What ever you want. Call them for an overview
Thinking about a 75th birthday get together for my wife with family and grandchildren. I actually set up a retirement party for a friend many, many ago and was very pleased. How to start? Looking for something about January 20th. Note we have a few grandchildren with food allergies - peanut, etc. Look forward to your help Jim Jadul 617.828.2000

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.
