I stayed here (in Annex) with my dog. Hostess was very helpful, putting a microwave in my room at my request so I could avoid the dining room. Room was clean; dated for sure. I didn't like that I could not lock the sliding door to porch area on first floor. I piled chairs by door for security.

Another great stay! Sarah made us feel welcome each morning at breakfast and the night we ate onsite for dinner. The river views and access are a staple. Our room was clean and all appliances worked. This is a great base location to stay while exploring the White Mountains, Great North Woods, and [since we have 2 dogs] Dog Mountain in nearby Vermont.

Stayed here before a day skiing at Cannon. The bed was comfy and the breakfast was delicious, which is all we really needed! There was a dinner party going on the night we stayed which was a little noisy, but it seemed like a special, 1-time event. And they cleared out by 1030ish and it was quiet after that. Overall a very nice stay and would come again!

I've driven by this place whenever I'm in the area for skiing, usually passing through. I always thought it looked liked a nice B&B, but not open to the public for dining. However, this past visit, when I was staying in Twin Mountain at Carlson's Lodge, the owner there, Carol, recommended dining at the Wayside Inn. Carol said you'd have to eat in the bar area on Thursdays, but it was well worth it. So, this past Thursday, took a seat at the bar (there were several tables there too, but I was by myself). The dining room had a local 'dining out' club eating a buffet meal there on Thursday, and they also kept the bar busy with drink orders. Sarah, the 'workaholic' owner of Wayside Inn, was tending bar too, and sold me on one of their dinner specials - a mixture of steak tips, asparagus, cheesy mashed potatoes, topped with baby shrimp - nicely put together. I highly recommend this place for dinner. It's too bad this place is not also listed as a restaurant on the Trip Advisor site - it deserves to be listed there as well
