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!

3.6 on October 16, 2014

Always a great time at the Lazy Dog.

Our dogs were welcomed with open arms

4.2 on October 04, 2014

We are getting ready to check out from our two night stay. Thank you to Steve for being so welcoming to both our dogs. He greeted Emma appropriately when we arrived as she can be a nervous dog, and he won her trust instantly! Later he took the time to introduce our girls to Mack on an off leash walk. He even thought to provide a sheet in the kennel area so we could cover the gate for less distraction. Both Emma and Zuzu slept soundly both nights and were very comfortable in our room.

Friendly and fun

5 on October 01, 2014

We had a great stay here -- the owners are incredibly warm and friendly and gave great recommendations for what to do and where to eat in the area.

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!

4.4 on August 11, 2014

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!

Doggie Heaven

4.6 on August 08, 2014

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

4.4 on August 03, 2014

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

Scarlet says book this place!

4.8 on July 31, 2014

Without a doubt I would recommend this place to everyone. You and your dog will be well taken care of. The location serves as a great base location to explore the area.

Wonderful time in the White Mountains

5 on July 10, 2014

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.

About the innkeepers

Our hobbies are having fun with our two Golden Retrievers Meghan and Molly. With all of the wonderful lakes and hiking trials we love to take them swimming and hiking. We also spend all of our spare time with as many doggie activities we can.
