Exceeded my expectations

3.6 on August 15, 2014

In terms of dog care, the Lazy Dog Inn was wonderful. Facilities were clean and comfortable, warm and welcoming. The rooms within the Inn itself were free of any odor from previous dogs or guests, which is no small achievement. Steve was a most gracious and accommodating host. Not only does he truly care for dogs, but his help and patience with humans was wonderful as well. He provided directions, maps, day trip suggestions - all based on the comfort zone of the guest and their dogs.

Wonderful stay!

This dog friendly inn made for a perfect stay in this beautiful section of New Hampshire. The innkeepers were helpful in planning dog friendly day trips and dining options. The dog play area and kennel were clean and welcoming. We really appreciated the guest kitchen because it was well stocked and so convenient. The inn is close to family friendly attractions and the shopping outlets in Conway. We did some great hiking and enjoyed the beautiful lake nearby the inn. Breakfast was delicious and the public areas of the inn are welcoming. We would definitely return and stay in the Molly room again!

Wonderful, friendly, hospitable home which welcomed us with our dog and offered great advice about local sights, restaurants, and dog friendly spots. We definitely plan to return! Highly recommended, whether you bring a dog or not.

A great weekend

I highly recommend the this place! Steve and Lauren are all about both two and four legged guests. Steve's knowledge of hikes/walks with your dog and great places to eat, where you can bring pet, really made our three day visit. Steve is also very knowledgeable of dogs, period. He gave us the confidence to take our 16 mos old golden retriever deep into the wood, off the Kangamangus. Thanks, Steve! Fred and ML

Wonderful time in the White Mountains

We have been coming to Lazy Dog Inn for a few years now. We always know our dogs are looked after when we go out without them. The rooms are always clean, breakfast is always good. The Inn Keepers always make sure you have what you need. Can't wait to return.

Lazy Dog Inn review top notch!

If you had 10 stars to pick from Lazy Dog Inn would get 10 stars in all categories! Friendly, helpful, clean, fabulous breakfasts, rooms are decorated perfectly. Your doggies will have as much fun as you will. Most places that say they are dog friendly have no place to leave your dogs while you go out out to eat, or if you want to leave the dogs behind. Lazy Dog Inn has a kennel on the premises. We have stayed 2 times with our 2 dogs and cannot wait for our next visit. Colleen and Rick Peck

Another Amazing Stay

5 on May 29, 2014

We have been staying at the LDI for years now. Steve and Lauren treat you like family. The rooms are quaint. Breakfast is always amazing. Steve and Lauren take care of your dog(s) like they are their own. Love, Love, Love it there. Can't wait to get back!

A must stop if you have a dog!

4.6 on May 20, 2014

This was our 3rd visit and we will be back again. Lauren was not there this weekend, but Steven was a delight as always. Our dog could not do the hikes we were there to do, but Steven made sure she had a wonderful visit as well. Being that it was a doggie group everyone understood when our nervous dog paced the first night. It truly is a place for us to go and relax!

Welcoming, Super Clean and Dog Loving!

Grace (golden mix) and I stayed for two nights at the inn to visit friends in the area. First, we were later than expected, which was Steve, the inn keeper, just rolled with. When we arrived I was pleasantly surprised about how sparkling clean the inn is, given that it caters to canine guests. When I say "caters" they have thought of every detail to make the stay pleasant and easy for both two legged and four legged guests. There was a full size refridge for Grace's raw food, towels for wiping wet feet and fur, brushes and toys and I could go on and on. I loved the chest of things at the top of the stairs that people might forget, toothbrushes, toothpaste and the like. I didn't need to open it but again every detail is thought of. The accommodations allow for the guests to leave the dogs in a covered kennel area if they plan for activities that cannot include their dogs. I felt that it was a safe, loving environment for both of us. That is especially important as a woman traveling alone. Steve is an awesome cook and I ate two delicious breakfasts there. The coffee was excellent, the bed was comfortable and the shower had great pressure. These details did not go unnoticed and were greatly appreciated. The most important thing to add is that Steve was extremely gracious about several juvenile canine mishaps, as it was Grace's first trip from home. Needless to say, I learned a bit more about her and have a new awareness of what to watch for when visiting someone else's home. Would we go back? You bet!
