I have been vacationing in Sauble Beach for two decades and have stayed at every possible motel in the area. Lakeview is the only motel I have gone back to a second time ... and continually return to it each year. No other motel has made me feel as welcomed or as safe as Lakeview has.

Gail and Randy run a wonderful cottage and motel. We travel 13 hours to go there. This will be out 4th year going and each time it is better. They offer a clean pool, manicured lawns, up to date and filled BBQs, a nightly fire pit and close proximity to the beach. They also are well informed of the area.

While the motel operators are friendly and helpful, the motel itself is in serious need of upgrading. It IS clean, but don't expect too much luxury. We were influenced by the fact it was rated #2 in Sauble Beach, but if such is the case, I wouldn't want to see the others! A few examples: Front doors are flimsy and...

Hello Mccabana, Thank you for recognising that we are helpful and attentive to the needs of our guests. We've been upgrading every year that we have owned the business, and your unit, one of our most requested by the way, was completely renovated just a few short years ago.
