The Lakelawn has many unusual features which will attract visitors who are tired of predictable chain hotels. At its heart is a large Victorian house that contains the office and several guest rooms. Motel units are spread out on either side. I stayed in the motel section. The owner-operator has maintained the property, its grounds and plantings very well. My... More

We had a great stay at this nicely renovated 150-Year-old motel. The garden was full of flowers and beautifully maintained. When we entered the property, it felt like entering a victorian cottage. Don't miss the custom made breakfast by the welcoming hosts.

We stayed at the motel overnight after taking the ferry from Portland, ME to Yarmouth. The owner there was very friendly and helpful! The room itself was comfortable (we had the family room with two doubles and a single) with a mini fridge and a microwave (very convenient). The next morning, we went to breakfast, which was WONDERFUL. The owner... More

I had a booking made with them for a visit with my son but he had already made accommodation arrangements. They allowed me to cancel on short notice due to the circumstances. I was very pleased. note - Their property is well represented outside by their pictures

Very convenient to the Cat ferry the Lakelawn is a quaint , clean, quiet, alternative to a hotel. The rooms are similar to that of a motel from the 60s, a bit small but functional. The owner is very kind, and helpful. If you decide on having breakfast make sure to notify him when you check in as it is... More

Lakelawn B&B Motel is a wonderful place to stay. Our cottage was clean, spacious and well furnished. Breakfast was extra but was worth far more than was charged.
