“Exactly what we needed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We stumbled upon the Lamb and Lion Inn through a Living Social deal - and we are so happy we did! It was our first time in Cape Cod, and it won't be our last. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at the Lamb and Lion - we stayed in Lair #2, which was a cozy and quiet room, with a very comfortable bed. It made us look forward to early nights in hanging out, just relaxing. The breakfast offered was delicious - Ali is a wonderful baker and I loved her homemade granola and yogurt!!! Tom and Ali really make you feel welcome - you feel like you are visiting family, not an inn. One of our favourite parts are the dogs! We had a breakfast buddy both mornings (G Willickers), the sweetest little pomeranian. The courtyard with the pool and hot tub is another great place to relax, or sitting on the back porch looking at the backyard and trees is a peaceful escape as well.

Thank you, Tom and Ali, for making your inn such a wonderful place to be. We can't wait to come back!

We just spent last weekend at the Lamb and Lion inn. The owners, Ali and Tom make a wonderful place to stay even better by their presence. They are always around and make you feel so comfortable without being intrusive. They will pleasantly answer questions, give advise or make suggestions. The homemade yogurt, jams, coffee cakes, etc. make the included breakfast well worthwhile. You can enjoy it by the pool, on the patio, in the breakfast room... wherever you want. Further, Rt. 6A is such a neat road with its unique shops, art galleries, restaurants, etc. The guest rooms are immaculate and comfortable. It is almost like a bed and breakfast ambiance although it is an inn.

We stayed at the Lamb and Lion inn for two nights and had an AMAZING stay!!!! The room was immaculate, comfortable, and conveniently had a gas fireplace! Tom and Ali went out of their way to make sure we had everything we would need and more. The gourmet continental breakfast was SO DELICIOUS!!!! We will DEFINETELY be back to this charming inn for a second stay!!

The wife and I were vacationing to enjoy our baby-moon. She was 7 months pregnant and I wanted her to stay in a very comfortable place. The L&L was that place. It has an excellent location. Right in the middle of the cape, surrounded by some of the best summer fauna. The room was cozy and well decorated. But the service is what truly shined. Tom and Ali are the most helpful and social folks. They provided us with information, hooked us up with great deals at local businesses, and provided some of the best daily breakfasts. There was always a homemade something that Ali made and they taste delicious. Their drive tours are easy to follow and a great way to see the cape. And being in the middle of the cape, the drive home was never long. My only regret is we couldn't stay longer!

Room Tip: don't forget the bug spray if you go in the summer. Also try out the cape cod shower near the p...

After a mix-up at another local B&B, Tom and Ali graciously took us in. And our first experience at a B&B couldn't have been better! We loved the way this inn was arranged--guest area separate from the owners' living space. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the breakfast delicious, and the location terrific! Tom was incredibly helpful and friendly. All in all, our experience was fantastic! If we ever return to Cape Cod, this is definitely where we will stay!
