  • I want to say that this cemetery is beautiful and well kept. The chapel is absolutely stunning. The issue I have is with the way the reception following the service was handled. My dear mother spent many hours planning the service for our loved one. She reached out to Lakewood staff about the area the reception would be held. She even took time out of her day to come tour. She set up a date with the staff and when she came in, there was a grieving family using the space for their reception. Not only was that uncomfortable, it was unacceptable and disrespectful to the grieving family. My mom was unable to see the space and ask questions about what would be made available. She attempted to reach out to the staff several times to get these questions answered several weeks prior. She did not get clear answers and this was reflected the day we buried our loved one. It was not clear on where the reception would be held and our guests were wandering around looking for it. When we got to the luncheon, there were supposed to be 10 tables. Not only was there not enough room for 10 tables, they were only 8. Several guests had to wait until people were done eating and got up. There were no places to set the flowers or pictures. The tech guy did not know how to work the sound system and gave up. Thankfully my husband was able to fix the sound issue for the picture DVD and I was able to dig around and find an easel to place the picture of our loved one on. Very disappointed that we had to deal with this added stress and it took away from our ability to greet and spend time with our guests.
  • I use to come all the time just for peace and quiet. My mother was recently buried there. So beautiful there and staff are amazing and helpful
  • Stop to check out "Tiny Tims" resting place. Discovered how beautiful this location is !

Where to stay in Minneapolis

To stay in the thick of tourist action, choose a hotel in downtown Minneapolis. This area offers many independent and chain hotels, with rooms that range from budget-friendly to high-end. You can also stay close to the area by exploring mid-range hotels just a few blocks from downtown that are set in quieter neighborhoods with fewer tourists. If you have access to a car and don't mind driving to most major attractions, you can consider a good value motel or inn just outside the city.
