The inn is perfectly positioned - just minutes from popular breweries, restaurants, and shopping, while tucked away in a peaceful vignette with sublime mountain and garden views.
A Lincoln Classic: The Red Sleigh Inn, a historic home, was built in 1902 as the primary residence for James E. Henry and his family. Henry was best known for his logging legacy and controversial methods. Often, he was referred to as a "wood butcher". Why? For clear-cutting the local forests. Ironically, his home pays homage to wood with woodworking craftsmanship, beautiful hardwood floors, and ornate moldings.
