Lazy Dog Inn review top notch!

5 on July 06, 2014

If you had 20 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

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!

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!

Loved this place!

Sasha and I loved staying at Lazy Dog Inn!! We showed up and got a great tour of all the facilities (dog and human). Got a great recommendation from Steve on a smokehouse BBQ place to go for dinner. Wow, was it good! The next day my dog and I went hiking in the White Mountains. Steve gave me recommendations on places to hike. There were a few that he said that were still covered with snow. I also talked to someone at the ranger's station that gave places that he knew were not still covered with snow. Took a little tour of the "mom and pop" shops in town. Relaxed in the room that night while my dog was fast asleep. Breakfast both mornings was delicious! I would definitely come back! Maybe when the hiking trails are not covered with snow anymore. I would recommend Lazy Dog Inn to all my dog loving friends and family!!

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.
