We stayed in Wayside for two nights and Lorraine made us feel like home! From very nice breakfast in the morning to freshly baked muffins in the afternoon. They want to make sure you enjoy your stay in town giving advices where to eat and go visit! Definitely will recommend this to anyone and won't hesitate coming back to visit...

Lorraine and Alicia were fantastic hosts. They made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived, and greeted us with a plate of homemade brownies. Our room was clean and cozy, yet spacious. We had lots of privacy - it felt like we were staying in a mini mansion. The food in the morning was great- warm quiche,...

I totally concur with all positive reviews of the Wayside....the Wayside is the complete package...for a specific traveler. Great Location: Check; Comfortable rooms: Check (hey, its a former mansion across from The Elms on Bellevue); Great breakfast (included in room price): Check; VALUE: DOUBLE CHECK (parking is FREE). But there's more...when you check into the Wayside you meet the owners...try...

First time staying in a bed and breakfast since I was a small child. Its almost as I remember. Feels like staying at someones house. If you are into that, you will love this place. When booking online it said two night minimum but once I called we were accommodated for the one night. Its located right on the same...

We stayed here this past weekend and we were glad we did. The house has a lot of character and is in a great location. The Elms mansion is literally across the street. Lorraine and her niece Alesia run this place and are very welcoming and accommodating. The upstairs hallway is very nice with a book shelf with books and...

If you are looking for a place to stay on a summer weekend in Newport for about half the price of the major hotels this is that. BUT for the price it does not live up to what it should be. The staff is very friendly. But the facility has not been kept up. After looking at the pool we...

Hi wstmark, I just wanted to thank you for the review. I confess I was disappointed initially, but the more I read... not so much! "The staff is very friendly... the facility was spotless..." If I had to pick two things to do right - these would be them! Now, the linen has been upgraded since your stay... but given...

My family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a cozy large home with a pool and a lovely breakfast. Our hosts were wonderful, friendly people. We felt like we were staying in a friend's home. We were able to walk to many sites from the home. Would definitely recommend the Wayside Guest House.

We stayed in the Library Room which was very classy and huge! We had a door right on to a porch and the swimming pool. The staff was so friendly and accommodating they made us feel like old friends visiting. The bed was very comfy and stylish. It is a nice en suite. I highly recommend staying here. Thanks Lorraine...

Lorraine, Alicia, et al. are wonderful. It is not the easiest place to find in the dark, but Alicia was texting us as we were turning around on Bellevue Ave. at 12:30 in the morning. The Butler's Pantry, a "smaller room", was bigger than most hotel rooms with a queen size bed. Breakfast was very nice & the location for...

“Room #1 is the largest room, also it's off to the side on the 2nd floor so it might be an extra quiet room.”
