We just returned from our first stay at Lazy L. We are already planning our next visit. Absolutely beautiful grounds and amenities. When they say dog friendly they mean dog friendly! The staff could not be more personable or helpful. Great location and we loved the spa!

Dog/People Friendly B&B

The Lazy L is an outstanding destination. The surrounds are peaceful and beautiful. The facilities are without flaws and dogs are treated as special guests. Vacation villages and the shore are nearby. This is my favorite place to relax in the U.S.

CHEW's Summer Vacation

4.4 on June 25, 2011

Hi! My name is CHEW & I am a rescued chow mix. I just got back from my 6th vacation in a row at the “Lazy L” in Lewes, DE. I had a great time in the spacious dog run, smelling flowers & meeting other dogs. After playing in the run, my family & I rested by the pool. I laid in the shade under the cabana taking in the sites & smells. After the pool we went to our room, the “Lighthouse” room overlooking Willow Creek. The room was clean, cool & spacious with a refrigerator, flat screen HDTV & coffee maker. Debbie & Joanne give me treats too! I hope my mom brings me again next year coz i love it here!!!! I always have a WOOFIN Good Time : ) : ) : )

A Wonderfully Welcoming Dog Friendly B&B !!

4.4 on June 18, 2011

My husband and I and our two Pekingese spent a relaxing weekend at the Lazy L in mid-June. From the time you arrive and are handed a sheet with information on local dog-friendly beaches and restaurants, to being shown around the very dog friendly property, you will feel right at home. The rooms are comfortable, and they even supply a sheet to place over the bedspread for the dogs that sleep with Mom & Dad. Dogs are also welcome to join everyone for breakfast on the sun porch. My husband has to have a gluten free diet and they even made special muffins and pancakes just for him. It is a 6 mile drive over to downtown Rehboth, but depending on the time of day, it isn't bad. We have stayed in other supposed " Dog Friendly " places, but they really couldn't compare to the Lazy L. The fact that it is only a one-time charge for each dog ($20), not by the night, is a real bonus also! We were not the only ones there to have more than 1 dog. We certaintly enjoyed our stay and would recommend a stay there for all people that enjoy traveling with their dogs.

Excellent, excellent service will keep us coming back

These folks really know how to run a B&B. They were so gracious, yet very down-to-earth. We stayed in the cottage, and it was quiet and comfortable, and breakfasts were delicious.

Weekend at Lazy L

4.0 on October 20, 2010

Loved the heated pool and hot tub. The other guests were friendly, and the dog run was wonderful. Sunrise over the creek was spectacular. We look forward to a return trip.

The Lazy L

4.8 on August 05, 2010

All I can say is that the Lazy L was the best B&B we've ever stayed at. The owners and staff are wonderful!

Great B&B that takes dogs!

3.8 on June 18, 2010

I took my two small dogs with me to the Lazy L and stayed 3 nights. They have a large fenced in dog run area - all of the grounds are nicely planted. Many different spots on their property to hang out, plus a small swimming pool. Staff are very helpful and friendly, the breakfast is great. You can leave your dog in your room unattended for up to 3 hours, unless s/he makes a lot of noise - they will call your cell phone. Lewes has many restaurants with patios that let you bring your dogs to dinner as well. I highly recommend it and will return next summer.

Lazy April days...

3.8 on February 12, 2010

Great opportunity to travel with our dogs. The rooms were well appointed and so clean. It was hard to believe that it was actually a dog friendly B&B. I was amazed at how clean it was. The gardens were coming along nicely. We were glad that we took the cabin room, off-site, as it would have been quite noisy in the house with all the rooms full of pets...who could be a bit unrully. Our dogs were quite comfortable in the cabin; and enjoyed the large run area. Our favorite part of our stay included kayaking directly from the B&B on Willow Creek-a little costly; but how convenient. We were hoping to use the hot-tub; but it was not available. The free ice-cream also was not available. There is a beautiful outdoor fireplace, over-looking the creek, which would have been perfect for our late-April trip, but we just were not sure if we were allowed to use it or not. Otherwise, we had a really, really good time; and would definitely return.

Wonderful dog-friendly accommodations!

4.4 on January 11, 2010

My husband and I spent two nights at the Lazy L in August 2009, along with our 10-year-old Lab and our 3-year-old hound mix. What a great find! We stayed at the cottage on the dog run and thoroughly enjoyed it. The dog run is huge, with a screened gazebo and plenty of chairs for humans. The cottage itself has its own fence, so you can let your dogs out the front door without immediately letting them into the run (this also keeps other dogs from coming right up to your door). It's a small efficiency cottage with room for one large dog crate. Everything was immaculate -- a rarity in dog-friendly accomodations -- and the dog sheet to cover the bed was a nice touch. Innkeepers were very friendly and knowledgeable. Their list of dog-friendly restaurants helped us find some great places. Breakfast was out of this world -- 2 courses -- and could be tailored to your dietary needs with advance notice. The grounds are spacious and allow you to have some privacy despite the number of people staying there -- there is always a quiet water view to be found. The property is quite secluded, but still a short drive to the beaches and into town. Great escape if you are looking for R&R nearby a quaint seaside town.

Dogs Welcomed with Open Paws!

A resort for both humans and their pet friends. Clean, comfortable, just the right mix of hospitality and privacy. Great people and unbelieveable setting.

Dog Paradise!

5 on January 04, 2010

We recently returned from a winter weekend getaway trip to the Lazy L with 3 of our 5 retrievers (they have a 3 dog limit). We all had a very enjoyable time. We stayed in the very quiet, superbly clean, Flamingo room on the first level. It has a small, but adequate bathroom with a shower and a super comfy bed!!! There was also a fridge and a small sitting area in the room. Doggy linens (sheets/towels) are provided to help keep the furnishings clean and in good condition. We particularly enjoyed the large living area off of our room (shared with the room across from us) and were happy to have a doggy neighbor to play with. There was also an exercise area on our level, as well as a pool table, games, movies, kitchenette with dishes, and fireplaces. We didn't really need to bring anything but our clothes and personal items. They even had dog bowls! The entrance is easily accessible for anyone who has difficulty with stairs as the landscaping provides for easy access to a patio which leads to the water, yard, pool, hot tub, parking area and dog run. Despite being on the first floor, we still had a nice view of the water. I enjoyed walking the dogs around the property while my hubby stretched out on the couch and watched some tv. The dogs loved the dog run and all the treats at breakfast. It was so nice to be able to bring them with us everywhere we the B & B and away. Besides a few stores in the town of Lewes, we were able to keep them with us the entire time, even for a meal at Cafe Azafran. There isn't enough room to write all that I want to say, but we highly recommend the Lazy L and hope to return in the future.

B&B paradise

5 on November 06, 2009

The most beautiful creek-marsh scene ever. Cery dog friendly. Superb breakfasts. Fine dwelling -- well-appointed. Welcoming owners. Excellent massages available. Lewes & Rehoboth Beach quite close. Secluded, peaceful property. Pool & hot tub.

Going to the dogs has never been such fun!

5 on November 04, 2009

We knew as soon as we pulled in the curcular drive that we were in for a treat -- we drove through a lavishly planted lane. We were greeted and treated -- Sadie our rottweiler got kisses and treats. There is a landscaped secure dog run. Food & service excellent.

Charming B&B

4.2 on September 02, 2009

The Lazy L is a perfect getaway for people that don't want to leave their pets at home. Everyone was very friendly and made you and your pet feel comfortable. With the pool, hot tub, pool table and out door seating areas you didn't need (or want) to leave the Resort. We particularly enjoyed the free ice cream!

Dog Days of Summer

The innkeepers are friendly and welcoming to humans and canines alike. breakfast includes 2 courses and fills your belly. The dogs love the acre fenced play yard. Great stay despite the heat!

Great Vacation for you and your dog

4.0 on August 25, 2009

The people who worked at the Lazy L were very friendly and attentive. As soon as you arrive, they give you a tour of the house and a list of activities and restaurants in the area. The rooms were very nice, clean and larger than most B&Bs we stayed at. Dogs have full run of the house, which was nice because there are a couple of common areas that you can watch TV or play games if you didn't want to sit in your room. They also allowed you to keep your dog in your room while you were out as long as they didn't bother the other guests. The breakfasts were very good. They usually started with juice, fresh fruit and freshly baked muffins that were outstanding. Then you would get a hot pancakes, waffles or eggs. In fact, I could never finish everything they served us. Outside they had a large fenced-in dog run, which was one of the selling points that attracted me to this place. The pool area was nice, it had lounge chairs, umbrellas, a stereo and a BBQ. It was also fenced in, so you could bring your dog into the area (but they are not allowed in the pool itself). There were plenty of local parks and beaches that could take your dog. They also have dog friendly towns and restaurants. The only negative thing I could say about this location is the biting flies. I'm not sure if it was the time of year or not, but the flies were very annoying so I would recommend bringing bug spray. Also, do not use MapQuest for directions!


5 on July 17, 2009

Everything was perfect--for our pup and us! Lovely room with a view of great property. All the amenities.

Dog friendly paradise

5 on June 19, 2009

A well kept and comfortable resort type B&B when dogs are celebrated and dog owners are comfortable. The meandering tidal creek can be seen from the pool and from some of the rooms. Full breakfasts are a real treat! Very private location.

Fantastic, dog-friendly getaway!

4.6 on June 16, 2009

Staff was super-friendly and accommodating, making us and our pugs feel right at home! Upon check-in, they provided a list of dog-friendly beaches, restaurants, shops, etc., in the area... My one suggestion would be that, until they update the restaurant list, you be sure to call and check whether a place is open. At least one phone number had been disconnected, and a couple places were dinner-only (when we were looking for lunch). All-in-all, though, a fabulous weekend!

Playful place to pals and pets

4.0 on June 08, 2009

A casual rural retreat for you and your soul mate (be it kindred spirit of K-9), set amidst nature on a tranquil riverbank- secluded, yet less than 10 miles from the Atlantic coast. Walk about lovely gardens, share the joyous mood and fun with other engaging guests, or just chill out and escape the ordinary in this happy and harmonious hideaway!

Dog owners' paradise

The Lazy L is super-dog-friendly and accommodating for all two and four legged guests. Great resort, super friendly, awesome location. Excellent stay!

Family fun with dogs

Extraordinary B&B

Outstanding B&B. Truly pet friendly. Incredible breakfasts and staff are always willing to go the extra mile. Magnificent landscaping and truly breath-taking views. Great size rooms with lots of amenities.

Wonderful Retreat

4.4 on April 28, 2009

I just returned from 2 days at the Lazy L. It's a wonderful place to get away, and since they are extremely pet friendly, you can bring along Fido too. The area is quiet and perfect for relaxing, but yet your within minutes of beaches, restaurants and shopping. My golden had a wonderful time - receiving such a welcome and playing in the dog run. They will give you info on other places in the area where Fido is welcome. This place is very clean for being so pet friendly, and the decor is a really nice beach theme. There are many amenities in-house if you don't want to go out. I got a flat tire one evening, and they were quick to lend a helping hand with that. I would recommend this place to anyone, especially if they have a dog, and I'm going to check my calendar now to see when I can go back!

Dog friendly

The Lazy L is dog friendly as well as people friendly! Very clean, not a dog hair in sight!! Delicious breakfasts and very friendly and helpful hosts. Loved every minute and we would definitely go back!

Couldn't get any better!

5 on March 31, 2009

We found Lazy L on the internet and decided to book a reservation. My husband, I and our dog Chablis arrived to be greeted by Joanne and Debbie, the Innkeepers. The rooms were spotless, the breakfast was wonderful and we were able to bring Chablis with us for breakfast if we wanted. I would definetly recommend staying at the Inn. We will surely come back again. Thank you Joanne and Debbie for making our stay memorable!

Beautiful setting by the creek

Lazy L is for people-and dogs- of every activity lovers

3.4 on December 01, 2008

Being lazy is an option, but why would you want to when you have a hot tub, swimming pool, a pool table, dogs a-plenty on site, and great shopping, dinning, beaches, sunrises, and sunsets nearby!

A god time had by all

5 on November 25, 2008

My wife and I spent five wonderful days at the Lazy L, the staff was very friendly and effecient, the rooms very comfortable and well appointed. The dogs had a great time in the play area and interacting with the other guests and their dogs. Definitely going back next year, economy permitting

One fantastic place for dogs and their owners

Dogs are not only welcome here, they are treated well, invited to accompany people everywhere on the property and taken into consideration with all aspects of the inn.

Linus's Great Adventure

4.0 on November 05, 2008

This was Linus's (our beagle) first vacation, because I was care giver for my mother and unable to leave the house. She past away in Aug. We decided to get away, taking Linus with us. He really enjoyed the B&B and the other dogs he met, plus the ocean. The B&B gave us names of pet-friendly places. It was a great vacation.

Our great getaway

5 on October 29, 2008

We fell in love with Lazy L. We enjoyed our entire time at Lazy L. Our dogs Jesse and Mitzi were happy and loved the out doors with us. Our room was lovely and the breakfasts were so delicious!

fun for all

Lazy L is great fun for two-legged and four-legged guests! the dog run, great setting, and very hospitable hosts make this place a wonderful getaway. we've been back twice and will return again...

This B&B is more than that. It is a house where we felt welcomed & at home. The view from the porch/garden is amazing & that of our "blue room" breathtaking. It was so quiet & peaceful. Our hosts so nice.

Lazy L at Willow Creek

5 on October 13, 2008

My husband and I have not been on vacation for 16 yrs due to having 2 dogs. Lazy L is pet friendly. There were the most thoughtful place. The dogs were welcomed just as much as us. We took business cards to our vests to help other people.

Great Place

5 on September 21, 2008

Lazy L is a nice place. I saw the review in the Baltimore Sun. My sister was looking for a B & B to take her Lab,great place to stay.

Our favorite getaway

5 on August 20, 2008

We made our first trip to the Lazy L on the recommendation of the Washington Post. We were seeking a vacation spot just a short drive from Washington where my husband could unwind after the bar exam, and also reconnect with our beloved Lab who'd he missed spending time with while in school and studying. We've been back three years in a row now. The Inn is lovely and well-kept, the rooms very comfortable and Joanne and Debbie are so sweet and knowledgeable about the area that you'll immediately feel like a local. Being dog friendly, the Lazy L tends to attract dog people, a warm, happy bunch. Its always a pleasure to be in the company of your fellow guests over breakfast (which are so large, filling and delicious that you may not be hungry again until dinner).

First Timer.

4.8 on August 17, 2008

Excellent facilities and very pet friendly. Quiet location but close to everything. Our First B&B experience. Will return for more.

Great Getaway With Your Dog!

5 on July 31, 2008

We have a puppy (our first dog) and wanted a little vacation where we could bring "Dolly," a Bichon Frise. The whole experience at the Lazy L was wonderful! My husband and I traveled together, along with my parents, and stayed for 2 nights. We took the Cape May Ferry. The grounds of the Lazy L are lovely – very well kept; the dog run (really a dog park) is huge; the innkeepers very friendly and welcoming; the rooms clean and well-appointed; the house’s many common areas include a 3rd floor lounge with a panoramic view of the property to include the creek and gardens. Interacting with the other guests and dogs was a highlight of the visit. The breakfasts are delicious also. I highly recommend the Lazy L for a fun getaway with your dog. The area beaches are really nice too, and there are several restaurants that are dog-friendly. I can imagine visiting the Lazy L in any season for a wonderful getaway vacation. We will definitely come back to visit the Lazy L with our dog, Dolly.

Fun With Pups!

5 on July 14, 2008

Great place to stay if you are traveling with your dog!

Two day getaway proves to be perfect

5 on July 11, 2008

We have a 10 month old Chocolate Labrador Retriever who had never seen the ocean and we wanted him to experience it this summer. Our dog trainer suggested the Lazy L at Willow Creek and what a pleasant surprise it was! A perfect place to relax after a long day at the beach. All the "creature" comforts were there, from shampoo and conditioner for our pal Leo to all natural breakfast treats. The humans especially enjoyed the free ice cream.

An outstanding property!

Nothing Lazy but me, at The Lazy L

4.0 on June 03, 2008

My Fiance and I had a wonderful, relaxing, dogcentric visit at The Lazy L. The grounds are lovely and well kept-for you AND your dog, the staff helpful yet not hovering, and best of all, even though our Boston Terrier had to stay home, we had plenty of fabulous, well behaved, dog visitors to the Inn to interact with. Quite frankly, that made the stay so much more memorable-Kentucky the Beagle, and Willis the Cavalier were sooooo cute! A newly engaged couple had two of the most engaging mixed-breed dogs(can't remember their names)and the Inn keepers even helped the young man set up the proposal scene at the beach in Lewes with the dogs dressed as a Bride and Groom. Now that I would have liked to have seen. This Inn is also very tidy, and the beds were very comfortable. The pool area was very nice, as were the lounge chairs by the creek option. If you have dogs or even if you don't, I would stay here. Woof!

Peaceful, quiet, nice staff, lovely grounds

Very Pet Friendly

5 on April 26, 2008

The Lazy L was as pet-friendly as they advertise. It made it easy to interact with other guests because everyone had the common interest of their pet. Debbie was able to give information on the various places where dogs were welcome, even for dinner.


5 on July 23, 2007

I stayed here for a week with my son, his friend, and my young Golden Retriever. I felt very welcome and relaxed with having my rambunctious puppy (well, 18 months old) in the room. I never thought I would have been so at ease in such a setting but I did. The breakfast was a highlight of the day for me and my son. The dog run was so large it is bigger than my own backyard; it is also clean, well-maintained and scattered with some dog toys as well. My dog behaved surprisingly well, with a few exceptions when she barked upon hearing dogs in the neighboring rooms. There were ample opportunities for my son and his friend to entertain themselves, including the pool, the communal TV, which they hooked video games up to, and a pool table. The other guests were all very nice and friendly. The staff and the two innkeepers, Debbie & Joanne, were very friendly and helpful and welcoming. I would stay at the Lazy L again and again, and so it seems would their other guests, as there were at least three other couples who have stayed before.
