We picked the Lamb and Lion Inn to celebrate my daughter's graduation from college. It was a three generational trip of grandmother, mother and daughter. My daughter picked NYC and Cape Cod as our destination and I researched and came up with the Lamb and Lion Inn. From the moment we arrived in Barnstable, MA we fell in love with...

Wow, wow, wow!! What an amazing write up--and thank you so much for writing a little about our beautiful, quaint Barnstable Village. "The girls" stayed in the Lamb's Retreat which is a converted 1740 horse stable. Perfect for that kind of getaway--and we are so glad you loved the furnishings & decor! We are always upgrading, remodeling, etc., but in...

A warm welcome is always a good way to arrive and the owner Tom was on hand to deliver mine at this lovingly cared for historic property. I was given a lovely suite with it's own deck and real fireplace. It was like my own little cottage. As they were renovating the inn's kitchen at that time, I made breakfast...

What a lovely review--and from an amazing travel writer no less! We were so happy that you landed here with us while in the states, and it was a pleasure to have you here.

My wife, dog and I spent one night at the Inn. We were looking forward to staying at a dog friendly Inn.

We were going to close the inn during the 3-week renovation, but the spring was so busy with travelers we decided to keep the inn open, offering coffee and juice at a discounted rate. We found this option quite successful and we alerted all of our guests who contacted us directly that this was the case, however there were a...

The Lamb & Lion Inn is a great B&B located in a quiet area of Barnstable, Massachusetts. We selected this B&B based on other reviews and sure glad we did!

Recently spent a night here for a quick getaway. We were warmly greeted by Eileen who went out of her way to make us feel welcome.

Thank you! We really appreciate the kind words. Many people think of Cape Cod as a rockin' summer destination--but the travelers in "the know" come in October when the fall foliage is at it's peak, the dogs can romp on the beaches, the restaurants are open but not packed and the fall festivals are in high gear. Speaking of festivals,...
