Located in Ellicott City between Baltimore, Maryland & Washington D.C.

Welcome To The Wayside Inn

Escape to the Past

Over two hundred years of history awaits you at the Wayside Inn, an Ellicott City bed and breakfast near Baltimore, Annapolis, and Washington DC. The Wayside Inn is truly the perfect place for you to escape to the past.

The Wayside Inn is not only historic (circa 1780), but also a romantic retreat from everyday reality. Innkeepers Susan and David have created a luxurious oasis….close to both fine and casual dining, and many nearby entertainment choices. Yet once you are inside this bed and breakfast near Baltimore and Washington DC, the world retreats and you are surrounded with warmth, attention to detail, and most of all, comfort! Even though the Inn is historic, our rooms are equipped with the most modern of amenities: free broadband WiFi, flat screen TVs with Fios cable (over 300 channels! 50+ movies channels!), large double spa jetted tubs and separate showers. Most of the rooms also have fireplaces. Plush robes and silky sheets call out to you to snuggle warmly in your favorite room.
