About

The Wayside Inn is an historic Bed and Breakfast nearby historic Ellicott City, the site of the first railway station in the United States. The Inn is within minutes of art galleries, museums, antique shops and award winning restaurants. It is a short hop to downtown Baltimore or to catch the Metro into exciting Washington, D.C., with all those cities have to offer. 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. In the past few months the owners have completely renovated the second floor adding private baths with Jacuzzi style tubs to some rooms and adding a brand new Luxury suite. Your Comfort is our Passion!

Thank you for everything! Terrific stay. Room was very clean and comfy. Great location close to baltimore, dc and fredrick. Historic charm meets comforts of today. NAlso very quiet and relaxing too.


Wonderful overnight

4.4 on November 16, 2014

We were able to stay just one overnight at this lovely Bed and Breakfast. It is a lovely home, beautifully decorated and well kept. The owners were wonderful hosts and breakfast was delicious. David and Susan went out of their way to accommodate our late arrival, which we truly appreciated.


Wonderful Stay

The owners were very accommodating to our requests and made us feel like we were staying with old friends. Had a wonderful time.


Historic Building, but hospitality could be improved...

2.8 on October 28, 2014

The Wayside Inn is a historic home in Ellicot City, MD that offers tons of history, unfortunately unless you read about it the Innkeeper will only give you a very brief summary. The Inn offers five unique and beautiful rooms, which feature cable tv and comfortable bedding. As expected in a home this age, the floors and step squeak, but this adds to charm. We stayed in the Pierpoint Suite, which is the original master bedroom of the home and offers a comfortable sitting room and large bathroom with two person jetted shower. The bed is a bit high, but a step stool is provided. The first floor is beautiful, with the exception of the kitchen which the Innkeepers have some personal belongings. There are a few minor maintenance issues. With a few hours of work, and some additional hospitality training this Inn could be the gem of Ellicot City.


Missed David and Susan

One of our favorite parts about the Wayside Inn has always been our interaction with David and Susan, the innkeepers. Their presence would have made our weekend more perfect.


A pleasant overnight get away

My mom and two friends from out of town shared Betty's Suite and it was perfect! The surroundings were relaxing, David was such a gracious host, and the breakfast was delicious.

Pinpoint Room (9/6/14)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wayside Inn Bed & Breakfast. David greeted us upon our arrival and was a fantastic host. We would most definitely stay at Wayside again if we find ourselves in the Baltimore area.


A Nice Time

4.0 on September 09, 2014

It was one of the nicer B & Bs, though the location is not quite as quaint as I had expected. A very busy highway and sound wall are across the street. Beyond that, the house and yard are beautiful; and the breakfast, superb.
