We had a wonderful time at the B&B. Chris and Roger were egger to make us as comfortable as possible. The Egyptian room was wonderful with the 2 person Jacuzzi tub and gas fireplace. Breakfast was amazing and we would definitely go back again! Yvonne & Billy
5 on January 22, 2015
Chris and Roger are very personal. We felt like we were just part of the family. Had a couple other couples that have been going back to The Lion and The Rose for years and made it a very comfortable experience. Chris & Roger had great recommendations for places to eat and things to do in the area. Great for us as it is the first time we have been up this way. I would recommend to anyone and we will definitely be back soon!
5 on December 23, 2014
The Lion and the Rose is one of the most beautiful and lovely B&B's we have ever stayed at. From the moment we arrived Chris and Roger went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome and comfortable. They are faultless in their hospitality and are extremely knowledgeable and helpful about local things to do/see and places to eat. Our room (The Lion's den) was beautiful, spotlessly clean, and the spa bath was the icing on the cake! We have recommended The Lion and the Rose to everyone we know and will definitely be planning a return visit. A huge thanks to Chris and Roger for making our stay and engagement such a wonderful and memorable experience!!

Roger and Chris are very nice. The stuffed French toast is excellent! Had a very good stay.

We having stayed in many a B & B but this one blew us away. It has the charm of an old Victorian "painted lady" and the spunk of Punch & Judy. Chris, the innkeeper and hubby, encourage you to sit upon the throne which lies in the front parlor and hold audience with a crown or tiara upon your head. We stayed in the Egyptian Room which was adorned with rugs, lamps and wall hangings, and yes, another throne The furniture was exquisite! We will try to return here often. Oct.14

Wonderful Band B nestled in the White Mountains. Highly recommend staying here! We came all the way from TX. Warm and hospitable. Great breakfast.
4.6 on October 01, 2014
Our room (The lion's den) was very clean and comfortable. We arrived at the inn early evening and we were not sure where to go for a dinner but the restaurant (The Inn ?? - I forget the name) that the host suggested was located near by and excellent.

I feel very comfortable staying here. It's like I'm part of the "family".

I attended some meetings at the Mt. Washington Hotel but wanted to become more familiar with the area, so found the Lion and The Rose. It was a lovely 20 minute ride and took you around the mountail so you had a different perspective. The hosts were hospitable and although I did not participate in meals, the table setting and smells were enticing.
4.8 on September 09, 2014
Chris & Roger are very friendly & accomodating. rooms are very comfortable and decorated in interesting and fun ways. house itself and public lounge area very victorian. great place to stay and great value.

Chris and Roger were perfect hosts and we already can't wait to return for ski season. So charming and clean, and breakfast was out of this world! Highly recommended!
4.4 on September 01, 2014
Chris and Roger are very friendly people and they know what are able to advise you on the various services around their B&B. The rooms are super clean and we even had washer and dryer in the Avalon room. Convenient after a long day of hiking in Mounts Washington and Jefferson !
5 on August 19, 2014
This was my first time staying at a B&B and The Lion & The Rose was an enjoyable & pleasant experience. Chris & Roger are so nice and made us feel so welcome. It felt like a home away from home. I really enjoyed the wonderful breakfast that we had each day. Chris was very helpful with suggestions of places to visit in the area. The next time I travel to this area, I hope there is a vacancy at the The Lion & The Rose. Leslie & Lloyd
5 on August 18, 2014
Just got back from our second visit to The Lion and The Rose B&B. The proprietors Chris and Roger are lovely people who welcome you into their home. Their breakfast is outstanding and the themed rooms are comfortable and clean.
5 on August 09, 2014
If you want to eat the most delicious breakfast, sleep in a lovely themed room with a private bath, have a glass of wine and cheese and crackers in the late afternoon, and enjoy the company of your charming and accommodating hosts, then The Lion and The Rose is the perfect B&B Get Away! The antique furnishings, stained glass windows, and the White Mountains in the distance make it memorable place to stay.
4.8 on August 08, 2014
For our first time staying at a B&B, it was very relaxing. Roger & Chris are very friendly, informative and hospitable. Thank you!!!

A quiet place perfect to relax.

The owners were very pleasant people and cordial. They did not hesitate to accommodate with requests. The stay was quiet and pleasant. Though the rooms small, they were very cozy and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The breakfast was very nice and sociable. Something you do no normally see in a hotel or motel. All in all it was a very nice and if in the area I would book a night or two with them again. Thank you Lion and The Rose

Chris and Roger were more than hospitable, and welcomed me with open arms.

We had a relaxing and peaceful time at the Lion and the Rose B&B. the rooms are beautiful and well appointed. Innkeepers friendly and helpful :)
5 on May 18, 2014
Chris and Roger were very welcoming and accommodating. We stayed in the White Lilac room, which was both pretty and immaculately clean. The bed was very comfy, and the room has a coffee maker and a mini fridge, which I did not expect in a B&B. Breakfast was delicious and elegantly served. Roger was happy to tell us about the history of the house and give us a tour when we asked.
5 on May 04, 2014
My wife and I went to the area for a relaxing weekend away only to find that our original plans fell through. We came upon this B&B and were welcomed with open arms. We couldn't have been happier this past weelend! Roger and Chris went out of their way to make us feel at home, provide a wealth of information about the area, delicious breakfast, wonderful rooms, and overall wonderful time! We felt like family all weekend! Look forward to going back again in the future!
4.6 on April 20, 2014
Very nice & cozy B&B, with a nice sitting room & dining room.

Lovely place and accommodating friendly hosts.

Thank you for making our yearly trip so amazing. You two always put so much love into your b&b and it shows. And you make us feel so welcomed when we arrive. We can't wait to come back next year.
5 on February 04, 2014
We stayed at The Lion and The Rose in early January and had an absolutely amazing time! Roger and Chris were incredibly warm and gracious hosts - we definitely look forward to staying at The Lion and The Rose again!
5 on January 16, 2014
The room was larger than we expected and every bit as special as we had hoped. Comfortable, clean and perfect for the romantic getaway we had been looking for. Our hosts were gracious and extremely knowledgeable about the area and guided us to a local restaurants and other area attractions.
4.4 on January 02, 2014
People were very nice, food was very good, and the room was also good. The only problem we had was that it was very hot in our room and could not sleep even after shutting the radiator off. All in all a great value and we will go back, albeit with some confidence that the heat can be controlled better.
Thank you, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry about the heat problem...when it is below zero we would rather you be hot and open a window than be freezing. As with older homes the heat tries to keep up with the rooms. We will take care of that the next time we see you!

I needed a reasonably priced place to stay to attend a wedding in upstate NH and The Lion and The Rose was listed by the bride and groom as nearby to the reception site. I opened the website and immediately fell in love with the place. The hosts were warm, friendly and very attentive. The room was cozy but spacious and the food superb. I definitely would return if my travels bring me to northern N.H. again!!
4.0 on November 13, 2013
Our night at the Lion & Rose was a great experience. Roger & Chris met us with a warm smile; ready to help in anyway needed. The room and inn were beautiful. Chris made a great breakfast. There was a nearby party that everyone staying that evening was attending. They called to confirm the time before we all arrived. It's small things like that and just friendly regular folks running a nice inn that make it great. The price was very affordable for the amenities we had.
4.6 on November 03, 2013
Comfortable and clean with great service and hospitality.
5 on October 28, 2013
The Lion and the Rose is a great place to spend a couple days. We were so impressed with the lovely room, comfortable bed, delicious breakfast and the good company. The house is beautifully maintained with lots of interesting furniture and antiques. Hope to return soon!
5 on October 28, 2013
Delicious breakfasts; stayed 3 nights on business in the area; quiet time of the year, so I mostly had the house to myself. Will need to come back with family and friends in the summer.
4.4 on October 21, 2013
During October 2013 we stayed at this B & B and we can highly recommend the standard of the rooms and the hospitality of the owners. We had a fantastic time at Whitefield and there are some great restaurants within 20 miin drive that are well worth a visit. The hosts at the B & B knew the landscape very well and directed us to some wonderful dining experiences. If you want to see the fall colours and have some knowledgeable advice on where to go & what to see then we would recommend The Lion & The Rose. It is a quirky place - almost eccentric in character but that is what made it stand out from the many bland accommodation options that are available elsewhere. This is a place to enjoy - not simply a place to sleep.
4.6 on October 19, 2013
Friendly people and very helpful with dinner recommendations and directions to other services in town. Breakfast was wonderful with lots to eat and a nice selection of fruit to follow. Would definitely stay again if in that area.
4.4 on October 17, 2013
We really enjoyed our stay here. The 'innkeepers' were so very nice and accommodating!
4.6 on October 08, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful B&B in the heart of NH. It's location was ideal for viewing and exploring the surrounding area. You can't go wrong by selecting this for you stay!
4.4 on October 08, 2013
We recently stayed for a night in The Lions Den and had a blast. The bed was comfy, the jacuzzi spacious enough for two, and breakfast the next morning was lovely!
5 on October 07, 2013
The hosts were friendly, helpful and quite enjoyable to visit with. We appreciated the dining recommendations as well as touring directions. The breakfast was over the top delicious.
4.2 on September 25, 2013
Roger and Chris are the perfect hosts.

simply an overnight stay made most pleasant by kind, attentive and informative hosts.
4.6 on September 24, 2013
This was my first stay at a b&b and I wasn't really sure what to expect. We chose this location based purely off of reviews online and word of mouth from people who've stayed there. I could not have been happier with this decision. One thing I'd really like to note is that I'm 24 and my boyfriend is 29 and we absolutely LOVED it. I was worried that a bed and breakfast was going to cater to more of an older crowd but the host and hostess were absolutely welcoming and so kind and didn't treat us like a couple of kids- but like the adults we are. Another thing I should say is that I'm not a "people person" in the morning, and I was really freaked out about the idea of having breakfast with a group of strangers but the second we sat down and our hosts introduced us to the other guests we just felt right at home. While dining on amazing food, we had a truly memorable conversation with people from all over who had awesome stories of their travels and what brought them there that weekend. Spending the money to stay in the Egyptian room was something we went back and forth on but I'm so incredibly glad we did! It was exactly as they described it- And it was amazing. For a weekend getaway I don't think I'd go anywhere else from now on- truly the most memorable place I've ever stayed. I hope to stay much longer next time we visit! If you're on the fence, stop flip flopping and do it- this place is amazing! - Julie, Massachusetts

couldn't have been more satisfied

Our host and hostess were just GREAT! They made our stay. We felt like we were the king and Queen as we stayed in there Egyptian room. We can't wait to return and try the other theme rooms.

Great folks, lovely building and rooms. Accommodated me with scheduling.

Chris and Roger are amazing hosts!
4.4 on August 25, 2013
My fiance and I were visiting family and we decided to stay at this lovely B&B. We'd never stayed in one before so we didn't know what to expect, but we were more than pleasantly surprised by our stay! Our room was quaint and had it's own entrance! They provided us with two very warm robes that were fantastic! Breakfast was AMAZING! It was clean and well-maintained. Hosts Chris and Roger were friendly and helpful, and their cats were adorable! The B&B also had Wifi, which helped me get some homework done! It was a great experience and we hope to visit again!
4.6 on August 19, 2013
Found everything to be as advertised will stay here again.
5 on August 12, 2013
From accommodations to service and more, the Lion and the Rose goes above and beyond to please their guests. I will certainly be returning.
4.4 on August 06, 2013
Roger and Chris were EXCELLENT, INFORMATIVE hosts! My husband and I had a first rate experience!
5 on July 31, 2013
My husband and I stayed here at the B&B while we attended a wedding at the Mountain View Grand Resort (we looked into staying at the Mountain View but it was much more expensive). Boy are we glad that we chose to stay at the B&B which is only 5 minutes down the road. The housekeepers are very nice and helpful people that genuinely care about their guest. We stayed in the Avalon room and it had a very comfy king bed and was a good size. Also the breakfast each morning was AMAZING! Next time we are in the area we will definitely stay here again.
4.2 on July 30, 2013
The Lion and the Rose was the friendly B&B that I have ever stayed at. The owners go out of their way to make everyone feel welcomed . Upon our arrival we were upgraded to a very nice room. We were given a couple of glasses of wine and a plate of cheeses. All and all a delighted experience . I would definitely go back again.
4.8 on July 29, 2013
Excellent place to stay and centrally located for the beautiful vies of the White Mountains. The owners Chris and Roger were excellent host and were very friendly. Only the second time in 40 years of vacationing that we stayed in a B&B, and we were very pleased with our choice. The home is very beautiful and well kept up. Everything was extremely clean. Wonderful breakfasts which changed each day and elegantly served. Rooms had everything you would need including plush robes for the guests. Will definitely try to stay there again the next time we come to that area.
5 on July 25, 2013
We were warmly greeted by the owners, who took the time to show us the features of our rooms. Our room was large and clean with many amenities, which, unfortunately, we did not have time to use. Breakfast the next morning was outstanding. We would highly recommend this establishment.

If you are spending time in the White Mountains ,hiking in Franconia State Park, or taking in the beautiful views of Flume Gorge- do consider The Lion and the Rose B&B for their wonderful hospitality. J and S

The Fiance and I decided to come up to this area on a whim over the Fourth of July weekend and we were happily surprised to find out that this inn had an availability for Saturday evening. So, we booked the Far East room and came on up. When we first arrived, the owners - Chris and Roger - were very warm and welcoming. They ushered us right up to our room, which was actually the Rose Garden suite. They had given us an upgrade! It was a pleasant surprise as it had a rockin' two person jacuzzi bath tub! The room was very cozy and quaint. It had a mini fridge with a couple of bottles of water, a coffee pot and a nice flat screen t.v. (if you're into watching t.v. when you're on vacation at a B&B, that is). They had the little window unit just a blowin' and the room was a pleasant, cool temperature right when we walked in. The bed was firmer than our bed at home - but not so much as to say we were laying on concrete. The sheets and the towels and the plush bathrobes were sooooo soft and amazing! The Fiance is a sucker for plush bath towels and wanted to give it a 10 star just based on that alone. The breakfast the next morning was incredible. Chris made cream cheese stuffed French toast with a raspberry dipping sauce. And it was truly amazeballs! They had legit maple syrup that tasted as if they just siphoned it out of the tree in the backyard. There was plenty of coffee offered up with fresh cream (can't tell you how it tasted as we're tea drinkers) and a zillion types of teas were also available. Overall, the experience was wonderful and we hope to come back very soon! Thanks for the wonderful and relaxing time, y'all!
5 on July 03, 2013
We really enjoyed our first stay here! We went up to NH for the weekend from Boston. We spent most of Saturday walking nature trails and swimming as we went up NH, grabbed some dinner in Lincoln, and then went to the B&B. We were tired and super excited to relax in our very own jacuzzi in our Egyptian room. It was just wonderful. The bed was very comfy and we slept well. The Eqyptian Room came with it's own private deck, and the weather was beautiful, so we read there before going down for our 9am breakfast. Breakfast was tasty - raspberry stuffed french toast and fresh fruit. I would definitely come back again, and would be back sooner if it wasn't 3 hours from Boston.
4.4 on June 05, 2013
Very good, would go back.
5 on April 28, 2013
Thank you Roger and Chris for a wonderful night. We are grateful for you taking us in as family. Truly enjoyed the comforts of your bed and breakfast. Your stuffed French toast breakfast was to die for. We hope to come back and enjoy your hospitality and the comfort of another wonderful room. Jerry and Dannie of Laconia.
4.8 on March 11, 2013
The Lion and the Rose is a great place to stay to have a scenic trip to the White Mountains. It's within striking distance from places like Littleton (with Chutters) and Sugar Hill (with Polly's Pancakes). Their rooms are themed (like the Egyptian room with appropriate decor), but the main house has a wonderful Edwardian feel. Chris and Roger treat you like family and make you feel the need to come back for another visit.
5 on March 06, 2013
From the minute I arrived after a harrowing drive in snow I felt the comfort of this warm, hospitable inn. I spent two days here and by the time I left, I knew this would be my preferred place to stay on my business trips in the North Country or planning a long weekend in New Hampshire's Grand North and White Mountains.... Love this place!
5 on March 05, 2013
We stayed in the Egyptian room, it was great The jacuzzi tub is wonderful to lounge in and watch the hills beyond . Chris and Roger are super friendly and outgoing, willing to make sure your stay is an enjoyable one. Breakfast was great! Beautifully furnished, clean rooms and common areas.
4.6 on February 28, 2013
Beautiful accommodations and attention to detail. Innkeepers are personable and friendly. Provided excellent advice on local restaurants.
5 on February 24, 2013
From the moment we drove into the driveway, we were greeted by Chris and Roger. They made you feel like family. The B&B is beautifully kept. They were very helpful with telling us what was in the area. Breakfast was a variety and beautifully presented. First time at a B&B and I know I will return. You were made to feel like a King!
5 on February 11, 2013
Beginning with a genuinely warm greeting from Chris and Roger, the owner of The Lion and The Rose B&B, and finishing with a wonderful home-made breakfast of stuffed french toast, raspberry compote, sausage links and real maple syrup, our stay at this lovely and whimsical bed and breakfast was completely enjoyable. The theme rooms are fun but not over-the-top, stuff your face in the theme and drown you in it overboard. Our hosts were attentive and informative, giving us lots of ideas for side-trips. There are personal touches everywhere, and a feeling of home, only the cleaning has already done (and done to perfection!) Of all the B&Bs I've stayed in, this one ranks among my favorites!
5 on February 05, 2013
This really was a fantastic stay. I recommend it to anyone looking for a great time and friendly service, as well as a stellar breakfast!! The caretakers are always very kind and helpful they make each guest feel at home! I plan on returning next year!
4.8 on January 28, 2013
Chris & Roger are wonderful hosts. Greeted with a glass of wine and good conversation on a very cold winter weekend. We loved the Inn and the tips for surrounding sites. A great place to relax . Highly recommended. A joy !
5 on January 23, 2013
From the moment you step on the porch and walk in, you get a genuine sense of how much Roger and Chris enjoy running a very unique B&B. Each room is very different with plenty of personal touches. In addition, Roger and Chris were fully knowledgeable regarding all local activities and dining. Mark & Edwina, Wilton, NH
5 on January 14, 2013
My husband and I were very impressed by all that The Lion and the Rose had to offer. Roger and Chris were so warm and inviting! Made us feel like part of the family! The entire house was clean and nicely decorated. The room was outstanding! This place is a MUST go to for anyone who wants to get the most for their money! We are looking forward to returning! You will not regret staying here! The food was excellent! The cleanliness was top notch!!! The comfort was wonderful!!!! 5 stars across the board!!!!!!!!!!
4.6 on October 29, 2012
We were welcomed royally by the hosts. The house was beautiful and was decorated in keeping with its history. The Peacock Room was pleasant and adequate. The breakfast was unique and delicious. We were impressed with the way we and the other guests were introduced to each other so that the breakfast was like a family affair. We recommend The Lion and the Rose.
5 on October 15, 2012
New beautiful bathroom. Fabulous breakfast. When we asked for help for evening dining choices, the owner sat right down with us and went through different menus he had and his recommendations. We appreciated this personal touch in a relaxed atmosphere. The house was absolutely beautiful inside and out and very clean. We would come back if we are ever lucky to go this way again.
5 on September 25, 2012
Chris and Roger followed through on their Rose Garden promise. Our stay in the Rose Garden Room was wonderful. The bed was amazing; from the 7 ft high headboard to the amazing sheets! The bathroom has a corner spa tub. Chris's breakfast was amazing; and she even accommodated by gluten free diet! We enjoyed our bottle of champagne (thanks for the flutes Roger) while perusing their collection of interesting coffee table books. The owner/hosts are very friendly and gracious.

Host couldn't have been nicer. Very clean--A great value for the price

The Lion & The Rose is a wonderful experience for any traveler. The first thing is their unparalleled customer service. Chris & Roger are the warmest people you may ever meet. The B&B is a beautifully restored 1895 Victorian home with clean and well appointed rooms for all tastes. The people make this one of my favorite places to stay. Stay for a night or a week, you won't regret it.
4.2 on July 17, 2012
What an great experience! We had a very pleasant stay with Roger and Chris who are delightful and engaging hosts. They understand what it means to run a B&B and their guests are treated royally! The Key West room is whimsical and fun. We hope to return to stay in another of their charming themed rooms.
4.8 on July 12, 2012
July, 2012 We loved our stay! We are already talking about coming back again! Thank you for all your hard work to keep your hotel amazing to stay at! The hotel is very well maintained, and the room is veryclean. The breakfast was delicious and the service was awesome! We would definitely recommend it! Emil & N.
4.2 on July 03, 2012
Roger & Chris were excellent hosts. They offered advice on restaurants & answered all of our questions. The breakfast was way beyond our expectations! Delicious & so well presented. Our time needs were different from other guests and we were accommodated in this as well.
4.8 on July 02, 2012
Thanks again to Chris and Roger for the perfect night/ stay at your B&B. Everthing was perfect and wonderful. The rooms are prepard with so much love and charme! We felt very welcome and enjoyed the stay at the Lion and the Rose! We can recommend to everybody to book this B&B again!! Thanks again! Warm regards from Germany! Thomas and Wibke
5 on June 27, 2012
We returned for our 2nd stay this year and probably close to our 12th overall. I think we have run out of adjectives to describe how wonderful both the B&B and Chris and Roger are. Regardless of time of year, occasion or any thing else that is going on, a stay at The Lion and The Rose is always the pause that refreshes.
5 on June 21, 2012
My Girlfriend and I chose the Lion and the Rose for our White Mountains get away. The inn was beautifully decorated and has a warm cozy feeling to it. Our bed was very comfortable and the whole inn was well kept and clean. The Owners, Chris and Roger are very nice friendly people and the breakfast they made us was delicious. We would definitely recommend this inn!
5 on June 19, 2012
Chris and Roger are great! Comfortable rooms and the best breakfast you will have anywhere. You won't want to check out! Every nook and cranny has a story. A really nice place to stay.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Lion and the Rose. We were visiting for a wedding and found the inn to be very clean, the breakfast to be excellent and the owners very friendly. Would definiately stay there again.

We've recently stayed there and loved the condition of the old Victorian building and the hosts were just so friendly it was great. I highly recommend The Lion ans The Rose to anyone visiting the whhite Mountains of NH

Excellent B&B. Great breakfast and superb room atmosphere. Chris and Roger are splendid hosts, most helpful, and special people to get to know. We shall return. Sadie & Vince
5 on May 13, 2012
I was in Whitefield for a conference at another location but decided that I wanted to stay somewhere quieter and low key. This B&B will definitely win a return "non business" stay where I and some of my family can enjoy ALL that it has to offer and that is a lot. The inn keepers are friendly and service is their main concern. Whether traveling for business or pleasure; one night or more, you won't go wrong at the Lion and the Rose. I stayed in the White Lilac room which is at the back and I did not hear anything, very peaceful and a great nights sleep! Check them out, you won't be sorry. This survey would not let me skip the dining tab but I did not have the opportunity to have their breakfast but I rated it high because after seeing all of the other wonderful things about this inn, I cannot imagine that their breakfast would not follow suit!
4.4 on April 25, 2012
My 4th stay over the past four years. Engaging and friendly owners. Excellent and creative breakfasts. Comfortable, quiet and welcoming facility. Definitely will stay there again.
5 on March 12, 2012
We were in Whitefield for the weekend of the 25th to attend Audi Winter Driving School at the Team O'Neil Rally school. Last year we stayed at one of the big hotels in Whitefield and wanted a more relaxed experience this year. We were not disappointed. The rooms were beautifully appointed, the hosts gracious and very helpful and the breakfast wonderful. We will stay again next year.
4.0 on March 02, 2012
We just wanted to tell you that the stay was absolutely wonderful. Chris and Roger are great hosts and exceed above and beyond on servicing your needs. We stayed in the Egyptian Room and it was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed the jacuzzi and the bathroom was a double shower and sink and the king size bed was so comfortable that I slept well. We will be next time in the summer.
4.4 on February 15, 2012
Chris and Rodger made us feel very welcome. Our room was very comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. We'd recommend the Lion and the Rose to anyone.

Great Victorian house and decor. Comfortable beds. Great breakfast. Inn keepers were delightful.

The Lion and Rose is the perfect place for a stopover in the White Mountains. My partner and I stayed in their "egyptian room" and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Chris and Roger are great hosts, it's been almost a week since our stay and I still feel relaxed!

This Bed and Breakfast is lovely inside and kept by a very friendly couple. If you are looking to be right in a quaint mountain town center to take some interesting walks around the store fronts or ice skate in the frozen town square, it's perfect. If, however, you are looking for a more remote atmosphere, this may not be the place for you as the sights and sounds of being right in town cannot be avoided (street lights, passing cars, neighbors, etc...). Overall, they were lovely people and it was a great weekend in the White Mountains.

Chris and Roger are excellent hosts. It felt as though we were being welcomed into their home. The Lion's Den was a spacious, clean room with a fun theme. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful-- including stuffed french toast. Yum! Thank you so much for a wonderful visit!

My husband and I stayed in the "Lion's Den" room in this b&b. It was fantastic! Chris paid attention to every little detail to make our stay most enjoyable. She and her husband, Roger, made us feel so comfortable and at home. They were a delight to talk to and most helpful in every aspect. Chris's breakfasts were delicious! Their home is beautiful and a must see! Every room has its own theme. We can't wait to go back!

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this B&B given our last minute booking. The owners stayed up late to meet us, and then had breakfast ready early the next morning. The overall decor is charming but a bit dated. Breakfast was good, standard fare and kept us full for the rest of the day. The owners were very friendly and more than willing to help us find the perfect hike for the day.

The uniqueness of the rooms, the whimsy of the classic Victorian motif, and the pleasant and warm demeanor of the innkeepers made this rainy, soggy week-end a fantastic time.

This was the first B&B stay for Becky and me. Expected to compromise room and bathroom comfort for the experience. Turns out, both were every bit as good as the Hyatt Regency Boston we stayed at the night before. The host and hostess (Roger and Chris) were very attentive and interesting to talk to. Don't forget to retire to the parlor in the evening for a chat. The breakfast was very elegant and tasty, and the conversation with the two other couples was the highlight of the stay. Overall this far exceeded my expectations (and Becky had very high expectations!). The proximity to the White Mountains make this a perfect location. Stay here, and eat dinner at the Mountain View Grand Resort nearby for a perfect stay. Was going to Tucsany for 40th anniversary... not will probably come here. Thanks Roger & Chris. See you again. - Dennis

Wonderful location in the white mountains of NH close to lots of attractions. Chris and Roger were very warm and welcoming, and helpful with maps, directions and where to go for dinner. the breakfast was very good!

Our week-end was wonderful despite the rain. Chris and Roger were awesome. The braekfasts were great. The little extra of Chris always greeting us at the door when we got back from our daily trips was above and beyond. We would definitely go back and pray for sun.

We really enjoyed our stay in the Egyptian Room, very nice! Our hosts were very friendly and we had a wonderful visit over breakfast which was outstanding french toast with warm berry topping! We hope to go back again.

Hospitality, rooms, and food made you feel warm and welcome. They set the bar high for what we will look for in other b&b's. Couldn't have asked for better hosts.

A beautiful & interesting house. Very friendly hosts. The only problem for me were the steps, 15 stone steps to the front door & another 15 to the bedroom.

My wife and I were at the Lion and Rose to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. This was our first time in a bed and breakfast. Chris and Roger were incredibly nice. We enjoyed talking with them. They were very helpful when giving us tips and thoughts when we discussed what we were going to do each day. The breakfasts were very good. The eggs were delicious and the stuffed french toast was incredible. My wife has some dietary restrictions and they were very accommodating. They also were nice enough to give me a cup of coffee at 6:45am when I snuck out early to go looking for Moose to photograph (didn't see any, might be an excuse to go up again). They rooms were very nicely done. We stayed in the Egyptians room and feel like pharaohs. (but pharaohs with a jacuzzi tub and gas fireplace) I would definitely stay there again if I was in the area. Oh, and it was cheaper to stay here that at some of the chain hotels.

The Lion and the Rose is a great option for folks looking for a unique and charming B&B experience near Mount Washington. We had an excellent trip!
4.8 on August 31, 2011
Even tho I did not eat there, I know the service was there.. (had to get to the airport very early) I truly enjoyed the room - the Key West and the wonderful island charm it has. A year ago I stayed in the White Lilac room also fantastic. If you like magic, comfort and beautiful themes, this is the place! It's got beauty to notice in every corner and the owners are fantastic. Thank you.

Chris and Roger were the most wonderful Host and Hostess!!! The room was lovely with all the amenities that you could need, mini fridge, towels, soaps, washer and dryer in the bathroom if needed. The room clean and fresh and decorated with beautiful antique accents. Chris is an amazing cook! Breakfast was always delicious with an absolutly beautiful presentation. Chris and Roger were extremely helpful at pointing out high points of visiting the area along with directions to special locations. I would definately stay there again!!!

Chris and Roger are excellent hosts. They helped us to plan a great getaway. Very comfortable room, quiet atmosphere The egyptian room met all of our expectations
5 on August 04, 2011
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and had always been told that it was a wonderful place to stay, but when we arrived, we found that it far exceeded our expectations! Chris and Roger took us in with their warm, caring way and treated us like family! We arrived as strangers and left with new family members. Breakfasts were beyond amazing! All homemade and filling! When you eat here, eat early...it will last you until dinner time! Our room was always exceptionally clean and inviting, especially with the hot tub and shower for two! :) We are looking forward to staying here again, hopefully in the winter so we can use the fireplace! The Egyptian room is highly recommended! Sincerely, Jenifer and Bill from Southern, NH

After getting many personal recommendations to the Lion and the Rose from family and friends, as well as reading many five star reviews, I was really excited for our getaway! I read all about the wonderful cookies we would be having, wine and hors d'ouvres, and a phenomenal breakfast (hey, I like to eat! :) ) but unfortunately, we didn't get the first two and the breakfast was good, but not out of this world like I expected. I'm not sure what happened, but it was a little disappointing :) The room was nice, and clean, and Chris and Roger were very, very friendly, which was awesome. :) Hopefully next time we will have a great experience like we were expecting this time!
I apologize,the afternoon tea & cookies and glass of wine with cheese & crackers are always offered but some guests choose not to have them.We make it all to order so there is no waste.I'm sorry that you were disappointed,we will certainly make it up to you the next time you stay with us!

My partner, Paul and I, stayed at The Lion and the Rose and loved it. Chris and Roger make you feel very welcome. They are gay friendly so if you want a place to go with you partner, I recommend The Lion and The Rose. Breakfast was great, especially the stuffed French Toast and they were very helpful with travel advice and recommendations. It's a very cosy and romantic place so I look forward to returning for a get-away now and again.
5 on July 05, 2011
The innkeepers, Chris and Roger, are very friendly and helpful. A clean bed and a flourishing breakfast are guaranteed in this well-decorated property.

My girlfriend and I decided to go on a spur of the moment weekend getaway, and I found this B&B very near an area I'm familiar with in the White Mountains. We decided to "splurge" on the most expensive room, The Egypt Room. This is the only room with its own private deck, as well as a jacuzzi and a shower for two. Note that it actually wasn't that much more expensive, but not all rooms have a jacuzzi, and no other room has a deck! The decor in the room was amazing. You can tell the owners had a blast collecting the items necessary to decorate it in the requisite theme. This was the case with all the rooms, as we were invited to take a look at all of them, as we were the first couple to arrive that weekend. Now, the real value, and what made us decide on this B&B, was how much was offered over and above the room. Not only did we get breakfast in the morning, but tea and cookies in the afternoon, and wine and cheese and crackers at night! The owners are very sweet people. Very eager to chat, but also understanding of your need for privacy. It's a delicate balance, and I applaud them for having a good sense of people. Of course there's nothing worse than staying at a B&B and having the owners constantly hovering. The owners live and sleep at an adjacent house, and with a front door key we were free to come and go as we pleased. Never once felt crowded. Also, the cable included BBC America, so we could watch Doctor Who! If I could find anything to complain about, it's that the B&B is too close to town. The night sky is amazing in this part of the state, but a few fewer street lights and it would have been breathtaking. Further away from town, up in the hills, the view of the surrounding mountains and forests would have been really something, too. The Lion and The Rose is one of the most pleasant vacations I can recall. Please check it out if you're planning a getaway in the area of the White Mountains!

The Lion and the Rose B&B has provided the exemplary comfort, caring, and friendliness that I have come to expect consistently over my several visits there. I am never disappointed. I’m greeted by warm from the oven cookies and the welcoming smiles from owners Chris and Roger Croteau. I’m always charmed with the restored Victorian home. Escorted to a beautifully decorated themed room with private bath, I pause to feel the comfort of a large bed and then off for a relaxing time in the spa tub. All are sure to feel the weight of the world slip away as I did. Breakfast at the beautiful grand dining table is memorable with fine food and service. The Lion and the Rose has never failed to impress me whether I’m visiting with a group, a single business trip, or a birthday surprise to enjoy a play at the nearby Weathervane Theatre. A great time with exceptional value, I’ve found a home away from home.
5 on April 15, 2011
Roger and Chris were excellent hosts, we felt welcome the minute we walked in. Their b&b was fantastic, the rooms were great, we really enjoyed the Jacuzzi and the b&b is located at a great location in the White mountains!
5 on April 09, 2011
The Lion and the Rose is a wonderful place to stay. From the minute you walk in the door (greeted with fresh baked cookies and a drink), to the Jacuzzi Room, and the warm, home-like environment created by the inn's owners, this inn is a simply wonderful place to stay. We have stayed there twice, and are looking for a reason to go back a third time. The rooms have always been clean, and the beds are VERY comfortable. The living room area is welcoming and it a great place to sit and read, or to have a conversations with new people. While they do not serve dinner, they have a perfect handle on which restaurants to recommend. They do serve breakfast, however, and it blew us away both times. They offer multiple seatings, and the food is all cooked in house, and is served by the innkeepers with precision. the food itself was AMAZING! Stuffed french toast cooked perfectly, fresh coffee and orange juice, sausages, fruit, and muffins...all to die for. The Lion and the Rose is worth the trip. Roger and Chris are masters of the trade.

Excellent place to stay. Tastefully done themed rooms. Roger & Chris are awesome innkeepers. Breakfast is a delight to awake to. Highly recommend.

Our stay at the Lion and the Rose B&B was fabulous! We really needed a relaxing weekend and we got it. Roger and Chris were very friendly and the nicest people. We are planning on going back during the summer to enjoy their garden and the beautiful mountains.
4.4 on March 08, 2011
This was the first bed and breakfast my girlfriend and I have been to. According to her "It was everything I could have asked for and more". We will definitely be back to more Bed and Breakfasts and especially this one. The food, service and cleanliness of the rooms was outstanding. The lion and the Rose is definitely a must visit.
4.6 on February 27, 2011
The Lion and The Rose is nestled in the small, charming community of Whitefield, NH. Location was perfect for good food (Grandma's Kitchen and the Mountain View Grand Hotel are a MUST) and even better skiing (Bretton Woods Ski Resort). We stayed in the Lion's Den room- very spacious and extremely clean with a two person jacuzzi tub. The room aside, to say the innkeepers were hospitable would be an understatement. We were instantly greeted with warm smiles, freshly baked chocolate chip cookes, and a lovely glass of wine. We started each morning with a large, homemade breakfast that rivaled my mother's home cooking (sorry mom). All in all, the location was perfect, house was beautiful, and food was delicious. The icing on the cake would have to be the innkeepers- how lovely it was to feel so at home while away on vacation.
5 on February 22, 2011
My husband and I stayed here over the weekend and I could not have been more pleased. After a day on the slopes at Bretton Woods, it was a pleasure to come into this very well run B&B. Both Chris and Roger greeted us and showed us to our room which included a charming soaking clawfoot tub. The food was amazing in the morning and they have a terrific parlor for relaxing in the evening. I will definitely be back and will recommend it warmly!
5 on February 16, 2011
We had a great time during our stay at the Lion and the Rose. Chris and Roger were wonderful - very friendly and personable - even greeted us with fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies. After getting settled into the Rose Garden Room, which was absolutely beautiful, we headed downstairs for some lively conversation with Chris and Roger. They had excellent dinner recommendations for us. The room was clean and quiet and we slept great in the big, comfy bed. The breakfast the next morning was wonderful. Overall, we had a great time and can't wait to go back for another visit! We had gone away for a romantic weekend, and the Lion and the Rose delivered!
5 on January 03, 2011
This place was ADORABLE! Chris and Roger (the owners) were so friendly and hospitable! My boyfriend and I stayed here during Christmas vacation and it was well worth it! We stayed for three nights! Chris makes an AMAZING breakfast every morning! I especially loved the stuffed french toast! The room was very cute! Each room has a different theme and we stayed in the Far East room! Everything was very clean and cozy, the bed was VERY comfortable! The downstairs den area had a great wood pellet stove which kept the whole house nice and warm! The hot tub was very relaxing and helped after a full day of skiing! This place was awesome and we hope to return soon and maybe we'll even share this place with our good friends!! It's definitely a couples or adult B&B, not recommended for families!

This was our 2nd time staying with Roger & Chris, the room was comfrotable and wonderfully appointed. The jacuzzi was relaxing and the food was sublime.

The Lion and the Rose B & B was an online find when we learned we were coming to the area for a wedding in Ma. What a find! When we first drove up, we had to laugh at the unique lamp pole outside the office door. Inside, the B & B was inviting and beautifully decorated. We had opted for the White Lilac room, as we did not plan on spending a lot of time in the room. The room was cozy and we slept soundly. We spent two afternoons visiting over wine, got great help in planning our day in the area, and got our two mornings off to a great start with delicious homemade breakfasts! Chris and Roger make every effort to make you feel welcome. We appreciated the introductions to the other residents each day; what fun to find out where the other guests had traveled from! The most limiting thing about staying in Whitefield is the few choices for dinner. We had a bad experience the first night at the Inn up the road. We were going to chose another place the second night, but most of the other restaurants within ten miles were closed Monday night. Chris called the Inn and let them know about what had happened to us and the other two couples she had referred. Our dining experience the second night was MUCH better. Too bad NH is so far from SC or we would chose to come again and be "house guests" with Chris and Roger.
3.8 on October 10, 2010
This inn is very well kept, however, our room was next to the road and quite noisy. The innkeepers and friendly, helpful and did their best to make us comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding and sumptuous.

It is a lovely place to stay, Roger and Chris are charming. The breakfast food was excellent, the french toast was the best that I ever had.

Great find. I always stay in Linlcoln and picked the Lion & The Rose as a last minute change. I am so delighted I did. Chris & Roger are most hospitable. The B&B is better than most I have stayed in. It is clean, quiet, comfortable and inviting. looking forward to another visit.
5 on August 22, 2010
The Lion and the Rose was a great place to stay while we were on vacation. Chris & Roger made us feel at home from the time we entered. The food was scrumptious and the rooms were beautifully decorated and it was obvious that this place was completed with love. We recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay.

Chris and Roger took good care of us this Memorial Day weekend. They provided great conversation and fed us delicious breakfasts.
4.8 on March 10, 2010
The title says it all. Roger & Chris are great people who truly treat their guests like family. Their location is incredibly close to many different attractions, and 'beautiful home' doesn't do the house enough justice. I just don't have the words to describe it. We will definitely stay here again when visiting this area.
4.6 on February 05, 2010
We had a wonderful stay at the Inn. The hosts were wonderful and friendly. It felt like our home away from home.

We have stayed at The Lion and the Rose 8 times (our 9th trip is coming soon) and are continually impressed. Chris & Roger are genuinely friendly and helpful (for example, accommodating late check-in and early breakfast requests), but never over-bearing. Each room is unique, well-appointed, and immaculate - no drab/worn decor or clutter here. My favorite rooms are the Egyptian, Lion's Den, and Far East. The breakfasts are scrumptious and plentiful (love the stuffed french toast!). This is truly an exceptional place, yet prices are reasonable - they could easily charge 50% more. The only problem is that it really spoils you - I have yet to find another place that compares!
4.4 on October 01, 2009
Great stay with 2 happy innkeepers. Chris & Roger were so helpful in planning our days & our dinners. The Inn was decorated with 100 yr old mementos. Delicious breakfasts!

I needed place north of the White Mountains, and this one seemed to call to me the most. I was not disappointed. Roger and Chris are wonderful hosts, and their house is awesome. Each themed room has a unique feel and the common areas are wonderfully comfortable. Chris' breakfast is outstanding in every way, and what a lovely presentation to boot. I would go back in a heartbeat when in this part of the country.

We stayed in the Egyptian Room and it was worth the few additional dollars! The hot tub and 2 person shower was relaxing, the bed comfortable, the hosts friendly, and breakfast delicious.

We just had our 6th (I think) stay at The Lion and The Rose, and it will not be our last. The innkeepers, the rooms, the food, the ambiance...we cannot say enough about what a wonderful place this is and what wonderful people they are. It is so worth the trip.

Our stay at the Lion & Rose was absolutely perfect. Our late arrival was not a problem & the house was amazing and so was the breakfast. I haven't had such a nice breakfast in a very long time. The house was amazing and each room has a unique personality with everything you could want in it. They were very hospitable and I would recommend this B&B to anyone going to NH for a couple of days!
