Lamb and Lion Inn
Table Of Contents
"The Lamb and Lion Inn is an award-winning Cape Cod Inn with the spirit and amenities of a small luxury hotel." ~ Car & Driver
Nestled on 4 acres of Cape Cod's unspoiled historic district, guests at the Lamb and Lion enjoy lots of privacy with spacious suites, all with private baths, and separate guest entrances and exits (no curfews, and no tip-toeing around someone's living room!). The Inn is located about 1 mile from beautiful Barnstable Harbor (and the whale watch boat!) and just a few short minutes from all the best beaches, shopping and restaurants that Cape Cod has to offer. Here you have the very best of both worlds...the peaceful setting of "Old Cape Cod", yet you're less than 10 minutes from the nightlife and shops of colorful Main Street, Hyannis!
The diversity of accommodations is one of the many perks that the Lamb and Lion has to offer...Ultra-clean suites with wood-burning fireplaces, cozy rooms with gas fireplace stoves, and some with full kitchens. Some suites can accommodate a family or a small group of friends. All of the rooms are just a few steps away from the central courtyard which features a heated pool and giant year-round hot tub spa, and all the rooms feature top-of-the-line bedding, private in-room baths, cable TV, wireless internet, A/C, sitting areas and telephones. Extras include free self-guided driving tours, discount whale watch tickets tons of maps, menus and dining recommendations, and a full-service spa and yoga studio. Inn guests may also bring their well-behaved pets , with restrictions.
Lamb's Retreat Guest Room
All room rates include our very unique Gourmet Continental Breakfast (with add-on options) which can feature anything from Ali's "famous" granola (once featured in Bon Appetit Magazine), slow-roasted fruit, "Monkey Bread", and "Gooey Caramel-Orange Ring". Breakfast is served in the same laid back fashion as the Inn is run. You can have your breakfast any time you like, and you can enjoy it anywhere you like--in the Breakfast Sunroom, on the back decks poolside...or back in your suite! After you fill up on breakfast take a short walk to our local beach, hike a trail in the beautiful conservation land right across from the Inn, or just veg-out poolside with a good book!
The Inn can also accommodate small conferences, intimate private functions and special family gatherings
--anything from a small wedding to a family reunion. The courtyard and grounds are perfect for a
poolside barbecue--grills and grilling utensils are always available!
Another perk includes the two Innkeeper's extensive hospitality backgrounds. The goal is to consistantly surpass your already high expectations. How? You name it! The Lamb and Lion guest services book, located in every room, lists and discribes over five pages of the best, nearby restaurants (from the "shackiest" of clam shacks to the very finest in fine dining), directions to the closest beaches (one within walking distance!), the best Cape Cod museums, the nicest hiking, biking, shopping and golfing. The Innkeepers have also created custom "take-away driving tours" from every direction, so you won't miss a thing. The tours point out every interesting and cool secret along the way! What else do you need? Want to surprise him with an in-room massage? The Lamb and Lion can get a certified masseuse to your room, male or female, cheaper than any other Inn on the Cape. Wine? Cheese? Same deal. We will find you the "good stuff", and for less money! Want to surprise her with chocolate covered strawberries? Made in-house with only the finest chocolate...
We always keep this in mind...We are fortunate to live on Cape Cod year round, but we realize that for YOU this stay might be something you've been wanting, or needing, for a long time. This might be your one and only getaway this year. No matter what the situation, we will do everything we can to make sure that you make the most of your stay on beautiful Cape Cod.
