If you are interested in history and are in the area this is definitely a good place to check out. There is parking across the street for free.

We unfortunately were way too early for the tour, which I was disappointed about. Not too much to see of the house without a tour, but there was a lot to read. It's amazing that three big authors lived in this house through the years. We're not huge fans of Emerson, Hawthorne and Lothropp, but do respect their history. If you are unable to tour the house, you'll need no more than 15 min to get through it.

The staff made this place exceptional. It would have just been an old house without the knowledgeable and personable staff guiding the tour. They handled questions with ease and made the tour both informative and fun. I wasn’t expecting much when I arrived but I left feeling very happy I had stopped.

Regardless of where it is the longest running Inn, the Wayside is charm and history and rustic tranquility. Go back in time with the delicious food, feasting on colonial favorites like prime rib and Indian pudding in the east dining room or the old kitchen, or stay in the two origami rooms up a narrow twisting staircase, rooms 9 and 10, the former haunted. Explore the secret drawer society, find the hidden treasure hidden in secret compartment. Or stroll the grounds past the church to the Grist Mill (the ground corn is used for the amazing Jonny cakes at breakfast, included with the stay).

It was built before the Revolutionary War like many homes and inns in the Concord area. The inhabitants saw the British troops passing on their way to battle. It was occupied and visited by many classic literary authors. It was even an Underground Railroad safe house during the time that Louisa May Alcott lived in it. Her book was about the years when her family lived in this house. It's truly a historical landmark that you must see when in Concord. We didn't get to tour the house because I believe it's by appointment only. We did get the history of it through our tour guide, so we didn't feel like we missed too much. It was nice just to see it in person.
