I have spent decades at the Red Lion as my children grew up and then...life changes..and I wound up getting Married (again) at the Inn with my grown children witnessing once again the magic of this beautiful place. Today we met my daughter and her boyfriend for brunch in the main dining room. It was a ten! The panzanella salad and devil eggs were our shared apps along with Prosecco to share and some Bloody Marys. NEXT! We had the traditional turkey sandwich, the fried chicken sandwich, chicken and waffles and my husband had the steak and eggs. UNREAL....dessert was a shared chocolate torte with coffee. The table was perfect, the service was spot on and the harp player (the same beautiful woman that played when my daughter who I was there with was a child)....this place never disappoints and they did an incredible job for Easter. THANK YOU SO MUCH Red Lion. You mean so much to my family! <3. We appreciate all of you. Read less

We stayed in on of the village suites and it was an overall ok stay. Nice staff. Plenty of space and easy parking nearby. But there is not a lot of noise insulation between the rooms and the heating goes a little bitty in the evening and early night. I can also not recommend a ground floor room as we basically had the blinds and curtains closed… Read more

But there is not a lot of noise insulation between the rooms and the heating goes a little bitty in the evening and early night. I can also not recommend a ground floor room as we basically had the blinds and curtains closed the entire weekend or everyone would have been able to look in. Both other guests and whoever walked by outside. Read less

We are staying in a 3rd floor room with a sitting area. The wall paper is peeling off the walls and there are no curtains in the windows, just broken rods. They put a piece of particle board under the mattress. It seems apparent that building maintenance is not a priority. But with covid, no wonder. But curtains on the windows to dull the light… Read more

But curtains on the windows to dull the light and noise from the street and to cheer the room would be most welcome. Read less

Very historic, 248 years old. When you walk into your room, you are stepping back in time, except for the electric fireplace and the TV. Very charming. So much to look at in every hallway and the many sitting rooms. Even a piano you can play in the lobby. And the food is so delicious!!

We stayed a couple of nights at the Red Lion Inn while visiting family in the Berkshires. This is the same charming historic inn you can find in Norman Rockwell’s Christmas painting of Stockbridge.

We stayed a couple of nights at the Red Lion Inn while visiting family in the Berkshires. This is the same charming historic inn you can find in Norman Rockwell’s Christmas painting of Stockbridge. I felt lucky to be able to stay in such a storied property. They have done a marvelous job maintaining the property. I loved that it was all decorated for the holidays. The check-in staff was friendly and welcoming. Our room was small but clean, and our bed was super comfy. You could tell that they had just polished the gleaming light fixture and bathtub. It took a long time for the water to heat up at times, but there was plenty of it once it got going. The windows are thin (lots of street noise), but the heater in our room worked great. There was even a heater in our bathroom right under the towel rack which made our towels nice and cozy. We had dinner in the pub which still requires reservations (the main dining room was fully booked). The steak and swordfish were superbly cooked. The mussels and desserts were also good. Service was a little slow though they were friendly. I would recommend this inn to anyone looking to stay in or near Stockbridge, especially during the holidays! Read less
