The Red Lion Inn and Main Street Hospitality Group

Stockbridge-based woman-led Main Street Hospitality Group runs several local, historic hotels, including the iconic Red Lion Inn. The Red Lion Inn has stood on the same spot in Stockbridge since 1773 and is celebrating 50 years of ownership by the Fitzpatrick family. Connecting Point’s Carolee McGrath sat down with Nancy Fitzpatrick, daughter of the Inn’s original owners, and third-generation family member Sarah Eustis, who currently serves as CEO of Main Street Hospitality Group, to learn more about the triumphs and challenges that come with running the historic property.

This story is the first in Connecting Point’s “Women Business Leaders in the Berkshires” special series. Each week in November, Connecting Point visits a woman-run business to learn about the challenges they face and the accomplishments they are most proud of.
