I had my wedding here on 8/17/18. I had reserved and paid in full March 2018. Sharada was my original planner over there. After I paid in full she was pretty hard to get ahold of. The very last minuet (night before rehearsal) she handed us off to Jen. So let me start here. The rehearsal: The venue was 1000 degrees and they refused to turn the AC on. The next morning (wedding day) we arrived at 9am and asked the front staff to make sure they have the AC throughout the hotel and they stated “it’s a never ending battle with the owner, we turn it on he turns it off”. Mind you it’s AUGUST! We had hair and makeup artist list coming to the venue to do all our hair and make up. We went into the bridal suite and did all our getting ready where we knew we would have a little cool air. After getting ready for we did our first look. We had to walk through the halls, wait in the halls and before we even did pictures we sweat though all our makeup and our hair was a mess from the heat and humidity in the hotel. We were all frustrated and devastated as we just spent hundreds of dollars to get ready and thousands of dollars to get married here and they refused to put the AC on for us. The waitstaff was great and the food was great. Drinks were WAY overpriced. You’re looking at $14 mixed drinks $7 beers and shots cost as much as my mortgage payment. Event staff were all great and Jen was also great, I am glad Sharada handed us off to her. She genuinely cared to make things go smoothly through the ceremony and up until cake cutting. So let’s get to after food and cake and dancing. They have a pool open for the guests. We had our kids in the pool and the groomsmen wanted to go in. They all got in the pool and the highly intoxicated owner came out and threaten to sue us if they didn’t get out of the pool! Sharada had the nerve to call the us and our guests inappropriate for swimming in a 1000 degree venue after I called about the owners drunken behavior.

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!!!

Let's just say that Red Lion Inn is a beautiful venue, has great food and has Tofik working for them, that's the ONLY three things that they have going for them. We were drawn to how beautiful the space was but it was a hassle to get anything done. To be honest, once we paid them, the email responses stopped and it was impossible to get a response to things. Sharada is not professional at all and rude...based on previous reviews we had read, she was supposed to be one of the good planners. We were planning our wedding from out of town and it was impossible to set up a meal tasting. Sharada was not understanding or accommodating. We literally called and emailed her numerous times to try and set up a time. She never picked up the phone and any responses to our email would sometimes take over a week. Some questions she never even bothered answering. At first we gave her the benefit of the doubt but this ended up being a regular trend. Tofik (sorry for spelling) is absolutely amazing! If only he could have been our planner. He was there the day before the wedding and day of and we couldn't have been more pleased with his support. He even helped set up the day before the wedding without any hesitation...we didn't even ask him to help but he insisted to help us; such a caring guy!!! Truly grateful for him!! He clearly deserves a raise. One of the worst parts about them was that they tried to add on additional charges without our permission. After the wedding, we were sent an bill for additional charges from Sharada which was NOT true. Thankfully, we included a clause in our contract that stated that additional charges must be ok'ed with us first...which they did not. We were just blown away that Sharada would try to scam us in the end. Make sure that if you have your wedding here to have every little detail in the contract!!!!! In summary, the venue itself is beautiful...just a a lot of added stress from the people (except Tofik).

Red Lion Inn was the perfect venue for our dream winter wedding! We did our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in Lion's Hall. They truly have running weddings down to a science - the timing, flipping the dining area, working with vendors, etc. Working with Sharada leading up to the wedding was great. We asked her many questions over several months and she was responsive and thorough with her answers. A true professional. She's also extremely flexible with allowing you to drop in to check out the space as needed. Sharada hustled the day of, along with Toufik--they make an amazing team! This venue is pricey, but when you take into account their experience running weddings, their efficiency, the fact that they provide tables/chairs/linens/etc., perks like after party "cave" (so awesome!), and the delicious food, you're really getting a lot for your money. Not to mention how unbelievably gorgeous it is! Many people said it was the best and most beautiful wedding they'd been to. We're so happy we went with Red Lion Inn!

The day of was absolute perfection but the year leading up to the wedding was horrible. We went through 6 wedding coordinators— during the 13 months we worked with them, they changed staff numerous times. Not once, were we notified by the RL that we would be working with someone different. The entire process became so complicated because each coordinator (and owner) would promise us things and then they’d get lost in the shuffle when someone else would step in. We were told different room rates, pricing, and when our guests would inquire about rooms at the RI and CHI, it literally took them weeks to get a hold of someone they could speak too. As you can imagine it was extremely embarrassing for numerous guests to have to call my husband and I to tell us they’ve called for two weeks without someone picking up and when they did they were overcharged on the room rate. All in all, the day did go smooth and went off without a hitch much to our surprise. Our coordinator, Jen (who we only had met two weeks prior to the wedding) worked really hard to make up for the 13 months prior. Toufik was unbelievable. He’s literally everywhere and anywhere. He’s constantly there making sure everything is running smoothly and efficiently! Jen and Toufik really were unbelievable the day of the wedding! The venue is amazing. It’s so unique. The fact that everything you need is right on site is so convenient. I had so many guests and wedding party members comment about how great it was to not have to worry about driving after a night of drinking. The food was wonderful. One thing I did notice after the fact was that we were served the wrong salads— we had chosen another type of salad and for whatever reason got another. The cave is awesome, a great place for all ages to keep the party going and grab something to eat after a night of dancing. Overall a great place if you’re willing to stay on top of them. Jen and Toufik are keepers!

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!

My husband and I got married @ the Red Lion Inn on Nov 17 2017. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue. Everyone was very attentive to our needs, especially Jen ( the coordinator), Tofik who did just about everything, and to Katie at the front desk. The food was incredible too. Everyone is still talking about our wedding, saying how It is the best wedding they have every been to. Thank you to everyone at the Red Lion for making my wedding a dream come true!!!!

I am so happy that my husband and I chose the Red Lion Inn for our October 22nd wedding. We had the ceremony and reception on site and the entire day was magical. Our wedding coordinator, Jen, was amazing. She was beyond accommodating and worked with us to bring our vision to life. She went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. Jen was extremely responsive to all emails and calls and is so organized. She met with my mother and I several times in order to get in all of the details! The Red Lion is so lucky to have her on board as one of their coordinators. I must be honest, the beginning of my planning process with the Red Lion was not the smoothest. There was unfortunately quick turn over in coordinators/management and we had a very hard time getting in touch with someone when we had questions and were in the planning process. Once Jen came on board that quickly changed. She made the entire process so easy!! The Red Lion Inn surpassed my expectations in all areas. The food was outstanding. Our family and friends are still raving about it! Everything was delicious, full of flavor and presented beautifully. The service was also great! Bar and wait staff were extremely responsive to guests and were very pleasant :) After the reception, we had the after party in "The Cave" and continued the celebrations. We had buffalo chicken and pizza served down there which was great! It was such a fun night. I would also like to thank the staff Toufig (hopefully I spelled that correctly) for being extremely helpful during the reception/after party and in the morning. He also went out of his way to deliver some of our cupcakes with a bottle of champagne to our room for after the festivities. Thank you so much! Everything came together so well. I would highly recommend the Red Lion Inn for your wedding, and Jen as a wedding coordinator if she's available!

When searching for the wedding venue of my dreams, I knew it needed to be elegant, rustic, accommodating, and beautiful. The Red Lion Inn was everything I could have asked for and more! The grounds in which the Red Lion Inn has to offer is well maintained, beautifully designed, and offers so much space for the guests to enjoy. Everything from the cocktail hour, drinks, entrees, waitstaff, and bartenders was picture perfect and helped make my wedding day so enjoyable. The driving force behind my wedding day was Jen, the event coordinator at the Red Lion Inn. Jen was knowledgeable about the venue, responsive to my emails, organized, professional and most importantly, caring. Jen put so much effort into my wedding, as if she was the one getting married! I can't thank her enough for making my day run so smooth. The after party was held at The Cave which is located on-site and offered a place for all the guests to enjoy late night snacks such a cheeseburgers, chicken fingers, and french fries. We had music, drinks, and food to keep the party going! The next morning, the Red Lion Inn set up a brunch for any guests who stayed the evening. The food was delicious and the guests thoroughly enjoyed another opportunity for everyone to celebrate. Prior to booking The Red Lion Inn, I read reviews on this website from past brides who seemed unsatisfied with the venue. I am so glad that I was able to experience this venue and all it has to offer, first hand. Looking back at my wedding I would not change a single thing, as it was a dream come true!

We recently had a wedding here and chose to get married on a Thursday night due to availability and affordability. From the very beginning the coordinator we worked with, Sharada, was very responsive and great to work with. The night of support staff was also wonderful from the bartenders and servers, but also, Toufik, who really helped make the barn look exactly how we pictured. They even made it possible to find a very specific beer my fiance and i really enjoy that is difficult to find. They really know what they are doing with weddings being held at their venue and we found they are really flexible in letting you make the day what you want. I also like that when we were unsure of a decision, Sharada, was really able to help make great recommendations that really fit with our vision. There was initially some confusion with booking hotel rooms, but about half way throughout planning there was one contact we worked with specifically, which made it much easier and more organized.
