We chose the Shadow Lawn Inn for a one-night stay because of its proximity to the St. John airport. It is far closer to the airport than the downtown hotels -- but it is so much more, too. Shadow Lawn is a lovely restoration of a significant Victorian-era home on Rothesay Road, which is filled with other equally noteworthy 19th century mansions. The room was comfortable and tastefully furnished. But the big surprise was the wonderful restaurant located in a contemporary addition to the main hotel. The Robertson was lovely -- service was properly attentive but with a casual contemporary touch. The food was deliciously fresh and inventive. The atmosphere was pleasant as was the décor. Normally, I approach B&B's with caution. But the Shadow Lawn Inn is professionally run, with a marvelous chef.

Enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Shadow Lawn Inn very much! We had suite 8 with 2 double beds and a kitchenette. The room was spacious enough for 3 people, the kitchenette had everything - kettle, coffee maker, cups, plates, fridge. The bathroom was nice and modern and large. Breakfast had a good selection of items. We also had dinner at the Robertson restaurant - delicious and well presented. The staff were friendly and helpful. The inn is in a quiet peaceful area and very easy to get to downtown Saint John.
Overall a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend if you are visiting the Saint John/Rothesay area.

Stayed here for two nights and had a great experience. Our room was vary spacious and very well taken care of. It had one of the most comfortable beds from all the hotels we stayed at during our road trip. The staff was very attentive and the breakfast at the restaurant was very good. I would definitely stay here again if we return to this area.

Our son was recently married in Rothesay. As parents of the groom, we hosted the rehearsal dinner for about 40 people at Shadow Lawn. I have never written a review on Tripadvisor before but in this case it is warranted. The whole experience from the early planning stages to the final goodbye was Fantastic. Jamie Gallagher ensured everything ran smoothly and he was very hands on; No detail was overlooked and the staff were well informed re: the sequence of events.
The food deserves a special mention - it was absolutely delicious - discerning gourmands went back for second and third helpings!
Some of the wedding photos were taken at Shadow Lawn and the staff were very accommodating- rooms were prepared early. Obviously there is good communication amongst the owner and staff to meet the guests’ requests. This was demonstrated again at the wedding breakfast- Weather was beautiful so the guests arbitrarily sat outside - the staff were totally flexible - no problem.
I would not hesitate to recommend Shadow Lawn Inn. A milestone in our family’s lives was made even more memorable and enjoyable by the fantastic service that was provided.
Thank you Jamie and all staff at Shadow Lawn.
