Went to a small wedding here and was seated near the door leading into the kitchen area. We could hear our servers making rude remarks about the guests from the interior. It went on and on throughout the entire event. Wow. That's the reason they expected a big tip no doubt!! The bride and groom did not know about this, and we weren't about to tell them, but I would NEVER have a wedding here, or advise anyone else to. Fake hospitality is not hospitality. That, and the place is dirty.

Hubby and I enjoyed an overnight stay on Monday of Thanksgiving week, a mini celebration for his 70th birthday. What a delightful time we had. It was quiet and the Inn felt as if it were almost our own. Like history? This is the place - in the middle of Colonial America - with Concord, Lexington and other famous places nearby, the Wayside Inn would make an excellent base from which to explore. Did I mention dinner? Delicious! Since we were there during Thanksgiving week, we took advantage of their specials that week and enjoyed a three-course dinner (appetizer, entree, dessert) for $29.99. Our choice? The prime rib, of course - something we never eat at home. The tavern was cozy, with delicious wine in front of a roaring fire, and our 4-postered bed snuggly warm on a chilly night. The room was spacious and comfortable, the staff friendly and very helpful, and breakfast the next morning (part of our very reasonable room rate) was yummy...any entree off the menu with no restrictions. All in all, an outstanding stay and one we'd do again.

We stayed at this inn because of a family connection to the original owners. We were very pleased to find the inn in a spectacular setting, with many acres of surrounding woods, streams, historic buildings and natural beauty. We stayed in one of the oldest rooms, and while it was spacious and comfortable and fascinating, the very narrow and twisting wooden stairway made taking up luggage a real challenge. On the other hand, the staff were exceedingly helpful, and the breakfast selection was amazing. The dinner was, however, not as good as we would have expected, and the dishes varied from not so good to OK. We'd recommend going there for the grounds, the history and the breakfast.

Room Tip: Think carefully about requesting a historic room if you are going to have large pieces of luggage and would have difficulty getting them up the stairs.

I try to visit the Wayside Inn as often as I can for both the food, the drink and the experience. A National Historic Landmark located less than an hour from downtown Boston, this place will take you back in time! Imagine dining and sipping a "Coow Woow", America's oldest cocktail (Google it) with one of our nation's founders! The menu offers tasty traditional American comfort food, served in a communal dining area, along with Coow Woows and other period and contemporary libations in an actual museum / New England country inn. A fireplace fire rounds it all out on a cold winter evening. There is little gift shop on the premises and be sure to tour the premises while waiting for your meal. Reservations are highly recommended.

We stayed at the Wayside Inn for one night in our stay -- they are a good deal for historic digs with a full breakfast (any delicious choice from their menu), but they were booked for the rest of our visit to MA. The Inn is both museum, restaurant, tavern and B&B on rolling acres of historic land that includes an old (operating) mill and a church. If you are going for dinner, ask for seating in one of the historic rooms (we especially like the tavern), as a nothing-special modern dining room has been added on. It was nice NOT to have televisions in the room, though the "guest sitting room" is a charming little room with a flat panel and a game/puzzle table. My son had to study for tests much of the time we were there, and there were several open spaces upstairs with seating and tables. I wandered from one historic gathering room to another -- imagining the Fezziwigs holding their annual Christmas party -- CHARMING.

Room Tip: Some rooms face east -- it's a beautiful sunrise if you're up for it!
