Property well kept. Grounds neat and well-maintained. Rooms a bit tired but clean. Beds not bad. Not the best we've slept in but far from the worst. Breakfast was very good - lots of food. Staff were pleasant. Wifi was a bit sketchy. Kept dropping the signal. We were in a room a little ways from the main building so... More

Love the charm of this place and it is clean and tidy.The owner of Lakelawn is extremely welcoming and accommodating. Staff were ready to help make our stay as comfortable as possible. Each morning we were welcomed with a hearty breakfast laden with lots of fruit.

Pride of ownership is evident as soon as you walk in the door. We stayed in the bed and breakfast upstairs. Just a delightful place with lots of antiques and furnishings from around the word. Breakfast is delicious, eggs, potatoes, ham, and fresh fruit. The owner is extremely helpful booking dinner reservations and suggesting sights. Don't miss the lighthouse at... More

My husband and I decided to buy a property property in Yarmouth NS. We were in Ottawa ON before my husbands' retirement. When the time came to look for hotels to stay in to facilitate our real estate hunt, I happened upon the Lakelawn B&B. We decided to stay in the B&B section of the property. Time was running short...

Stayed there primarily because there were positive reviews and it was less than a mile from the Portland-Yarmouth ferry. Stayed one day when we arrived in Yarmouth and one day before we went back. A bit outdated but super clean. My experience was quiet. The owner makes a special breakfast...more than worth the money and very unique. You won't leave... More

VERY basic, noisy outdated motel. Room was clean but badly in need of an update. No hair dryer in the room and the one from the lobby barely had a puff of warm air. On the positive side, it is close to the ferry and the receptionist is friendly.

We opt for DIVERSITY and PERSONALITY and we set our own standards. Many hotel operators start their careers managing hotels like the one you are at and then, we graduate, and open our own businesses. I am so disappointed in someone who is in the business who missed the whole point of what we are doing here. On a positive... More
