My boyfriend wanted to spend his birthday in a cozy room with a fireplace; somewhere we could also spend time with our two dogs. The Lamb and Lion was a perfect fit. We stayed in the Lion's Den, the wood burning fireplace was incredible, and the small kitchen was just enough for what we needed. We were thrilled to be... More

I am the unadventurous cousin mentioned in the previous review - and she says it all! Great place - can't wait to return - would like to bring our Pom pup sometime to meet the Poms in residence.

My husband and I met up with some cousins for a family reunion at the Lamb and Lion this September - we feel that we not only met with family,we became part of the family at the Lamb and Lion. Tom and Ali could not do enough for all of us - this is not your typical bed and breakfast... More

I tend to research any area we plan to see and our first trip to the Cape was no exception. The variable this time was taking Charley, our dog with us and looking for pet-friendly accomodations. Lodging choices were more limited but still included a range of places throughout the Cape. Reviews play a large part in our decisions and... More

The Lamb and Lion Inn was just wonderful! It's only been a couple days but I am already homesick for Tom, Ali, and their cute friendly dogs! And Ali's delicious breakfasts! Ali made perfect muffins, tasty scones, flavorful quiches and golden waffles in just-right portions so that my husband and I didn't feel any guilt but still got enough sustenance... More

My husband, daughter Robyn (graduate student at Boston University) and I had the most wonderful time at the Lamb & Lion. We stayed in the Barn/Stable and it was cozy and adorable and felt just like home. Tom and Ali (and the 4 pooches) made us feel like old friends. Tom's driving guides are treasures in and of themselves --... More

Had a wonderful time at this Inn. We were supposed to go in 2008 but could not make it there, and instead of losing our deposit, the owner Tom was nice enough to give us a credit for a future stay, which we finally were able to redeem last week-totally worth the wait! The property is very nice, the area... More

We planned an after-Labor Day long week-end to the Cape. We were traveling with our dog, so we asked our friends who live nearby in Dennis to recommend a pet-friendly B&B. They suggested the Lamb and Lion, so I called and spoke to the innkeeper, Tom, who was an absolute delight! He and Ali have 4 resident dogs, so I... More

The Lamb and Lion Inn is a delightful blend of Cape Cod charm and New England comfort with a dollop of Alice’s restaurant! The proprietors, Tom and Alice, are so helpful and accommodating. Tom shares the secrets of driving on and getting around the Cape; while, Alice provides you with the best muffins (YUM!) and fantastic breakfasts. There is a... More

As I told the Innkeepers before we checked in, "we're city people, so we look for sunny skies, a little bit of culture and some quiet time". While this may sound like "low expectations" to some, anybody that has met a New Yorker can tell you that we are anything but easy to entertain. Despite this small problem, Tom, Alice... More
