Exquisite!! A very special memorable evening. We took the advice from the waiter and enjoyed every mouthful. I could take all night describing each course but it would take too long. We enjoyed 5 mouthwatering dishes. Do yourself a favor if you haven't been there, book a table & treat yourself to one of the best meals you will have... More

Stayed for two nights over a weekend to attend a birthday celebration. We had rented the whole Inn which was great. Everyone said we felt like we were in someone's home and not a hotel. Every amenity was available to us and the decor homey and interesting. Owners were lovely and so accommodating. Love the town of Clifton Forge. So... More

JoAnn made us feel right at home from the start. Beds were comfortable and the location was very convenient. Now, if you were hoping to be coddled with a gourmet breakfast, this is not the place, but don't let that stop you. The supply of breads and pastries for a do-it-yourself Continental morning repast was always more than adequate. Other... More

After hiking a section of the Appalachian Trail, I found myself in Clifton Forge with a day to kill before the Amtrak back to New York. Owner JoAnn wouldn't take no for an answer, so I found myself in her ultra clean and tastefully furnished B&B with guests far more discriminating than myself. Conveniently located across the street from a... More

My family and I decided we were able to make a family reunion at the last minute and needed a place to stay. Fortunately for us I called the Red Lantern Inn first. The Inn was immaculate and comfortable on all levels, surrounded by mountains in the quaint little town of Clifton Forge it provided a picturesque setting right in... More

Beautiful bed and breakfast in a much needed area! Im originally from this area and always looking for place to stay when my whole family comes. We were so happy when we found this place. We stayed upstairs and reserved 3 rms and had whole house to ourselves. Do reasonable rates, military rates and no tax if paying in cash.... More

Of the seven rooms available our family took up three, all upstairs. The beds were wonderful and comfortable, The Inn was very clean and always plenty of fresh breakfast food in the kitchen (which my teenage grandson loved, because he likes to eat in the middle of the night). The bathrooms were always ready with fresh towels and anything you... More

I travel with a Beatles tribute band called The WannaBeatles. Last night was our second stay at the lovely Red Lantern Inn. It's charming, immaculate, friendly, and memorable. Jo Ann is a natural hostess, who made us feel like family. A large tub for a nice hot bath, a variety of well-kept bedrooms, and a handy kitchen with plenty of... More

The reviews were great, but The Red Lantern Inn far exceeded my expectations. Lovely, immaculately clean, great location, well stocked! The restoration of this building was obviously done with love and with high quality efforts and materials. We enjoyed a drive through Douthat State Park, Ice cream at Buckhorne Country Store, and dinner at Vic's...gotta love those local eateries. Highly... More

If you are looking for a wonderful inn near Douthat State Park, you need to stay at the Red Lantern Inn. It has everything you look for in an inn: comfortable beds, beautiful bathrooms (don't let the sharing of bathrooms scare you - there are plenty to go around), country chic decor in the common areas and rooms, ultra clean,...
