The holidays are in full swing at the Red Lion Inn and Olde Salt House, and what better place to celebrate the holiday season than in the charming seaside town of Cohasset!

From the annual Lobster Trap Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on Cohasset Harbor to a festive Christmas Eve Brunch at the Tavern to a merry holiday stroll in Cohasset Village, there are so many ways to get in the spirit this year…

The Most Wonderfund Time of the Year

We’ve partnered with the Wonderfund to help make this holiday season merry and bright for children that are engaged with the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families. More than 50,000 children throughout the state have an open case with DCF, and come from situations where they have been impacted by trauma, abuse and neglect. With your support, we can help ensure that every child in Massachusetts involved with the DCF experiences the magic of the holiday season.

We will be collecting toys at The Red Lion Inn beginning November 28th through December 20th. There will be a designated area in the lobby to donate unopened presents.

We thank you for your kindness and generosity this holiday season!

December Line-Up in the Cave

To welcome the holiday season, we’re bringing new acts to the Cave! Along with live music, we’re hosting a comedy show on December 1st to kick off the month of December. Join us on Thursday nights in the cave from 8pm-11pm, tickets can be purchased here. We’ll see you there!

Additionally, the Tavern will be closed on Christmas Day and NYE, and Olde Salt house will be closed on Christmas Eve and Day, and NYE and NYD.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday season, from all of us at the Red Lion Inn, Tavern and Olde Salt House!
