My travel pal and I needed a short-notice, affordable room on our cross-country road trip, and had little idea what a gem we'd booked until we arrived. What a treat to discover the oldest continuously operating inn in the country, packed with antiques, art, curiosities, and stories, in all its crooked-angle glory. No extra charge for ghosts (we were assured...

This place is amazing! Due to the circumstances of my work, I was not able to stay here (it was not on the list of places I could book) but I was able to have an absolutely lovely meal on 6/7/2016. The proprietors were quite gracious and the food was wonderful. I've told my husband we need to stay here...

We stayed here for our son & daughter in law"s wedding. We were so delighted by the beauty, history and friendliness of the owners and staff. We had a great room, comfortable and simply beautiful. They have a restaurant and the food and service exceeded our expectations. We only stayed for the weekend, but could not have had a more...

This inn is fascinating due to its age, & its lovely period decor. Our stay was very comfortable, and the innkeepers made us feel right at home. The breakfast included in the price is hearty & delicious. It is easy to find & conveniently located for visiting the many attractions in the area

This historic inn fascinated me with its rooms and wings sprouted like a weed. It's filled with antiques and lots of old wood paneling. It has multiple common rooms and a very spacious dining room and tavern (not open when we were there). We were there mid week when the inn was pretty empty so I was able to see...

My wife and I were looking for a place to stay in northwestern Virginia while we checked out wineries and explored Winchester. Bottom line is that we really enjoyed our stay at the Wayside Inn. Located about 10 miles from Winchester, this is one of the oldest continually active inns in the country. Everywhere you turn, there is history, from...

We love traveling with our dog, a 35 pound female Border Collie, but not every place understands that she is a better tenant than most humans. Fortunately the innkeepers at Wayside know how to pamper pooches as well as their guests. We received a "treat" from innkeeper Becky Reeves upon checking in and the kind of treatment that you'd expect...

We were on the hunt for breakfast after find the Old Mill Grill closed and not wanting fast food fare. While the restaurant was not technically open for people not staying at the inn, we were invited in to eat so we 'wouldn't go hungry'. Next time we are in the area will make a point of actually staying here.

I made this reservation while planning our return from Chattanooga via the Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National park. As the beginning of our last leg to home was going to be starting in Virginia it made sense to seek accommodation close to the beginning of Rte 81 . after we exited the 105 mile long trip on the Skyline...

“Room 14 & 15 have reports of paranormal activity. We never heard a thing. These rooms are in there own location in the inn & very quiet.”
  • That window should be room 15 where we got an eerie feeling that night.
