The Wayside Inn is a beautiful place with many different dining rooms. Some with fireplaces, some more private than not. Can get crowded at Leaf peeping and summer times. Food is comfort food, and is usually good,

Visited for Thanksgiving dinner and had a delicious meal in an historical setting. Our family was seated by the fireplace, and Timothy made sure we had everything possible to enjoy Thanksgiving. Very memorable and happy visit.

Longfellow's Wayside Inn is a unique part of the historic landscape of Massachusetts, and the oldest operating American Inn. Featuring an authentic building style and traditional New England food, we offer the ideal location for romantic nights out, banquets, family events, company parties, and weddings. Our menu provides exceptional quality at great value, including hearty portions and seasonal foods. We encourage our guests to spend a day with us, touring the serene and historic grounds, enjoying a drink in our 300-year old Tavern, and settling in for dinner in one of our historic rooms. We have an open patio in the warmer months, and lit fireplaces through winter.
