My husband and I recently returned from a trip to Lakeside Terrace Bed and Breakfast. Overall, the property was very nice and the service was good. I did not think this was truly a bed and breakfast, however. The owner is very up-front about the fact that it would not be a hot breakfast, and it was not (boiled eggs,... More

We have been coming to the Berkshires for years and have stayed in a variety of rented homes and motels. The vacation homes never really lived up to what they promised and the motels were always sterile. I wish we had found Lakeside Terrace years ago, although I had seen the sign but followed up. The location, directly on Lake... More

It wouldn't be summer without a trip to beautiful Lake Garfield and staying at Lakeside Terrace in Monterey, Mass. This quiet, peaceful setting is just the place to unwind and relax. After enjoying a lovely continental breakfast on the porch, your host, Merry can recommend many wonderful options for dinner in near by Great Barrington or the many sights to... More

For five years, I have stayed at least 3 days at Lakeside Terrace in Monterey, Mass. Peaceful, quiet, and a place to unwind. The house is essentially on a peninsula and surrounded by Lake Garfield on three sides. Absolutely a place to relax,

I can't imagine a summer without a trip to Lakeside Terrace. My husband and I look forward to our annual stay. We were up in June for a week and miss it already! The rooms are charming and there are touches of "feeling at home" every place. The ambience is filled with warmth, we are always greeted with a smile,... More

I cannot say enough about this magical gem of a B&B! An idyllic retreat right on the shores of Lake Garfield, Lakeside Terrace never fails to be the perfect setting for my annual trip to the Berkshires! The tranquility of the lake and the surrounding pines is so relaxing and re-energizing. When I arrived at Lakeside Terrace from Los Angeles,... More

We enjoyed a few days "roughing it", with no a.c., cell service or cable. Luckily there is wifi. The owner was cordial and prompt about fixing the water pressure in our shower. Breakfast was an elegant continental, fresh berries and hard boiled eggs were a nice touch. Much great food is only 20 min away in Great Barrington. The ride... More

my husband and I once again stayed at Lakeside Terrace and again, we were not disappointed. The house and the grounds are amazing. The lake is so beautiful and peaceful..a perfect spot in the Berkshires to relax and have fun. As usual, Meredith, our innkeeper, was a pleasure and couldn't have been more accomodating. We have been to other places... More

I love sitting on the porch either enjoying a book or joining in a conversation with new acquaintances. Lake Garfield offers a great backdrop for a peaceful evening of sharing a little wine and cheese or an afternoon out on one of the available kayaks or the rowboat. I am so happy to have such a beautiful setting to relax... More

Lakeside Terrace was recommended by my best friend and her boyfriend, who had a great stay in 2014. We chose to have a couples getaway in July and arrived on a sunny Friday evening. The access to the lake is great - kayaks and a rowboat for use at no additional cost. I will suggest that you bring bug spray... More

This couple who I thought were absolutely lovely came with another couple who I also thought were lovely.That was the couple who wrote the "get out" review. They had a great weekend and were very happy until they had to leave at around 11:45am which is 45 minutes past check out. They were not told to "get out" they were... More
