“Great Place to Get Away from It All”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The Lion and the Rose is a great place to stay to have a scenic trip to the White Mountains. It's within striking distance from places like Littleton (with Chutters) and Sugar Hill (with Polly's Pancakes). Their rooms are themed (like the Egyptian room with appropriate decor), but the main house has a wonderful Edwardian feel.
Chris and Roger treat you like family and make you feel the need to come back for another visit.

Room Tip: I recommend the Egyptian room or a photo op with the throne and tiara/crown.

As noted by others, Chris and Roger are warm and caring folks who make it clear they love what they are doing. The place is clean, quiet and decorated with throughout with their collection of artifacts, paintings, funky furniture and lots of other cool "stuff". Breakfasts were great and their recommendations for other eateries solid.

Room Tip: The Egyptian Room is cool.

Beginning with a genuinely warm greeting from the owners, Chris and Roger, and ending with a sumptuous breakfast of raspberry stuffed french toast with raspberry sauce, genuine maple syrup, sausage links, fresh fruit and a choice of coffee or many flavors of tea, our stay at the Lion and the Rose was exceptional. The rooms are thematic and whimsical, but not overboard, with enough special touches to make you feel the theme but no so much as to drown you in it. Plenty of detail, spotlessly clean, with the warmth of home plus a welcoming hot tub, it was a joy to stay there. My business partner and I are planning to bring our wives there in either late spring or early summer for a nice get-away. All in all, a great B&B!!!

Look no further if you are looking to stay in a Bed and Breakfast! The service was spectacular, the cleanliness was unbelievable, the comfort was amazing, and most of all, Roger and Chris were gracious hosts! The breakfast was absolutely delicious! You will NOT be disappointed staying here! We can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Any room would be an excellent choice!

We had a lovely stay at the B&B. Our hosts were a delight and made us feel like we were old friends returning for a visit. The decor is very Victorian, a rich palette of colors and period artifacts. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. We were treated to a delicious breakfast while we socialized with other guests. Great for a romantic getaway.

We had plans to ride the cog rail way up Mt Washington and were looking for a sweet place to spend the night. The Lion and the Rose was exactly what I had hoped for. Chris understood that our budget was as limited as our time and was extremely accommodating. We loved the Lion's Den and the two person jacuzzi was perfect after the day of hiking. Breakfast was delicious! The house is charming and well cared for and Chris and Roger were the perfect hosts. I hope to go back again next year.
