Welcome To The Wayside Inn

Escape to the Past

The Wayside Inn, a bed and breakfast in Ellicott City, MD is not only historic (circa 1780), but also a romantic retreat from everyday reality.

Yet once you are inside the Inn, the world retreats and you are surrounded with warmth, attention to detail, and most of all, comfort!

More on what to do at our inn

More info on our packages

We specialize in intimate weddings. While we have done a couple of large receptions (100+) we prefer the 35 and under wedding and reception. The Inn is really perfect for the bridal party to spend the night before the ceremony, having a Champagne breakfast in the morning beore the hairstylist and make-up artist arrive. After the photographer has photographed the beautiful bride and her attendants in this incredibly photogenic, historic inn, they are whisked away in their Limo to get to the church on time!
