The CAT ferry was over an hour delayed, and the hotel owner stayed late to accommodate us. He went the extra mile to help us find food at 11:00 pm and gave us a late breakfast so we could sleep in a little. The breakfast was tasty and filling: eggs, toast, lots of fresh fruit, potatoes. The rooms were clean... More

What a welcoming place! We were greeted with enthusiasm, offered great ideas for places to eat, plus he even called one restaurant to ask them to fit us in. The room was roomy and comfortable - the whole place had a pleasant atmosphere. Plus, it's an easy, quick ride down the road to the ferry to Portland, Maine.

Simple family hotel that doesn't claim to be anything other than that, but does what it does REALLY well. Lakelawn is a short drive from the CAT ferry terminal in Yarmouth. Arriving after a 5 1/2 hour crossing from Portland, ME on the CAT, we were greeted warmly like old family friends by Matt at check in. He provided us... More

My husband and I stayed there twice during our trip. Perfect place to stay if you are taking the CAT Ferry from Portland ME to Yarmouth NS. About a 5 min drive from ferry.

We spent our final night in Canada in Yarmouth in preparation to take the morning ferry to Portsmouth, Me. We were a couple and a single friend and had booked a family suite. It became apparent why this was destined for a family - the bathroom access was through the second bedroom. However, this proved to be only a minor... More

We stayed 2 nights at this location upon arrival/departure to Nova Scotia from Maine (took the ferry). The first night were very tired from the long trip and were immediately put at ease by the very friendly proprietor. Rooms are quaint and clean, breakfast was amazing (great variety of fresh cut fruit, eggs, ham, toast, etc.), there is free wifi,... More

We stayed at the Lakelawn after debarkng the ferry from Portland. We stayed in the motel part of the Lakelawn (room 32). It reminded us of someplace straight out of the 1950's! However, everything was in working order and squeaky clean. We needed an accessible room but the Lakelawn does not have any. There were only a couple of steps... More

We pulled up at this B&B after dark and immediately thought it looked like the Bates Motel from Physco fame. Nothing could have been further from reality. Nice grounds, well kept property and well maintained for an older property. We had a room in the motel part of the complex. The furniture and wall coverings are a little dated but... More

Hehe I never thought so but I do remember the movie from years ago. I also had other guests refer to the same thing. I think it is from the same era but this building has a much more pleasant history and stories to tell. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and we thank you for the nice review... More

Clean room that easily slept our family of five. Matthew was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The ferry was delayed and he waited for us. Great service. The perfect spot to stay after the ferry. We will be back.
