My sister and I have been coming here every year for the past several years! A peaceful location, right on the lake, with the most welcoming owner, Meredith. Kayaking, hiking, lakeside reading and wading are all immediately available. Rooms are wonderfully quaint. Great Barrington is a short car ride away. We look forward to coming here every year!

the setting here is so beautiful- a pretty lake house in the woods under big trees with the lawn seeping down to the lake, complete with hammock and boats ready to row and paddle. the screened porch where we ate breakfast every day looks out on this enchanting scene with the birds at the feeders front and center. merry was...

My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Lakeside Terrace. We had a perfectly wonderful stay. Meredith who owns and runs the Inn does a fabulous job of making every guest welcome and completely comfortable. There is everything you need to be totally relaxed. Beautiful Garfield Lake is just feet way for swimming and boating.... More

Our group of friends stayed in 6 of the rooms at this lovely Bed and Breakfast. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, Meredith Oislander. Meredith showed us around the Inn and the lakefront, where kayaks and a row boat waited for us. We enjoyed the beautiful beachfront with the large sloping lawn and quiet, beautiful lake. The rooms were... More

We stayed at Lakeside Terrace for a night in August 2015. The house is charming and the area is beautiful and very peaceful. The property is right on a lake, so we went kayaking and swimming. Meredith was friendly & warm, and very helpful with recommending things to do in the area. We had a great time hiking and seeing... More

B&B beautiful, unique, personal, accommodating, comfortable, homey. The bird feeders make the birds feel welcome too. I appreciated the floor fan to circulate the fresh breeze. The breakfast was a bit of a disappointment, as I always look forward to baked goods or something from an oven.

This rustic, cozy bed and breakfast with lovely grounds on Lake Garfield is perfect for a myriad of activities and/or simply R&R. The seven of us enjoyed our three night stay, and we had the inn entirely to our selves for the first two nights. Meredith is delightful! The only negatives are that the showers are tiny, the floors in... More

It was such a pleasure having your family here and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. As far as the showers they are standard stall showers so for larger people they would be considered small but are fine for the average size person. The house was built in 1876 so the settling of the house has caused the slant in... More

My girlfriend and I had a Groupon and this place had good reviews, so we decided to check it out. We're very glad we did. Meredith is a fantastic host. She told us everything we needed to know and then let us be. It was really too warm (uncharacteristically so for this area) to do much, so we hung out... More

My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at Lakeside Terrace. The major dilemma is that the grounds and lake are so beautiful it's tempting to do nothing but sit outside and ignore all the Berkshires have to offer. We ended up taking a row boat each morning and then heading out in the early afternoon. My... More

Perfect weekend getaway- close but oh so far. Great access to all the cute towns of the Berkshires, while providing a country retreat. The terrace, lawn, and lake were a great way to spend a day. We swam, canoed, kayaked, and were massaged to our heart's content. The affable and inviting owner, Meredith, leaves boats out for all guests use-... More
