I'd always managed to find someone to look after my pets at home after one bad experience with another kennel. But last year we found ourselves with only one pet - a new nervous kitty - and a need to leave her safely for an undetermined time when we had a family emergency that continued for almost 2 months.

I left a typed page full of her habits!, - and her favorite "blankee" and toys. She came home not only with those but with new toys and a bag of goodies! Not only was she cared for superbly at Lake Farm for several weeks at a time, but she returned much more relaxed and loving. Donna's two daughters apparently fell in love with her - and gave her even more attention than the generous attention the staff gives to every guest! Both Donna and Helen were incredibly supportive to me personally each time I had to call and change our return dates.

I can't offer high enough praise about this family-run business. We feel totally confident leaving our beloved girl there. Thanks, Lake Farm, for everything!

I have been taking my pets to Lake Farm Kennels for nearly 20 years. First it was labs, now we have progressed to a pug, a cat and a guinea pig. My dogs have been going there for grooming as well as boarding and I feel confident when I go away that I will come home to a happy (and hopefully exhausted) doggie.

Don't ever assume with the staff at Lake Farm. The owners have been the same family for the majority of the 20 years I have been going there. Just because it's not on the bill doesn't mean it didn't happen. Neglecting to ask says more to me that you didn't want to risk the chance of having to pay extra. It wouldn't surprise me if they just let it slide this one time.

Crazy as my directions may be the staff at Lake Farm follows direction - if you give directions to them. When I leave my guinea pig I bag up a salad for each night (yes he gets a salad every night (sigh)) as well as his food and hay. They have a fridge on premises for pet needs. He gets a salad every day, his hay is kept full as well as his food. When I add a scoop of wet food for the cat as well as dry and the dog's directions everything is taken care of perfectly.

I guess the true proof is when I drop my dog off for grooming or boarding. He doesn't try to take off in the other direction. He goes in, wags at everyone, he likes being there. Dogs don't lie....

Pros: Nice sized play area, staff can be heard talking to the dogs, always pleasant staff, always happy pets

Cons: Anything I say here just makes me sound spoiled :)

We have used Lake Farm Kennel for our Golden Retriever on a number of occasions. While I don't like to leave him, he has always comes home acting normally and I have never hesitated or worried about the care he was receiving. We bring his food as he has a food allergy. You can have your dog groomed before he leaves if you make arrangements.

We left our dog at this kennel while sightseeing at Martha's Vineyard. We were told that for an extra $5.00 our dog could have a play session once during the day with the attendant. We specifically ordered this as we did not want our dog locked up all day with little exercise or personal interaction. When we picked our dog up the next morning I was very upset to I see that he was not provided his playtime (I assume this as we were not charged the extra $5.00 on our bill, which I really didn't look at until after we'd left the kennel)

Pros: Clean, has vet services available

Cons: No evening hours for pickup, Pricey at $27.00 per day (supposed to include a playtime with attendant)
