“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2011

My wife and I have stayed at many of B&Bs during ski season and I have to say this is the best one yet. The inn keepers, Chris and Roger were very warming and welcoming, from the moment we stepped out of our car. This is a one of a kind inn. The rooms are very clean and delightful. Each room is differently themed, not leaving out any detail. The inn itself is different, there is antique furniture that lines the hallways and living room. The chairs and couches which are situated in the living room are filled with curiosity and you cannot help but to sit on them. The king size bed we slept on, was like sleeping on a cloud, not that I ever slept on a cloud but you get the picture. The following morning we had breakfast. Back to detail, now this was not just any old breakfast, but a breakfast that was served on a silver platter (literally) with lit candelabras placed on the table, you can say this was a breakfast fit for a king. This is an inn that you can only experience for yourself because reading about and seeing it in person are two very different things. Best of all was the price.

We returned yet again to our favorite home away from home, and were again not disappointed. You can travel the world at The Lion and The Rose, staying in a different country every night based on the room you choose. The innkeepers, Roger and Chris, are warm, welcoming and attentive to your every need (even before you know you have a need!) From afternoon snacks to 'happy hour' to a breakfast that is as much an experience as a dining pleasure, you just can't go wrong. Oh and did I mention the hot tub? Or the decor in the common areas (that just teases at what awaits in your room?).
This is a must stay B&B and a destination worth the travel. Can't wait to make up a reason to go again!

The Owners are great and made us feel very welcome and catered to our every need. The room was large with a very comfortable king size bed with a large hot tub for two with a view. We had a his & her sinks & showers that was out of this world. The food here was excellent with more than you could eat. I would recomend this bed & breakfast to everyone. I enjoyed my stay more here than any of the other small or large hotel that I have ever stayed at.

We went with our 6 month old and stayed in the Avalon Room on the first level which was great for not carrying our infant car seat up and down extra stairs. After being spoiled of our European travels this was a wonderful eclectic B&B. The fact that we were considering going for another little mini weekend, but to the same B&B, says volumes.

Good location, clean throughout entire house, AWESOME friendliness, comfortable stay. Rodger and Chris were so friendly and helpful, it felt like we were staying with family, not just another overnight lodger. Breakfast was fantastic! Local syrup and sausage were served.
Chris and Rodger went out of their way to provide us with details, maps, and brochures of local attractions and happenings. They even called some places we talked about visiting to ensure the site was open. Both Chris and Rodger are ideal inn keepers! They exude customer service, we felt pampered and special even though we're just regular folks. They made our visit special, and no doubt we will return because of this level of service.

Roger and Chris are the best! They are extremely warm, caring people who are prepared for their guests and do what they can to accommodate each guests needs. We were on our way there after dark and called Chris to tell her we were running late. Chris immediately made us a dinner reservation at the nearby resort, to ensure that we would be able to dine there before the kitchen closed. We enjoyed a beautiful dinner and found Chris and Roger to be very hospitable. Our room looked exactly like the picture online, was clean and comfortable. We only wished we had enough time to use the hot tub!

... as The Lion and the Rose was a really lovely place. Perfectly situated for the White Mountains in New Hampshire, it does look and feel a little dated, and not because of the 'haute Victorian' theme.

We liked: the cleanliness and size of rooms, lovely warm comforter on the bed and afternoon tea and cookies.

That said, if you're after a place that's hands off, this isn't the place for you. We felt a little pushed and pulled and disliked not being left to our own devices. Welcoming us at the desk, one of the first thing was we were asked was to pay up! We also felt a little pressured by the innkeepers' tendency to hover.

We're definitely nit picking, but by this point on a ten day tour of New England's inns we knew what we liked. And while we'd recommend it to others, we'd probably look for somewhere else next time.
