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 await you at the Wayside Inn Bed and Breakfast in Ellicott City, Maryland. Conveniently located nearby historic Ellicott City, Maryland, and within a short drive of either Baltimore and Annapolis, Maryland or Washington, D.C., the Wayside Inn is 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 the Inn, 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 equiped 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.

But you do not have to stay in your room! Our Library is the perfect place to cozy up to a fire and share an afternoon snack while you play a game or immerse yourself in a best seller. Classical music will serenade you while you peruse the day’s newspapers or magazines on our Sunporch. Or tackle a puzzle in the Dining Room or the Parlor.

Guests of the Inn enjoy outstanding, home-away-from-home hospitality. Your comfortable night’s sleep in one of our exquisite rooms is followed by a multi-course, gourmet breakfast, created fresh that morning by the innkeepers. Then spend the day exploring the area: shopping in Historic Ellicott City, antiquing in Frederick, touring our Nation’s Capital, meandering through Annapolis, cruising on the Chesapeake Bay, or experiencing Baltimore’s famous Inner Harbor. In the evening, treat yourself to a fabulous dinner at one of the area’s many restaurants, wine bars or micro-breweries.
