Welcome to our brand new blog on our brand new website! We plan to write a new blog a couple of times a week to keep you up to date with all that is happening in and around the Wayside Inn of course, but even more importantly, to keep you informed about events, concerts, specials and the like happening in and around Ellicott City and Columbia, Maryland. This is an exciting area…why Money Magazine lists the Ellicott City/Columbia area as the 2nd Best place to live in the United States! Sports Illustrated listed our area as one of the top ten sports cities in the U.S. While all that seems hard to top, our officials our not resting on their laurels: one of the largest tennis complexes is being built as this is being written. This will bring Professional Tennis to our area for the first time. More on that in a future blog!
We are not resting on our laurels either! Even though we were accepted as a Select Registry property (only approx. 400 out of 20,000 in N. America!) and a Diamond Collection Inn by bed and Breakfast.com (200 out of 20,000!) and were listed as one of Baltimore’s Best Bed and Breakfasts by Baltimore Magazine, we are not stopping there. If you have been a guest here in the past, you started receiving our new “Innside the Wayside” newsletter in February and one every month since. If you did not or are a prospective new guest please email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure you get on the email list. Every month we send out things to do when you are visiting here, like how to visit the Cherry Blossoms in DC that we sent out in March’s newsletter. We also have contests, post newsletter only specials, and give monthly tips from “David Kitchen” that will help you create some of the dishes you have enjoyed here.
In today’s blog, we would like to call your attention to two brand new packages we just listed on this new website: ” A Night That Rocks” and a Night With Class”. The first helps you attend Rock, country and jazz concerts at our award winning out concert venue, the Merriweather Post Pavilion. The second package help classical music lovers attend a concert by the Baltimore Symphony with special perks only we can give you! Check out the package section on our website to see the details! We will discuss this in more detail in future blogs!
You will also see information about the Inn and specials (like our Groupons which dropped in Baltimore on 4-21 and Washington, DC on 4-29), contests and just queries we would like to discuss on our Facebook page and our Twitter page. Who knew when we started this Inn in 1999 that Social Media would change how we communicate?
That’s all for today. Keep a smile on your face, check your worries at the front door and come on in!
