Wonderful feel of the past. This is a very old hotel with a feeling of history. The staff are friendly and welcoming---The rooms are old and ours was very small (but air conditioned and quiet) as was the bathroom. The furnishings are calico and antique. There is a large porch with rocking chairs where people sit and chat or have... More

Confined for the better part of the last five weeks as I recovered from a total knee replacement, I was desperate for a getaway from sick bay. Fortunately, summer time in upstate NY provides many options. There is Saratoga, Lake George, the Adirondacks ... and right across the state line in western Massachusetts is the exquisite Red Lion Inn. Last... More

This was our first visit to this historic inn. We've been to quite a few older inns with varying degrees of character and this one rates very high with us. There are antiques everywhere and the furniture is well used and comfortable. It's obvious that this place is popular with a diversity of clientele and people watching is enjoyable, especially...

Our stay was in the Main Inn. Growing up in the area, it had always been the go to place for family pictures at Christmas time on the large front porch; or as we got older, for drinks and dinner with family and friends in The Lion's Den or The Tavern or in the Main Dining Room. As a child... More

It's such a special place from the rocking chairs on the front porch, gift shop, restaurants and pub. Today we ate on the "back" porch. From the moment we walked in Ahmet made us feel most welcome. He treated everyone the same but made each feel special we enjoyed our delicious lunch and will definitely go back.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. During the warmer months for lunch & dinner, we open our outdoor extension of the Widow Bingham’s Tavern, the “back” porch and the Courtyard. Reservations in the Courtyard are completely weather-dependent, so they are cancelled automatically if it rains, but we do have seating on the porch overlooking the... More

I have been coming to this hotel for 14 summers, and it is home to me when I am in the Berkshires. The hotel is a couple of centuries old, so it's got quaint and quirk. Don't expect it to be like the latest W - the decor is antique-y, and the vibe is laid back but also elegant. The... More

You will need a wheelbarrow to pick up on all the charm this place is putting down. History at every turn; living vibrant history from the Lincoln table in the lobby to the wide worn floorboards in the Widow Bingham's Tavern. Sitting in the nook there felt like we were joining the original patriots to plot the revolution. And the... More

We booked a room way in advance and got a great deal. We stayed in the Stevens House, one of the unattached guest homes a block away from the Inn. Because we paid about a third of what other people paid, we expected a dump, but were willing to try it because we were going to a concert at Tanglewood.... More

By far the best place to stay in the Berkshires. The history and the beauty of this inn is magnificent. The front desk clerk Yvette was amazing. We were greeted with a smile, everything was explained, places to visit were reviewed and all the special touches by her are to many to list. On entry into the room a plate... More

No doubt that this place has character and history, especially in the vast main building with its long corridors and antiques and our bedroom was charming. But the whole building smelled stale and unpleasant. We guessed the carpets hadn't been cleaned in a very long time! Such a let down as this definitely took the edge of our experience. They... More

We are always grateful for our guests’ feedback, & we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your room. It has been a challenge so far this year to air out the grand old Inn because of the extreme heat & humidity in the Berkshires these past few weeks.
