation since before the revolution, and modern recreation that works as a functional Inn and a historical reference in equal measure.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.

A favorite spot for traditional New England fare. You can absolutely immerse youself in the history here. The grounds are lovely anytime of the year. Must have drinks in the tap room. We have spent the night multiple times, in both the historic rooms and the regular rooms; all are very quaint. If you are looking for a fancy updated... More

Whenever my in-laws or out of town guests come to visit we take them here. It's only a few miles from my Mom's house and it's definitely one of the highlights of the North Framingham/Sudbury area. If its a nice day I recommend taking a stroll around the grist mill and then walking along the paths towards the Martha Mary... More
