Just returned home from a beautiful Labor Day 2016 weekend at L & L...for the past several years we can not end the summer without a stay at this inn. To picture this wonderful inn kindly direct your attention to my reviews of 6/14, 7/13 and 8/12. All attributes described therein remain current. Tom and Ali continue to take immaculate... More

Bob and Ivy! Two people who have become more like family at this point. We have been here at the inn for 17 years now (and doing this a lot longer than that!) and you see thousands of people come and go. It's always wonderful to have guests who come back year after year, enjoy the relaxed familiarity of Cape... More

Last month my wife and I spent three great days on Cape Cod thanks to Tom, Ali and Eileen. We were greeted warmly by Tom who made sure we were taken care of and answered all of our questions -- where to eat, what to see, Nantucket v. Martha's Vineyard, etc. Their notebook/binder in each room provides extremely helpful information... More

The hosts make this B&B as they are very welcoming when you arrive and are extremely helpful with knowledgeable with tips about the area. They provide a welcome book with info but you also can get discounts on the whale watching boat, tips on where to park, and where the secluded beaches are located. Rooms are all a bit different,...

The Cape Cod shower is one of our favorite features about the inn, so we are thrilled you "got it"! There is NOTHING better than waking up in the morning and taking a hot shower outdoors with a cool breeze, sunshine, seagulls flying overhead and the smell of salt air. OK, there are better things--way better, BUT it's still an... More

They really do get it right at this intimate jewel of an inn nestled in a quiet spot that's also walkable to the delightful village center of Barnstable. Accommodations are some of the most spacious we've experienced as frequent B&B guests. My husband and I were in Innkeepers Pride. The layout and elbow room in the closet and bath areas... More

What a lovely review--and an awesome family!!! We had a great time with these folks during poolside breakfasts and I'm pretty sure Ali had fires going for everyone in the evenings at that point--this family really knew how to have fun and quickly got into the "Lamb and Lion vibe". Since you're mentioning spotless I will give a shout out... More

Too short indeed! The Cape is BIG and you need time to hit all the hot spots and leave yourself enough room for chillin' by the pool! 3 days is really like 2 and a half days and that's the minimum a guest should plan on--self-guided driving tours, whale watching, the beach, mini golf, eating, shopping, the islands!?!

From the moment owner Ali answered the phone and my questions about the inn, I knew it was a good choice for my short getaway. When we arrived, we were greeted personally and given a short tour of the property, as well as tidbits about beaches and places to eat. Our room was HUGE and well appointed, the perfect blend...
