In 2008, Susan and I added the Sun Room to replace the old screened-in porch that used to be on the back of the house. This addition has allowed us to do many things we could not prior to its construction. First and most important, it is fully heated and air-conditioned so it is now available for your use 365 days a year. It is a beautiful room to lounge in, to read, to have a glass of wine and some snacks, to read the morning paper with a cup of coffee or tea, or to just sit and relax with a good book or a good conversation. On the prettiest days, we can open all the windows to allow in the clean fresh air, just like we did when we had the screened-in porch!
We can set it up for breakfast service on pretty days, and on days (like most weekends) when we are completely full and need more space than the dining room allows. The room has one table that can seat four to six people and two tables that seat two, if you happen to prefer to dine more privately than the family-style table in the dining room. But the Sun Room can serve many more purposes; in the two years we have had it in service we have had the following:
*Small Weddings (2-30 people)
*Small Wedding Receptions
*Parties (10-40 people)
*Corporate meeting and/or retreats
When the weather allows, we can throw bigger functions, utilizing the backyard area around the pond. We held a Celtic Wedding Reception under an L-shaped tent and a dance floor for 125 people. We have parking off premises and shuttle service, for a fee, for larger parties.
We can cater everything from small luncheons to sit down dinners for small parties inside and larger ones when using the backyard in conjunction with the Sun Room.
So whether you are enjoying a quiet afternoon lounging by yourself or are part of a party or meeting, the Wayside Inn Sun Room is the place to do it!
