We have made 2 visits to the Lamb and Lion and absolutly loved it. Both times have been off season as our birthdays fall in January and March so it was quiet. Both visits we chose the Inn Keepers Pride as it is not easy finding a real wood burning fire place. Eileen the

Thank you!! And you just made Eileen’s morning! Ali and I are sorry we missed you (we sometimes vacation in the winter and for MY March birthday). But she keeps the joint going. Ei is family and has been with us for a very long time—she’s a hospitality dynamo! You’re right about the real wood-burning fireplaces. Most innkeepers have converted them to gas or use Duraflames. Not here! Glad you enjoyed the hot tub and maybe we can get you here in the warmer months sometime for the pool!! Have a great summer. Tom

My wife and I went back in April for a child free weekend. We had a great stay and will be back. We both had massages which I highly recommend. One thing I always struggle with is the beds in hotels especially it seems in smaller places like this but the bed was one of the

Jim that is wonderful to hear...and I'm glad you loved the bedding. Next time you can sneak away for a child-free getaway I'm sure Elena would love to get you back into that Wellness Studio! Thank you for the kind words. It's much appreciated.

My husband and I stayed with our dog (shepherd/husky mix) this past weekend. The inn is a quick drive off the highway, but far enough away to be in a quiet and relaxing setting. Upon arriving, Eileen offered to give us a tour of the property. Instantly, we felt so welcomed with

Wow, that is really great...what a thoughtful review. Do we love dogs more than people? Some days! But we truly DO love taking dogs. They deserve a vacation too! We are limited to the smaller pooches during the summer strictly because of the shedding. Our housekeepers are top notch, but in order to keep the rooms sparking we have to limit the size and number of dogs--but we bend the rules often (especially if someone writes a nice review! Hint, hint). Gkad you appreciated the proximity of Main Street, Hyannis. That's one of the many things we love about being in the mid-Cape historic district! Have a great summer...

We stayed at the Lamb and Lion in May 2018 for several nights and again in December 2018. This B&B is a GEM. The accommodations are quiet, clean, and very comfortable. This place is casual and easy going. The breakfast is home made, ready when you want it, and very

THANK YOU for that lovely review--and our repeaters are the biggest compliment we can get every time they return. We are so lucky to have so many people who appreciate our efforts. The inn is not perfect, but we try our hardest and hope that everyone has a great time while they're with us. There's not much more to it! Hope to see you again! (and again, and again...)

In mid July my husband and I took a spontaneous overnight trip from Boston to stay at the Lamb and Lion. In the midst of a very busy summer this was exactly what we needed! It is the perfect spot to relax, unwind and enjoy. The setting and the inn are beautiful and full of

WOW! What a lovely review--and we truly appreciate it. I'll make sure Ali gets your breakfast review, she ALWAYS loves to hear such kind words. With life seeming more hectic than ever for people we really price ourselves in trying to give folks a place to "kick back and relax" as well as a safe place to b-r-e-a-t-h. We are so glad the inn gave you that opportunity and we hope this summer when you need a break you'll come back and see us. Now, if I could only find MY sunglasses... ~ Tom
