About The Innkeepers

Ali Pitcher and Tommy Dott Innkeeper Photo

Ali Pitcher and Tommy Dott

Innkeepers Ali Pitcher and Tommy Dott have been in the hospitality business close to their entire lives, collectively from Hawaii to Nantucket. Prior to purchasing the Lamb and Lion Inn in 1999, they owned & operated a AAA 4-Diamond rated inn & restaurant in New York’s historic Hudson Valley.​

With passion, hard work, and a dash of insanity, the inn became the smallest property ever to be inducted into the prestigious Relais and Chateaux organization where Ali and Tom housed and hosted familiar names like Newman, Jagger, Streep, Bacon, Travolta and Streisand. They hosted one of the late great Isaac Stern’s weddings, who, when asked by a guest to play his violin during the reception, retorted “Madam, you’re not rich enough, and I’m not yet drunk enough!”​ Now living a slightly more "laid back" life your hosts are still loving live and enjoying rocking their guest's world.
