Yet the Wayside Inn is safely located in the tranquil hills of Ellicott City on two acres of landscaped property, with a beautiful pond amid mature trees(one White Oak certified to have been standing at the signing of the U.S Constitution)and stunning gardens.

Because we didn't want to have to travel a long distance to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary, we decided to stay at the Wayside Inn Bed & Breakfast, having read many excellent reviews for it over the years. It more than lived up to its excellent reputation. Our hosts were very helpful in providing suggestions about what to see in the area and where to dine, and they made us feel very welcome. We absolutely want to return.

Our stay at the Wayside Inn was again a step into the quaint and peaceful atmosphere of rustic days gone by, yet filled with the amenities of our modern day life. The antique looks have been preserved and offer a glimpse of the past. And yet the hot tub, rain shower, iPhone hookup for personal music, coffee and tea on demand - all add to the dynamics of this beautiful inn. The breakfast meals are presented with the same expert care with which they are prepared. With all of these settings it is only natural to forget all stresses of everyday life and lose ourselves in the ambiance of this wonderful inn.

Nearby gourmet restaurants. Despite its proximity, no noise was heard from Route 29.

The house is beautiful and the owners were so friendly and welcoming. The accommodations were wonderful. Our room had a classic feel with a modern bathroom complete with a jacuzzi. The fire place had a log ready for us to burn. The breakfast was delicious and still health conscious. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast for anyone visiting ellicott city.
