Located on a lovely tree lined street with a grist mill down the road and a lovely chapel too, the Wayside Inn is absolutely worth a visit. Lunched there today with 2 friends. Had a delicious salad for lunch with some fresh and warm hot cider. I have been to the Inn many times and always enjoy the history of... More

We stayed overnight at the Wayside Inn for our anniversary, it was a pleasant stay. The room was comfortable, the bed was great, my wife slept like a baby. We referred to the room as rustic, with what I presume are either antiques or reproductions. We had both dinner and breakfast while there. When seated, they give you Melba toast... More

Two years ago, I stayed at the Fairfield Inn. At the time, the Fairfield was a sister inn to the Wayside Inn, and I had breakfast at the Wayside Inn. I was charmed by the Wayside, so this time, I decided to stay at the Wayside Inn. I was not disappointed. ACCOMODATIONS The room is furnished as I expected for... More

The Wayside Inn is a New England institution. I have dined there a number of times thru the years, most recently a week ago. I give it five stars for its location on what seems like a private lane thru New England's beautiful countryside. Five stars too for its historic building and intriguing smaller dining rooms. But problems lower the... More

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colonial site, in operation since before the revolution, and modern recreation that works as a functional Inn and a historical reference in equal measure.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