This inn is the real deal. It's origins can be traced to the the late 1700's. It's charm is sustained by care in decor and furnishings. Service is consistently attentive, warm and caring. During the winter, reserving a room with a gas fireplace is especially inviting. Dinner meets a high standard of quality for food, preparation, presentation and quality of service. This was a memorable visit. We unhesitatingly recommend it to those who want a quiet yet dignified retreat.

We had so much fun here. We were in a suite room that was huge. I think it was called the porch suite so it was two big rooms and a lovely porch. It had a full kitchen which we did not use, but it was really clean and comfortable. I read the reviews about the place being a bit beat, and yes, there are some stains and worn furniture, but it is vintage stuff and antiques and everything was very clean so it did not bother us in the least. The staff was nice. The food in the hotel restaurants is a little pricey and okay, but still fun to eat in the hotel.

We stayed here in the winter for a long weekend. What a rambling, old, place. The bed was really squeaky... as in everytime you moved in bed, it woke me up. The rooms were clean. The downstairs bar/restaurant was a lot of fun with music and great service. We did not eat dinner here. Such a quintessential place with New England charm.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us! The Red Lion Inn is a grand old place that has lots of majestic charm and character. There is always another spot to discover and enjoy while roaming our rambling hallways, another piece of furniture or art to study, or another room to stay in overnight since no two accommodations are alike. Our pub, The Lion’s Den, offers nightly entertainment, varying from blues, or rock ‘n roll, to classic country, and daily meal specials with no cover charge. We hope that when you visit us again that you can join us for a delicious meal sourced from local ingredients in one of our three restaurants on property.

Originally built around 1773-but as most wood structure it was burned down and rebuilt in the 1800's and added onto over time. I swear the bar room floor on the main floor is the original wood plank floor from the original structure-wide and foot worn down. As with any structure of this vintage the floors are so uneven you could drop a marble and it would wander the place for a half hour. Old artwork and photography adorn most of the Inn as well as true vintage furniture-there is a brochure that describes the origin of many of the pieces. The staff is extremeely courteous and friendly. We were there for only one night visiting a friend-but had dinner in the main dinning room which is opulently appointed. I had a glass of the house Cabernet which is one of the best I've ever tasted. However my favorite way to rate a restaurant is the Onion Soup which for my taste was undercooked and bland. However the Salmon dish I had was fantastic. We wnt downstairs to an after dinner drink at The Lion's Den a very nice place to hang out-but as good as the singer was on stage he was loud enough to to have been heard by the last row at Woodstock-made a normal conversation very difficult. If you go do not miss The Norman Rockwell Mueseum nearby and supreme delight all in itself!

Room tip: They are all different we've stayed twice there-no 2 are alike.

A nice but frigid getaway this weekend with some highs and lows:

We were in a very small room and unfortunately any time the people above us walked around, we could hear the squeaky floor. Enough to wake us up. And they went to bed really late. Shower had some issues with consistent water temp - was super cold then went to burn-you-hot. The wait staff wasn't super friendly. One we had was miserable. Truly. The breakfast was a buffet as they had a limited menu due to a kitchen renovation (they called to let us know in advance which was very good of them). But geez, $15.00 was absurd for what was offered. I'm still irritated about it. You could get a better one free at Comfort Inn. And no coffee is offered in the am. I sent my husband down the street when it was 3 degrees out.

The good... The place is lovely if old stuff is your thing (looks just like our house including the antiques so maybe we should stay at the porches next time); the food was good at the main dining room (great wine list) and in the pub. I love how you can get a drink and find a spot to sit. We enjoyed the back parlor. Nice and warm with a gas fireplace. Overall a nice respite from Trump but I'm still tired.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us! The Red Lion Inn has been welcoming guests with open arms for over two centuries, and the creaky floors, warm antiques, and classic, thoughtful food are all part of the experience of stepping back to a different time in American history, away from the hustle and bustle of our chaotic lives. Part of that experience is genuine hospitality. I am very disappointed to hear that this was not the case during your breakfast buffet and that you were not able to partake in our complimentary coffee that is offered daily from 6-7:30 am in our Widow Bingham’s Tavern. We do hope to welcome you back soon to prove to you that the service you received that morning is an exception and not the rule. We aim to provide a memorable escape for everyone who seeks asylum from the exhausting pace of the present by offering a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere for all to enjoy.
