The Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 3 Whitefield B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 6, 2007

We spent two nights at The Lion and the Rose. Our room was the new Egyptian Room and the room is very nicely decorated and has many amenities including a big jacuzzi tub. Each morning for breakfast we had a choice of several seating times (8, 9, or 10) and the food was delicious and we never left the table hungry.
The B & B is located in a town that has very little to offer (no fun shops at all) and it takes almost a half hour to drive to a town with any variety of shops and restaurants. We felt so isolated in the area that the second day we decided to drive an hour to get to North Conway and spend the day browsing in town ( the nicer section near the wonderful old railroad station).

My husband and I recently spent a night at the Lion and The Rose as an anniversary celebration. The house is even prettier on the inside than it is on the outside. Roger and Chris make you feel like you are returning home after being gone, they are so welcoming and warm and it is so evident that they love what they do. We stayed in the Lion's Den, that had the most comfortable king sized bed I've ever slept in. The two person jacuzzi tub was great. Everything was so clean and comfortable, I can't say enough about it. The breakfast was the icing on the cake - the stuffed french toast was out of this world. One thing to note is that we had dinner at the Woodburn House down the street which I would NOT recommend. There are several nice restaurants in the neighboring towns of Lancaster and L ittleton, your best bet is to go there instead. Overall, a wonderful night at the Lion and The Rose.

Staying at B&Bs was not something I had done in the past, but Roger and Chris have completely spoiled me. They are such wonderful people. My family and I stayed there in December of '05 for our annual Christmas Tree weekend. We go to NH, spend a day at Santa's Village, and then get our Christmas Tree at The Rocks estate. Our stay at The Lion and the Rose was so far above my expectations. Chris met us with fresh baked cookies still hot from the oven. She then took us on a tour and very proudly showed off the rooms, each one having a very unique theme. The attention to detail is superior; fresh flowers in the rooms, bath salts for the rooms with tubs, etc. We had 2 rooms. My husband and I stayed in the Lion's Den and my 2 girls stayed in the Far East room. Each room has a key so security is not a concern (not that it was). Roger and Chris then joined us in the living room with more cookies for the girls and wine and appetizers for my husband and me. We had such a nice conversation. They have great stories and also fantastic recommendations for where to eat and shops to check out.
The food was fantastic. Dinner was chicken parm. I'm usually picky about my sauce but Chris' was delicious!! Breakfast was incredible. One day was pancakes any way (plain for my youngest, blueberry for my husband and myself, and chocolate chip for my older daughter). The second day's breakfast was Chris' famous stuffed french toast!!! To DIE FOR! Breakfast was always served with fresh fruit and their special key lime tarts. When Chris found out that key lime is my favorite, she made me extra!
All in all our trip was perfect. Chris and Roger do a wonderful job. Their granddaughter Moriah was great, too, doting on my 2 girls! I highly recommend staying there. I can't wait to go back!

This B&B is absolutely fabulous. Everyone traveling to this area should try to stay there and request the Lion's Den. The details in the decor are incredible! Chris and Roger are the most friendly and gracious innkeepers I have ever stayed with. They were very helpful in planning our trip to area attractions. And their inn is the most beautiful I have ever seen. Pictures and words do not do it justice. And the breakfasts...wow. I am a rather fussy eater and they were so accomadating. I was very impressed. The food was amazing. We were treated to French toast, pancakes and homefiies and sausage. Not to mention the fresh fruit, juice, tea and you must try their apple muffins! The room was huge, and had a large bathroom with a large two person jacuzzi tub and relaxing bath salts. The bed was huge and comfy. The room was very quiet and we slept very well. I really can't wait to go back as soon as possible. If you are looking for a B&B in this area, The Lion and the Rose is the one for you!

There are many things that are wonderful about The Lion and the Rose B&B. Let's start with the hosts: Courteous, helpful and accommodating hosts Roger and Chris. Never intrusive, yet warm and friendly, we felt so comfortable, as if we were old friends visiting for the weekend, and didn't want to leave after our brief stay.
Now, about the breakfasts... Wow. The first day we were there we were served fresh fruit, coffee, juice, fresh blueberry muffins (made from scratch), pancakes (blueberry, chocolate chip and plain) and ham. The second day's breakfast consisted of the fruit, coffee, muffins again (again, made that morning from scratch), stuffed french toast with raspberry sauce (made from freshly picked raspberries) and maple sausage. Again, WOW! Oh, and all of this is served in an elegant Victorian style dining room, surrounded by antiques, a crystal chandelier, candelabras... you get the idea.
A perfect day would be one of these breakfasts followed by exploring the area, then a nice dinner at the Woodburn House at the bottom of the hill on the town green. Then just walk back to the B&B, relax and soak in the hot tub.
There are many activities to do in the beautiful White Mountain region. Roger and Chris were really helpful with suggestions. Hiking, enjoying the natural surroundings in the summer. Very close to several ski areas in the winter. Great location. Or if you don't want to do anything it's nice to sit and read in the private garden at The Lion and the Rose.
But back to the B&B. It's very clean, the rooms and beds are comfortable (we stayed in a suite), every attention has been paid to detail. It's an incredibly romantic place, the perfect B&B, and a bargain for the price. If you're looking for the ideal New England B&B, this is it. And if you aren't impressed, the B&B experience is simply not for you.
