Rated 4 out of 5áby net81652 Inspect it very carefully!
This is a great bed, but the headboard can be fragile. The first two headboards sent had cracks (and the second one was very roughly finished on the back). LL Bean customer service was fantastic to work with and didn't give us any issues about sending replacements. There seems to be a weak point where small finishing nails are placed to secure the headboard panel. The third headboard we received didn't have these nails, so it appears that LL Bean was able to communicate the issue to the vendor who adjusted their process.
The bed is solid and easy to assemble - it took two of us about 45 minutes. We also bought four under bed drawers, which look great and are extremely functional. The beds appear to be made after your order is placed, because our 'made on' date was after our order date. Including this date on the bed is a very nice touch and makes it feel like it's a custom order that should have cost much more. I can't imagine there is a better quality bed, with a better guarantee, at this price available anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Chuck61 Nice Bed
This bed comes in four boxes so be ready for a lot of material. You may need a helper to move the boxes or for some of the assembly. Mine assembled in about 90 minutes with just two screwdrivers. It is a nice piece of furniture, very solid, well-built and finished. I think this bed will last a good 50 to 100 years. We are using it without a box spring, just a mattress on the slats and that works well. I also like the fact that it is made in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5áby tacocands great quality
Other reviews had damage in transit, but ours was delivered intact and the very day promised. Assembly took a little deciphering, but took our time, made all fasteners tight, and it ended up rock solid. Pleased with quality of all components and end appearance. Very good value all considered. Customer Service was very helpful to make sure delivery was on time; we live in Montana, and were timing it for a visit to our son's family in L.A. Same can be said of the two drawers we ordered to go with it.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Verified Reviewer flawed headboard
Because of a scratched headboard and poor fitting on the back (leaving a raw line at the connecting joint) I downgrade this otherwise well made bed. The fact that LL Bean offered no compensation to provide for repair is relevant. A return for replacement is too inconvenient. (Pictures on my camera and I don't know how to get them to this email. Available by messaging.)
Also, the rim around the edge makes it uncomfortable to tuck in sheets and blankets because it comes up over the edge of the mattress. And this is a bed with slats, making a box spring unnecessary as well as an otherwise good candidate for the heavy memory foam mattresses.

Rated 3 out of 5áby OutdoorsAdvocate Check carefully
A. The bed looks great.
B. It is sturdy.
C. 2 person set- up
D. The headboard material is thinner than we expected.
E. Check out the pieces CAREFULLY ......the first 2 headboards were damaged in shipping. You need to look carefully at each part for cracks.
F. The customer support people at LL Bean were EXCELLENT.
Quite simply you need to have a realistic idea of what you are getting for the price. It is fine for our vacation property.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Elise45 BE AWARE
The distance between the floor and the rails is 6 inches higher than usual beds. This meant when I put my mattress and box spring on the frame it was so high as to make getting in the bed difficult. The quality of the bed was wonderful but I will be returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mummar4 Just what I wanted
I was looking for a bed frame with a simple style headboard that I didn't need a box spring for. This seemed to fit the bill better than anything else I had seen around. It is heavy and fit together perfectly - definitely easier with two people, though. Plenty of slats for stability and a nice height. No complaints here!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Nuggie Paneled Wooden Bed
Beautifully made, went together with minimum of effort. Slats for mattress support were VERY heavy and tricky to carry (for me, anyway). There was a split in the wood of the headboard (the side that faced the wall), but we decided it wasn't enough to send back.

Rated 2 out of 5áby mcew Disappointed in quality
Nice looking but especially given the price, I expected much better quality from llbean. Wood splintered in assembly in one place and center support is precarious.
