"What a perfect place to stay!"
We have returned again and again to the Brampton for nearly 20 years. When we need to slow down, to breathe deeply, to spend time with each other, we head to the Brampton. The historic house and the rooms (all different) are beautiful. The location is just out of town so very quiet, yet it is in a very historic part of Maryland, and close to numerous outdoor adventures. The innkeepers are warm, interesting and interested. Breakfast is a delicious feast. The Brampton is so special that it has spoiled us for anything else.

History buffs will love staying at Antrim 1844, a Pre-Civil War estate located on 24 acres in Historic Taneytown, Maryland. It was built in 1844 and was once a thriving plantation. It is now a beautifully restored B&B that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The property is just 15 minutes from Gettysburg, where you can see famous battlegrounds from the Civil War. It's also only an hour from Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.
There are nine guestrooms within the main mansion, but there are 31 other rooms and suites housed in unique outbuildings. All of those rooms have their own fireplaces. Guests can enjoy world class dining at the inn's Smokehouse Restaurant, where you can enjoy a gourmet six-course meal designed by their executive chef. The inn is also home to Pickwick Pub, which serves some of the world's finest cognacs and whiskeys.

"Way above and beyond my expectations"
I could not have felt more welcome or comfortable at the Wayside Inn. I slept like a baby in this amazing bed (must buy the sheets), the bathroom was definitely beyond my expectations in a home this old, Wi-Fi was available and easy to connect to, and my breakfast was totally delish (I got the recipes!). The inn is so quiet and peaceful, but I also had a great evening with fellow guests that I met, hanging out in the common area, drinking wine with amazing desserts and great conversation.
