Lakeside Farm Bed & Breakfast
Table Of Contents
To sample a bit of country life with us at Lakeside Farm in the northeastern corner of South Dakota between Aberdeen and Watertown in the city of Webster.
Located on the north shore of Waubay Lake, one of the best fishing lakes in South Dakota.
A Norwegian immigrant pioneer established a tree claim on the rugged, beautiful South Dakota prairie more than a century ago. He chose the spot for its fertile soil, gently rolling hills, and proximity to Waubay Lake. Today, his grandson Glenn Hagen and his wife, Joy, own and operate the farm.
Feel free to explore the grove, barns, and pastures, or just relax with a cup of tea in the farmhouse. Enjoy a long, leisurely morning in bed until you're awakened by the tantalizing smell of Joy's home-cooked breakfast.
Lakeside Farm is featured in the December/January 2007 issue of COUNTRY magazine
We now have available Wireless Internet service.
Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Glenn & Joy Hagen for sharing their secrets with BBOnline.com! Why do most travelers stay at your inn?
Folks stay for an experience of B & B and not the motels. Once travelers experience B & B they seek them out.
What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?
Our farm. Love most....we had a guest not to long ago say this: I can hear the quiet! Isn’t that a profound statement? So true out here in the country.
If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?
The SD area is new to a lot of people. Their family say to them: What do you want to go to SD for? There is nothing there.We are here to prove them wrong!
What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?
That we are hospitality put into action. We get so many compliments on our friendliness.
What’s the best kept secret about the area?
SD in general. As mentioned in the answer above, there is so much to do.
If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?
Lots of attractions. Lakes to fish. Wonderful museum – the best – folks tell us it is better than the Smithsonian! International Vinegar museum – the only one, I think, in the USA anyway. Solitude. Walking.....seeing what a farm looks like!
Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?
Not really. One has to drive 8 miles to Webster. But what is 8 miles when folks drive 25 in a city to go eat somewhere?
What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?
The New Frontier on Main street of Webster SD. Small...a bar if someone wants a wine or drink before dinner. Good food and yet reasonable.
Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference?
We have Glacial Lakes and SD guide books on hand. Most folks that come know or have them, too.
How many rooms does your inn have?
We have 3 rooms; 2 in the upstairs of our home and 1 (more rustic – that the hunters/fisherman enjoy) in the lower level.

No we don’t allow pets in the house. We have plenty of ‘out buildings’ for guests to house their dogs.
