Since then, The Red Mill Inn has become one of the village's most prized functional historic landmarks. Every effort has been made to preserve the architectural and historical integrity of the building, which is enhanced by an appropriate interior motif, which reflects good taste in blending the old with the new.
One of a kind
The Red Mill Inn is unique in the fact that it draws clientele traveling by car and by boat as it is located along State Route 48 adjacent to Lock 24 of the New York State Canal System. During the navigation season many boaters traveling through stop off and stay at the Red Mill Inn to see the sites and patronize other local businesses.
The rooms are on three floors and guests have full access to the activity room and business area. The rooms include a variety of double queen and king size beds. Also featured is a variety of suites with panoramic views of the river, canal and surrounding landscape. The Bernhardt Suite offers a board-room atmosphere suitable for corporate meetings. The hotel is decorated in a "Mission" style, reflecting the simplicity of the Arts & Crafts movement in America a century or more ago. The overall decor preserves and accentuates the historical nature of the building.
The Red Mill is a green facility. That means it is energy efficient, and all cleaning supplies are made of natural ingredients not harmful to the environment. Coincidentally, The Red Mill Inn Store offers its own line of botanically-formulated personal products as well as souvenir glasses and mugs.
The handsomely appointed first floor banquet room is moderately priced and accommodates up to 150 people. The hotel has a list of caterers suited for any event. Assistant Manager Pam Christensen has become well known in this field and has received wide praise for her attention to detail.
Since it opened in 2006, The Red Mill Inn has hosted numerous events, one of the most notable being the annual four-day Wild Carp Classic that draws seasoned carp-angling professionals from a wide area.
One of the new amenities being planned is a small bar, with a flat-screen TV. It will feature a selection of New York State wines and bottled beers as well as soft drinks, but no draft.
