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!

We left the baby with the babysitter and celebrated a kid-free overnight here. Although we only live half an hour away, it truly felt like a vacation here! The room was beautiful and the bathroom was spacious. (loved the jacuzzi tub, too!) The owners were super-friendly and hospitable. And the breakfast was absolutely delicious. We appreciated the 9:30am breakfast time - a lot of places stop serving at 9, and the extra half hour really made a difference - true luxury. We'll definitely be back next time we get the chance to leave our baby with the sitter!

My wife and I stayed at Wayside in on December 30, checked out on New Year's Eve, had a great time. The owner David is a great host, the Inn has every amenity in your room you could you could hope for...the fresh made coffee machine conveniently located for guess has seemingly unlimited flavors. Great creative breakfast and the luxury of staying in a 200+ year old home/Inn, RBeasley Silver Spring MD

We arrived for an impromptu holiday getaway between visits to family. David, the proprietor welcomed us warmly after our rush hour commute. There were even cookies waiting and he upgraded our room since it was Christmas. The jacuzzi was exactly what we needed, as was sitting on the couch in the common area in front of the fire to relax before dinner. Soft music, beautiful lighting, period furniture. It was like stepping back in time, but also having great wireless! The breakfast was amazing and we were encouraged to express any food aversions, so I think anyone needing a special menu would be in for a treat. I would recommend this b&b to anyone looking for a romantic getaway. It's also 2 easy miles from downtown where you can eat delicious food and buy some nice wine for your room.

We recently stayed for two nights at The Wayside Inn to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Dave is a wonderful, cordial host, and everything was simply outstanding including the breakfast. Of the many B & B's we have visited, this one ranks #1. Everything was exactly what one would expect from an inn on both the Select Registry and in the Diamond Collection of BedandBreakfast.com. We hope to make many joyous returns. Ron & Karen Parker/Moorestown, NJ

Grand Marnier Fench Toast
A delicious breakfast dish with hand sliced egg challah bread which has been soaked in a mixture of eggs, cream, and orange liqueur. It is served piping hot with an Orange Rum Sauce to pour over the top. We usually accompany this with a smoked chicken and apple sausage. A guest favorite at the Wayside Inn!
