We stayed on Valentine's day this year. My boyfriend booked the room as a surprise for me and requested a massage for the morning after our stay. No one bothered to tell him, that there was no one available for a massage, until we arrived.The room we stayed in was nice but, very dusty. I had to wash all the... More

We stayed at the Lamb and Lion after reading numerous reviews of B&B's. We wanted to be located along 6A to avoid heavy traffic areas of the Cape. The set up works really well, having the pool area in the center and all the rooms and the Innkeepers home around the perimeter. Our room was cozy, clean, well furnished, and... More

The Lamb and Lion is located along route 6A, so it is easy to travel to other parts of the cape. The room was so comfortable, quiet. I didn't have a dog with me this time, and I was never bothered by any other dogs. I can't figure out how they manage to maintain such a quiet pristine atmosphere and... More

My husband and I spent a long weekend at Lamb & Lion Inn this February. We loved it! It is a sweet and charming B&B with all the little touches that make you feel right at home. From their lovely breakfast spread of sticky buns, cereal, coffee, juices and fruit... to the luxurious bed linens and dark-colored wash cloths for... More

due to the horrible winter we were having in Plymouth MA., we decided to visit Cape Cod for a weekend. I selected the Lamb and Lion Inn located in Barnstable as it was Mid Cape. They are one of the few hotels and Inns in Massachusetts that still have working fireplaces so I choose the Lion's Den with a working... More

This is a long overdue review for a place I still think about with great longing. My husband and I stayed here August of 2012 for 4 nights in Sweet 6. Loved absolutely everything about this wonderful place - and I can be kind of picky now that I'm (slightly) out of my backpacker-circuit years. Tom and Ali really are... More

Ouch, the backpacker circuit years! I never went through that, but my innkeeper partner Ali did when she was a kid--all through Europe. We were just talking about youth hostiles and the like--no thanks! That kind of traveling was never my thing. Give me great service, a really clean room, restaurant recommendations, some friendly, local advise and a bit of... More

Yes, 45 years I planned this weekend and contacted the Lamb and Lion. When I spoke with Tom he originaly said that he and Ali would be out of town, so there would not be any of her wonderful cooking. I made the choice to book anyway as he said the place would be in good hands, Jill. Jill was... More

Sorry we missed such an adventure. Things are always quiet here until we leave and Jill takes over, the poor thing. Sounds like you had as much of a sense of humor as Jill did! She takes everything in stride. Thanks for taking the time to write--glad you had such a wonderful time. Hope to see you for #50! More

How lucky my husband and I were to find the Lamb and Lion Inn in Barnstable, MA via Living Social!! The innkeepers, Tom and Ali, were lovely hosts who, along with their four sweet little dogs, precious G Willie in particular, made us quickly feel right at home upon our arrival. What a happy start to each day from Willie... More

The pool and the fire pit...our favorite Lamb and Lion feature! We are glad you were able to take advantage of the LivingSocial deal. We don't do a ton of discounting here as we find you definately get the "bang" for the buck, but in very slow times we DO offer some wonderful discounts, which are only found on our... More

The Lamb and Lion is a lovely bed and breakfast in Barnstable and everything that has been written about the accommodations and the friendly, helpful hosts is right on the money. But as seasoned guests at bed and breakfasts, I was disappointed with the breakfast offered with the rooms. Yes, the cake, granola and bread were homemade and delicious, but... More

Thank you for the kind words. YES, we agree with you!! If you weigh breakfast as the most important part of your stay and require the large, 3 course, formal sit down hot breakfast affair, we recommend you keep shopping! We too are seasoned bed & breakfast professionals. We've owned and operated a 4-Diamond Relais & Chateaux property, run several... More

I stayed at the Lamb and the Lion for three nights, with two friends. We chose this inn for two reasons: pets are allowed and they had an apartment-sized suite available. The Barn-Stable suite gets an A ++ from me for character and comfort. It was a privilege to stay in an antique building from 1740. The decorations and details... More

Oh, the BARN! WE love our Barn reviews. This is probably the most unique place to stay on Cape Cod--certainly it is on historic Route 6A. What a wonderful review--and to take that much time to write such a comprehensive overview is nothing but flattering. We love our 1740 Barn, the knight who makes sure each guest has a good... More
