Wedding night!

5 on November 10, 2017

My son and his new bride spent their wedding night here. They were upgraded, and loved the jacuzzi in their room! They loved the breakfast and appreciated the late checkout. They said that it was beautiful, the hosts were wonderful and they had a much needed get away.

Charming B&B with Great Hosts

5 on November 06, 2017

Charming Victorian with a ton of character in a great location managed by gracious hosts. That is how we would sum up our experience at the Wayne B&B. My husband and I have traveled extensively across the country, and we have opted to choose a B&B over a hotel most of the time when traveling for leisure. We can safely say this was the best B&B experience so far, while we have plenty to compare with. A well maintained historical house with great attention to detail in a walking distance to the main street with a number of nice restaurants. Our room and en-suite bathroom were immaculate and full of nice little touches. Living room, dining room and the library were tastefully furnished and felt like home. Bob and Traudi were very welcoming and accommodating every step of the way. Breakfast was delicious and served in a great setting. Maddy, the resident bulldog, was such a delight - so well behaved, she could have sent our two professionally trained labrador retrievers to school. We would certainly recommend the Wayne B&B to anyone looking for a comfortable and home-like place to stay around Philly or Lancaster area.

Highly recommend this lovely B and B.

My stay at the Wayne Bed and Breakfast was delightful. The Mr. And Ms. Thomason were welcoming, friendly and accommodating. The house and grounds are beautiful, my room and en suite bathroom were spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was healthy, varied and yummy. They really made me feel like they were glad I was their guest. I definitely recommend it and would be happy to return. Kathleen Oakland, California

Comfortable and convenient

Enjoyed the proximity to town, a refreshing dip in the pool, great breakfast, clean room and congenial hosts.

Charming B&B in a Fabulous Location

5 on June 26, 2017

First off, the B&B owner's, Bob and Traudi genuinely love what they do and this happiness and hospitality is extended to their guests. Their home was built in 1790, yet it is filled with light and beautiful furniture and art pieces. The grounds surrounding the home have some specimen trees and the large 55 ft. long pool was an unexpected sight.Our room was on the second floor overlooking the gardens, and it was huge and strewn with light. We had an extended hallway and then a double sink bathroom for our use. Breakfast was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting around the large dining table meeting the other guests. The home is in a great location in Wayne on the Main Line, and very accessible to all points, including the airport when we needed to leave.

Wonderful stay while attending Villanova reunion weekend

5 on June 11, 2017

My wife and I had a wonderful weekend here while attending the Villanova reunion. The home and grounds are beautiful and Bob and Traudi are terrific hosts. We loved how quiet the location is, yet minutes from downtown Wayne and Villanova. We highly recommend the Wayne B&B!

A Perfect Stay

5 on June 11, 2017

My husband is retired from the hospitality business and he possesses an innate gift of choosing impeccable vacation accommodations across the United States. Lucky for me, he found the Wayne Bed & Breakfast Inn, 211 Stafford Avenue in Wayne, Pennsylvania, for a Memorial Day weekend retreat. Proprietors Bob and Traudi Thomason provided a perfect setting for relaxing and taking the time to smell the roses, thanks to Traudi’s remarkable gardening skills. And then there is Maddie Thomason, an endearing and gracious English Bulldog that loves people and makes guests feel as if they are staying with old friends. If you are traveling to southeastern Pennsylvania or Philadelphia’s Mainline, please check out the Wayne Bed & Breakfast. It is a quiet place to stay that is just a few minutes away from great shopping and restaurants, such as At The Table and Christopher’s. Lynn and Harry - 2017

Eclectic Opulence in Wayne, PA

4.2 on May 29, 2017

This was a fun place to stay; I really enjoyed it but must hasten to say normally these rates are out of my price range. Bob is a born innkeeper and could not do enough to make my visit wonderful. The second floor suite is divine! Never had better oatmeal, either. Maddy the Greeter, a bulldog, is a treasure -- a lovely, calm dog who politely accepted an apple treat. Within walking distance of shops and whatever you need; very quiet neighborhood. Beautiful garden; nice looking pool. Transportation to airport, train, etc. can be easily arranged and is reasonably priced.


5 on May 14, 2017

We stayed one night before our Daughter's graduation at Haverford. Was a great decision. A restful and quiet night's sleep in an heavenly bed in the Valley Forge Room. Spacious private bath and of course Maddie the Bulldog. The house is fascinating and filled with many unique pieces....the living room set is incredible. Wish it was not raining so we could have enjoyed spring in the garden. Bob made an incredible Breakfast, even with all my dietary needs and our early departure. Best scrambled eggs ever. He is an incredible story teller and host. The Inn is close to downtown Wayne and restaurants not to be missed.

Innkeeper Response
Katy & Mike, I short but sweet stay, and so gracious. Thank you for shuttling our other Haverford mother to graduation. Thank you, so much. Bob

Peaceful Weekend

The Wayne B&B offers a tranquil respite from the suburban surroundings. The house and grounds are spacious, and the inn keepers are warm and hospitable. Enjoyed my stay!

Felt like family!

I stayed at the Wayne B&B while I was at company training for a week since I wanted a more homey experience, and that was exactly what I got! Bob and Traudi were so incredibly warm! The house is gorgeous, the surrounding neighborhood lovely, and the hospitality at the Wayne B&B was unparalleled! I highly recommend it!

Wayne Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on November 21, 2016

My husband and I had a delightful stay here. The hosts were extremely gracious and made us feel welcome in the lovely 1870s home they've converted into the bed and breakfast.

So Lovely!

5 on November 14, 2016

As sophisticated travelers we sought a perfect inn near Bryn Mawr, and we found it in the Wayne B&B Inn. Innkeeper Bob Thomason could not be more welcoming, warm, competent or thoughtful, and "our" room, the Wicker Room, is a haven of peace that feels like a dreamy return to a country house with gardens and comfort in a time gone by. Furnished in white with cozy touches and an enormous, downy king bed, the room has two walls of almost floor to ceiling windows looking out on gardens in which birds sing. Spring in that room, with a blooming mature pink magnolia bursting right outside the window, alone is worth a trip. The Inn is beautiful, furnished carefully with antiques and conveniences with an eye towards comfort and welcome for its guests. Max, the rotund English bulldog whose bed is in front of the fireplace and who sports pajamas on occasion, is always ready to chase sticks with delight or lean in for pets and lovin'. Breakfast is gracious and Bob is happy to accommodate any request. The Inn is 20 minutes from Bryn Mawr and 25 minutes from downtown Philadelphia. Wayne is choc-o-bloc with cute local restaurants (try the Diner for a blast from the past!) and stores. Welcome home.

Innkeeper Response
It is so nice to have return guests, that continue to make us try harder and hopefully achieve your high standards. Such a gracious guest and Thank you

Very Accommodating and Lovely Hosts

Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating for our special request. The B&B is very clean, beautiful and charming. We hope to return one day!

A wonderful place to stay and share time!

5 on August 21, 2016

Everything was wonderful! The room was beautiful and clean. Our host and hostess were so kind and welcoming! The food was delicious! My daughter and I enjoyed our stay so much! I highly recommend!

Lovely place to stay any time of year

5 on August 19, 2016

What a lovely B&B owned by friendly and gracious hosts who are knowledgeable about the area, and enjoy being helpful. We stayed during the hot summer and the pool was refreshing, the gardens delightful. Please listen to Bob & Trudy's dining suggestions; they really know the best spots. And don't miss Chanticleer Gardens; an unusual treasure. Oh, and another great thing: they went out of their way to accommodate my dietary restrictions. We plan to return . T&T

Innkeeper Response
Hi T&T, You were the best...always our pleasure to serve you. Cannot wait to see you again. T&B

- Bob Thomason (innkeeper)

An excellent extended stay experience!

5 on August 08, 2016

I had the pleasure of staying at Bob and Traudi's B&B at the end of July for several days, and I must admit that I enjoyed it more than any previous extended stay experience I have had in the last ten years. I have stayed at several four and five star hotels, but absolutely nothing compares to the comforts of home that one can find at Wayne B&B. Bob and Traudi were very accommodating! I cannot wait to visit them again!

Innkeeper Response
Michael: Thank you so much for your wonderful words. You were a gracious guest..we look forward to your return.

- Bob Thomason (innkeeper)

Just a wonderful B and B

5 on August 01, 2016

This is a lovely and tranquil place to stay. The location, grounds, house, Innkeepers and four-legged companion all are just warm and welcoming. The tlc and graciousness are very apparent from the moment one arrives. We had a absolutely wonderful stay at this beautiful B and B. We just loved it!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your great and wonderful words. Both of you were exceptional guests, that we were so happy to meet.

Relaxing stay

4.6 on June 28, 2016

I wanted a visit that was comfortable and relaxing. The Wayne B&B provided both. I plan to stay here again when I travel to this area again next year.

Convenience, charm, and hospitality...

4.8 on June 21, 2016

Travelers to the leafy Mainline town of Wayne have the choice of bedding down in one of several large, impersonal hotels — or their antithesis: the charming Wayne Bed and Breakfast Inn, a rambling, restful, and lovingly restored old home owned and run by Bob and Traudi Thomason. This exceptionally friendly couple are the very model of gracious and helpful hosts. To enter the Inn is to step back into a bygone era of carved dark-wood furniture, of overstuffed leather sofas, of big four-poster beds, of conversation rather than TV, and, most importantly, of the sort of old-time, accommodating hospitality that every bit matches the period decor. Without asking, we were upgraded to a larger room with a lavishly appointed bathroom fit for a pasha; with no hesitation we were granted our request to invite a friend over for breakfast the following morning (breakfast, incidentally, featured wonderfully prepared omelettes, croissants, and all the trimmings). Visitors to the Inn are sure to meet house dog and official greeter Maddie, a lumbering female English bulldog, who, though resembling gruff Winston Churchill, behaved with the good manners and gentle restraint of Queen Elizabeth; we found it impossible not to fall in love with her. And finally, it would be hard to imagine a more convenient location than the Inn’s. From there it’s an easy jaunt to the White Dog Cafe for dinner or, for trekkers, to the nearby Radnor Trail to walk off some of the excess calories. In sum, we enjoyed a delightful stay at the Inn and hope to return on our next visit to the area.

Banana pancakes

5 on April 26, 2016

Traudi & Bob treated us like family. Banana pancakes Mmmm ! Antiques are beautiful. The April garden was starting to bloom and beautiful. I practiced Tai Chi in the garden. Wow ! Great stay. Max & MarieLou

We love our visits here!

4.8 on March 25, 2016

A wonderful B&B to visit outside of the Philadelphia area. We enjoy our stays there with delicious breakfasts and wonderful hospitality! We love to try different rooms each visit and have loved every one. Thank you as always and we will see you again in a few months!

Charming B&B

5 on March 14, 2016

We really enjoyed our stay on Valentine's weekend! It was the coldest day of the year, but it was warm inside. Many shops and dining within walking distance. Our hosts were very gracious, and the breakfast atmosphere with the other guests was very nice. We would definitely go back!

Gracious hosts and a lovely home!

5 on March 11, 2016

Our stay at the Wayne B&B Inn was quite relaxing. Our hosts were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. There were several other guests, but it did not feel crowded with the comfortable spaces and rooms throughout the house. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts were accommodating to a variety of tastes and even vegetarian pallets. We would recommend this B&B to anyone.

Innkeeper Response
We always appreciate the time and effort of sending a review, and thank you for the positive words. A lively breakfast is always a delight.

5 on February 15, 2016

My daughter and I visited Villanova for a college visit. We immensely enjoyed our stay at the Wayne Bed & Breakfast. Room was charming. Breakfast, delicious. It's conveniently located a few miles from Villanova. The B&B is also a short walking distance to a strip with restaurants and shops. We enjoyed our dinner at Christopher's. Can't wait to go back! Thanks Traudi & Bob for a nice experience.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate the time and effort to do this. BTW, your photo was our all time highest 'reach' and Likes. See you in September for Parents Weekend. Bob

Visit September 2015

5 on September 22, 2015

This was definitely the best B&B we have visited - the house was amazing and meticulously furnished. The hosts were extremely warm and willing to do anything to help where they could. The accomodations were great - we both slept very well and it was very quiet What puts this over the top is their amazing bulldog - Very friendly (but doesn't jump) and fun to watch all of her antics. Thanks for a great experience

Wonderful hospitality!

5 on September 15, 2015

Traudi and Bob are wonderful hosts! Delicious breakfasts, beautiful grounds, and very friendly guests were encountered! We had lots of laughs as well as restful times sitting on the front porch! We have family that lives right in the area, but why stay with them when we can be pampered and spoiled here!


5 on August 20, 2015

Lovely accomodations with charming hosts. Our new home away from home!

Lovely Bed and Breakfast

Wonderful Hospitality and location

4.4 on April 27, 2015

We had a wonderful time during our short stay at Wayne Bed & Breakfast thanks to the warm welcome by Bob and his wife. They welcomed us upon our arrival, made us reservations at the perfect place for dinner, were available for our every need, kind, and thoughtful. Bob made us a delicious breakfast in the morning. Chatted with our children. It was all around a good experience. Our beds were comfortable. It was like being in a home away from home and we hope to return one day. Wayne is a charming town with fun shopping and restaurants.

Truly Beautiful Inn and Great Experience

4.8 on October 20, 2014

We made reservations at this B&B based on the website and were pleasantly surprised at how the stay met our expectations. We were greeted by the owners who were gracious hosts. They showed us to a beautiful room with a view of the fall leaves changing colors and treated us to a home-cooked breakfast in the morning. It is very nice of them to open their home to lucky guests like us! Hope to stay there again soon!

Great Hosts!

4.6 on October 08, 2014

Our stay was very pleasant. The room was clean & comfortable, and Bob gave great recommendations on where to go for dinner. Unfortunately, because we stayed over Sunday night, the town was mostly closed by 4pm. Otherwise, it's a charming place (inn & town) to visit. I'd like to come back in warmer weather and really enjoy the grounds. They served us the English breakfast and what a feast it was! Delicious!

Conversation and Hospitality

4.6 on September 22, 2014

I was in town for Parents Weekend. My husband could not come at the last minute. I was lucky to have booked this lovely B&B. Bob and Traudi were welcoming and I felt right at home. I was spoiled with conversation and hospitality. I hope to make this a Parents Weekend tradition.

Can't wait to stay there again!

5 on July 28, 2014

The Wayne Bed and Breakfast Inn was beautiful. It was classy with antique yet comfortable furniture, yet still had the air conditioning, private bathroom, and all the amenities of the 21st century. The bed was perhaps the most comfortable bed I have EVER slept in - including my own. Breakfast was made to order through conversation of learning exactly what we like and the coffee was simply excellent. Most B&Bs of this age are creaky, overgrown with ivy, and even smell old. The Wayne B&B is maintained in a pristine manner (you even take off your shoes when entering) and everything was spotless and fresh. Even the landscaping looked like it was out of Better Homes and Gardens. Traudi & Bob Thomason are the Innkeepers and they are wonderful hosts. One the best points of our stay was just sitting and talking with Bob about 'things' - our lives and his life. He's a very interesting and intelligent gentleman. I can't wait to create an excuse for us to stay there again.

Innkeeper Response
The best part of being a B&B Innkeeper are the Guests, especially the ones that engage in discussions and are eager to learn about our wonderful area. I look forward to our next conversation.

Great Customer Service

5 on June 03, 2014

Our church had a client flying in that needed special local accommodations that made him feel welcomed and at home. Also, permitted him to walk to local restaurants and businesses so he could explore the area and get to know the people. Wayne B&B was perfect. It is a beautiful Inn, located in a residential neighborhood but convenient to local businesses. During the busiest time of year Main Line Horse Show) Bob was very accommodating and maintained communication through out the reservation. I appreciated the personal customer service. Thank you Truadi and Bob!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you, Mary. It was a great pleasure to work with you and your candidate was very enjoyable. Bob

Just Perfect

5 on November 22, 2013

My wife and I spent 2 nights in November at Wayne B&B. We loved it. Perfect place for a short getaway. Bob was a great host. Beautiful room, very comfortable bed, & delicious breakfast provided. Lots to do in area. We enjoyed local shops, walking the Radnor Trail, & several good restaurants. Short drive to Valley Forge National Park & King of Prussia Mall. We will be back.


4.6 on November 06, 2013

I often go to Wayne on business. I got tired of the local hotels and decided to try the Wayne Bed and Breakfast and I am so glad that I did. The overall facility is lovely, the rooms are very nice and Bob and Traudi could not be nicer. I will be back!

October visit

5 on October 21, 2013

This is a truly beautiful place, with easy access to Philadelphia as well as Valley Forge Park, Chanticleer Gardens, lots of dining options. Bob and Traudi are wonderful hosts and fine chefs! We'll definitely be back!

Spectacular weekend!

5 on August 20, 2013

My family had 2 celebrations at the Wayne B&B Inn over the 8/17-8/18 weekend. Saturday night 8 of us (all women) celebrated a wedding shower for my niece. Sunday morning the groom to be and a handful of other male family and friends joined us for a special brunch as we witnessed the signing of the Ketubah, which is a Jewish wedding ceremony. Traudi and Bob, the Innkeepers could not have been more kind, accommodating, or charming. They did everything possible to help make the weekend wonderful and memorable. And they succeeded beyond measure! The bedrooms were extremely comfortable, clean and spacious. The pool setting was beautiful and relaxing for sitting and chatting. The living area where we held the shower festivities was perfectly warm and wonderful. The brunch for 13 of us was absolutely scrumptious! The Inn was a perfect setting for the bride to have a wedding shower and for the bride and groom to have their special wedding ceremony! I can't wait to visit the Inn again soon! Also, for any out-of-towners who aren't familiar with the location - it is an awesome location with nearby gardens, day spas, restaurants, parks, etc.

Wonderful stay

5 on August 10, 2013

Traudi and Bob were exemplary hosts during our visit in July. The location was perfect, the property and facilities were beautiful and the service was second to none, while remaining personable and inspired throughout our stay. I recommend Wayne B&B to anyone seeking lodging on the Main Line, and will definitely stay there the next time I'm in town.

Wonderful stay!

4.8 on July 23, 2013

April, 2013 So sorry for the delayed review. We had a wonderful stay - the host and hostess could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The rooms were spotless and the breakfast delicious. Looking forward to return visits.

Wayne B&B Inn

5 on June 19, 2013

We stayed at Wayne B&B Inn for four days in June 2013 attending the U. S. Open. We could not have been more pleased. Traudi and Bob Thomason were absolutely delightful hosts--warm, accommodating, caring--just an absolutely beautiful couple. Great breakfasts! Large,comfy rooms! Beautiful grounds! Wayne is within walking distance of the train, several very nice restaurants, and other attractions and only 5'-15' by car to still other points of interest. We fell in love with Traudi on our very first telephone conversation inquiry, took the plunge, and don't regret for a moment the decision to stay with them. We recommend the Wayne B&B Inn without reservation. Diane and Larry Lorton

Beautiful place; Great Owners

5 on April 12, 2013

I had the opportunity to stay at the Wayne Bed and Breakfast for two days in April, 2013. The house is extremely beautiful. The area around the house is very peaceful and quiet, surrounded by other beautiful houses and many trees. The air is fresh and you will feel rejuvenated during your stay. Although you are so close to nature, the stores and restaurants are not far away at all. The Main Line is just two blocks away; the downtown area of Wayne is only a 15-minute walk away. One thing that is impossible to forget is the hospitality of the owners Traudi and Bob. On the night of my arrival, my co-worker and I had to arrive late due to train/work schedule. Despite the fact that we arrived much later than expected, Traudi and Bob greeted us warmly at the door, she also offered us candies and gave us a quick tour of the house. Traudi asked of our morning schedules and when we would like breakfast to be served before we headed to bed. The food at the bed and breakfast is simply amazing. In the first mornings, I was served ham, home made corn muffins, biscuits home-made jam and fresh basil, cheese and tomato omelet. There was also plain greek yogurt with granola and banana pancakes with real maple syrup. Everything served at the breakfast table was heavenly all thanks to Traudi's passion for good and healthy food. My experience at Waye Bed and Breakfast was exceptional. With all the good food, the extremely considerate and friendly owners and the tastefully decorated house, I really enjoyed my stay. There is really nothing bad to say about this establishment. This is where I will stay from now on when I visit the area. Highly recommended!

Fantastic Wayne Bed and Breakfast Inn

5 on March 21, 2013

I highly recommed Waye B&B Inn. Traudi and Bob are wonderful hosts. They provided us a most delicious breakfast in their beautiful dinning room. I am a local resident but I couldn't wait to stay at the B&B for a "mini-getaway". This is the perfect setting for bridal parties & pictures. The interior and exterior of their home is stunning. I also believe their home to be the perfect overnight stay for business guests attending business on the main line. Their home would accommodate the business planning meetings that are typically held in a conference center setting. My young boys enjoyed it as well. They loved everything from reading by the warm fire, hot chocolate for breakfast and every quaint detail that comes along with this beautiful home.

Wonderful stay

4.0 on January 02, 2013

We spent 5 wonderful nights at the Wayne Bed & Breakfast Inn in mid-December while visiting our daughter in Wayne. Bob and Traudi are very welcoming and friendly hosts. All the breakfasts were delicious (the pancakes and French toast were the best we ever had). The bed in our room was so comfortable it was hard to get up in the morning. On our last morning, they kindly invited our daughter to join us for breakfast (banana and chocolate chip pancakes). We look forward to future visits.

Wonderful Wayne B&B

4.6 on November 23, 2012

There is no question that Wayne B&B is a special place because of the charm of Traudi and Bob Thomason combined with the lovely decore and breakfast. The comfort level is outstanding and the gracious company was irreplaceable. This is a wonderful Inn. Ron Greenberg

Great for Bride & Groom

4.8 on November 05, 2012

Thanks to Bob and Traudi for making our wedding weekend so special! I had such a relaxing evening alone the night before my wedding, and really was able to decompress the night before the big day. Then Kirk & I got to enjoy our first night and morning together as husband and wife in the lovely Strafford Room complete with delicious gourmet omelettes for breakfast! Traudi also took some beautiful photos of me in my gown throughout their lovely home, which has so many beautifully decorated rooms that make for many great photo opportunities. I would highly recommend Wayne B&B to any future bride and groom! Thank you again Bob & Traudi!

What a Treat!

4.8 on October 29, 2012

A wonderful two night stay at the Wayne Bed and Breakfast topped off our trip to the East Coast to visit our child at college. We prefer the B&B route to the usual hotel chain selections and were happy to find this gem. The B&B is in a gorgeous historic house with beautifully decorated rooms - each with a different decor theme. The rooms are good sized and very comfortable. The location is outstanding for visiting any of the colleges/universities in the area including Swarthmore, Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Villanova. The B&B is also with walking distance of the town of Wayne, the Strafford Train Station, and, for the exercise minded, the amazing Radnor Trail is about a 10 minute walk away. Traudie and Bob are great hosts. They were very flexible with our timing for breakfast and offered a number of delicious options including omelets and healthy selections like yogurt and granola. We usually stay with old friends when we are in this area, but are happy to know that when we want something a little different, we can come back to our new friends at the Wayne B&B!

My stay at the Wayne B&B

5 on October 24, 2012

I recently had the opportunity to spend a night at the Wayne B&B. Found it to be a wonderful place. Beautiful house and grounds, comfortable rooms. The house and rooms were superbly maintained. Best part however was the owners. Very friendly and flexible. Although they have a nice dinning area for breakfast, I decided to be less formal and just eat in the kitchen so we could chat while they prepared my breakfast. Best part was I kept coming up with 'options' for my breakfast and they kept finding ways to comply :-). If you prefer B&Bs over conventional hotels, I can highly recommend the Wayne. If you have never stayed in a B&B, try the Wayne, you will never go back to a Marriott or Hilton again!

A Great Place

5 on September 05, 2012

We had a great stay with Bob and Traudi, only wish it could have been longer. The Wicker Room was perfect--great views. I had a wonderful early morning swim before breakfast. I told Traudi and everyone should start their day with a swim--the trees and birds were beautiful. Breakfast was wonderful and the guests staying there were fun to talk with. Would definitely recommend staying here. Wish we had more time to explore Wayne!

Wayne B&B

5 on September 05, 2012

I was visiting my friends in Wayne, Pennsylvania and we found this beautiful place to stay in for a night. I had a gorgeous room with dark wallpapers and flowers on it, wooden king-size bed and a lot of decorations. I felt myself very comfortable being in this cozy room, it reminded me of old Russian houses in countryside ( I'm from Russia) and I liked that feeling a lot. I want to say "Thank You" for Traudi and Bob for being so kind and hospitable to me, I've never been lonely!

Gracious Hosts, Beautiful Home

5 on September 02, 2012

We spent 3 nights at the Wayne Bead & Breakfast and had a wonderful time. Innkeepers Traudi & Bob made us feel like friends visiting for a few days. The 19th Century Victorian house is well furnished and the grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed our breakfasts and chatting with the other guests before we headed out to tour gardens and Philadelphia museums. We will certainly stay here again. Dan H.

The Perfect B & B Bruce & Paula

5 on August 01, 2012

The house was beautiful; the room was charming; the pool was amazing; the location was convenient, picturesque, and quiet; the hosts were delightful, kind, and accommodating. What else can we say--the perfect B & B!

An Unexpected Delight!

4.2 on July 23, 2012

We encountered this B&B by happenstance; we sought a more intimate accommodation with a pool near to Haverford College. It was a gorgeous Main Line (huge) home with absolutely lovely gardens. I think I had one of the best sleeps in a year in the comfortable wicker room. Traudi and Bob are gems and bent over backwards to ensure our comfort and engaged in wonderful conversation. We would absolutely recommend a visit!

Home away from home......

5 on July 15, 2012

We were in Philadelphia visiting our son for a week. We considered staying downtown Philly but decided on a B&B outside of Philly for a little more peace and relaxation. It was our first experience with a B&B and we were most pleasantly surprised. The Wayne B&B is an 1890 Victorian house surrounded by trees and flower gardens nestled in a quiet neighborhood of Wayne. Both the property and the house are very spacious and have a feeling of charm and elegance. The house has a beautiful wrap-around porch with lots of wicker furniture and even a porch swing. There is also a large pool and charming gazebo – very relaxing! The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated with just the right amount of convenience while maintaining the integrity of the Victorian style. Every morning we were greeted with a wonderful breakfast! The owners were very helpful in giving us ideas of what to see around Wayne and the surrounding area. The B&B is just a few minutes from Valley Forge so we spend a wonderful day there and rented bikes. There are all kinds of wonderful shops and restaurants in Wayne, just blocks from the B&B, so we ending up spending more time in Wayne than we did in Philly. One of the most relaxing days we spent there was visiting some of the lovely gardens in the area - one of which was Chanticleer Gardens - an historic estate and gardens that are simply wonderful to walk through – look for lots of whimsy as you stroll through the gardens! But back to the B&B – as lovely as the property was, the real joy in staying there was the hospitality and friendship extended by the owners Traudi & Bob. They are the most delightful people and they open their home up in such as way that you feel like you are a house guest just visiting friends. I could go on….but let me just end by saying if you are ever in the Philadelphia area – definitely treat yourself and take an extra day or two (or week!) and visit Traudi & Bob at the Wayne Bed and Breakfast!

Lovely hosts, perfect property

We both really enjoyed staying with Traudi and  Bob, so much so that rather than passing through en route from Florida to Maine (boyfriend is a history buff, so we hit Philly then Valley Forge ) we stayed an extra night. It was very relaxing and just what we needed; to sit by the pool in the beautiful garden and have a glass of wine and take in all the lovely trees and well cared for home. Everyone in town was also super friendly in contrast especially to the dour attitude that all Philadelphians seem to possess. It seemed rather than a stay at a bed and breakfast that it was a stay at someone's house as invited guests. I was actually sad to leave because after a couple days as the only guests (they just opened) I actually felt i wanted to get to know our hosts better, especially Traudi, who besides being an excellent cook is obviously a mother hen and incredibly sweet. We will definitely be back.

The first sense was a feeling of love put into conservation of a wonderful Victorian era building& beautiful landscaped gardens&plantings. Everything seems to be in the place where it should be&was meant to be. From the porch with white wicker furniture that's quite comfortable & a magnificent rose garden&courtyard with its roses as far as the eye can se in a very quiet neighborhood, the sounds of silence are only broken by the tweeting birds & babbling water coming from the “Fountain of Hope,” which is a wonderful place to sit and have that cup of coffee. A generous-sized swimming pool, an adjacent lounging area & gazebo with a variety of garden plantings with thoughtful placement of medieval statuary that one might find in a Victorian setting. The pool area has its portion of sun, but it also has its fair share of shade from its wonderful variety of very large trees.Now step into a quieter era of elegance that seems to have always been.But all was carefully selected furnishings-perfectly placed with wonderful artistic taste. Our guest room with its large ceilings had plenty of elbow room to stretch outside our canopy queen bed with its most comfortable tempurepedic mattress. With all its wonderful shopping, restaurants&historic places , when returning back to the Wayne B&B you realize you're coming back to a wonderful oasis to unwind and enjoy its amenities with all the rest of Wayne only a couple of streets away. You get to realize how much love and effort, they have put into an endeavor, a vision they want to share this world, and their hospitality which was most enjoyed by us and will always be remembered. We truly feel we've met some new friends - "you have a friend in Pennsylvania." Bruce & Janice
