First time eating back at The Wayside Inn in many years. The new ownes are delightful. The food was great and the atmosphere was quaint and warm. They let us take a tour of the rooms upstairs when we got done eating. I am so glad this is back in operation. We plan to eat there in the near future.... More

Had a great stay, comfortable bed, excellent food, outstanding peanut soup and delightful hosts. Couldn't ask for a more enjoyable weekend. Used the Inn as the basis for side trips to Winchester and the country-side.

If you like history, four poster beds, antique furniture, creaky wooden floors, and a friendly staff that treats you like family, this is a place for you. Each room is unique. The halls wander up and down and around. We kept expecting to hear the clip clop of horses outside. For readers there are lots of classic books to pull... More

Arrived in Middletown in the middle of the night after a long drive from Connecticut. The Wayside Inn jumped out as the place to stay. No corporate script; just great personalized hospitality in a setting that no corporate hotel could ever hope to duplicate. There is nothing like sleeping in a massive early 19th century bed on a modern mattress... More

This hotel is a heritage property so don't expect modern finishes. However, it is clean and the rooms have the amenities expected of a modern hotel. The wifi was a bit variable in our room but high speed in the public areas. There is a tavern and restaurant on site. The hot breakfast was generous and filling. The hosts were... More

We were fortunate enough to spend a night at the Wayside Inn recently. The place is drenched in history, but beautifully maintained. Our room was tastefully and comfortably decorated and the innkeepers, Becky and George, were so very nice and helpful. It's a great place to stay while viewing the local history (Cedar Creek Battlefield, Belle Grove, etc.). We had... More

After searching high and low for the perfect place for our Leadership Retreat, we settled on the Wayside Inn because of its unique charm and the unbeatable prices. Becky, George and their staff are marvelous hosts and let us completely take over the place. Not only did they let us set up the rooms early but they anticipated our every... More

My wife and I held our wedding and reception at Wayside in July. The old world charm of the inn was a perfect fit as well as the food and accommodations. We were there for 2 days along with some of our family and guests. George & Becky...and all the staff worked to make everything come together successfully. I would... More

My wife and I ate here yesterday at the yard crawl event. They said it was a Lucy and Desi tribute. The girl dressed liked Lucy did not even know her maiden name which was Magillacutte. They asked if anyone could play the bongos which no one could. They played old Lucy videos on a paper screen. This was bad... More

Hi Richard.....we really appreciate your thoughtful review and are very disappointed you had a negative experience with us. Rest assured....we will use this as a learning experience for myself and our staff. Our guiding principal here at Wayside Inn and Larrick's Tavern is "complete satisfaction" of every customer. If you will be so kind as to contact me (George) directly,... More
