We just returned from another fabulous stay at The Lamb & Lion Inn! This time we stayed in the Barn-Stable barn with our 2 kids. It was fun, funky, clean & cozy! We enjoyed having meals on our own private porch, but we also enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi in the main courtyard. Tom, Allie & Eileen were just wonderful... More

My wife and I have been going to the Lamb and Lion for 14 years. In fact we just celebrated or 15th wedding anniversary there. The hospitality is second to none, and Tom & Ali are always willing to accomodate any request, to make sure we have a great stay. Having been there so many times we've stayed in most... More

This is my home away from home. Actually it is better than home because I don't have to do anything except relax. Ali,Tom and the assistant innkeeper Eileen are the nicest most attentive people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I went away for a girls retreat we stayed in Suite 9. I loved it. It is so...

As the other reviewers mentioned, the inn keeper and assistant are so nice, friendly, so helpful that I hate to write a negative review but I want to help others make an informed decision. If you want a cozy, homey, quiet place, it may work for you but the moldy shower just didn't work for us and not worth the... More

Thank you for the kind words and the review, even as we have mixed emotions as well on this one. These folks were with us for a few days and we certainly wished that they had brought their issues to our attention when they were with us, so we could have had an opportunity to correct them, rather than writing...

We were overjoyed when we learned that we could bring our special pet, Maggie, and how easily she fit into the whole environment. We LOVED the Innkeeper's Choice Suite, with our own private deck and overlook. Easy access to the most delightful patio and pool area. The pool was perfect. The Inn Keeper, Tom, was extremely helpful and caring and... More

Thank you for the review! Yes, the Innkeeper's Pride is a very special place, and although it's just a few steps from the pool the back deck is the most private part of the entire inn. We hope you can make it back in the fall when the wood-burning fireplace is going! It's been a beautiful summer so far and... More

After working in NYC for 4 months I travelled with a friend to Cape Cod for 3 days of R&R. We chose the Lamb and Lion Inn because it offered a wonderful 2 bedroom annexe, the Lamb's Retreat, which consisted of a sitting room, kitchenette, master bedroom, shower room and mezzanine bedroom. The decor is relaxed and homely without being... More

When we re-did our pool 2 years ago with new steps, liner, decking, etc., the guy who did the work also converted us to salt water. We knew WE loved salt water but didn't know how many other people love it as well. "You should advertise it on your website as a 'salt water' pool!" he told us. The pool... More

I have never stayed at an inn before and this place did not disappoint!!!! We went as a group to the Cape for my best friends bachelorette party. Tom and Ally the owners were awesome.

How wonderful to hear from The Girls! The ladies were LOTS of fun to have around, and full of lively chit chat in the courtyard and pool. They really took advantage of the space of the space & privacy the Barn offers and had little (perfectly reserved) mini-parties nightly on their deck. No gas in the propane tank?? We LOVE... More

This was our first visit to Cape Cod and the Lamb and Lion Inn. We were greeted upon arrival, shown to our room, shown the pool area and the breakfast area. Our room was clean and wonderful, with a full kitchen, living room and loft room for the teenagers. They use window A/C and ceiling fans, so we had to... More

Hanging by the pool: check! Great restaurants nearby: check! Clean rooms: check! Glad you appreciated some of the things we're proud of. The only 2 things we should address is, yes, we agree, if you don't like dogs you should not come to a pet-friendly inn, however, we are about human comforts first and dogs second. We limit the number... More

This is one of the friendliest inn we have ever stayed. For the four days that we stayed, we were pampered with peaceful surroundings, comfortable beds, healthy and delicious breakfasts, plenty of help and good guidance in planning our daily trips; whether it was to Nantucket Island, Whale watching trip, Martha's Vineyard, or just enjoying the gorgeous beaches of Cape...
