Each detail of The Red Lion Inn is rich with tradition. Since the late 18th Century, this property has been a beacon of Berkshires-style hospitality -- and it has the bona fides to boot. (Five Presidents have stayed here, and it was immortalized in a Norman Rockwell Christmas print.) In the modern era, The Red Lion Inn is a quaint refuge that offers modern comfort and convenience, set against a backdrop rich with lovely antique touches.
A welcoming bowl of delicious gum drops on the check-in desk proves that this place has the deepest commitment to hospitality and homeyness. Before you make your way to your room, stop to admire the old-fashioned telephone rooms, a collection of vintage pencils and the one-of-a-kind birdcage elevator. Those are just a few of the memorable touches that you surely won’t find at a chain hotel. Don’t worry -- you’ll find wi-fi and other modern conveniences here, too.
Endless extraordinary details, in an environment that’s bound to inspire
Choose the lodging style that best suits your needs. From the iconic Main Inn, to the country-style Maple Glen, to the one-of-a-kind houses at The Village, to the firehouse-turned-guesthouse -- each option exudes charm and memorability, but in distinctly different ways. While the decor may help you appreciate the past, the amenities are thoroughly modern. Take advantage of the year-round, heated outdoor pool and hot tub, plus a fitness room and yoga classes. If it’s relaxation you’re after -- try the 3rd floor library, or the legendary front porch.
Choices abound: There are no fewer than four different options for on-site dining. The main dining room offers a candlelit experience, complete with crystal chandeliers, antique china and Colonial pewter. Widow Bingham’s tavern is rustic and family-friendly. During the summer months, The Courtyard is the perfect backdrop for casual cocktails under sunny skies (or a canopy of stars). The Lion’s Den pub, downstairs from the cellar, offers live music and delicious drinks seven nights a week. There’s never a cover charge -- meaning there’s never a reason not to check this spot out.
Guest rooms are spacious and inviting, with plenty of drawer space, comfortable beds and bright bathrooms. A nightly turndown service adds to the charm. The Red Lion Inn is the perfect place for meetings, weddings and other events -- they’ve had over two centuries to refine their approach to hospitality, after all. The unique details throughout the entire property will send your imagination racing. Meanwhile, the full suite of A/V gear, the high-speed wi-fi and the eight unique meeting spaces ensure that your gathering will be as productive as it is memorable.
