We were on a motorcycle trip through the southern part of Nova Scotia over the May long weekend, and got caught in a horrible rain storm. We had been planning to get further than Yarmouth, but the rain made us pack it in early. We found the Lakelawn Motel and we dragged ourselves in like a couple of drowned rats!... More

Wonderful place to stay! Clean, quiet and friendly! Great breakfast (included in price for B&B). Only one suggestion. Toilet paper was like tissue paper, may need to rethink the brand. Would look forward to visiting again when the dining room is open for dinner.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay.Thank you for your comments. By the way, you are welcome to use as much toilet paper as you wish. You can double fold it or triple it or quadruple it till you are comfortable. If I may make a suggestion; Suggestions of this nature are better whispered in the ear in person. At... More

We stayed here in the off season and were one of a few people travelling. Didn't matter. We were still made to feel welcome and given all the assistance we required for our stay. The room was beautifully clean and arranged innovatively with the bathroom tucked out of sight behind the bed and behind a fixed screen. It was very... More

Very nice little motel in scenic Yarmouth, NS. Our room was clean and cozy. The proprietor was very friendly. Although we did not have meals in the dining room, it had a warm and inviting atmosphere. We highly recommend this motel.

We came here because this was rated number 1 in Yarmouth from TripAdvisor. Choosing to stay in the main house was a great idea. The level of service from our host was incredible.

If you're thinking of exploring Yarmouth NS (which is almost as pretty as Lunenburg) or the rest of Nova Scotia, staying at the LakeLawn is great way to start the trip. It's a short hop from the Portland Ferry and one of the best deals in local accommodations. The rooms are not fancy, but very clean, and the staff is... More

I had the pleasure to stay here for business. Very quiet, very clean and a delightfully surprising full breakfast. The rooms were warm and cozy and the host was more than happy to ensure my stay was comfortable. I was very surprised how reasonable the pricing was considering comparable establishments in the area.
