“A Real Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

The Lakelawn Motel is a classic motor inn. The proprietor and owner puts a great deal of effort into making your stay relaxing and enjoyable.

The restaurant is the best in yarmouth. It is a five star experience. Locally sourced ingredients are prepared in unique and flavorful ways. Plus, they have a great wine menu!

The rooms are clean and well equipped. Each room is different. We stayed in two rooms. Both rooms were lovely. The lakelawn was also able to accommodate our dog. The owner even came to our door later in the day with a big bowl of water for our dog!

The lakelawn motel is a gem. Mathew and his team make you feel like you are a member of the family. Truly a classy and top notch motel and restaurant!

I am giving Lakelawn 5 stars based on the incredible hospitality and customer service provided to me. I had to cancel my visit, giving them less than 48 hours due to an incoming storm. I explained that I would be driving up from the NY Metro area by myself, so I had concerns. They were very understanding of my situation and worked with me under the circumstances. I am very much looking forward to booking with them in the Spring - my next opportunity to schedule my "epic roadtrip". I very much look forward to visiting Lakelawn and seeing their lovely property firsthand.

Room Tip: N/A - Did not actually get to stay.

Hi and thank you so much for taking the time to give us your feedback.
This is the first review we get about our pre check in service and we thank you so much for considering us in your traveling plans. We are sorry that the storm prevented you from traveling on this vacation but we do look forward on meeting you at your next vacation.
Yes you booked your reservation online and it is often hard for us to cancel it after the grace period. We made a few calls and it worked out and we all like to be treated that way when we have extenuating circumstances.
We wish you the best and we will see you in the spring time.
Remember also the option of the ferry to Yarmouth from Portland.
Mathew and staff.

The Lakelawn is a great place to stay in Yarmouth. The room in the main house was clean, very comfortable and quiet with interesting art and antique furnishing. Matthew and Val were wonderful, friendly hosts and provided an excellent breakfast and informed advice about Yarmouth attractions. The gourmet suppers are an added bonus (reservation required).

Recently stayed at the Lakelawn and had a wonderful experience. The rooms in the motel are drive up style. They are simply furnished, but super clean and cozy. The best part is the hospitality. Matthew is there for whatever you need, suggesting restaurants (and calling ahead to be sure they have room), sightseeing etc. The whole staff is extremely friendly making it feel more like staying with family. The delicious and healthy breakfast was a bonus!

Thank you so much and glad you made it home to the sunshine just in time before winter starts in Yarmouth NS.
We all have enjoyed your company and seeing you for breakfast in the mornings and have our little chats. When our guests stay with us for a week or more we somehow get to hope and expect to see them again and again.
Congratulation on winning the gold medal and wish you and your family many successes to come.

I just left the Lakelawn a day ago after an eight night stay. The room was cosy and had everything I needed. Matthew, the owner, made the stay even more comfortable with information about the area, loan of his bike, wonderful breakfasts and friendly chats. The parents staying at the chain hotels were envious of those of us staying at the Lakelawn (we were in Yarmouth for a hockey tournament) especially when we mentioned the breakfast!

We recently stayed at the Lakelawn main house for one night and were very well taken care of. The owner ensured we had everything we needed and was very kind and considerate. Mathew made a restaurant recommendation and called ahead for a table, letting them know it was my Mom's birthday. What a treat! The rooms were warm, with all the amenities that we needed. It was a clean and quiet place to stay. As breakfast was included with our room, the next morning we ate a delicious breakfast prepared by Val. It included ham, eggs, toast, fruit, water, coffee, orange juice...awesome!!!!! Thank you, Mathew and Val for a wonderful stay. We will be back!

My husband and I stayed here on Oct 10/13, and we're very pleased with our stay. No, the rooms aren't plush and posh, but they are immaculately clean and well maintained. No coffee makers, but coffee is available at the main building at 0600, and huge mugs were sent with the tray my husband brought back. The breakfast was the best we've ever had while travelling, and served in the B&B dining room. We stayed in the motel section. We wished we could have stayed longer, Yarmouth is a lovely town, and this lodging is worth more than we paid.
