Situated on Lake Quannapowitt, The Lakeside Inn is a hop, skip and a jump from Downtown Boston aboard the commuter rail which is only 1 mile from the hotel. Once you are aboard, buy your ticket and sit back and enjoy your trip into Boston. You will arrive at the Boston Garden stop, catch a game, watch a concert or embark on a day full or museums, historical fun, and city life. We are also only minutes from Salem, Massachusetts, and all the fun and entertainment that the witches can provide. The Boston area does not only provide lots of historical activities, we also are near multiple outlet malls (Wrentham and Merrimack Outlets) as well as the Burlington and Northshore Malls. If you are in search of outdoor activities we are excited to introduce you to the Outdoor Discovery School hosted by L.L. Bean. They provide summer lake activities as well as winter excursions for all of our guests at a nominal fee. Including, but not limited to; fly fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Perhaps you would like to explore our local reserve, Breakheart, for a relaxing day golfing, sitting by the water, or mountain biking. We are close to some of New England's best beaches. Take a walk on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and collect shells and sand dollars. And then settle in for a dinner of Boston clam chowder and Lobster. The staff at the Lakeside Inn is more than happy to assist you in making your stay here in the Boston area as great as it can be.
