  • Great stay on road trip for single female traveller

    by pamelapancakes on 2017-12-09 05:22 pm

    If you like historic inns, don't mind a little potpourri/fireplace smell throughout, aren't afraid of creaky hallways, adore antiques, and love quaint small towns, this is your place. I mention the odor because it's something other reviewers remarked upon, with varying degrees of tolerance. It was noticeable to me, but speaking as someone who can be quite sensitive to smells, it was not bothersome. Spent one night here with advance reservation in late November; not many visitors during this off-season week so I felt like I had the entire floor to myself. I stayed in a single room on 4th floor overlooking main street, with shared bathroom right across the hallway. I very much appreciated the proximity of the bathroom as a single female traveler. Even though I'm pretty sure I was the only person up there using it, I still was glad to have it so close to my room. Enjoyed an expensive but lovely dinner in the restaurant with friendly staff. I felt safe and welcomed throughout, and enjoyed a quiet, good night's sleep. Breakfast was included the next morning, and portions were so generous I had to leave much behind! Free parking was behind the building in an adequately lit lot. I have to admit that walking in at night through the unfamiliar lot upon arriving was the only thing that gave me pause, since it was a bit dark and the buildings ramble all over. Wished for a little more light, TBH. Room was spotless, bed comfortable, included sink, ample closet and bureau space. Really loved staying here and will definitely come back!

  • Christmas blessings

    The Red Lion Inn is a great way to celebrate the Christmas spirit! The waitstaff, front desk . housekeeping staff.and management are efficient and friendly in a hustling bustling atmosphere... Top notch service. If someone can't find their Christmas here I feel sad for them.

  • Perfect New England country hotel!

    We just got back from a two night stay at The Red Lion Inn, having first spent one night at a far more expensive mansion hotel we had booked and were very underwhelmed by (to go unnamed - they kindly let us out of the rest of our commitment). The Red Lion was such a delightful surprise! We stayed in the newer Maple Glenn house building which still had plenty of old-time feel with modern amenities like heated bathroom floors, coffeemaker, fridge, excellent heating, and a very comfy bed and good linens. Everywhere you wanted a lamp or shelf to be, there was one (I find this is rare in hotels). We couldn't have been more comfortable. Dining room and room service meals were all excellent. Staff were energetic and nice. Truly a perfect experience.

    Thank you very much for your kind words. Our Maple Glenn guest house is a favorite among our guests as it blends classic antiques with quirky d?cor (just take a peak at our collection of TV lamps displayed on our staircase) and modern amenities seamlessly. When the weather co-operates, having a morning coffee on the wrap around porch of Maple Glenn, or braving the chill in the air with an afternoon cup of hot cocoa, can also be loads of fun. Come back inside to warm up by the fireplace in the common area while sitting on the 'throne' (our unique up-cycled bottle cap chair) and enjoy a board game with loved ones. The Red Lion Inn designed Maple Glen with our guest's comfort in mind and it is lovely to hear from our guests that we have achieved that goal.

  • Great staff, comfortable rooms, but a bit long in the tooth

    by RevL05 on 2017-11-24 12:10 am

    O.K. I hinted that the Red Lion is somewhat old inside. Of course, it is nearly 250 years old! The staff couldn't be nicer, and the rooms are surely comfortable, but the ambiance of our two-room suite was that of my grandmother, and I'm going on 80. That's not so bad if you like wallpaper on all your walls. But the commode needed tightening of the screws holding the seat, the shower was a little finicky, and the heat was a bit difficult to keep adjusted properly. The bed, though, was quite comfortable, both rooms had TVs, and there was a refrigerator. We were in the main building on the third floor; so I feel impelled to point out that the nearest elevator, dating from the 19th century, requires a staff member to operate it, and the other requires a little hike to get to it from the dining room or main desk. The stairs are much closer, but are quite steep. So if you have mobility issues, you had best speak of them when you book a room.

    From the time we met Michelle Murphy until several days after our visit, we received the very best service. She listened carefully and delivered! Our corner room was so airy and nicely decorated.
    This is a very old hotel and furnished in antiques. Prepare to step back in history!
    The location right on Main Street is perfect with several block one can stroll and shop.
    The Norman Rockwell Museum was our reason for coming to Stockbridge. This is one of the best museum for learning about this illustration artist..learning his history and seeing all the wonderful magazine covers he did. A visit to his studio is so interesting and it's a pleasant walk to get there.
    The caf? serves lunch and when we were there one of the little boys who Rockwell painted was doing autographs...of course he is in his 70's now!!
    This location, Stockbridge is a great place to start a Fall foliage excursion.

    Thank you for your review. I'm delighted to hear that your group enjoyed working with Michelle; she is a true asset to our team. Every guest room and function space at The Red Lion Inn is different from the next and Michelle is amazing at listening to our guests needs and doing her very best to surpass their expectations. If you enjoy Norman Rockwell's art, then a stroll along our hallways is a must since we have one of the largest private collections in the United States of this classic Americana artist prints and a few originals displayed proudly though out our main building. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it may be interesting to know that our Rockwell table in the back of our Main Dining Room is called such because this was the table used in his famous Thanksgiving painting "Freedom from Want". We consider ourselves lucky to be steeped in so much local history and to have the opportunity to preserve this for future generations to enjoy.
