Comfort and Quality


A Christmas Gift from my daughter and son-in-law, an overnight stay at the Wayside was wonderful. Stayed overnight on December 29th and ate dinner there that evening. Dinner was spectacular and the accommodations relaxing and comfortable.

A Great New England Gem of an Inn

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA

Christmas at the Wayside Inn, Chatham has been a truly wondrous experience. My fiancé and I flew up from our home in Ft Lauderdale to announce our engagement to her family in persona and to spend the Christmas Holidays with them. On the recommendation of my fiancé and her family we made arrangements to stay at the Wayside Inn for our stay for the week. The Hotel/Inn is lovely, quant and fully lives up to what one would expect from a traditional New England style Inn. We received a lovely King bedroom with balcony that was tastefully decorated in traditional New England Style. The room and furnishings were all in like new condition, very clean, well decorated and quite cozy. The bed was very comfortable. Truly all that one could possibly come to expect in a lovely traditional New England Inn. The staff were exceptional in countless ways. As many travelers know, the holidays can be a difficult time for folks in the hospitality and service industry as well as for the guest. Additionally, many hotel services that one would generally expect to receive can be a tad limited during the holiday season as management tries to balance their service staffs time between their families and their job. Suffice to say that the hotel and staff did an excellent job at providing superior and exceptional services to their guest during this holiday period. We were especially surprised to find some lovely gifts wrapped up outside of our room as we opened the door on Christmas morning. What a wonderful surprise! I have stayed at some of the finest 5 star hotels and resorts throughout the world but have never experienced the genuine warmth and feelings of belonging that we experienced by all of the service staff at the Wayside Inn during this holiday period. It truly exceeded our expectations in so many ways. As my fiancé’s family is from the general area, going forward, we will continue to book our stays at this lovely Inn/hotel.
