Stayed here for 2 nights great location for us as we traveled the Cabot's trail. Rooms are nice we had a balcony which was great to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine. Only draw back is the mattress are hard and uncomfortable.

This cottage would not have been too bad if it was cleaned and all the nick nacks were removed. The deck furniture was rusted iron and very uncomfortable. The furniture inside looked like antique victorian, also uncomfortable. The screens in the kitchen and one in the livingroom were missing. There was a large cobweb inside the kitchen window with a...

Great location for an overnight stay after touring the Cabot Trail. Close to Alexander Graham Bell Museum. Had problems with wifi. System outdated and needs upgrade. Room was small but comfortable. Dinner and breakfast in restaurant was very good. Waitress very friendly. Nice entertainment during dinner.

While the cottage had potential it was really unacceptable for the price(over-priced). Furniture was old odds and ends, stained, uncomfortable and no couch by which to enjoy the view. Amenities( which were few) included only 4 plates - none of which matched, odd assortment of glassware and cutlery, crappy deck furniture, miniature bars of soap and several mini towels. A... More

The rooms weren't much larger than the furniture making it feel cramped and difficult to maneuver. The bathroom was a reasonable size. No elevator meant the family was carrying luggage three flights of stairs. Overall it was cramped and over-priced.

Thank you for taking the time to review Lynwood Inn. I am sorry to hear that you found the room cramped and that you had to take your luggage up three flights. Should you stay with us again--we do have more spacious rooms in the heritage building and several of the balcony rooms are larger than our standard size. Regarding... More

my family and I stayed at the Lynwood Cottage for four days in early August. In a word, it was awful. The cottage was dirty, including finding dried blood on a sheet, dreary, uncomfortable, lacked circulation and in desperate need of repair. Examples: the oven door came off when opened by my wife; winter weatherproofing was covering one window in... More

My motorcycle riding buddy has a heart condition which prevents him from walking long distances. Lucky for us the Lynwood Inn is located at the main intersection of town near everything. Convenience store right next door, several restaurants all within a 5 minute walk, and other shops right there too. Most important the St. Michaels Parish Hall is two doors... More

The newer rooms are standard motel rooms. Our older room while it did have character it also felt like it was used for storage by the hotel. We did not have any breakfast or voucher included in our rate so we went elsewhere for all our meals.

I booked the Lynwood Inn based on price and reviews. The room was in the main building with the restaurant. Our room was at the back on the second floor. The room was lovely and so was the bathroom. But the bed was terrible. The mattress made a loud noise every time my husband moved. Also the room air conditioner... More
