Part of The Wayside Inn Historic District and home of Longfellow’s Wayside Inn, we invite you to enjoy our pastoral setting, explore our museum rooms, engage with our programs, and savor our generous hospitality.

Legendary Tales. Timeless Hospitality.


With humble beginnings as a simple, two-room family home hosting travelers along the Old Boston Post Road in 1716, Longfellow’s Wayside Inn is now the oldest inn operating in the United States. Nestled under great oak trees at the center of our majestic 100+ acre property, the Inn offers generous hospitality, delicious New England cuisine, and comfortable lodging in a warm, historic setting radiating with charm. Whether it be a romantic dinner for two, a small gathering for drinks, a family dinner, a joyous wedding, a large group function, or a night in the country, we are proud to continue a time honored inn-keeping tradition for visitors from across the globe and around the corner. Welcome to America’s home for hospitality for over 300 years.

We look forward to your visit.

"This is a must-do kind of place if you are visiting in New England! The gracious, centuries old inn makes the most of its historic setting. The food is excellent and bountiful with an accent on New England favorites like, scrod, chowders, chicken pot pie, butternut squash and homemade bread basket. There is something for everyone with a special flavor of history mixed in. Reservations are encouraged."

"Step back into history and dine where Longfellow did...well, at least once. The front pub will give you an authentic feeling of what life was like back then and has a pub menu and great drinks. The rest of the restaurant is fabulous - excellent food and atmosphere, and vegetarian options as well. There are several rooms that have been left as they were and are museum quality. It's a pretty amazing place and people there, both staff and customers, were very welcoming."
