About Longfellow's Wayside Inn

Longfellow's Wayside Inn—a nationally significant historic landmark—is an old Inn and tavern that has been serving travelers along the old Boston Post Road for almost 300 years. What began as an extension of David Howe's family home in 1716, the Inn has thrived through years of growth and expansion and survived because of its important history and beautiful setting.

From its Colonial roots to Henry Ford's historic preservation of the property as a living museum of American history, the Wayside Inn offers a unique experience of history—a step back in time in a warm and hospitable setting. The Inn is the perfect backdrop for your own memory-making occasions.

Longfellow's Wayside Inn offers quiet settings for a leisurely visit, historic rooms for dining with family and friends, and comfortable guest rooms. The Inn serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 364 days a year and has ten guest rooms for overnight accommodation.

We look forward to your visit!

    We can't say enough good about the Wayside Inn and it's staff. We had our wedding at the Martha-Mary Chapel and the reception in the Wayside Inn main dining room. It was a beautiful setting and everything was great. The Wayside had a church sexton (Charlene) for the ceremony and a bridal hostess (Linda), and they are GOLD! Both were so helpful and made the day so easy for me! Everything from the food, the venue, the rooms, all of it, can be attributed to a great staff who truly cared that we had an incredible day. Highly recommend for a unique experience.

    Our guests had so much fun and loved the experience at the Wayside Inn. This was our fourth venue we viewed and after reviewing the grounds, having an amazing meal and reviewing costs, Wayside exceeded our expectations. Melissa and Michelle worked with us to make sure we stayed within our budget, were very flexible regarding setting a date and made us a timeline that made each step of the wedding planning a breeze.
    We definitely had a rowdy crowd with us the day of the wedding and the staff was amazing with making sure everything was perfect! All of the staff were so kind and available for anything we needed (our hostess Linda was AMAZING!!). Everyone had so much fun and still are telling us what an amazing day it was. Thank you so much to everyone at the Wayside Inn for letting us have a dream wedding that we were able to enjoy (minus not being able to eat that much because we were busy having so much fun!!).

    What a breathtaking venue! I worked with Michelle from the Inn from start to finish during the planning of my wedding, and she was very easy to work with. They have a fair number of guidelines, but all of their policies were provided upfront. Michelle and Melissa encouraged me to email with any question or concern that came up, and were both very prompt with their responses. Linda was the host during the reception, and was wonderful as well. She brought mini plates of hors d'oeuvres us and the wedding party while were were taking pictures so we wouldn't miss getting to taste any. At the end of the night,they boxed up the top tier of our cake for us to take home. Linda really made sure everything ran smoothly. I had my ceremony in the Martha Mary chapel; totally worth it! It was gorgeous. Michelle (a different Michelle) was in charge of the behind the scenes details for the ceremony. Her attention to detail was very impressive. We also rented the horse and surrey and it really added that special something. Overall it was a great experience! Unlike the venue for my sister's wedding, the staff at the Wayside did everything they said they would do. Very easy to work with and accommodating. Picture perfect! The staff really know what they are doing and I truly felt they were there to make make sure I had everything I needed. I definitely recommend them!
