We stayed at the Wayside Inn for two nights over the 4th of July weekend 2014. The location was terrific as we attended the Justin Townes Earle concert at the Colonial Theater on Friday evening. Before we left for the concert, we enjoyed a fine home cooked dinner. I loved the poached trout! It was flavorful with a nice sauce... More

We had a great stay at The Wayside Inn during June 2014.We came to New Hampshire to walk in the White Mountains and this Inn is perfectly located between the Crawford and the Franconia Notches. Crawford Notch visitor centre is 14 miles away and the carpark for Cannon Mountain in Franconia Notch a similar distance away. From the moment we... More

You have to spend a night here to understand what "unwinding" can truly mean. Do not come here if you want fitness centers, a 24 hour manned lobby, flat screen TV and an in room refrigerator. Do not stay here if your idea of a relaxing get away is acting like you are at home, when you are away. Do... More

We stayed at the inn Sunday, May 25. The setting is beautiful. There's a river that runs behind the inn. The room was clean and inviting. We only had time to stay one night, but we are planning to return.

We had dinner at the Wayside Inn because we heard that there was a trained Swiss chef and when we travel to Switzerland we always enjoy the food ! We come to this area often mainly for the skiing and hiking and it is not always easy to find a restaurant with more than average fare or you can search... More

We have been staying at The Wayside Inn for years. It is always a pleasure to be there. Innkeepers Kathe and Victor are welcoming and tidy. Victor's cooking is excellent for breakfast and dinner. The inn itself, old and comfortable, is just outside Bethlehem, breathtakingly quiet, and near Bretton Woods for cross-country and downhill skiing, the Rocks for mapling, and... More

We have been coming to the Wayside Inn for many years. It is now like visiting warm and accommodating old friends who keep an immaculate house. The inn is clean and comfortable. We usually stay in the same room which has a great view of the river. We appreciate the lack of a TV in the room. For those who... More

We spent the night of Oct. 7,2013 at The Wayside Inn. I can honestly say it's the worst place we've every stayed throughout the United States. We should have just left, but since it was peak season for the fall color, we were sure everything was full. We made our reservation in March of last year because of the wonderful... More

We stayed at the Wayside Inn at the beginning of our vacation and once more at the end. The beds in both rooms were very comfortable. There is a certain charm to this inn, with the antique dressers and chairs in the bedrooms. On our first stay we were in a room with a king size four poster bed with... More
