Welcome to the Wakefield Inn & Restaurant
website. Thank you for stopping by!
What a stunning fall! We weren't really sure how the foliage would be due to the summer drought but I think that we can all agree that it was more beautiful than ever.
We have had the honor of hosting a brand new customer, every weekend, going on 172 weeks now. We are so proud of what we have accomplished and truly appreciate each and every one of our new and return guests, many of whom we now consider good friends, for continuing to support us. We look forward to seeing you all soon and don't forget, we are open year round!

The Wakefield Inn & Restaurant, nestled in the picturesque Village of Wakefield Corner, is one of 27 historic homes, in our neighborhood, on the United States National Register of Historic Places. The Wakefield Inn & Restaurant, formerly known as the Spiral Staircase Inn and The Elmwood Inn dates back to 1804. The Inn was originally built as a home for Seaman William Frost who wanted to own the largest, tallest (3 stories) and grandest home in Wakefield. In 1890 the home was converted to an Inn where guests, for many years, were transported to the Inn by stage coach. Wakefield Corner was considered the center of town because of the 6 stage coach lines and in 1895 the railroad began providing transportation for the Inn's guests from Wakefield's 5 train stations.
The home features an amazing flying spiral staircase, the original stage coach door, a 3 sided fireplace with beehive oven in the dining room, a very large picture window overlooking the picturesque back gardens and a lovely wrap around porch where guests can relax and enjoy a wonderful view of the village.
Today, the Inn features six bed & breakfast rooms, each with a private bath along with a full service restaurant run by Chef Christina Nicastro. The Nicastro Family and our entire staff look forward to extending their hospitality to you and your family on your next visit.
