I can not say enough good things about the Red Lion Inn and their staff. After finding out that the only date still available in October 2018 was in a Friday was a Friday night I almost walked away but after viewing the venue and speaking with Bill, I could not walk away...which turned out to be the best decision. Being a type A control freak this allowed me to start setting up a few days in advance and then fully enjoy my wedding day. The whole staff from was truly amazing leading up to the night and through. For the perfect wedding venue I would recommend this to everyone!Sent on 10/29/2018

Our wedding at the Red Lion Inn in 7/1/2018 was an absolute DREAM!!!! It was everything we ever wanted and more. The day went perfectly to plan. Our experience working with the Red Lion Inn was terrific and it had a lot to do with our/The Red Lion Inn wedding coordinator Sharada! She was AMAZING, so professional, responsive, kind and extremely accommodating. We had many folks from Europe at the wedding and the little personal details that she made happen were recognized and appreciated, this meant so much to us. The venue speaks for itself - it really is so beautiful, the food was absolutely delicious, and Sharada’s day of team was GREAT! The cave was super fun as well. Highly recommend the late night snacks! It is such a special venue. I had full confidence that the day would go smoothly and was VERY impressed with every aspect and detail of the day. It really did go off without a hitch - we cannot thank Sharada enough for all her hard work!!! Looking forward to celebrating our first wedding anniversary back at the Red Lion Inn. If you are looking for a stunning venue, professional staff, and one AMAZING wedding coordinator Sharada and the Red Lion Inn is your spot!!!! THANK YOU for making our wedding such a dream come true!!!Sent on 07/14/2018

Our daughter Lindsay was married there last Friday November 17, 2017. This was one of the most incredible nights of our lives. There was no regrets. We literally racked our brains to see if there was anything missed or overlooked. Nope. The Red Lion Inn was, by far, the coolest event venue for anyone who is into the rustic scene. It was my daughter's absolute dream wedding. The food was absolute perfection. The filet mignon was so soft you could have cut it with a spoon! Then there is the after party at the Cave. What a cool place. Our guests couldn't get over the food that was served there either. The sliders, pizza, and chicken fingers were to die for! Everyone kept commenting about that! That leaves the staff. What can I say about them? Everyone was incredibly accommodating from Katie (at the front desk, to Jen (the wedding coordinator) , to Tofik who does absolutely everything for everyone. They are an incredible asset to the Red Lion Inn. They were absolutely wonderful to our family. They made sure to keep the communication open and kept their word in everything they promised. Our only regret is that the evening is over. Thank you so much for your professionalism and making the night one of the best memories for our family and everyone else who attended. AWESOME!Sent on 11/21/2017
What a beautiful venue The Red Lion is! We have filmed weddings here, and part of the reason our videos come out so beautiful is because of the venue. The people who run The Red Lion are top notch.
just a great place!
