The Inn

The Red Lantern Inn is with walking distance of the Historic Masonic Theater and Amphitheater, Clifton Forge School of the Arts & The Mill, C&O Museum and Archives, Highlands Arts & Crafts Center and Gallery, Amtrak Station, Fire and Light Gallery, restaurants, and shops.

7 bedrooms and 4 ½ baths; living room and a media room both with cable TVs; fully stocked kitchen with continental breakfast and coffee available anytime; two porches; courtyard with gas grill, laundry facilities and WiFi.

The Red Lantern Inn is a 100 year old building in downtown Clifton Forge that has been totally renovated into casual overnight accommodation. In addition to the 7 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths, guests will share several common areas – living room with cable TV, fully stocked kitchen with coffee available and laundry facilities.

The Inn can be reserved by individual rooms, suite of two rooms or the entire Inn.  Special prices are offered for reservations of more than two rooms and for the entire building. The Red Lantern Inn is a great place for family reunions, class reunions, wedding parties and guests.

Reservations are required so you will need to contact us in one of the following ways: “Make a Reservation” link at the top of this site to book online. In addition, you can send us a message or you can call 540-797-5000.

I am excited about bringing overnight accommodations back to downtown Clifton Forge and hope that you will stop by and see us when you are in the area.

Jo Ann Carter Henson, Owner and Innkeeper
