“Worth your time”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Beautiful B&B in charming Berlin MD. We were unaware of this redone country home until spending a week nearby. Mark accommodated our dinner request and we dined with Mark and his wife and a local couple a few days later. Enjoyed the ribs and eastern MD cornbread. Dessert crepe delicious. Ample time to share conversation and learn more regarding the inn and local history. Worth a visit and the town itself is a don't miss. Hope to stay on our next visit to MD

Most accommodating owners offer large comfortable rooms (5) and exquisite food. Being a BnB, breakfasts are over the top. Throughout the seasons, owners Mark and Lucy Kaufman host "special theme dinners" which have been exceptional. If you are looking for designer toiletries, you won't find them here - but, who needs them! The Waystead Inn is a unique historical home, restored from the ground up offering all the creature comforts one could want. It sits 5 minutes outside the town center of Berlin and is filled with luxury and charm not offered anywhere else in the surrounding area. This is a best bet - can't be beat. Enjoy a glass of wine with the owners in the parlour or, weather permitting outside on the patio. I can't wait to go back. The Waystead Inn is a real gem - book early especially during the season. Golf, shopping, restaurants, etc all located nearby.

Room Tip: There are 5 large comfortable rooms all completely restored just 2 years ago - you can't go wron...

We stayed at The Waystead for one night February 15th. The inn is lovely, great location and the chef/owner was very welcoming and made a delicious breakfast. He was very kind to call us and let us know we could check in early too.
The only complaints would be the lack of water pressure on the top floor and it would have been nice to have more toiletries offered than the one tiny bar of soap. But really those are insignificant details. We had a great time, no ghost issues and it was very clean and cozy.

We stayed at the Waystead for 1 nite in November. Eric was extremely accommodating, he makes a great breakfast, and knows everything about Berlin. The inn is beautiful, close to restaurants etc. in town, and the rooms are large and comfortable with modern baths. This is a great stop on the way to the OBX. There's a new fire ring outside and Eric makes Wed. Nite dinners for $20 which includes a glass of wine or beer! You won't beat the value, service, or accomodations anywhere , and Berlin is a fun town to explore with interesting shops and several great places to eat. Stop in the Maryland Wine Bar, a cozy tasting room in the center of town.

Room Tip: The blue room is the largest and has a comfy lounger in a sunny bay window alcove.

We had an excellent time at the Waystead Inn. We stayed one week-end in November, the house and the room were great and warm, decorated with a lot of taste. Eric the Inn keeper was very friendly, had very good advice for local food options and cooked amazing breakfasts for us!
Berlin is a charming small town, close to Assateague Island, Ocean city and other attractions.
We definitely recommend the Waystead Inn!

My wife and I just came back from two of the most pleasurable, memorable, restful days of our entire lives. We arrived at the Waystead Inn tired and cranky from hours upon hours of travelling and were met with the warmth of an old friend we did not know that we had, Eric, the Inn Keeper. We were shown to our room, which was not only clean and comfortable, but was also graciously appointed in both modern as well as colonial décor. We were asked what time we would like breakfast. We replied, "eight o'clock, please". It was not a problem for this innkeeper who proved over the course of our visit to be sincerely interested in both the pleasantness and restfulness of our much anticipated vacation time. For the next two mornings we were treated to the breakfast creations of this classically trained chef who has, by his culinary acumen, raised breakfast making to the state of an art form.

In our opinion, the Waystead Inn is the place to go when visiting Ocean City MD. It is close enough to enjoy all that Ocean City has to offer (it is literally a hop...skip...jump to Ocean City) as well as providing a clean, quiet room where the summertime breezes blow away from the hustle and bustle of the busy waterfront. Truly the best of both worlds!

The Waystead Inn is within walking distance to the center of Berlin, which all on its own, is a jewel of a Town just aching to be explored by the weary traveler looking for an old fashioned town where people are still just plain nice just because it's nice to be nice.

So to be short...go to the Waystead Inn in Berlin Md...the accomodations, the food, the Innkeeper, not to mention the town, are worth your hard earned time away. I give it a 5 star rating, only because that is the maximum amount that this site would allow. Otherwise, I would have given it more.

The Waystead Inn will be a favorite vacation place of ours from now on.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of equal value and residual quietness

You might not know that the B&B has special dinners available. My wife, friends and I went to a wonderful dinner the other night. The food was out of this world. High end restaurant quality. Eric the chef is extraordinary!

If you haven't checked it out, do yourself a favor.
