What a wonderful hotel...olde world charm, friendly service & good accommodation. We stayed for two nights, had breakfast twice & dinner on one of our nights. The room was full of period furniture in keeping with the olde world feel of the hotel. So much to see in the hotel...antiques, curios etc. Breakfast in the dining room was table service and the food was of a high quality. Sitting on the veranda sipping a glass of wine watching the world go by is a must. Dinner was excellent and our server Matt made it extra special making sure we had a great night. The Red Lion is a Stockbridge must if you are in the area 👍 Read less

Don’t get me wrong: I have been a long-time fan of the old lion & have stayed here several times. This trip I booked a room on the 2nd floor & didn’t realize that a “shared bathroom” meant that you share with the ENTIRE 2nd floor. Be sure to ask about this when booking your room.

Our recent stay at the Red Lion was our third and i hope it won't be our last. This place has quite a history going back to the 1700's and is really fun if one appreciates history and the feeling that is apart of being in a very old and beautiful place.

Our recent stay at the Red Lion was our third and i hope it won't be our last. This place has quite a history going back to the 1700's and is really fun if one appreciates history and the feeling that is apart of being in a very old and beautiful place. Our room actually had a large rope fastened near a window with a card that explained that in times past this rope was a fire escape. The furnishings all appeared to be antiques and the room was comfortable and attractive. I have eaten in the main dining room and the less formal tavern and both are very good. I might give the dining room a slight edge as the cost is about the same as the tavern but the menu is broader and the atmosphere more upscale but dressy casual attire is most common. Try to allow time to browse the nearby shops and the Norman Rockwell Museum Read less

The history of this building and business is fascinating. They have kept the design and artifacts to help you relive the history. Our lunch was served in the Tavern, with the original floor planks. Our waiter, Christopher, was such a gentleman. Our food was served timely and certainly delicious. Makes you want to sit on the inviting front porch,… Read more

I had always wanted to eat here while traveling, but it had never worked out. This time, after visiting the Norman Rockwell Museum, I finally made it for lunch. The lobster roll was by far the best I’d ever eaten. It tasted of an abundance of butter. I savored every bite. The homemade chips and side salad were the perfect complement, and the price of $26 was similar to that of other lobster rolls on our trip but was far superior to each of them! Our waiter was also excellent as was the setting. We did not stay at the hotel, but I would like to some time. Read less
