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. I told her that if she needed to make any decisions the day of, to go right ahead and not even ask (since we'd be at the ceremony elsewhere). When we came back for the reception, it was a little colder and drizzlier than we had anticipated... but she had added cute pop-up tents and blankets on the benches outside around the fire pit, which she had just bought 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 is very nice inside. We rented the whole downstairs, which I recommend if you want to use the lawn and the indoors. The dining room is beautiful and newly renovated, and having the whole bar to ourselves was a great choice. We held the dancing there, and guests could play pool or hang out by the fire pit with s'mores while not dancing. It was beautiful by the lake!
The one thing that was challenging (which I hesitate to mention, because this was literally our only problem) was the room booking process. There was no online system at the time for booking with the group rate, and because of a weird e-mail quirk, a lot of our guests didn't receive confirmations even though the inn staff in charge of this part sent them out. But we sorted it all out in the end.
All in all, I highly recommend Cheryl and the Lakeside Inn, and we hope to go back and visit when we can!!

This was such a wonderful event. It was a rehearsal brunch for our son and now new wife. All our guests loved the venue! Great location, easy to find, beautiful view of Lake Quannapowitt from the room. Leah was so helpful and kept in touch, loved working with her! She had great ideas and everything was set up beautifully. She kept everything going so smoothly that I was not stressed at all...and the food was so good. Everyone loved the omelet station! The staff was very helpful and nice to all. They were right there for us. Great experience, It looked lovely too. highly recommend this venue!

Great wedding reception
Our wedding reception was held at the lakeside inn. The wedding was for 50 people and the space was perfect. The customer service was exceptional. The stuff was polite, friendly, and helped to create a comfortable atmosphere. Cheryl, the event coordinator , helped with any requests or questions prior to the wedding and acted as a wedding planner almost. I had overall very pleasant experience and would definitely recommend.
