We were part of a bus tour and this was one of the places we ate dinner. The food was very good and the atmosphere was very New England. This is the location that the Bob Newhart Show exterior shots were filmed. The wait staff was very good and looked out for your every need. We did not stay at... More

I visited the Waybury Inn with my elderly father this month. I had driven about 1 hour to get to the restaurant and found out they only served dinner starting at 4pm on the weekdays.

Very accommodating - late arrivals, late return, etc. - comfortable, cozy, clean room. Wonderfully quiet night. A great getaway spot with a nice pub and restaurant. Off season rates are a great deal (we were visiting in April).

From the moment we walked in, everything was perfect. We were promptly greeted by front desk, and checked into 'Room 9 - the Robert Frost Suite' - if you are going to stay here, stay in the room (Google it, it is pretty awesome)! We went into town for a couple hours before returning for dinner, where we had steaks... More

Stayed at the Waybury Inn on business trip because of the discounted room rate for the time of year. We stayed in the Densmore Room which was described as "Cozy". Room was very small but very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was the same. We had dinner at the attached Pub and the staff and food were the best. Every... More

I first stayed at the Waybury Inn six years ago and on my most recent visit, I found it to be just as comfortable and welcoming as before. The Inn offers 13 different, charming rooms, free wifi, but rooms do not have television. My room (The New England Room) was described as cozy, and as a solo guest, it was... More

Came here as part of a bicycle tour. I must say that the owner and staff were incredibly accommodating to our group. The innkeeper gave us a history about the place. The staff had fresh baked cookies out for us everyday at 3. The rooms were fine. A bit kitsch. Sound proofing, hot water availability, modern amenities what one should... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Waybury Inn is known not only for its role on the Bob Newhart Show, but also for its extraordinary dining options and beautiful accommodations. The Waybury Inn's thirteen guest rooms are decorated with a little whimsy and provide all of the comforts expected in today’s lodging. It is true that we are over 200 years old, but we have spent the last ten years renovating and decorating to offer the best blends of historic charm and comfortable surroundings. Dog-friendly accommodations, deep claw-foot bathtubs, free wireless internet, a dedicated guest PC, and a full service bar are just some of the amenities we offer. All of our guests also enjoy a complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast each morning. ... more   less
