  • Great Food in an Historic Setting

    by lvolpato on 2018-02-17 04:04 pm

    Start with making reservations in advance. Arrive early and enjoy a brew at the tavern while you wait for the first seating at 5:30. Either setting: the tavern, a more intimate relaxed room; or the main dining room, larger and a little more formal. Jeans ok in either. Service was excellent! The room was rustic elegant. Drinks and our two appetizers arrived quickly. We shared a main course of turkey dinner. All was more than enough food. Enjoy the adjacent shops on Main St. before or after. I highly recommend.

  • How the Mighty Have Fallen

    Well, to start off with the good, dinner at Widow Bingham's was excellent. Now, for the rest of the story. My wife and I just wanted to get away for a peaceful, relaxing stay at one of our (now used to be) favorite Inns in the northeast. We booked a room at Maple Glen and were very pleased for the first hour. We soon realized that there was a VERY large group staying at various houses tied to the Red Lion, presumably all there for a wedding, and that this group basically took over the common area in Maple Glen. Relax by the fireplace? Forget it. There was no less than 25 people in the "living room" at all times and, judging by the amount of wine bottles and food that was spread out, they were claiming squatters rights for the night. While we both understood that this large group was guests of the Inn, just as we were, they made it impossible for anybody else to enjoy the accommodations. The fact that several young children were (literally) running and yelling through the house until almost 11:00 p.m. just poured a little more lemon juice in the wound. I am assuming that this group also had plans to reconvene the following morning as, by 8:30 a.m. when I took a shower, the hot water was long gone.
    Again, dinner at Widow Bingham's was excellent, though. Lastly, I booked our room through the Red Lion Inn website and purchased a $100.00 dinner credit at the time I made the reservation. Well, they charged me for our excellent dinner, added a "mystery" charge of $6.26 and, as of the time of this review, have not responded to neither my email nor call to the Inn to discuss the billing errors.
    Obviously, the Red Lion is steeped in history and will always have a certain amount of appeal. Perhaps their focus should be upon their current condition(s) and why more and more negative reviews are surfacing.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review The Red Lion Inn. I appreciate that we also had the pleasure of speaking earlier on the phone about the dining credit, the mini bar items you were mistakenly charged for and the credit we placed on your card at checkout. The Inn is staffed twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week so we can address any issues and ensure our guests' comfort. If we had but known you were disrupted by the large congregation of other guests, and the unsupervised children, we could have tried to move you to a room with its own fireplace that you could have enjoyed at your leisure. I am delighted that you and your wife were able to relish an excellent dinner in our Widow Bingham's Tavern. I hope that after speaking with me this morning that we have cleared up any confusion and that we can entice you to stay at The Red Lion Inn once more to prove your experience was the exception and not the rule.

  • Perfect Winter Weekend

    by on 2018-02-08 02:50 pm

    The Red Lion Inn is elegant, historic, original furnishings circa late 1800s. Plus modern facilities, pool and hot tubs. And still you feel as if you're back in time. The staff is so friendly. We felt like we lived there ??

    Thank you for taking the time to review The Red Lion Inn and your recent stay with us. We have been welcoming travelers since 1773, but have made sure to make an update or two over the years in order to offer comforts such as complimentary WiFi, free parking, some bathrooms with soaking tubs, and our famous, heated outdoor pool that we keep open year-round. It is such fun to see our guests enjoying the bone deep warmth in the middle of a February snow storm! While we've updated many amenities on the property, we've also made a commitment to preserve our historic integrity. This includes making the necessary updates to our 1896 Otis bird-cage elevator so our guests can enjoy an accompanied ride to their rooms, saving the original floor boards in our Widow Bingham's Tavern and keeping the ropes in our guest rooms that used to serve as fire escapes for the upper floors, but are now a reminder of a by-gone era. We are delighted that your enjoyed your time with us & look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

  • Steo back in time.

    by Charles S on 2018-01-25 10:57 am

    Stop here if only to have a drink on the wonderful porch. There is a great gift shop that has very unusual items. Never got a room here, but it sure looks like a fun place. The restaurant has a nice menu and the service is great.

  • Great history and beautiful furnishings

    Wonderful 2day stay. Quaint with a hint of sophistication. We had great food and service.It was a special occasion so we paid the price but would not pay the 400 dollars + in the peak season.
    Our friends needed a handicapped room which worked well. We would go there again.
