This inn was recommended to us by another inn keeper on the Cape. I have stayed in many inns and b&bs around the country. This is one of the best! Tom is very charming and friendly. He provided us with a list of things to do from walks to eating to shopping to site seeing. This is an awesome inn... More

Wow! Thank you so much for the review. I wish I knew the name of the other innkeeper so I could thank them in person. We innkeepers on Cape Cod refer around a lot and all strive to make sure our Cape Cod guests have a great time. We hope that as you read this you're thinking of staying at... More

Last week we revisited L & L and were most happy, although not surprised, to find due to the heartfelt and diligent efforts of Tom and Ali that the high standards of excellence were maintained at this beautiful inn. Starting the day with breakfast at an umbrella'd poolside table and winding through the day with some sun bathing and a... More

These folks are the best. We are very lucky to get so many repeat guests--tons of them, actually, and these folks we can consider family. They also happen to hold the Lamb and Lion record for "most hours spent poolside"!! That's the beauty of having a pool, hot tub, and courtyard with outdoor fireplace. After a couple of days of...

We stayed at the Lamb and Lion Inn on our first getaway together and could not have had a better time! Easy to feel comfortable and at home, Tom and Ali were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The set up of the place is great, no matter which room you're in you are steps from the pool and... More

That's funny---I'll tell you a secret--we're normally hotel people too! In B&Bs you never know what you're going to get, but with hotel chains, well, at least they're consistent, right? We use this attitude to our advantage and that's why we've become one of the most unique inns in America. You want that B&B warmth & conversation? You got it.... More

Our stay was actually a few years ago, but we were just looking through pictures and stated how awesome this place was and different from other B&Bs. I wasn't an avid reviewer at that time, but here it is. The room was amazing. We loved the spaciousness of it and the little "porch" outside. Also, the pool and hot tub... More

The solar-heated pool, hot tub and courtyard with outdoor fireplace are, indeed, one of the many things that make the Lamb and Lion unique. As is our "eat it when you want, where you want" breakfast with "super-size options. We are always trying to think a little out of the box. We have been at the Lamb and Lion for... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend away in the Cape and we stayed at the Lamb and Lion for 2 nights. Having never been to Cape Cod, I can't imagine we could have lucked out with a better place to stay. The property, rooms and courtyard with pool were well taken care of, clean, and inviting. It was relaxed,... More

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

Dust? Hmm...I have to say I'm surprised by this, but I believe this reviewer. The owners (that's us) decided this winter to take a couple of months off to renew, refresh & see family (and drink margaritas far away from the Northeast chill!). We did stay open and we were well run by our amazing assistant Jill (read more reviews... 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

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.
