My wife and I learned of this gem through dogfriendly.com of all places, and linked to their website. Having lived on the Cape previously for 4 years, I was familiar with their location off of scenic Rt 6A. We planned a last minute getaway and arrived on a Friday night. From the moment we drove onto the property to the Monday we reluctantly left for the real world, our experience at the Lamb and Lion was truly exceptional!
We stayed in Sweet Nine, which was perfect for us and our Keeshond Leif. The room was clean, comfortable, and its newly-redone bathroom featured a roomy 5-head shower. French doors led out to the poolside patio and hot tub. Although we didn't use them, there was also a rolling fireplace, gas grill, patio furniture, and an outside shower there for guests' use.
A nice continental-style breakfast was nicely laid out each morning in the nicely appointed sunroom located between the pool courtyard and the patio overlooking the secluded back deck. Each morning Ali (she and her partner Tom own and manage the Inn) would cook something special - homemade waffle sticks with real maple syrup, butterscotch muffins, country bread during our stay).
What stood out to us was the attentiveness of our hosts - always friendly, congenial, helpful, offering assistance.... always pleasant. Our whole stay was so-o-o relaxed. And the feeling of the property itself was so much of what one would hope the Cape Cod experience would be like. Hospitality, if it were rated above, would be 5 green dots as well!
We cannot say enough good things about our stay here - we will be visiting there again in future months/years!
