I recently spent 2 nights at Lakeview while one of my children attended a nearby camp. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It's obvious from the entire property (inside & outside the rooms, pool, private backyard, etc.) that Gail and Randy take pride in their business. They have an eye for detail and for the needs of their guests. I would... More

Our motorcycle group of 10 stayed 2 nights end of June 2015. The hospitality of our hosts Gail & Randy was outstanding. The rooms and linens were clean and fresh, and the heated pool was perfect, also BBQ's available. It is a 5 minute walk to the main beach and near the motel is excellent dining at Main Street Pub...

My parents and I spent one night in this motel and everything was fine. This is my first time at Bruce Peninsula and the host was really helpful, she sent me the "Attraction Booklet" to help me out. They are extremely friendly. Although we had a hot water problem, they tried to make it right. (Extra blanket, fixing water tank,... More

My husband and I stayed on Labor day weekend. Randy and Gail are excellent hosts. We enjoy their hospitality and the motel. Weather wasn't the greatest but we made the most of it! Enjoy the BBQ's fire pit and pool. Definitely be returning next year! Thank you again. Kristy and John

Hi Kristy & John, Thanks to you both for taking the time to post a review, we're a little tardy answering you!

The host is indecent. Definitely not a pleasure to deal with. The room was noisy due to crickets. The AC is extremely old noisy. Very small room. The location is good, about 10 minutes walk from the beach. For precisely half the price can rent at several adjacent towns such as Wiarton.

Hello airbag, The best time to share the dissatisfaction with your motel unit is at the time of your first viewing of it. After staying for one night, you asked for a refund for your second night admittedly because of inclement weather and my only mistake was actually entertaining the thought of going against our policy of "no refunds due...

I stayed at Lakeview with my three kids, my sister and her husband and son, and my parents over an extended long weekend in summer 2014. Randy and Gail made our stay unforgettable, from the easy walk to the beach to marshmallow roasting at their nightly bonfire to giving us great advice about excursions to take to Tobermory, Flowerpot Island...
