“Best bed and breakfast ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

I stayed at the Wayside Inn for my Best friends wedding and everything was fabulous! The innkeepers Dave and Susan are very accomodating and are wonderful people! Breakfast was amazing and the rooms were a delight! I strongly recommend that anyone stays here!

After much searching for a wedding venue that suited our needs, my fiance and I accidentally stumbled on the Wayside Inn-- and it was the best thing that happened to us! The owners, Susan and Dave, are extremely accommodating, the venue is charming and elegant, and the breakfast is outstanding! The inn is historic and also full of natural beauty and interesting features, as well as modern luxury (especially in the bathrooms). My husband and I invited 30 people to our beautiful, intimate wedding at the inn, and it was everything we wanted. If you're looking for a venue that truly feels like "home," that offers both charm and comfort, the Wayside is it. Pretty sure I heard the word "perfect" tossed around a few times after the ceremony :).

I've stayed at many B&B's and The Wayside Inn is top notch. Beautiful historic inn -rooms are pretty, comfortable, and clean, with every amenity you could possibly need. Breakfast is AMAZING! SO AMAZING! The innkeepers are friendly, kind and accommodating. Will definitely be back again!

From the moment we arrived at the Inn we knew we were going to be treated to a wonderful time, the innkeepers were wonderful, engaging, funny, charming and knowlegeable, the Inn is incrediby charming, the attention to detail is everywhere you look from the incredible bathrooms to the finials on the top of the laps to the creaky, charming floors - the sun deck is magical and the breakfast is fabulous - you must go just for the quiet and calm!

Room Tip: We had the room with the windows facing the sun deck and the room was filled with light

We took a chance on a Groupon and we're so glad we did. Disclaimer: this was our first B&B, so we didn't know what to expect, but we were so delighted with our stay in the Ellicott room. It's an incredibly charming place, the owner is astonishingly friendly and helpful (he made a great recommendation for dinner, made our reservations and drove us into town because he knew parking would be tight), breakfast was wonderful (scones with jam, baked grapefruit and a generous cut of blueberry almond baked French toast flanked by sausage), the sheets are what? 20,000 thread count? I'm going to be reminiscing about those sheets for a long time.

The bathroom itself was a huge draw, with a jetted garden tub, large tiled shower, ample lighting, ample vanity with chair and two thick white robes tucked in the closet. We didn't take advantage of the Fios or wireless internet, but I appreciated the bottled water in the room and the single cup coffee/hot chocolate machine outside our door. Next time we'd like to check in earlier to take advantage of the library, sun room and sitting room.

Overall, we left feeling relaxed, happy and well-fed.

The beds were amazing!!! The floors creak a lot but it's very charming and comfortable. The inn sitter was a member of the innkeepers and she was wonderful! Breakfast was gourmet and delicious!

My husband and I live in a near by town but just wanted to get away for the week end and chose The Wayside. I was a bit disappointed that the house was so close to the main highway but once inside I did not see or hear the traffic. The bed was very comfortable, the jacuzzi was delightful and my husband enjoyed the rain forest like shower. The breakfast was good but did lack the extras we have had at many b&b's. All in all we had a very nice stay.
