The Wayside Inn is a historic landmark with a rich history dating back to the early 1700s. The inn was already more than 150 years old when celebrated poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow visited in the 1860s. Longfellow was so taken by the tales told to him by the innkeeper and guests of the Wayside Inn’s history that he wrote the Tales of Wayside Inn collection based on their stories. Recognized as the nation’s longest operating inn, this exquisitely maintained establishment was owned by Henry Ford in the early 20th Century and is now administered by trustees from the nonprofit Wayside Inn Foundation. Visitors to the Wayside Inn can step back in time to enjoy sophisticated meals and drinks in a captivating old-world setting. The menu here includes prime beef rib, chicken pot pie, Yankee pot roast, lobster rolls, Wayside Inn shrimp casserole, and a signature innkeeper’s salad. 
Other Sudbury restaurants include The Farmer’s Daughter for farm-to-table fare and Oak Barrel Tavern for eclectic pub grub, beers, and cocktails. There are also classic Chinese and Japanese dishes at Lotus Blossom, South-East Asian cuisine at Chili Basil Thai, and inventive twists on Japanese sushi at Fugakyu Café.

Things to Do

As well as being an outstanding place to dine and a unique environment to take in a good night’s rest, the Wayside Inn is also home to The Martha-Mary Chapel. Built 300 yards from the Wayside Inn by Henry Ford in the 1940s, this beautiful all-white chapel is regularly hired for weddings. 
The Hosmer House is another historic Sudbury landmark. This Federal-style home was constructed in 1793 and now opens to the public on holidays and other special occasions. The Hosmer House is particularly eye-catching in December when it is elaborately decorated for the festive season. Next to the Hosmer House, 4.4-acre Heritage Park is an attractive green space featuring walking paths, benches, a bridge, and a pond.
