Dog Friendly to the MAX

4.2 on December 15, 2014

When your dog is like a child, you wish to find lodging that is welcoming to both dog and owner. My ten year terrier, PJ enjoyed his stay in the Puppy Lodge as we ate each morning a full breakfast prepare by the owners. Steve is always on hand at the lodge and an expert on the area. You will never go wrong staying at the Lazy Dog Inn.

Wondeful staff and guests alike! We had a blast and are already planning a return trip next year!

Great Experience

5 on November 18, 2014

We enjoyed our stay. Lauren and Steve were wonderful. We stayed three nights and it was fun and very relaxing. Lot's to do with the dogs in the area and great places to eat and shop. The breakfast each morning was amazing as well. We enjoyed sitting by the fireplace with the dogs in the evening. It felt like true New England particularly when it snowed a bit and it was on the trees outside the Inn.

Best Inn for your fur child!

4.0 on November 17, 2014

This is our fifth visit to the Inn. Steven, Lauren and MacKenzie(the latest rescue) are wonderful hosts and our dog Lola loves going to her yearly retreat in New Hampshire. I can't think of enough words to say how pleasant our stays are.

Charming B&B

Very pleasant and clean, very dog-oriented.

Everything about the Lazy Dog Inn is OUTSTANDING

5 on October 29, 2014

Everything was outstanding. My dog is 7 now and we have been going to the Lazy Dog since she was 3 months old. At this point, I feel like Steve and Lauren, the Innkeepers are old friends - I love catching up with them and Steve's breakfasts are out of this world! My boyfriend and I went on a hike for the day, and while we were gone, Peanut was fed and was brought outside with Steve for almost two hours. What more could you ask for? I don't think there is another place that caters to dogs like they do!

Our favorite!

This place is such a gem! You and your pups are always welcome and always feel like age old friends! The location couldn't be better, it's close to dining, shopping, hiking, everything!

Doggie heaven

5 on October 27, 2014

We have stayed at the Lazy Dog Inn many times over the past 8-9 years. Visiting has become something of a family tradition for our us. We have so many fond memories of our visits. Steve and Lauren are wonderful hosts who love dogs of all shapes and sizes. They always have great suggestions for things to do and see in the area. They keep the inn impeccably clean (I have no idea how that they do it, but there is not a trace of doggie smell) and the rooms are remarkably quiet even with all the dogs. And the breakfasts are amazing! We always look forward to coming back.

Loved Lazy Dog Inn

4.6 on October 16, 2014

This was our 3rd visit to Lazy Dog Inn, and probably not our last. The rooms are cozy, comfortable, clean, and just what you would want to find in a New England B&B, with or without dogs! The hosts are most friendly, personable, and very helpful and knowledgeable about their inn and surrounding tourists sites, restaurants, etc. For dog lovers its especially nice to have all the advantages of a great B&B, and you can also have your doggie family included.

Our dogs love this place!

Always a great time at the Lazy Dog.
