The Inn looks amazing on the outside and the public areas are beautiful and authentic. It's located near a stream and there's a lot of open area. However, at first we got a room at the main building. Small, stuffy, no TV, no Fridge and a view of the roof....
We asked to move to the adjacent building closer to the stream. The room there was bigger, had a ancient TV (not flat) and a fridge. It also had a smelly dirty carpet that we didn't dare step on wuth bare feet.
The bathroom was small.
My wife and I totally enjoyed our time at The Wayside Inn. Sarah and her team were very friendly and truly took care of everything, especially additional ice! Our room was lovely filled with charming furnishings. The room was clean and we could hear the flowing river...very relaxing! The breakfast (included) was great. Sarah was the breakfast chef and made a delicious 3 egg omelet. We ate dinner one night and we were not disappointed. I had a mushroom quesadilla - a major hit for me! My wife had a salad which was very good. As expected, my wife had the cherry braised beef short ribs and she raved how good it was. I had the duck and was very happy it came out a perfect medium rare. Being able to talk with Sarah, I heard her vision of what she would like the inn to become. We can't wait to go back and see what improvements come next. Treat yourself, go to The Wayside Inn!
