We stayed with a small group at the Red Lantern Inn. It's a clean, cozy, welcoming place and the owner, Jo Ann Gideons, and her assistant Esther, couldn't have been more helpful. We will definitely be coming back! Clifton Forge is an attractive small town with good food and an interesting history, very walkable.
