The Rich History Surrounding the Motel
In the 1800s and early 1900s, Yarmouth quickly rose as one of the most famous ports for shipping and sea commerce. It was one of the busiest and significant harbors that joined the continents from the East, West, North, and South. It was the destination for business and sightseeing, eventually becoming a favorite to travelers due to all it had to offer.
Before it became a bed and breakfast, The Lakelawn B&B and Motel was originally built as a mansion for Mr. William Dodge Lovitt, a prominent figure who contributed to the community’s prosperity. The house became the destination for social elite gatherings and elegant parties. Locals soon dubbed the mansion “the Lakelawn,” due to Lovitt’s prominence and the house’s proximity to the harbor.
The Contemporary Lakelawn
Throughout its history, the landmark has passed through many hands, and the bed and breakfast and motel was added on to it at this time. To this day, it continues to impress guests with delectable dishes in the café and clean, comfortable rooms in the motel. At our motel, you can enjoy scenic views, historic charm, and rooms near the ferry. This convenience allows visitors to reach the local attractions quickly and easily.
