Just got home from a wonderful vacation at The Red Latern Inn. Joan, her staff and Bella were warm, welcoming and wonderful. Our stay meant traveling to the Greenbrier Classic but the 30 minute drive everyday from Tuesday through Sunday wasn't bad because of the wonderful accomodations. Most people staying at the inn were all volunteers for the Greenbrier Classic... More

Clifton Forge is a sleepy mountain town tha is coming alive again after many years. The inn is a perfect addage to this re-awakening. Nature abounds in the surrounding mountains. It's a 35 minute ride over the Clifton Forge Mountain to go to the Jefferson Pools near the Homestead for an amazing minreal soak. The Dauthat State Park is one... More

.....than the mountain highlands in spring. And no better "base of operations" than the Red Lantern. It's a combination of staying at your aunt's place and a well-run, efficient, small hotel. As operated by JoAnn Gideons, it is a clean, warm, friendly place to stay, and at a very competitive price. From the Red Lantern, one can enjoy all that... More

The location, price, and management of this Inn make the Red Lantern Inn the perfect place to stay for a short or longer-term visit. Walking distance to the C&O Historical Society, biking distance to Douthat State Park, a short drive to Lexington, Roanoke, Warm Springs, VA - even West Virginia (with the Greenbriar and Lewsiburg) is within striking distance of...

We recently stayed at the Red Lantern Inn in April for my 40th. This B&B is like a home away from home. Fortunately for us, we were the only ones booked in for 3 nights, so had the whole place to ourselves. The service was wonderful, everything you could possible need and more was avaliable to use. The furnishing were... More

We loved our room, it was charming and comfortable with a first rate bath. The ambiance of the whole Inn was warm and inviting. We would stay there again and recommend it highly.

It's hard to find the words to say just how great the Red Lantern Inn is. It's beautifully furnished and decorated, and extremely comfortable - just what I needed after a long day walking. As a solo traveller, I was made to feel very welcome - like I was part of the family! This is the first review I've written... More

The Red Lantern Inn was by far the best B&B I have ever stayed out hands down. Thank you Jo Ann for providing a first class experience from beginning to end. The Inn and rooms were clean and comfortable, and the entire place was warm and cozy with very nice décor. This was a place to stay before the Odyssey... More
