Best Baby Shower! - An Eventective User

Beautiful modern, well maintained venue for my daughters baby shower! Wide variety of choices in menu, plenty of food and all delicious! Catherine, the organizer, is perfectly helpful and was there every step of the way to make the day successful. The service was exceptional from start to finish. The Lakeside Inn was really the only place where we could be both inside and outside, with its' huge yard where we could also be outside playing games, which was important for the many children who came. Also, the location in Wakefield made it a perfect central location for the many folks coming from far and wide. Yes! It is directly on a lovely lake and the many large windows offer a lovely view. I cannot recommend more highly than the Lakeside Inn!

Great Place for an event - An Eventective User

Best staff I have ever dealt with at any function, they went above and beyond! Hats off to the Chef and David our Bartender. They exceeded all of our expectations. I received so many compliments from my guests! We chose the Tavern for our sons graduation, It was so much fun! 5 stars to you guys for making this a memorable event!

Birthday Party Success - An Eventective User from Wakefield, MA

I cannot recommend this place enough. The food was amazing, the service was better, and through it all the coordinator was attentive and helpful. My next event will be back at the beautiful LakeSide Inn!

AWESOME VENUE, GREAT SERVICE, FANTASTIC LAKE VIEW! - An Eventective User from Boston, Massachusetts

We had a women's group annual meeting followed by a celebration, food, music, dance. I was a bit worried about the type of welcome we will receive because we are black women with English as a second language, the staff treated us as family, great communication and courteous service. Will plan more meetings at this fantastic venue.

Great Place with Amazing Event Manager - An Eventective User

I had my son’s HS Graduation party here with 85 guests. We had an awesome time. Catherine (my event manager) went above and beyond to help me plan this event. I truly recommend this venue to everyone!

Indoor/outdoor wedding with fire pit and lawn games? Best we could have asked for! - An Eventective User from Somerville, MA

We just had our wedding at Lakeside Inn, and we seriously could not have picked a better place. Cheryl, the person in charge of organizing events at the inn, is simply AMAZING!!! She is so friendly, kind, gracious, helpful, and professional. She walked us through the whole process, was never fazed by our questions, and always took the time to make sure we were happy with how things were going. She is SUPER creative and talented, and came up with so many cool ideas for our event!! Cheryl is someone you can completely trust with your wedding day. I told her that if she needed to make any decisions the day of the wedding, to go right ahead and not even ask (since we would be at the ceremony elsewhere). When we came back for the reception, it was a little colder and drizzlier than we had anticipated... and we found cute pop-up tents and blankets on the benches outside around the fire pit, which she had bought that morning so that we could still enjoy the lawn and not get cold!! Our guests loved it and everyone snuggled up around the fire pit while the more intrepid ones ran around on the grass. The inn itself is also very cute inside, with nice decor. We rented the whole downstairs area, which I would recommend doing if you want to use the lawn as well as the indoors. The newly renovated dining room is REALLY beautiful, and having the whole bar to ourselves was a great choice: we held the dancing in there, and guests who needed a break could play pool or hang out by the fire pit with s'mores. Being by the lake, it has beautiful indoors and outdoors! All in all, I highly recommend Cheryl and the other staff at Lakeside, and we hope to go back and visit when we can!
