“holiday break”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

I would like to say that the lakelawn motel is a very beautiful place and very clean, we stay there from July 6 to July 12. It was the best trip for rest and relaxation and we enjoy it so much, we will be going back again soon. Also I have to say that the service from Matthew / owner he has so much passion for the business and all of the guests, he his always there to help you with anything. I just like to say stay at this motel and you will never regret it.

Room Tip: all of the rms are great

Nice.Thank you very much for saying such kind things about our operation. We have enjoyed having you both stay with us and we also enjoyed the chats we had. I enjoyed seeing you from my office enjoying yourselves in the gardens during the day. Wonderful guests like yourselves always give us a great feeling and make us want to try even harder.
Thank you for the week long company and for the companionship that you gave us while here.
Wish you great health and many vacations to come in the near future.
We hope to see you soon and thank you for the memories.

We stayed there Aug 6 and would echo the comments in "beautiful vacation" and would stay there again. Matthew was a gracious and helpful host. We enjoyed a wonderful conversation with him in the downstairs sitting room whie enjoying fresh mint tea for my husband and I and apple tea for our friends after we got settled in. It rounded off our first day of our tour of Nova Scotia and PEI very nicely. Thank you, Matthew. The next morning the breakfast was fabulous!

My brother and I took our parents here for our Dad's 60th birthday. The Lakelawn Motel is in a perfect location, is beautifully kept and is the perfect place for a quiet and low-key relaxing vacation. Matthew (owner) is reason enough to return to this spot. BUT the breakfasts, ease of access to the surrounding areas and comfort of the rooms is the icing on top. Anything we needed, Matthew was more than happy to help. Booking dinners, recommending sights and restaurants and giving driving directions...he even checked in on us to make sure we were comfortable. I would recommend this spot to anyone, and would return here again in a heart beat.

We really had a wonderful stay here. The owner / innkeeper is SO proud of his property and takes great care to ensure that his guests are greeted and treated well. He has a passion for his business and it shows in all of his actions. The rooms are dated, but they're very clean and comfortable - it was quiet, we slept well and it was only 3 minutes from the ferry the next day. Breakfast is an additional charge, but internet is free. I'd stay here again :-)

As the guest of my son and his family, on July 24th I had the great pleasure of taking the ten-hour voyage from Portland, Maine, to Yarmouth aboard the new Nova Star Ferry (our first trip ever to Nova Scotia) and staying two nights at the Lakelawn Motel. My room there was spacious, very comfortable, and well appointed.

After a morning trip to a local supermarket for fruits, pastries and coffee in to-go paper cups, we enjoyed breakfast at a picnic table, and when Matthew saw us he came out with a pot of hot, fresh coffee and thick mugs, along with provisions for tea. What a superb host!

For the second breakfast we reserved a table in the dining room, which is delightful. The room is charming and beautifully decorated, and we could see through the windows to more tables surrounded by flowers in the patio beyond. Breakfast was luscious and the service so friendly.

We much enjoyed our stay at Lakelawn while sightseeing around the area, taking photographs, and enjoying the miles of ocean beaches, and couldn't ask for a better time. I would definitely recommend Lakelawn to anyone!

This was the first.
I think it will be in my book......If I write one.
Well I will always remember this one. First one in my career the door handle comes out in our guest hand on their way to dinner. So what do we do now. Hehe it all went well. And I thank you for your understanding and your kind comments. I guess it is not about the challenges that we meet.....It is about the way we handle them. I hope you have many wonderful trips and vacations coming and we do hope to see you one day soon.
Thank you for the memories. Thank you for your understanding. Thank you for writing a great review.

My husband stayed here 40 years ago and it was a little like returning to the past.The present owner matthew is doing a great job of bringing the motel up to date.We had an awkward moment when we tried to open the door to our unit and the handle came off in our hand.Matthew's friend was there in no time flat to replace the mechanism,which he did but needed more attention the next daywhen the room was'nt occupied.Being the good host that he is Matthew treated us both to their magnificent breakfast(unbelievable) of ham,scrambled eggs,roasted potato wedge,and about six different samples of fruit as well as toast and coffee.He knows how to keep the customer happy and we would certainly return again if we are in the Yarmouth area.Thank you Matthew and we wish you much success.

We stayed for one night in early July and were impressed with Matthew's flexibility. We had originally booked a room in the B & B (a distinct 1920's feel in the old house), but stayed in the motel part because we needed a larger room for our daughter. This was accomplished with no complaint, and breakfast (absolutely massive!) was still included in the price. The motel is central to town, and Matthew's suggestions for places to see and eat were excellent. Although the rooms may be considered somewhat dated, they are clean, well-equipped and well priced. The staff is friendly, and the host is eager to ensure a pleasant stay.
