“Farm Wedding Lodging for many!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We had many people stay at the Red Lantern for a recent wedding and even the bridal party decided to stay on the eve of the wedding because it's so nice! We enjoyed having a large social area to relax and prepare for the wedding. Our guests enjoyed mingling over coffee and muffins. We were able to do laundry, make fresh coffee and hot chocolate whenever we wanted, chill our champagne, and socialize. The bed was extravagantly comfortable with plenty of blankets and pillows, the bathroom was well stocked with soap, shampoo, and big soft fluffy towels. The location is perfect right in the middle of town. The owner is so nice and accomodating and made sure we had everything we needed. Some of the guests were wary about shared bathrooms, but informed me later that they didn't have the first problem despite our stuffing the inn till it was full. The bathrooms are HUGE! (That's why we chose to prepare for the wedding here) nice showers with good water and water pressure, and great lighting. Nobody had to wait for a bathroom either, there are plenty, even with two families and many friends preparing for a wedding! I can't say enough great things about red lantern inn, whatever you may be considering I assure you this is the place to stay!

Room Tip: There is 1 room with a private bath, but I preferred the two downstairs rooms with 1.5 baths to them...

We got in Clifton Forge at around 8pm, and two other guests let us in. We grabbed our key to the room and settled in. The Inn was beautifully decorated, very clean, and to my surprise, a lot of goodies for the guests in the kitchen. We went on the hike next morning at the Douthat State Park, came back, and had breakfast in the kitchen. Never got to meet Jo Ann, and we checked ourselves out.

We felt like we were at home. A lot of common areas, magazines, and books. We felt very comfortable to walk around, and explore. We loved the upstairs sunroom. Very reasonable price for a semi B&B too. We will definitely come back if we have another chance.

Convenient to anything in Clifton Forge, this is a comfortable place and a good value. The rooms are fairly spacious and the beds comfortable. It's not far from the railroad but that isn't a problem (and besides, nothing in Clifton Forge is far from the railroad). The internet works well and is free. There's a serve-yourself continental breakfast in the kitchen and plenty of room downstairs to relax and socialize. I frequent the area and am happy to return every trip.

My husband and I just spent one night here. The rooms were clean and the snacks and breakfast offerings were perfect! The bathrooms were very large and wonderfully stocked! If you are ever in this area, you have to stay here! Woof-woof-woof.......even our dog, MacGregor loved it here!
