We love the charm of special occasion and Holidays, having dinner and staying over. The first thing we noticed was the outside of the buildings looking tired. We noticed the same peeling paint on our last visit I booked our visit 4 months earlier. There was no room in the Inn (in the time frame we'd asked for so ) we're placed in the Stevens House (down the street about a block). Our first impression was the front was unkempt, unmowed, and weren't sure this was the place. Continued to the back door. We were greeted with a back landing that was soft to the feet ( soft uneven old wood, not good for the elderly), window trim falling off the window and peeling paint Some nice corn stalks by the stairs but a 4 foot weed right behind it. You come to expect nice inviting buildings. The room was clean but a propped up bed with a 2x6 and should have cut it shorter. The Inn Keeper or Owner could've mowed the lawn. What about that 20 Dollar renovation fee they tack on? What's it used for? The owners home? The Owners are letting the Red Lion suffer. Get one of the maint. people to go around and do line of sight painting. Scape and paint areas that need it no need to do the whole building. Treat returning customers to a continental breakfast or discount to the restaurant. It is the Inns saving grace. The Cooks, Sarah and waitstaff were fantastic. You cannot rely on one area to survive, If you can't handle maintaining properties sell them,"focus" on the Red Lion, it's a gem don't lose it!

Warm and cozy and very busy during fall leaf peeping. If you wish to dine in the restaurant or tavern, reservations are advisable or you may be turned away. All staff, though very busy, were welcoming, helpful, and checked back several times. Guests are asked to wear masks when not dining (or drinking!) and all the guests I saw were masked. Live music in the lobby last night (Wednesday) a pleasure. Although coolish, a number of people took advantage of the lovely front porch.

We did not rent in this nice big ol' wooden structure. State of the Art way back in the day. Cozy inside for sure; typical New England atmosphere. Lotta eye candy for antique seekers to ogle and a gift shop. Main dining room is where we ate dinner once and menu is a limited, brief comfort food list. Food is tasty, good portions, not exciting but it's not that kinda place. Watermelon salad and shrimp bucatini are tasty treats. Darlene took care of us and she excelled in providing a superb dining experience at her tables. She is jewel. I been to bars around the world and I have never been tossed out before for any reason, until Red Lion. How can this happen? During peak hours it is well nigh impossible to get a drink in theTavern near the dining room. It is under sized and under staffed. Staff is extremely stressed by the sheer weight of the demand. Cozy, tiny space, not built for crowds. We got extremely lucky and found a couple of drinkers exiting two seats at the end of the bar moments after we elbowed our way thru the throng. Fortune smiled upon us. We sat down and within 15 minutes we got our two wines, as did the couple before us; here we will wait for our dining reservation, we thought. The remaining few bar stools were filled with regulars, drinkers and diners. A young couple arrived who knew some of the staff and they chatted amicably with the bartender and staff. We ordered a second wine at which point the bartender told us to leave so she could seat two diners as she, the bar boss, has the right to give reservations for her seats. OK so she's the Boss. More to the point she crystalized the economic equation at working against us and said she makes more money on diners than drinkers and as everyone else at the bar seemed to be locals and regulars, we needed to give way for her better paying friends. Ouch! Luckily our consolation prize was her advice that we go find someplace in the building to finish the second wines, but not here, so we weren't exactly kicked to the curb. Diner in the Main room as anti-climatic after our ejection. That was crazy and unique. We'll always remember this place.

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us feedback Michaelz. Allow me to apologize profusely for your experience in the Tavern. I can assure you that the service and comments you experienced are TOTALLY unacceptable and I will personally be following up with the staff member. It would be my pleasure to welcome you back to experience the Tavern and Inn in a manner more reflective of our service standards. Please feel free to reach out to me directly so that I can rectify this with you.

The hotel is pretty and well Maintained buts it’s also haunted and that’s a pretty scary experience, I did not get to sleep well at all . Also due to COVID they do not make the room during your stay which for a 300 usd a nightly stay is … not nice at all , ( most hotels do now after one year and a half of experience and knowing protocols ) . The restaurant closes at 8:30 pm and it’s hard to get food around the area after that time .

I am very sorry to hear that you did not sleep well. Some of our guests who are more "in tune" with the afterlife have mentioned seeing a gentleman in a top hat on the front porch. Speaking only for myself, I have never experienced anything supernatural and would certainly not describe the property as "haunted". Our cleaning protocols as relates to Covid-19 are certainly robust and they remain in place. We do offer daily service for those that request it. Most of our guests still prefer to not have anyone else enter their room during their stay. The town does become rather sleepy in the evening, but there are certainly places in the area that are open later for dining. Our front desk team is always happy to point guests in the right direction. Please feel free to reach out to me directly to further discuss your stay. Thank you!

This New England treasure pops out of a Norman Rockwell Saturday Evening Post illustration. At the center of town, stop by here for people watching and good food. A bed and breakfast feel but also its own luxury in a hiking haven for farm-to-table feasts come Fall.

Thank you very much for visiting and taking the time to leave feedback. Our connection to Rockwell goes much further than the feel - the painting Freedom from Want used the Inn as the backdrop to the family. When next you are here, allow us to show you some of the Rockwell paintings we have.
