Rated 5 out of 5 by NEMomReviewer Easy Assembly, OK delivery
After 1.5 weeks, I was contacted by the freight company to arrange a delivery time. They gave me a three hour window. After the window had passed with no delivery, I contacted them and they told me that the driver's truck was loaded incorrectly that morning, so he was delayed. I understood, but it would have been nice if they had proactively notified me, instead of telling me when I sought the information. It's not LL Bean's fault, as they contract with a third party delivery service.
When the bed did arrive (in two boxes, each weighing 40-45 lbs), I felt a bit overwhelmed when I saw all the parts. I tried matching the parts to the pictures in the instructions and got confused. I just moved forward step-by-step and assembled the whole thing myself to surprise my husband! I'm sure it took a bit longer that way, but it wasn't too hard. And it looks great. I'm thrilled with the purchase!

My boyfriend was a little nervous about buying a bed online, but LLbean has such a great policy on returns that I talked him into it! What an amazing bed!! Could not be happier.

The style, finish, sturdiness, and durability are all more than we expected. We weren't sure about ordering a bed from a catalog. It was delivered promptly and set up went without any issue. We really liked the style in the room and have enjoyed for several months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ElizabethAZ Black Lakehouse Bed
We bought a king size bed a few years ago while we lived in Vermont. We just moved into a new house in Arizona so we bought a queen size for the guest bedroom. But found that the beds are not of the same quality has they were. They are now made in China and are a lot lighter then our king bed. So I wound look around more before I bought another bed from LL bean you can get the same quality for less money elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Auntalee Delighted with purchase!
I purchased the Lakehouse bed in milk white for my new bedroom. My brother and I were able to assemble it easily, following the directions provided. It took us about 30-45 minutes to assemble. The bed is very well built and looks absolutely beautiful in my new "L.L. Bean bedroom", with my matching side tables and lamps. I recommend this bed without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NCShopperOnLine Excellent Quality Good Service
Ordered this bed with no trepidations about making a large on-line purchase sight-unseen because of our previous positive experience with LL Bean's customer service and customer friendly policies about returns, if needed.
We were not disappointed by the bed or LL Bean's customer service. The bed was shipped immediately and arrived in perfect condition within a week of placing our order. This is a beautiful, well made, and sturdy piece. It is perfect in our guest room. Assembly was quick and easy, especially since we benefited from suggestions posted by other reviewers.
We are very pleased with the bed we bought and shopping on-line at LL Bean's website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NCDiDi Quality exceeded our expectations!
We have been fans of LL Bean products for 35+ years. Now we are purchasing for our grandchildren. We shopped internet and local furniture stores for a twin bed. Kept coming back to the classic style of the Lakehouse bed. So glad we did! This bed assembled quickly. Instructions were easy to follow. The finish is a beautiful powder coat- milk white. Very sturdy and well made. We are using a box spring with a mattress. The bed height is perfect. Can't wait for the Flying Geese Quilt to complete the ensemble. A wonderful value for the quality. Classic furniture -great price- timeless look in any home. A second bed will be ordered soon!

This bed is absolutely fantastic. So very easy to assemble - took approximately 45 minutes to complete. Other then the brain puff I had while assembling it, putting the foot frame on the legs of the headframe. I could not find the screw holes on the end frame and ended up calling LLBean - realized my mistake. After correcting, it looks beautiful.
Very solid and sturdy and I am now thinking about getting another one for the guest room. My only comment is ? I would rather pay more to see the words on the outside of the box MADE IN THE USA, then to see MADE IN CHINA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IowaEm So happy with the first, I ordered a second
I ordered one of these beds for myself, and was very impressed with how sturdy it was and how easy it was to put together. It was exactly the look I was going for, and I just can't get over how well it brings everything in my room together. The construction is very solid, and feels very stable when I use it. The black finish is high-quality, and hasn't chipped any. It's such a timeless style, too, it just really looks classy.
My four-year-old daughter also liked the bed, and managed to drop hints like "You have a very very pretty new bed," and "Have I told you that I really like your bed?" quite often. She was over the moon when I surprised her with one for her room. I'm confident that she'll enjoy it for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EasternMassPaddler Great value, great bed!
I ordered this bed in a king size for a new home in a new state. Lots of online browsing kept leading me back to LLBean and this bed. The delivery timing was tricky because we had a one week window of time that we would be at the new house, but LLBean's customer service was great. The bed arrived when promised! As other reviewers have mentioned, a rubber mallet is helpful to ensure the headboard legs are firmly inserted in the headboard. In general, the directions were easy to follow and it took my husband and I less than an hour to assemble it. Looks great, and I couldn't be more pleased!
