Established as a stage coach stop in 1773 and rebuilt in 1897, The Red Lion Inn is one of the few remaining American inns in continuous use since the 18th century. As immortalized in Norman Rockwell's painting Main Street, Stockbridge, the inn epitomizes New England tradition. When you step inside The Red Lion Inn, you enter a world full of friendly courtesy and hospitality. Relax amidst the charm of Staffordshire china, colonial pewter, and eighteenth century furniture as well as almost every contemporary comfort you might wish for such as Italian bedding, complimentary wireless internet, and cable television. When you're not unwinding in your home-away-from-home, venture out into the famous Berkshires of Massachusetts. Laura’s Tower Trail & Ice Glen Trail are just a short walk from the inn and let you bask in the stunning views on a hike. Or, you can visit the Norman Rockwell Musuem and catch a show at the Fitzpatrick Main Stage, Berkshire Theatre Group. There's so much to do and see here, that you will be tempted to extend your vacation!
